Well my opinion of Casshern Sins is very abstract, just like the show itself. Oftentimes when watching Casshern Sins, I wondered if the events that were happening actually happened or if they were symbolic of something in the larger scheme of the plot. Sometimes I just told myself that it didn't matter if it was either. The events were organized well enough that it didn't really matter. But if you start wondering out of the blue why things are happening, attribute it to the show's wonderfully abstract plot.

Ah yes, the plot surrounds a post-apocalyptic world. The apocalypse in this world is man-made, as humans have polluted the world so much that the only things that could survive were cyborg robots and advanced humans. The story follows a cyborg named Casshern who killed another cyborg named Luna which started a chain events leading to the ruin of the world, making it unliveable by humans and robots alike.

The most important thing about the plot though, it that Casshern himself is the most thoughtful robot/cyborg/whatever I've ever seen. He calls his past a sin, he calls his existence a sin, he'd call his own mom a sin if he could. The point is that, for a cyborg with the most fighting power in the world, he acts like a teenager who got into an accident with their dad's car. Did I mention that he's thoughtful? Because if you watch Casshern Sins, you will know what I'm talking about.
