VINE VOICEon 16 July 2013
Kinji Touyama is a student at Tokyo Butei High School, a place that trains people to become detectives for hire known as Butei, and suffers from a condition known as Hysteria Savant Syndrome (a condition that makes him hyper-competent while sexually aroused). One day when traveling to school Kinji is targeted by a serial bomber known as the Butei Killer only to encounter the violent and skilled Butei, Aria H. Kanzaki, who forces Kinji to help her discover the bombers identity.

This two disc set includes all twelve episodes of the 'Aria the Scarlet Ammo' anime along with the bonus thirteenth episode. The series is somewhat entertaining, despite being somewhat generic in places, and has some reasonably nice ideas and some good action throughout. The series is split into three arcs (the Butei Killer arc, the Durandal arc and the Vlad arc) and I will say that while they are all reasonably good, the first is easily the best while the third is probably the weakest. While the characters in the series are also, unfortunately, somewhat generic (especially Aria who is something of a typical short Tsundere) but many of them are still interesting and my favourite is easily Reki (who has been described as Yuki Nagato with a sniper rifle).

The animation of the series is reasonably good. The English dub is also reasonable nice with Todd Haberkorn being very good as Kinji while Leah Clark and Luci Christian are very good as Aria and Riko respectively. The Japanese version of the soundtrack is also included of course and I would say both versions are around equal.

Overall I would say that this series is reasonably entertaining and probably worth four stars even if it just scrapes a four.

When I first saw the trailer for this I thought that looks interesting so I bought it knowing no more than what I saw on the trailer.
I was not disapionted made by the same people who did Toradora nd Shakugan no Shana.Aria H Konzaki is a petite high school girl who just happens to be descended from Sherlock Holmes.In fact this is a trend through out this anime as most of the characters are descendents of famous historical characters but that does not mean it is boaring. It has a lot of comedy moments and some serious moments but the story is never dull.If you have seen Toradora and Shakugan no Shana give this a go you may like this also.
