I'd read a number of fairly negative reviews of episode one of Scarlet Nexus but still decided to give the first three episodes a watch. Was it worth it?
Episode 3 of Seirei Gensouki seems to have wrapped up Rio's time at school. I still kind of wish the side characters had a bit more personality about them but this was a pleasant enough third episode with the promise of the story expanding in the next episode. Be sure to read the full review.
How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom seemed to take a page out of That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime's book this week with a lot of sitting around and doing character introductions. Still, there's some potential in the newly recruited talents so it will be interesting to see what episode 4 does. Be sure to read the full review.
Fairy Ranmaru was a bit of a hot-mess with some stand out moments and interesting ideas but has a mess of a plot and insufficient time to explore more or less anything. Still, not a total wipe-out.
Alderamin on the Sky is a military fantasy anime that mostly works. The lack of ending is a bit of a problem as is the overall pacing, but if you like Ikta's approach to life you'll have a lot of fun along the way. Here are my episodic thoughts.
While Seirei Gensouki still seems very much in set-up stage it has done enough to intrigue me. That said, it wasn't the introduction of sad b-grade antagonists that won me over and this episode has two of them. Be sure to read the full review.
How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom at least didn't give us crop rotations but we did get an explanation of cash crops before our new king plunges us into one of the most ridiculous recruitment speeches I ever heard. Be sure to read the full review.
I recently received a review copy of The Solo Leveling Audiobook from Yen Audio to be released July 13. Having read the light novel I was curious as to how the audiobook would go. Be sure to read the full review.
Summer 2016 began a startling journey of family and revenge set during the Prohibition era. Along the way there were twists and turns but how did the series hold together? Here are my episodic thoughts on 91 Days.
The isekai anime titles are coming thick and fast this summer and here we have How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom. Honestly, they don't even need to tell you this was based on a light novel as just reading that title would tell you that.
