    Good start, but start watching from Ep 1
    Full disclosure, the owner of this account usual writes about princesses in his reviews while making fun of his gf. But this time, his gf has secretly infiltrated his account to take back her name and write some actual reviews -.-
    ____________

    Great start to the series that quickly sets up an intriguing story. I made the mistake of watching EP 0 first and almost quit, thinking it was some ...

    And incredible premise and a masterpiece of a first half that ended up on a trainwreck.
    This is a textbook example of Executive melting.

    The first half started incredible well, a First Contact story were the characters acted like intelligent adults.

    But the last 3-4 episodes ended up as a magical girl show if a Deus ex Machima so Deus ex Machima that created more questions and problems that it resolved.

    A modern retelling of history
    This show makes it clear very early on that it's way of drawing in viewers is not excessive action, endless conspiracies, or twisted villains and heroes, but rather about the tension of trying to understand the unknown and the nuances of communication.

    Initially, I was of the opinion that this show would be very similar to Arrival, a movie starring Amy Adams from 2016. However, as more episodes ...

    Stunning. Mature. Intelligent.
    The characters personalities and backstories seem thoroughly thought out, and are enjoyable to know. The art style is absolutely gorgeous, with a great deal of work put into setting designs and research. The plots have ample realistic components that make the settings come alive, even through the fantasy, so you trust and believe in the characters and story. Oddly, the animation has sudden ...

    Some potential here, but needed more focus
    This show explores interesting ideas: how would the world react to a godlike being spontaneously appearing in a giant cube and crushing an airplane? How would such a being benefit from giving humanity the kind of progress it's been craving for centuries, all in the span of a few months? What are the consequences of this kind of advancement?

    The show starts strong, focusing on the third ...

    Excellent Production
    I noticed in the first minute that KADO: The Right Answer has excellent sound design and quality. It also seems to be a pleasantly mature show (Not R rated afaik but just not teenagers in high school being cliche anime characters). In fact, I've spotted very few silly anime cliches that ultimately are the result of lazy writing or pandering to fans. The nice production quality makes this show a ...

    One of the few intellectual shows of spring season.
    I was super bummed when I saw this seasons lineup (spring 2017) because, as usual, crunchyroll seemed to be pandering to the lowest common denominator (ecchi, harem, slice of life etc.) Then, I looked at the spring 2017 list for ALL streaming sites and realized a sad truth- that serious animes with intellect are actually very rare these days.

    So, I've been watching the few good anime of the ...

    Good start, not a good execution on the ending
    I really enjoyed watching most of this (though I admit to crocheting through most of it. Knights of Sidonia taught me that not actually looking at these 3D animes really helps the enjoyment).
    It started out pretty interesting, though in a really mundane way that I really enjoyed. It's like a slice of life political syfy show! For sure, it's something I have never seen before.
    It could be slow in ...

    Started out great but in the end, disappointing
    The story starts great with a being from another dimension offering humanity a gift which begs the question, are these gifts too good? The story shows what a possible response of humanity may be. But unfortunately, rather than continue down that path, the story narrative turns to the absurd. It takes what were once intelligent, thoughtful and decisive characters, and then does a 180. These ...

    It's a very exciting start. Outstanding animations and visuals. Good voice acting. Dramatic story line.
    It starts with a business negotiator talking on a plane to a junior. Their airplane gets "absorbed" by an alien aircraft that lands on it while it's taxiing. The government then tries to understand and the craft and save the passengers, and thus hangs the tale. The alien aircraft in exciting to behold, a 2 KM cube with an exterior that constantly changes. The first episode shows decent ...
