This project is supported by Stan Lee (producer, voice), yes the American comics creator of known characters from Marvel. ¿Do you think that a person like him will support a "piece of garbage"? Stan Lee will appear here, no I am not kidding and isn't a Marvel cameo.

The Reflection isn't an animation for everyone. Your first impression will be the ART. A lot of persons will consider it awful, wrong, incorrect, a total waste, something that will burn your eyes. However, the show uses a technique that tries to recreate the American comic and animation from the 60 - 80s, In other words, an read more

I think this anime really deserve better scoring than current measly 4.77.

Sound: The OST and the main song is hands down amazing and totally fitting the anime.

Art: I don't read comic books or anything like that but the art style is perfect for this kind of anime.

Story: A weak point... there is so many other stuff with superhero themes it's hard to see anything really new.

Characters: There is some great dynamic and banter between main cast but we don't really get to know them very well, at least not yet. But I certainly prefer them over any movie hero I saw till now.

Whoever thought that involving Stan lee with Anime was a good Idea must have been Drunk when he got that Idea... is not that the Idea of the anime itself is bad, It might have worked a Decade or two ago. I've heard people saying that this anime is supposed to resemble the old super heroes cartoons with comic style... but lets be serious, I've seen better old super heroes cartoons with better animation, animation style and a better plot. so for this anime "The Reflection" Either you overpraise it (just because Stan Lee), or you assume reality. that doesn't mean that this is utter read more

This show is a clusterfuck of Stan Lee's favorite heroes. Therefore the story isn't that important but ill talk about it anyway. In this world a weird gas that resembles a nuclear fallout swept over the city and the people the people that survived the attack got super powers and are called the reflected. The story treats it kinda like X-men with the mutant powers thing. our main character is a girl that doesn't know how to control her powers and she goes to a hero in hopes to learn a little more a criminal plot unfolds around her. that's as much as I read more
