Plot Summary: The story begins with Blaze — a weapon that is the manifestation of a human’s soul. Toru Kokonoe happens to be qualified for this, but for some reason his Blaze is not a weapon, but a shield. Moreover, he enrolled in a school that teaches combat skills, and thanks to the school’s Duo partner system, he ends up living with a beautiful silver-haired girl.

First Thoughts: Based on a light novel? Check.

Lead is a guy that has some magic source in him? Check.

Check into a school that teaches this shit and learns to manage it better? Check.

Girls with big boobs with the jiggle effect? Well, no shit, Sherlock.

Living with a girl (or girls) that eventually he’s going to see them naked no really how hard he tries to avoid it and gets called a pervert for something that is completely out of his control?

OK, what I’m saying with this is….it’s the same ‘ol shit I’ve either seen or heard in another anime and while I try to avoid stuff like this, you really can’t. It’s almost in every other anime in every season. Sure, we get these types of shows get some audience one way or another, but it doesn’t mean that their product is always going to turn out good.

Is this show harmful in any way? Well, no. I didn’t expect to find GOLD but at least it’s not completely crap.

OK, I like the opening theme of this. Characters overall are pretty ‘meh’ as hell and the animation is not that attention-grabbing unless you’re focusing on the girls and not the plot…or some shit like that.

Yeah, I rather WAIT TO MARATHON on a block than go with this weekly. I might as well have one cheesy fan service shlock fest and if another one I find turns out to be completely unredeemable, well, this may be the right one.

Until then, I’m MAK2.0 aka the Blue Hybrid, and someone tell this girl to stop staring at me while I’m reviewing.
