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.
I had the joy of reviewing this one each week with Irina and I know that it was a definite highlight of the Summer anime season. Given is a low key boys love anime with two adorable dorks at its centre.
I get the distinct impression that Isekai Cheat Magician is what happens when someone who has only read one genre believes they've got an amazingly revolutionary idea - not one but two characters end up in the other world. Only then they don't know what to actually do with them and so the end result ends up somewhat less than satisfying.
What greater horror than realising an anime that initially promises potential will not fulfil any of it? Here is Afterlost, a champion at broken promises and fairly dull story-telling.
While Demon-Lord Retry gave us the novelty of a character getting older after being sent to another world, other than some over the top comedy moments that will either work for you or land completely flat it didn't offer all that much during the Summer 2019 season. I did make it to the end of this series, but it felt much longer than it was.
I am super late with this review but here it is: Endro! The story about four girls who want to be heroes and defeat the demon lord and in episode one they almost do but a spell goes awry and we go back to where they first meet and are training only now the demon lord is their teacher.
The Ones Within or Nakanohito Genome [Jikkyouchuu] is one of those anime that is better experienced than described. While it is certainly a flaw riddled viewing experience, not the least because it is incomplete, there's still plenty of reasons to give this one a shot. Particularly if you are in the mood for something a bit strange.
Domestic Girlfriend is melodrama from start to finish yet somehow it is a train wreck of a romance story that managed to keep me watching even while I wanted to bang the heads of all of the main characters together. I know this review is late but here are my whole series thoughts of Domestic Girlfriend.
Astra Lost in Space kind of came out of nowhere and it did not take long before I was hooked. This one is a reasonable story told well and despite some flaws it was a solid adventure to go on. Be sure to read the full review.
There's a cool concept at play in Magical Girl Spec-Ops Asuka and this could have been something quite special in the dark magical girl genre and yet I can't help feeling like this anime missed its mark. I know its late but here is my review of Magical Girl Spec-Ops Asuka.
