When I scrawled the internet for details on the Spring 2012 series, I got interested in Ozma, being a big fan of science fiction series. It also intrigued me on how this one would pull-off with the current trends in both the fanbase and anime production. True enough, some (mostly new) anime fans don’t find this good. I beg to disagree with the mainstream sentiment
Honestly, I totally did not expect for Ozma to have an excellent example of bringing retro character designs and similar art themes to life. Details in the art have a good mixture of both modern and retro detailing. One personal note though, I would have preferred this to have smoother details on the character design faces but it wouldn’t matter since it aims to invoke the cool retro feel over modernity. The audio presentation feels mediocre overall. Yes you got excellent voice acting but the music, especially the opening theme, here needs improvement.
So far, the episodes had been engaging and tells the story in the right ways. Mystery is slowly being built-up and the world unveiled. I’m actually intrigued on how this would end this end. Ozma starts this season with a BANG and consistently entertains the old schooler in the audience. Look forward to having this reviewed.
