    World Trigger Good Story Bad Animation
    Ok, so here is my first review.

    One day an alien creature called a neighbor invades Mikado City. Modern weapons are of course useless against it, until a mysterious group called border uses mysterious devices called Triggers to defeat the beast. So now, Border is the official neighbor exterminator. Enter Osamu Mikumo, a quiet junior high student with glasses (they mention this alot) who is also ...

    Story looks good but...
    The most low budget animation I've ever seen(not including the backgrounds), constant freeze frames, awkward characters, DISPROPORTIONATE bodies, etc....The only reason you should watch this is for an example on how a good story can't hold up a show on it's own.

    Some examples of what I'm talking about:
    (This is Ep.1)
    7:30 (Running animation)
    10:15 (Character interaction)
    16:16 (Freeze ...

    Great series, but unfortunately animated by Toei.
    Nice story and good characters, story will undoubtedly get better. Great voice cast for characters who are rather colorful. Only problem is the animation, which is pretty bad at certain points. The animation for the series makes me feel it's been given a low budget to work with.
    But if you can overlook the animation, the series is decent in all other aspects. Animation is it's one problem in ...

    Haters gonna hate -- don't pay them any mind
    People judging this as "sub-par animation" are being WAY overly pretentious. Watch it for yourself and judge. While the animation isn't OMG jaw dropping, it's not nearly as bad as it's being made out to be. Belittling and prejudging something just because you don't like the production company is dishonest, biased, and overall just a petty and immature mindset.

    Also, just to add: the complaints ...

    bad animation style does not mean bad show
    the reviews that give low stars are all based on one thing, the animation quality. not the quality of the show. by quality of the show I mean story, action, plot, char. development and voice acting, things like that. this really isn't my review on the show just trying to prevent people getting scared away thinking the whole show is bad. only one ep. so far so I will hold my review after I get a ...

    a basic review of the 1 to 3 episodes
    great characters and plot line. the story centers around the appearance of one of the neighbours "the equivalent of humans from anther dimensions exactly what this mean is not revealed at the time of this review" in the life of the main character. the show looks promising and the animation style is great if different from the norm. if you like the sound of this plot line try watching it.

    Interesting story, rough animation, could be better.
    The premise is interesting enough to keep me watching and see this anime through, characters themselves seem pretty solid, the animation is notably rough. Not only in the art style, but how we go from scene to scene. (even when the ''camera'' switches) It's not fluid at all, and throws me off. Also there are plenty of moments where we are just staring at freeze in the animation for what feels like ...

    To each their own, but this anime has potential
    I've been watching anime for a long time now and to those who say the animation is lacking, i say your imagination is lacking. This is definitely not Ghost in the Shell quality animation, but the entertainment value is there. It's got a good amount of comedy mixed in with the action and it keeps the viewers attention very well. Personally, i really enjoy the artistic liberties taken with Kuga's ...

    Too early to JUDGE! Give it a chance!
    This is one of those series that builds good momentum. you have to stick with it and be patient until it gets really good!
    The first episode alone doesn't do it much justice, especially for newcomers who haven't read the manga, but the beginning is very reminiscent of Naruto's!!

    Excellent worldbuilding, terrible adaptation
    I love this manga series - excellent worldbuilding and so well thought out, with engaging and well-developed characters - so am really excited to see how the anime evolves. Absolutely frustrated by how poor the animation budget is though. Will definitely keep watching but if it weren't for my faith in the quality of the manga I'll admit the anime on its own isn't as grabbing.
