Editorial Reviews

In the early 21st century, the discovery of the first wormhole made faster than light travel possible. However, what promised to be a gateway to the stars also proved to be a Pandora's Box, and the process of jumping through space via parallel universes unleashed terrifying consequences. Now, a quarter millennia later, the deep space outpost Watcher's Nest must stand on guard, defending the vanguard of humanity against attacks by the monstrous Ghoul, who emerge from alternate time streams and turn their victims into the living undead horrors known as Necromancers. For newly arriving cadets Misaki, Luxandra, Susanna and Kiri, it's going to be an assignment in Hell as they train to become members of the elite Seraphim Squadron. Because this is a war mankind has been losing, and a new, top secret plan to take the fight back to the Ghoul may end up costing them their minds, lives and even their humanity. At the edge of known space, fighting an enemy from beyond time, the battle to keep the final frontier from becoming mankind's final resting place has begun in DIVERGENCE EVE!

Before I start my review let me say that I picked up Divergence Eve hoping to add a nice fan-service anime to my library. This was because the series has been hammered due to its extremely well endowed female leads. To be hoenst the only series I know of with women that are even in the same league being Eiken an eihii series. I thought I knew what I was in for when I popped in the first disc. Mainly being a show more concerned about showing panties and cleavage then story line and such. However I was pleasantly surprised. Divergence Eve is actually a really good series.

One last thing before my actual review. Divergence Eve outside of jiggle shots, which there is no opportunity lost for, it only has the normal amount of fan fair. Meaning on two or three shots of a character naked and maybe one or two pantie and braw shots. In fact doesn't take a few chances for fan fair.

And finally my review. Yes I know it took me awhile. firts and most importantly Divergence Eve has an interesting story line that keeps you guessing and wondering what is actually going on. The characters, though mostly beautiful women (no complaints there), are actually rather human and likeable. Voice acting is some of the better I've heard. The music is good and well suited to the series. The animation outside of the mechs is really good, smooth, fluid and realistic.

Now to the bad parts. Well first complaint that comes to mind is that for the first five minutes of the series there is no talking, lips are moving but no ones talking. This leaves you wondering is you got defective disc. Second is that the first episode shown is actually the second to last, which kills a great deal of suspense and serves to severely confuse.

I rented the original release of Volume 1 of Divergence Eve from an online service, and even though the disc was defective (preventing me from watching the second half of Episode 3 and all of Episode 4), what I was able to see entertained and intrigued me enough to want to spring for the "Collection" when it was released.

Unfortunately, this is not the complete collection. Yes, all 14 episodes are here - but nothing else! Instead of simply duplicating the original discs for this release, ADV actually took the trouble of pressing new discs that don't include any of the bonus materials! No clean opening and closing animation, no audio commentary, no mini-manga, nothing but the episodes themselves. Sure, it's more economical to buy this set than the three original individual volumes, but it still boggles my mind that ADV went to the trouble (and expense!) of removing the extras from the "Collection".

As for the story itself: it's "hard" sci-fi (by which I don't mean the science is necessarily accurate, just that there's a lot of it in here, from hyperspatial travel to genetic experimentation), it's a suspenseful, complex plot that contains overtones of psychological drama as well as horror. There's a bit of "Alien" in the design of the Ghoul, and the Watcher's Nest space station looks to be heavily inspired by the titular space station from "Babylon 5". And the notorious bouncing bosoms do get a little distracting sometimes, but not overly so (but maybe I'm just a dirty old man who likes fan service a bit too much...) My main complaint with the series itself is that the CGI is not as well done as it should have been (I've seen better from students still in digital-animation schools), and very poorly integrated with the cel animation.

Overall, I'd recommend this series to anyone who likes sci-fi in the style of "Babylon 5","Battlestar Galactica" (the new series), or "Neon Genesis Evangelion". Just don't expect any extras.

DIVERGENCE EVE
In the 2300's, interstellar travel takes place using "inflation gates". These gates use wormholes to pass through different dimensions. Through these wormholes, an enemy called a "GHOUL" comes into our world. A group of female pilots has arrived at the space station Watcher's Nest to complete their pilot training. Among them is Misaki Kureha, who lost her father in an accident at watchers nest over 10 years ago. She has come there to learn the truth. The general public isn't aware of the GHOULS. So when the new pilots encounter them, they are very surprised. Misaki learns that they are the reason her father died, and that she has a strange connection to them.

This series has good animation, and a pretty well thought out plot. The CG animation for the battle scenes is not bad. I do think that the GHOULS and the thing that Misaki turns into are kinda dumb looking. Their battles are very slow moving and odd looking. The soundtrack is very unique and not bad. There is also a lot of fan service and some nudity. The downfalls of this series are the relatively uninteresting characters, and the failure to background them. The characters have potential, but we never really get to know them, not even our heroine, Misaki. It was hard to get attached to them b/c you never get know anything about who they are as people. There were some moments that were supposed to be dramatic, but they never capitalized. Most of this series was spent with the science officer and a big shot jerk talking vaguely about Misaki's potential powers. It didn't ever develop into anything memorable. I think this series was mediocre in every aspect. It's not bad, but you're probably not going to tell your friends about it, or invite them over to watch it with you. If you can rent it before buying it, I recommend doing that before you buy it.
