There are two types of people in the world: those that have barely heard of anime and those that know too much about it. Perhaps I am an exception to that rule, as I like some anime like Howl’s Moving Castle, but I get the feeling that most of the good stuff I’ve probably never seen or even heard of.
Microsoft put out this commercial for Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 11, and it looks like it was made by some anime fanboy. You can watch it here, and I will have to say that it is pretty fun action. It does look good, but I have three problems with it.
1. The Main Character takes a laser shot in the face! The only result is a line that looks like a Sharpie marker across the face.
2. This animation makes the same mistake as Sucker Punch. All the action is good, but because I don’t know anything of the main character’s backstory, I have no reason to care about this.
3. The ending sets up the story for something more, and then ends on a what?
Just watch it, and make your own decisions about it.
