I had actually seen the OVA before this episode and planned to write something about it. I decided to wait a few weeks because I knew that this show would be airing this season. I must say that I’m a tad bit disappointed.
I have to be honest and say that I haven’t read the manga (or whatever this is based on). My first impressed is that it looks okay, even though I am not at all excited about those cockroach guys. They all look the same and I honestly think that that’s just really uninspiring and lazy.
I have very little complaints about the story. The artwork is what I have issues with. The story is alright. It’s pretty unique and filled with horror and drama. Still, I wouldn’t want to see many more than thirteen episodes maximum of this.
Horror and sci-fi fans might like this sort of thing. I for one am not sure about it. I might actually skip this one. It is incredibly censored, the enemy is just dull and I honestly cannot see myself watching a lot of these episodes. This could’ve been great if there was a variety of enemies and if the censoring wasn’t so severe.
