Slap Up Party: Arad Senki


Well, this show turned out to be a major disappointment.

       The first episode made it look like this anime would have a plot line and somewhat interesting characters. A woman, Roxy, turns into a demon because of a curse, dies, and her spirit somehow ends up in a sword. Flashforward and a new character, Baron, owns this sword. Although Roxy's small spirit is sometimes seen hovering next to Baron, she doesn't really do anything at all. Baron seems to be on a journey to find a cure for his own curse. Along the way he picks up a few friends he meets randomly, who decide to join him on his journey for no reason. None of them are really original at all (main hero, comedic relief idoit, little girl, tough girl), so the viewer doesn't really get a sense of attachment to them.

        So they begin to travel and nothing happens. There's no real connecting plot between the episodes. Baron's curse is sometimes brought up, but no information is ever gained. They walk into a village, see a problem, help out the town, then leave. Repeat for ten episodes. It got boring very fast after I realized the plot was non-exsistant. At the end they try to finally give it a plot, but it's not good and the lame character dialogue ruins it.

        So basically, although some screenshots look good, and the first episode holds promise, avoid at all costs. Twenty six episodes is far too long for this show, don't waste your time.

Seriously. I tried to watch this, but it was just lackluster.
