Deca-Dence Review — B+

I’m not sure how to summarize anything useful without spoiling it.

But, I really liked this show! It took me in directions I didn’t expect it to go, and at least for the first half totally betrayed my expectations time after time. It’s a very creative premise and setting despite being in a genre we’ve seen over and over again.

My biggest complaint was with the ending. I felt like it was baselessly optimistic and cheerful. This is probably more a complaint on the state of the world at the moment and the seemingly insurmountable power and ruthlessness of global capitalism than it is anything to do with Deca-Dence.

  • Storytelling – A – Took unexpected directions and constantly surprised me.
  • Voice – A – Cool setting.
  • Characters – B – Pretty interesting!
  • Attention Grab – B – Kept my interest.
  • Production – B – Looked good. Was surprised how well the combination of the two character types worked.
  • Overall – B+

Recommendations – Dennou Coil, Planetes
