Well I finished the anime, what a fascinating show. I was really wowed by the scene where Phos gets and uses her golden arms for the first time
, but simultaneously I was really not a fan of the somber and un-cute Phos. They could have at least kept her hair!
. My favorite part of the show (as it often is with shows like this) was all the worldbuilding and little details about the setting that they snuck in. Every time someone mentions some new thing about the world in passing it makes me want to know more. Also the Lunarians/Moon people are really interesting, and I love their Buddhism-inspired designs. This of course made the ending all the more frustrating, I don't think I've seen such a blatant "read the manga lol" ending in a long time. Liking it as much as he does I don't know how icicle went this long without knowing what the hell Sensei was about to say before the show ended!
Also my favorite gem was Red Beryl, I wish she got more screen time, she was very cute and I liked her enthusiasm. Diamond was good as well, especially after her fight scene with the big Lunarian.my favorite would have been Phos but I really just didn't like her much after her personality shift. She's cool but… I dunno. I imagine if I read the manga she'd grow on me.>>29231
Nice, I wish we got to see more of her too, she was really adorable when she got screen time.
