KONNICHIWA! Emi here!
I watched the first episode of the new anime ‘Bubuki/Buranki’. There are two highlights in this anime that I would like to introduce to you.
Summary of Episode 1
When Azuma Kazuki returns to Japan after 10 years, he is being chased by the Bubuki police by no reason. The person who saved Azuma from the prison was his childhood friend Kogane Asabuki who has a weapon on her right hand known as Bubuki. Azuma Kazuki then learns about the existence of Bubuki and meets Hiiragi Nono, Kinoa Ougi and Shizuru Taneomi, who are also users of Bubuki. Azuma, then learns about himself being a Bubuki user too, goes on a journey to the underground of Shinjuku in attempt to revive Oubu, a Buranki who sleeps in a prison underground.
The quality of the full 3D CG is impressive.
The design of the characters is good. Not to mention, the feel of speed and the actions of Bubuki users are well drawn. The imaginative Bubuki designs are also something to note about in this anime.
※Bubuki is a weapon with its own mind and it is used by Bubuki users.
Numerous mysteries that can’t be explained in only the first episode.
Why is Azuma being chased by the police when he returns to Japan after ten years? It is no doubt that the key to this mystery lies in Azuma’s mother who Azuma has lost contact with ten years ago. Why has Azuma’s mother set Azuma up as the murderer of the incident that happened 10 years ago? What is the truth behind it?
Also, where did Azuma’s twin sister go?
How did ‘Obu’ in the last scene turn into bones 10 years later?
Who are the adult Bubui users that turn against them?
I still can’t understand this anime’s world setting fully!
Numerous amount of mysteries were left unsolved in the first episode. How will the story develop in the next episode? I am really looking forward to it.
