Well that was strange.  I usually like histroical period pieces because I almost always learn something and... well it's just kind of a romanticized time so it's really hard not to find it entertaining.
This one was just odd, tho.  The first episode didn't feel like a story, yet.  It seemed more like an eventual culmination of sorts.  Like we're seeing the last episode or something way on down the road first, and then getting the back story.  Well, whatever.
Lots of weird looking people, strange animation techniques, and some very original ideas for trying to portray motion and action without anybody actually moving.  It's kind of bizaare.
Not sure what to make of this one yet.
I'm just like you, only smarterô.
