The story is set in Japan in 2020. The story centers on Shin Hazama, and a version of himself who led a different life in another Japan appears. A crack opens in the everyday life that he thought was impossible to change. Boys and girls have to decide what to think and choose when the world changes completely. The battle with another world and another self begins.
Basically, it's a 3D Less-Anime-More-BS with an empty story, moe characters, made in photos and good music. Would you watch it?
No spoiler no life, it would be too vague so:
SPOILER ALERT SPOILER ALERT SPOILER ALERT SPOILER ALERT SPOILER:
Story: Lots of nonsense, some witch who predicts the future and kills people. Everything starts from the title "Reversed World" aka "Paralel World", but it turns out it's the same world?
Now we can easily understand the cliche and common this concept of this story, following a MC more dull and careless than my sliced cheese. Problems are showing themselves from the first frame, in which someone from
the original world gets killed for knowing[nothing], everyone cherring a man's death. Hooray, economy..
So, until the end of the series, we are understanding that there are two worlds who coexist in the same time and space, who can so easily interact with each other without penalty, but still everyone know of it and are still all confused. Why's that? If you don't know how to have content and fluidity in it, YOUR STORY IS OVER. How can you just never clear things up and keep adding mysteries one over another? Bet the writer doesn't have a clue either.
Music is good, as for the footsteps or any other effects choose to use something too common and small for something of a way bigger scale or different sound.
Yeah, 3D as it is but the character's movements weren't fluid at all, they moved too slow and you could tell the missing frames.
Backgrounds looked very well and deserve some credit, characters looked good too with the positions being a little more realistic than expected.
They we're cute. Yet couldn't take the opportunities and be a little clever or deductive. Also, the MC in the OP looked like Arararagi. This anime doesn't have originality at all, just balls. Eh, the least I can say is that the characters are, somehow, honest.
Music was really good, art didn't look bad at all and characters we're honest, with a somewhat interesting and empty story, but I can't ask much for a total of 25 minutes in a show, can I?
But still enjoyed it a lot. Just because it had that charm of hard-working people, but I only had expectations, because it could have been so much better.
Since nobody's reviewed this I'll just say a few things I liked about episode 1. IT'S STUPENDOUS!
the STORY isn't well formed yet but we know there's 2 worlds: a Normal Japan, and a strange high-tech futuristic one. in the High Tech Japan a guy is executed and (I'm guessing here) members of a cell discover something. cut to a funeral procession in Normal Japan and a boy is left all alone because his father just died. a man offers to let the boy live with him. some mourners leaving the funeral home tell the audience that his entire family is now dead. cut to
his school and there's a cute girl, his cousin, who's trying to be friendly with him. his classmates don't understand him at all. later on a guy saves the boy from an attack. the episode ends there.
ART, yes there is a GREAT DEAL of CGI in this episode! but there also is some normal cel animation. everything looks great and blends perfectly!
SOUND, pretty good! I'm not all up on J-pop/Electronica but the music's pretty cool. the other effects and actors are good too.
CHARACTER, not much just yet. but what's there is INTERESTING!
I could only rate 1 part of the episode lower than perfect and that's the characters. the story grabbed my attention, but a single 16 minute episode is not enough to tell a greatly detailed story. I really REALLY like this and I hope it comes out with more episodes soon!
