Legend of Lemnear

A Parent's Guide to Anime
Rated: M

Recommended for Mature Audiences

Reviewed by Chris Cleveland:

Without a doubt, "Legend of Lemnear" is a gorgeous anime. Satoshi Urashihara's ("Plastic Little") art is always lovely, though.

Problem is, this anime has even less plot than "Plastic Little" does. One can even say that it has no real plot at all. Just another standard good (and scantily-clad) female vs. evil overlord story (as if any anime fan hasn't seen THAT one a billion times before). Only with no character development, no backstory, no subplots, just the barebones for a story and nothing more.

Nothing more, unless you count how well-animated the whole thing is. And, being a Satoshi Urashihara anime, there is also a fair amount of very gratuitous nudity thrown in there, as well. The violence has been cranked up quite a bit with this anime, though. Well, the plot (or lack thereof) revolves around pretty much that, anyway.

A few decent (if quite graphic) battle scenes, beautiful art and animation, a fair amount of nudity, and not much else. That sums up "Legend of Lemnear" pretty well. Very well-decorated on the exterior, but the inside is as empty as it can get.

Parent's Guide Rating:

red (recommended for mature audiences)

Lots of nudity, a gratuitous attempted rape scene, lots of graphic violence, and not a shadow of a story behind any of it. The equilavent of an R-rating. What else can be said?
