When humans came down from the sky they brought with them the Testament, the guide to the path they must follow if they wish to return to the skies again. Now, in a strange world where only the islands of Japan are inhabitable, the nations of the world vie for power and protect the portions of Japan that they have claimed. And each is armed with its own ultimate weapon: a Roysmoi Opro, an Armor of Deadly Sins. But there may be a far greater threat to mankind than the Roysomi Opro, for the Testament ends abruptly, and it is now the last year. Is this the end of humanity, or can Tori Aoi and his fellow students from the aerial metropolitan ship Musashi somehow affect the course of destiny? Who and what is the HORIZON IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE?

'Horizon on the Middle of Nowhere' is one of those series that I know has some problems yet I cannot help but to greatly enjoy it anyway. Based on a series of light novels, the show has some good humour, great action and some nice emotion as well. The main problem with the series is that it takes some time to get going with the first four or five episodes of this thirteen episode season basically being the prologue with the real plot of the series as a whole not kicking off until after this. As well as this, when I first watched the series, I did find the backstory and the setting as a whole a little confusing and I have heard it said that to truly appreciate what is going on in this show you need to research the series (such as the reasons why they use Judge and Tes in place of yes, what the various races and technologies are etc.) but personally I feel that it can still be enjoyed as it is, as long as you don't try to think too much about it. Interestingly there are some explanatory note subtitles to explain some of the Japanese terms and references used in the series which was quite nice (even if I did have to pause to have time to read some of them.
The series has a wide verity of characters including merchants, knights, samurai, a cyborg, ninja, demons, robots, slimes, a half-dragon and a pair of lesbian angle techno-witches to name but a few. Due to this wide variety of characters, the series suffers from the usual problem of shows with such a large cast, namely that many don't get a lot of screen time and aren't developed as well as they should be. Having said this, the main cast members are generally well developed.
The animation for the series is generally good and I have to admit that I do love the opening credits sequence. The fights in the series are very well choreographed and are all very interesting such as a robot maid fighting a mecha, a pair of techno-witches fighting a flying mecha and what is probably my favourite fight of the series where a lady samurai fights against an 'exotic dancer'. The show does have some fanservice, mostly in the way of comedic grouping, oversized breasts and tight clothing.
Although I do prefer the original Japanese version a little more, the English dub is reasonable with some good performances as well as some that could be better. Josh Grelle and Emily Neves were good as the main characters Tori and Horizon for example and Jovan Jackson was great as the relatively minor character Galileo. On the other hand I wasn't much of a fan of Genevieve Simmons as Masazumi or Rob Mungle as Pope-President Innocentius.
Overall I would say that this first season of 'Horizon on the Middle of Nowhere' is definitely not for everyone but I did personally enjoy it and I would give it a ranking of four stars. The second season of the series is a little more consistent than this first one and I am very much looking forward to its release.
If you have the patience for the dialogue, you'll get to some amazing parts
