Greetings, fellow anime viewers. Making his not at all anticipated return to reviews after nearly 2 years, it's RandomRedneck. Today, your over-opinionated mouth from the South covers a show a little thin on the story, but thick and bulging with complete awesomeness...that came out wrong. Anyway, this is Bubuki/Buranki. Let us begin, shall we? STORY As the 5 and my previous comment indicate, story isn't where this show shines. Between some plot about Treasure Island, revenge plots, halting aging and other stuff, it's just kinda there. Nothing amazing, but nothing terrible either. ART Ooh, baby. Redneck likes him some art from this show. Everything is painted in bright, gaudy colors. Some of the weapons look like they fell in a paint mixer, and got permanently stained. Which just makes the kick-ass action scenes, which are many and glorious, even funner to watch. Did I mention this show has giant robot fights? Cause those are awesome too. Like Power Rangers on crack or something. SOUND OP and ED are good...what? That's my general consensus on sound. Moving on... CHARACTERS A VERY strong point for this show. Both good and bad guys have over the top, memorable rosters. Even Hiiragi, who starts out as Mr. Contrarian Edgelord, becomes fun as the show goes on. The late coming American character Epizo, and Shizuru being the standouts in my opinion. Seriously, Shizuru is awesome. OVERALL Awesome. Straight awesome. You will not regret these 12 episodes of cheesy, robot using fun. That is all. Thank you. Yours truly,RandomRedneck.


I was bored enough to start watching this one.  It may not be the worst but I’m not very impressed.  It’s basics look promising but not so much the execution.  It looks pretty good however it also looks wrong.  The very reason I hesitated to even try this anime was the poster.  Azuma looks horribly disproportionate.  His head looks to small for his body and in the outfit he wears he looks like a 6-7 year old elementary school student, but when I watched some of the show I was surprised to see he was high school aged around 16.  Even in the show his body looks off and oddly shaped for his age.  Partly it’s his weird cross dressing stockings that don’t match either his outfit well or his character.  The “pilots” sit on the machine and often on specific body parts, but it just looks so weird.  He has a so called childhood friend but she is just randomly thrown at us with no proper story introduction.  His sister and father mysteriously vanish from the story for no reason or explanation.  Much of the setting makes no sense and so far nothing is fixing that oversight.  It maybe kind of fun to watch but as a story it doesn’t make much sense. There are a few feel good type moments but the screwball delusional view of the world throws it off.  By that I mean, the moments where like so many other recent anime try to make evil villains look or moral but those of us with working brains know even if they had morals or good reasons to head down dark paths, that it doesn’t justify their actions or in some cases just not all their actions.  Rarely would I even care their reasons once they cross lines that can’t uncrossed with a slap on the hand.  His sister and dad appear eventually in a manner of speaking but sadly the foundation or explanation is noticeably lacking.  I kind of feel like I’d get a more complete story simply watching random strangers exit a grocery store.  Incidentally, that’s not a good sign.  You can still get some enjoyment out of watching it once just don’t expect a story or a deep understanding of everything beyond the level of a toddler’s coloring book.
