I think Youtube commenter GreenFont said it best:
I watched this anime and I can say it’s like a bad wank,
It looks like it’s going to be good but it takes a while to cum and then you barely feel it;.
I saw this at one of the Northampton Ayacons, 2002’s I think. It was interrupted by the fire alarm going off, which was almost a relief as I was at risk of being bored into a coma. Technically it’s a fine a show, but good lord, it is some ponderous piffle. Also feels like a show made with one eye on the US market, as it’s got pacing that struck me as very much like a sci-fi tinged drama you might find filling daytime schedules on E4.
