Mabuchi Kyouma is a man living in the past that works as a collector. Collectors confiscate illegal coils ( an energy source ). On one of his collections, Kyouma comes across an extremely human like android. Eventually, Kyouma, along with the android, Mira, and pushed by a thief named Loser, the mysteries surrounding Kyoumas past and Miras creation are revealed.
So… this is in my top 5 of the Winter 2016 season. That I’ve seen so far (32). And it’s there for a reason. It looks good, it sounds good, but most importantly, the story is good. It keeps you interested. The problem is, it isn’t very memorable. If you ask in 6 months, I’ll probably tell you it’s a cute robot girl and a Gintoki rip off going around fighting creepy looking things. If I even manage to remember that much.
Which upsets me. It’s one of the ones I was most looking forward to. It was certainly one of the more entertaining of the bunch. But nothing really stands out about it. At all. I mean, maybe the coils, but it’s not like they haven’t done anime with futuristic power sources before. And the characters have very little that make them unique. Kyouma is obviously older than the main characters in anime usually seem to be. Mira has a tail. That’s it really.
Would I recommend it? Probably only if you want to marathon through it. I watched it over about two months while it was airing. By time it was done, I forgot a lot of what happened earlier on. I can’t even remember how it went from what seemed like kind of a cute comedy/mystery type thing to a serious, is everyone gonna die? Type thing.
