Before I start into my first impressions, I will make a nod to the Utena anime and say with that, I will not expect much from this anime, and just wait and see. Why?
- In my book, Utena is my number one heroine, and nothing can compare to her.
- Utena is a series that is best enjoyed when fully completed and viewed as a whole. It also doesn’t grab you right away, but takes it time to build up. Basically, Utena doesn’t ‘Wham Bang Thank You Ma’am’ in the first five episodes, but rather takes you out for dinner, and then takes you home, and blows your mind over the course of the series. I expect this to be at its best near the end, and in a whole.
- I’m still rather letdown by and not expecting much from Bones.
So for now, I’m going to enjoy the ride. Not really that much to say, Stardriver opens with one hell of an episode that will hook people for the rest of the ride. It was a very wtfy episode in a good way, revealing enough story to understand what’s going on, but throwing in a lot of confusing things that you want to find out more about as well. They rest of the series could blow, and I think a lot of people would still watch to try to see if the first episode is ever explained. Me, I just want to see if they can pull it off. I know not everything will be explained, but I want to know what the full story will be.
I also like the main character. I don’t know why. He’s a type of character we’ve all seen before. He’s just puts a silly grin in on my face—and looks so damn hot in that suit. I think I also like his voice actor.
