There’s a frenetic pace to episodes 1 and 2, which kind of fits the source material. Of course, the perk of the game is the simple fact that you spend more time with Neku, Shiki, Beat, and Rhyme, and get to explore Shibuya’s every nook and cranny. As a fan, I find the episodes perfectly understandable. After all, I spent years of loving the franchise. I’m working with loads of secrets and plotty tidbits from later in the game. I know—or at least, assume I know—how most things will go. I’m along for the ride, simply because seeing TWEWY animated feels wicked in the best of ways.
