Incredible Eyecandy Paired With a Meh Story
18 March 2019 | by jeramygitzelSee all my reviews

Right off the bat, this show feels like it's trying too hard. It has very beautiful animation, but the story is just so damn cliche. Even with their own little spin on the protagonist, the story felt like something I have heard and seen a thousand times already. It feels really forced and edgy which leaves the whole thing feeling too unrealistic, contrasting the lifelike animation. Now, one thing that this show did extremely well is symbolism. There is one scene in particular that was so obvious but still worked very well, and it was even given more meaning later on in the story. The big twist was pretty predictable, like a halfhearted Black Mirror twist. Overall, might watch more for the good animation if I have time, otherwise not going to watch more.
