Out of 100 Nobles watching...
75 were impressed!
15 would like more added to the plot
10 had gripes with the pacing

After watching the Memory Snow OVA I was excited to watch Hyouketsu no Kizuna as it looked like it promised a good deal more in the way of story advancement. "Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu - Hyouketsu no Kizuna"
Is a prequel OVA taking place canonically in the middle of the first season of the Re:Zero anime but with significant flashbacks to Emelia's past before meeting Subaru.

I really enjoyed the sound and art design of this special and it really stood out with attention to various details. read more

15 have nothing to say, it’s just a do-nothing OVA
10 just want Subaru to die in a fire

A very quick write up for a very small entry. This was an hour long OVA apparently aired between episode 5 and 6 of Re:Zero season 1. I watched the show outside of it’s aired season so the existence of this OVA eluded me almost completely and watching it I didn’t really know where it sat in the timeline of the show until after the fact.

The OVA sits really well in the timeline of the story and was a fun getaway read more

BNA (Anime) add (All reviews)
Out of 100 Nobles watching…
69 were impressed
15 had absolutely no stake in the plot
8 had grievances with the world and immersion issues
8 were expecting trigger quality animation and didn’t get it

BNA is a new original series created by Trigger that has further cemented my growing disappointment with the studio. There are certainly bits to be enjoyed in BNA and I’ll give it some credit, but the show ultimately joins the rapidly growing list of post Zootopia furry IP’s that with never have as believable and immersive a universe as the series they are so desperately aping.

BNA is about a world where there are beast-men read more

78 were impressed
12 were bored with the do-nothing plot
10 didn’t care for the direction of the last 3rd of the season

This will be in an offload of a few catchup reviews so it likely won’t be as detailed as my usual thoughts. I liked The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki a hefty margin more than both the seasons of Haruhi. Whether that’s saying much given my opinion of the original I don’t know, but I do feel this spinoff was left a tad forgotten.

Nagato Yuki-chan no Shoushitsu is a series loosely based on the alternate reality established in Suzumiya Haruhi no read more

68 were impressed!
15 died of old age
10 fell asleep during exposition
7 thought the story was weak overall

The Haruhi series is an endless font of entertainment. Every time I think I’ve finished this potato chip anime MAL sneaks in the room and switches out my trash with a fresh opened bag of chips. To be clear I keep thinking I’ve finished all there is but it turns out I missed something and more Haruhi crawls out of the woodwork that I didn’t know about. The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya is a movie follow up to the (in my opinion) legendarily mediocre KyoAni read more

60 were impressed.
25 were lost in a horrible time-based anomaly
10 found little engagement from the plot
5 didn’t care for characters or had other gripes

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya is certainly a dividing catalyst among otaku, and I can certainly understand why. It’s first season airing in 2006 I feel was very representative of the direction the industry would go in the coming years. I found the first season to be fairly typical with a few quirks and some intrigue to distinguish itself from the crowd of bland slice of life anime. The second season however, made what I can only describe read more

Tenki no Ko / Weathering With You – (Anime Movie)
Out of 100 Nobles watching…
85 were impressed!
10 disliked the melodrama/plot conveniences
5 just don’t care for the genre

Tenki no Ko is another big boi heavy hitting actually shown in movie theatres feature film from CoMix Wave Films studio. At a beefy 1hr 54 min runtime this movie is certainly a long ride and that’s a good thing. Overall, I found the movie was a very enjoyable experience if not a little slow and cinematic at times. I would recommend anyone to watch it, but it’s not really sitting in the realm of an all-time favorite for me, read more

Mob Psycho 100 II continues to perform just as admirably as it did in its first course if not even going further beyond in its performance and execution than it did in season 1. In my thoughts on season one I mentioned it was “a miracle” that we could get something so masterfully crafted in the modern climate of animation production, but what does that mean when that miracle is performed again? I think it’s clear that Mob Psycho II is nothing short of divinity and is anime incarnate. A likely now dated meme would say this show has read more

10 had issue with plot pacing and character actions/resolutions

I didn’t ask for this, no really, I didn’t. I enjoy watching something miserable and getting sad as much as the next Doomer in fact it’s one of the easiest moods to strike for an easy score from me, but Koe no Katachi was more than I wanted to deal with the evening I watched it. All of this praise, acclaim, and criticism that floated by me in the months since this film’s release completely failed to give me any idea of what this movie is actually about. So, I read more

Promare (Anime) add (All reviews)
Out of 100 Nobles watching…
65 were impressed!
15 are disappointed in the use of CG
10 thought the visuals were good but not readable
10 are tired of watching the same movie over and over again

Late to the party as usual, but here we go. Promare is yet another production by acclaimed studio Trigger. I feel like there isn’t a whole lot to be said about Promare that doesn’t apply to literally every other Trigger production, however I’ll try my best and parse out specifics. Overall Promare is just fine. It makes a reasonable showing and if you haven’t seen any Trigger films/shows before than I imagine it read more
