Mochizuki General Hospital boasts some of the most well-trained (and well-endowed) nurses in town. But though these ladies spend much of their day battling sickness, their after-hours are spent fighting a very different sort of disease…Under the leadership of the hospital chairman, a handful of staff members and local teenagers form a group of mercenary assassins, targeting the “cancers” of society and excising those individuals before their wickedness spreads.
Story This anime is about a group of people, where all of them "died" which propably means they were really close to death but got revived, that is working as a team of asassins. They are after the big shots of organized crime, those people that get away with everything, because they have influantial friends or other stuff like that. Their organization, Black Label, kills those people, telling them they are like a tumor to society. After this is made clear, Black Label has to oppose a group, which is later called Syringe, which tries to get a new drug into Japan, which seems to make the user more aggressiv amon other things. You never learn what happened to that drug or to Syringe, since the series just stops in between this storyline. I didn't even fully understand the difference between D99 and Platinum Lily, if there is any. Those are both names of drugs, but I think D99 could be the antidote to Platinum Lily. The Plot as is is totally unstructured, or I just don't understand it as it was meant. Sometimes we see the main character, Arashi MIKAMI, with his friend from school, but only three times I think. Otherwise she is totally irrelevant to the plot. Then we have another thing where two idols are going with Oriha NASHIDA, who is an idol herself, to rescue other idols. That is the only time those two side-characters are around. We always get the teaser for some interesting character-development, but then again it is destroyed or left behind. There were many good built fighting scenes, though, but I think they took much too much time from a ten episode long series for that fighting stuff to really get things done on the other parts. There are so many loose ends in there because they tried to tell me several plots, while the time besides the fighting wasn't even enough for one plot. Animation My favorite part of this series. And no, my high rating for animation is not because there are many busty women around and you get really many panty-shots and nude women (at least I assume, since I was watching the censored version). No, I think there were many good fighting scenes in there. They were thought through, they were drawn good, you didn't see too much obvious rendering, it was just well done in that aspect. Sadly I for myself think a decent animation isn't nearly enough to get over a lousy story. Sound The sound was okay. I don't remember anything spectacularly good or bad. The few songs that were strewn in were okay, too, but there was not enough music in it for my taste. Characters Now the hard part. The characters were awful! I can't remember any character development. Anything important seems to have happened before the series started and in fact I didn't care enough about any character to being eager to know why he or she ended there. Not only was there no development of the characters at all, I had the feeling it was intentional. Every time when there happened something, that could have given any development, it stopped to be important when it was done, save for the kissing between two of the characters almost at the end of the series. There were so many chances to evolve the characters, which were written in by the same people that rejected them afterwards. It was a feeling of "let me have my cake and eat it, too". They wanted to hint development of the characters and then they didn't get it through. Save for Sayo Hitsugi that is, she had at least a little development at the end of the series, she got rid of her mask. But even there was so much potential in there, you propably could have filled those ten episodes alone with her backstory. Which brings the most annoying part of this whole thing. It felt too big. If you look on the character page, at the moment it has eleven main or secondary characters, and every one of them, plus at least three of the side characters seem to have their own backstory that has to be told. But there is no place in this series. I assume, without looking it up, that there is a manga or a novel somewhere, where this originated from. Then I would understand what happened there, not that that would make it any better. Overal The storytellers just wanted to tell too much of a story in too few episodes, propably using not enough money to do so, too. That lead to a story I don't really get, that is open in every way possible, I don't think there is even one closed storyline here. I had to fight to get through, too, asking myself what this whole thing was about at all. It wasn't entertaining, closer to frustrating. For me, really bad show!
Моим первым впечатлением было что то вроде ..блин, почему пол экрана занимают буфера, а не персонажи... Да, буфера слишком большие и это очень раздражало... Однако оказалось что это не все, на чем держится это аниме.Сюжет довольно интересный, идея не плоха, хотя можно было бы развить по больше, как то быстро разобрались со всем...Рисовка в общем то не так уж и плоха, но буфераааа... ну вот 1й раз когда это не понравилось...Персонажи, в особенности ГГ, хороши. ГГ вообще крутой, мне понравились... Хотя 50проц всех баб, которые окружали ГГ ничего из себя не представляли, играли роль фона что ли... В общем, впечатление так себе, но смотрибельно, вполне можно скоротать денек с этим аниме, хотя ночего там особо и нету... Я б сказал не интересно, а нескучно... Не всем понравится (думаю большей части не понравится)
Do you like bondage? Do you enjoy the feeling of (senseless) righteous anger? Do you like teenage angst? Then this show might be for you. Due to it's ecchi nature, if you don't like nudity, then you should probably steer clear of this one. The premise is fairly simple: there are an evil few in society that get labeled Black (the worst rank) by one Triage organization (the main characters) who then assassinate said evil. When I read this summary, I admit I was a little intrigued because it provided opportunity for a story to delve into some mature themes like the morality of killing. The first episode did enough to entice me, but to say I was disappointed later is understating things. The two most important parts of any story (in my opinion- plot and character development) were severely lacking. If you want something similar that does things (moderately) better, I recommend Tokyo Ghoul, Code Geass or Boondock Saints. Spoilers ahead, matey! The characters were dead pan. The main male lead who the introductory song clearly painted as the one to follow had about as much screen time as Arwen in the Lord of the Rings franchise. Even in the rare moments, we never saw more than an empty shell of a human. But Gen, obviously, we need our main male character bland in these ecchi harem shows so we can insert ourselves! Oh, but this is simply poor narrative and I hate it. Especially when he has a tragic back story and mentions he struggles with emotions in the first episode, it is hard for us to insert to begin with because his experiences are so foreign. Oh, and his emotions aren't talked about much after the pilot, and his past tragedy is referenced rather than developed. It was like the viewer had to be told the main character was someone we should care about rather than be convinced. Ironically, though I've said I was disappointed by the shortage of main character screen time, I was also initially relieved (for the first few episodes) to see less attention cast on the typically bland harem lead, but instead to the usually more interesting female characters. Except their characters were somehow even worse. There was some pop star chick, and that was about all we learned about her character; oh, yeah, she had a friend die in an episode- she got over that pretty quick. The main girl- who for some reason had no qualms with being in a neighboring shower stall with the main dude- was in the show only to swoon for the main guy and sometimes kick evil butt. There was the later introduced female with rage issues that killed her parents and was in the story only so the main character could play the white knight. Then, there were a handful of other female characters who didn't get much screen time, and aren't even worth mentioning. Then there's the leader of the Triage organization. His voice was monotone and mouth covered half the time; he didn't give much, so there's not much to give on him. That brings us to the plot whose climax was probably the Triage leader revealing that he was responsible for a certain drug's existence that he used on all the main characters to save them from near death and also enabling them to have super human strength while also being a very lethal danger to humanity... ? I think I can even summarize the plot in a sentence: the main characters execute several missions, someone eventually knows their organization's identity (oh, no), this someone is linked to said serious drug, Triage leader gives his grand reveal, main character white knights rage girl, main character rescues random reporter from a crime boss, and then main character decides to walk back to HQ after a random mission that is irrelevant to the plot. It is arguably the worst ending to a show I've seen in quite some time. Maybe the author was trying to have a stereotypical western ending where the hero rides into the sunset except the animation didn't do that much justice? On the topic of animation and sound, I'm not too picky when it comes to anime. My rule is as long as it doesn't hurt me to watch, I'll give it about a nine, ten if I notice it's high quality, less if I actually notice flaws, and lower still if it makes it harder for me to finish the show. (Like I've said before, the main qualities I'm looking for are the characters and story.) Sadly, there were some moments of broken animation that I did catch. For sound quality, there was nothing bad, but also nothing stellar either. I did, however, like the opening theme song quite a bit, and have added it to my library of music because I have one of those. I recommend giving it a listen. Overall, I give this show a 6/10. I'm probably being way more forgiving then I should be. If it were based on story and characters alone, it would be a 4.5/10. I'd say to most viewers, you could skip this show and not miss much.
