Synopsis

No dream is too big for Appare Sorrano, a socially-awkward inventor living in a small rural town in Japan in the late 19th century. Fascinated since childhood by the creation of steamships that can connect people across great distances, he's learned to make machines of all kinds from various scientific texts. His goal is to sail across the sea, beyond the sky, and ultimately, to the other side of the moon.

Unfortunately, through a string of events, Appare finds himself stranded in the middle of the sea on his mini steamship. Floating alongside him is a skilled but cowardly samurai, Kosame Ishikki, who was tasked to keep his eccentric behavior in check. Just when all hope seems lost, a large steamship saves them and takes them to Los Angeles. With no money or plans, they decide to participate in the "Trans-America Wild Race," which gives Appare the chance to build his own automobile, and Kosame the opportunity to use the cash prize to return home. However, against rival racers and unknown challenges residing in the wilderness, just how far will this adventure take Appare and Kosame?

Jojo's Steam Ball Run: the Animation, that is yet unfortunately another COVID-delayed show.

It's hard to believe that this one show that's full of experimental creativeness and perceived notion is all conceived by one man alone: Masakazu Hashimoto. From the story to the series composition that's tons of wacked insanity, it's more than enough to stand out in its originality, yet also be a callback to his career days of starting out as a director over at P.A. Works circa. 2011 (after flailing around from different anime projects in the 2000s with varying degrees of success). His first directorial and series composition work being Tari Tari read more

Another season. Another good original work anime by P.A works. This time it comes in the form of a racing anime. Appare-Ranman is different from anything I've ever seen. From the character designs to the actual plot of the show, nobody can say it's generic at all. The closest comparison I could think of for Appare-Ranman is around the world in 30 days. It's a wild, wacky and entertaining journey with Appare and co. as they race from LA to NY for prize money to return home to Japan. Unfortunately, things aren't as smooth sailing as they'd like.

Unlike Fairy Gone, which I love, Appare-Ranman has read more

What I didn't like about this anime,

I will start with the major con I have with this anime. There are many anime with the over-powered main character, viewer watches those anime for How the MC defeats or overcomes the hurdle? rather than does he actually able to overcome it. There can be many ways to show the characters are intelligent. Minor spoiler:The Main character(Appare) within a split second can calculate the objects trajectories and able to escape, in one scene. If it is limited to the MC (Appare) itself it would have been okay. The other main character (Kosame) able to split the bullet in read more

Samurai Like Speed Too
Appare-Ranman! focuses on a weird engineer Appare Sorano and a clever, yet timid samurai Kosame Isshiki. The two need to compete in the Trans-America Wild Race to win the prize and to return back home to Japan. The duo will face many outlaws and madmen during the race. Will they return back home safe and sound?

Appare Ranman is weird looking characters and supercars, many puns and a comedy that is quite unique and funny. Basically, there is an automobile race from Los Angeles to New York, and there are many people from all the parts of the world, willing to take part read more
