OP 1 - Black + White (Iori Nomizu)

Ending songs
ED 1 - To Be Continued? (Kaori Sadohara)

Genre: Action, Comedy, Fantasy


I don't animes with ridiculously long name so lets just shorten this one for the sake of the review. I'll nickname it "Mondaiji", just because that's part of the anime's title. 

"Mondaiji" is as awesome as it gets. It may not be the most popular thing ever, but I was hooked the very moment I started it. It gives off a very MMORPG esque feel, making it interesting and intriguing. I mean, it literally SPELLS MMORPG, with the talk about guild, towns, factions and the fact that it has different races walking around just makes the atmosphere even better! Throw in some very likable characters and a charismatic as f**k protagonist to create one hell of a ride. "Mondaiji" feels unique, its pretty much different from most anime out there, and feels akin to stuff like ".Hack" or "Sword Art Online" (though its not quite that level yet). It may be stupidly short, but its definitely a trip worth taking as long as you aren't too much of a stubborn prick.

Uh huh, the girls are sexy, that's for sure.

I've been growing a liking for Iori Nomizu, both for her musical talent and her seiyuu talent. "Black + White" is the anime's opening, its ang by Iori Nomizu (seiyuu of Kurou Usagi) and it sounds great, just like most of the songs I've heard from her. I am a sucker for songs with a badass fantasy feel, "Black + White" easily fits the bill, though I'm still waiting for something as awesome as "Passionate". The ending song is just funny, its "To Be Continued?" by Kaori Sadohara. It has a pretty catchy tune to it, and I guess it just tries to be cute and funky at the same time, which works. I always bob my head side to side when I see the ending dance animation :3.

Rating: 8.0/10

Despite its short length, there's not much of a downside to "Mondaiji". From what I can see, the potential to grow from what we've seen is IMMENSE, HUGE. There's so much that can add to the world and I'm so excited for it. The very brief first season serves as a great stepping stone for what's to come. The concept of the different characters and gifts just makes everything cool as f**k, combined with the talk about guilds, a different world, politics,'ve got yourself a pretty badass franchise. Plus, the protagonist is one of the best I've seen in an anime yet, right there on top with some of my favorite anime protagonists (Lelouch and crew). Its not often that our main character isn't some snot nosed prick that acts like a pussy, doesn't like violence, wants to protect everyone no matter what, is weak, needs to train forever....etc etc. Izayoi is the pinnacle of awesomeness.

Meet the team, aka "Izayoi and his angels"

Meet the 3 problem children. Izayoi is a teenage boy who gets bored out his mind for no reason. He wants to have fun and take a challenge at anything, but because of his insane fighting ability, nobody in his world is able to subdue his taste for "fun" and "challenge". Asuka is a rich girl living in her world where she always comes first because of her commanding telepathic ability, and wants to escape from her boredom. You is just another girl who wants to communicate with animals. The 3 of them get teleported to "Little Garden", a world where denizens from other worlds are brought from because of their special talents, like the talents Izaoi, Asuka and You posses. These powers are called gifts, and the summoner of these 3 children, Kurou Usagi, explains their new found purpose in this world....

After all is said and done, "Mondaiji" is a great anime that doesn't disappoint other than its short length. I'm actually inclined to go read the light novel if they don't plan on doing a second season, because I just fell in love with its universe in these 10 episodes. There's so much that can happen, and I can't wait to see what. This is mostly a shonen anime, but I see no reason not to give it a spin.
