Blasting a hole into the "new school" Anime scene. A must watch.
13 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Blast of Tempest: The Civilization Blaster is a perfectly paced story about all things that make any story great. Mahiro Fuwa and Yoshino Takigawa are the protagonists and give Shakespeare references out the "wahzoo". Even though I don't like Shakespeare, because he's referenced so often, it complements the show more than I could have hoped. If you enjoyed a combination of Lost, Eden of The East, or Harry Potter you will enjoy this.

At first you don't know what will happen to Yoshi. You don't know why he's necessarily doing what he does. Yoshi is often confused and unsure. Meet the female expounder who is also lost yet focused, Hakaze Kusaribe. This is what makes the show great. There are lots of mysteries.

The rich pace is balanced with ease of action. Like in Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon or Hero but in a sci-fi kind of way. The action scenes are spectacular. Performed with ferociousness and clarity. You don't see this often, even in main stream movies, so this is a gem that shows the power of Anime.

But first comes the animation. The first episode has butterflies, snow, detailed characters and more. This really adds to the cinematography and makes me love the show. It gives a special feeling...like you are there or want to be. I hope Blast keeps this type of animation abundant all the way to the end. It would really give it an edge visually! This helps make the pace warmer, and smoother like an awesome latte with whip creme on top or tea made flawlessly.

Warning level: Medium Though the women are scantly clad at times, it could be worst and there is no nudity, groping, bad moe etc. Also in some of the scenes it's realistic and makes sense. It's not added purely for fan service. There is some suggestiveness but I'm not sure if it's translation error or not.

With a lot of promise in the first two episodes I would say Blast of Tempest could be just as good if not better than Angel Beats! and Eden of The East!

I recommend watching this all the way through without reading many reviews or doing much research as it would make the show less powerful (I already accidentally read some things on wiki!!! and I'm very angry). Spoilers weaken what makes the show interesting. Especially a show like this.
