Shock! Horror! Talking staff! Does it work? I think it’s a masterful manipulation of mood, at least.
…something that looks like a combination of Bleach and Fullmetal Alchemist. This looks like the shounen action show with more style than substance, much like Black Cat. At least it’s easy on the eyes with some of the better character design in all the new season’s offerings.
No, it’s not a vastly impressive show that wows people or grabs them, shakes them, and then blow their senses away. But it’s effective, emotional and yet restrained, sad and yet hopeful. What seems weak can actually be strong.
