I recommend reading this if you are deciding on whether or not to watch this anime.

I'm gonna say straight up that this is not worth watching just by itself. This anime doesn't present any normal or acceptable storyline that would have any significant meaning. It is basically just a trailer for you to read the light novel.

The "story" makes absolutely no sense and you will not be able to ...
