At a unspecified point in the future, the Earth dies. Then, a genius engineer only known as "Y" manages to revive the Earth using only gears and clockwork. Thus the world is renamed "Clockwork Planet", with cities being built inside the planet's gears. A thousand years later Naoto Miura, a student and lover of machines living in the Kyoto gear, finds a crate has crashed through the roof of his apartment. Inside the crate is a coffin containing the broken body of an automaton. Using his superior sense of hearing, Naoto fixes the automaton, who is named RyuZU YourSlave, who reveals she has been broken for over 200 years. RyuZU promises complete loyalty to Naoto and the two become close. Later they meet two people trying to find RyuZU: Dr. Marie Bell Breguet, the youngest person to become a "meister", a group of master engineers; and her bodyguard Vainney Halter. A month after their encounter, all four appear in Akihabara, Tokyo, having now become the world's most infamous terrorists.
sounds neat, i'd read it
Oh dear... That first ep was just awful. The production values were just horrible and very inconsistent. It looked like something made 15 years ago. There's as much QUALITY in this anime as you'd find in your typical Chinese sweatshop.
RyuZU has a nice character design, but that's pretty much the only thing nice I can say about this series. Good lord...
What I mean by "inconsistent" is that some of the cgi elements look nice enough, but they only make up a fraction of the anime.
Where as scenes like this are common place.
Bit disappointed by the setting of this anime. By "Clockwork Planet" I thought it might have been something of a metaphor for a highly technologically advanced mechanical planet that ran like clockwork and maybe had some complex machinery bellow the surface. Not a planet literally made of gears that don't seem to do anything practical and are only there to "look cool".
Was also hoping for a more mature cast/setting, rather than yet another perverted little boy having lolis and horny robot girls falling in his lap.
oh geez, that is disgusting...
Indeed. If this is the first ep, I can't imagine what's to come after ep3.
Why would an android have saliva?
Yeah that was a pretty jarringly lewd scene.
They put all the production values where it counts!
I don't know. You'd think with all the money they saved on writers and animators, they could have bought our girl some bigger production values.
You know what I don't get? This anime is filled with so much QUALITY and horribly drawn background characters, yet they have a full (poorly animated)CGI ending sequence that looks like it was made with MMD. couldn't they have incorporated those same character models into the rest of the series? It's not like they don't have plenty of CGI for buildings and other items. I prefer drawings over cgi, but not when it looks like >>28358 .
It's really disappointing. I loved No Game No Life, it was beautifully animated. How it was crunched down to 12 episodes was dubious but that's whatever, most if not all of the books were translated. Same deal with this one as well I believe.
This adaptation is just a flop, though, pure cheez. It looks as though it was made in 2008. It's a shame, the story/world is interesting.
Art/animation in ep 2 was a bit better than ep1 with the exception of a horribly animated intro scene. Still, once I got to this point here, I had trouble continuing.
< - This grinds my gears every time I see it.
I find the design of this world to be really ugly and kinda stupid looking. Rather than a believably functional fantasy world, it looks like our normal world but with large gears randomly attached to everything for no apparent reason.
Penis lubrication, obviously.
This went up for preorder and it almost looks like a completely different character from the anime version because of the QUALITY.
This show is shit, but I kinda like it for some reason.
>Rather than a believably functional fantasy world, it looks like our normal world but with large gears randomly attached to everything
God yes. I find the phrase "clockwork planet" both fascinating and evocative. I would love a show that explains what that is, how it came to be, and how it works. I'm pretty sure this isn't that show, and it's too bad, because that show would be awesome.
It really is a lot of missed potential. Buildings could move to be in different places at different times of the day. Whole farms could rotate for optimal alignment with the sun. You might not even need public transportation since your destination could come to you. Instead this anime glues gears on everything like a fashion statement. Real disappointment this show is I tell you.
