Oh look, the anime. Which anime? Clockwork Planet. I really don’t have much to say. This was just a big disappointment and a general waste of my time. Horrible characters, barely entertaining if at all plot, weird humour sense, art and animation that is below average, blah blah blah. This anime felt as if it was made for children, not something for general consumption. Whelp, more details in the stats and ratings below.
Stats at the end of run(for me):
Art: 3-8/10: Ending animations are godly, rest are absolute garbage.
Music: 8/10: Can’t actually fault this here. The soundtrack, opening and ending songs are all really nice, and the VAs didn’t do much wrong.
Story: 2/10: watisthis
Comedy: 0/10: Would have accepted the comedy if it was a 90s sitcom, not a 2017 anime.
SOL: 0/10: Oh hey look its people living like normal AS IF THE PLANET WASN’T MADE UP OF CLOCKWORKS! I wonder why?
Naoto: 5/10: Your typical light novel protagonist with an overpowered ability but wastes it on getting girls. Nothing really wrong here but really not an interesting character either.
RyuZU: 7/10: You know you are doing something wrong when a robot AI made from clockworks is more interesting than your other characters.
Marie: 2/10: She’s got some thing going for her including several interesting mysteries behind her background and the way she acts, but of cause it won’t get explored. Instead, we were given a typical anime tsundere.
Halter: 0/10: Where can I purchase my own typical robot body guard?
Overall: 5/10: Come on now, if you are going to adapt a story co-authored by Kamiya Yuu at least make it decent please… not trample all over fans’ feelings with trash like this. I came here for the story, left because the story was shit. And it just so happens that the light novel was received really well so where did it go wrong? Need I say more?
