Opening / Soundtrack The OP is one of the great differentials of anime it is quite melancholy and pleasant to hear the soundtrack is reasonable and could have been a little better in the action scenes. Argento Soma is not an anime for anyone my experience with anime was quite satisfactory and I liked the outcome of the story. But if you like mechas and go to watch AS thinking that there will be several fights between robots you may end up being disappointed. The narrative is quite slow and the anime is mostly episodic the first part is kind of one of the factors that Its slow but thats essential. The second half of the anime is where things start to get interesting and the plots start to have a great prominence the plots are one of the strongest points of the work and not to mention that they are simple but they are very well written and are not so difficult to understand yourself. Characters At first I didnt like the characters especially the protagonist in which he was quite indecisive on several occasions but I think that after the second part the protagonist started to have a good development. Harriet at first appears to be just a boring character but you realize that she has PTSD and is quite agonizing to see the character remembering the deaths of the Parents / Grandfather. The secondary characters could have been more developed and with a better background but with the story that the anime proposed I think they were quite good. I think not only me but sure that other people were also confident that Maki was still alive the anime of the clues that she really was alive but I think that made the story much more interesting and not to mention the plot that is sensational Enjoyment I really liked the anime itself but some things could have been better and more worked on. If you like stories with a narrative like Argento Soma I think you should check out the anime.
