    10 minutes an episode is it's major downfall
    The problem with these mini-animes is that they are trying to cram too much into only 10 minutes per episode. Because of that, the story is constantly skipping important pieces of the story, tossing characters around and "jumping the shark" repeatedly. There's no connection to the characters either because of the rushed pacing going on. You really don't care what happens because you have no real ...

    I usually don't do these but here it goes
    This show had some potential at the start but my main concern was that the op and ep take up like 50% of the show. Other than that it literally jumps around so much that you have no idea whats even going on. Its like watching 10 different animes at once and trying to connect each one in anyway possible.
    The art work was decent 7/10
    The story can't even be rated because it literally has none ...

    Too Much, Don't Care
    I was willing to accept this series would start late. But they're trying to pack in multiple arcs and never explain anything. That being the case, who cares about these characters if bad thing happen? Don't invest the time to watch this. There are better shows out there this season.

    Terrible show. Plot and pacing issues.
    This show is terrible. I know some shows are shorter. But this is insane. Show is all over the place. Feels like you're talking with your drunk uncle. Rambling from one thing to the next, very little over it making any sense. And just when you start to get interested...he passes out. This show is exactly like that. Each episode is 13 minutes long. 4 minutes of that is intro and ending songs. ...

    Too short. Only watch if you don't have much time
    This show has so much potential. It is a shame that the episodes are only 10 minutes long. If they had more time then they could potentially fill in all the plot holes and skips in the story. This is a good thing to watch if you are on a ten minute bus ride home or want to watch something a work without your boss catching you, because you won't be able to get invested enough to lose your ...

    good anime, if it wasn't 10 minute episodes
    this anime will make you hate it! right when you get sucked into an episode, it ends?! it's sad too, cuz it's really not that bad of an anime. it's just soo many plot line/ story arcs to tell within the 10 min episode, this anime had potential too. really sad they didn't get a deal that allowed them to have normal 20 min episodes... sorry to say, but i hope this show doesn't get a "season 2" ...

    Fun but NEEDS WORK!!
    I enjoyed the show even though I don't think it was amazing either. My 3 problems were the pacing, the 13 minute episodes, and how the last episode left us with nothing. The show answered 0 questions throughout but posed way too many.
    One last thing actually, it felt like they spent forever getting through pointless seems. This made it seem like some episodes were pointless. They should pace the ...

    Good series, don't judge too early.
    Like Youjo Senki (Saga of Tanya the Evil), the first episode is almost solely action, and 90% of people don't understand it's purpose. Episode 1 is just to catch the attention of people channel-flipping on the TV, and to show that the series will mainly be action in a video game setting. Contrary to what many are saying, the first episode does contain some plot, but it's kept vague and limited, so ...

  • Wait... what? that's it?
    This show was starting to look pretty good... but it never got there. It was like watching a very long trailer for something much better. Unfortunately, this wasn't a trailer. This was the actual show, and it never got to the "good part".

    I get that anime likes to cut you off at ep12 and you get to wonder what is to become of the characters... but this takes the cake. You're left waiting ...

  • Lacking and hollow. Won't finish
    While the concept sounds interesting, the execution is extremely lacking.

    I watched up to episode 6 or so and that was only because of the opening theme song. I wanted to know who all these interesting characters were... but you don't really find out within those first episodes.
