    A new anime that has potential
    At first glance, the plot seemed odd and different, but then by the second episode, things fell into place. It cleared up a lot of the, why is this like this or how come those things are doing this, etc., etc.. The groundwork has been laid with great action sequences, which have implied that they are only going to get a lot more action packed and suspenseful. The plot is starting to come together ...

    I gave it 10 episodes
    Where I'm coming from: I like Anime for 1) Animation and 2) Characters. Art, backgrounds, OST, they're important, but secondary.
    This show failed on my 2 most important qualities that I WATCH Anime for. 1) The Animation is only decent for about 5-10 minutes in only 3 episodes. If your not going to animate an anime, I could read it as book. 2) Strong Character Design and dialogue? Nope, ...

    Great Super Natural / Martial Arts anime.
    This is more of a martial arts anime than a zombie anime.
    I watched first 9 episodes in one binge afternoon. And am now hanging in suspense waiting for episode 10.
    Some reviewers say its slow at start, and I can see how they say that, but its totally worth it as things really heat up by end of episode 2.
    I love the way they change between realistic and super emotive faces.
    So say no to the ...

    An underestimated anime
    With the bad rating I was expecting a bad anime but it is not.
    First of all: no this is NOT a zombie anime, it is not writing it is. It's just that the synopsis said that the protagonist is attacked by zombie, but it's actually just the special power of one of the characters, no more. So judging this anime as bad because it didn't fill the expectation of being what it is not, is just stupid,
    I ...

    Slow burn that is worth your time
    This is really good. Just a slow burn that is worth your time. It is one of those series that is full of feels and action. I have to admit I did not like episode one but after watching more than that I grew to like this show a lot and I hope we get another 12 episodes.

    Fun to watch, an excellent martial arts series
    I can see why some lost interest in a few episodes, the plot and the characters a slow to develop. Now in the 9th episode, it is a quite entertaining series. It just keeps getting better. The relationships are fleshed out better. And we see glimpses of what kind of hero Cho Soran is becoming. It's a powerful storey comprised of mixed Chinese and Japanese talents.

    All sorts of terrible
    Cons:
    -Script is all over the place
    -Dialogue is terrible.
    -Whilst most of the animation team has done pretty good job, the team clearly has some animators who weren't quite up to the task.
    -Character reactions are very, very hollow

    Pros:
    -Nobody is forcing you to watch it at gunpoint.

    This Anime is a Mystery From Both Within the Show and the Outer.
    This is based on episode 1 so of course changes will be made as the show progresses

    So as the majority of you guys have seen the preview of this Anime, it has been seen to put it into simpler terms a Anime show about zombies. Well watching the first episode showed more then just a zombie apocalypse, but also showed a lot more questions after watching the first episode.

  • The art is stylized, NOT bad SMH
    Everybody keeps hating on the art, but the choice to draw it that way was obviously on purpose. Not sure how others didn't realize that when watching. Ok, enough about that....The story is insanely good! I binged this whole season at once, because I was hooked that fast. Man are there some twists too. I'd give it a SOLID 9.9. If there is not a second season of this one I am seriously going ...

  • Very rough around the edges.
    I enjoyed this show, I feel that the Chinese themes were a refreshing change to see and that it had a plot with intrigue and promise for serious character development; I cannot, however, recommend this to anyone. Technical faults really detract from the show as a whole, leaving it a bit of a mess despite my enjoyment.

    Hitorinoshita commits two main sins, one is that the animation is poor. I ...
