Some down time for Iride is nice as this week's game focuses on Anya and Himiko and they navigate a dungeon they can't lie in. There's plenty of potential intrigue as we learn more about the cast and their individual quirks. I just really hope this is all going somewhere.
Multiple character back-stories, the llama headed guy intervenes in the game, and intrigue galore this week in The One's Within. It is starting to kind of feel like this is building toward something rather than just being random for the sake of it and I hope that is true because if it pulls off a decent end game this series could actually be a nice quiet achiever for the season.
The One's Within presents a challenge for a reviewer given its particular quirky tone is best experienced first hand rather than described in text. Honestly, this anime shouldn't work and yet I find myself fascinated by it.
Stalker Girl Saves The Day Nakanohito Genome [Jikkyouchuu] Episode 3 Rare that the stalker girl turns out to actually be the most useful and yet here we have a girl who is clearly a long way gone in terms of being possessive who manages to save the day this week in The One’s Within. I’m … Continue reading The One’s Within Review Episode 3
Mashing Genres For No Apparent Purpose Nakanohito Genome [Jikkyouchuu] Episode 2 While episode 2 of The One’s Within doesn’t really get us any closer to knowing the who, what or why of the situation, I do like that at least some of the players are open to testing how the mechanics of the game they … Continue reading The One’s Within Review Episode 2
Let The Games Begin Nakanohito Genome [Jikkyouchuu] Episode 1 Another mouthful of a name so we might just go with ‘The One’s Within’ as it is called on Anime Lab and call it a day. I’m very on the fence with this series more so than any other I’ve so far tentatively added to my … Continue reading The One’s Within Review Episode 1
Reincarnated Ultimate Magican Takes on Common Sense and Demonoids Let’s get it out of the way straight up so that we can move on. If there was a generic list of points for your standard isekai story, Kenja no Mago would tick almost all of them. It is the story of the average Japanese guy … Continue reading Kenja no Mago Anime Review
The Ultimate Magicians Do Their Thing Wise Man's Grandchild Episode 12 Prediction correct; this was most definitely an unsatisfying ending. Sure the beat off the demonoids who were attacking the neighbouring kingdom and decide that they are going to make an alliance with other nations for future safety, etc, but realistically this is the first … Continue reading Kenja no Mago Review Episode 12
Ultimate Magicians Vs Demonoids Wise Man's Grandchild Episode 11 There’s no way Wise Man’s Grandchild is going to really give us a satisfying conclusion. Showy and climatic, definitely, but satisfying not so much. As the ‘Ultimate Magicians’, and yes even I’ll laugh at the name, take on the demonoids attacking the neighbouring kingdom this episode … Continue reading Kenja no Mago Review Episode 11
Revenge Gained, Now What? Kenja no Mago Episode 10 Early in this episode of Kenja no Mago I wondered whether or not we needed half an episode devoted to the antagonist’s back story. The answer is actually yes, though possibly we could have gotten the highlights of the story in a shorter period of time … Continue reading Kenja no Mago Review Episode 10
