BNA

Animals are cute! I blasted through this show over 3 days and it just kept ramping up. Pacing was exceptional and Trigger did a good job keeping emotional moments from becoming lulls in the action.

The best parts of the show was the character design, expressions, and voice acting. Every character is is just full of wacky faces and they aren't afraid to show it.

Story-wise, it kept me wondering if anything was a red herring, so I was definitely hooked on the mystery of Anima-City and the history of beastmen. Truth and misdirection was laid out in the open most of the time, instead of trying to force viewers into surprise moments.

The decision to make it a character led show turned out for the better. Even with its detective noir backbone, the show does not lean too heavily on that aspect.
