Aoi Sekai no Chuushin de (First Impressions)

OK, here’s an anime that’s quite interesting to me. It’s concept is taking the 90’s Console Wars and adding a little twist to it.

Aoi Sekai no Chuushin de is Fifth Avenue’s adaptation of Anastasia Shestakiva and Crimson’s manga. In the land of Consume, the Segua Kingdom is fighting a losing battle against the Ninteldo Empire, what with the rise of Emperor Marcus. Our protagonist, a young man who’s quick on his feet named Gear, requests to join the Segua military, who is planning a counterattack at Hope Fortress to rescue their strongest general, Alex. The second strongest, Opal, disapproves of Gear and challenges him to battle to decide his worth. After being easily defeated, she accepts him. The next day, a genius mercenary named Tejirof trains the two for the coming battle.

Well, decent start. Since I love playing video games, I thought the premise was relevant to my interest. Too bad this show doesn’t have a weekly schedule. From what I’ve heard, the second episode won’t air until after the start of next year.
