Well, that was certainly… bizarre.
They did do an excellent job at establishing the villain. What an evil bastard. I’m amazed that no one sees through his schemes, but whatever.
I also like the rapid pacing. This doesn’t seem to be your average shounen with long, multi-episode fights. Hopefully it’ll keep up the pace, although honestly, they could probably stand to slow down a bit.
My only complaint is that the animation seems as if they took a comic book and plopped it right down in the middle of the screen. I’m not sure if I like it. It is unique, though.
