    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 ...

    Japanimorphs: battle for soul and love
    Did you see the drum roll? that scene in the beginning made my panties wet. If the art remains consistent, this story of Micheal Jackson vs Wolvarine seems promising. Captain Ahab must uphold the oath, and maybe find his white whale, who took a fatal breast wound; or just collect an assortment of grills to fill the void left in his pancreas when baby ...

    Poor 1st episode; spoiled a lot of mystery from the original way too fast
    To start on a positive note, Animation is of top quality. Fluid, well drawn, colorful, crisp, no jarringly obvious CG detected. Character design is faithful to the source material. Argument to be made that they could have preserved the original art style (which notably used some very somber, dark tones), but let's be real - carrying over handdrawn style is very rare with anime adaptations. It's a ...

    The combat is gritty. The story...
    Significant violence and bloodshed throughout. Drawing and animation are good.

    The plot in the first episode feels very front-loaded. They packed a whole lot of story into the first episode. While it was by no means bad, it felt oddly structured. The events took place at a breakneck pace. Some of what happens feels like it should be very impactful, but since this is the very first episode, you ...

    I started watching anime for the good storytelling. This doesn't have it.
    EDIT after Ep. 8: Well this is one more show which simply gets worse as it goes. The only thing the show has going for it is busty blondes and their male equivalents. There is a huge lack of writing integrity here. It's like the writers expect you to know things they haven't mentioned about the world. For example, the first 4 episodes are about how the people are handling the end of the war ...

    It's not bad, rather it's good but not that good...
    The introduction is about two nations that went through civil war due to economical disputes. These sacred beasts are experimental, biological weapon of destruction which gave them the upper hand in the war, however it has a downside of the unknown. The "technology" has side effects which affects the soul of it's user.

    They messed up the initial story telling and character introduction. They ...

    Pretty good so far to early to make complete judgement on
    The anime so far only has 1 episode and it was pretty good in my opinion. I haven’t read the manga but I saw some reviews complaining how they rushed through “secrets” but honestly from what I hear I’m kind of glad they did cause I would rather not have something that seems like “Irregular at magic high school” where it takes 10 episodes for us to get even close to a comprehensive knowledge into ...

    First Episode Review.
    This hurt a little bit.
    After watching the first episode I could only think of over dramatized T.V. Novellas.
    You are bombarded with lore and such that really feels empty. Characters are slightly built with many of them being introduced and dying off within the same episode. It all lacks a lot of impact and it is presented as though it's supposed to mean anything.

    TL;DR there's so much ...

    Democratic nation must I say more?
    Democrats are not my favorite people, and whats more a nation of them... Aww jeez! That by itself made me slow to pick this up and spring a chance, but as a lover of everything that is anime I looked passed it and gave it a shot. Hey listen it was nor good or bad just that the deliverance was kinda forcefully rushed and not well thought out. It's like going to the beach fun while your there, but ...
