Najica Blitz Tactics

Jan 18, 2014

Let's be straight here, I'm a guy and I enjoy an occasional ecchi/panty shots anime (though it's not all I watch).  But I cannot reccomend Najica Blitz Tactics.

The show starts a bit slow by introducing the titular character in training (showing what a badass she is) and getting on her first mission.  Fair enough, you have to establish the premise of the show before getting to the heart of the matter...  but over twelve wandering episodes, they never do get to the heart despite showing renewed promise with each one.  The individual episodes pretty much repeat in minature the failures of the series.  They show us a glimpse of the Macguffin, and it's role in the wider world, and then fall back on panty shots, gunplay, and a duex ex machina to get the heroine out of trouble and wrap up the episode.

The characters follow the same arc of spark to thin smoke to ash.  The writers give up glimpses, but never follow up on them and never do more than skim the surface,  I guess that's OK with the heroine and her bosses, but her sidekick *should* be the key to the series... and is given the same treatment.

I watched the show to the end in the hope that they'd do what they kept seeming to be about to do and start gathering the threads together, but I reccomend you skip it entirely.  If you want ecchi/fanservice, watch Girls Bravo which doesn't even pretend to be more than light comedy.  If you want at least a semblance of plot progession to season your fanservice, try Sekirei.
