    It is worth watching the first episode
    I've only seen the first episode, but it's pretty good. The voice acting is English, and surprisingly, the voices are more than just bearable to listen to. They even got REAL child voice actors (or maybe just adults who are incredibly good at voicing children).

    The episode itself was interesting. At first, it was a jarring - the scenes were changing too fast and it felt like the anime needed a ...

    Simply astonishing!!
    While the story is convoluted, the artwork is fantastic! A homage to older styled Anime while looking fresh and clean. AND FROM THE CREATOR OF THE BOONDOCKS! What more is there to say?! From his past works though you know the story is going to be amazing! I just hope more is to come because I can't miss this one. I refuse to miss this one!

    I loved it more than I thought I would
    I came across this while just clicking on random. I decided to watch it. I love it. The backgrounds are beautiful. I love the black rep, and I actually like the English, although the kid's voices were pretty annoying. I did also really like the fight scene and would like to know more about the character she was fight with. overall I like it and would suggest you watch it if you are looking for ...

    "C'mon Rhonda, smile a little! After all, there isn't a better time to be alive!"
    It is by no means perfect, but I think there's a certain poetry to this entire episode that's lost on people who are viewing it from a specifically "anime watching" lens.

    They could have ended this short prologue of an episode with literally any words in the English language, but they chose that of this review's title. And then they decided to give those lines immense weight by delivering ...

    Interesting Preview! Where's the Rest of it?
    The voice acting is really cute, the characters and their designs are really good too! The plot seems very interesting, I just wanna know when the series is coming out!! It feels put together really well and from what I hear has some reputable writers and directors behind the scenes.

    Solid short. Continue?
    I give this 3 stars if this does indeed continue. Not much I gathered from this short. If Rhonda does live throughout the series I hope she lets out that anger. We do know she killed her father. I didn't catch who she was looking for. Blah blah blah we'll see what happens.

  • interesting art direction
    its not the most hype thing in the world but as far as a 14 minute pilot goes i really enjoyed it, fun and energetic while retaining some interesting and fun world/character design.

    the plot doesnt seem to be all that complicated but the relative lack of post apocalyptic mad-max style anime these days makes this seem pretty fresh and fun. the voice acting is pretty competent even for the child ...

  • More episodes please
    The first episode really hooked me. I enjoyed the art work and concepts along with the mysterious plot line. The world that these characters live in seem beautiful while also seeming post apocalyptic. Based on the first episode this show has a lot of potential.

  • A solid preview for what may be the future of the medium
    I'm for one very excited for the burgeoning globalization of "anime" and the surge of co-productions and non-Japanese produced shows in the style. Boondocks is a classic, Avatar is one of the greatest shows of all time, and the recent first season of Castlevania was one of the best original shows the service has delivered.

    LeSean Thomas is definitely someone to watch out for in this movement. ...
