Opening. It’s sufficient.
Ending. Pretty good.
Goddamn sponsor screen bullshit.
They didn’t say “zed”; they said “zet”. Know how I can tell? It’s part of the fucking anime’s title. The opening line right here is retarded as well.
When the song is called “dots and lines” and one of the last lines in it references “dotted lines”, perhaps you’d think to translate this as “dotted lines” instead of “dead lines”…
ATTENTION STUPID FUCKS
ITS IS THE POSSESSIVE OF IT
IT’S MEANS IT IS
THIS IS HOW SHIT BREAKS DOWN
This is a question, isn’t it?
The event happened in the past, so guess which tense to use. No really, go ahead and guess.
I’ll give you a hint: it’s the past tense.
Do -> Did
What a mouthful of fail.
“If you want to figure out what he wants, you’ll just have to wait and see what he does.”
How do you not know how to use a question mark? Really, this is fucking first-grade shit. I’m not even fucking exaggerating.
Tenses are also fucking basic shit. “that thing” died, so use the fucking past tense when describing it.
“That thing wasn’t my brother or anything like that.”
His transformation doesn’t occur based on probability; it’s not like he’s walking around with a .01% chance at every second to transform. Rather, he has to hit 100%. So, it shouldn’t be “higher rate”; it should be “quicker rate”.
Visual grade: B
Script grade: B-
Overall grade (timing results not factored in): B-
It’s about as good as WhyNot’s version, but the visuals are definitely better here. Choose the release of whichever group you like better and you should get a similar experience.
