    It is worth watching the first episode
    I've only seen the first episode, but it's pretty good. The voice acting is English, and surprisingly, the voices are more than just bearable to listen to. They even got REAL child voice actors (or maybe just adults who are incredibly good at voicing children).

    The episode itself was interesting. At first, it was a jarring - the scenes were changing too fast and it felt like the anime needed a ...

    Simply astonishing!!
    While the story is convoluted, the artwork is fantastic! A homage to older styled Anime while looking fresh and clean. AND FROM THE CREATOR OF THE BOONDOCKS! What more is there to say?! From his past works though you know the story is going to be amazing! I just hope more is to come because I can't miss this one. I refuse to miss this one!

    The character designs are cool
    And the animation is alright, but everything else, not so much. The voice acting was particularly grating, especially when it came to the kids. Maybe it will get better as it continues and I'll have to change my rating, but for now I am not eager to see anymore.

    Decent first attempt, needs some work
    Animation is okay, but the angles they use really highlight the bad lip syncing.

    Character designs (esp of the mechanical eye guy) are EXTREMELY overdesigned. He doesn't need 4 unique identifiers (eye, face tatoo, mechanical arm, etc). Pick 2.

    Voice acting needs to be redone. Varies from tolerable to horrid.

  • Based on 1st Episode
    The animation may trigger people as it seems "weird", but that is not an issue if you are use to the Boondocks and Black Dynamite, shoot even Afro Samurai.

    The character design is actually nice. They are well drawn, and the voicing, even if in English, is not awful. Best of all, the Spanish in this anime is not butchered (Gracias a Dios/Thank God).

    The voice acting may also trigger people, ...

  • Short but entertaining
    The first episode is short (under fifteen minutes). The show is definitely has more of a western animation feel but that isn't anything bad. It feels as it has some inspiration from boondock saints and legend of Korra. Whether the series will become something more we will have to wait and see. As more episodes come up I will update this review. For now I definitely recommend giving the first ...

    Looks promising...if you can tolerate it in English...
    The voice acting in this isn't bad even though it's English (which normally is terrible). However, I absolutely hate watching anime with English voice actors...it just ruins it for me.

    That said...this does look interesting. I watched the first episode and I really did enjoy the art style. Some of the characters feel pretty bland but others are somewhat interesting so far. I don't ...

    Definitely worth watching.
    A brown female protagonist of an Anime! thank you LeSean Thomas. In case you don't know LeSean Thomas is a character designer who has worked on Boondocks and Black dynamite among many other shows. He is working with crunchyroll to create this show.

    This review only pertains to the first episode and has no spoilers. The episode held my interest from beginning to end and I found myself ...

  • a very interesting project
    Part of Lesean Thomas world anime project children of ether has kinetic action and incredible character design. I wish it had more bright colors rather than the drabness of the post apocalyptic waste lands that we've seen . The world always needs more brightness especially in the darkest times the score is superb too. needs to expand a bit in the world building but and incredible effort. i ...

  • Deserves a chance to shine
    Voice acting is iffy in the first train scene, but smooths out over the episode, even with the kids. Animation is smooth during action and calm moments. However little was established in terms of plot, characters, or world, but it still looks promising enough in terms of production value to warrant giving a chance.
