I might be the only person who doesn’t like this series. I don’t think I am going to continue on with it, but this one was pretty definitely meh for me.
Here’s my issues:
- The art was fine, but unimpressive. Ok, not a huge deal but fine.
- Zero stakes.
Zero stakes. I said it. It’s like Pacific Rim. If the premise is so strangely different from real world possibilities and then there’s nothing super close to human interaction and understanding, then I am going to have a real problem finding anything to give a crap about during the story.
There’s nothing here that means anything to my life. And because the characters are otherwordly and divine and all kinds of other things, I cannot extend my understanding of the world onto them and then play-act in the guide of empathizing with what is driving them. Even in stories that are wholly alien to my world and my worldview I have to be given something, something to hold on to and I am not convinced there really is anything here for me.
It reminds me of Pacific Rim. I know, that’s a dumb comparison, but here’s the deal. No character development at all and then a premise that is so alien to real life that I never once felt any real sense of stakes. The same thing happens here. No one here was real, so I just didn’t care one bit about what they did or what happened to them. And so, I am done.
