While nothing in this second season will change my opinion that season one of The Promised Neverland was an excellent, well crafted narrative that hit just the right emotional notes, there's no avoiding the fact that season 2 is pretty much everything season 1 wasn't and the end result is a less than satisfying mess. Be sure to read the full review and I'd love to know your thoughts on the series so leave me a comment. I will however warn there are spoilers for the final episode in this review which I would normally avoid but in this case I kind of feel I should spare people from having to watch this themselves so it is kind of needed.
We're back in Victorian London, a setting that anime has well and truly visited before, and once again taking on Sherlock's story though this time we're finding out about William James Moriarty. It is an interesting take on the character though I'm not entirely sure they've nailed the execution here.
At this point I'm just going through the list of anime available on AnimeLab or Crunchyroll, removing idol, sport or other anime that generally have low-appeal, and hitting play on whatever is left. Kemono Jihen didn't look all that exciting but it was a supernatural anime so I went in a little hopeful.
It's an interesting question given how popular shounen anime actually is and yet there are a number of anime fans who state a preference for not watching it. However, what makes a shounen watchable to someone who usually avoids the genre?
Ho-hum. So My Hero Academia continue with a school festival and lack lustre villains. It feels like the 'plus ultra' has left the building.
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.
A small positive from both Kapodaco and myself this week in regards to My Hero Academia. I think we're a little shocked. Check out our latest coverage of season 4 of My Hero Academia.
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.
Episode 17 of My Hero Academia season 4 and Kapodaco and I are at odds about whether this is getting better or not.
Yeah, I'm ranting while Kapodaco is searching for redeemable qualities in the episode... I'd like to ask just what happened to the My Hero Academia that we used to love?
