      Now here's an anime with a bit of an undeserved reputation. For those who don't know, Plastic Little has the ill-rep for featuring, *gasp*, nudity! Yes, the nudity is gratuitous and unnecessary, but the only reason I think it's so infamous, is that there isn't much else to recommend. Plastic Little essentially tries to be a cheesy, fun little movie. Now, how fun it is is entirely up to the viewer, but personally I found it more boring than entertaining. The plot is about a cheesy as they get. Captain Tita and the crew of the ship, Cha-Cha Maru, are animal traders, capturing and selling exotic animals. However, during one accidental meeting, Tita runs into Elysse, a girl on the run from thugs. Tita saves Elysse from the thugs, only to learn of a conspiracy which threatens the entire planet. So it's up to Tita and her band of heroes to go up against an evil corporation, uncover the conspiracy and, *double gasp*, save the world. Whoop-dee-do (pardon my enthusiasm). The action was far from exciting, considering how ridiculous the whole premise was. Mind you, it could have been saved by a liberal dose of humor, but unfortunately the laughs were few and far between. Yes, there were some rather funny moments (some because of jokes about Tita's, er, chest size), but there were also a few unnecessary serious bits. Since the plot can't be taken remotely seriously, these more somber moments felt very out of place. Even though this movie is a bit on the short side, the main characters are rather fleshed out. Heading the cast is the spunky, young Captain Tita. She's kind of charming, rather likable, but she's about the only character I really cared for. Elysse was borderline irritating, as were a few others of Tita's crew. The villains were pretty shallow, but given the stock plot, is this really that big a surprise? The visuals were sure nice to look at, though. Colors were bright and vivid, with decent anima
      tion and good artwork. The only reason I can really recommend this movie is because of its reputation. I suppose if you're in the right mood (read: rather bored), and you've got an hour to kill, then you could do worse. Of course, you could also do a lot better.
