Introduction was nicely told through narration.

Conclusion made scene for it referred back to the introduction.

I was not please that their was little in terms of background on the main male character's origin.

-black and white

-Not only was introduction art drawn nicely as in not too bright or too dark but had a nice symbolic affect. For when watches an anime they are really watching a visual story. Thus quite symbolical and a creative idea.

-There were some loops of recycled art. I can allow that to some regard for it does save time in showing certain moments of life that practically repeat them selves. read more
