What more could you ask for than a bevy of beauties forced to put their lives on the line to answer the call of duty. DIVERGENCE EVE is a bold and imaginative voyage leading directly into the heart of evil. A dark tale enlivened by a shocking mystery, which will have you guessing until the final fade out.
In 2317, mankind can cross interstellar distances through wormholes in space. But at the Watcher's Nest, an hourglass-shaped space station many light-years from Earth, "ghouls," creatures from a parallel universe, try to invade human space. The only protection against them is the elite Seraphim Corps, a unit of overendowed cadets in outfits apparently ordered from a 24th century Victoria's Secret catalog. Masaki Kureha comes to Watcher's Nest wondering if she has the skills to succeed in Seraphim. (As she's built like a highboy with the top drawer open, her future is assured.) The disjuncture between the three-dimensional computer graphics and two-dimensional drawn animation is jarring, and the fragmentary plot makes little sense, but no matter. Divergence Eve
exists to deliver jiggle shots and nude scenes to hormonal adolescent males. Other viewers will rightly dismiss it as jejune piffle. (Rated TV 14: violence, nudity, grotesque imagery, alcohol use) --Charles Solomon
