THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS
The visuals of this show tell a fantastic story, and the music is also very good, unfortunately they don't really go together all that well.
The lyrics and tone of the music suggest some high action exciting visuals in a battle between good and evil, and while the show does have a few of those moments, it is certainly not the main theme of the story.
My other real critisism of the show is it's animation. Not a lot of movements of the characters were animated, a lot of it was just freeze-frames or a few frames of animation repeated over and over, usually I don't mind this kind of thing but here it was used almost exclusively and it became slightly annoying. However the art itself was certainly not bad and at some points even fairly impressive.
The story is about a man who's fed up with his 9 to 5 job and just wants to escape this boring life and do something exciting.
He imagines several thrilling scenarios, with slightly different looking versions of himself going on bizarre adventures.
Now this story is a bit of a cliche, but I think it was told well, the only real problem with the story is it's pacing; It seems to drag on in the middle, showing several scenes with the exact same impact and meaning behind them, it feels like this was purely done to fit the full song into the video.
BIG SPOILERS SECTION
But the real reason this show is pretty good in my eyes is because of it's last few seconds in which we see the main character; now with bright red hair instead of brown!
..... still getting on the same train to work.
This scene, however, is almost ruined by the fact that there's still epic battle music playing in the background. If they had just waited for a few seconds and shown these 5 seconds in which the "big reveal" happens in silence this scene would have been amazing and lifted this show from a six to a seven. read more
