What type of show is it?
Reading the premise if you think this was all action then your be a bit off. It has a strong focus on post war and survival. Many times the focus will be on Ainu culture, hunting, eating and surviving. You also have a very bizarre sense of humor that somehow just agrees with the show although I myself can’t see myself enjoying the kind of humor normally.
Is it a Hidden Gem?
The strongest point of this show is how the characters are done and how well they work off of one another. You’ll also find someone who seem like an extra may end up being a key person while another who seem important end up being less so. Anything is possible with this show. The animation is a bit poor but almost fits once you get used to it.
Rating : A Shinny Gem!
An Anime Worth going out of your way for, Easy liked but being so different will drive some people away.
