Now, to talk the last series, it is Virgin Fleet
. The premise that that the Russo-Japanese War never actually concluded and only came to end due to a “cease-fire” agreement brought about due to the Japanese military's discovery and immediate usage of “Virgin Energy”. Since then, 15 years have passed with the Japanese military training young virgin girls to harness their power, all the while the Japanese and Russian militaries are playing political games of being friends but ultimately waiting to see who's going to be the first one to pull the trigger and restart the war. Despite the title, the series isn't actually sexual in nature at all and takes itself much more seriously in the fact that there's the looming possibility of war breaking out at any moment. And the three “main” protagonists do become confronted with the fact that, despite being just kids, they are required to become soldiers due to the nature of their power. Aside from leading up to the possibility of a war, the other “plot” of the series is the MAIN
main protagonist having to come to the decision of if she wants to get married to her fiance or become a soldier, and this brings out a “cuter” part of the series that alleviates some of the pressure with how mature the rest of the show unfolds. All that being said, the story does develop in a matter like it feels like the writers were intending to build up to something bigger (Which leads me to assume that the OVA was made as a promo for the PlayStation game), but it does end on a note where the story can end there and the viewer can walk away satisfied. As far as the animation, it's much more developed and active than either of the previous series that I mention in this post, though I did find the art style to be more off-putting. Also, it was actually rather nice to see a flight-based series that didn't rely on 3D animation. And, as for the audio, the series is rather silent a lot of the time with most of the music kicking in for the joke and emotional scenes. Overall
, Virgin Fleet
is another series that I would very much recommend to anyone interested. I just look forward to seeing where the game picks up with the story.
