I'm not familiar with the source material so I watched the first episode with no expectations or baggage. One spoiler ahead.

  • It's not the best pilot I've seen but it's far from the worst either. The pilot had a lot of heavy lifting to do setting up the world so I cut it a lot of slack for the plot.
  • I expect the fire hands shown above will be explained a bit more later on.
  • Since the female lead left at the end and we're getting a new one in the next episode I'll withhold judgement until I see how she fits in.

Anyone else have thoughts?
