Ah, Kenji Kamiyama. Your work since GitS:SAC season 1 has yet to fail to disappoint me.

Blade Runner: Black Lotus is the latest Kamiyama-directed title I have reviewed here on MyAnimeList, following Eden of the East, GitS:SAC 2nd GIG, and GitS:SAC – SSS in exactly that order. At the end of my Solid State Society review, I said I would make the smarter decision and avoid GitS:SAC_2045 based purely on my past experience with the directors’ work.

This is a grueling watch and I would not recommend it since it as slow and uninteresting as watching paint dry. I wish this didn't exist. However ...
