AniDB wrote:The Japanese government was rescued from the brink of financial collapse by the Sovereign Wealth Fund. For its citizens, however, life has not improved, and unemployment, crime, suicide, and despair are rampant. Kimimaro, raised by his maternal grandmother after the disappearance of his father and the death of his mother, is a scholarship student whose only dream is to avoid all this and live a stable life. One day, however, he meets a man who offers him a large sum of money if he'll agree to pay it back. From then on his fate is radically altered as he's drawn into a mysterious area known as "The Financial District."

Grr, that was an irritating place to end the first ep!

But looks like this show will be pretty interesting. The art style is a little odd to me [And kinda familiar though I cant place it], but it'll grow on me Im sure.

I still need to look this show up :x

Ep 2 was pretty cool, but a little too fast paced - The whole game seemed barely explained/explained on the fly, so I ended up trying more to figure out what was going on then actually enjoying the battle. Mashu's injuries were a little odd too, as she would be gravely injured and covered in blood in one scene, then the very next scene she was perfectly fine and bloodless. I understand that she says she heals quickly, but let's at least have a transition between the two >>

It also occurred to me that some shots use cel-shaded 3D models rather than traditional animation, which was interesting. It actually blends surprisingly well for once. Haven't a clue why they do it, but still works.

Also, this ep had the problem of the acting not quite matching the visuals to some extent. The characters would sound like they were flipping out, but only looked mildly surprised.

I like this show...really.

Yeah everything was moving a bit too fast in episode 2, but the show's still holding my interest.
I noticed the slight CGI/cel-shaded animation in episode 1 with the Mad Hatter-type character, and I do agree that they've blended it in quite well with the 2D animation.

I think I might be able to watch episode 3 tonight, so I'll be looking forward to that. =]

I was going to post a few thoughts about ep 3, but my thoughts got derailed by...

Spoiler :
The english section. The head of the organization is SO FREAKING BLACK that it's hilarious XD Combined with the engrish, I nearly died.


Also, George is my favorite character <3

Hey what, don't make a decision based on mine! XD You might like it more than me anyways; its like you said, there're a lot of good praise for the show.
'Just not my kinda show is all. *shrugs*

However I'd like to hear how it ends, so I'll keep checking back here for that at least. xD

I just don't wanna be disappointed about an anime that was advertised to be good but turned out crap like "Last Exile" and "Samurai 7"

This show is so bad. I just don't care about any of the characters. At all.

Okay, maybe his asset. Just a little bit.

Aw hell, if I want cute clueless humanoid I'll go finish Ika Musume. At least it's genuine comedy.

So yeah. Fuck this show.

....probably still gonna keep watching though.

Yeah, I feel about the same way about it. None of the characters are interesting or likable. I think the only reason I would keep watching this is to find out what happens in the end, but I can predict that pretty well. It's too bad, I love the hell out of the character design for Mysu. Too bad her personality is a giant cliche.

I like mysu because she's
