What I’ve Learned About Anime So Far

We attended Fan Expo 2011 this past weekend and had a great time. We’ll post about it soon, but for now, here’s something else!

I’ve now watched Witchblade, Darker Than Black, Soul Eater and Claymore, and will eventually review them all. But in the meantime, I’ll post a short list of the patterns that I see forming in the genre.

 

1. There will almost surely be a recent/imminent apocalyptic event.
Witchblade had The Great Quake, Darker Than Black had Hell’s Gate/Heaven’s Gate, Soul Eater had the awakening of the kishin. Hell Girl had something that I don’t want to mention as it’s late in the show and will ruin it for you. Claymore has Yoma and I’m sure they repeated the details of that about sixty-seven times but I nodded off. Anime writers like their mini-apocalypses.

2. There will be a powerful organization and usually, acronyms.
Witchblade: National Scientific Welfare Foundation aka NSWF
Darker Than Black: The Syndicate, Evening Primrose aka EPR, Physical Alteration Natural Deconstruction Organized Research Agency aka PANDORA
Soul Eater: Death Weapon Meister Academy aka DWMA, Arachnophobia
Hell Girl: Hell
Claymore: The Organization (…zzzzzzzzz). Claymore fails at most things, including acronyms

3. If Jamie Marchi voices any of the characters — and chances are, she will — that character will use their outdoor voice constantly.
She was Masane in Witchblade, Liz in Soul Eater, one of the Claymores in Claymore (damned if I could tell them apart) and Brita in Darker Than Black. Brita was the only one who doesn’t scream constantly and I’m going to call that the exception that proves the rule. Jamie also voiced something in Hell Girl, but I’ll have to admit I don’t remember it and people yelled a whole lot in that entire franchise since they were being dragged to hell… so let’s just say yes.
