Episode 03 (8/10 Great!)
The strain on Maria and Canaan’s relationship was great. I was afraid that, with so many characters, their relationship would be neglected. I also wasn’t counting on the boy dying to quickly. Which brings up some plot holes. How did they know Maria was Canaan’s friend? Did I miss something in the last two episodes? Regardless, to have Maria’s innocent perception of Canaan destroyed in such a tragic way can only be good for character development. A writer should never baby their characters; they’ll never grow and the drama will remain bland.
Bloody violence. The catgirls’ outfits are very revealing. The one catgirl takes off her shirt for Mino, who makes some comments then and later on that weren’t appropriate.
Character: 8/10 – Keep developing the ones that matter!
Writing: 7/10 – It’s interesting, though, not brilliant yet
Pacing: 7/10Enjoyment: 9/10

Episode 03 (7/10 Above Average)
This is going to be my favorite show this season – I can feel it! This episode, however, was a calm-before-the-storm episode, so not much happened. Episodes like this are used to get the characters from point A where something happened to point B where the next plot point will happen. All the same, they could have made this more interesting than it was. I keep expecting more panic from the crowds, like in War of the Worlds. I really feel for Mirai; I’ve walked all around New York in sandals, my feet bloody, too.
Nothing to worry about except scenes of destruction.
