What type of show is it?
To best explain it, this show is Bill Nye the Science Guy Meets the Flintstones. This show is easy to watch and quite enjoyable. While its source material was a Shonen Jump manga, it isn’t the same battle manga we are used to. Building and planing ahead is very critical for this show. Giving a vibe of mad scientist (re)starts civilization
Is it a Hidden Gem?
Being a character focused anime that turns out to be like a comedy about science, being both realistic and so over the top at times that it’s unrealistic, all at the same time. To put simply, it’s a different type of show. It is well written and fun to watch.
A True Gem!
An Anime Worth going out of your way for, even likely to be enjoyed by some who isn’t normally into the setting.
