| "You're an idiot."
If you don't watch this series right now.

It is flabbergasting how an anime that is only 12 episodes long can leave such a profound impact upon closure. Everything in this series, from the contemporary manga style, sharp dialogue (thanks in part to an excellent English dub landing it on Netflix) and diverse themes to the very last haunting acoustic guitar riff that simmers on during the epilogue, is played pitch perfectly to create an instant classic.

The character writing in particular deserves a special credit, so Taku Kishimoto, eat your heart out. What this series does better than any is placing Satoru's character development at the eye of the storm; really honing in on the internal conflict and as a result, attaining an incredible level of focus that seems unrivalled in its medium. This does two things; 1) it creates an urgency to his actions beyond that achievable with an ensemble cast and 2) it makes us empathise the consequences, both good or bad, with a much higher stake. Together with the sardonic and razor sharp internal monologue, y'all better get your tickets to this masterclass in character writing.

Goes without saying, but the story and premise is all time. I reckon it's a series that'll leave you thinking about it for a while.

9/10

Notes:

"Did I say that out loud?" - a little overused. "Witch." - classic call. Hiromi is a dude.
