Good Show Cool Plot Bad Character Development
30 April 2015 | by See all my reviews

Actual Score: 7.3/10 First Lets Talk about the plot the plot was actually really quite good and a bit different.The Plot Goes A Bit like This The Main Charter How is in control of a enemy AI ship and defeats other ships know as the flog that also are AI. The the ship all start to fall for the main character forming a ship harem.This plot is a little bit cringe but still quite good. Plot 7.7/10 Now Lets talk about The Animation The Animation was Good But Nothing Special. Animation:7.4/10 Now The sound. The Voice Actors we Good. There Is No Dub. The Sound Track Is Really Good. Sound 7.5/10 Now Lets Get To Th Bad Part Of The show The Character Development.Now Where This Show Truly Fails Is In Its Character development It Feels Like The Characters get Nowhere by the end Of The show And They fell Like they Don't really have Any emotions which i fell Makes the Show Boring And Empty.Take this For Example The Main Characters Are in A Big Battle where they could lose there lives and they not scared or worried and they don't seem to care about each other at all. Character development: 7/10 Finally The Story: yes It has A good Plot and Story Line But The Story Doesn't Go In To Detail About the Charterers or how they got to where they are now or even really why the fog is there its just a bit empty and dull. One Example of This Is in The first Ep where It shows us Where the main character and submarine-401 meet But it Doesn't Finish that part of the story a all. Story: 7.3/10 Overall: 7.3/10
