Innocent Venus – 01
ED: 「Brand New Reason」 by FLEET
Watch the ED! Mirror 1 Mirror 2
No OP in this first episode. The ED is soft, but rather catchy.
I can’t shake the feeling that I’ve seen the style of the ED sequence before (showing parts of the picture and then the full picture at the end), but I can’t for the life of me remember where. I think it’s a combination of Blood+’s 3rd and 4th EDs with Shana’s 2nd ED with Kannaduki no Miko’s ED. Or maybe I’ve just been experiencing some déjà vu…
Wow, that was really kind of cool. I’m usually not a fan of post-apocalyptical-style shows, but I enjoyed watching this. The opening part with Jo demolishing all those troops and the mecha reminded me almost of Raiden in the Metal Gear Solid 4 trailer. The episode started and ended on high notes with tons of action and carnage. Animation quality was very high, and as some of you have already noticed, Sana and Jin are voiced by Nazuka Kaori and Sakurai Takahiro, respectively, who were Elis and Hiroki from Canvas2. Fortunately (or not), they didn’t sound quite as much like their Canvas2 counterparts (at least to me), unlike a certain other show.
So like I said, I rather enjoyed watching the first episode, but unfortunately I just don’t have room to pick this series up since I’m already committed to blogging both Nana and Inukami for Wednesdays. Maybe if the second episode is really really good, I’ll change my mind…
