Elemental Gelade

Plot: The Red Lynx sky pirates have just secured quite the haul, and rookie Coud Van Giruet can't wait to find out what is in it. He opens a huge box and finds a girl inside. When members of a group called Arc Aile board the Red Lynx's ship, they explain that the girl in the crew's cargo is a being called an Edel Raid and offer a handsome sum of money if the crew would hand her over to them. But Coud refuses to sell the girl off to them. That's when another unwelcome bunch invades the ship and starts attacking Coud and the crew. Coud takes the girl and runs from the invaders, and when they are cornered, he protects her. Just when the situation is beginning to look bleak, the girl joins with him, allowing him to wield an amazing sword. This is only the beginning of the adventure of Cou and the Edel Raid, Ren... (A-)

Characters: B+

Art & Animation: B+

Voice Acting: B

Music: A-

Objectionable Content: Suggestive themes, nondescript nudity, profanity

Other: It's a bit on the confusing side, as there are lots of sides playing cat and mouse. But the adventure is never boring, and there are some pretty good laughs.

The manga's art is better, and the story is changed up a bit. However, it has stronger objectionable content. (I have only read two volumes of it.)

Overall Score: B+

Recommendation: 2/5
