Paradox Live Anime Episode 1 Review: Is it worth Watching?
After discussing where to watch it we have come to the crucial question, is the anime even worth watching? Hopefully, a spoiler-free review of the first episode will help you figure that out.
- Paradox Live is extremely colorful when it comes to music and 3D animation. But takes on a dark tone when it comes to the pasts of the characters.
- Most characters seem confident in their rapping abilities. We got a brief glimpse into the past of a few but that’s the extent of the information we have about them. What stands out the most are the visually pleasing character designs. They are cool and stylish.
For being an anime centered on rap battles, there wasn’t much of an introduction to the competition in the first episode. We saw some performances from the lead band and they were quite packed with movements and beats. There is some mental distress the characters are going through. The anime is worth checking out for the character designs and the music.
As the anime progresses, it’ll be intriguing to see how the reactions of those who are familiar with Paradox Live differ from those who are not. In the case of the former, expectations also have a huge role to play.
Paradox Live anime stands out for its stylistic animation. That supported by a well-written story can make it a highlight of Fall 2023. With future episodes, we can expect the rap battles to get more feisty. There’s a lot to know about the characters as well. We also need to decide which band are we rooting for. There’s so much to look forward to, seems like Paradox Live did the debut right.
