Hopefully these Coppelion reviews should go by quickly; this level of script is easy to review.

Opening. Muted karaoke fits a muted OP. Good choice, EveTaku.
Ending. Usually I’ll only label karaoke as great if a group does something out of the ordinary that makes me really think of karaoke of as an artform. But here, EveTaku merely had to match every expectation I had. The colors perfectly matched every scene and the kfx only provided value to the font and color scheme. Fantastic job.
Solid, solid typesetting. Everything was done that needed to be, even the ridiculous maps.
I would hope not.
I think you mean “broken”.
As opposed to another wolf shooting it?
Resistance to what? Yeah, I know Japan censored the script, but you can play along without writing like your brain’s been replaced by a tumor.
“Our bodies have a strong resistance to this environment.”
Don’t. Do. This.
lol z. It’s called spellcheck, morons. Aegisub has it built in.
Gotta love arbitrary capitalization standards.
Why didn’t you translate “ダテ”?
Don’t, use commas, for every, pause, in a, sentence.
I, uhh… Did you mean “heart”?
Most children do.
Excuse me, but what?
Visual grade: A
Script grade: C+
Overall grade: B
The visuals are this release’s saving grace, which is a shame because I expected the script to be a lot better than it was.
Up next, we’ll see how Anime-Koi and Vivid handled this show. But first…! Sleep!

The Japanese censored the script? How?
No direct mentions of the nuclear disaster/radiation, which were present in the original. Clear implicit mentions though, like “The Coffin”.
Is this series any good? I don’t have any anime in my watch list. Walking Dead and Agents of Shield on top. Any suggestions, D_S?
Nah. Coppelion is terrible. Pick any other show airing this season at random and you’ll get something better 95% of the time.
I don’t know if the odds are that good, but you’re right, it’s not a great series.
I like it. It doesn’t have the best plot or characters, but it’s pretty good and the concept itself is decent. It’s also very pretty to look at and has a great voice cast.
“Compromize” looks like a non-American trying to American and failing.
Won’t be keeping up too well with these reviews. Wake me up when you get to a show that matters.
The poll should kick into effect Wednesday. Estimate 1.5 reviews/day and check the review queue to see how many groups are doing shit, then you can find the next time to check the site.
Awesome! Looking forward to it.
>asked that you keep doing your best
Only 8 comments? Need more controversy!
Coppelion shot JFK!
Well… I suck. ;___;
