So we have a bunch of strongly contrasting characters adventuring and overcoming
different dangers together, all in the business of selling guns. The story concentrates
on the child soldier in the group -
When a crazy weirdo like me says "awkward" I believe it carries some weight. If I
try to pinpoint the awkward then I stumble upon the logic. It has a strange logic
this anime. Examples should serve plenty: Not to spoil too much, but at one point
I know that the creators are trying to show how crazy everyone is, including adding odd behavior and dialogue, but it feels like they haven't got it quite right yet. It's like a normal person trying to impersonate a crazy person. I feel more can be done with the ideas at hand and the "crazy" can be better.
Nonetheless, the sound effects and the animation are great, with the style scales tipped just slightly away from the Japanese style and towards more Westernized mature animation along the lines of Ghost In The Shell (very vaguely along the lines though), which can be both a plus and a minus depending on what you like. Add to it slight hints of straight shota and yuri and you got yourself an interesting anime.
*UPDATE: So far the 2nd season of this anime has been much more coherent. I like where this is going...
