Storyline

Tokyo has been sunk into the ocean, along with most of the world, during a large-scale land subsidence! Aika Sumeragi is a salvager who works for a small company run by a father and daughter tandem. Alas, the company isn't exactly successful, and money is needed desperately. Thus, Aika accepts the very dangerous job of acquiring an artifact called Lagu for a hefty sum. The boss's daughter Aida Rion joins Aika on this particular mission, and the two set off. Written by Anthony Pereyra {hypersonic91@yahoo.com}

Fun trash
29 April 2005 | by (Croatia, Europe) – See all my reviews

Sometime in the future. In Japan two friends, Aika and Rion, are digging for lost treasures in the sea with a help of their submarine. The job is not doing too well. But one day their paths cross with an evil madman called Hagen who wants to destroy the earth with a help of strange substance called Lagu. His goal is to save himself ( and a lot of women ) in a spaceship before the catastrophe and to rebuild the world later...with his children. Of course, Aika and Rion will stop him.

Now, what to say about "Aika"? It's nonsense, but it's an amusing kind of nonsense. The people who claim this is "the worst anime in history" are exaggerating it a lot. The sci-fi action story is one huge fun ride in which you just have to relax and enjoy because it has many highlights: gadgets, spaceships, a bad guy who has a love relationship with his sister, a charming girl with glasses...

---------

Yes, the story has too much "fan service"( camera angles are always placed on the ground so they can catch the slips of women )but at the same time the characters are just so sweet you are willing to forgive every flaw. Just look at Rion. In one scene she is captured by the evil Hagen in a spaceship. Every crew member is a woman. Suddenly Hagen offers Rion a valuable role in the new post apocalyptic earth if she agrees to have his children( just like every crew member agreed ). But Rion gets furious beyond words and, among others, says: "You men are all the same! You just want one thing only!" I found that to be hilarious. I'm still not too fond of Aika's diadem that creates some kind of a super-woman out of her( although Rion likes it claiming she looks like a super hero )and leaves the story too sci-fi driven."Aika" is a weird comedy but it works.

Grade: 6/10
