I wasnâ€™t originally planning on watching this show this season but I saw a bit of it and it just shocked me and I wanted to see more. I was always a fan of Shaftâ€™s work in the ef series and seeing some of that here was definitely one of the more interesting parts of this show. Itâ€™s got the same kind of artistic flare; even more sometimes it seems with the backgrounds constantly being just those long shadows and lines. Although nowhere near the same as normal backdrops, you can still see what those backdrops and what the surroundings are.
As for the story and the characters of this show, the much more interesting part of this show, itâ€™s just beyond words. My first impression of this show was simply, â€œWTF!â€ Itâ€™s justâ€¦odd. The characters are interesting; they arenâ€™t absolute stereotypes or characters youâ€™ve seen a thousand times before. This looks to just be full of more interesting and shocking revelations. So far the characters have already revealed some really deep feelings and emotions and have already expressed troubling and interesting pasts that they can easily talk about throughout the whole series. It is just really a very unique show. Although sometimes Iâ€™ll watch a show that is clichÃ© and has a premise and characters that have been done hundreds of times before, just for fun, but this show is different. This show is easily something unique that I think should be watched because of that.
As for this crab arc, Iâ€™m not sure what to say. On one hand the arc itself served as an introduction to the characters and the series. It showed the main characters meeting, starting them off rather hostile but in the end, though working together in this arc, they got closer. Now, I donâ€™t think the personalities are going to be completely different even if they are â€œfriendsâ€ now. Still, although it served as an introduction it was a story by itself about how these feelings transferred into actual weight. It was obviously a metaphor about the weight or your memories and feelings, and Iâ€™m guessing a series like this will just be full of things like that, which Iâ€™m just going to be constantly on the lookout for.
