It is so goddang much like Eureka seveN.
I don’t mean like only the characters (though they are) because if it were just character trait similarities I wouldn’t care.
But Lost Christmas = The Summer of Love.
And Funeral Parlour = Gekkostate.
And the Apocalypse Virus = Desperation Disease (bit of a stretch there actually, I'll admit).

Shu = Renton
Inori = Eureka
Daryl = Anemone

Ayase = Talho
Tsugumi = Gidget (debateable)

It's just... it seems so unoriginal to me because of this. I'm just seriously hoping they throw in a massive surprise into the plot for the viewers to witness (and I will flip many tables if my 'Shu's sister' idea is actually right).
But I'm not hating the show; I find it quite entertaining, but definitely not the show of the season. It felt like a show of the season in episode 4; now not so much. :\ 'Hoping the next episode will roll in some surprises.
Also this OST continues to amaze me. I want to buy it so bad. ;;
