Living in a ninja residence tucked away in a corner of a futuristic city is Rikka, the eldest daughter of a Ninja clan, who looks up to her father—a researcher—very much. Carrying on with her life normally, Rikka's home came suddenly under attack one day. Driven into a corner, what would she do to overcome this crisis?
this would’ve been better if they didn’t Batman the main charectar( the whole no Killing thing), the main reason why is because it is not a full length episodal series. Certain moments when she first fights the telekinetic girl I understood but it’s so short tyhatvit hurts the story. But other than that I want to see more cause the main story and the characters are great and the world they inhabit. And because it’s an original I’m not sure it will get that sequel, just hope crunchyroll supports this like they do dr stone
Overall, it's okay. Bits and pieces of it sort of make it difficult to take seriously. In general the anime is okay. There's an actual story, which is nice given the amount of crap there is nowadays. The characters' motivations and behavior mostly make sense given the context, and the animation quality / choreography of fights is pretty superb. However, here are my issues with the movie, which in my opinion reduced its overall impact: ** SPOILERS FOLLOW ** MC lacks real depth. You never really feel any of the suffering she might've felt from watching her dad and grand-dad die in front of her. The activities she gets to and the way she behaves afterwards pretty much make her seem a rather normal, if not somewhat mischievous and intelligent teenager. Conveniently though when she's fighting she gets REALLY MAD about said trauma, so her whole past feels like more of a convenience than an actual part of her character. The story can't decide which conflict is the most important. See, we're given the impression that the animal drones themselves and the research of grandpa Isurugi are mind-blowing, world-changing knowledge that a huge war has erupted over. You'd think they'd be the central crux. Instead, it's just a convenient excuse to introduce why these people are fighting each other.The entire focus of the movie ends up on our enemy-turned-ally girl and her relationships with her dad and MC. There's nothing wrong with that in itself, but it became such a central focus that all of the intense fighting, cool choreography, cutting edge research & tech, etc., end up feeling really cheap. Was it really necessary to nearly fight to the death and destroy all these neighborhoods just to argue with your dad about being your own person? The animal drones are comically human. Further diminishing the seriousness of this conflict is just how little of a role the drone animals play. I think it'd be a cool topic to explore - that is, this idea that robots would also have personalities, desires, morals, etc. - but rather than exploring that, the animal drones are just bratty teenagers with sassy personalities in metal animal form and have cool high-tech capabilities. Oh, and they're like handy gadgets mid-battle. There's no conflict surrounding them. They're never the focus of any character development. You never feel any kind of attachment or concern for them.Again, doesn't add much to the story; they're just there as utilities. There's so much potential here wasted. The way the movie ended gave strong hints towards one or more sequel movies. But I'm not at all interested in finding out what happens next. Maybe I'll check them out if I'm bored one day.
The movie all together was alright. Nothing seemed to stand out whether it be good or bad. The animation for the fight scenes were good, however I’ve always had a problem with mixing 3D and 2D animation such as the mech creatures. The characters were alright too. Their personalities were average and so was their character designs. But I think the plot is the worst issue. There were many things that seemed to not contribute to the story. This includes the bird and squirrel robot. I understand that the robots helped Rikka with her character development, but that could have been easily done with just the dog robot. The plot yet again didn’t have anything that stood out to be unique or original. But overall, I wouldn’t say it’s bad. It’s one of those movies you watch when you are bored and have nothing else to do.
