Before I finally checked out, the entire first episode was nothing but a pile of cliches breathlessly stacking on top of each other, until finally you had a towering mountain of things that have been done better a zillion times elsewhere. I'm not convinced this show was written by an actual human being with thoughts and feelings. It feels more like the first true procedurally generated anime.Sounds terrible. In my experience, the only thing that has a hope of saving this sort of set-up is if the characters manage to be more than a collection of clichés. It seems that this one failed in that.
