NOAH’s review published on Letterboxd:
I had heard about how good this anime was, and I am so glad that it lived up to all the hype. I was truly blown away by the storytelling and how they told this story, it starts as an intriguing science fiction action story about the world being attacked by the alien creatures. Which is exciting on its own. But it evolved in to this truly compelling personal drama about these damaged individuals trying to understand their purpose in life. The themes in this was something so unexpected but it’s explored in such a poignant and powerful way that the action becomes an afterthought.
That combined with the gorgeous animation and beautiful music just made this a truly thrilling and wonderful experience that I cannot wait to revisit in the future. Also, really looking forward to watching the movies as well!
