    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.

    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 ...

    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.

    "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 ...

    Another anime from people who only watch anime.
    Cute pet, orphan kid sidekick, samurai swords, magic powers. Corny, grandiose dialogue. Camille Winbush is barely audible, though that's kind of on the audio dept.
    Fight choreography's alright, and it's super great there's more black representation in anime, but I'm not interested in watching a full season if it's all gonna be like this. LeSean Thomas's love for Bebop is clear but he really ...

  • 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. ...

    Don't believe the hype
    There's nothing interesting here. It's an American show animated in the style we come here to see, which is to say, it's boring. If you want to to watch an anime style American show you'll be better off watching RWBY. I was intrigued for about 5 minutes and then this became absolutely insufferable. The characters aren't interesting and the world is absolutely nonsensical. The art is good though. ...
