Story
Humans acquired a perfect source of energy called "Patia", which brought self-sufficiency in food and fuel to all the people in the world. Trade and transportation began to diminish and finally the advance of the civilization terminated. Now the genetically modified plants cover almost all of the lands on earth and obstruct travelers.
Cient, the leader of a fortress city, sets out on a trip to excavate the lost technology "Patia" with his daughter Ruri. When Ruri gets separated from her father, a giant humanoid weapon of the old age attacks her. Ruri is saved by a girl named Tekuni who is traveling around the world training as a "Wazabito" fighter.

What do you expect, a pixar animation? Matsueda do all the work alone with a 3d program tool, is a doujinshi fan made work like Maikaze do with Touhou some times ago, nothing more nothing less.
I appreciate experiments and amateur works, is something different from the standard high budget animation. :)

So this was the important announcement in the latest chapter.
And I was expecting a second season of Kenichi ):


The new series of Keniichi was also announced.

Personally, it's not the fanservice that puts me off (it seems to be present but not getting in the way of the story, which is fine, rather than being constantly referenced, pointed out, and run into the ground, which annoys me), it's the character art. The backgrounds look GORGEOUS. But the moment I saw the characters, and saw them move... some people have said it looks like an MMO. I'd agree; I had to double-check that it was actually an anime. So I'll probably not watch this.

because, for one I don't want to see little girls in their panties or flashing for that matter. i don't like lolis, I don't like people who like lolis, I don't like loli fanservice in everything now. And this show has 2 things I truly dislike, fanservice that is uneeded, and loli fanservice. Did we really need to see that little girls panties constantly? What was she like 4? And I'' bet you people are gunna defend it.

I don't like girls with boobs the size of their heads either. I don't need to see her panties everytime she appears on screen.

Funny thing, I hadn't even noticed the panty shots from the little girl untill you mentioned them. And I'm a complete lolicon.

Maybe you'd enjoy things a bit more if you weren't always looking for things to complain.


I don't get it. Do these people read their own posts? Unneeded fanservice? What kind of fanservice IS needed? None, fan service is SERVICE for the fans. If it's meant to appeal to you, you enjoy it, if it's not, you ignore it.

It's like complaining that recently, all anime seems to be about people with TWO eyes. Why do they need eyes? And they all have two of them! They almost never blink anyway. Damn unneeded eyes...

It looked really nice at first....And then the fanservice and CGI happened.
What the hell?

This is the weirdest looking porn I've seen all day.

At first I was like 'Stunning scenery, just look at that animation!'
And then there was boob!service
and bad CGI.

Never going near this.

Why would a panty shot not make you watch something? Do you think girls are icky or something?

I will never understand the complaint about fanservice unless the one complaining is either a girl or gay.

I might have to watch it...

This seems like one of the last works Kawakami ever worked on ;_;

Anyway, doesn't look interesting to me..

Mm, not really interested. But can someone tell me what's an "original anime"? Is it when there's no manga/light novel and so?


Hoppy said:
Pretty much although it doesn't stop a manga/LN adaptation to be made once the series is finished. Dog Days has an LN adaptation and the anime was original.


AYS!!! Dog Days has a Light Novel??? i never knew i actually thought the anime was an adaptation of the manga (if there is one) or just as you said an Original Anime?

Pantyshots of lolis, a loli with big tits, tits that were almost constantly jiggling...

Wut?

At least the CG animation looked nice.

Sep 14, 2011 12:11 PM by ChronosXIII

Does your mom hit you or something when there's a pantyshot in anime? It's not like the fact itself makes it bad, it's pretty meaningless by itself, thus judging it solely by that seems pretty stupid to me, but it's not like I care what you watch anyway.


I read the synopsis and thought "Could be interesting", started watching the video and thought "Hey, it looks very nice" and then characters were done with CG ;_; Anyway it's somehow weird but it might actually be kinda fun, or even good. Plus it has Rie, WITH TITS.

Pantyshots? No, thanks.
Next, please.


^ Dat.

Looks like just another "girl warrior as an excuse for her to lose her clothes" type of thing.


I doubt it, you guys are judging an anime based on only 2-3 pantyshots, disappointing.


Says the guy who mentioned the exact same fanservice as a plus (meaning you too "judged it on a few panty shots"). I'm sorry you find my difference in opinion a disappointment except not really. Enjoy it doubly for me I guess.
