5.0 out of 5 stars The anime of the economic crisis, 12 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: C For Control Collection [DVD] (DVD)
Kimimaro Yoga is a college student who is always very careful with his money and works two part time jobs to get by. One night he is approached by the mysterious and eccentric Masakaki, a representative of the Midas Bank who offers Kimimaro the chance to make more money than he could via normal means by joining the other chosen Entrepreneurs (or Entres for short) in the supernatural world of The Financial District. In the Financial District Entres fight each other with the power of money and a monstrous Asset created from their future that they have to put up as collateral when joining. People can make millions in the Financial District but the consequences of losing can be disastrous in the real world.

Much like 'Spice & Wolf' (which I haven't seen) and the more recent 'Maoyuu Maou Yuusha', '[C] - Control' (or '[C] - The Money of Soul & Possibility Control' if you prefer its full title) is an anime about economics but despite the subject matter it is still a nicely made and entertaining anime. The series is quite short at just eleven episodes but I don't think that the plot was all that rushed so this was probably the right length, even if there are some slightly confusing elements to the plot. There probably is enough scope for a sequel series at some point and while I would definitely be interested if there was one, I think the story is fine as it is. There are a few characters that probably could have done with a little more in the way of development but the main characters are generally well developed enough.

The animation for the series is very well done with some beautiful scenery and some good battle scenes. There are a few places where the CGI doesn't really go very well but these are mostly minor irritations. The English dub of the series is generally very good and there are no voices that I didn't like at any point in the series. Todd Haberkorn is as good as always as Kimimaro Yoga while J. Michael Tatum playing Souichirou Mikuni, Scott Freeman as Masakaki and Martha Harms as Jennifer Sato are all very good as well. The Japanese version of the show is included as well of course and is the default language of the DVD.

'[C] - Control' is a very entertaining anime and while it probably wouldn't be the series for people who like lots of action I will still give it a full five stars as it is just so well done throughout.
