Another familiar series for me. I’ve read some of the manga and I find this series interesting. It takes place in a near-apocalyptic world where humanity is trying to survive against the mysterious enemy known as the Gastrea. The main character Satomi Rentarou is a member of a group of humans that fight the Gastrea along with his partner Aihara Enju, a girl who has Gastrea blood running within her. This first episode mostly introduced the Gastrea and the setting. Not all that much else to it.
I’d say my main concern while reading the manga was that Rentarou always seemed so useless that it felt odd that the show centered around him. I guess we’ll see how that plays out in the anime form. So far, it looks like the anime will follow the first arc I read in the manga. I haven’t gone much further than that, so that will be the limit of my knowledge. That being said, the music makes a pretty strong case for the show, especially the ending theme. Here’s hoping it turns out well.
