“My eyes don’t sparkle because they’re dark brown,” says the guy with blue eyes

Romance between 14-year-olds was low on my priority list to start with, but then they give me intolerable dialogue like this:




The visuals are beautiful, but I’ve got all this sci-fi that is high-priority sitting around, and I’m not going to make time for a blue-eyed character who says his eyes are dark brown.

Aside from that, the first episode introduces some heavy emotional drama to explain why the soft-spoken hero is devoting his mental resources to his inner hell rather than to the world outside.


And of course, all he needs is the right Manic Pixie Dream Girl to sweep him off his feet.
