What starts off brilliant descends into “Where do we go with it?” half way through the show, leaving an unsatisfying conclusion.
Darker and edgier reboot. ➕ Design, voices, atmosphere. ➖ Story, motivations, “traditional” take on mortality vs immortality.
An appealing premise in my case, but the show just drags. Better execution, could have made it into a modern classic.
This looked very pretty but honestly a lot of it went over my head. It was great at putting me into a certain mood though. Props for that.
One of the first HD anime I saw. Good story but really great art. Was a treat to see on my TV.
Came off as edgy garbage. I wonder if older versions did better. Lots of ep 1 exposition so we don’t forget who Cashern is. 1 and drop.
A weak overarching plot and a fair amount of schmaltz are outweighed by the bold art and unique style of action in this episodic trek.
