Listeners [Review]

Listeners is an ambitious original anime with a soundtrack composed by Jin. Unfortunately, it makes the same mistakes as Jin’s previous work Mekakucity Actors (animated by SHAFT) with its piecemeal story and lightly written characters. Though a strong soundtrack and decent world-building does make this show a worthwhile watch regardless.
