Warning Zone: ICE

2329The why:
Hulu does not mark this show as M rated, but it should be. The violence and full frontal nudity deserve it. Characters are decapitated, ripped apart and shot to pieces (there’s even a baby that gets murdered) with blood running everywhere. Then there’s the scene where half naked women are shown exhausted on the floor, leaving the strong implication of being used heavily for sex beforehand. There’s really no reason for this show to not be rated M.

Personal thoughts:
Nope. This sucked. So much. It’s short, but not nearly short enough. I kept hoping that things would even out and the story would make sense, but, alas, it never did. Some of the science fiction ideas were interesting, but it’s almost as if a bunch of promising ideas were put in a dehydrator. Except instead of sucking out the water, all the good possibilities were sucked out. From bad voice acting, horrid art and a script that couldn’t make up its mind on the rules of its own world, this OVA series was a mess I never want to see again. And wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy.
Seriously though. How the heck did this pass on a PG14 rating? Wait. This was licensed for DVD release here? This was DUBBED? Who paid for this? And WHY??? See, this is why aliens are gonna kill us all. If the robots don’t first. And we deserve it. We do.

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.
