Great Modern Anime
10 November 2018 | by androsx070See all my reviews

B: The Beginning is very in-keeping with modern television. Excellent production quality, an intriguing title sequence (like in GoT or Westworld) and a score which is both quality and well suited to the genre. The story is engaging with an interesting blend of crime-drama, gore, and the supernatural. Why I imagine many people would draw comparisons to death note. You may do this if you wish, but you'll be disappointed, they are very different stories, and admittedly this is not as good as death note, but let's be clear, few stories are. There are a lot of questions this anime fails to answer or does so too late for the audience to really appreciate certain parts of the story. A second season exploring the lore would certainly be helpful, but for what it is, 'B: The Beginning' is an enjoyable and fun series. I urge you to give it a go.
