Thoughts: The vibe reminded me of the movie, Colorful or even the anime Beck: Mongolian Chop Squad. Even the drawing style is similar except this is more abstract and grittier. I don’t think those are the right adjective to describe the animation but they are the closest I could come up with. Anyway, I like the realism that it tries to imbibe. The plot is very dark and it tackles really deep-rooted issues. I have no idea what to expect but I’m pretty sure we’re in for a rollercoaster ride.

 

Initial Rating: 7.5/10
