| Worst anime ever? Probably
I do love a lot of anime, but I really hated Roots Search. The voice cast do an okay enough job with what they got, which is not much admittedly, but they aren't enough to save the movie especially when everything else fails abysmally. The animation is pretty much awful, the backgrounds are static, the colours are flat and the designs of the characters are downright ugly and bizarre. The music also feels like it belongs in a different movie and feels dated, the dialogue is inane, the pacing is glacial and plodding and the plot is incomprehensible with phony philosophising and an inconclusive ending that makes you think that's it? The characters are also underdeveloped and difficult to emphasise with. In conclusion, a really awful film with next to no redeeming qualities. 1/10 Bethany Cox
