Hysterical action series
Posted by: Dval from: Clarksville, TN on
Have to say that I greatly enjoyed this series. As is common with Sentai...the price is pretty high. Being published by Sentai, I wasn't expecting anything extra out of it, but there's actually a decent amount of extras."The Secret of Saint Lily Academy" is a strangely humorous, if not extremely adult, OVA made up of 13 small episodes. A few trailers, some cool character and design sketches, and the usual textless songs.
From the back of the box: "The year is 2130 and the world has been decimated by a devastating third world war, making the planet a dangerous, apocalyptic hellhole. There is, however, one hope --Adam Blade, a fake priest with big fists and a nasty disposition. Still, he's the closest thing this world's got to a superhero. But like any superhero, he has a weakness. Though in Adam's case, it isn't Kryptonite: it's cuties in sexy little outfits, usually of the schoolgirl variety. Big bloody battles and a liberal dose of fan-service have made Needless one of the craziest, most action-packed anime series in years.
"The story starts out with Cruz, small green-haired boy, and his sister running away after a failed assassination attempt on main bad dude, Adam Arklight. Cruz's sister seems to sacrifice herself so that he can escape. Still being chased, he is saved by a priest named Adam Blade. Afterwards, they join up with the blue-haired Eve and the balding scientist, Gido. Eve and Adam are both *Needless*, or people who carry a special fragment that allow them the use of a unique power. Things get crazy as they become targets of Arklight's Needless-hunting.
Needless is full of action, comedy, and perviness. Should be able to figure that it's a little deranged by the cover of the box. Busty girl in a bathing suit sucking on a popsickle, a loli in a sundress, sinister-looking dude crawling on the ground, and two guys fishing in a boat with sharks circling them. A few too many moments of creamy or liquid substances being splashed onto the girls faces...inuendo much? Eve manages to curb-stomp Cruz every chance she gets...poor kid. And at least someone gets the KO *Judgment Execution* in every episode after some good fierce battles.The story manages to run its length within just a few days/weeks which is very surprising in anime.
The drawbacks: Cruz's continual whining. He feels just as bad as Shinji Ikari from NGE. Not to mention that every single character needs a recap or explanation for every move and fight. It almost felt like Dragon Ball Z at times with the amount of filler during fights. They always manage to put some good humor into that filler, though.
Overall, you should buy it or watch it at the least if you enjoy anime. 24 episodes long with some decent extras on 3 discs. The Blu-ray looked awesome, too. Don't think I can ever go back to DVD versions if there's a Blu-ray available.
