What exactly have I done to deserve something like this? I honestly cannot imagine that there are many people that like this 2.5D stuff. It looks weird.

Karen SenkiI honestly can’t see a lot of good about the artwork. I wouldn’t dare to call it a budget product. Stuff like this isn’t very easy to make, but it doesn’t change the fact that I find it very weird to see. I am not at all a fan of 2.5D anime.

As for the story, well… No idea. I can’t criticize it because I honestly don’t know what it’s about. I just got the image of a couple of girls trying to survive in a very rough world. That’s about it.

Could I ever recommend something like this? Not really. For me to recommend a 2.5D anime… That happens very rarely. Knights of Sidonia, which looks rather similar, was one of those rare exceptions. But this… No, sorry.

Plot Summary: In the post-apocalyptic aftermath of a war between machines and their creators, machines rule while humans exist in a state of servitude. Titular character Karen leads Resistance Group 11, an eclectic group of humans who find themselves fighting for their lives as they are hunted by the robots in each episode. Is this the end of humanity? Are they fighting a losing battle?

Through Karen, we delve into a struggle between right and wrong, between indifference and love that explores some of the deepest questions about humanity. What is the difference between a thinking machine and a human being? What is a soul?
