a fun intro to the series
29 September 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I knew almost nothing about this series going into it. I had a mild idea of what the plot was, had heard the theme song before, and was aware of it being a highly praised, if somewhat divisive, anime. I don't know much about anime, but recently I've grown a slight interest in it and decided that I mine as well check out this classic. My first impression is overall quite positive as I had a lot of fun watching this quick, action packed episode. I've heard this show being described as a psychodrama, but I've also heard that it doesn't really delve into such realms for a few episodes, so as of right now it comes across as a more standard, but still very likable and hugely entertaining action/sci-fi series that is excellently animated, sometimes creative, and often surprisingly funny. I'm pretty impressed and cannot way to explore this world and these characters further.
