For the duration of its time on air, Darling in the Franxx had a massive impact on the community. It was a pretty amazing show, but the quality of writing is flushed slowly down the drain shortly after episode 15. If you like this sort of thing, I'd definitely recommend that you buy- just don't get too excited for part two when it comes out.

(Apologies for the sarcasm in the headline- I guess I just felt like making fun of some of the people I've seen discussing it?...)

I love it

In For A Wild Ride

First few episodes is a slow start but you get to know the cast in these character focused episodes, and after we finally get some backstory of Zero Two.
Pros: The cast is all likable with a variety of personality interacting with each other and it's so easy to get attached to Zero Two's personality. The animation/soundtrack is beautiful. The story can throw curve balls with predictability or unpredictability but it leaves you hooked to learn more for the next episode. Cons: Not every character gets the spotlight, the fanservice is sometimes unnecessary, and the love triangle was very annoying to bear through. Not to mention we don't get to know much about the 9s.
As we reach towards the end of the story, while we do get a lot of world building, character development, and the final backstory to why things are left the way it is... the plot fell short and made no sense after the final 4 episodes.

One of a new generation of classics.


I think that this show is quite the ride (pun intended) I enjoyed every second of this show. The character drama, and the intertwining relationships was refreshing, sense I don't really see that much in anime anymore. I thought that they couldn't have done it any other way. The way that it ended was fantastic in my opinion, many people didn't like it, but loved it, sort of a new spin on old gainax Mecha shows, if that makes sense. I highly recommend this series to those that liked Eureka seven, evangelion, and Diebuster/gunbuster.
