Rio: Rainbow Gate!

Time for another review! I know that a lot of people aren’t very fond of this one. I constantly see people summarizing this show as; “more fan service than story”. That may be true for some, but a lot of others, like myself, had a pretty good laugh. It’s not all about the naughty side of it all. It’s about the comedy and the story as a whole.

The artwork is what first drew me in. I didn’t know much about the story, so I just stayed because I liked the look of Rio, one of the main characters. It’s a fascinating character with a strange personality. But, of course, that’s only one of many other things.

The story came later on. I watched a few episodes and soon learned what it was all about. I had my doubts at first, thinking that it would tempt children to take up gambling. But no, it turned out quite innocent, providing you can look past the mild nudity. Hell, I couldn’t even call that nudity to be honest.I say that despite the fact I actually started playing Party Poker, a website where you can play all sorts of fun games and actually make a little money out of it (if you’re lucky).

I’m sure a lot of people out there would like this show if you gave it a shot. Don’t just stop after the first episode. Give it a try, look past the fan service and enjoy the comedy.

Plot Summary: The “Howard Resort Hotel” is an entertainment destination where people gather from around the world to grab huge fortunes. In the casino is a beautiful female dealer named Rio Rollins, known far and wide as the “Goddess of Victory”.

In order to approach closer to her mother, one of history’s greatest dealers, she does battle to gather up the legendary cards called “gates”. Those who gather all 13 gate cards are presented with the title MVCD (Most Valuable Casino Dealer), proof that they are a top dealer.

Set in a vast resort, an exciting battle begins with rival dealers that’ll take your breath away! Throw in some “supreme comedy” and a story that makes you cry when you least expect it, these cute and sexy girls will explode off your screen! With everyone’s cheer of “Leave it to Rio!”, Lady Luck’ll be with you, too!
