I started watching this show beacuse of the character design. The first episode or so was alright, but then it turned into crap. It did a few things right, I liked the scene where Mai gets a blank look on her face for a while and then goes batshit insane, but most of the show just felt stupid. Most of those robotic whateverthefuck-they-ares were just ugly and stupid. The plot was generally pretty meh and the side characters were annoying. Also, horrible engrish. It's a shame, because I wanted it to be good.
