Shakugan no Shana II
You’re Under Arrest: Full Throttle
Okay, wow that was f-cking lol. No seriously. While Miyuki did save the kid and all, but the collateral damage is pretty unbelievable. No seriously, taking out a few patrol cars, a military motorbike and someone else’s car, not to mention jumping in to the back of a van traveling at >100km/h will seriously need you to suspend your belief. A lot. Well, like tj_han says, you’ll need to believe that “traffic cops are SWAT, Naval Diving Unit, Special Ops, SEAL, Ninja, Naruto, Bankai, Mecha, Gatekeepers and Sector 9 all rolled into one compact pretty unit stationed in a friendly neighbourhood police station.”
Otherwise, I guess it’s good to see You’re Under Arrest back, and like tj_han, I believe my first true anime series was this show, when it was being shown on AXN at that time. South East Asian people will definitely get what I mean. Well, to be honest, I seriously didn’t believe that they would revive this series after the absolutely dismal second season, which was so bad, my mind has already rejected any memories of the show. Well, them producers opening the third season with such a display of suspension-of-disbelief isn’t really going to help bring in new fans, but I guess they’re going straight to the jugular for the old fans of the series, a considerable amount over here, lol.
Also, I must add, the ED, 1/2 sung by Chiaki Ishikawa is both truly unexpected and so misleadingly… well, yuri, with all the depictions of Natsumi and Miyuki. Well, to be honest, it would’ve been great if they found a way to write off Nakajima (Tokairin can stay, he’s awesome) and made those two get together, but chances of that happening are like the chances of Natsumi waking up on time for work.
Not expected, but it’s welcomed if they’re going down that way
Well, I hope they keep the over-the-top actions down to a minimum for the rest of the series, except maybe during some climax parts. More importantly, I hope it doesn’t turn out like the Second Season did.
