Yes (from the first 2 episodes anyway), also has good pedigree as written and directed by the guys who did Legend of Galactic heroes.Lupus Inu said:I need a reliable opinion on whether to watch Tytania or not, should I? Y/N I have episode 1 downloaded but I could just delete it if it's not worth it. The above poster said it's good but sadly I don't know them well enough to believe them.
Kurozuka (EP 1-2) said:For the most part, I loved the first two episodes. I was constantly confused about what was going on with Benkei - one minute he saved the main character, refusing to kill him when offered many chances, and then he seemed to suddenly be on the baddies side. Episode 2 confused me completely, I wasn't sure if Benkei was supposed to be the evil samurai at the start or if the focus just changed to the insanity of his mind randomly. And, talking of Benkei, the guy who Kuromitsu was drinking the blood of in the first episode looked like him...hell, every secondary character seems to have the same design as Benkei!
As always with anime at the start, I'm at a loss as to what's going on in terms of story, and the switching between samurai Japan and a post-apocalyptic setting isn't helping me out. Right now, I'm simply focusing on the main character and his relationship with the immortal female lead in order to avoid getting a headache. I'll worry about not understanding the plot at all when I've watched a couple more episodes.
Anyway, it's great aside from the plot confusion. The animation looked good; the action was fairly exciting; I want to know more about Kuromitsu, the hot immortal lady and the dark story is what I like to see in my anime. It was a bit odd how quickly the main two wanted to get it on without knowing anything about each other, but I'll just go with the flow and not try to be logical about sexual relations with mysterious women.
Michiko to Hatchin (EP 1) said:Great first episode. It started out with a fun prison breakout sequence, then switched to the viewpoint of a poor little girl who was with an evil family, meaning the episode blended silliness with a serious edge. I loved the visuals, the range of vivid colours used being excellent, and the art/animation wasn't exactly bad in 720P.
No idea what the story is going to be like yet since the focus of the first episode was on getting the main two together and not on filling the viewers in with regards to the plot. After seeing the blend of silly and serious in the first episode, there's a good chance the series will be fairly interesting even if it's going to be completely episodic, so I'm not too worried at the moment.
There was one thing that bugged me about Hana: her voice actress. The voice and the character didn't match; the voice sounded far older than the young character. I liked her voice but it just didn't sound right to me...
