Anime Discovery – TIME OF THE SEASON Winter 2015 Edition: The ROLLING Girls

So it is the cute girls with motorcycles show from Studio WIT? Or it is like The Warriors but with high school girls?

Actually, I got no idea what the hell this could be about…..as of yet.

And yes, I’m going to keep saying that this is from the studio that made ATTACK ON TITAN! Funimation did it. What makes any difference if I did it?

Plot Summary: 10 years after the Great Tokyo War, each prefectures in Japan had split up into independent nations. Each nations are ruled by a prophet called “Mosa” and an army called “Mob” as they start to compete to take over other countries. Four “Mob” girls from the Saitama clan, Nozomi, Yukina, Ai, Chiaya are ordered by their “Mosa” to travel around Japan riding their motor cycles to mediate multiple battles between nations and clans as they emerge.

First thoughts: OK, So it’s like The Warriors….for a bit. Maybe. To be honest, the first episode was about 50/50 as some moments got interesting to check out while the rest you’re probably forget or lose attention to although I get it was an introductory episode to what we are getting into. There were a few entertaining moments from the whole Maccha Green scenario to the first fight sequence that came straight out of a Super Sentai show. As for people saying that Wit is emulating moments from Kill La Kill……yeah, I really don’t see it as much but the show definitely has a lot Gainax/Trigger influence in there. Probably the wildest animation I’ve seen in a Studio WIT production…and that’s intentionally wild and also fun, too.

Maybe the writing is a bit half-done but its overall presence is delightfully entertaining. I can see some potential for being a fun show and that’s it. As long as it can do that, then I’m pleased.

CONTINUE WEEKLY. That’s all I got to say at this point.

 

And until then, this is MAK2.0 aka The Blue Hybrid, living in a world full of crazy fighting girls with motorcycles.
