Breath of Fresh Air
on May 4, 2004
This is definitely a breath of fresh air from mecha and fantasy, just in case you wanted a break. The truth is, even though this looks like the type of series where three girls prance around with no purpose, I'd be right to correct you. Honestly, there's not much of a plot, but it's interesting because it leaves you with mountains and rivers and valleys of questions.
The style is definitely one of its own, especially when it comes to the art. The music is bouncy and the ideas are original, and all the characters are very likable. Even the main antagonist you meet in episode 5 is awesome!
The first episode is a blow, but really all it's doing is introducing the characters. And then there's the slang, which isn't offensive, but pretty annoying. Once you progress through the series it's either you're used to it, or you've heard so much that you don't notice it. In either case, it's not bad after the first DVD. Speaking of which, there's a lot of swearing, a lot more than I expected for this series, and I suppose that's why it's 15+. The English VA's are fine, but I'm a dub lover, so you'll have to determine that for yourself ^_^; I also listened to the Japanese actors and they do phenominal work. The Aya voice is a lot better, anyway.
If you're looking for something fun and lighthearted without fan service, then here you go.
