Seventeen-year-old Emi Kaido hasn't seen her father in ten years. She lives alone and feels increasingly disaffected, challenging the world to kill her and feeling empty when her daredevil behavior doesn't "pay off". All of that is about to change when she meets four heroes from alternate earths. When their worlds were eliminated by an evil man known only as “Z”, they instead came to Emi's, and together they determine to stop the destruction.
There will be some spoilers later, but I'll try not to go overboard. I gave the story a 4 because it really felt like a copy paste story. Really the story seemed like they were trying for a safe approach to showcasing the animation. Now, going into this I was sceptical because the animation was 3d. 3d anime rarely have even acceptably passable graphics to them, so I tend to avoid them. Since I'd watched most everything I planned on watching from this season I decided to give this anime a go. I was surprised that the story was more of a reason to want to drop it than the animation was. Granted, if you compare the animation to video games that have 3d you'll notice that this seems a bit dated, but still better than most 3d anime. Anyway, here's the part where I start in on the general plot. If you don't want any spoilers turn back now. If you continue, I'm going to try to dramaticize the WTF points of the plot to give you a reason to check it out to see wtf i'm talking about. So this is an anime about one girl's daddy issues and how she saved the world thanks to those issues. No, really. In the end she even goes off with the father figure super hero to go help him protect his world. I digress. Her dad abandoned her when she was a kid so she started living a nearly suicidal life. Turns out, this is bad since every time she could have died her pop was destroying a world in order to prevent her from dying. So one of the heroes in one of the alternate worlds kicks the sun out of her dad's hands, it travels across dementions, and pierces his daughter's chest then turns into a giant pencil. The heroes fight her daddy's henchmen (the pervert, the vampire, and the lovable... wtf ever he was supposed to be) and beat them a couple times. Daddy and daughter "meet" and the daughter eventually caves in to her daddy issues and gives her daddy back the pencil which turns into a sun again. Yay more destroyed worlds. Heroes disappear, daughter forgets them, once again she meets with daddy and opposes him. Heroes pop back into existance, they kick daddy's rear end, the day is saved. The heroes go home. The girl saves a kid and gets splatted by a truck. or would have if she didn't get teleported to the side of a building so she could have a short conversation with the daddy figure hero and then he takes her to go help him save his world, the end.Almost sounds interesting, right? Like I said earlier, these are all the points I found interesting dramaticized to make you go wtf and be interested in watching, because it really is worth a watch, if for no other reason than to promote better 3d animation (still heart broken by berserk). However, the whole thing has the same feel as most female protag surrounded by hot guy anime. If that's your thing you might enjoy this more than I did, but the fairly typical female protag and the very cliched lineup of guys for the heroes mixed with an evil parent and stranger in a new world (felt really similar to Re:Creators in ways) thing just didn't cut it for me.
(SPOILERS) I have never watched an anime/ plot like this before so it was definietly something different. At the beginning it was very bland and I almost dropped it twice, but decided to proceed. I really am happy I did finish it! The female mc had some major character development and I'm so happy about that, though I simpathise with her alot. I also simpathise with her father and feel sorry for him, watching your daughter die over and over.. I dont know what to say but that must've been traumatic. I can imagine myself if I was a parent wanting to keep my child safe and out of harms way (AND HAPPY!)- but i would not destroy over worlds like he did :O Overall, it was a good watch. My favourite character was Ken as he was like a father figure to Emi, I really did love that relationship and the moments they had. In episode 11, where they almsot killed Ken I was thinking to myself "I really just watched this for my favourite character to just die.. great!" but I'm happy he didn't. Sad though, that they left it on an ending that could've lead to a potential season 2 - it would've been nice to see what help Ken needed in his world. That green 'monster'? character was pretty sweet too and I did feel sorry for him- he definetly deserved a better ending.
