I don't think it'll be a surprise for many of you to know that Bee Train absolutely dropped the ball. This is utterly dreadful.
Terrible soulless animation. The usual Bee Train panning. For such a wild manga this is obscenely static.
Manji's voice actor doesn't fit. Even if you haven't read the comic you'll realise this.
Botched character introductions. There's no impact to any of it, not to mention the fact that they're changed from the comic to make matters worse. Characters just sort of appear with no relation to anything.
The pacing is awful. There's no fluidity to any of it. Nothing's connected. Scenes go on and on and on.
As expected, the gore is massively toned down. We don't see anyone die properly.
Bizarre stylistic choices. Flowery patterns while someone looks surprised? THAT's supposed to convey a horrible gory death. Well....no. It doesn't work for me. And speedlines have no place in Blade of the Immortal.
