Majin Bone




http://www.crunchyroll.com/majin-bone
Based on a digital card game , by Bandai which is adapted into a manga as well.

The story line is the creator of the universe Majin has revived and visitors of darkness has descended on earth , and a new saviour has been chosen..


Animation production by Toei Animation and digital paint and in between animation is by Toei Phillipines.



Japanese cast
Hiroki Yasumoto as Tyrone...( who was Germany in Hetalia)
Hiroyuki Yoshino as Antonio ( who was Bossun in Sket Dan)
Kenn .................. as Shōgo Ryūjin ( who is Hibito is Space Brothers)
Shinnosuke Tachibana as Luke ( who was Chiaki is Sekai Ichi )



Although the seiyuu in not on the credits , I do recognize Akeno Watanabe's voice as the female childhood friend.She was Gou in Free.

My thoughts.
The CG animation on the fight scenes are not easy on the eyes. It made me queasy. The animation quality is not too bad but I noticed the lines are very clear on the outline that they dont blend well with the background.. The art style is based on the game art ( I assume)and its different from the usuall anime , I prefer these character design to YuGiOh's .

Storyline is simple enough , its in the perspective of the lead player of the game. We have seen this formula before , so far the characters are not annoying. and KENN' voice works for the lead character.


p.s. I am not sure if this post is a duplicate...If it is, mods delete this thread

I saw that the first episode was up yesterday but didn't get the chance to watch it.

Might give it a try later on.

I found the first episode to be just OK, nothing more, nothing less. I was ready to skip this, since the description included "card game" and it looked like Power Rangers in the poster art, but so far it just seems to tell the story (albeit one like we have all seen before) without any actual cards involved. If cards do appear and become part of the action, I'll be dropping it.

I thought the character animation somehow odd, kind of out of place, really two-dimensional even for a 2D medium, especially against the CGI action, but I didn't actually find it unpleasant.

So, whether I keep watching or not comes down to whether I continue to like the characters and the humor. So far, so good, I'll keep watching for at least the next episode.

It was pretty meh tbh. The setup feels generic, MC's personality isn't something I'm in favor of, animation is odd, and the action is pretty dull. A lot of explanations still needed to get the set up right, and God that music is atrocious. There's a good chance I'll put it on-hold later.

Not available in the UK, but since it looks a bit power rangerish most likely would not has watched it anyway.

I know i was supposed to hate this anime considering its a animated version of a card game I've never even heard of... but I actually enjoyed it 0.o

The animation was solid, the progression was good. Its def you stereotypical shounen/sentai anime but it did a pretty good job of it imo. I'm def gonna watch the next episode. I expect it to probably get worse as it goes on but as far as first episodes go i thought this was pretty good.

Episode 1

Shougo is hearing a voice coming from a rock in the backyard of his cousin's house, and all hell breaks loose. He transforms into some warrior to fight off an invader, all while being secretly watched by a bunch of boys. Yeah, I was hesitant to try this show out, but since it was the first show out that I might as well. And as I expected, it didn't wow me, so enough of this.

I see where your coming from, it certainly isn't gonna be on any ones best of spring season list for sure, but Idk its been a while since ive watched one of these cliche shounen sentai shows and it basically hit every single check box to be considered on of these shows so I think it was just a bit nostalgic for me. I'm sure it'll get worse as it goes on but I'll keep watching untill the good stuff starts airing.

It's okay. It feels very afterschool-cartoonish, but that's not a bad thing. Though the setup seems a lot worse than the last card anime we had this season.
