This is probably one of my faovrite animes, and it's about time they brought it to the USA.
Well now the important notes. This series DVDs as with most anime series DVDs are being released every other month. The doll that comes with the set has her feminine features far to over accentuated. I think mile long legs are great, but 2-3 mile long legs. Just get the regular DVD and save yourself a 10 spot.
Once again this series great strength is in the love between Pacifica, Shannon, and Raquel which allows them to stand against an entire world! While Pacifica wonders whether she would be better off dead, her brother and sister are always there to help her. It seems like most of the people that try to kill them are won over by their kindness and dedication to each other. Hopefully, the prophecies are wrong.
The extras are pitiful with the only one being a textless ending. To me, the picture quality is not as good as it could be, especially when there are dark backgrounds. The Japanese voice acting is superb.
This series is pretty good. It has a good mix of action, comedy and drama. There are some really good characters that are developed well. This series stays focused on the main plot and doesn't diverge like a lot of the fantasy animes out there. It has good animation, voice acting, and a decent soundtrack. I really enjoyed it, but there are tons of better shows out there. I'll give it 4 stars, because even though I enjoyed it, it didn't blow me away.
In volume II, the main characters encounter a musician who uses deadly bugs that try to kill Pacifica, the Scrapped Princess. Afterwards Shannon, Pacifica's older brother, proclaims his desire to protect Pacifica from any harm:
"You're right, I swore I would protect her. I promised that I would protect her from anything that tried to take her away from us.
I want power. The power to save her. Enough power to change destiny. Power to fight, even if it makes the whole world and God himself my enemy."
The delimma between protecting an innocent girl or saving the world continues in this volume.
The English voice cast is wonderful. Sometimes they performed better than the Japanese voice cast. The animation and action is a lot better than the first volume. This anime series just keeps getting better and better!!
Bandai did a wonderful job recreating the world of Scrapped Princess for the US audience.
