I like to call the folks in Tarsis, "Those goofy bastards" homage to There's Something About Mary. They do come off as too upbeat to start for sure and the crawl speed at the Fort does no favors and you have to do the big go talk to them loop often. But those goofy bastards start to grow on yah as you start to know their personalities. The VA and Animation are solid, writing give it some time, it comes around to at least a little caring. The overall arching story is fine, mysterious anthem relic material, destroys shit. It at least grows.
