If you’ve ever finished reading some classic literature and thought, “Needs moar robots” I suggest giving Casshern Sins a try. All the adventure of being cast out of Eden, introducing sin and death into the world and dealing with the consequences of free will, now with flashier outfits and occasional bouts of robo-mayhem.It’s thinky anime delivered in medias res and wrapped in delicious visuals. Recommended for those with patience seeking a more challenging series. Not recommended for those who need their lead males to be all GAR all the time.
