Typical over-dramatic anime
29 March 2018 | by GrangerSee all my reviews

What starts out and maintains as a highly-interesting anime, devolves in the last 15 minutes to typical anime over-dramatic cliche. The concept is fantastic-- ten super-powers all vying for an all-powerful prize. It contains story, plot, relationships, heroism, intrigue, mystery... and then plop, drops it all in a typical bucket of soliloquy self-indulgence. It leads well into the series and explains some things, but for a significant amount of time near the end I found myself yawning and wondering if they were every going to get on with things and conclude the story. We see this mechanism all too often in such presentations-- throwing all they've built up to that point out the window for excessive drama and angst. Typical and disappointing-- a fatal flaw in an otherwise brilliant story.
