Follow up for : Toward the terra…

Like i said a few days back, I’ll do a follow up to this anime to compensate for my lack of “wording”. If you missed it, you can view it here. Anyway, this are the voices of the blogosphere ;

Well to keep things unbias , of course i will include negative reports as well , happen to find them in Anime-planet. This review is by, therik who gave only 4/10.

Toward the Terra is a generic sci-fi with numerous failings and an inability to tell a simple story without waving its arms around to distract the viewer with pointless tangents. It has mastered the art of overkill, both in terms of moralising and in terms of generating tragedy, something it does with both the force and subtlety of a Megiddo cannon. With its lack of innovation, failure to develop characters and complete ineptitude when it comes to maintaining a straightforward and coherent plot, Toward the Terra lends itself to a simple, one-word description: forgettable.

Looks like you really can please everyone in this world. 😛 , just kidding. End of the day, whether or not the anime is good, it boils down to the watcher. If is good, is good. Doesn’t matter what the world has to say. Unless of course the show is universally bad, generally every show should have its own band of supporters. But of course, i like this show , thats why I’m rooting so much for it!.

And it looks like VivisQueen thinks so too,

Toward the Terra is simply about elegant, exciting storytelling – even the few forgettable episodes at the beginning, in retrospect, serve the important purpose of effectively setting the scene. Still, it is during the middle section that Toward the Terra begins to set itself apart as an epic journey full of emotional twists and turns. Most importantly, the conclusions found here are of the kind which I find myself mulling over long after the series has finished.

See with so many thumbs up, what are you waiting for?

Toward the terra , 地球へ…

So i was watched the last episode of toward the terra (地球へ…) on Animax yesterday. It is hard to believe that such a good show didn’t really get popular among the blogosphere. Maybe Spring 2007 had a lot of strong titles, including one of my all time favorite, Gurren Lagann. Thats why this show was overshadowed.

What i like about this anime was the strong sci-fi elements present in it. They have ships, they have 2 different human race(or so they say) killing each other, they have epic machine overlord(skynet clone!) and the need to return to earth/terra.

Oh the last episode looks like a BL show if you only happen to watch that part only. Namely this scene only. Not the image above.. Below..

Well anyway, that aside, What is the peace ? What is it to be a human? Do we really need a machine to prevent us from killing ourselves? Is there really a perfect system?.. Is freedom always worth the fight ? Why are we still killing each other ?

One thing is sure, there’s always hope. There last item in the Pandora’s box is… Hope.






I don’t like to comment on the quality of animation unless it is really really bad. Other than that, anime that are produce after 2000 should generally be “good”. Well as you can see the style use is pretty much the same as everyone else. So nothing much to talk about. Quality isn’t my main concern if the story is good. Which in this case, it is.

This mark as my first anime review , although i technically didn’t review the whole series. I guess i’ll just do something like this in the future. Of course i’ll do a follow up with links to “proper” reviews later in the week. That way, this can compensate my lack of “wording”. If you’re looking for analyzing of this anime, i doubt i have the attention span to do so. From the way i see it, looks like i’ll be doing more “vintage” shows than current season due to the amazing long list of backlogs and of course the lack of posting anime reviews since the start of my “aniblogging” career.

All in all, this is sci-fi, the story is good. I like sci-fi and i like the story of this show. If you haven’t watch, why not give this a go ?
