I just watched the series. Not entirely sure what I thought. I loved so much about it (the progression through the adversaries and them getting stranger was great, the deeply personal trauma amidst the increasingly complicated background goings-on), but there was stuff lacking in the execution maybe? Thinking back it feels like half of it sort of dragged, and then the other half was really rushed.
Very much fascinated ultimately, and honestly I think part of any disappointment I feel is because of all the expectation that had been built up.
I’ll have to check out the sequel film at some point!
Also obligatory mention of Pen Pen and also Asuka making that “EEEHH!?!” noise
