Problem Children are Coming from Another World, aren’t they? Review

Story:
Three “special” children are pulled from their different worlds by an odd invitation. All three seek a different life than the ones they already have. Can the new fantasy world they find themselves in, with its many games and dangers, prove interesting enough? Or will their powers only be used by other forces?

Violence:
This show isn’t really a beat em up show, even so, the fight scenes that are there do contain a bit of blood. Some characters gets cut up and another is stabbed. It doesn’t happen too often, only two or three fights get that intense, but it’s there.

Language:
You won’t find the f-bomb, but the normal YA stuff make an appearance, ranging from d-mns to the “illegitimate son” word. As is usual, it’s not every episode, but, like the violence, it is there.

Nudity:
Annnd some awkwardness here. So aside from the usual big busted ladies thing most shows have now a days, including short skirts and such, this show almost got booted to the Warning Zone from just talk. Yep, talk. On more than one occasion, perverted characters let out some pretty extreme innuendo. Some of the worst I’ve heard, actually. It’s only talk, but it still came painfully close to crossing the line. And if this kind of thing bugs you, defiantly skip this show.

Theology/Mythology:
There are all kinds of creatures in the world these kids drop into, anything from mythological creatures to vampires and werewolves. Some that even claim to be gods. One storyline also addresses ghosts and such.  Nothing really gets into religions though, so you can rest easy enough there.

Personal Impression:
This show was fun enough for a ride. The animation is decent and the characters are entertaining, although calling them unique would defiantly be an overstatement. Expect what you see because that’s pretty  much what you’ll get. The music is mediocre, but then so is the plot which takes forever to get going. Assuming it ever really did. It’s hard to be sure when the show cuts itself off at only ten episodes, answers pretty much nothing and accomplishes what only a charitable person would call a sub-plot.
Even so, it’s entertaining enough. Things do move quickly. The destination of the events is a black hole, but its movement. Some shows don’t even have that these days. And some of the wit and humor is pretty spot on. Just be prepared for no answers, way more innuendo than anyone could ever want or need and wondering just how long an anime title can be before someone puts their foot down.

About inrosegalaxy

Raised on everything from Moby Dick to the Star Wars X-Wing books from a young age, it came as no surprise to anyone who knew me that I’d become a literature graduate and avid writer. But my love of a good story wasn’t restricted to the written word in my early years. Star Trek, Mystery Science Theater 3000, and badly dubbed Godzilla flicks helped shape my love of science fiction on screen as well. I wrote my first story while in the second grade. It was a horrifying tale about murdering a fairy-eating dog via a slice of pizza (in my defense, my only exposure to pizza was in the cafeteria and I swear you could legitimately kill someone with those things). I was a special snowflake. Today I write science fiction, fairy tales, Gothic epistolaries, fantasy and anything else that pops into my bizarre and twisted mind. I write new articles for my blog every Tuesday and Thursday. And if you happen to fancy Japanese animation, I also run an anime review blog, RRAR, which updates every Monday.
