Two factions seek to control XM, and through it, human destiny. The Enlightened view XM’s power as a gift that enhances the human experience and discovery. The Resistance see XM as a hostile takeover of the human mind, choosing technology as humanity’s best path forward. XM, and the mystery behind it, lie at the center of this battle for the fate of humanity.
Now, a new struggle is about to unfold in Tokyo and cross the globe. Dangerous and powerful forces seeking to exploit the potential of XM will collide. This groundbreaking project will mark the beginning of an epic augmented-reality experience combining the three elements of animation, location-based gaming, and the real world.
Three Episode Impression
The anime is okay. Nothing amazing, but not poor by any means. It is slightly annoying that we have to watch this raw with no subs because of Netflix. Still, the anime is a step up from the clunky days of Ajin’s art or even Kado’s for that matter. That being said, it’s not as smooth as we would like it to be. This is no Houseki no Kuni. Still, it’s not bad enough to stop watching. The story parallels Ajin a lot so fans should find this easy to get into as factions go head to head.
