It’s not necessarily difficult to follow what happens, rather the plot itself is particularly foolish.
Our immediate introduction to this series begins with a statue monster thing running rampant across our screens – meanwhile, the camera keeps shooting back and forth between that obscure scene and a kid who appears to be suffering from some sort of seizure.
Unidentified purple smoke like substances stream around the kid and his eyes begin to crazily change colors and shapes in response to the demonic statue.
The OP then rudely interrupts that strange scene as it generically concludes, we are met with an entirely new outlook without any statues or crazy kids. Two people appear at a devastated display of debris, one of them a lolita female carrying a talking magical statue head, apparently intended to mark her as a main character.
An instant skip in the series happens again and we are now at a typical Japanese high school – the local badass Tandoji with bleached hair (scary!) is despicably walking to class, making no regard of the fine students talking away and making fun of others as it appears he’s too cool to participate in such easygoing activities. Believe it or not, this badass actually manages to arrogantly arrive to class on time. He also happens to be the seizure suffering kid from before.
Everyone is avoiding him as they seem to be intimidated by his prompt and punctual nature – all save for a single cute girl by the name of Wakana who greets him vibrantly and catches a glimpse of him at a pond after-school collecting rocks. Back at school the next day, our badass is hiding on the roof all alone until Wakana energetically comes forth greeting him again and inviting him into her club.
As our badass is cruising on his scooter back home, a tactical unit of maids rushes out of the bushes and puts up a road blockade just as he passes. That sectioned off area now looks as if under the control of a group of sexy cosplaying girls coming complete with finely outfitted snipers – they entirely surround Tandoji’s home with feminine physique.
The significantly short statue wielding loli character from before arrives in front of his door and begins to extort him for help alongside her kuroshitsuji. They say the badass holds immense “power” something typical of a poorly planned action anime series – what exactly this phenomenal “power” actually is goes unspecified, although we can see for ourselves it does indeed leave a sexy purple aura around its users.
After an inadvertent show of force by Tandoji, those assistance extorting cowards finally flee and leave our badass main character to return to his serene life of solitude.
From our understanding, some sort of organization composed entirely of female anime character stereotypes is trying to combat laser firing statues which are aggressively roaming around the city, firing their lasers randomly at all those in their path for no apparent reason – to stop them, they need Tadonji’s sexy purple aura powers.
The series is one which is undeniably interesting, although coming off as silly – another striking aspect are the visuals which are heavily styled to a form factor unique of the series. One of the things well done within the series is the action implementation which is direct and wastes little time or spectacle – unfortunately however, build-up of that action as well as presentation is not nearly as well done as it essentially comes out of nowhere or simply drops the viewer in.
Development made character-wise is incredible – a lot about Tandoji is revealed over the course of the episode relating to his background and line of thought, even more so due to the intrusive intercession by kuroshitsuji. Wakana is also well developed (physically and story-wise) as much about her character is made obvious through her friendly treatment towards Tandoji – the physical aspect goes without saying.
Overall a definitely respectable and enjoyable series thus far – one which none will regret watching, yet few will want to watch in the first place. It’s nothing revolutionary or trend-setting but it’s straightforward and filled with action.
