Netflix heard the silent cries of no less than 0 people to make a new CGI anime, but thankfully it turned out pretty decent in my opinion. Not the CGI though. It’s a nightmarish display of the show’s low budget and most will look at it with disgust. But the pleasantry of not having watched worse is not true for me. What I’ve seen from the early 2000’s is enough to make the CGI in this show look rather good in comparison. With other words Cagaster of an Insect Cage could’ve been so much worse in terms of visuals.

But what’s the show about? read more

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.

The fight scenes, between the bugs and humans aren't as read more

This is my first review, so it might be a bit flawed, but we all gotta start somewhere I guess. Here we go:

Mushikago no Cagaster, or Cagaster of an Insect Cage is a Netflix original, and takes place in a post apocalyptic world, where humans are facing extincion after a disease (or something idk) turns some humans into massive, human killing insects. And we watch as Kidou, an executioner who's job is to deal with infected people, and Ilie, a girl that kidou saves and promises to take to her mother, the story then goes on, and we get more dept into these characters, read more
