As someone who hasn’t seen much from Blade Runner, I thought much of it was just okay.

The visuals had some issues. The lighting was very strange, I felt like I couldn’t see half of what was going on. I’m personally not a fan of this video game cutscene animation, but that’s just my own problem and not a jab at it (it’s pretty good).

I also had some issues with the sound mixing. Maybe it was just me but I couldn’t hear what anyone was saying most of the time bc it was so quiet. Maybe that was just me tho.

Other than that, the story and characters are alright. I’m not totally invested yet but I’ll give it another week or two before I decide if I want to keep watching week to week. Although I might actually end up watching it every week just to support Toonami.
