Why Watch Endride?
The anime is good to watch because it contains several twists. As well, the character development of the anime is good too. Also, the relationship between Shun and Emilio will attract you to the anime. Following them, the plot flows in a good direction. Though the side characters are not good. Later on, some of them are likable.
I think the anime is good if the start was made better. Furthermore, the anime is worth watching as the character goes from one world to another. And it’s really curious to see, can he return to the original world or not.
