Our Review : C3 centers around a boy named Haruaki Yachi who one day recieves a black cube from his father. His father sends him cursed intruments to try and make him break the it because he is resistant to curses. However the black cube is actually a girl named "Fear" and she is a type of intrument, a "Fear in Cube". She suddenly starts living with him, much to the dismay of Haruaki's childhood friend Konoha.
However as the story progresses on, it develops into something much darker. Turns out that there are other people who wants the " Fear in Cube", and they come after Fear. Fear's dark past is revealed to the others, and by this time if you still think Fear is just a cute ordinary girl, then you are wrong. As her past is revealed, she starts to lose control of herself just by seeing blood, turning a cute girl into something more of a monster. That fight was one of the scariest ones ever, with Fear having a twisted expresssion of a smile on her face while killing. Also when Fear started to question her own existence, that was probably one of the most moving scenes in this anime which actually made me feel really sad.
Childhood friend Konoha is also not your ordinary childhood friend. Her real form is of something much more badass. Haruaki is also not useless, as he is shown that he has a badass side where he can fight against other people who want to destroy Fear. As for the class prez Kirika, I have to say that she is not normal too, as she is connected to a mysterious organization whose objective involves cursed tools.
Art is of BakaTest, and I'm really pleased with the character designs. But what I really love about this show is the wonderful OP song and animation. OP is probably one of the best of seiyuus, sung by Tamura Yukari. Along with it are beautiful animations with cherry blossoms flying everywhere. OP2 is also very nice, sung by Kitamura Eri, as the story focuses more on Kirika.
I have to say I'm very impressed with Tamura Yukari's voice. Finally we had a cute loli not voiced by Rie, and Yukarin does not fail my expectations. She can do a cute high pitched voice while also doing a lower, scarier voice for the transformed Fear. Kaji Yuuki is also a great seiyuu with a nice gentle voice which I think is perfect for Haruaki. Along with Chihara Minori as Konoha and Kitamura Eri as Kirika, it definitely sounds like a harmony to me :)
Overall, C3 was a nice anime to watch and enjoyable. If there is a 2nd season I would definitely watch it!
Feedback is greatly appreciated, thanks! :)
