So if you have been reading my blog for a long time, you know that I am a big Fate fan, so of course I will be reviewing the third season of this spin-off series about magical girls collecting cards.
This doesn’t look like Fate/Stay Night through? Oh, you guys are talking about the fate there are magical loli girls, instead of the usual men and women fighting in a holy grail war? Well, I did say this was a spin-off and the third season. This series in set in an alternative where the fifth war never happen, and you need to watch the other seasons before this one. Warning, this is the darkest season yet, and this post is a huge fan biased.
What is this? A sequel review to Gundam Iron Blooded Orphans.
After my initial review of the prequel movie, I finally found that to watch the third season of this amazing show. The first few episodes retell the events of the movie with better animation and pacing.
Picking off from Season 1, season 2 is virtually the exact same story concept involving a half shinigami boy who survives off of literal pocket change and his cool and collected female classmate, Sakura, dealing with various events and happenings involving the real world and the afterlife. There are new characters introduced in the form of Renge and Matsugo, as well as the two kuroneko contractors of Kain and Ageha, Oboro and Suzu respectively. Continue reading
The shows about cute girls making games is back. Pouring your whole soul and attention in something you love doing is the best experience that someone can have, a feeling that cannot be described by words thus New Game!! purpose is to portray that feeling through the help of our characters and story.
The story of this anime is very good, as a second season. It does not fail to entertain. The first arc deals with Osamu Dazai’s backstory in the Port Mafia. Immediately the watcher may notice that there is a significant switch in tone from the first season. The series has traded in it’s more comedic style of presentation for a darker one. Honestly, I love this change especially considering that the series is dealing with Dazai’s backstory, a much darker story line.
The second arc takes the watcher back into the heat of action that was occurring in the first season. I have not much to say on this part as it is simply just very entertaining and interesting to learn more about the characters I love in the first season.
I was so excited when I heard the news that they would be making another anime that was similar to Working! and I must say it’s just as enjoyable to watch. It is almost quite literally the exact same show, they’re in the same location (A different Wagnaria) but with new quirky and funny characters. It’s like I’m re-watching one of my favourite shows all over, and I love it.
WWW.Working!!! is a gag anime and nothing more, so it’d seem a bit over the top at points, but this is what it has going for it. Continue reading
Shokugeki comes back with this second season! As someone that picked up the manga, I expected that now that I know everything that will happen, I wouldn’t be as much interested as before, back when I fell in love with this anime, but I was totally wrong! the pure epicness of Shokugeki no Souma is more than enough to make me as scream like a fanboy just like before.
Superheroes, Kaijuu, Super Sentai. All 3 have been long cherished by comic book guys and nerds alike around the world. But what if they were real? What if they existed at the same time in our normal day to day lives. How will we react? This is the world of Concrete Revolutio. An anime original by studio Bones. it was split between the Fall 2015 and Spring 2016 seasons, running for a total of 24 episodes. Initially, when I picked up the first half, Concrete didn’t exactly impress me. It wasn’t awful, but the early episodes were not exactly a great first impression for what was to come. And what did come is probably one of the most underappreciated anime of the past few years.
The first season of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure is truly epic. It’s not like your typical shounen anime where the story drags on too long and feels like its overstaying it’s welcome. The first two arcs seriously felt like an epic. Not like it’s overly awesome, I mean epic as in Beowulf vs Grendel. It’s really about a story of heroism and amazing manliness in the pages of a manga. The anime captured the appeal wonderfully as you witness Jonathan and Joseph Joestar duke it out with a bunch of immortal vampires. Continue reading
