This anime was a bit confusing at first. Didn’t know what was going on. Starts with a research facility researching Gilgamesh, mythological King of Uruk. Then, a bunch of people gather, they then put a halt to everything and the world gets turned upside down when a mirror is placed on earth.
Brother and sister, Tatsuya and Kiyoko, run for their lives. Apparently, their mother had a debt to pay off and when their mother died the mob went after Tatsuya and Kiyoko. Two groups are after them because it turns out they are the children of the professor who turns the world upside down. Gilgamesh and a lady named Hiroko Kageyama want them for that very reason.
It had so much back story on everyone lives, I felt like it was falling apart in some episodes but at the other times it tried really hard to put it back to together in others. They were introducing new factions and the new characters it was just falling apart at the end. To me that’s all it was trying to do, catch up to whatever story they were trying to dish out.
Gilgamesh tries to leave you with trying to decide who is the good and who is the evil? It’s just weird and twisted. It was just a heap of mess, too much going on and getting out of hand. Felt like they couldn’t do anymore and just decided to say screw it all and ended it and leaves you with a what the hell kind of feeling. For what it’s worth, I ended up semi liking the series none the less, but I wouldn’t try to re-watch it. It’s just one of those animes that you say you have to give it a try and end up forgetting you watched it.
