Neo-Angelique Abyss #01 — THESE ARE MY BISHIES

April 7th, 2008




Holy sweet mother of Thor, this was actually pretty decent. Above and beyond that, watching this expecting some kind of horrible shoujo drek became a trascendent experience. Aside from starting off with a bunch of bishies fighting tanks, there is so much stuff to talk about that I don’t even know where to start. Let’s hit some of the highlights of the episode.

  • Rayne, the redhead gun using bishie with the faaaabulous highlights, is a Heartless. No argument. His vest is so covered in the Heartless emblems.
  • The next bishie (too busy laughing to pay much attention to names) uses a whip and wears a monocle. A monocle.
  • They fight a tentacle monster which shrivels up girls and looks exactly like a giant Oddish. Or maybe a headless Bulbasaur.
  • This cat that Angelique comes up has the sickest meow sound that you can imagine. I think it has throat cancer… which is okay because…
  • At the end of the episode, the cat explodes, sending light up into the air, creating an aurora borealis and letting all the other bishies know that it’s started.
  • A freakin’ monocle!
  • During the next-episode preview… the background music was a polka.
  • Oh yeah, and they fight more tentacle monsters next week.

I don’t even know what else to say. This show had me in stitches throughout though I’m pretty sure it wasn’t meant to. This was nowhere near what I was expecting at all. It’s obviously full of pretty boys and not too much/any fanservice, but man… pretty boys fighting pokemon tentacle monsters? Who called that one?

I’m in no state to say a single objective thing about this show. I had probably more fun with this episode than I had with anything else just chatting with friends about the craziness that was going on. The episode was just a trip and a half. If anything, you might call it similar to Kyoshiro to Toya no Sora in general premise, albeit without the lesbians (YET!) fanservice (more like manservice… *swoons over Rayne*) and far better production values all around. Man, is all shoujo like this? Have I been missing out? What else haven’t you people been telling me!?

The First 120 Seconds


The party sets out to collect all the bishies and make the ultimate manharem.

    There are romantic endings to the anime on the last disc of the DVD, so you can choose who Ange gets with the end. Hope that helps :)
