Split feelings
14 February 2020 | by SnootzSee all my reviews

While the anime itself is excellent and the graphic design superior, the entire two seasons seems to be an extremely repetitious theme: attacked by space monsters, killed by space monsters, destroy the space monsters, over and over.

The characters are reasonably interesting but very cliche... and as with many anime the most socially and romantically inept creatures in the universe.

It kept my attention, but near the end (last 3 or 4 episodes) I found myself getting bored by the repetitious theme and very repetitive fight sequences.

The biggest problem is only 2 seasons in an anime obviously intended for more. So while the story does have a climax and conclusion, there is a LOT left hanging at the end, a whole bag of character resolutions left unresolved, a bunch of thematic elements that never have the strings tied. The repetitious nature of the theme and the premature ending at the end of the second season knocks it down in stars for me. There is nothing like watching a lengthy series only to discover it incomplete and unfulfilling. That said, it was considerably more interesting than Evangelion (which in my opinion is one of the most highly over-rated and hyped anime series of all time).
