Aoki Hagane no Arpeggio: Ars Nova: First Impression

This first impression is still SPOILER FREE! It doesn’t go beyond the things said in the Synopsis! However I still would recommend to watch the episode before reading this since it will make things a bit clearer (I am not gonna give a summary!)

Aoki Hagane no Arpeggio First Impression Iona

She probably is the only reason I am gonna be going on to watch this show…and the concept!

This Anime is something I had on my Radar for quite some time, even though I didn’t think of it really often, I was pretty intrigued in how this world was going to work and well…let’s say I’m a little disappointed. This show, so far has done nothing to actually grip me. The world seems a lot more boring than it is and the only thing that actually caught my interest so far is the ship itself, since the main characters seems to be pretty dull and the other characters didn’t have any screen time yet. That said I am still kind of looking forward to the next episode, for the most part though that is due to me hoping that it is going to be better. I also think I saw quite some CG-Animation, not only in the foreground but also in the background, which kinda annoyed me as I am not a big fan of CGI if it is done badly and that’s what happened in this episode. In total the episode really didn’t do a good job in introducing the viewer to the world and characters even though it still seems quite interesting.

Score: 5,5/10
