Najica Turns Out OK After All

"After seeing the first 2 volumes of Najica Blitz Tactics, I was was generally disappointed in the series. Most of the stories were not first rate and there are way too many panty shots (which is apparently the trademark of the series).However, this 3rd and final volume (episodes 9-12) is definitely the best of the lot and makes the whole series worthwhile. They saved the best for last as the stories are much better and the conclusion, while somewhat inconclusive, was done OK. They left the door open to bring everyone back for another serial, I don't know if that will happen but I'm hoping for it after seeing this volume.As usual there are lots of extras on this ADV disk. If you like James Bond action and pretty girls and can tolerate 1000 fanservice panty shots, I recommend Najica Blitz Tactics."
Najica changes around

"The first two volumes of Najica were basically individual stories involving the same two people. Almost any episode could have been viewed at any time. In the third volume, however, Najica Blitz Tactics takes a sharp turn. All the stories have become very inter-related. The conclusion makes the series as good as it truely is. This aniume, in my opinion, as with most anime series that I view, end on a depressing note. This may not be as depressing as NGE or Noir ( personally one of the greatest animes ever, but also one of the most depressing), but it does take a turn from the joyous episodes prior. All in all, I enjoyed the series and I find that I enjoy the depressing endings."
Very fun and sexy!

"NBT is a like James Bond, only there's a really appealing female instead of an English man. Najica is a super spy for the government when she's not working as the President of the most successful perfume company in the world. The animation is very racy with gorgeous females in skimpy clothing in every scene and the action scenes are magnificant. This is a very ecchi anime with each episode like a rollercoaster ride. Najica's humanoid partner Lila is much like the character Chii from Chobits: ignorant at the beginning of the series, but she goes through a lot of character development until the end. This anime is pure eye candy. It's not meant to be a philisophical anime like Evangelion or .hack//sign. Instead, it's much like Cowboy Bebop in that Najica must find and retrieve a line of missing humanoids who are usually causing trouble in the world.Bottom line: This anime will keep you VERY happy for a few hours!!"
Lies, loves and golden guns...

"In this final DVD of the series we finally get to the meat. While the other episodes were all stand-alone, these four are linked together with a common thread - humaritts are starting to think for themselves. In fact the first two episodes deal with humaritts who do just that. They lie, kill and refuse to listen to orders. Is this the future for mankind's children? will Lila change also?
In the last two episodes it all falls into place as Shinba Industrial attacks Dr. Ren's secret laboratory with their private army. But Dr. Ren, the creator of the humaritts, has a private army of her own. A massive battle outside the complex mirrors the one inside as Najica and Lila sneak inside. But they will have to face Triple-X (a super-humaritt), a boy named Alpha (a male humaritt) and they have to finish the mission before an air strike levels the city the lab is under.
The ending is amazing, but not surprising for a Japanese anime. They really bring the story together in the last 100 minutes.
Extras include previews, sketches and a commentary of the last episode with Kira Vincent Davis (Najica), Monica Rial (Lila) and David Williams, who directed Najica Blitz Tactics AND Angelic Layer. The commentary is only interesting if you like women cussing and saying "panty" a lot. But it's still fun to listen to.
I happen to love the closing song and I hope they come out with either a second series or a manga. For age 17 and up."
