    Synopsis:

    After THE REFLECTION, some people in all parts of the world are discovered with super powers. Some become heroes, and others villains. How did the Reflection happen? What was the cause of it? With many unsolved mysteries, the world is lead into turmoil. (Source ANN via Anime-Planet.com)



    ANN's synopsis above doesn't explain it too well, so I'll elaborate a little. This anime is a collaboration between Stan Lee and Studio Deen. It is an original concept with original "comic book" characters. It centers around the idea that one day, after an event, people all over the world are discovering that they have super-powers. But what if the wrong kind of people woke up with these super powers, formed an army of sorts and attacked the non-super humans?

    The very fact that it's Stan Lee involved in this makes me want to at least check it out and see if it's any good.

    You think they want to time its release when the super-hero hype has settled down or slowed a bit?

    Also, I really like the art style and premise of "too many bad guys, not enough good guys". I think it'll be like a "villain of the week" type thing but with over-arching plot-points about the "shocking truth" of The Reflection.

    You wonder what it can do differently. Plus it's clear from the PV that the animation is taking a different direction.

    I finally got around to checking this out and even though it got alot of hate (unnecessary amount imo) I still wanted to see for myself. The art style is different and nice to look at so no complaints there. The music is very good, liked all the music in the show so far. The characters and powers are all definitely interesting and the backstory is a bit cliche but not bad or anything. Only the dialogue and pacing were poorly done, alot of the characters seemed like they weren't able to speak properly. Also there was to much pausing and no weight behind the combat.

    It has enough for me to keep watching for now but if it doesn't improve I might end up dropping it. Its probably like a 6/10 so far.
