My first impression of the first few episodes was "well this isn't bad, its not great. Seems kinda typical, hopefully it'll get better if i continue" And boy does it get better, make sure you give this a chance because everything after episode 5 has you in constant thought. Its by far one of the best suspense and questioning shows I've seen, ever. This show was literally on my mind all day, thinking about who could be the "seventh"?! Now as the show goes, the story seems pretty typical which I believe is why so many drop this before it gets to the part that makes it worth watching. There's 6 heroes that gain a goddesses blessing(basically) for being the best fighters in the world that will all join together to kill the demon god & save humanity, BUT when all are heroes finally meet up theirs 7 of them!? And thats where the real story of this show begins, deception, suspicion, doubt, who can you trust who can't you trust? Literally every episode has you thinking "well maybe its them" and then the next episode your thinking "no it has to be them!" and so on, its one of the best shows that have completely lost me in thought like this. The artwork and animation is beautiful, everything from the character designs & the unique abilities each hero has to the amazing scenery its all very nice and you get sucked into that world. The music wasn't bad by any means, i enjoyed it all very much but it felt more like theatrical music rather than a show/anime music(like it felt a little to heavily poured on in some less intense parts than it should have been). I really liked the opening and endings, the songs were great and both changed multiple times throughout the series which was cool/nice. If your looking for something with action, cool characters(in both design & personalities), decent story and something that will wrack at your brain for literally hours then this is definitely something you want to check out!
4/5 Why? Basically my only complaint is the story seems typical by first glance, but it is still very good at doing what it set out to do. & The music seems a little to intense for some parts of the show when its not necessary(not a big deal though, it doesn't effect enjoyment at all just my opinion). The character designs are some of the coolest from any show I've ever seen, "Fremy" in particular is one of my all time favorites from any show I've seen at this point in time. If you want something thats gonna have you doubting yourself and thinking for hours after you finished the episode this is something you have got to check out and give a chance for it to get to that point, don't give up on it cause its "to slow feeling" in the beginning.
