“I was wrong, kindness is pointless.”
The story takes place in Tokyo in 2039, after the outbreak of the “Apocalypse Virus” during what became known as the “Lost Christmas” of 2029. Since then, Japan has been under the control of the multinational organization called GHQ.
Ouma Shu is a 17-year-old boy who mistakenly obtains a rare and great power. He can use this power, “The Right Hand of the King,” to extract “voids,” or tools/weapons that are the manifestations of peoples’ hearts.
He has been rather shy since a childhood tragedy, but both his personality and life change forever when he meets a girl named Yuzuriha Inori, a member of the rebel group called “Funeral Parlor,” whose members seek the restoration of self-government in Japan via the ousting of GHQ.
Ouma Shu has the ability to extract “voids”, which are weapons or tools that is a person’s heart if you would put it in a simple way. Voids are the hearts of the person, not the actual heart but you could say that it’s their true personality,it’s their true self.
After the outbreak known as the “Lost Christmas”. Japan have been controlled by an organization called GHQ. Their style of treating people is now good, it’s either they kill the people if they don’t have any need for them. Funeral Parlor is a rebel group formed to counter the wrong doings of the GHQ organization.
The story has many plot twists, really really plot twists. I didn’t see that coming, your impression of the characters when you started watching this anime will surely change as you go closer to the ending. Some character have changed dramatically and changed really differently from their past self. The ending, the ending was……………oh my feels! I already knew the ending before I even start to watch this anime because I was spoiled by one of my classmate (yeah if you’re reading this, Thanks a lot!).
The animation of this anime was really superb. An art which is nearly to perfection you could say. The soundtracks were awesome too, loved the first opening theme song of this anime.
The only thing that I can’t accept was the ending, I mean why did that happen. When everything was going so well then Boom!, of all things, this has to happen. Well this kind of ending is really common to break your heart really bad. May the feels be with you.
So in all, if you want to try an anime with sci-fi in it and has a good storyline but with plot twists. You will enjoy watching this. But dem plot twists made me really go wat.
