The Ramblings of a Damaged Mind
Oh my sweet lord...
So I finally got around to watching Najica Blitz Tactics, I'm on the first disc now. I'd heard that this was a bit over the top - basically an endless sequence of panty shots. I mean, ADV's original deluxe box set had a pair of panties as the bonus pack-in! So I was expecting a rich, cheesy flavor. But, dear lord, this is 100% Velveeta so far. I mean, I'm enjoying it, it is a blast, but it is so over-the-top it is going to hit escape velocity. I like this line from AnimeOnDVD's review: "I got so used to the up-angle camera shots that I began to think I was only sixteen inches tall, but there’s more to Najica Blitz Tactics than up-skirt shots." This seems like an anime made by people with an up-skirt fetish, but the characters and action are actually OK too. So it isn't just for panty fetishists.

I think I'm going to enjoy this, I'm in the mood for cheese. I guess I'd call this cheesecake. ;-) I haven't watched an anime this cheesy in ages, and definitely not one this full of fan service.

Oh, and are all the women in this universe lesbians, or at least bi? Sure seems that way. "Oh, she's so *dreamy*!" Oh yeah, a finely aged cheddar indeed...

You have to rewatch with the English actor commentary -- or kibitzing as it really is.'

And stick with it. While it remains pure, unadulterated Velveeta on top, it does have a solid story underneath.
