First Impressions: Mars Red
Whoever decided to have the main character smoke near non-stop for the first half of the episode deserves to stub their pinky toe on a dull corner intermittently every day for the rest of their life. I'm trying to quit goddamit! Mars Red is an anime based off a radio drama about vampires in early … Continue reading First Impressions: Mars Red
First Impressions: Idol Anime Blitz!
Because none of us particularly care for idol anime, I will be doing this season's all at once. You're welcome. First Anime: Gekidol "Good thing you're the protagonist!" Girl sees theater production, wants to become actress, also there's an apocalypse going on. 6/10 - good animation, decent music, characters fine Second Anime: I*Chu the best … Continue reading First Impressions: Idol Anime Blitz!
First Impressions: EX-ARM
This show is giving me very strong RWBY vibes. You may have mistaken this for an expression, but no that's just his face. This one is fine, I guess, if you're hankering for a show to watch while you wait for the next RWBY episode. The plot's at least vaguely interesting - guy gets hit … Continue reading First Impressions: EX-ARM
First Impression: Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation
You know that trope in isekai anime where reincarnated guys perv on their moms? Don't do it, please. This thing flies with it's ears. This is your basic isekai - underachieving dude gets reincarnated to a world with magic and adventure ensues. Which is fine, and even enjoyable to watch, provided it's done well, and … Continue reading First Impression: Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation
First Impressions: Bottom-Tier Character Tomozaki
Ah, yes, a 'gamer character taught to human by pretty girl' anime. Joy. nuh-uh... Yeah, that's basically what this is. It's a decent show, so far, and the premise isn't bad. I'm not a big fan of Pretty Girl Main Character as a Life Coach - she's a teenager who spends the first five minutes … Continue reading First Impressions: Bottom-Tier Character Tomozaki
First Impressions: 2.43 Seiin High School Boys Volleyball Team
Yay volleyball. sports This show is fine. I found it hard to like any of the characters, but they're all actual characters. The animation's pretty. The sound design works. It tries to play up the human drama aspect, and there's a plot line involving attempted suicide that I'm not confident they'll handle well, but over … Continue reading First Impressions: 2.43 Seiin High School Boys Volleyball Team
First Impressions: Hortensia Saga
Stop me if you’ve heard this before.
First Impressions: Suppose a Kid from the Last Dungeon Boonies moved to a starter town?
My sibling described this one as an OP Power Fantasy Anime. My sibling was wrong. I love you already. Ok, not entirely wrong, per se, but not entirely right either. Last Dungeon Boonies is about Lloyd Belladonna, the best, most sweetest boy, who grew up in the town right outside the Last Dungeon of the … Continue reading First Impressions: Suppose a Kid from the Last Dungeon Boonies moved to a starter town?
First Impressions: Skate-Leading Stars
A daytime soap with a sports anime aesthetic
