Plastic Little


Summary: >

Captain Tita is a young woman making a living finding rare pets. As captain of the ship Plastic Little, she's done quite well for herself. Then Tita encounters Elise, a girl is being hunted by an evil organization. Her father was working on a doomsday device for the military, before he was killed. Now only Elise has the key to stop it, but someone will have to get her there first..


Thoughts: >

Some titles strike a chord, and you remember them years later. Plastic Little is NOT one of those titles. This anime has one claim to fame: staying true to the art of Satoshi Urushihara. It's attractive to be sure, and exceptionally well animated. Unfortunately nothing else measures up. The weak plot is linear. It seems like Plastic Little is in the middle of a much bigger story the viewer never sees, and this anime only deals with the most boring chapters.

Characters have little substance, so there isn't much to develop. The attempts at comedy are pretty bad. Aside from that there's brief nudity for the sake of nudity. Visually attractive, but very forgettable. All polish with no substance.
