Hhhmmm…to be honest here, I’m pretty disappointed with this movie. Like, really? The first half of the series was a recap of the series. wut?
I don’t need any recap. I just wanted a sequel to the series.
And what do I get? 40 minutes of original content. Only 40 minutes. It felt like a 2-episode arc on a series. WTF man. If I had watched this on theatres, I might’ve rant so crazy.
After the recap, of course, I was expecting to be blown away by the main premise of the story but I got the opposite. True, I would admit the main story of the movie was interesting, but it was wasted. It was too rush, and there was so many things going on I sometimes can’t even follow anymore. I also had so many many questions left unanswered. After the movie, I was dumbfounded, bruh.
It feels like there is a big big time gap between the series (as seen in the recap) and the main story of the movie. Like, why was the wheelchair girl regain her freakin’ legs?!?! That was totally random!! Who is this little shrine maiden girl?!?! Was there an untold alliance between the black & red faction?!?! What!?!?!? and many many more.
As a fan of the series (I haven’t read the light novel), this movie was a total disappointed. I cannot fathom how much I dislike watching this movie.
I think the only good thing I could compliment about this series was the art & animation. Well, its freakin’ Sunrise production movie, its always good. The fight scenes was visually appealing. That’s the only positive thing I could say.
Overall, this anime movie was a disappointment. I’m not really sure if this premise can be found in the light novels, if it is, this movie was then for the fans of the light novels and not much on the anime fans (like me T_T ).
I am still hoping for a proper sequel to the series.
Thanks for reading.
That is all.
