Unbelievably rushed. I swear to god the only thing that is worth it in this anime is the intro. The story was at least mediocre, but its execution was awful.

The art is below average and the CGI is horrible, the monsters look absolutely stupid.

I've no comment about the soundtracks, everything except the intro was generic and boring to listen to.

Character wise, it really is just wasted potential until now, if they want to kill off important characters it would be good if they had some character development first, otherwise the viewer is never going to care about these "dramatic" deaths.

Okay, so I have played through the entire game and decided to drop the anime after the 4th episode. Spoiler free review ahead:

Short answer: Just play the game, it's the exact same story but the art, music, combat is better in the game.

Long answer:

I was excited for this anime because the game looked really fun, I bought the game day 1 and played through the entire thing immediately. The game isn't TOO hard and it isn't that grindy for an RPG either. The anime itself feels lazy (for Sunrise standards), and poorly implemented. For an anime based off a game with really hype fights, this read more

Review as of Ep 4

Scarlet Nexus is an anime based on a game, I haven't played the game and this review is entirely based on what I have seen from the anime.

Starting off on the positive of this anime is that the intro is very nice and it had me banging my head to it every time I watched an episode.

Sound 9

Art style is fairly basic in my opinion with it not read more

Normally I don't give scores to my dropped animes since it's not fair to give a score to something that you haven't finished but this is an exception. I've only seen the first 4 episodes but I've played the game so this review will be in relation to the game.

I won't say much to the story since I haven't actually finished Kasane's story and I haven't done Yuito's story. I'll just say that it's actually pretty interesting as the story progresses though it does feel a bit rushed.

Art-wise, it's very mid; probably less than, actually. During the hand-animated scenes, it's enough for me to read more
