    I don't really care about Stan Lee, but I might give this a go because of Nagahama.

    Oh man, the animation was so.......lifeless, and butt, it was incredibly distracting. It's got a nice art style, but this fucking animation, eeeeergggh, EEEEEGGGGGGH. There's no, zero weight to anything.

    Then again, this is DEEN we're talking about.

    Other than that, I think I fell asleep this episode.

    The comic-book esque art style was interesting, but with Deen at the animation helm, it looked... Wonky.

    The storyline was also pretty lacking. It felt more like a drawn out teaser trailer than an episode.

    Sounds like one to skip, after all.

    Episode 1
    I'm only part way through this first episode and I'm so bored watching it -_-
    Everything is just off especially the animation like I know what they were going for but it seems so wrong.

    I've been waiting a while for this, with a hope that my main ALC pick won't be too boring, but guess I was wrong.

    But it's only the first episode, there is some hope....maybe.

    Episode 1
    They went for an animated comic book look, but ended up with an animated web comic. That one short bit of some song that kept playing over and over got stale real quick too.
    And I'm stuck with it.

    The animation is weird. I didnt mind the story, but the art just kept ticking away at my OCD. Its not as bad as Ajin's was, but it's still distracting when I try and watch this.

    My oh my. If you ever wondered how important audio is to a show then this is the one to showcase that, and that's not praise in its favour. The Reflection has awful audio composition. Everything sounded weak, for example a scene where a character punches a guy with a huge fist should have a sound that makes it sound like it had great impact. Instead it was like a little thump.
    And what is with the still frames? I understand a lot of anime use still frames and backgrounds to save time, but this show really emphasises this. Far too much lingering on some shots.
    The story itself would probably be fine if this wasn't such a technical car crash.

    That OP was the most laughable, and lazy ass budget piece of shit, I've seen. What a pathetic excuse for an OP.

    But the episode itself was the saving grace of the show right? Right? Please let it be so, I'm in for the whole show helping @Margrigas with his lottery pick!

    I think you're fucked. Hope you're ready for more sloooooooooooooooooooooooooow pacing, and shitty action scenes. I have no idea what they were thinking with this. Also, the site rating for this show is pretty beautiful: a grand 1.6 stars lol.....

    Episode 2
    Thanks for the retell of last episode, my dudes. The small tidbits of extra info were worth suffering through the poor speech animation and general crap that is Studio Deen sometimes.
    The urge to go to DragonCon just to punch Stan Lee is slowly growing stronger

    Why....why would you do this to me? OP is fail. This show really does deserve it's rating and probably worse. Glutton for punishment mode activated.

    Episode 3
    Opening still sucks.
    And I still can't get used to how boring and basic the animation is like I know what style they attempted to go for but no -_- Doesn't work.

    Also still bored.

    I would like to thank the ALC for giving me this extremely boring pick -_-

    Episode 2 felt like episode 1. I mean this in quite a literal sense as it reused a lot of the first episodes scenes.
    It still looks like shit.

    Episode 8
    At the beginning, with the rubble and general dispair around unknown-girl, I thought "This is Detroit, right?" hoping to be proven wrong and it was some impoverished unknown location... 10 minutes later, it's proven to be Detroit...

    Episode 10

    thank you comic-book cliche. Evil twins are always useful plot points.

    But uh.. Is Eleanor actually dead?
