Preliminary Spoiler

Preliminary (7/24 eps)
Since MAL has cunningly started showing review ratings at the very bottom, here's mine - 8.
I've never read any of the long reviews on this site, thus not interested in writing one.

Story & Dialogue - Great. Awesome concept, dialogues, story, as well as the jokes.
Animation - Yuck. Though I understand it's been made by a starting out studio, the animation is barely bearable. Extremely jarring at times, to weird transition of characters.
Sound - Sometimes decent, other times, not so much. Didn't feel the tension during some of the fight sequences, though it could've been coz of a combo of sound and animation
Characters - Don't quite ...

--This is a spoiler free review--

At first glance, Hoshi no Samidare looks like your average show. However, in reality, the show is actually pretty good and creative. It's about a story of a boy named Yuuhi who is just your average boy. However, he soon gets chosen to destroy the biscuit hammer because a knight that turned into a lizard (Noi) has chosen him to be one of the people to destroy the biscuit hammer.

To be honest, the premise is a unique setup that isn't a low effort copy from your usual Shonen. When you look down at the story, it's actually pretty good. ...

Preliminary (12/24 eps)
This review is written by someone who read the source material.

The premise of the show Hoshino no Samidare is that the world is about to be destroyed by a giant hammer. To stop the hammer, 12 people called the knights are picked by Princess Anima who fights the Mage. Each knight has a talking animal accompanying them that only the people involved are can see. Basically this set up is similar to a game, but not like in an isekai with video game mechanics.

Basically it is a rule of cool show with cool one liners and badass moments. There is a lot we learn ...

Preliminary (18/24 eps)
No spoilers.
Due to this low socre that makes no sense, I decided to write this. Ignore the score you see in MAL. As of ep 18 this is easily a 8+/10.
The animation is bad, it's terrible, yes. Ignore that too.

But the history and the character development is very well made. This anime has its silly moments (especially in the beginning) but overall is one of the very few animes classified as "Seinen" that actually honors the genre. When things start rolling you see what this is all about. The way it approaches how people grow is very well made and super rare to see in ...
