Synopsis

A project was launched where scientists discovered a mysterious substance that can interface directly with the human brain. This substance, called "Exotic Matter (XM)," has existed since ancient times, influencing human minds and the progress of humanity. In the wake of this discovery, a battle of powerful nations and corporate giants has been unleashed. Organizations across the globe have embarked on a secret race to exploit XM. It represents both an opportunity and a threat to humanity. Two Factions seeks to control the XM. The Enlightened view XM's power as a gift that enhances human experience and discovery. The Resistance sees XM as a hostile takeover of the human mind, choosing technology as humanity's best path forward. XM, and the mystery behind it lie at the center of this battle for the fate of humanity.

2018—Now, a new struggle is about to unfold in Tokyo and across the globe. Dangerous and powerful forces seeking to exploit the potential of XM will collide. This groundbreaking project will mark the beginning of an epic augmented-reality experience combining the three elements of animation, location-based gaming, and the real world.

"Now that Netflix has released two garbage-tier cop shows with supernatural elements in a row, I wonder what they gonna do next..."

Ingress the Animation is the third cop show with supernatural elements Netflix has decided to release this year, but it's not exactly as awful as the other two. I have absolute no idea who is greenlighting these, but please, stop.

Characters:

We have 3 main leads here and they are called: Jack Norman, but I will proceed to call him Jack Normal in this review because he is so Normal that even his first name is Jack. Sarah Coppola -- whose last name, indeed, is of read more

Review might contain small spoilers/references. Watched this with the Italian sub. Also never played the game this is based on, so my review judges what I've seen animated and not if it follows the source material.

This show is a mixed bag in my opinion. First, if you dislike fully CGI anime (such as Ajin) this might not be for you. All the characters are done in CGI, it's not bad, but not really good either. Sometimes the movement, especially during walking or talking feels and looks weird. Backgrounds and action scenes are nicely made, car chases care also animated nicely in CGI.

I know little to nothing about the history or production of either Ingress the Game or Ingress the Animation so my assumptions may well be off, however this anime reeks of a soulless promotion piece.

Ingress the Animation is really unique... It's rare to stumble upon something with this much raw suckage. This anime features truly horrendous CGI in a time where ugly, cheap CGI is becoming commonplace with the only anime read more

Hello there - as Danish Netflix finally decided to put Ingress onto its page, I decided to go watch it for fun.
Before starting on the review I want to note that I have played the game for a couple of years and therefore have some knowledge towards what's happening and how the game works. Even so, I went into this with low expectations and sadly the anime didn't do much to make me regret my expectation level.

On to the review:

The anime is set in an ordinary world, where a game Ingress flows around. The game contains certain portals for different factions enlightened read more
