Cannon Busters is not your typical anime, it combines elements from Western films, the fantasy genre, and a mix of futuristic and dystopic sci-fi elements into one. It's messy but for a setting that's so much fun, there really isn't much to question as you go along for the ride that is this whole first season of the show.

To get the bad out of the way, the story is pretty simple and nothing to write home about, it's the side characters and stories along the way that really prop it up. To be frank, the main story is kinda meh in comparison, but it serves ...

Do you know the feeling? That you have these actually good shows lined up, but you also have a headache, not enough sleep for a few nights and you feel that it would be a waste to see something good on a day when you're not really primed to enjoy it?

This show originally hooked me because of the dynamite into song, but man that is the only good thing about it

the show feels like a crappy nickelodeon cartoon that tried at some points to be edgy and dark but just misses the mark in every way

the characters are dull and annoying and seem extremely childish for the post apocalyptic world that they have been born into.

Everything in the show is extremely predictable! every plot twist character arc episode rescue all of it

I would avoid watching this anime at all costs because there are far better options out there
