-Is this an Akira prequel? Does paranoia nurture him? What is going on! And why is it so loud?
-This show started a thousand years too la-- err early.
-Um maybe the subs are wrong. This sure looks like a thousand years earlier.
-Narrative structure is breaking down. Can I have some chronology please?
-Cantus? Can't us? Cat bus?
-That camera pan between two kids did not make any damn sense.
-Giant insects. Pouch cows... wait pouches like kangaroos or as drawn by Rob Liefeld?
-So this is like The Villiage only with psychics.
-Damn kids these days and their psychic painting! Why back in my day we used real paint and it took days of hard work and years of practice! Rassa-frassum.
-Poor little clumsy adorable Reiko. Hang in there Reiko.
-Now I want a giant kitten.
-Ending song why are you trying to give me a headache?
What did I just watch? Visually it felt like a sequel/prequel/time-loop of Noein. But the story was... there was no story. Some girl. Psychic powers. School. The only character I was starting to feel attached to is killed off screen. Or turned into a giant psychic cat. None of the adults displayed any telekinetic abilities. So are the adults raising these psychic mutant children as weapons? I guess Saki's parents seemed worried about losing their child, after losing unnumbered previous children. But that could just be fear of being punished for having faulty mutants.
Losing cute little Reiko is a bad foot to start on. When the other foot is this confused muddled future past lying conspiracy world of telekinetic murder children.
