The description text on AnimeChart didn't really catch my interest too much. I mean, a guy turns into a giant mascot suit? There's a REASON I ditched Furry Fandom when it stopped being about Art and Comics.

But people I follow on Twitter raved about it, and I finally started checking it out. I'm 3 episodes in and it is tremendously mind-fucky. It's much more about poisoned wishes that cost you everything you held dear, and what a monster you become as a result, and our hero is the victim of someone else's wish.

And the episode 3 cliffhanger was so jaw-dropping, I had to post before I watched the next episode, because DAMN!

(Now if I could find a translation that includes the OP and ED. Why are so many circles falling down on this these days?)

1 Episode 4 resolves the cliffhanger in a reasonable way. They find the cause of all the weirdness, and he gives a purely honest explanation that really sucks the mystery out of it all and gives it a REALLY Shonen goal (Except this is emphatically NOT a shonen show.) Hopefully episode 5 improves.

2 And by episode 5, the Shonen plot reveals itself. Wander the woods collecting Power McGuffins, collecting allies and fighting depraved bad guys. They already showed the first Boss.
What a shame.

3 Got to the "End" and while they managed to dodge the shonen plot (Mostly) what they replaced it with was neither very clearly worked out (lots of stuff with erased memories partially coming back and erased again) nor particularly satisfying. Was it left open for a second season? I guess. But the result is very, very incomplete to me.
