Mardock Scramble: The Second Combustion

BASED ON 1 OF 1 EPS WATCHED
8 AUG
2013

What I Liked: Just as beautifully animated as the first. The set design for Paradise and Eggnog Blue. Great soundtrack. The character designs. The costume designs for the casino portion. Bell Wing.

What I Didn't: The middle third felt slow. The effects in the poker and the roulette scenes seemed over-the-top and dated. The constant egg references are starting to get stale. The abrupt ending.

Final Verdict: Noticeably more relaxed and less heavy than the first movie, this aesthetically pleasing sequel positions itself as less a Cyberpunk action flick and more a science-fiction drama. Which is great for character development, not so much for short attention spans and those distracted by dated "sciency" SFX.
