It is time for a fight!
Wooooooooooo!! At last the new season of anime is here and you can look forward to the wave of first impression posts and with that I bring you Blade and soul or as I like to call it boobs and soul! I just hope it blows Maken-ki out of the water! Oh and spoilers a lot of side characters die LOL
Kick ass chicks
Aruka does not play well with others.
Why so serious!?
Lately we have seen really strong female lead characters like Ryuuko from Kill la Kill, Ogura from Nobunagun and Kagari from Witch Craft Works! So what do these three have in common? For starters they are not afraid to let loose and go crazy during any fight, but what about the girls of Blade and Soul? Since they are based off a MMORPG which I have not played due to it not being translated into English yet but I do know that the game is focused on fighting so I assumed all of the girls would be bad-asses anyway and they certainly are because whoa! The first five minutes of the episode we see Aruka owning three random girls in a matter of minutes along with some huge dude named Ga Gante afterwards killing off some merchant? So yeah Blade and Soul definitely has the gore and action down; however when it comes to character interaction it really failed to keep my attention especially when we have a mindless robot of a main character! Yeah I get that she is the typical cold blooded assassin who is only motivated by revenge, but so was Ryuuko who was still able to TALK instead of being completely silent and yeah I know she did say a few words but I guess she will open up eventually after meeting the right people while on her quest for revenge. So should you watch this? Sure why not if you like good looking character designs, lots of blood and over the top action I say go for it and I kind of get the feeling that Blade and Soul will not be a hardcore ecchi series like Queens blade because it seems to be more focused on the action moments or can Gonzo blend both together like Kill la Kill? Then again we did get several low shots of Aruka’s butt throughout the episode and those tight outfits worn by Varel Jin and Ran Yu.
DO NOT WANT!
Someone please turn the moonlight down.
To think this guy was proud of this moment…
That explains why the enemy wants your farm!
