What is this even…: Gunslinger Stratos

Hey all…

Game origin, anime ran for 13 ep, with the last ep being splitted into possible endings.

Storyline is a mess. The concept and setting was ruined by the blotched storyline. The pacing is so unsteady and the character development is as close to zero. Because most of the people who watched this most likely has no idea what the game is about, they shouldn’t make such a deep intro which confuses things a lot that it make us think that it doesn’t make sense. Climax felt dampened due to me not knowing what really happened for the past 10 eps. Ending was very off, even with both endings. Overall, a literal torture watching this one. Very disappointing, Urobutcher was involved with the planning, I can tell that they are trying very hard to make the story very dark, but it’s pretty crappy execution.

Animations by A-1. Absolutely disappointing, they skipped a lot of keyframes during combat. The transitions are choppy and the characters looked extremely distorted. Character designs is a hit and miss for me. Colors were vivid.

Music is nice. OP and ED were well done, BGMs were great, quite wasted on such a show.

Cast list is nice though. Nishida Masakazu, Kanemoto Hisako, Abe Atsushi, Nishigaki Yuka, Koyasu Takehito, Mochizuki Rei, Hayami Saori, Ohara Sayaka, Hoshi Soichiro, Mizuki Nana, Fujita Akane, Sawashiro Miyuki, Koyama Rikiya, Ueda Kana, Ise Mariya, Kobayashi Kumiko, Fujita Saki. All of them did well, its just the dialogue being weird.


Story: 5.5/10

Art: 6.5/10

Music: 8/10

VAs: 7/10

Highly NOT recommended. Its a land mine.
