Here's your shitstorm.
You're just a faggot who got depressed because there was no implied romance between Cibo, Sanakan and Killy.
You're bitching about action scenes? Do you even know what genre you're reading? This ain't no shounen. Don't compare apples to grapefuits. That's just faggot tree.
Most seinen never have to appeal to a specific audience or pander to specific character stereotypes. They simply plow through and create an new audience from scratch. If you don't like that, stick to what you know.
This is like picking up an rpg and saying that the random battles makes you forget what the plot is. DURR. That's your problem dickfuck.
This is simply a different style then what you're used to; where everyone is GAR and all unnecessary characters die.
Also, my waifu.
