Verdict: sucks
Review:

Debutante Detective Corps


Summary: >

You would think that in a school of rich girls that there would be plenty of nice cute hostage taking opportunities. Well that's the sort of idea that some criminals happened to have. Imagine that? Those darn criminals. Unfortunately they picked the wrong school and the wrong girls. Each of the girls has their own unique skills and will show that their more than a match for your common thug.

You will have to forgive me as I rewrite this review from the sad state it was in not so long after I actually saw it - long time ago. However this is one review that must not disappear into the annals of history. For I must warn others of the impending stupidity contained herein.

As I once stated, the designs for the girls were cute. Not spectacular, but cute. And that is the only positive thing about this anime. Lets see here we have these rich girls attacked by terrorists, and each has a special skill. Oh surely this will be sheer comedy. No, the jokes only on you because this title never really manages to be funny. The joke is on your wallet for spending money on it. The joke is on your mom or wife who has to clean up after you puking on the floor after watching this title despite the fact that Archen told you not to watch it. But would you listen to 'ol Archen? No. Well fine then, go watch it. And you can come back to read my review of "Archen told you so" with a big 'ol screen cap of you getting your ass whooped by your mom / wife after cleaning up the vomit off the floor after your viewing. And after that you can go to amazon.com and notice that it has a 4/5 rating there from customers - what are they, on CRACK?! You'll come crawling back to my site, and next time you might listen!

Anyway there just isn't much to see here. It's bad to the point where I can't even bring myself to call it cheesy. It's just total fluff with no substance, and without whatever benefits you may possibly get from fluff.
