No other reviews? Okay, I'll write one then.

Platonic Chain is essentially a look at the many different possibilities about how personal information (Such as video records of EVERYWHERE you've been for the last few years, voice recordings, personality profiles, and more) could be used if it was accessible to the public, though this series is a light one, and the uses it shows are all relatively harmless.

It really is an interesting idea, and there are some really creative, even amusing uses on display, though I won't spoil them.

I like the characters and the story really has potential but the episodes are far too short, the outro is almost always longer than the whole episode and the animation is as if you were watching a PS2 cutscene, however it does have a certain cyber core shibuya aesthetic that I can see people be drawn to. Platonic chain is nice to watch if you have a few minutes to spare but beware of some rather triggering themes such read more
