Dark, philosophical sci fi done right
The series includes beautiful animation and detailed backgrounds. There is not an overabundance of action scenes, but when there are they are fluid and relevant to the plot. The violence is limited and there are few graphic scenes which makes watching it more accessible for younger audiences or those put off by images of excessive gore. The character designs are well thought out and stylish in a somewhat post-apocalyptic, Gothic fashion. The plot can be slow at times and some parts may require re-watching, but the concepts, themes, and vocabulary are thought-provoking. The characters grow on you, and there is always another mystery to be unraveled. I would recommend this series to anyone who enjoys the sci-fi or mystery genre and doesn't mind slow pacing at times and doesn't need everything to be explained fully.
The only series I have seen as of now that is similar to this series in nature is Casshern Sins, although I have read that it is comparable to Texhnolyze and Serial Experiments Lain.
