Synopsis

In the land of Terra, natural disasters of unknown causes have been occurring irregularly in many areas. Therefore, the majority of the people, in order to escape those natural disasters, came to live in mobile cities developed over the years. The Originium left behind at the site of such Catastrophes, has led to the rapid progress of civilization due to their immense energy. But it also brought something else with it — an incurable disease called Oripathy.

Because the bodies of those with Oripathy gradually crystalize and become a new source of infection at the time of death, in many countries, the Infected are subject to persecution under regimes of segregation and forced labor. Those who were oppressed by the governments are starting to rebel. Rhodes Island, a pharmaceutical company researching a cure for Oripathy, takes up their arms and starts a conquest trying to save all the people from the disease.

Preliminary (3/8 eps)
It's shocking that there is a positive reception to this. The extent of content that can be drained from this bloated corpse of an animation is seeing your favorite cute girl be animated poorly.

There's an obvious shoestring budget. It's been a while since there's been an anime this clearly underfunded. It's hard to say the animation is bad, when it's barely even existent.

Voice acting is noticeably poor, especially for previously unvoiced characters. Mephisto especially misses the mark. I'm unaware as to if the casting was bad or the direction was. It would not be surprising were it ...

HONEY, I HAVE SHRUNK THE DOCTOR

Your impression of the Prelude to Dawn will largely depend on to factors: whether you are an Arknights player and how critical you are.
If you are an average Arknights player, then you'll rate it 10/10 with no respect to its flaws; and if you are above average, having critical thinking and stuff, you'll probably be able to enjoy the anime if you turn a blind eye to cliche anime moments and dubious embodiment of "the Doctor".
If you are not familiar with Arknights the game and you are not a picky anime viewer, it's a fine anime to pass a few ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (3/8 eps)
A lot of these preliminary reviews seem to be Arknights players gushing about seeing [insert character here] animated, which (as another Arknights player) I understand. That said, I want to give people unfamiliar with Arknights an honest appraisal of how things have gone so far, and what you can expect. Minor spoilers ahead.

Arknights' story has traditionally been fraught with overwrought dialogue and poor pacing, and while the anime generally improves on this there's still a lot of lengthy exposition that takes away from the rest of the narrative. It feels like whoever was storyboarding the series felt like they needed to carefully explain every concept ...
