Audience Reviews for Baton

Ryuhei Kitamura's Baton has style, which is enough for it to receive a passing grade.Comprised of three episodes that add up to roughly an hour of storytelling, Baton is an animation that ends up a little vague on setting and technological details; however this is only a minor letdown. The important plot details are also absent until the second and third episodes.The action and visuals are stylized around Kitamura's directing and this all adds up to a unique watch. The choreography behind the action is pretty good and there is quite a bunch of it, especially in the first episode's introduction. The visuals behind the animation are showcased throughout the closing credits when a few screenshots are transferred to their live action counterparts.The voice work of Hayato Ichihara and Aya Ueto are the frontrunners of this production with some other noticeable names popping in throughout the episodes.By the end, Baton is a little lacking in places, but with enough stylization and story, it isn't a waste of time.
