Thank you Accipiter
for posting......kinda glad you posted.
Yes....the animation for both cg and 2d were great, the water effects were really good and the music fitted it. I never really liked the OP but if I listened to it more, I might begin to enjoy it like I do with MELL's Red Fraction (OP of Black Lagoon) didn't like it at first but its now a song I love listening to, especially the G.M.S. Remix.
The ED was really good, I liked the animation for the ED too.
The thing that disappointed me was that it became a bit too political and at times realistic.......I didn't enjoy seeing her younger brother being forced into signing a confession to a murder he didn't commit but I'm glad they didn't get into it too much. I was delighted to see Kenji back at school by the end of the series and seeing his mother's grave but I can kind understand that to some point he loved his mother too much that began to hate her. Hence, why he got mixed up with bad company but was still great person as he literally sacrificed himself for his sister's safety.
Throughout the series, I just thought Rin was just a snotty b*tch but at the same time she just had this look that made her incredibly sexy.......she was gorgeous when she was dancing in her ballet atire.
I never warmed up to her character......actually none of the characters to be honest but Rin, Tamayo and Yoda (the reporter chick....her breasts were well-endowed).....they were sexy all in their own way somewhat.
Oh, so why I am typing ??
Its obvious of course, I watched episodes 7 to 12 in like 2 hours. It was good and I think I read one of the spoilers wrong because I thought Shouko was going to die but Shiziru died instead at episode 10......kinda glad that the spoiler was somewhat wrong because I was surprised by it.
It was sad that she died and didn't really see it coming, I didn't think any of them were going to die but then again seeing GGP's brutality in the past I don't think I should have thought that.
Overall, I'm giving this series a 7/10.
I did a little gaze at WIKI's RideBack page and seems that Shiziru was an anime-only character and also it looks like Rin's father is involved with the GGF.....its called GGP in the anime. It looks like the manga is like completely different to the anime adaption which is kinda annoying but refreshing as it makes me want to really read the manga but that looks doubtful unless I can get my hands on the RAWs that weren't scanlated, which is 9 volumes worth, since, only the 1st volume was ever scanlated.
