4.0 out of 5 stars Only good at night, October 6, 2007
This review is from: Texhnolyze - Inhumane & Beautiful (Vol. 1) (DVD)
I had this review between 3 and 4 stars, but since the animation style is overwhelmingly breathtaking in terms of its ability to establish and sustain an apocalyptic mood without actually saying so, why not 4? There's no plot (at first), but that actually works to your favor IF you watch it at night, with the lights out. I'm serious! It is a dark, dark tale, in terms of its look and its psychological feel. I think the creators intended audiences to watch Texh at night. By day, it's confusing and boring, staggering along like an obese drunk; by night it's a hypnotic masterpiece that will haunt your dreams and leave you sweaty. Other animes have similar aura's when watched at certain times of the day, at least for me. "Now and Then, Here and There," "Ghost in the Shell (the movies)"Berserk," "Blue Gender"--these are strictly nighttime shows. Viewing them at any other time seems to ruin their desired effects. On the other hand, animes like "Trigun," "Record of Lodoss War," and "Last Exile" seem to work better in the day. And strangely enough, I can only watch DBZ in the morning! If you buy Texh, do yourself a favor and try it at night before returning it. You may just change your mind.
