An original anime from a studio that doesn't have much of a history and nothing I've actually watched (having not watched Youjo Senki), Deca-Dence deserves far more than its 7.52 score on MAL. While not perfect by any means, this one was a rare and somewhat unexpected treat.
There's a real sense of fun launching into a series no one can adequately describe to you without spoilers and while Gleipnir's early episodes definitely leave you wondering just what it is you are watching, as the story unfolds you realise that despite the bizarre trappings it is actually fairly coherent. However, does that make it fun? Read the whole review.
Well, I had watched Awakening so it made sense to do a catch up view of the Noblesse series. Overall, not particularly impressed but there are some highlights here. Be sure to read the full review.
Bell is back and as usual running headlong into trouble. That's okay. It's why we love him. So how is season 3 of Is It Wrong To Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?
Series one left me wanting more and 2020 finally delivered (though I didn't actually get to watch it until 2021). That said, The Irregular at Magic High School isn't for everyone and there's some definite reasons why some viewers won't be impressed. For those who adored the first season though, there's plenty to enjoy here. Be sure to read the full review.
Maple continues to find new and exciting ways to break the game and so over two episodes we get skills that turn her into a mecha girl, allow her to have her own evangelion parody and also a ball of wool. Oh, and did I mention Maple also became an angel? Bofuri remains a delightfully silly anime to enjoy each week.
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.
For the last time, why does anime think CPR is in any way romantic? I cannot stand this trope. Anyway, Darwin's Game continues to be mediocre with a few interesting moments as the Shibuya event continues.
What to do after another event finishes and you've now got your own flying turtle? Naturally you start a guild. Maple and Sally share the love in episode 6 of Bofuri.
Darwin's Game returns and delivers what by its standards is actually a pretty decent episode. It feels like this anime has finally found its feet.
