Episode one ended up being meh to me. It was all style but there were no substance of it's own to keep me excited compare to this jacket's predecessors, which might explain those pointless callbacks from the older shows and noteworthy movies. (don't get me started on the music). Another thing I'd like to point out is, Rebecca is an annoying character and I hate her already. She is nothing more to me but a mary-sue duplicate of fujiko with blond hair, and will probably hold back the full potential of this show if she continues to behave this way. On the plus side of her character, atleast Rebecca isn't a egotistical, melodramatic buzz-killer like Oscar, but that's not saying much because by the end of it all they're both irritating. And lastly, everything else was spent on talking and exposition, too much enough for me to not care anymore. The animation, the intro and the short action is the only credit I can give right now.
Overall, boring episode. 4/10
