Heaven’s Lost Property: The Angeloid of Clockwork Review [Capsule Computers]

Travis Bruno of Capsule Computers writes:

"Ecchi anime have quite a reputation in the industry and whenever one is licensed, there is a certain group of people who sigh and shake their heads. However time and time again ecchi and harem series have been released overseas and their quality has proven that these series deserve their place in the industry and offer more than just casual fan service. One such series has been Heaven’s Lost Property. With it’s nonsensical humor, intriguing plot and great cast of characters the series has made quite a name for itself in the West." (Anime, Heaven’s Lost Property: The Angeloid of Clockwork) 9/10

I was on the fence with this one for awhile, thanks mostly to the fact that there are a number of changes with Hiyori as far as her abilities go compared to the manga. However if this is as good as the review says then I'll have to bite when the movie comes out next week.

This looks like a generic Harem, not entirely sure why the reviewer would give it a 9. I'm avoiding it like the plague. Hope the movie bombs too.

If the whole reason you're ignoring it is because it may be a harem series is the biggest example of judging a book by it's cover. Sure it may have a harem aspect but if you pass this series up you'll be missing out on tons of comedy and an actually engaging storyline. I haven't seen this movie yet but from the sound of it they do a better job of building Hiyori's character than the manga even did.

it does not look, it is a generic harem. These capsule guys don't have good taste for anime.

3/10 would be the highest this garbage show and movie would get from me.

I don't know about the anime, but the manga is great. See the manga itself has fanservice too (it's there to compliment the comedy, story, etc.). You can NEVER judge a book by its cover... even if it looks like a generic shoujo manga (from my experience).
Now when adapting from a manga with lots of fanservice you'll get an anime... with EVEN more fanservice and generic looking because that's what sells.
I plan to watch the anime later, but I only know one change that irks me, but the rest seems fine.
Those coming for a generic harem anime/manga will find it to have a deeper story than most would think... before this even came out I tried reading one of the mangaka's previous manga... it was too depressing for me even to finish, but I knew that this mangaka was capable of creating a good story (at least emotionally).

Well with this review, and their review of Persona 4, I believe it is safe to say this site has lost all credibility.
koga88  +   667d ago
And please pray tell elaborate further as to why you believe that Persona 4 Golden is a bad title or why this show is terrible when it hasn't even been released for a week. Or are you one of those people who see boobs and runs away because of art and reasons and hipsters.

Making a lot of assumptions aren't we?

1. Clearly when I said persona 4, I was referring to the really good Anime, that if I member correctly, this site gave a 4/10 to.

2. Ever heard of subs?

3. I never said anything on the series as a whole, just the movie, which really is, at best, nothing more then a glorified recap episode.

Psycho, P4 the Anime was a horrible adaptation.

@Psycho

1. There are multiple reviewers for this site and if you pay attention, you'll notice that the reviewer for these two submissions is different. Also you'll notice that the reviewer of Persona 4 Golden is not the same as Persona 4 Anime, different people's opinions and such means different thoughts. Reviews are at best opinions.

2. This means you downloaded probably a lower-quality version of a show and were forced to read probably low quality translation and were not given the final English product complete with pristine blu-ray and everything else.

3. If you actually read the review, you'll notice how the person mentioned that while half of the thing is apparently a recap, it is also worked in a way that still provides a new perspective from things for those who have seen everything. Are you so jaded that new viewer's can't enjoy anything you've ever seen before?

Yeah, no.

ThePsychoGamer speaks the truth. I'm even starting to believe that these capsule guys don't even watch the anime they review and they just copy paste something from someone else and then put some random score based on how much they like the art-style. XD
