I’m in love with this series. It may be my secret desire to have a secret power that no one else has that I can use to save the world…but I can’t help it, I love it. Yes it’s kind of silly at times and maybe even perhaps, lame…but in my opinion the rest of the show outweighs the lameness.
Like I previously mentioned, I’m a sucker for the super human powers coming together to save the world. Oddly enough, I’m not a huge fan of superheroes though…go figure huh? Anyways, this show has more of a, dare I say, X-men feel to it. Instead of mutants we have Attractors, people with special powers that are awakened at various times in their lives and are controlled by emotions…okay so that sounds lame but it’s really not as touchy feely as it sounds. The main character, Quon, is bound and determined to find all of the Attractors and save them from themselves, as well as the antagonist group, Custos. Custos is made up of some pretty shady guys that use cyborgs to eliminate Attrators. The cyborgs retain some of their human emotions and thoughts from their previous lives but really only live to serve Custos. It’s a pretty simple good vs. evil plot to begin with but the secrets from Quon’s past and the real intentions of Custos begin to show in the later episodes and really add some depth to the story.
Way too cool. It may be that I haven’t seen a lot of good animation lately, or it really could be that this series has fantastic animation…either way, I was blown away. I’m pretty sure my jaw dropped the first time I saw Quon fight…and every time after that. I love the animation they use for his fighting style; it’s really obscure yet precise. So far, the other Attractors don’t have a ton of animation to go along with their powers so they haven’t been too impressive, but the cyborgs have a similarly interesting fighting style/animation like Quon.
Nothing way exciting. I wasn’t annoyed which is always good.
Quon could be the only character in the show and that would be just fine with me. I’ll admit it, I’m a sucker for the badass main character with a troubled past, but still he’s just way too cool. The other Attractors are pretty decent as well, none of them are deal breakers or bring the show down every time they appear on the screen and a couple of them have decent powers that may be pretty sweet in the future. So far, I like the bad guys as much as you can like the bad guys…and maybe a little more. A couple of them seem to be unhappy with their current situation and I could go for a cyborg rebellion of some sort, but honestly I’m just really excited to see where this series is going to go from here with all of the characters. Especially Quon. Definitely Quon.
Pretty high rating I know, but this is also just for the first 45 min episode of 5. It may get better or it may be just awful in the end, who knows? But I’m definitely excited to find out.
Another time, another review.
