Synopsis

The story revolves around the protagonist "I" and the murders and mysteries he encounters. He tries in vain to stay out of the story, but instead he always gets dragged into the center of everything. Even though it seems that he contributes a lot, he always finds out that whatever he did was meaningless in the end.

Like the show so far, and can say the overall show so far looks good. Really like the facts and the story, but seeing the character design and the sound QA go by. It just hurts my heart. The other main chc. is by my means really into ****.

By all this its a hard choice to see the art and screen blend into each other, i get that anime has a style and the art style switch between 2 sets. But the reason to flip them so fair seems like the enjoyment fall.

The thinking that goes into it while seeing the show is amazing, I've read more

Normally I don't write reviews right off the bat without finishing the series, but 戯言遣い: クビキリサイクル (Zaregoto: The Beheading Cycle) a good one, I promise you!

To begin, this anime is the adaptation of the book with the same name. The author is NISIOISIN which should ring some bells if you are a fan of Katanagatari, Bakemonogatari, Nisemogatari and the like.

Story:

Well because this book is one of my all-time favourites, I won't spoil the story but I'm giving it a 10 because even if this is an anime adaptation, the story is more than likely going to be the same as the book (which I know).

Art/Sound:

A Zaregoto Series: The Headless Cycle Review (Two episodes)
Spoiler-free

TL;DR: Head tilts. Awesome characters. A mysterious, violent story that will have you on the edge of your seat by the end of every episode.

-----------------------------------------------------------------
Those who want to watch this series, but haven’t yet:
This series airs only one new episode a month, so you’re going to have to be patient on either waiting for each new coming episode, or just wait until the series is completed. It’s not going to be completed until May of 2017.

“The Headless Cycle.” I guess this is where Shaft’s signature head tilts took a drastic turn, aha.

The Fall 2016 Anime Season Has Some Actually Good LN Adaptations!

Light Novel adaptations have had something of a poor reputation over the past couple of years in anime. For every actually good one, there are 5-6 terrible highschool harems led by Yuji Everylead the Bland. But this upcoming Fall 2016 anime season looks like it might be the exception....maybe?
