(One episode watched):

Despite all the fanciful plants and animals, and all the colorful animation, this show didn't 'click' with me. Perhaps that's because the girl, Somali, is an immature child who is sometimes more annoying than endearing. I never got the feeling that I knew her and liked her enough to care much about what became of her. Golem, on the other hand, is intentionally left without much of a personality. Perhaps another problem is that we aren't told much of anything about where they are going or what they hope to achieve. Why is Golem willing to abandon his role of protector of the forest? Is Somali the last human? We aren't told much, and that left me kind of bored. And a rabbit with small antlers isn't exactly an original creation. I was impatient for episode one to end and was relieved when it finally did.
