Eden's Bowy Is More Then Mediocre
(5 out of 5 stars)
"I think that because of the wide focus of genres Eden's Bowy gains great appeal. Some people complain of originality problems but I think that to strive for originality is stupid. It is hard to come up with completely original concepts. Secondly people always go with what works and sells. I think Eden's Bowy is a great anime and would gladly show it to anyone new to anime to give them a taste of all the genres. It somehow reminds me of the Final Fantasy Games made into a movie."
Interesting but Incomprehensible!

"While this series isn't one of the greatest I've seen,it isn't a total bomb. The ideas presented in the story really make you stop and think if you can get the idea of what the story is trying to say. However,for the most part,I watched this in total confusion. All I came out with in the end was "Huh?!?".
Country boy Yorn gladly does his farming,but often daydreams of visiting Eden,a land of legend which passes overhead through the sky now and then. Little does he know...his wish is about to come true!
As Yorn is eating dinner a strange woman with steel claws tries to kill him. His father sacrifices himself to save Yorn. In the meantime,a princess has been kidnapped. The kidnapper hurries to Yorn's destroyed home and convinces him to come on a journey with him,accompanied by a strange girl who helped Yorn drive away his attackers. Thus begins a journey to unravel the mysteries of Yorn's world and the truth,riddled with assasins and countless other dangers.
Unfortunately,the plotline of this story is nearly impossible to follow. It is constantly shifting from place to place,story to story,character to character,explaining VERY little. For the most part,the viewer must rely on guesses as to what is going on and hope they are correct,as the scenes are never really explained in full.
Although the idea of Eden's Bowy itself is an interesting and well-thought-out one,it is lost in the anime's mess of mysterious characters,strange scenes and almost invisible plotline."
The most unbalanced piece of work I've ever seen.

"This anime is basically a SciFi/Comedy/Drama/Magical Girl/Catgirl/Elf Girl/Fantasy/Action serise. It tries way too hard to be like The Vision of Escaflwone and blend in multiple generes at once. I have never seen an anime more confused that this. I can't even explain it. It suddenly goes from serious tragety to horribly mistimed comedy.(try to imagine Jack dieing at the end of Titanic and then suddenly Rose runs accross the water in chibi form screaming and crying with huge crying eyes) It's too funny to take seriously and too serious to be funny, and it's not one of those shows that starts of stupid and gets much better later on like Inuyasha. Seruiously not recomended."
