I've never particularly cared one way or another about Greek mythology and barely remember what little I learned about it in high school so I'm probably not the best person to be covering this one. Fingers crossed that it'll be as stupid as it looks from the thumbnail and I won't actually miss any particularly … Continue reading First Impressions: Extra Olympia Kyklos
Attention grabbing one liner. Being able to take a screenshot that manages to sum up most of the show is nice. Woodpecker Detective's Office is about the above poet's friend reminiscing about when the two of them investigating local crimes and mysteries to pay the bills. It's nice. The art style feels kind of old-timey … Continue reading First Impressions: Woodpecker Detective’s Office
I've got three words for you: steampunk drag race. I didn't know Batman participated in cross country racing. Or, well, steampunk cross country derby. Appare-Ranman! is about a couple of Japanese guys traveling to America and participating in a cross country race for... reasons that have not yet been disclosed. It's fun. It's also kinda … Continue reading First Impressions: Appare-Ranman!
This is a short series about a zashiki-warashi (look it up) who moves to Takyo for strategic... gag anime reasons. Its fine. The animation is... not, but it works for the series. The jokes are all the standard yokai gags you've seen a million times mixed in with the city folk vs country folk humor … Continue reading First Impressions: The House Spirit Tatami-chan

I hate you so much, you overpriced donut hole. Millionaire Detective is about a millionaire who wakes up one day and decides to be … Continue reading First Impressions: The Millionaire Detective Balance: Unlimited
Preteens dramatically playing card games is a surprisingly popular genre of anime. Oh, god. There's two of them. Shadowverse is based on a mobile game that's popular in Japan. It's fine. It's obviously for kids, but it's not bad. It's a little contrived - honestly, what kinda kid bets their phone on the results of … Continue reading First Impressions: Shadowverse

The conceit of treating an adventurer party as employees of an otherwise typical white collar office job could be amusing if this show was a parody, or even had any sense of humor to speak of, but it doesn't.
Okay so lemme- lemme see if I've got my notes on this right. White Cat (untranslated) Project ZERO (all caps) Chronicle is an anime adaptation of a free to play mobile rpg's third anniversary event, which was a prologue exploring The Lore of the game's world. Delightful. What a bad show. What a bad, bad, … Continue reading First Impressions: Shironeko Project ZERO Chronicle
Today's offering is an anime based on a gacha game. My expectations are not high. What beautiful art. What stunning animation. Princess Connect is about an amnesiac protagonist joining up with a bunch of pretty girls and trying to save the world - your typical isekai fantasy gacha fare. I don't know if it's the … Continue reading First Impressions: Princess Connect! Re:Dive
