With another PV, it would be plain unfair to belittle Code:Breaker visually, as it is looking mildly impressive in animation – although the shounen salad of a story is making the anime feel like a comedy of some sort.
Code:Breaker has yet to even debut a single episode, however, still felt the need to promote its first optical media disk – it’s not alone in doing this, and one can’t care much about the specifics. Yet thankfully, despite the purpose of the clip, the video still seems to have some relatively fresh content over what was seen in earlier PVs – although of course, it’s not a sparkly respite. These scenes don’t necessarily build any hype for anything unless one is truly eager to unleash ridicule.
Watching the video, the logic exhibited throughout is only known to shounen anime series – our first scene initiates, and our main character stands in the middle of a forest whilst burning to thousands of degrees. Where and why this highschooler has taken the additional time of his schedule to spend on needless dramatics is just cryptic – perhaps he was attempting to end his pitiful life, but was unaware that shounen series protagonists are invincible.
Either way, worse than any of that is how after he spends his routine hour of being engulfed in flames, he then moves onto the next activity in his daily life – standing on the edge of a skyscraper and talking himself. At this point, the character seems neither like a typical shounen male lead, nor a highschooler, he simply appears senile and in need of admittance of a sanitarium.
Forgiving that however, the rest of the clip is stuffed with an assortment of action scenes – albeit from characters who one could copy and paste in any given subpar shounen work and have them fit in seamlessly.
At least with certainty, this will be one enthralling series – either proving intensely engaging, or perhaps, immensely amusing for reasons all so wrong.
