Okay these are rough thoughts but I like the short format, not great to give a big atmosphere and build the ambiance but it's nice to make it feel like a story a friend is telling you, which is why i think they are so simple, no time to get in-depth.
I loved Andy's story, how much she's clinging to this part of her first life and everything it carries, how this woman is still her role model, how she built her entire life with that axe, the whole Ship of Thesus things is so so great I love it. I like how she's already entrusting Nile with being the leader after her, how she's training her with the axe and confiding her story with her. Also, I liked how they go head to head in the comics and it's nice to find it here in the ttt too, Nile openly disagrees with her, it goes to show how equal they see each other. The glimpses at Lykon and Noriko were nice too, how they're laughing together and all. From the comics I thought Lykon fell out from Andy but it turns out the three of them were a tight-knit family, which I love! And Andy's last axe omg, not sure if it's on purpose or not the only one who gave her the right axe is a woman, none of the male smiths knew what she wanted, and I'm not saying sorority but you know. It's a butch with a labrys tattoo on her forearm who knew Andy better. Also, Andy and Noriko battle wives confirmed <3
Also that part where Andy doesn't know how to make the axe herself? I liked that, the fandom likes to joke they know a lot but relistirealisticallycally they can't. And Andy never learned how to forge weapons and now the knowledge is lost and it's a nice metaphor for how many things we forget and how many cultures die because people do not keep the craft and stories alive (or cannot because of colonization, wars and genocides)
I also like Joe and Nicky's story, especially the whole "you reap what you sow" aspect of it and how they always intervein. I can understand the criticism for Nicky but honestly it doesn't feel ooc for comics!Nicky, he's much more cynical than the movie version. And in 1933 germany there wasn't much you could do about a nazi out in the city, they were present everywhere (and ignoring can be a coping mechanism when you see everything falling apart) just like it makes sense for Joe to not be able to ignore it and feel the need to do something about it (and it goes to show how race play a role in your views, because Nicky isn't the first concerned by nazi violence here unlike Joe who is and Nicky doesn't feel threatened until Joe is). From what I read I expected much more tension between the two but Nicky immediately goes along Joe? So I feel it was more tactlessness on the writing rather than really bad characterization. Also, the way they're written, you feel the queerness of the story, the lines about not having enough time, committing a crime by dancing in public, etc. and the thing about helping one another and sticking together (you'll always have a home here and all that). And dancing together confirmed by canon I'm happy with that
Also same complaints as I had for the comics, the design omg. Please give Noriko some clothes I beg you, please stop with the racist designs of the characters thanks. You can exaggerate traits to fit your style without falling into racist stereotypes
