Wow, I didn’t know this one has been on Youtube for a couple of months already. Hats off to those of you who have already seen it and have been panting for yuri for a couple of months…I mean been anticipating some great drama and friendship issues. Anyway, I just watched it and here are my thoughts.
I can see the color is quite bright even though they tried to tone that down a little. CG colors are never muted, dull or earthy. In any case, a little bit of Makoto Shinkai nostalgia in the colors and background, and I also got the vibe of Eva and Rahxephon from it. The shots remind me of preview animations for large-scale graphical novel games. Actually the setting itself reminds me of Sci-Fi graphic novel games for some reason. Anyway, it looks like it will have some serious introspections and reflections. But we also get that huge space battle ship.
There’s a good but lonely feeling emanating just from the preview. This definitely looks like it’s going to be a thoughtful show.
I’m looking forward to the yuri and other elements. Let me know what you think.
