Why must all the best anime premiere in the middle of the season when I am predisposed to not want to watch them? You see what I must deal with? Do you see? Fena is good. It is very pretty, and fun, and has pirates and samurai. Who act sort of like ninjas? Maybe? I … Continue reading First Impressions: Fena: Pirate Princess
This... exists. This kid yeeted herself off a building. It was, somehow, the right decision. You know the drill - high school kids get sucked into another world, some of them get superpowers, they act like shitty teenagers, etc etc. Star Cheeked Character is either the Big Bad, or knows more than he lets on. … Continue reading First Impressions: Sonny Boy
Well, hello there. This is an idol anime. It's a good idol anime, the main character having stage fright is an interesting twist, the art is cute, and I didn't immediately hate any of the characters (despite some... annoying neglect of boundaries one of them participates in: 'No' is a perfectly acceptable answer, no matter … Continue reading First Impressions: Love Live! Superstar
This one looked stupid, and it is! It follows the exploits of the main character whose name I can't be bothered to remember as he's isekai'd into a parallel world to work for a black company. He's dearest dream is to be a NEET (no education, employment, or training), but I'm not entirely certain he … Continue reading First Impressions: The Dungeon of Black Company

You know that character that is just overwhelmingly positive and sweet and nice and you're supposed to like them, but they're just so loud and incapable of respecting boundaries that you can only handle them in small doses? Yeah, one of the main characters in this is … Continue reading First Impressions: Kegeki Shojo!!
Administration, yay.... I fully expected to be bored going into this one, and I was correct. Administration is difficult to make interesting, even at the best of times. While I appreciate the attempt to do a different take on the whole summoned hero saves the new world genre, it would have been nice to have … Continue reading First Impressions: How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom
What I thought I'd get from the first five minutes: angst and drama as a result of a traumatized child's cursed book. What I got: These dumb boys gay (maybe). It's good, though. If you're into slightly creepy vampire transformations and dumb boys being dumb and possibly gay, I suggest you check it out. Also, … Continue reading First Impressions: The Case Study of Vanitas
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
