What a mess. I really wanted to like this anime but after watching all 13 episodes I still don't understand what was going on in the story. If you want some good fight scenes you can give it a try (the animation quality is good, as expected of studio MAPPA), but overall I unfortunately can't recommend this anime.
Decent anime at the most. Fighting scenes were definitely eye-catching but there wasn't any proper closure to anything in the plot. Too much happened too quickly and I couldn't get what was happening in the story. At first there were normal humanly fights, then everyone started fighting with superpowers called "Charyeok", then suddenly god came out of nowhere with "MECHANICAL ROBOT" type of things and in the end the main character turns out to be a [spoiler]god (good one)[/spoiler] himself!!!!????:sweat_smile: . Well, animation of the fights were definitely awesome but I'm not a fan of "RED NOSES" though. To sum it up, watch this if you don't give a f*** about the plot.
This probably is a decent adaptation of the webtoon/manhwa, but unfortunately for us non-manhwa readers; too many shit happens way too quickly without any buildup. Especially in the final few episodes where deus ex machinas after deus ex machinas are pulled out of nowhere .
I am Sophie and this is my website.
A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.
But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈
I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…
I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.
Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
