    "In The Darkness" is right
    The summery gave a a bit of a dark expectation but for the hero its even more traumatic to lose a friend at such an early age. So is it weird and cowardly to cling to a strange goal of proving that aliens exist? Or is it bold and ambitious? Either way this darker story of the season is pretty gripping and it keeps up its rather dark and foreboding theme. Astronomy is an interesting topic and this ...

    don't watch this :((
    manga was really good, but the anime was way too rushed and bad compared to the manga. idk how they jammed 100 chapters into 12 episodes but okay lol
    you're better off reading the manga though tbh
    they skipped a bunch of arcs which were important for character development
    this doesnt do the manga justice

    Started out great, but became predictable and cheesy and characters trust one another too easily
    Episode 1: very interesting. no annoying characters so far. characters are like-able. story is interesting. great dialogues. very engaging. hope it keeps this quality and doesn't roam into the... cheesy everyday high school life... such as... the main girl suddenly starts making sandwiches for the main guy sort of thing.

    Episode 2: Shit starts to get real. Evil government/mad scientists and ...

    Just stick to the manga...
    I loved the intros, especially the first one. It seems like they didn't expect this anime to be popular since they did the entire manga in one go, even though it's still going. If there is another season it won't be for a very long time. They skipped a huge chunk of the anime which would have made a decent first season, or first half for a 24 episode series. They toned down Valkyria way too much. ...

    I feel a lot of people don't understand just how dark this story is...
    I feel the anime opening isn't quite appropriate for how dark the story truly is. Go read, actually no, just go look at the first page, of the first chapter of the manga and you'll understand why. It does have a bit of repetition and such, but, what is any story but a change on a previously told story. Still so, It is definitely is one of the darker stories out there. I think its best point is ...

    Decent for the first half but...
    IF YOU THOUGHT HATING WHITE MIST WAS IMPOSSIBLE..... THINK AGAIN!

    Ok, I am ganna get strait to the point with this series. The first 10/11 EPs had some good qualities to them, including a strong manga for source material. However, making this a 13 episode series was a huge mistake with the amount of material that was skipped and condensed this show totally falls apart in the last 2 EPs. ...

    Shaky start leaves room for potential, but throws it away like trash.
    This is a brief of my thoughts about the first episode.

    Let me start by saying that this anime has Mad Potential!
    A very Elfen lied esque vibe right from the start with a bunch of action, twists and turns already in episode 1. Very entertaining indeed, but for some reason i felt like it was mercilessly rushing through the plot. Perhaps it is because i already know the story or perhaps ...

    Worthy of a follow on season
    I am vastly getting bored of the harem style anime that seems to be the most popular these days because of the typical perry nature of them but this show stands out as something a cut above most. It is refreshing to see an intelligent male character for a change and that the female characters are not constantly subjected to upskirt panty and ass shots. The show actually focussed on the ...

    Unexpected Hidden Gem
    The descriptions of this show don't do it justice, and the name seems a bit strange as well. The story concept is mysterious and unusual making it a compelling show. I wish there was a second season and I don't say that very often. I suspect if you like SAO you'll find this show interesting even though it is a dissimilar story concept.
