Highly recommended dystopian future / telekinesis story
16 January 2014 | by (Vancouver, BC) – See all my reviews

This dystopian future (1000 years from now) reveals exciting, terrifying, and tragic elements VERY consistently. Your jaw might drop at how humanity deals with its gaining of telekinesis, AKA "Power". The story follows Saki, and over decades with her, we learn the fragile state of humanity and their new neighbors, the Monster Rats. Though all main characters are likable, none are safe from monsters, government, or each other. Everyone is compelling & motivated. All episodes build to a satisfying conclusion. Even after the climax, the show gives your gut one last twist before saying goodbye. The budget doesn't allow for superb animation; but the use of character design, color, and backgrounds keep things looking good (better art would = 9/10). Regardless, the story and acting are PLENTY strong enough to carry things along. Definitely see this if you want a short, thoughtful, clear, contained series on the dangers of power, the pain of violence, and our ability to love despite these things. 8/10!
