Did we watch the same anime??? Somehow I can help but feel the people who wrote that article were just looking for something to dislike this December. I bingewatched the whole thing and I was, indeed ,entertained.
I understand, the anime was a bunch of hollywood cliches thrown together, but tbh thats what made me like it? Especially because all the animes out there lately, they just..no. I will agree the writing was on and off, and the ED was kinda put there, but overall I would give this anime a 7.5 out of 10.
Also this was by Pierrot, and while I know they have great animators there, and any studio with a big budget will allow itself to make well animated scenes, I was not expecting this animation. I'm not saying it was 100% perfect but gosh this is the same studio that produced masses of LOL faces for bleach/naruto for years, so let me have it. Also, I'm certain they knew they were kinda mimicking a James Bond film, it felt like a serious parody and honestly im here for it, you guys are just mean. I rather this anime to the bunch of animes that come out every single month where all the characters look 12 but are like 25.
