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

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

I don't even know how to describe my feelings towards Cannon Busters. On a surface level, I'd describe it as One Punch Man meets Trigun with stylistic elements of Devilman Crybaby, but I think there's a lot more to say about it than just that.

Story - 9

While one may look at the synopsis of the plot and write off Cannon Busters as another above-average Netflix original that's been shat out out to appease anime fans that use the platform, the way the show is written is actually genius in how it changes tones a goofy and light hearted almost-parody to rather serious and emotionally charged read more
