My Thoughts:

I give DARLING In The FRANXX Part 1 Box Set an A+.

If you are looking for an insanely cool box set, then look no further.

DARLING in the FRANXX is a fantastic anime plagued by its own shortcomings, most notably in towards the end of its run. What you get with this box set is part 1 meaning the best parts of DARLING as well as plenty of special features to keep your love for the show going.

The DARLING In The FRANXX part 1 box set offers a lot more goodies than just the special features including an art book, art cards, and a replica picture book from the anime.

If you are a fan of Studio Triggers other works then I would not hesitate to pick this box set up, darling.

You can purchase DARLING In The FRANXX Part 1 Box Set on Funimations official site.
