I'm sure you've heard the expression never judge a book by it's cover, but that's what I intended to do when I first glanced at this anime on Netflix. From the screenshots alone I thought I wouldn't enjoy the animation and art style and was going to skip watching this, but I decided I had enough free time and started episode one. Next thing I knew, I was hooked.

The story starts off slow in the beginning, so you have to be willing to wait a few episodes in before it begins to get interesting.

Mixed Feelings
First impressions are crucial to how we make decisions. It’s therefore no secret as to why many will choose to avoid watching this show. It’s true that it leaves a lot to be desired visually, but there are positives underneath its rather unattractive surface.

Set in a barren post-apocalyptic future where most of the population has transformed into giant CGI monstrosities in the form of insects. The remaining population struggle to survive in fortified, self-governed cities.

Story: Just another Epidemic apocalyptic cliche story, cities trying to survive because a mysterious disease affected humanity, while there's an edgy main character and another main character that loves the first one, who is shrouded my a mysterious past related to the disease. 5/10

Art: The famous Netflix CGI, even tho not the worse CGI out there, still terrible. 3/10

Sound: Fairly good, probably the thing I most enjoyed, good sound track. 7/10

Characters: They are just pretty much lifeless, bad animation, cliche and mostly annoying. The only character that made me give two points instead of a round 0 is Maria. Oh, points for not having overly ...
