I usually think your reviews are among the better ones in this site but man that intro (prin pri review) was corny as hell lmao.

I respect your love for chuunibyou my man
Any fan of that show is good person in my eyes

"And the original author of this story (as far as I am aware) does not hold remotely similar views, meaning that, at its core, the anime does not derive from an evil place."

I think that's the important thing here. The director simply did work; he wasn't the one who actively created this whole idea, only to bring it to animation. So any effects of that didn't get into the production itself, so as is I still like the show. Hell, even if someone involved was from a separate controversy in general, I won't mind until it damages the quality of the work. As critics and reviewers, the product itself should be judged regardless of the memes or the views of its creators. Hearing things like Director's Commentary is great and everything and can let you appreciate work in its own view, but outside controversy won't do the opposite unless it came from a place without passion.

I haven't been to reddit since the start of last year, account was banned/deleted and not going to bother with a new account. The anime subreddit has too many pedophiles and young teenagers, not a pleasant place.

I am not watching anything this season. It doesn't look good other than Jojo, and I always wait for the bluray release on that one. I'm making the final stretch towards anime endgame where I will have seen all the good stuff and will be free to watch whatever.

You should watch the Arslan Senki OVA series. It's way better than the dumb Hiromu Arakawa show.

Agreed! I very much respect your work ethic, participation in the anime community, writing ability, and overall taste. Looking forward to watching Chuunibiyou, I'll put it high up my PTW!

Still, the essays when present are interesting. Part of the reason I enjoy so many of your reviews is that by having your own website, you're able to get into extensive detail, include pictures and have analyses filled with plenty of actual proof from the series.

It depends on the story. If a story resolves its world without answering vital components of the setting, it is more at fault. However, not answering every question in a franchise that will continue to explore that same setting in latter installments is perfectly acceptable. Enough needs to be done in the first go to get a unique feel for it even if juicier details are left untouched atm.

The first season is solid with some high points where the novel's strengths get around some shifty production, but what I like about Rokka no Yuusha as a series is that it constantly challenges the mental state of its characters, escaping the usual "we-all-get-along-like-fated-buddies" thing of any shounen. There's always a lot of tension, without the OPness of any particular character, which for a Light Novel show I appreciate a lot, since many of those are infamous for the overpowered all focusing nature of their protagonists. In every book, characters have some sort of desperate idea or gambit they want to convey/pull off, but they are put in compromising positions that will turn everyone else in the moment against them for reasonable circumstances. You saw that in the series with Adlet, but later installments put that on Maura, Goldof, and SPOILER character, which does the Mikaela thing from Seraph of the End only way less awkward. There's a rhyme and a reason to why
was chosen as the 7th Brave, since it goes to affect other character arcs and the worldbuilding fed out overtime, constantly making you ask questions. An action series (with tactics!) cross bred with a paranoid thriller makes for a doubly compelling read in a market full of JRPG inspired Isekais, or high school drama/battle anime.

OK, I'll keep up with it. Sakura Quest didn't hit the highs of Shirobako for me, but it was still enjoyable enough.

Great Made in Abyss review! I enjoyed reading it but I liked your essay regarding worldbuilding even more. The author put a lot of thought into even tiny details, as well as the way aspects of culture are seen amongst the residents. Questions regarding the makeup of the Abyss, or the disease referenced in that one episode are fine things to leave hanging. Answering every question immediately wouldn’t give people a reason to come back.

I also enjoyed your Rokka no Yuusha review a lot. It didn’t have the greatest production value and it ended incomplete, but the mystery was a fair mystery that didn’t hide details from the audience, providing introduction to the concept fairly well with a unique character/setting aesthetic. Great character designs. Reading the novels forward, it manages to keep the suspense and mysteries in settings of grand battles, and provides backstory for more of the Braves.

Konosuba 2 is awful. Unfunny and a step down from the mediocre first series. Such a reddit show.
