Here’s a lesson I shouldn’t have needed to learn. Don’t watch Nazotokine after Yuri on Ice. I could have just stopped that sentence with ‘don’t watch Nazotokine’ but at this point I’m more or less committed. However, after Yuri on Ice what was probably just another run of the mill episode from this series just felt so incredibly banal that I was actively checking my twitter feed while watching. And I didn’t miss anything. The former cabaret girl introduces herself, there’s some half-hearted rivalry and then they solve the riddle and return to the cinema. Case closed. This series hasn’t done anything new or upped the stakes and now I’m just waiting for the end.
Nazotokine is available on Crunchyroll.
