Coicent / Five Numbers Blu-ray (Hyb)

Two Great Adventures
You get two great stand-alone features in one package.
Coicent is a fun little adventure that manages to include an adorable budding love story without getting embarrassingly cheesy. It hits the usual anime tropes, but because of the fast pace it feels rather refreshing and fun. The visuals are amazing – the artists have managed to create a huge, bustling, colorful, and futuristic world without overwhelming the eyes. If nothing else, you should see this for the great visual presentation. The dub is very nicely done too. 5/5
Five Numbers is a completely different flavor of adventure. It’s actually a mystery, very reminiscent of “They Were 11.” Unfortunately due to the length of this OVA some things feel like they could have been explored a bit more. The visual style and animation are a bit rougher than Coicent, but still charming in their own way. The dub for Five Numbers is also very well done. 4/5
