This turned out to be incredibly morbid. I am not entirely familiar with one but I heard a lot of good things about it. Will I write about this one? Probably not. It is a little bit too dark for my taste. Would’ve been okay if there were some reason for it.
The artwork looks really good. No problems there. Two great studios are working on this and it clearly shows. The characters look amazing, de sceneries look amazing and it is overall incredibly detailed. That might not necessarily be a good thing when the show’s this graphic.
Even I cannot deny that, although the story is kind of dark, it certainly is unique. Humans are pretty foul creatures, capable of doing horrible things. To make something that reflects their true nature… Yeah, it’s going to be dark.
Do I recommend it? Sure, to horror fans. This is going to mess with your mind. If you like that sort of thing then go ahead.
