In the near future, technology has made a few leaps and bounds, and videophones and constant wireless internet access are available to everyone.

Preliminary (5/24 eps)
As a girl - I love this. If you give this a different rating than 10/10 you are objectively wrong and you should never ever try to consume Japanese media because this is a piece of art.

first of all, the opening is just the fucking best. the music slaps, and the characters are lovely, so what if it's a bad CGI? fucking Berserk 2017 looked worse than this.

the storyline is a bit bland, I might have to admit that. but there's a valid reason behind that: if the story was more difficult, your rotting brain wouldn't be able to appreciate the beautiful art of ...

Each episode is technically 6 minutes long, but the actual episode content is only 3 minutes once you subtract the opening and ending. Within those 3 minutes is batshit insanity.

If you know how much I hate ...
