While Deep Insanity looks like it can stand up to sunlight, the program is doomed to fail in the end.

Deep Insanity: The Lost Child It’s been through a rough patch since its premiere, but unless the series has a memorable ending, it’ll likely take the fall 2021 worst anime award.
The most annoying thing about Deep Insanity it’s not that it’s bad, it’s that the good potential is constantly wasted when the anime falls between an action/adventure disaster and something pretty cool. The first episode wasn’t a promising start but the anime immediately turned things around completely in episode 2. It switched from Daniel Shigure shooting the crappy CGI monsters in the Asylum world, to meeting them all. other characters on Daniel’s team, strengthening their relationship and building a cast.
Asylum’s world slowly unfolds into something mysterious and beautiful as the birth of Exiles makes the ethical implications of exploring Asylum much more complicated. There is a real chance there for the team to get caught up in the web of international politics and corporate intrigue that could send them deeper into the underworld. Instead, anime is pushed back in the worst way to become merely confusing and boring.
The main problem of Deep Insanity at this point lies in Commander Vera Rustamova and villain Hayden. Anime seems to be interesting without explaining anything to the audience in a way that leaves us not suspenseful but simply confused. Vera can travel back in time and has done this many times so far. How she became a time traveler is a mystery, but at least Leslie Blanc was able to figure out her secret after many iterations of being with her. Hayden, on the other hand, examines the situation and decides that Vera’s closeness to Leslie clearly means time travel.
Hayden himself is a constant disaster. His ability to get to and from Asylum as he saw fit when the supposedly locked facility was recently explained by his partner Nadia using her hacking skills. These go hand in hand with her piloting skills in a windless place and the obvious ability to lift the Exiles out of Asylum and send them with Daniel and the group in the lobby of headquarters. Hayden is a wild card that can totally do anything without any explanation.
At this point in the anime, some sort of ending will also be apparent. The goal of assassinating the El-Cee Child of Exile had been in the works for a while, but the reason why she had to die was never explained to the team, and thus, not to the audience either. An unnamed villain wants to ‘merge’ with her, but none of this is explained even after it has passed. As the questions pile up, the anime forgets what was once important at all. Randolph syndrome was once a serious question, but apparently, the disease that spread from Asylum has ceased to matter.
One of the best parts of the series so far is when the four Sleeper agents get together for a drink and are able to chat and be at the heart of the story for just a moment. The cast of characters actually come together really well, and an anime that makes better use of that could be much better.
While it would be great to see Deep Insanity put it together in the final two episodes, given the amount of unanswered questions and the possibility that any eventual confrontation will be Vera using the tongue skill. gather his impressions to save the day, but we can hope the most because the squad makes it alive and an extremely dangerous disease will not spread and wipe out humanity. The most likely scenario is an ending that doesn’t make sense and takes the anime down to the cellar where poor action/adventure animes are completely forgotten, and that’s probably going to be for the best.
