Looks like I have to change my opinion about this anime.
First, let me say this. I did not like the first episode. At all. It explains nothing. It gives no introduction to the characters. Battle scenes are unentertaining. Everything is aimed at girly moe fans, with no other merit except for CG art and graphics.
That said, the 2nd episode takes a complete turnaround in terms of explaining more of the story, direction, and the background behind the main characters, and includes some plot twists to the previous setting. Its almost as if a different director took over the
project and rescued what was already started..although I'm sure that isn't so, since I can only find one director...but I digress.
Anyway, the story and characters are a little more satisfying. They still doesn't explain a whole lot, and there's too many questions raised as to why this is all happening, or what's motivating some of the characters,, but its not as distracting as in the previous episode. Artwork in the 2nd episode is even more impressive than the first. I felt like I was drawn into another world. Sound isn't as annoying as before, and fits the mood rather well, in that everything isn't as it seems. And with the twists in story and the more entertaining fight scenes, its more user friendly to a broader audience.
I definitely enjoyed the 2nd episode a lot more. I would recommend skipping the 1st episode entirely, and maybe reading a summary for it instead, but that's asking a bit too much, right? If you end up watching it anyway and hating it like I did, don't say that I didn't warn you.
1st Episode: 2/10
2nd Episode: 7/10
