Confusing. It feels like the episode dropped me in the middle of the story with a lot of mechanics that will probably get explained later on.


Actually, I kinda like that... I much prefer "let's go, I'll explain along the way" to "stand there while I spend half an hour infodumping". The former is harder to write and hasrfder for the viewer to grasp though.

Anyhow, I like the feel of the show, definitely sticking around to see what happens next.

Metabon .

So it's a futuristic setting and it appears that beings from other worlds/plains of existence have come together. Some people are gifted with powers and use devices to enhance them (based off the armor/weapons the two had on the train). Drivers I think - the ball device. People want to find the Divine Gate to get their wish granted. The little boy that keeps showing up might be the Gate itself? That or a messenger of sorts.

That's the basis I took away. They didn't give everything away, but gave enough to go on.

Episode 1

That was partly confusing and partly depressing, but I kind of enjoyed it. Gonna give it some time and see where it goes from here.

It didn't really feel special at all, but it also wasn't bad. I really liked the art style, particularly the colouring. Not a guaranteed winner by any means but definitely one I'll at least come back for over the next few episodes.

Actually, I liked this one a good bit. Almost stopped watching with that beginning narration (sounded right out of some emo kid's diary), but it got better.

Really like what we saw of the dynamics of the different worlds and the various powers. Apparently humans need tech to keep up with fairies and demons, which is appropriate given technology (and stupid amounts of adaptability and endurance) are what gives humans the edge in the real world.

Being someone who starts fanboying when demons or fairies appear, I was happy to see both. Now just to see what variety they are. The fairies seem sort of benign so far, though the fire teacher has a sort of djinn look going on. And there's obviously tensions and prejudices between humans, fairies, and demons.

Despite the fact that it's the most cliche thing ever with elemental powers, I do like that the character's personalities match their element to some extent. Points for water guy having blue eyes instead of blue hair.

I'm feeling a lot of Z / X Ignition here, honestly.

If anything I think this will turn out to be my "Turn my brain off and enjoy the crazy fights" anime of the season. There weren't any yet but they're def comin soon for sure. I enjoyed the first episode. Think it tried a bit hard to be dark but interested to see where it goes.

Episode 1

Best first episode this season. The blond dude is so awesome to me and the setting leaves enough intrigue for me to want to watch more. They showed his past and why he is what he is and there is an actual goal in recruiting him. The metaphors and subtly thrown out here and there is also really nice. The others characters seem fine, but i'm more focused on the MC's past and development. The only issue i would say was that it jumped around and got a bit slow in the middle, but still a great start.

Episode 2

The story still feels all over the place.

They did manage to help out a kid and is Father. Good action there. At the same time, we find out more about Aoto and this tragic past. I think throughout the show, we'll also learn his motives. For now, still a dull show. I'm more curious about the stuff going on from behind the scenes as there seems to be something big building up...

They really plan to discover the secrets of the Divine Gate. I'm guessing that's a main part of the story now.

Episode 2

While things are all over the place here, it does get its point down in this episode where when it comes to fathers, situations are different and that consciousness and subconsciousness can clash leading to some pretty bad things happening. Such is the case with that father when he was attacked and he was trying to save his son, but was stopped in place. While this show continues to be dull, at the very least it has a solid foundation going forward in putting Aoto's character into focus.

Episode 2

The power of sub and consciousness!

Definitely a lot of character conflict going on, but to add to that, the powers are cool if you don't let the CG bother you. They finally got the key, so let's see where they head with that!

Ready for more!

Episode 2

CGI fights...still not enough reason for me to drop just yet.

Aoto's brother murdering his parents reminded me of Sasuke and Itachi.

Meh,not holding my interest at all.
