Surprisingly good
28 December 2019 | by bloodyhanaSee all my reviews

I had known going in that this was going to be a slow burner so i thought I probably wouldn't make it through series since I get bored easily....but I was super wrong thank goodness and the world building and characters hooked me into the show! At the time I watched it there were only 4 or 5 episodes out and I binged them all. I'm glad that this show actually took the time to build character relationships so that I cared. I wish a lot more anime did this with their characters. The animation isn't anything to write home about but that kind of took a backseat compared to the plot for me.
