graphics and sounds
It is perhaps its strongest point, the graphics are of extreme quality, an animation that often seems like a cartoon, even in the form of the dialogues, but from the first moment we see the desert we can realize that we are facing a real work. of art. Just like arriving in Union City, we can see what a futuristic and industrial animation looks like in the style of comics.
As for the sound, the environment is very realistic from the same sounds that a bird makes and the sound effects, definitely ending up giving us an enveloping atmosphere.
