I am so hyped for this show. Honestly it does reek of .hack and it’s video game ilk (Sword Art Online included). But the dark themes in the trailer are something I really look forward to in my seinen shows. Throw in the romance sub-plot and you have me hook, line and sinker. I love the gritty art style of this show which is signature Madhouse. I can’t wait!
It’s not that easy to figure out what’s going on from the trailer, but this looks like it might be a show worth checking out. I’m a little turned off by what looks like an attempted rape / assault, but it’s hard to tell where that would go. That’s something that can be left out of my anime, thanks.
