    Dies Irae- "Day of Wrath", and it is indeed.
    Dies Irae is followed by “Verweile doch, du bist so schön” – “Ah, linger on, thou art so fair!” and "at the center of the picture a young woman"-"das ewig Weibliche" The first is an evocation of Mephistopheles from Faust, the second the chorus:

    Mephistopheles. Done!
    Faust. Another hand-clasp! There!
    If to the moment I shall ever say:
    "Ah, linger on, thou art so fair!"
    Then may you ...

    Completely incoherent so far...
    Is there a plot? I don't know. This episode seems to exist just to introduce you to the setting and to as many characters as they could cram in. Unfortunately, the result is that I couldn't tell you a single name out of the dozen or so (apparently) important characters you are hurriedly introduced to, and I couldn't care less about any of them - possibly because they all seem to be villains...? ...

    I'm at a loss for words.
    Most people give anime 2-3 episodes in if the opening gave them a little hook or something. This anime basically doesn't do anything that would want to make me keep watching. Unless your entertained by "what the f- did I just watch" but not in a gross or disgusted way, then it seems like this is one to skip. It's so bad how they made this first episode so hard to understand and grasp what time ...

    Diesirae review of episode 0
    I really liked the art and some of the concepts of Diesirae ,but that kind of where the complements stop. I was confused with too many character introductions at the beginning. I didn't really get the plot yet and that is kind of important when you're introducing an anime. The opening might be explaining a back story ,but it doesn't really grab you're attention right off the back. It would have ...

    Worse than the Dresden Firebombings
    I don't think I've ever dropped a show faster than this. Sure, the art looks nice in some parts, but complete lack of cohesion sinks it. The plot is so loose you could use the thread to make the Hugo Boss uniforms on display, none of the characters are compelling, and the constant exposition dumps mean you just can't wait for the NotZis to die off.

    The music isn't bad, but it's wasted on fight ...

    This is a trailer of the series
    This episode 0..... just setting the scene, could be cool.

    animation is a 6
    Character art is like a 7
    action is about 6
    potential is hitting 8

    I think often we anime watchers are too quick to judge... I'm thinking three episodes is the trustworthy length of time for comprehensive review.

    To the guy complaining about the low star reviews....
    Here's the deal... This thing is awful.
    Just terrible, nonsensical chaos that has no semblance of a good story. It's not even dumb fun, it's just dumb. It's all fan fair, lights and flashes with no substance, and yet we have some people giving it 5 star reviews because they can't handle people judging this thing for its mediocrity.
    This is just really bad, and as someone that has watched anime ...

    WTF is this? watch at your own risk
    So much hype for nothing. The way they introduce this anime was extremely confusing, how you suppose to understand what is going on when all you see is random encounters and characters that you don't even know yet are just fighting in the background doing silly stuff.

    It's Episode ZERO, don't make judgments yet
    Using this to counteract all of the people who are rating this low because episode 0 doesn't make sense. My dudes, it's not supposed to. It's an episode designed for people who are already fans of the VN to get hyped for the anime. They'll catch the rest of us up during episode one. Or better yet, the VN is free on Steam (at least the first part anyway), and I got all caught up on what episode 0 ...

  • Good set up so far. Looks promising
    Currently there is only a series trailer out, but I don't see why so many people are giving this one star. Obviously there isn't going to be a lot of major plot happening yet.
    For a first episode, i think it looks very promising. The art and animation at the beginning are beautiful, and the story set up seems interesting. I plan on continuing to watch the series, and I recommend that others give ...
