Product Description

All 13 episodes of the anime following the adventures of a pair of high school students who take a class that trains them to become Butei, armed mercenaries who are permitted to capture criminals. While Aria Holmes Kanzaki (voice of Rie Kugimiya) seems a natural gunslinger, her classmate Kinji Toyama (Junji Majima) is hopeless to say the least - that is, until he discovers a surprising key to success. The episodes are: 'The Girl', 'Aria the Quadra', 'First Mission', 'Butei Killer', 'Butei Charter, Article 1', 'Maiden of the Hotogi Shrine', 'Caged Bird', 'Durandal', 'Honey Trap', 'Special Training', 'Infiltration', 'Vlad' and 'Butei's Going On a Hot Spring Training Camp'.

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.

An ok anime, it doesn't seem to quite know what it wants to be. Firstly it's not a complete series, having a somewhat abrupt cliff hanger ending. Starts well enough, with an engaging story about a school for "security agents," a sort of boy meets fiery girl. There follows a few comedy style encounters with his childhood sweetheart, and a developing story about a rival organization. Various plot twist follow (no spoilers,) but the story seemed to go off at a tangent, and at 13 episodes it felt too short for any satisfying conclusions. There is some good animation, and excitement to be found, and maybe if a follow up series becomes available it would bring the sense of completion that this one unfortunately lacked.

I thought this animé would be an action packed series with lots of gunplay but instead, it's full of pantie shots. The story is port too giving me no reason to watch beyond episode 2.
