I'm trying to decide if I should check out this anime or not, but there are no reviews for it on this site. Has anyone seen it recently enough to give me an idea of how appropriate it is? I would really appreciate a Christian perspective! :-)

Sorry! This is the first forum I've ever used so I knew that I was bound to make a mistake...I was just hoping it wouldn't be so soon! ;-) Thank you for moving it for me. :-)

I was trying to decide how to respond, in that there's some pretty weird stuff in it, but noting your sponsorship of Rax & Assoc., I don't recall seeing anything in the roughly half-dozen episodes of BR I've seen, that would be any more objectionable than what you'd see in the show to which that alludes.

I think I see what you mean. ;-) Thanks a heap! In return I give you "air from my lungs".

Because there's nothing more fantastic than an Eccleston reference.

My pleasure. I hope there are no unpleasant surprises for you in the show, especially the portion I have not seen.

It's been a few years since I saw Busou Renkin, so I don't know if my two cents are reliable enough for you, but I wouldn't recommend watching it - less because of content, more because it just isn't worth it. After a very interesting and promising beginning, I found that Busou Renkin devolved into annoying shounen tropes and just...utter ridiculousness. Sorry, no, I can't take an anime seriously if the villains are named things like Moonface (who has a waxing/waning moon for a face) and Dr. Butterfly (whose moustache is shaped like a butterfly) *facepalm* The ending is also one of the most boring, anticlimactic endings to any anime I've ever seen.

As for content, most of what I remember is pretty average for anime - maybe some crude jokes or a bit of innuendo. The two things that I really found objectionable were a brother-sister duo who have a really disturbing couple of episodes where they say the words to a traditional wedding vow to each other :/ That really creeped me out and almost made me stop watching. The other really disturbing thing is one of the main villains, Papillon. He wears a skintight leotard and/or a pink speedo...that he rummages around in, because apparently that's a great place to store his belongings?! :mutter:

I wouldn't bother with Busou Renkin if I were you. Don't waste your time - go find something more worthwhile.

Well, in that case, I may drop it instead of continuing it.
As for something better, I'd recommend Xam'd, which also has pseudo-technical superpowers and is a pretty good show all around.
