Truthfully you dont know whats going on in the first episode of Karas, but I’m not saying that’s a bad thing!
I watched this anime just a while ago and I was mind boggled with what I’m seeing. The opening battle scene is immense using CGI to its fullest potential without being shiney and unrealsitic compared to the background. The music is intense and the intro and outro themes are a well suited balance to see the brighter side of a dark world.
The first episode introduces us to this world and a man named Karas, or is Karas the circular clock/eye he holds within his hand? Anyway, he uses this to transform into some sort of fully armored fighting machine, but it’s not a mecha anime in the sense of Gundam etc, its actually believable in a ‘nowadays’ situation with some twists on reality.
Animation is very much based on the whole mechanics of The Matrix with slow downs in time and such but I believe that with progression of each episode we will understand why this happens.
Overall I would say YOU MUST watch this if you have 25 minutes of your life to spare!!!
Animation = great
Sounds = great
Character Design = great
