And someone needs to do their research. A place run by machines isn't going to have a water sprinkler fire supression system. It's most likely going to have something based on CO or another gas so that you can put the fire out and don't have to worry about messing up the electronics. It's what they use for really expensive computer rooms (super computers, etc) in real life.


Unless the electronics are waterproof. Which would make sense. How do you plan to take over a planet that is 3/4 water if you're vulnerable to water? (Ever see Signs?) And since they obviously wanted to keep her alive to "interview" dumping CO or halon or some other gas would have killed her.

I do understand the sense that the story is disjointed but with each episode I feel there are pieces to the puzzle dropped in place. It's just that as they're solving part of the puzzle they open up new sections at the same time. Personally I'm enjoying the show enough to stick with it and see where it leads. And even if the plot falls flat the CG animation is quite amazing. A huge step above RWBY and a smaller step over Blue Steel. As CG keeps improving I expect we'll see more anime made this way, for good or ill.


Eh, suppose that works.
The sprinklers in a computer area just make me twitch and seem thematically inappropriate.

I like the RWBY cg better than this. I like Reboot cg better than this. Jack drinking clone lady at least blocked the bullets with a shield, which is an improvement over not-dodging them that Karen does. The action scenes just look like a mess to me.
I can deal with disjointed and mysteries being slowly revealed. One of my favorite anime is Baccano, which is definitely disjointed. Abrupt is more the word for the problem I have with this show and the story delivery.

At first this bothered me as well until the "boss" robot made it clear he wanted Karen captured alive. They aren't shooting to kill. It's more like trying to corral her. Which in my mind elevates them well above the "Stormtrooper" shooters to top marksmen for being able to gun on the run and consistently not hit her.

I'm heavily reading into things here but Karen may on some level be aware they aren't trying to kill her so doesn't try to dodge the bullets so much as work to evade capture.

That I won't complain about. The animation is the problem. It doesn't look like they are missing her or she's dodging, it looks like the bullets should be hitting her but aren't because that's not in the script. The slowmo should fix that, but it only makes it worse.

EP # 3 TRAP

You may think I am crazy but this is turning out to be one of my favorite fall animes! It' just so cool ,griity lots of action , a actually a good story going on! It' going to be in my Top 5 this week. So happy having Psycho Pass too!

BTW the animation looked bettter in this episode but I can live withe the CG. Hey an anime could be visually stunning but with no punch or good story I may not watch!

First some cool things in this EP Any heroine (Eleanor that drinks ( Jack Daniels ) yea that name David Smith / Jennesee Whiskey / then whips out a triple Gatling Gun gets my vote. BTW she cant die she can reproduce herself!

IDK if I trust Xiao-gang after the confrontation with Karen then sends her off to disable the coom servers and is ambushed and captured

Dat intervirew room with all the camera eyes watching Karen BTW it was cool she got a meal but not without chaos. She was polite and left a thank-you note after the room got thrashed!

The whole thing about love was interesting! Karen diidnt need weapons Touka was one bad terror!

And the music was good and fit perfectly. Dat blues that was playing was right on like a prision song ! See the anime just has all these liitle touches!

Ep 4

Still liking this more than I should. The butcher reminds me of that alien in MIB lol.

That action chase scene was pretty nice, got that hectic intense feeling down.

The plot still feels like "reveal one thing, introduce two more". Hopefully they can bring it together satisfactorily. But even if it isn't I'm still enjoying watching. The action scenes are top-notch and the CG animation is very bright and eye-catching as well as smoother than I've seen in other CG only shows.

Definitely got the music to fit the scenes.

If I had any complaints with the anime, it's something prevalent in the whole entertainment business: directors need to start realizing your eyes don't bounce when you're running in 1st-person mode. It doesn't make me motion sick, but it's just dumb shit.

And a new hero emerges, The Butcher!. Don't click if you don't like ear-splitting thrash but that was the first thing that came to mind. The second was a mini version of Doctor Frankfurter

Ep 5

Clone girl's english was pretty good. And I wasn't expecting Karen to actually stab that assassin in the hand. Usually it just ends with knife into the ground near their head and then a KO punch but never a stab.

Seriously, aside from a few hiccups, it was really damn good! Why couldn't they get her seiyuu to voice Five in Terror in Resonance?

Ep 6

Okay, this episode had way too much going on with way too abrupt transitions. 11 minutes per episode is not enough. Even 24 would've been pushing it but at least it would be slightly better to take in.

3-4 plot lines, damn it, slow down!

Touka being a ghost energy thing that can fight is still pretty cool.
