My goodness, this anime was very edgy, to the point I ended up dropping it. Usually if it's a seasonal anime, I try to see it through to the end, but in this case, there wasn't anything that was keeping me around to watch it. It wasn't even so bad that it was good. When I was watching it, I was just disgusted with the different acts that were portrayed, nothing else caught on. With the story and characters, majority of the existing characters, to the point I had watched to, were just absolutely awful, and by that, I mean that they weren't likable or good. Everyone wanted to kill the other. It was to the point that there was so much death and other things I won't bother mentioning, that all of it began to lose any significance and instead just turned into something edgy. Nothing felt like it had meaning or emotion within it. The anime, Code Geass is sort of similar to this anime in terms of revenge and death, yet Code Geass was able to portray this in a much more meaningful way, such as showing the consequences of the death on the people and Lelouch's remorse. Yet for this, from what I watched, there wasn't any sort of thing. There was just people mindlessly dying and that's about it. Even not counting the dying, there were many, graphic scenes to say the least that just seemed to be there for the reason of it being brutal and terrible, yet not adding anything to the plot or characters. It all felt meaningless and just edge for the sake of it. With animation and sound, they were not very good, mostly the animation, especially as the anime continued on. There were many awkawardly animated scenes, where either the characters were drawn in a very off way or the animation didn't flow well. None of it felt captivating. Beyond that, I really don't have much to say about this anime. I don't recommend it. The characters weren't likable, the story wasn't interesting and the animation was not very good. It was overflowing with just brutality for the sake of it, and in my opinion, far too much of it, to the point that I had to drop it. Therefore I don't think very highly of this anime.
