    Amazing first episode. Ignore the negative reviews.
    Too many negative reviews. This show is worth it, i suggest ignoring the reviews altogether and just enjoy the show. I dont give 2 F's about how "the original" was like. The experience on the first episode was great and that's all that matters. WATCH IT

    Watch the 2nd Episode 1st... trust me
    Before starting I saw a review that recommended I start from the 2nd episode and I decided to do just that. The first episode has a serious pacing problem as it's very rushed and I'd describe it as an "info-bomb" that didn't prepare itself very well. Watching the 2nd episode 1st remedies this by keeping the mystery intact by introducing us to one of the relatives of a main character. It's honestly ...

    Abandoned and boring
    ASB is a story about soldiers who were given god-like powers and how they struggled after being returned to society. I was really looking forward to seeing how it would be adapted from it's manga. Honestly it's not worth watching.

    First episode front loads all the exposition giving Hank a tragic backstory. It was honestly the weakest part of the manga and something that should have been told ...

    Engaging and beautiful show!!
    I originally started watching this because Mafumafu was singing the opening, but I'll have to say I was pleasantly surprised!! The art is gorgeous and well-done and the story is engaging. It's fast-paced but holds your attention. I can't wait to see more!!

    Not the best but not the worst
    It is very okay, it sets the standard of an ok anime. I find the purple haired girl very shallow in terms of character, and I would think the same of Hank if it wasn't for the first episode. It's only in the first episode where I saw some of his leadership, emotions, and background. Now he's just someone that doesn't really captivate me. The only reason why I'm still watching is because the idea ...

    Depressing AF but good to watch
    It is a good monster vs monster slayer in a dark setting. It is however enormously depressing with its metaphor of CTE(athletes) and PTSD(soldiers) rolled up into one big steaming roll of depression and candy wrapped with monster costumes. After coming to grips with that, you have to accept that the MC has to either eventually off himself in this story or they will find some cliché magic cure and ...

    Anime is okay, but manga is GREAT
    The animation quality is really good for now and it works as a pretty decent story on its own, so if you have no interest in reading the manga then this is a perfectly watchable show but not the best one to come out this season. (I'm really digging Fire Force.) But do yourself a favor and check out the first manga volume on Comixology or some other digital platform. You won't regret it. As ...

    Don't like the Order of the Anime
    I noticed that a lot of people on here are agreeing on the fact that they don't like the order of story being presented here compared to the manga. I would agree on that statement. It's hard to give a rating to something that you know is adapted from a good story. However, I'm here to judge the anime. overall the animation is smooth for the most part. Nothing to complain about Studio Mappa who ...

    Fairly Good Foundation, Hopefully the story will progress nicely
    After watching the first episode I have some initial thoughts. I do think that the animation quality is fairly high and the combat scenes were overall satisfying.
    The first episode did cover a LOT of story points in a short amount of time, which may have been a slight bit rushed, but still overall alright. I did not have a big issue with the show trying to convey the overall message of the story ...

    Not an exciting first episode.
    I was really hoping this first episode was going to draw me into this anime. I had a lot of expectations.

    Expecting Decent Animation/combat:
    First fight scene wasn't logical in any sense. Upon the first transformation, the HUGE dragon, I expecting cannon fire bombarding this guy, but NOPE. Said dragon flies and wreaks havoc unharmed despite being so large. In the next fight, they all seemed ...
