Holy Crap. Kite Liberator Sucked.

One of my roommates rented Kite: Liberator and we watched it over the weekend.

Wow.

It has none of the redeeming qualities (some great action sequences, decent drama, standout visual style) that Kite has. The key plot points made no sense. There was sci-fi content, if by sci-fi you mean the typical garbage that the Sci-Fi Channel enjoys broadcasting. Inappropriate cutesy-ness was an issue.

Monaka's this badass vengeful force professionally taking out human filth? Someone with that kind of a grasp on reality wouldn't react the way she did when she confronted the monster. The same goes for her persona at work. Nothing made sense.

And if Umetsu is planning to hook fans into watching this thing due to the controversy around Kite's graphic sexual content (which is why my roommate rented it in the first place), he flopped on that metric, too. A half-dozen gratuitous panty shots? Weak, dude. Weak.

No need to watch this one, folks.

What!!! No sex scenes!!! The movie was pretty bad. I went into this movie with very high expectations since Kite was an awsome anime. This movie was a bit tame for me actually. Maybe this movie is a set-up for a future series or something, I hope.

Indeed: Kite: Liberator Sequel Being Written by Creator Umetsu

Sure, the ending was abrupt, but where the hell the story can go from here?
