It is a wild ride. 100% worth it. Avoid spoilers like the plague. If I hadn't already been spoiled by my internet habits, it would've been 10/10 tier for me, I bet.
Oh right. The anime doesn't have the manga's art style at all. That's why I don't recognize it.
I enjoyed that anime. Felt like it wasn't trying to be serious though. Like, the manga might have been, but the translation to an anime format seems to have been "well, we'll just kinda convert but kinda not."
What I mean is, it didn't feel like they were trying to give a complete and coherent experience with the story they told in the anime. Like they just selectively took arcs from the manga and made their own bite size 12 episode storyline. And that made it feel incomplete and hard to be invested in.
I did enjoy it tho.
There are so many anime like that it's kind of disheartening. I know anime is more so used to sell manga at times, and that's why cliffhangers and crappy endings exist like they do, but it's so frustrating when you don't read manga but want the whole story.
sigh so much ahead of me and it never ends.
I legit didn't think this would be good, but I think this is a perfect example of what anime can do well. Take bat shit insane concepts and make them interesting and beautiful.
It sounds stupid but it's pretty great. The art is , the music is pretty good, the story is decent, and the action is good.
It doesn't try to tie all loose ends, but doesn't leave the audience wondering either. Pretty good imo.
It has a tiny bit of mandatory fan-service. tinee tho.
