Yes! To start off the Bad Anime review, I have a Gem of an Anime that is horrible! This would be Crest of the Stars. Now why this even got to TV, bewilders me. It is so dried out, it makes sand look moist. I first saw this on Tech TV, because I was bored and watching TV. So, I saw Crest of the Stars and was like "Hey, An Anime! Let's watch it!" Biggest mistake of my life.
Here's the story: Based on a sci-fi novel series, Crest of the Stars (Seikai no Monsho) is the first installment in this sci-fi saga. The story follows Jinto, a young prince, whose world was taken over by the largest Empire in the Galaxy: The Abh. Jinto's father handed their world over to the Abh in exchange for a standing in the Abh Empire. As a result, Jinto became a prince and was shipped off for an Abh Education. Later he meets a princess of the Abh Empire, Lafiel, whom he quickly befriends despite her cold exterior. The Abh empire is plunged into war and the story continues from there...
Anyways, in the episode I was watching, it was a whole bunch of ship floating through space and not even the biggest speck of anything was going on. They spoke so technical, I couldn't even follow along! It was so boring, I almost fell asleep. Then guess what! Something attacked! OMG! So, they had to rush Jinto and Lafiel off the ship and such. So they do that and blah blah, ship blows up, whoopie! So you'd think it gets better, right? WRONG! They showed a preview for the next episode which was all male fanservice so I was like "screw this!"
Characters: Oh my! They're so... common. Jinto is the typical guy prince, acts tough, talks a lot and whines. Lafiel is the typical silent, tough chick, who's crying on the inside, oh boo hoo!
Story: Floatin' in spaaaaace. Dodging war, who the hell knows, I certainly don't because it's GARBAGE!
Animation: It is nicely drawn, but not well done. The Ships were nicely done as well, but the animation they used did not suit it at all.
Sound: If you like the sound of space and the humming of machines, and the odd explosion or two.
Music: What music!? Oh yes, FLOATING IN SPACE! Greatest Music I've ever heard! Oh, and the sound of machines humming, I love to heard that music all the time! (Sarcasm).
This anime makes me want to burn it up, or beat it with a hammer. It's so dull! Seriously, the only reason it got onto Tech TV is because of the Ships, I swear, that is the only thing! Oh, it could probably be better, if I watched it in Subbed form. But the Dubbed is so horrible, I mean, this anime isn't even Toliet paper worthy!
I want to vomit all over this anime it's so terrible.
