Warning Zone: Seiren

seirenThe What:
Our main wimpy guy has no ambition or talent. Irritated that one of his female classmates seems to have more direction than he does, he forces himself to go on an academic retreat with a friend. But the girl who annoys and arouses him ends up there too because anime.

The Why:
This series doesn’t show that much, but it implies a lot. Our main character has rather… graphic imaginings about his classmate. We don’t see breasts or butts, but we hear his dialog ramble. Around episode 3 or 4 the combination of sexual inner dialog and his fantasy of seeing her pee was too much and I cut ties. Technically we don’t see much other than a lump of our lead’s erection, but with the twisted dialog and wondering camera… it’s very obvious that this show is just barely staying from an M rating. But let’s be honest. It requires an M anyway.
That being said, I can see why a few people might like this show. It’s pretty brutal about the typical awakenings of the teen sex drive and it is nice to see a lead actually wish to better himself outside of the female lead. It has a few.. interesting points. But it has far too much perv for me to stick around…


Warning Zone: Ange Vierge

AngeThe What:
Magical girls fly around and are supposed to save the earth and be a team and who cares cause no one watches this title for the damn “story.”

The Why:
Crunchyroll still hasn’t a tag to be seen on this one, thus I just want to give a shout out that this is a soft porn title. No way around it. Remember Freezing years back? Yeah, that lame piece of trash FUNimation was pushing down everyone’s throats 24/7 for months on end? This is essentially just like it. Lots of naked scenes where convenient, strategically placed beams of light just happen to cover details. That said, these naked characters get into very compromising positions and discussions so there’s zero doubt as to what this title is going for.
As mentioned before, these titles are usually pretty obvious to me, but this one just sounded like a bland set up with the usual fanservice amounts. Nope. Soft porn.
And not even good soft porn (if there is such a thing), so this is probably one of the most pointless shows of this past season. You’ve been warned.

Warning Zone: Taboo Tattoo

tabooThe What:
So this kid, with no special attributes besides wanting “to be strong” (woooah soooo original), runs into a homeless guy and gets a power. BAM! He’s gotta fight pretty much everyone, even the people he’ll probably work for eventually. But first they must fight. Because reasons.

The Why:
Besides being a bit lack luster in the set up, this show has an uncomfortable amount of not only fanservice, but outright nudity. As usual, Crunchyroll has no idea how to tag anything and thus here we are.
Of course, that alone doesn’t always garner a WZ, but the violence is REALLY high in this one too. Blood gushing everywhere, screams of intense pain, the crunching of bones. Think Charlotte levels, here.
So, basically, if nudity and/or violence aren’t your thing, stay away. Honestly, it was so bad I had to drop this show after only three episodes. CR really needs to get on top of some kind of content tagging system…. I have my limits too.

…Seriously, I have nothing else to add. This show seemed to have nearly nothing going for it. You could say the fight scenes were well choreographed. Maybe the idea of such a strange world order seems cool (nations and alliances seem different in this one). But other that that, this show just doesn’t have much going on to be worth the nudity and violence.
