Hamatora The Animation
Boy, this is way too familiar. It’s almost like I was watching Darker than Black, which is quite similar in more ways than one. Still, I like it a lot. I think Hamatora showed a lot of promise and I’m quite looking forward to the rest.
I’m quite pleased about the artwork. The details look great, the characters look great and the powers that I’ve seen so far are all great, too. So far there’s nothing that I would have changed about the artwork to be very honest. Nothing at all.
The story is the only thing I’m worried about. It’s done before, you know? A group of ‘special’ people that people can hire at reasonable prices. Pay them and they will do almost anything, even though they themselves are being hunted on. It just sounds all too familiar, and I’m not just talking about Darker than Black anymore.
I will recommend this. It’s packed with action and mystery and lots of characters with lots of awesome superpowers. You’d be a fool if you didn’t try it out. At this point I don’t even care if some characters are overpowered or not. I just want to learn a little bit more about their powers and what they have to do to use them.
