    Disgusting faux moralizing wrapped up in a weak plot.
    This is what happens when an author tries to justify perverse societal norms and a lot of the fans can see through the giant gaping holes in their rationalizations.

    In more detail, the "moral" metaphors in this anime are:
    -Killing your own soldiers when they return from war is a good thing, because they're too harsh and inconvenient during peace time. In fact, they should just off themselves ...

    It's the Okayest Show Around
    First off READ THE MANGA
    To the Abandoned Sacred Beasts commits something I like to call "The Author Surrogate Sin" where the character that we, the audience, are supposed to self-insert into as they learn about the world. The main girl is that character, in this adaptation, we already know the "things" she's just finding out so her profound observations come off more like she's ...

    Watch people be betrayed and die.
    I don't watch horror or tragedies for a reason and this is pretty much a horror tragedy. Thoroughly depressing and filled with people whose lives are destroyed over and over and end up dead. This is not a story of redemption, but a story of one tragedy after another, which I'm guessing ends with the protagonist dying, or worse, committing suicide because he knows that he can't stay or he'll ...

    It gets better after Episode 1
    I must admit the first episode felt rushed and felt like it had at least 2-3 episodes worth of content in it but it does get better from the first episode, the pace gets slower and it helps explain things better. The visuals are amazing and top notch. Just continue from the second episode and you won't be disappointed.

    Impressions After the First Episode
    After watching the first episode, I'm very much looking forward to more. The action is well-paced so far. A unit of soldiers called "Incarnates" can transform into a variety of mighty beast-human hybrids. There's a civil war going on, with technology pretty much the same as the American Civil War. Naturally, the Incarnates have a huge advantage, but they can still be killed with sufficient ...

    Give it a chance, some of these reviews are ridiculous
    Make it through the first 4 episodes I would say and the show does develop different dynamics other than the Hank must kill 1 beast a show thing. The animation is actually awesome, and there is not a character that I can say I dislike which is actually surprising. I rarely write reviews, and this may even be my first. I just think this show deserve a lil bit of love and nowhere near as much ...

  • It's Old Yeller and Where
    And where the Red Fern Grows joined together and this is their Love Child! I give a four, a one from the beginning cause I didn't really like the concept behind it. But eh, it grew on me. It's like watching someone you want to care about and then watching them be put down in some *beeped* up manner.

    Episode 1 Sucked. Like bad.
    Episode one had enough info to lead me to believe they could have built a 1st season out of what was going on throughout it. Really REALLY rushed. Now I stopped after that, so I'll give it three stars but to be entirely honest if THAT'S the best they can do, it probably deserves a 2, maybe a 1. But I have hope they can fix themselves lol

    A heavy and depressing series, not for everyone
    I absolutely adore this anime's art style and the character designs between the cast are pretty distinct! It definitely grabbed me in upon episode 1 and the reveal of the Incarnates' power but man- later down the line it quickly becomes mentally tiring to watch by the amount of despair and angst it has.

    It's a promising how in the first few episodes with the introduction of Schaal and her ...

    Sad but a good story
    I started with the 2nd episode as suggested and found it to be a very good drama. It is sad what the Incarnates go through, much like soldiers coming back from war. The animation is very good. I am enjoying it and hope all the bad reviews don't keep others from giving it a chance.
