I was second guessing myself from the first time I found this product. The reviews were split. The characters weren't from Juvenile Orion. Even so, it was set in that universe and I gave it a go. Last night we tried watching the first disc and I actively began stating, "Oh, this was a mistake..." while the other person said, "Well, give it a chance."
I gave it a chance. Four episodes worth. By then there was a universal, "Oh, this was a bad mistake," echoing through the house. Four episodes of a 13 episode series and they haven't even began to get to the basic plot of the Aquarian Age universe, which I had been miserably trying to explain for the last two episodes. Oh, there was a time or two where you'd get a random glimpse with no real ties or depth, but they never really seemed to latch onto the main characters, who were trying to be a rock band and somewhat succeeding. According to the description of this Anime, the protagonist is supposed to be agonizing over his responsibilities and powers vs. his music.
Again, four episodes in and his career is doing fairly well, and nobody seems to really want to point out his alleged abilities (I say alleged because, really, other than being a really good harmonica player, you aren't seeing anything of a supernatural nature).
So, there's $40 down the drain. I don't even have anybody who I would give this to in my group of anime watching friends - they would lynch me. I'm afraid it's going straight into the trash bin unless I meet a feeble minded anime fan in the next day or two.
