    The animation is interesting but not implemented well
    It's like watching a comic book be animated but without any of the excitement and quickness of reading a comic book. The animation is cool but it's very slow paced and it really makes it kind of boring to watch. The stills are nice but with the slow pace of everything going on it might as well have just been released as a comic book. I think Stan Lee is in on this and i'm a little disappointed ...

    Bad Animation, Bad Story, Just All Around Bad
    This anime just seems to have nothing going for it. First off, the animation. Now the art style is perfectly fine; it captures the comic book aesthetic very well and is one of the best parts of the show. When it starts moving is where the problems come, or actually don't. A good portion of the anime are stills and pans, and the backgrounds have nothing going on, making this action-packed ...

    A supers show that is animated, not anime.
    If you are expecting anime, this isn't it. But as a supers show it has promise.

    Highlights: Great art aesthetic, animation and direction need work. Excellent sound effects and nice BGM choices though light on BGM content. Slow story start and cliched characters but underlying premise shows promise. Designed for American audiences.

    Animated in a minimalist ...

    The anime with a new direction to everything
    Although this isn't perfect, I have seen worse. This is an anime co-produced and created by Stan Lee the founder of Marvel Comics, animated flicks such as The Condor, an anime such as Heroman.

    Overall, I liked it, although the plot does not seem to be straight forward with itself, The Reflection gives enough to be wanting more. The art direction, meant to resemble western comics in contrast ...

    A Superhero Anime with MCU Aesthetic
    When I saw the trailer for this, I was excited to hear Stan Lee narrating in it. Everything about this screams Marvel, from the OP to the way the action scenes are shot. It introduced the characters in exciting ways and I'm excited to see where this is going to go.

    If I have any negatives, other than the animation not always working for me, I'd say I'm tempted to see this as a dub in the ...

    Good Storyline but horrid graphics and?
    The Reflection has a possible story line could be very good but the Graphics and audio tends to make this extremely difficult to watch. I just hope the is a good reason in the story line for the Graphics as the Graphics are worse than 1950's comics that have been animated. I will keep watching and see if the reason works for the storyline. I will update my comments if it is necessary.

    Something New, Something Different.
    American Comic Style combined with Japanese anime. With so many anime coming out with the same template over and over again. This anime seems to be a breath of fresh air.Being a fan of American Comics and Japanese Manga I have extremely high hopes for this anime, hopefully it doesn't disappoint and if it is good I hope it doesn't go unnoticed.

    Stiff animation, boring writing
    Some of the animation is like something you'd put on a t-shirt, its beautiful and artistic.... until it starts to move, then it just feels clunky and stiff, it doesn't really flow well. The writing is kinda crap too, at the end of the first episode the villains just tell you who they are why they exist, and why they don't like the hero's. This is something that should be discovered by the audience ...

    Its Different, but who says that is bad.
    It was kinda like watching a comic book. Best way for me to describe it. The audio at time really made what was going on feel impactful to me. If you like superhero comics/anime/or anything such of the sort, give the first episode a try and see how you like it. Different, but I enjoyed the first episode so we will see.

    Interesting... Very interesting...
    Now don't get me wrong, it's not super bad. I just don't like the art style. The storyline seems like a reflection of My Hero Academia but totally different art style.

    I would not watch the 2nd episode but this review is mostly opinion based.

    I needed 7 more characters. ^_^
