Overall: It's not edgy you're just being an ass
Nexus is not an edgy dark ultra, it is most simply an ultra about hope and being able find hope when things aren't good. It's about finding that hope without losing your grip on reality and without denying the truth. It's not here to say life is bad or pointless, it wants hope to be found even in the darkest.
I fell in love with this show pretty instantly and honestly I can't pinpoint why, but that love didn't go.
Nexus faces one of those subjects that seems to be a centre for a certain kind of series, where we face a national, or international, issue and the Japanese Government decides that they don't want to panic the citizens so they'll cover up the entire thing no matter how big it is. They're just going to erase what happened from people and people wont face the truth, families will be left with unanswered questions. People who try to force the truth to light will be silenced. Nexus addresses why they want to do this and it makes sense but in the end we naturally have issues with these things being hidden from us.
Spoilers are going to be here as I talk about the characters.
I really like Jun's story though, I know we compare it with Eiji but I feel it hit a lot harder because of how close we see Jun was to her and we get this very real thing of how as a war zone photographer you can't be close to a subject. The way Jun disconnects when taking photos of the scene and how it absolutely breaks him to realise what has happened. It really helps to highlight the moral ethical issues of war zone photography from multiple angles. Even going into how he inspires others and how him inspiring others has an effect on himself as well as them. I feel it's a brilliant look to take and it works because of the depth they took into looking at what happened.
Please watch Nexus, it's worth it and inspired a scene in Evangelion 2.22. You're Welcome.
