TIME OF THE SEASON XX – Spring 2020: LISTENERS

Hey, Dai Sato. I heard of that name before. He’s been synonymous with most anime that captured my attention from most of Watanabe’s material, Eureka Seven, Gits: SAC and then he’s attached to whatever the hell Dai Shogun is.

So……what has he been up to?

Plot Summary: In a post-apocalyptic future that has been torn apart by shadowy creatures known as the Earless, humanity’s heroes are the Players, who pilot mecha known as Equipment to battle their inhuman enemies while earning fame and fortune to boot. Echo is a young tech-head who dreams of working amongst the Players and their Equipment, going so far as to build a makeshift mecha of his own, but he has long since resigned himself to life in the destitute scrap-heaps that cover so much of the world, now. That is, until he discovers an amnesiac named μ (or “Mu”) who has a mechanical port in her back that is the telltale sign of a Player. The pair become fast friends, and they vow to use their skills to fight for the world and defeat The Earless.

First Thoughts: OK, this seems like something that would be in my bag, since this does pertain to music and well, one of the main character is basically a walking AUX cord or stereo and while most of it isn’t exactly fresh, the story can be engaging. The main 2 characters Echo and Mu are examples of that as Echo does have a optimistic side of him, he knows that he’s in a world of shit and Mu may seem like the blunt girl that doesn’t take shit lightly and she is but a very capable character. I’m actually looking forward to see what this show has in store for us.
