This is just my personal view after watching the first episode.
It felt like it was a mish mash of everything. It was like they were trying to do everything. The first episode progressed very quickly and I felt that an extra 10min would have been better for the anime to set the scene. The fight scenes were good as they used many angles but the story just seems too far out. It felt like a parallel prequel to Chobits.
There was a little cuteness here and there but not everything was clarified.
Imagine watching OnePiece for the first time, Luffy is introduced and suddenly the rest
of his crew too. Your wondering who they are and how they met which they will explain in the later episodes but that just takes the fun out of gradually introducing each crew member.
What I am trying to say is that it doesn't seem like a good anime but a little longer would have made it better and not make it feel like it was rushed and if this how the rest of the anime is set out then I might just 'kick the bucket' on this anime.
What did you think of this review?
