Ah Opal...



So ya, I guess this is over. Victory! I didn't expect too much out of this though. Ending also seemed a bit open ended imo.

So we're finally finished with this parody series 3 cour in the making...

A parody of the console wars between Sega and Nintendo in the 80s and 90s that took itself seriously a little too much at times. To me the anime didn't feel like it knew what it wanted to be straddling between campiness and comedy

So it mainly ends with the main character getting his own father's life for strengthening his own power. That was sad.

You can read the web manga at: http://oab.sakura.ne.jp/gia/index.shtml
It's still in Japanese though and more like rough sketches rather than a proper manga art.

I guess the art probably better in tankoubon version, at least the web manga is free to read though.

Not much to say, it was a parody so I wasn't really expecting much. It was interesting and only 3 episodes so fun I guess.

5/10

This felt like a letdown, since it didn't really get anywhere story wise. They should make a sequel to this that is hopefully a full series so that we can get some closure to this.

Meh, gave it a 5, which was probably a bit generous. I loved the idea of a console war gaming parody, but it was poorly executed imo. It definitely needed more episodes. Oh well.

They only adapted the 1st arc which is just introduction and really weak compared to later arcs.

There will be 2 OVAs bundled with each volume of the DVD, one featuring Myomuto story and the other one featuring Crystal story.

I think Crimson doesn't have enough budget to hire the VAs, that's why they only do the 1st arc. As the stories progresses, the number of characters in this series is almost 10 times more than this (though some of them only side characters and has brief appearance).

This would be okay if this that simply the third episode of the season -- unfortunately, it's the last part of the entire season. Too short, open ended -- terrible way to end a season. 3/10

Damn, now that they're showing new characters, I'm getting excited for more... unfortunately, there isn't :/

Hoping for a sequel, but that's very doubtful to happen.

i hardly remembered the first two episodes, but i was also too lazy to rewatch them. oh well.

5/10 for the whole show. it wasn't really awful, just... nothing special. they should've made a complete tv show with 12 episodes because i think this show had some potential.

Well, that was abysmal in every sense of the word. Generic at best, mind numbingly boring at worst. At the very least, it would have been nice if the "video game parody" concept actually had some relation to the story - but no, you can completely disregard it and absolutely nothing would change.

Nothing here but wasted potential that completely defeats the entire purpose of the series.

It was pretty stupid, but still somewhat enjoyable. I think this would have been more fun as a complete series. Oh well.
5/10.

I want Crystal's babies tho.

Now this is what I want from an anime when I watch it. It was totally enjoyable but somewhat of a disappointing ending; mainly because I wanted more and these 3 episodes just seemed like a prologue more than anything else.

Episode Naxcore: 4.65 out of 5

Complete Anime Naxcore: 8.36 out of 10

So it's over, huh. I thought this was the best of the 3 eps, but overall I can't say I cared much for the series. I'll miss Opal and Tejilof tho.

Its original conception was pretty good, but the execution was poorly done.

So, yeah, it deserves no more than 5.

To be honest, I shouldn't have expected much from a parody anyways, but this was a letdown nonetheless. The ending didn't feel refreshing at all, and they didn't focus on character development much to keep me attached to them, so even if this episode was meant to be a deep one, I didn't end up crying or feeling too much remorse. I will miss Tejilof the most, to be honest, just because his Tetris puns in the previous episodes made me laugh, but overall, the execution of the series was done poorly like other people have stated.

Overall, I'm rating this a 3/10, just because none of the episodes seemed to be a hit for me. There were some characters with interesting character designs, but the animation wasn't anything special, the music didn't capture my attention much, and I didn't feel attached to the story or characters (which to be fair, I suppose that's hard to do in 3 episodes, but considering I get attached to many 1 episode OVAs more than I did with this series, that's what I'm basing it off of). The series had some good voice actors, but some felt a little off from their characters, and I'm kind of picky when it comes to voice acting, so...

Well, if another OVA happens to come out in the future, I'll still give it a watch, but this is definitely going to be a show that doesn't stick with me for too long.

Agreed. That scene with Opal was perfect for a hentai lol.

That was the only thing I enjoyed out of the 3 eps.

loved every second of it, some people say there is no character development but we are 3 episodes in if you look at bleach's ichigo he from the first episode becomes very strong, the other country's and places have just been introduced it will be very interesting to see where this goes from here

This was horrible, to be honest. It was all talking and explaining, trying to be deep and complex. There was maybe one real fight (Opal and Fisher), if you consider that as one.

Probably a 3 or 4 out of 10 as my rating. At least it won't waste any more of my time.

Nah, it's just that they made Opal the object of sexualization and put her in a hentai looking situation. I'm actually glad nothing happened there as I hate it when bad guys rape main girls. Opal is really fucking hot though I agree.

All jests aside, I really felt like this anime could have been longer and more entertaining had that happened. The series really had potential but I guess didn't have enough funding for more than 3 episodes. In my mind, had they really fleshed it out it could have been somewhere around a 7-8/10 range had they executed it well. But since that didn't happen, and I'm left wanting more, it'll have to settle for a 4/10

Way to underrate the anime based on how long it is. It's fucking 3 EP out of at least 50 if it were to be made into a serie. These short specials were most likely to gauge the population's interests. The production team was probably a little hesitant because there's so many anime out there in this genre.

Sure it's a bit generic with all the superpower shounen with plenty of fan services, but the art/animation was great. Each characters have plenty of room to develop; same goes to the plot twist.

I did enjoy it and knew how short it was going to be, so I'm not bothered by that.

7.5/10

If it were more than 3 episodes, I might have given this anime a better score. For that matter, if it had been funnier I might have enjoyed it more, but with this setting and concept for it to go all serious shonen just didn't work at all. It's a parody that tried to turn into a real story, kinda like Uruk, if Uruk had done its Cerebrus turn in the first 3 episodes and that was all there was.

I was pretty disappointed :( If there are OVAs I may give them a try, I do kinda want to see more of the story. Also kinda wish there was a guide for which characters are supposed to represent which games, I didn't recognize King Fisher or the twins at all, and don't really have any idea who Crystal's supposed to be, unless she's Final Fantasy.

5/10

I watched this expecting this kind of ending... I mean 3 episodes only! what would you expect? I actually just want some fanservice you know.. just taking a break from all those shows with very deep plot and shit. But even in that area I was not satisfied... because it's freaking censored! and the perveted jokes are lacking.

anyways 5/10
