Maken-Ki! Battling Venus: Complete Series

 (TV) (2011)

Maken-Ki! Battling Venus: Complete Series Blu-ray despite solid video and great audio falls short as an overall poor Blu-ray release

Takeru enrolled in Tenbi Academy because the girl-to-guy ratio is, like, 3 girls for every guy. But this bevy of bombshells is actually a school where teens beef up their combat skills using a magic power thingy called a Maken. Redheads with wicked high kicks, shocking blonde bullies, and aggressive brunettes are EVERYWHERE. And every time there’s a brawl, their clothes tend to disintegrate.

For more about Maken-Ki! Battling Venus: Complete Series and the Maken-Ki! Battling Venus: Complete Series Blu-ray release, see Maken-Ki! Battling Venus: Complete Series Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.0 out of 5.

Maken-Ki! Battling Venus: Complete Series Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

With over four hours of material on the first disc—and nearly that much on the second, when you factor in the high definition bonus content—you might expect Maken-Ki! to look heavily compressed on Blu-ray. However, while Funimation's 1080p/AVC-encoded presentation is not without its issues —most notably, some occasional banding present in fine color gradients—there are no outright distractions here. At least, nothing that will pull your eyes away from the kind of non-stop ogling the show encourages. The series has what appears to be a soft-by-design look, with somewhat hazy colors and lines that are less than crisp, but the HD transfer definitely benefits the material, which looks clean and true-to-source. (And much more refined than would be possible in standard definition.) The animation itself is functional but well-short of impressive; fight scenes are often herky-jerky—with freeze frames and artificial-looking slow motion—and the characters in general are stiff, only moving when absolutely necessary. The exception, of course, being the ridiculous breast physics.


Maken-Ki! Battling Venus: Complete Series Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Funimation has provided two audio options, both in the Dolby TrueHD codec. The default is a 5.1 English dub, while the original Japanese mix is relegated to a 2.0 stereo track. I would bemoan this last fact, but the sound design, like the series' characters and story, is something of an afterthought. Language purists won't miss much here. The multi-channel dub puts out some rear-channel activity during fight scenes—swooshes, electric crackles, etc.—and the weirdly sentimental music is often bled into the surround speakers, but none of this is central to the experience. Dialogue takes precedence, and in either language, it's always clear and easy to understand. Not surprisingly, the Japanese track is more authentic and better performance-wise—the English voice acting can seem a little over-enthusiastic—but whatever your preference, you've got a decent lossless option. The only oddity here is that it's impossible to switch spoken languages or subtitles mid-episode using your remote. You have to retreat to the main menu and confirm your choice there. Do note that there are no subtitles for the English mix, while the Japanese track has forced subtitles.
