Episode 2 of Bofuri continues to demonstrate a charming understanding of casual gaming and gaming just for the joy of it. Maple joins an event and then is joined by her IRL friend who also decides to go with a slightly unconventional build.
BOFURI is the kind of silliness that just works because it does. Whether it continues to entertain for an entire season remains to be seen but for now at least this first episode is mostly harmless fun.
Somali and the Forest Spirit is so far exactly what you would expect from an adventure slice of life story about an unlikely father and daughter duo travelling. It's sweet and very pretty but hasn't really got a massive hook unless you are really into slice of life.
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'.
The season final ends more or less where I finished reading the books so while it feels like there is more journey to come, I kind of like where this decided to stop. Episode 12 of Didn't I Say To Make My Abilities Average in the Next Life continues to be average entertainment, but entertaining nonetheless.
This ended up being a weird combination of episodes to watch with episode 10 being kind of a stand-alone filler story and then episode 11 being part one of what is clearly the climax of season one. Still, both were enjoyable and I'm looking forward to the final episode of the season.
Didn't I Say To Make My Abilities Average in the Next Life continues to take a slightly different path from the novels but the end result works well enough. These two episodes are definitely a step up from the beach episode we got at episode 7.
Assassins Pride continues to do little with concepts that could be interesting, this week plunging us into a murder-mystery kind of plot only one that lacks any real tension and feels utterly disconnected from the whole Melida Angel storyline that seemed to be the point of the anime. Some pretty scenery notwithstanding, episodes 7 + 8 delivery little to recommend this anime.
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.
For I am the great and powerful Oz? I'm not entirely sure what this current sequence of Granblue episodes are going for though I did start wondering if I was in fact watching an anime or a slide show at one point in this episode.
