interested to hear your thoughts on this

I've never really had any interest. i've heard the title many times, but I was never sure what it was about. Might have to check it out one of these days.

To make things clear this casshern is the retelling of the 70s version where instead of Casshern being a hero to humans he is the reason everyone including robots are dying out. And it goes down some deep things about life and meaning of survival in a world of doom but so far you're willing to listen to it.  
 
About the live action Casshern don't watch it. Its complete trash. 
 
So do you feel that having a show with interesting visuals help tell its story better instead of one that is very clean like Darker than Black and Spice and wolf?  For you atleast.

I cried like a girl with this series, the 9th episode is a work of art, A Path is a beautiful song and the visuals with it are astounding

I watched this anime a while back.  It switches tone about halfway through, but it manages to maintain that sense of foreboding and the build toward some inevitable end.  It is not a great series, but it is solid and remains intriguing throughout its run.  I hope you continue to watch it and post your thoughts about it.

I haven't had an interest in watching this show. But Tom, "Sins" is not a subtitle. The title of the show is "Casshern Sins".

I can't recommend this show enough. It's probably my favorite 'new' production over the last few years. As a fan of both sci-fi and video games I have always craved a solid premise within a world of robots. I'm thinking something akin to a Mega Man style universe but with a richer fiction, heavy melodrama, and slick action sequences. I actually thought that the rebooted Astro Boy series did a good job at this but I was not prepared for how impressive Casshern Sins really was. It was incredibly well detailed for a feeling of both a world of robots and a robot apocalypse. Freakin' robots. Only watch this show if you like awesome robot cartoons about robots.

I wrote a long post about Casshern Sins while watching the video and then came the automatic video changing and fucked me over.

Long forever lost post short: The visuals make it, in a good way. This is serious and often painful, emotional show, based on the shounen groundwork in a wonderful manner. The introduction of Friender, how we learn the backstory, what's going on, and then what's really going on - makes me wish I knew the quality of the BR transfers. I want this up in my bookshelf (and in my belly).

"It gets better", haha, I've heard that before too.

Well, I actually did like DARKER THAN BLACK. I just had to stopped watching it for this site because the legal streaming had been pulled down...

There's not really a hard and fast rule. It just comes down to whether they're doing it for a reason and pulling off the intended effect.

I figured it was like TERMINATOR: SALVATION, but if it's like BATMAN BEGINS, is CASSHERN actually sinning in this?

Good cases to continue watching. I'll probably put it up on another vote.

Sounds like you and I had some similar desires. MEGA MAN basically was a flashier version of ASTRO BOY anyway, so there we are.

Wanting to eat the show may as well be the best rec I've heard for it, so far.

@Tom_Pinchuk:

I'm not sure. It could be his last name, or, from what I've read, he is the reason the world is in chaos.

@Tom_Pinchuk: Well its back up on Hulu again if you want to keep watching Darker than black.
