Let down by this
20 October 2018 | by Kolir_ApuSee all my reviews

. Not everybody has to agree with me. This series had promise, but failed ultimately in its conclusion. Which was weak at best. Dialogues...I found it wanting for the most part. In spite of its good story build up, I found this anime wasted a lot of time on over-dramatic shots of characters emoting over and over. The theme of the story is thought provoking, about humankind destroying earth with our carelessness. But the ending is carelessly put forward (which I found predictable), it needed a lot more thought to wrap it up. I had hopes, but was sadly disappointed. Princess Mononoke or Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind handled similar themes more maturely; despite not being 'mature' rated. It is strictly my personal opinion. You may like it, try it out.
