First Impressions: Aoi Sekai no Chuushin de

Aoi Sekai no Chuushin de is set in a fantasy setting where two kingdoms are fighting over the continent. These are not just any two kingdoms though, they are based on Sega and Nintendo. Segua is trying to win a losing battle against Ninterudo.

They sure are not trying to hide who Gear is inspired by.

The story for Aoi Sekai no Chuushin de is a typical one. From the little kingdom of Segua taking on the big kingdom of Ninterudo to the jealousy the former best member of the army has for the new best. If you are looking for a show with something new this is not the show.

While on the surface Aoi Sekai no Chuushin de is an average show, slightly below the surface is the console war this is all supposed to represent. The way the continent of Consume is supposed to represent the consumers is a bit clever on the part of the writer. So while the story is about the two kingdoms fighting over the land, this is all a representation of how the underdog company Sega used their best game Sonic to go up against games like Mario and Zelda. This was to try and get a bigger share of the market. It adds a bit more depth to this average show and makes it more fun to watch for me to see their depiction of how Sega tried to compete with Nintendo.

Aoi Sekai no Chuushin de Tejirof

The character Tejirof is an oddball in this show. Tejirof is inspired by Tetris and helps the Segua forces. That does not make a ton of sense since Tetris was a game used by both companies. There was a Tetris bundled with every Game Boy for a while. It did help Sega win an award for the arcade version, so I guess that is what this cooperation is supposed to represent. It makes me wonder if Tetris is going to betray them all at some point for Ninterudo. One other thing that is kind of odd is that Tejirof also seems to be inspired by Son Goku with his pole and monkey. I wonder if that will have any bearing on his character.

Aoi Sekai no Chuushin de Opal Do Anything

From first glance this show does not exactly look like an ecchi show, but it is. There is a sequence where Opal imagines Gear doing naughty things to her. Also once Tejirof joins the group, he puts innuendo into almost everything that he says.

Overall this show is not very good, but it is funny enough to keep me watching.
