Island first impression

I have seen it all now.

I don’t think I have laughed at an anime for quite some time. This show is not a comedy, in fact I’m not really sure what this anime wants to be. At times its giving you themes of mystery, at others it’s trying to drama and in random intervals it’s trying to be ‘ecchi’.

The show is about a guy who land on a remote island with no memory outside of him being a time-traveller (Which everyone is way too excepting of).

The show has an editing problem; there is no sense of flow.   I don’t know why the girl in the beginning ran to the beach? I don’t know how she landed on his penis….or why the show felt like it had to show me that?

Interactions between characters feel forced and unnatural.

When got halfway into the episode I had to pause. There is a moment in this show when they try to be really serious. They convey this by playing dramatic music, over a moment that isn’t dramatic enough to for it to play.  You could have played that track during any part of this anime and you would have still achieved the same effect.

The show does this trick trice! Near the end of the episode our main lead asks white hair girl to sing, simple request. Why are there instruments playing? It’s not touching moment, it’s not impactful, and in fact it feels out of place. LIKE MANY THINGS IN THE SHOW!

On the second viewing (looking for a screen shot) I spotted this:

She say at the end of the episode that sunlight will kill her.
