This original net animation is based off some trading card game, however forget all of that and allow us to speak strictly of the anime here. As the episode begins, we’re engulfed immediately into a realm of intense action – an ongoing battle between two with a mechanically outfitted appearance. Although they fight, they seem to have a deeper intimate past as the darker suited one blasts a hole through the other’s hollow breast.
The blond haired bishoujo begins to be dragged away unconsciously by her fate. At certain points, she seems to either be tiny, or amongst a world of giants – however, we find out well the truth soon enough.
Her scene concludes and another starts anew – one which follows an average kid, he’s not your typical highschool male protagonist, nor does his personality come off as conventional. He’s walking home from school, and as we learn, he’s a transfer student – either for this, or another unspecified reason, he’s exiled by his peers who seemingly ignore him with crude disgust.
Our hero begins wandering off in the midst of his seeming loneliness, he comes across a hobby shop and notices some spectacular anime figures through the shop’s window – yet he also sees his unwelcoming classmates further through the shop’s glass and continues to walk off.
As night falls, he comes across an interesting entity indeed – the blond haired female from before is seen settled in rest on a tree, as it turns out, she’s an anime figurine. Seeing the poor condition she is in, our lead instantly begins to sympathize with her – prompting the start of a beautiful relationship. The episode then cuts to a final confusing scene of mech robots and the earlier female attacker before ending its first round.
The concept as of these mere five minutes comes off as completely captivating, creative, and meaningful – though it is simple, emotions were developed enough to understand the perspective of the kid main character, whilst also driving our interests in the mysterious injured figure female. It is also quite nice that the story seems to be one unorthodox yet relatable – it doesn’t follow anything of the expected overused pool of stories so-far, however it’s very own imaginative plot is one which can find its place in the hearts of many viewers.
An excellent start for what seems to be a great series.
