What We Feel About The Series

The way of storytelling is a little prolonged with unexpected comical breathing spaces. The character explanation is not very unclouded.

Abandoning religion and battles between the lord and the giants are the prevailing parts of the series. Although the mixture of scintillating rock riffs, school dance and arm wrestling keeps the show going. But at some point in time, we really wish the show would resort to its main plot and solve the mess and give us the much-needed answers.
