[C] The Money of Soul and Possibility Control Review
September 6th, 2011 in Anime, General Reviews, [C] The Money of Soul and Possibility Control by facade
Okay, this is my first anime review so i hope everyone is gentle with the comments >.< . I recently started watching this relatively new anime called ‘[C] The Money of Soul and Possibility Control‘ but we’ll call it [C] for short. It was first aired in Japan on April 15th 2011 and ran until June 24th. Overall id say the anime is about a 7/10. It has a very unique plot which more or less deals with the current global financial crisis, where an average economics college student (Kimimaro Yoga) is visited by a man one day who offers him a practically unlimited source of money if he allows his ‘future’ to be held as collateral. Every week he must participate in a match called a deal (666 seconds long) in an area.. called the Financial District as in Entre (short for entrepreneur) in order to keep as well as gain money and to avoid forfeiting his future.
The matches are done PvP styled where they use assets (kinda like summoned creatures although they can sometimes be `relatively human-like) to attack using their money as fuel in a form of an investment, attacks must be set with a particular amount of money which determines its size and range. Those that hit cause ‘interest’ where money from the opponent is transferred to your side and those that miss cause money equivalent to what was invested in it to be lost. If an entre looses a match then he is banished from the Financial District forever and their future is forfeited. As the sotory progresses the main character has to make choices that affects not only the Financial District but the real world as well. Overall I think the anime is pretty cool, as a Breakdown id give it an 8 for animation and 7 for its story line, definitely worth a watch as it is short and sweet (only 11 episodes). Enjoy!
