Aoi Sekai no Chuushin de


World War Blue (蒼い世界の中心で, lit. In the Center of the Blue World) is a Japanese fantasy manga series written by Anastasia Shestakova and illustrated by Crimson. The series is a re-imagining of the console wars featuring characters inspired by video games. An anime adaptation by 5th Avenue began airing in Japan on October 20, 2012 to Apr 4, 2013. Segua Kingdom has been losing the war against Ninterdo Empire but the tables are turned by the appearance of a boy called Gear. All the characters are parodies of Nintendo or Sega games such as Sonic the Hedgehog, Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda etc.

Say you’re at a party scouting for a nice girl. You see some nice ones, you see some slightly less nice ones but nobody that really grabs you. And then it happens. This [insert your favorite hair color]-ed vixen appears and draws you in. And after getting to know her better a bit, you’re drawn in even further. So when you wake up after what you hoped would be a great night with her, you instead wake up disappointed and wondering if it was all worth it. Don’t get me wrong, Aoi Sekai certainly has a good concept behind it. I suppose the nicest thing I can say about Aoi Sekai is that it looks actually kind of decent, considering how bad everything else is. But to hop back on the other hand, the action looks disjointed and messy as hell. Characters seem to randomly move between shots at times. What I’ll simply leave as my final words is that Aoi Sekai is probably the most disappointed I’ve ever been in an anime. An interesting idea that had true potential is driven into the ground by characters that make a piece of paper look deep and action that is beyond unsatisfying.
