Z/X: Ignition

Yeah… I figured as much. My expectations for this one were really low. The story didn’t sound all too promising and the characters, at least the ‘normal ones’, didn’t look all that impressive. All in all pretty mediocre.

ZX IgnitionI think the artwork is the best thing about this show, and that says something. Only the “monsters” look great. I think the author put a lot of hours into making those. The rest just sort of lacks in comparison. It certainly could have used a little more detail…

Anyway, the story is just too strange. I had no idea what was going on half of the time and it was very hard to tell if we were watching the “good guys” or the “bad guys”. A story isn’t all that interesting or enjoyable when it’s this confusing. It’s not even that good a story to begin with.

I simply cannot recommend this. Like I said; I had no idea what was going on half of the time and I simply have no idea what I can expect to see in the near future. It just doesn’t look all that promising right now.

Plot Summary: The story is set in the not-so-distant future. Five “Black Points” suddenly appeared around the world as portals to parallel worlds. Immediately after, strange creatures began their invasion from these portals. These creatures are the inhabitants of five worlds—the same worlds in different timeframes. In order to ensure their own future timeframe survives, each of the five invasion forces battle to wipe the other future timeframes out. The key is one card-shaped device.
