Review: Level E

Level E

Alex: Ya know, the funny thing about Level E is that it makes every moment of its 13 episodes count. Nowdays you hardly find an adventure or a plot heavy anime make every moment count, but for a comedy anime to do that…well, it’s unheard of. If that hasn’t sold you on it, then I aim to by the end of this review.

I remember when it was first around, Mimi was like “OMG LEVEL E IS GONNA BE AWESOME”, but I saw the label “sci-fi” and “comedy”, and it put me off to the point I wasn’t excited about it anymore. Actually, it turns out that it’s absolutely fantastic. Think funky and awesome twists, outrageous comedy, and no end to the amount of twists which will have you cracking up. It wouldn’t be a lie to say that I was cracking up at the first episode and I was addicted every since. It’s had moment which caused me to fall off my chair with laughter, it’s just that good.

And the main character. That main character. Prince Baka Ki El Dogra is a douchebag through and through. He’s got an imagination so brilliant that it could scare anyone, and he has an over the top desire to cause havoc and hell for everyone, and he’s creative about it. The show DOES dip around the middle, when it takes one particular arc just an episode too far, and it doesn’t manage to live up to the amazing first episodes, but that’s not really reason enough to put the show down, since even the average episodes of Level E are better than most comedies I see.

The anime is nothing short of downright brilliance. The sheer creativity which goes into every episode, every pun and every comedy skit will leave you laughing. There’s no doubt about it.

Alex’s Score: 8 Meeps out of 10 (Very Good)

One thought on “Review: Level E

  1. I was a bit worried that the show had used up its best material after the Macbac arc, but I was delighted to be proven wrong by the great ending. Very glad I followed it this season, more comedies need to be this funny and well written, and it managed to say what it wanted to without overstaying its welcome or running its jokes into the ground.
