Great anime
11 January 2020 | by reddice26See all my reviews

Even though I am not familiar with the source material, I decided to watch this anime. The first couple of episodes, I felt were ok-ish. What I did not realize is that this was setting up the story for the second half of the series, which is where the show really shines. It is then that it becomes immensely brutal and uses the background of the first episodes to build on. Blood and gore go hand in hand with the drama that unfolds in front of your eyes. I was shocked to see just how brutal it becomes and had to fight against the tears on some moments. If you're looking for a feel-good anime, this is not for you.

If there is one bad thing I can say about this show, it is that it's too short. With 1 or 2 episodes more, they could have clarified some background stories and made the final battle more intense. The ending is thought provoking (in fact much more than neon genesis), but if a bit more time had been invested, it would have gone into the history books as a classic for sure.

One of the best animes on Netflix and highly recommended.
