the best thing about this show is that its an original universe but don't bother wasting your time, mediocre at best really a compilation of other previous animes like trigun, cowboy bebop, etc.

Story: 2/10 No real direction just a cliché adventure about finding a lost person/city to save someone/something. Full of holes and non-connecting points

Art: 6/10 the art is decent its really impossible to have bad art nowadays especially with a netflix budget, art isn't a make or break for this anime its just kind of "good enough" to sustain the visual appeal

Sound:6/10 the sound is very similar to the art read more

I decided to watch this show for the August 2019 Anime Watching Challenge because I needed to watch a fantasy anime. As an African, I always love to see black characters represented in anime and I was sold once I found out that the creator was black as well. I know that's not a great way to build a watchlist, but I had to support a brother.

Art: 8/10
The character designs are all unique, which helps if you're like me and can't remember names. I especially applaud this show for its flawless integration of 3D with 2D designs. The sparse use of 3D really served read more

Story: I thought this was pretty average, nothing special but enough too intrigue me to keep watching. That powers are cool and the world itself is actually pretty interesting. Some of the humor is gold, while other times your left thinking "huh?" Honestly the story is probably the weakest link for me, the show is held together by the cast of characters, world building, and animation. There are some episodes that don't really handle the main plot, but rather side stories, and I was much more intrigued by them.

Art: Most the fight scenes are actually pretty good. The world design is really unique and you read more

I’ll start off by saying first impressions are misleading. For this particular Anime it is a good idea not to jump to conclusions based on the first few minutes of airing. Second, whether this particular Anime is for the viewer depends on their tastes. This Anime is more likely to appeal to viewers of the following demographics.

One such demographic are viewers who enjoyed Trigun, Samurai Champloo, Cowboy Beepop and Rage of Bahamut. In fact, I suspect the American who created the source material was highly influenced by those works, yet he also pulled in a lot of Japanese cultural references such as the forty-seven read more
