The world has ended. So how do you solve this teeny little problem. By wounding up the world like it’s a clock that’s what!. Civilisation are rebuilding their lives on a world filled with large gears like structure. Humanities lives depend on the structures built, as they are the life source for their survival.
So enter Naoto Miura. A highschool boy and an inspiring clock-smith. He can work out whats wrong with a clock just by listening really carefully. However his ratio on fixing clocks are very slim to none. He’s also alone, without any friends. However that all changed when a military box with a beautiful girl, who is also an automaton drops in on him. Her name is RyuZU.
RyuZU is the automaton that is saved by Naoto. If you’ve played Nier; automata, then basically that’s what RyuZU is. An automaton that is dressed in a steam punk, gothic dress. And calls Naoto her master. And she is very devoted to him.
There is another character: Marie Bell Breguet. She comes from an esteemed family of clockwork engineers. However she looks like a little girl, with a bodyguard called Halter. And she is a geniuses.
I was hyped to see this show. However I’m slightly disappointed, as the show started….really damn slow. And maybe I’m tired or something but I’m struggling to keep an interest in it. The second episode fills in on the first episode, or rather it gives some backstory as to how Marie, Halter, Naoto and RyuZU teamed up.
To be honest the anime reminds me of a game called resonance of fate; a Sega RPG that came out at the same time as FF13. And it wasn’t polished as FF13 is. The game is set on a world where the inhabitants live on massive clock gears, sound familiar?.
As stated above, a steampunk-esqe adventure awaits however that adventure seems to struggle in keeping my attention. As usual fripside do a nice OP. The art is solid so far. A crying shame about the story, maybe it will pick up further down the line. I’ll continue to watch it, as I don’t mind a good steam punk adventure, however it won’t be as high on my watch list as it now stands (dropped down from my line-up list).
For me, the first impression of this anime:
