Many years have passed since humanity was driven to the brink of extinction by the sudden emergence of the unknown life forms Gadoll. Those humans that survived now dwell in a 3000m-high mobile fortress Deca-dence built to protect themselves from the Gadoll threat.

Denizens of Deca-dence fall into two categories: Gears, warriors who fight the Gadoll daily, and Tankers, those without the skills to fight. One day, Natsume, a Tanker girl who dreams of becoming a Gear meets surly Kaburagi, an armor repairman of Deca-dence.

This chance meeting between the seemingly two opposites, the girl with a positive attitude who never gives up on her dreams and the realist who has given up on his, will eventually shake the future course of this world.

preliminary review

Deca-Dence is a little different than it looks, and that's a good thing. Many people thought that the show would be another attack on titan, and sadly for people who wanted another attack on titan the show is not telling the same story we already know, despite some similar visuals and concepts (And if you watched attack on titan you know: the visual are gorgerous).

Story: 10/10

It is flowing at a good speed, not too fast, not too slow, all 4 released epsodes linked neatly to each other and we had cool twists already. And most important: we are not being being left in the read more

This anime is an absolute masterpiece. Even though the theme is of the post-apocalyptic world, it brings a fresh take on this genre.

Really good music with a great storyline.
I came here after glass reflection's recommendation and I'm glad I picked it up.
The characters are all lovely and especially the BOSS.

The show may start a little slow but just after the 2nd episode, it picks up pace.
The most important part of the show is that it feels real.

The animation is top-notch and the characters are also very funny.

I would highly recommend this anime to everyone.

(okay so now my views about this anime has changed completely)

This is THE series that everyone is sleeping on this season, I'm quite honestly surprised that it isn't getting the attention it deserves. It's probably going to be one of the most original shows to come out this season amidst a cloud of trashy unoriginal and sequel anime that has plagued the last few seasons that has honestly been boring the hell outta me. Prime examples being "Maou Gakuin no Futekigousha: Shijou Saikyou no Maou no Shiso, Tensei shite Shison-tachi no Gakkou e" that is also premiering this season, which despite its trashiness is doing a lot better in terms of community engagement which problems read more

This show is totally AWESOME.
If you can watch only one show this season, it ABSOLUTELY MUST be this one.

This is one of those shows you watch and can feel the vision and passion of the creators overflowing off the screen. It's got epic, dynamic fights and striking, gorgeous character designs, a multilayered story that builds upon itself with each episode and continues to get more engaging as it goes, and concepts that paired with their implementation into the narrative make you want to talk about them for hours on end.

This is a show it is impossible to get bored at. There's so much to take read more
