Having of a "batman-ish" feel to it at first Big O is one anime that you'll want to watch...and quickly put down, forever. The story is interesting in the beginning having an unique concept, good characters, and an odd but intriguing setting. Interesting no? No. It quickly goes south, leaving a bitter after taste as the show progresses. Completely going in a different direction than what the previous episodes (you know the ones that made us actually like this anime) had led us to believe. From Bizaar moments to ones that make you go "wtf?" this show has taken a potentially amazing anime and destroyed it. I'll stop my rant now and tell you my final thoughts on the show. Although Big O had a terrible story outcome, it did however have good characters, great artwork, and a pretty damn good soundtrack.
I do recommend you watch the firsts 13 episodes, then stop and never look back.
