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 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 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.
Grimms Notes Episode 2: Our group of characters go to another story zone after walking through a fog to find the zone is collapsing. They help and the day is saved. The end.
Books of fate, fairy tale characters, and chaos tellers combine in this less than thrilling adventure story.
What started as an alright modern take on a fairy tale slowly became something that just wasn't very fun to watch. So what went wrong and what did it do right? Let's have a look at 100 Sleeping Princes and the Kingdom of Dreams. Review: My first impressions of this series were not hugely enthusiastic … Continue reading 100 Sleeping Princes and the Kingdom of Dreams Series Review: Meandering Fluff
Last week I said the only way this could be resolved in a way that would make sense would be the characters waking up from a dream. Well the characters didn't wake up and this ending does not make sense other than the power of friendship, prayers and dreams. Now why on earth did I expect anything more?
I'm almost hoping that this series ends with the characters waking up and realising the whole thing was all just a dream because that's about the only way this is going to make actual sense. Then again, I guess I wasn't expecting all that much from a villain who sits around for 90% of the series doing nothing but watching because to be honest you have to really question how motivated they are to do anything at all.
