Karen Senki — First Impressions

A girl fights robots.

This reminds me a lot of RWBY. There’s clearly some inspiration there. It uses a similar style of CG, and also makes use of it through some excellent action sequences, much better done than you can get with traditional animation.

To compare it to RWBY:

  • The characters, particularly their faces, look more awkward.
  • The fights are less cool and don’t have as much motion.
  • So far there is only one character with much development, and she has much less of a personality.
  • There is no sense of humor.

So it doesn’t really live up to what I can only assume must be its inspiration.

Still, I’m intrigued enough that I’ll at least watch another episode. Assuming I remember.
