News Bones' Upcoming Bōnen no Xamdou Anime Trailer Streamed
posted on 2008-04-25 03:58 EDT
The official website of the Bones anime studio's Bōnen no Xamdou project is streaming a trailer. (The promotional video requires Microsoft Windows, Internet Explorer 5.5 or higher, and either Adobe Flash Player or Windows Media Player.) Xamdou is the latest in-house creation from animators of Fullmetal Alchemist and Eureka 7. The story follows a boy named Akiyuki who is heading to school with two friends when an explosion occurs. In the mysterious light from the explosion, Akiyuki transforms into a creature called Xamdou. Xamdou goes on a rampage which is only stopped when a red-haired foreign girl appears.

If this film causes more permanent damage than most Pokémon outings, that's wholly the fault of its main character, Keldeo.
On the whole, The Battle for Doldrey is a mixed bag of strengths and weaknesses. While that may be true of most things, there are few places where those lines are so clearly drawn as in this film.
Although this second volume does show sparks of humor and some hints of developing a plot in its later stages, it is not enough to save a generally shallow, generic, and uninspired series. It is still primarily a series for those with fetishes for maid outfits and fans of “harem” romantic comedies.
