Megalo Box

Jul 13, 2018

This Anime reminds me of Cowboy Bebop, the style, music and characters. The story takes place in a dystopia where citizen ID is needed for most things. Megalo Box is a special kind of box that exists in this universe. Basically, it is boxing but the fighters may have a gear, that increases the overall efficency of the boxer. About the main protagonist, Junk Dog (Joe), gets to meet the viewer in some sort of illegal, underground place where Megalo Boxing is a favourite gamble game and from the start feel that Junk Dog is special. I feel like the idea of this is not that original but the story is cooperating well with the progress of their lifes and the plot. I find the story rather slow and sudden, some of the plot twists can be foreseen and that seems kinda annoying sometimes. As i said before, the Anime reminds me of Cowboy Bebop, specifically the animation style. (Also Kill la Kill was kinda familiar too imo) The 3D graphics (Mostly backgrounds) were really well combined with the rest, didn't seem off and was breathtaking at some points. Music was very fitting and sounded really nicely... the most i loved about it was how it could change the happenings of particular scenes and could get you into the action. Of course the characters weren't bad too and i have to say that character designers have done a really good job in this case, every single character was unique and had different but somehow similar personalities.

Overall, i really recommend watching this great piece of work :)
