Ultraviolet Code 044 ep03 – a woman in her last attempt at love in a gloomier Blade Runnerisque future

It’s the cynical side of anime but not quite cyberpunk, because there isn’t enough cybernetic stuff in this one. But the future certainly is gloomy, dark and dirty in this one without the awe, the sense of parading and the overblown 80’s music score (ala Bubblegum Crisis).

It’s like today’s Tokyo, only darker, edgier, grimmer. It’s nothing like the shiny, neon-flashing imaginative Tokyo/Mega City in BGC, Blade Runner, or even Kill Bill.

Her fate is clear. The end of this romance is clear, too. I guess it’s how we get there that matters.

Again, Romi’s voice is the only thing that’s holding the entire show up. Her deep and magnetic voice thrills me.

The action sequence does not, however. Not that it’s awful. It’s just isn’t anything spectacular.

You know, I’m not the type that believes “Love at first sight”. Hence to me, this is a little bit contrived. But again, 44 really doesn’t have that much longer to live, so why not fall in love with a pretty blond boy? An enemy at that. It’s a nice setting for a thrilling romance. But…

Nah, too over used for my taste. I’m still crazy about 80’s and I’d rather go watch BGC or Blade Runner and feel the awe that I first felt long ago, and with better sound track, too.

Boy, Romi’s mature voice is hot.

I'm a hardcore Anime Fan and I'm proud of it. I know so many things and I've acquired so much knowledge you wouldn't believe. But my love is anime. I've been drifting in this world for so long that I don't even know what an anchor means. I've seen so many shows that I've lost count. The only thing I'm sure of myself is that I care for the lowly and disenfranchised. I hate the rich and powerful and I love what I do, or what I can do. I like anime and I don't mind watching different types of shows. I have experience in different types of Japanese animation. I would be called an "expert" in a bizzaro world. One day, I'd like to start a revolution. I love the US, pizza, beer, sashimi, Chinese food, and steak. But I love freshly baked bread more than a well-aged steak. In reality, if I were born Japanese I'd be a real, hardcore Otaku. I love to love and I can hate strongly. I'm passionate in nature and I don't mind shedding tears.
