The quality of the story here is certainly grim. In case it hasn't become clear as I work my way through the anime I watched during the 2019 Winter Season, I'm jumping back and forth between anime I enjoyed a lot and anime that kind of had a bumpier ride. Last week was the slice … Continue reading Grimm’s Notes The Animation Series Review
Grimms Notes Episode 12 Review - So that was kind of an ending. Maybe. They are still travelling ,still haven't actually stopped Curly, and realistically I still don't get why they think they are right (other than something about protecting feelings) but, hey, cool fight scene.
Grimms Notes Episode 11 Review - Reina finally comes face to face with her childhood hero Alice and realises exactly why that isn't something that is always a good thing.
Grimms Notes Episode 10 Review - The villains present a compelling argument to which Ex, our hero, simply says he'll trust in the feelings of a character who is following their fate... I'm not exactly sure that's a winning argument.
Grimms Notes Episode 9 Review - Reina, Ex and the others meet Aladdin but this story is taking a turn for the worse.
Grimms Notes Episode 7 and 8 Review - This one has far and away been the underperformer of the season. With an interesting concept at its core, it just never manages to emotionally connect and so far character development or motivation has been somewhat underwhelming.
Grimms Notes Episode 6 - Given the characters themselves admit the fate of Snow White and her mother is pretty terrible, you have to wonder why they are working so hard to 'correct' the path of these stories.
Grimms Notes Episode 5 Review - Arguably the best episode yet but even then this has simply highlighted the overall flaw in the premise as it has been presented so far. Maybe that's a sign that the anime intends to deal with it, but I can't say I have a lot of confidence in that.
Grimms Notes Episode 4: They kind of need to explain motives soon because this episode did a good job of making me want to back the villains. Still, at least we got Ex's backstory so he feels a little more real in a fairly artificial setting.
Grimms Notes Episode 3 Review: We go back and see how Ex grew up without a book of fate until he had a fateful encounter with someone like him.
