A lot of wasted potential
10 July 2020 | by rednblackkitkatSee all my reviews

The way this series handles the human reaction to natural catastrophes is quite unrealistic. Most of the action happens in the first episode and the way the characters deal with the situation from that moment is just disappointing. The animation style is nothing special, the characters seem promising at first but they don't develop at all throughout the story. The little brother is utterly ridiculous and annoying. The series is tiring to watch. This could have been a great anime and we were looking forward to it, the trailers were promising. Instead, we got a good start and an ok ending with a pile of junk in between. We expected a thrilling story about loss, survival and hope and were awarded with an entirely random plot, flat characters, plot holes and a jolly family taking souvenir pictures as there wasn't an apocalypse going on.
