Much like many others, I skipped over trying Saraiya Goyou when it first aired because I was put off by the strange art style. BUT! After trying out other treats like Katanagatari and Kaiba–with their own unique art styles–I realized I needed to get over my aversion for the sake of something that could truly astound, or truly suck. The teeter-totter possibility of this anime, like any other, is saddled not only with the different art style, but also with a slow plot. Mega-slow plots are usually grounds for immediate failure, but this anime fights off failure with its exemplary characters featuring convoluted backgrounds and motives and the surprisingly tense atmosphere.
