I don’t mind admitting that the opening scene in ep1 is intriguing; the protagonist being released from prison and seen to be some big-shot/popular figure whom even the wardens can’t seem to do much against her– concept which, while isn’t anything original, is pretty interesting. After all, most of time, in films, the ones who get such treatments are either the Big Bad or the Anti-Hero. Then we have the storyline about political conflicts intersecting and affecting the already complicated issue of saving the environment. I know it’s from GONZO, and I’ve had issue with lots of GONZO’s productions – GONZO simply isn’t on my list of fav studios. Nevertheless, the premise seemed interesting enough and yes, based on the first few eps, it really is not bad and has plenty of potential. The only problem is whether GONZO is able to come up with a captivating storyline. After all, the premise is potentially quite messy and my impression of the studio is that they aren’t very good in handling complex storyline and worse at handling the endings of their productions(in which I get reminded by the way Gankutsuou ended being rather pathetic even if I don’t compare it to the novel). Will probably be placing it on my list of will be watching shows, to watch on a leisurely pace rather than faithfully following it weekly (like FMA and K-ON).
