Our Review : Divergence Eve is a show that shows some great potential with its diverse character line up and seemingly interesting plot, but in actuality is quite a bit of fail.
The story, i am actually trying to still figure out myself. Things just don't seem to make much sense no matter which way you look at them. Especially that WTF ending that leads into season two, which i have not finished watching at this time but will get to in time.
The back story is simple enough, and you can understand what is going on at specific moments in the show, but to get an overall idea of what is what, and when is when will twist you brain.
The art work is done very well, the animation is decent, the only down side is the use of of CGI with the anime. This is one case where the two are not mixed properly and it makes it look really stupid.
The characters are nothing special, though some of the higher ranked secondary characters do grab your attention with secret plotting and what not. The point of the characters in this is basically fan service. Boobs bouncing and clothes that are very revealing or being ripped off are something to expect. Nothing particularly memorable about them.
This was a mildly entertaining show. Its interesting to see the alien things fighting and some of the sci fi elements they throw in to spice it up. Since the show was confusing as hell, it doesn't get high marks in that area, but its not completely terrible.
Overall, this is something to watch if you have nothing else to watch. Or if you want fan service, this is good for that too. Dont expect anything much from it, and if you make it through the show, there is a season two that will hopefully make some sense of things.
Oh and watch the sub because the dub just isn't that great.
