Plot

Blue Gender revolves around a man named Yuji Kaido. He was diagnosed with an unknown disease and frozen for 20 years. When he wakes up, the world is nothing like he remembers. A race of giant bugs, known as the Blue, have ravaged the world and reduced the human population down to a fraction of what it once was.

Yuji is discovered by a female soldier named Marlene, whose orders are to take him to the human base in space. They struggle through many attacks by the Blue, and Yuji finds out he is a "sleeper," and will be used as an instrument to defeat the Blue. Along the way his relationship with Marlene grows as she tries to save his humanity.

Audio and Visuals

The audio has those eerie background themes to help make the series seem more dark and creepy. And with the number of people dieing all the time, the audio fits it perfectly. I didn't really find any of the soundtracks to be amazing. The ending song was kind of plain and annoying. You might like that type of music, but it didn't really fit the series to me.

The visuals were definitely average in the series. The characters weren't that good looking, and it had a few moments that threw me off. It wasn't terrible, but not noteworthy. The only nice thing about the visuals were the different types of Blue presented. That made the series a little more exciting in terms of visuals.

Story and Characters

The characters are developed well in the show. They take the time to show the emotional feelings of the characters and how they have to adjust to the current world. So, you can get attached to the characters really easily, which help make the story flow better.

The plot is well done, but it can get a little predictable at times. I often found myself knowing what was going to happen next, which made it harder to stay interested. But, it is a good story that holds up long enough for you to want to finish the series.

The series is mostly dark and eerie, but romance is used to help ease the depressed feeling you'll get from watching it. They took the time to develop the romance, which made me very happy, rather than just throwing it in out of nowhere.

Final Thoughts

The ending was a little let down. It felt like they rushed the ending.

Well, I can't say I hated the show. The story and development were well done, so despite the average graphics and sound, it still is worth watching at least once.

      Pros: Survival, hope, and character role reversal
      Cons: Another good story with a bad ending
      The significants of this anime is good because it gives that survival feeling like when you play Resident Evil, and it takes place with Yuji already in the middle of it all without knowing what is going on, too bad that the ending left more questions then answer's, they need to make a sequel or something so that the viewer knows what happens in the story.
