Alice & Zouroku: EPISODE 1 IMPRESSION

This is the first time I have heard about this series and I quickly researched it up.
I have not read the manga as it’s not available in English as of this time but interestingly enough it’s coming out on August 7th in the UK.

Like most series I go in without reading much of the synopsis so I had no idea what I was getting my self into. Obviously I knew the studio behind it was JC Staff and that the director of the series Katsushi Sakurabi has worked on some series that I have enjoyed, even if it was just directing some episodes or storyboarding.

Just to point out that the first episode is 44 minutes long not that it matters but when I was watching it I felt that the episode was longer than it should be.
The first 10 minutes had a lot of action but I was slightly confused what was going on. When we got introduced to Zouroku, this is where I started to enjoy the flow of the episode and meeting that mysterious girl.

Animation to me was all right; it reminded me of the style of other series that I have watched. I’m not the biggest fan but I don’t dislike it. The CGI on the other hand during the car chase seen was sticking out like a sore thumb, unlike Attack on Titan S2 first episode. Now I personally don’t have the problem but I know majority of the people will probably complain on the CGI that was used.

The music used in the series was forgettable, nothing I can remember after the episode finish. Obviously this may change later on in the series.

I did enjoy this first episode but I can’t say for sure if I will continue this series until I see what episode 2 has in store. But overall it was an interesting watch and I would recommend giving the first episode a watch if you are in to Adventure, Mystery and Seinen.

If you want to watch this series right now, you can do so by legally watch it on Crunchyroll.
