Unusual yet enthralling in many ways
21 March 2019 | by ganymedes1985See all my reviews

You begin with a very short war scene at beginning of the millennium, and afterwards get plunged into present day New York. Here a wild Lynx and a fearless Japanese Bunny have to deal with the various crime syndicates that rule the city.

Many characters have layers of history, some will break your heart, others smash your expectations. The animation is clean and the music is understated. Action scenes balance out nicely with moments of reflection in scenic landscapes.

If it has one flaw, it's that towards the end you can't breathe between the action scenes, which make the last 4 to 6 episodes feel "crammed for time"... I felt like perhaps 30 episodes would have been a more ideal way to tell this story, but that's not how the world of showbusiness works.
