- Jun 8, 2004So I tracked down this series based on this recommendation below
(clipped out spoilers) posted some time ago, and I must say - Bravo!
I am glad that I did.
I would add that the show is equal parts hilarious comedy and teary
heartbreak. The mix of the two tones was very well done. I was
hooting and hollering with laughter then sobbing moments later. What
a grand ride.
I also agree with whomever recommended that the first series be
viewed before the second. There is no Yuri potential in the first,
but the show is quite entertaining. Juyi is an amusingly played Hero
and the comedy is good.
Since I did not see this picked up on the last List update. I posted
to the correct email my endorsement of Jiyu and Freasha.
My only criticism is the notable fact that the young girl heros only
have fathers - mothers as an influence are completely absent or only
an influence for dying when the girls were young. This trend caused
the authors to completely eliminate one of the only ADULT woman
characters, Mikage, from the final two conclusion episodes which was
very broken considering her role up till then. Did anyone else notice
Again, thanks to Andy for the recommendation. Excellent show!
