The lines stand out. They are big. This is a card game anime series targeting children, with a highly evolved card game. It’s hard to understand the battle scenes without knowing the rules of the game, but there is enough movement and action to still enjoy it. This episode felt a little bit slow for being the first episode, but I hope the kids were able to enjoy it still. The one drawback to this anime would be the early broadcast time. The voice cast is very good as well, so there may be some people watching just to hear their acting.

This is the latest Battle Spirits anime, Ultimate Zero! Well, it’s a standard battle anime with a nostalgic manga feel to it. The main voice actor fits well with a cool but slightly younger voice, and the rest of the voice actors fill out the cast nicely. It’s fun to watch as an adult just to hear the voice acting.
The anime has an atmosphere to it that is reminiscent of “Majin Eiyuuden Wataru,” so there are probably plenty of adults that will enjoy this anime. I hope that the kids of today will enjoy this style too!

To 30 year old me, the character designs reminded me of Majin Eiyuuden Wataru. The voice actors are high quality, so those that watch anime for the voice actors should definitely check this out. The main character seems to do a lot of transforming, but I was surprised when that involved his clothes coming off. To have an undressing transformation scene from Sunday morning…

I would imagine that the battle scenes would be very fun if you play the card game as well. The strength of the Ultimate form was really clear to me…

From old to new, I’m watching all kinds of anime. Robot, special powers, love, slice-of-life, I will eat anything! My favorites are “Saint Seiya,” “Penguindrum,” and “Pani Poni dash!”
