This story was a classic Priest novel type, but with an interesting modern twist. I'm invested! I want to know what happens next and get more into the details of the past of the two main characters and how they're connected.

The animation is quite nice for CG, and the faces are stylized in a unique way. The backgrounds are beautiful.

Good! Well fit, nice OP/ED.

Mixed Feelings
Drowning Sorrows in Raging Fire, one of the latest Chinese anime licensed in the West by Funimation, is a mixed bag of a show. A very mixed bag.

Firstly the story. I'm not gonna summarise it here, you can read the synopsis yourself. What I would say, is that the first two or so episodes are superb as far as story goes. It's thrilling, engaging and very interesting and novel. Characterisation is good and the scene is set very well. Then, it goes meh. Very meh. It turns into a standard generational revenge story and the characterisation stops there. Not much can be said otherwise. ...
