I’m having a bit of difficulty rating this one properly. On one hand, it was very pretty, stylish and had a good, fairly creative storyline and characters. On the other hand, at times the style felt a bit overdone (like in the first still-frame-scream in episode one) and some of the characters felt incredibly shallow in comparison to an otherwise great cast.
If I had to give a rough summary of my enjoyment while watching this, admire my paintskills:

So ye, as you can see, it kinda jumped up and down. While the story itself was really enjoyable, the focus was too often on characters I couldn’t care about in the least. Still a good and interesting watch, but hardly the epic story I expected it to be.
