YES. Omg, Fall 2008 is like rockin my fuckin socks this year. I already think this series is brilliant, just as I predicted. I love madhouse studios <333
First and foremost: The animation. Oh my fuckin gawd, the animation. Amazing amazing amazing. There was SO much detail in Ringo’s feet, hand movements, and facial expressions. Not to mention the fighting scenes were extremley detailed and VERY hardcore. I love the 70’s art style with modern animation, it works together so perfectly. It looks a LOT like Cyborg 009, which is why I decided to watch this series in the first place. Might I add that Casshern is friggin SEXY. OMG, if this series keeps up, I might obsess over Casshern more than Lelouch XDDD
There are a BUNCH of questions I have that are just tempting me to see the next episode. First off, what’s the deal with Casshern’s flashy suit? Well… his flashy suit is what got me interested in this series, but I awnt to see if it has any real symbolic impact on the series. Second, who is Luna and why was it such a big deal that Casshern killed her? I really want to get more background on her so that the whole "KILL CASSHERN" thing makes deeper sense. AND THAT GIRL WITH THE PINK HAIR. Did they mention her name in the first episode o_o;;? Ah well. I really wanna know her relation with Casshern…. why she hates him and wants to kill him. Oh gawd, I also wanna know why Casshern doesn’t remember anything about himself :O~!!!
So yeah, this episode was great. The whole scene with Ringo and Casshern really touched me, it was just so kawaii!! Too bad, I highly doubt that Ringo will appear again throughout the series, but who knows :P I also want to know more about the world that Casshern is, along with the society. Makes me wonder how that’s gonna work out :P Ah gosh, I really want to see the next episode x3 ~!!!
Episode Score: 8.8/10
I have VERY high hopes for this series <3
