Emotionless robots have magic powers and discuss philosophy.
While I think this show attempted to raise some interesting ideas… how is it possible to have such soulless characters? It felt like the animators and voice actors were ordered not to let the characters show the smallest iota of emotion. They are absolutely expressionless and speak as if they aren’t invested in their own lives in any way, shape, or form. It’s the strangest thing I’ve ever seen.
Aside from that, the story seems vaguely interesting, but it’s impossible to have any attachment to the characters, because the characters themselves are utterly detached. It’s like they’re discussing abstract philosophy with one another, not living out the intimate details of their own lives. I found watching this to be somewhat disturbing.
