Wait a damn minute! Why does this remind me of that one Justin Timberlake movie that people definitely forgot? Also, why did I think that and how did I know that to reference that movie?

Plot Summary: In the year 305 of the Alcian calendar, the world is ruled by “Counts” (numbers). Hina’s mother has a dying request: that Hina find a certain person. Hina then meets Rihito, a swordsman who wears a mask and who keeps his true identity a secret. Rihito wields his long sword to protect young women and to clear away the darkness of the world.
First Thoughts: No lie, the plot of this is fucked up. I mean, if your count goes low, then you’re basically sent to Hell and then there’s people that wants to steal your numbers and just plain wants to fuck with you. Hina walked over 45,000 kilometers just to fulfill her mom’s dying wish and that got shot down when it all turned out to be fucked and yet her savior….. well, his first impression wasn’t that great. Oh, and did I mention that her count is located on her thigh aka yup, expect some scenes involving that detail. Oh boy.
But….. to be fair, this was pretty decent. My positives are more into the characters Hina and Lynn, especially the latter. As much as Licht does come in the last minute to save the day, I got a feeling that pervert aspect isn’t going away soon.
Thankfully, this has a same-day dub because yeah, I’M STICKING WITH THE DUB.
I see they’re doing another same-day dub with this and ID: Invaded. Hope the guys at Funi don’t overwork themselves.
I’m MAK2.0 aka The Blue Hybrid and if that shit happens to me, please put my number in my afro where no one can find or touch it!
