Plot Summary: Yukiya is about 14 years old. He spends his time DJ-ing alone. Due to his father’s influence, he’s listened to house music since he was young, and he uploads videos online. He wants to convey something to someone. He wants to be recognized, and become important. But getting hurt is scary. One day, while trying to get more views, he does something that can’t be undone. And he sees a live broadcast from “that world.” Yukiya believes he can’t do anything alone, but that he could accomplish something if he were doing it together with someone else.
First Thoughts: OK, the weird shit that was in Hand Shakers still continues but just with the focus (or at least I thought the focus was going to be) on DJ’ing and house music and before you ask, yes, I thought those moments of Yukiya DJ’ing was the best parts of the first episode and the DJ animation actually looked fine. It did looked like what a DJ would do in his set and that’s it for the positive things about it. As for the others….. well, it’s not as ugly-looking as Hand Shakers was but it’s still not impressive, especially during those scenes with the CG masks. GoHands and Frontier Works do not need to work together again because they made some rough-looking shows. As much as I like the DJ’ing from Yukiya, he’s very bland as a character and his partner/friend/love interest/I don’t know Haruka is there because…. well, I just mention those other things but yeah, this looks like the same shit I saw 2 years ago, only thing different is Sentai Filmworks is the one to grab this title. I guess Funi didn’t want that anymore and thought Sentai should get with them….. again.
Now I could skip this…. but I’m not. Again, the one thing keeping me from skipping it is that music and again, wonder how bad this trainwreck is going to go.
Welp, the press release didn’t mention any connection to Hand Shakers, so it must be that.
