First Impressions: EAGLE TALON ~Golden Spell~

Hm... This was described to me as something in the line of Harvey Birdman and Space Ghost. I've never watched either of those and know only what I've seen on the internet about Harvey Birdman so that description was exactly zero helpful. It's not bad, whatever it is. Characters trying to balance world domination with … Continue reading First Impressions: EAGLE TALON ~Golden Spell~

First Impressions: Iwakakeru – Sport Climbing Girls

Muscles. This is a sports anime about rock climbing girls. It's pretty standard for a sports anime. The animation is nice, the characters are good, and the concept is at least unique as far as I'm aware. I might watch it again. Check it out if you like sports anime, sports climbing, or girls with … Continue reading First Impressions: Iwakakeru – Sport Climbing Girls

First Impressions: Warlords of Sigrdrifa

War! Psuedo-Norse Mythology! Child Soldiers! Magic! Biplanes with angel wings! Warlords of Sigrdrifa is a beautiful and interesting anime, even if children being made to fight a war due to Magic Reasons will never sit quite right with me. It's got a good balance of lighthearted and heartbreaking. The characters are interesting, likable, and understandable. … Continue reading First Impressions: Warlords of Sigrdrifa

First Impressions: With a Dog AND a Cat, Every Day is Fun

Dogs and cats are awesome, this is true. This is another mini-episode series about a human's life with their pets. It's cute and also includes what may be the most accurate depiction of an a*^shole cat I've seen in an anime. You should check it out. Please donate to our Patreon if you can, we'd … Continue reading First Impressions: With a Dog AND a Cat, Every Day is Fun

First Impressions: King’s Raid: Successors of the Will

First D&D anime of the season is mine! Ha HA! Ah, D&D~ The bustling pseudo-european cities~ the mysterious dramatic backstories~ the perfectly normal names~ the fantasy racism~ the absolutely boring pacing~ No wait, that's not enjoyable. This episode is okay for a premiere, I guess, but for all the decent animation and interesting plot threads … Continue reading First Impressions: King’s Raid: Successors of the Will

First Impressions: Peter Grill and the Philosopher’s Time

Druidquest was very wrong, I get the worst gotdam anime going. Fight me about it. Did you even try? It's a harem anime. It's a harem anime about a Boring Guy Who Happens to be Strong and already has a girlfriend being constantly propositioned by a bunch of monster and human women. He then makes … Continue reading First Impressions: Peter Grill and the Philosopher’s Time

First Impressions: Lapis Re:LiGHTs

Harold, I think they're lesbians. Please. Please let them be lesbians. The first magical girl academy is off to a promising, if slow start, with Main Character Girl's arrival to a prestigious magical school with an unfortunate class problem (pun intended). She's immediately sorted into the worst class group, but, in true anime fashion, it … Continue reading First Impressions: Lapis Re:LiGHTs

First Impressions: The Misfit of Demon King Academy

Guest Written by: Noah Haley Do you like wish fulfillment fantasies? Magical academies? Blank slate characters with the personality of a lightly salted baked potato? Congratulations, this might be the anime for you. The first episode is fine. Not the strongest opening, but it’s competent and it gets done what I think it’s meant to. … Continue reading First Impressions: The Misfit of Demon King Academy

First Impressions: Woodpecker Detective’s Office

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
