As a somewhat sequel to the original animation run, the movie does the standard requirements well. However, it doesn’t do anything in particularly special in return.
Loli magicians. It wouldn’t be Toaru Majutsu without ’em.
It’s been awhile! Instead of getting into the details of why I’ve been gone, let’s get right to it! So to put it simply, Touma and Index meet up with a popular musician who just happens to be this completely moe pink-haired bishy. Turns out she has the ability to make miracles happen with her songs. Magicians and Scientists alike both use “miraculous phenomenon” in the forms of “power from God” and “ESP” respectively. So as you’d already guessed, Arisa has a lot of “fans.” Who “want her autograph.”
Her dream to be popular has come back to bite her.
Analysis on Storytelling Method.
This is a fanservice movie with terrible 3D CG. My god. I just wish they would stop with the attempts to use 3D CG in anime. Tokyo Ravens is plagued by this. Arpeggio is also plagued by this. IT LOOKS TERRIBLE GODDAMMIT.
JUST LOOK AT THIS! IT LOOKS NOTHING LIKE THE 2D VERSION!!!!
Enough ranting, the fanservice is there. No, not the loli magicians or nakkid scenes. That’s been there and to be expected from Toaru. If we wanted to talk about the dress code of magicians, we’d do that in a normal To aru post. There, we’d pretty much rant about how none of the dress that any of the characters where really makes sense other than to look cool and/or slutty.
The girl to the far left really needs more cloth on her chest.
Stylistically, the story ushers in all the characters we’ve met so far one by one. That kind of fanservice for the viewers who all have their different favorite characters. They all make their cute cameo, and we’ll all squeal and buy more of their figurines. Especially, when they release special edition Arisa and Sequenzia as well.
PROTAGONIST WALKING IN ON NAKKID GURLZ?!?! THAT’S NEW!!!
Don’t worry normal fanservice is still there. Yeap. Daefinaetly still there.
Besides the soul-cringing CG, which looked “OK” on the mechs, the movie overall was good. Good pacing. Good story that actually makes sense and sounds reasonable. Everyone is put in as a cameo in a reasonable fashion. And I got to see cute girls in cute costumes doing cute things in cute ways. I guess at the end of the day God is in his heaven and all is well in the world.
YOUR CG IS CRA…. oooooo I’ll take both of the special edition PV models please!
FJ(EFJ)@#FJJKLDJFKWJDLKF HERE IS MY MONEY TAKE IT!!
Sequenzia is my favorite to be honest. o.o
The nightlife backdrops are amazing. Too bad their bloody CG WASN’T!!!! HNGGHHH RAGE!!!!
