Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon aka
Horizon on the Middle of Nowhere
I'm surprised there isn't a dedicated topic for this.
I know due to licensing that the official subs won't be available until tuesday but seeing as I've already watched it I'll my impressions on it. Its an After the End
anime set in the far future. So yeah, the "after the end" part doesn't really matter considering they're living on a Macross
sized ship flying over ancient modern day cities long overgrown with vegetation.
Also, there's a huge abundance of boobs.
Anyways, our heroes: what seems to be two classes worth of characters, although I read they all belong to one class. Winged Humanoids
, robots, an Incubus, a Poring
, a cyborg ninja....well, here's a picture.◊
Anyway, they have live-fire exercise and proceed to display all the advances in combat technology.
Lots of jellies were bounced in this episode. Somehow, this made me feel really happy.
There's a huge gulf between architectures as well. On one hand you have the ship, a high tech engineering marvel as it sails through the sky, its engines making "waves" of energy as it moves. On the other hand you have most of the people living contently on the ship inside their wooden houses straight out of Samurai X
Anyway, obviously I couldn't understand it all. What I could
understand is, one of their childhood friends, "Horizon", is dead. Make of that as you will.
EDIT: Thanks for the info. I checked and you're right.
