This week for Anime Sunday I’m back with the first series from the Spring 2020 season. It’s my Tower of God Episode 01 Impressions!

Plot: The plot is okay, but frankly it lacks any sort of pull for me personally.  Bam, our main character, follows his friend Rachel into the tower trying to meet up with her again. Considering that they only just seperated, or so it seems, the fact they don’t meet each other almost immediately seems contrived and doesn’t make any logical sense. Maybe future episodes will fix this seeming error, but I could care less. The plot to me, is tired and boring and just not engaging enough for me to spend the time needed to watch more episodes.

Characters: We really only get to see a few characters in this episode, and frankly they aren’t all that interesting. Bam seems to be just a blank shell for most of the episode and other than wanting to meet Rachel again doesn’t care for much of anything. Everyone else is just as boring as him.

Art: The art is pretty good, but not as good as my gold standard.

Music: It’s decent, not amazing but not terrible either.

Overall: A pretty lackluster series to me, others may enjoy this Korean Webtoon Adaptation, but I personally won’t continue to watch it.

For those who like: Action, Drama, Unnecessary Drama, Mysteries.

Not for those who don’t like: Any of the above.
