I never did review the final three episodes of this anime though I did finish watching it. Honestly, I just didn't have enough to say about those episodes individually. Here's a supernatural police drama that manages to yawn its way through 12 episodes despite the promise of vampires, dragons and large scale terrorism.
I'm still fairly certain I reviewed Another at some point in the past but I could not find the post when I did my reflection on the decade list and so here we are. My thoughts on one of my favourite horror anime.
To say that the second season of DanMachi doesn't quite match the high energy fun of season one would be an understatement. However, we do get some important world building and character introductions so the question is whether that's enough for a season.
Oh boy... Arifureta the anime... Hmm, nope, let's just do this.
While there are some truly great moments in Stars Align, the series lacks balance and the pacing doesn't really allow any of its concepts to get the full attention they deserve. Also, ending prematurely, without a follow up season this one seems destined to be forgotten. However, I'll give it points for effort at least.
Cautious Hero gives us the usual isekai deal with an overlay of heavy comedy. The main gimmick is that the hero, despite being incredibly powerful, is incredibly cautious (almost paranoid about danger). There's certainly some amusement here but can this one hold its own in the already over-crowded comedic isekai market?
Hataage! Kemono Michi is another isekai story about a Japanese person being summoned as a hero into a fantasy world. The gimmick this time is that he's a pro-wrestler who loves animals and upon being summoned he drops the Princess on her head and runs away from the castle. Despite being a summoned hero, Genzo's grand plan includes capturing demon beasts and using them to open a pet shop. It is a silly show that doesn't take itself seriously and by and large was fun enough even if it is lacking in areas.
It's another story of a Japanese teen getting isekai'd to a fantasy world only, at the request of the teen she's going to be perfectly average in every-way... Just a shame she forgot to ask god to be an average human. This one is a charming romp but doesn't have a lot of substance to it. However, if cute girls doing adventurous things in a fantasy land is in any way appealing, this will be worth the look. Read the full review and I'd love to know what you thought of 'Didn't I Say To Make My Abilities Average in the Next Life'.
Latina sure was cute but is that enough to carry a slice of life fantasy series about a human adventurer taking in a demon daughter? Turns out, pretty much yes.
I had the joy of reviewing this one each week with Irina and I know that it was a definite highlight of the Summer anime season. Given is a low key boys love anime with two adorable dorks at its centre.
