This is a pretty interesting one. A psychological/supernatural anime, the story is based on another story inside the anime. Each episode introduces a new character and that whole episode will be only about the character they're introducing. The episodes also look like you're watching a movie instead of anime (you'll know what I mean if you watch it). Not only that, each episode feels fresh and new as if you were watching a different series each time. However, because of this, the anime can be a little bit confusing at first, but if you watch it until the end, all comes clear and it's worth it. Last, don't forget to watch the side-stories after the ending song! If you miss these, you'll have a harder time understanding the anime.
Each and every character has their own story. They have an interesting and unique backgrounds, unique superpowers, and their own personalities. There's even a Cyber-Helper that looks like Hatsune Miku! How cool is that~ You will learn a lot about them as that is the main theme of this anime. They also have their own soundtrack. There's a character for everybody here. But, BECAUSE the anime is all about character development, i'll let you discover it by yourself.
As mentioned before, each episodes feels like a different movie. The use of color in their art style and animation is one of the most unique styles I've seen and I love it! The fact that the anime is all about character development makes this pretty original as there are not many animes like this. Also, the story is based on another story in the anime (inception much? *ahem*). Each character has their own theme-song which is amazing (Anime music fanboy right here!). I have to say that it would be almost impossible to find another anime like this, with a story that's based on ONLY character development and their backgrounds, so many characters with their own song and superpowers, and the episodes that give you that fresh and movie-like feeling.
Personally, this is the main reason why this anime is even more enjoyable. I said it before, and I'll say it again, Anime Music Fanboy right here! and Mekaku-city Actors is not lacking in this department. The opening has that Crazy J-Rock I love to get you pumped while the ending is one of the most soothing songs and it fits so well. Remember I said there's a side story that comes after the ending song, well, the ending song feels like the opening song for that side story it's amazing. Plus, all the praise that I've already given to each of the character's theme-song.
Mekaku-city is a very intriguing anime based on a story inside the anime and focuses on character development and background. It's a hidden-gem that deserves the love and praise of any anime lover. It might be a little confusing at first but just keep watching, it'll be all worth it! Plus the animation and songs are great~ Also remember to watch the side story after the ending song!
Hope You Enjoy!~
