First Impressions: Infinite Dendrogram

Sword Art Online is a show about an author seeking to cash in on the concept of full-dive VR and the isekai adventure power fantasy genre while also knowing absolutely nothing about MMORPGs, video games in general, or what makes a good story. It stars a dull-looking, milquetoast teenage boy protagonist with no discernable personality … Continue reading First Impressions: Infinite Dendrogram

First Impressions: The Case Files of Jeweler Richard

Jewelry. Fascinating. I'm so intrigued. Oh, look, pretty rocks. This one kind of surprised me. Yes, there's only so much you can do to make an anime about jewelry interesting, but they manage well enough despite that. The characters are relatable enough, and the mystery is interesting, if not overly complicated. The show has a … Continue reading First Impressions: The Case Files of Jeweler Richard

First Impressions: BOFURI: I don’t want to get hurt, so I’ll max out my defense!

Oh look, my first video game anime of the season. My hopes are not high. She is the truest Newb. So, I actually liked this one.

First Impressions: Sorcerous Stabber Orphen

That... sure is what this anime is named. Descriptive. Oh, look a yellow fetus that definitely isn't made of pee. A peetus, if you will. So, this seems like your pretty standard Dungeons and Dragons anime. It's nice they've manage to capture the sheer chaotic stupidity of players, but it doesn't really seem like anything … Continue reading First Impressions: Sorcerous Stabber Orphen

First Impressions: Seton Academy: Join the Pack!

Who let the furries in the animation studio again? What kinda s%^#@& excuse for sexual dimorphism is this supposed to be?F^&*%$#^ furries. No. I refuse. You can't make me. I will not empathize with these stupid stereotypes pretending to be people. I will not laugh at lazily written jokes that never reach beyond the easiest … Continue reading First Impressions: Seton Academy: Join the Pack!

First Impressions: ID: Invaded

A second two-part premiere in as many days! How exciting. This one, however, is leagues ahead of the last. ID: Invaded is about a brilliant detective (they use that exact phrase multiple times) named Sakaido, who helps catch murderers by entering their mind palaces (here called "id wells", and are specifically born from the murderer's … Continue reading First Impressions: ID: Invaded
