Cover for the video

Rating: 1 Rampage

1212 AD. During the crusades, an innocent soldier finds himself betrayed, and leaps to his death, vowing to return as a fallen angel. Present day. Reborn as a woman named Aiko, the soldier rises as the military leader of a new crusade, successfully unites the world and abolishes all religion. Haunted by memories of a past life, Aiko travels backwards in time, and finds herself caught in an incredible battle to save the future.

Okay, see that stuff in the synopsis? That's all news to me, and I was actually paying attention to this pile of dreck. Nothing about this show made any sense whatsoever...the fact that everything just zips by without any explanations doesn't help either. The boy leader of the children's crusade (who was an angel...!?) has come back to life as a woman (actually, a hermaphrodite--you can tell they did this just to have the kinky lesbian sex scene) and wants revenge against God for betraying them...oh, and a bunch of catholic school girls fight holy wars (in their uniforms, of course) across time. Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight. Whatever.

This show can't seem to decide if it wants to be a hentai or a horror film...either way it still sucked ass. The animation was bland even three years ago, and the characters are so poorly written that you'd be better off watching it in fast-forward. The plot has more holes than Swiss cheese; one character goes "Oh, Yuki, you're alive? That's right, there was so much chaos on the battlefield that we never found your body!" ...when we'd just seen a flashback where she dies, in front of everybody, on an empty plain....WHAT??! The music was really the only part that didn't suck completely, but even that wasn't really anything special. I tried to sit through the whole thing, I really did, but it was just so convoluted and nonsensical I had to turn it off out of fear that it might cause my brain to implode. Not the worst thing I've seen, but even so it has no redeeming qualities at all, and as such should not be viewed by anyone.
