TL;DR: Basically a 1.5-hour long version of the show, with all the jokes and fanservice you'd expect from Konosuba!

The Good - The humor is on point, exactly the same quality as the show. Kazuma's antics are entertaining as always, Megumin gets plenty of fanservice, Yunyun gets a bit more screentime, and even the new villain is memorable. The interactions between the characters were a goldmine of laughs for me. Story-wise, it's a simple story about the gang visiting Megumin and Yunyun's hometown. Nothing special, but no one watches Konosuba for the plot, amirite? ;)

The Bad: Since the movie is basically just an extended episode, the read more

Going to keep this review short. For those who watched the anime series, you already know what you're getting yourself into. All the girls make an appearance and have some sort of role in the story. The main stars, however, are main girl Mai and the mysterious Shouko. And boy, do both of these girls know just what to say and do to pull on the heartstrings of not only MC Sakuta, but also the audience. Both of the girls get fully fleshed out over the course of the movie, and satisfied fans may gain (or keep) some waifus by the end.

As for the story, read more

TL;DR: Basically a bonus case that explores the Sibyl system and supporting characters (namely Ginoza and Mika) a bit more, but breaks little new ground for world-building or the plot overall. 6.5/10

-----

At 60 minutes, "Psycho-Pass Sinners of the System Case 1: Crime and Punishment" is less of a movie and more of a 3-episode bonus arc to Season 2 of Psycho-Pass. Our main focuses are Mika and Ginoza this time around, and fans of Ginoza/Mika can rejoice - they both get plenty of badass scenes, and Gino especially gets a beautiful fight scene towards the end.

Make no mistake, however - this is Season 2-level writing, read more

I had the pleasure of watching this in theaters in Japan, and the movie is just what you would expect a Love Live! film to be: 1/3 music and dancing, 1/3 anime girls doing cute/funny things, and 1/3 drama - an animated musical comedy. If you already watched the first 2 seasons of the show, you know exactly what you are getting yourself into. However, there is one huge difference between the movie and the show: the first half takes place in NEW YORK CITY.

As a New Yorker, it was an absolute joy watching my favorite group of animated girls take on the great metropolis read more

While Psycho-Pass: The Movie is a continuation of the story from Psycho-Pass Seasons 1 and 2, it changes a lot of the things from the show: the setting is different, and while Kogami is brought back again, many of the characters are new. These changes may be fine for some fans, but disappointing for many others. What results is still a great standalone movie, but may alienate many fans because it doesn't entirely "feel" like Psycho-Pass.


Art: 10/10
Undoubtedly the high point of the movie. The painstakingly-animated cityscapes and landscapes simply made my jaw drop. And the fight scenes - oh my god, the fight scenes. I read more

Recently, there has been a flood of idol-related anime. These shows usually follow the tried-and-true "new idols struggling to make it big" formula. Among these, the two most popular seem to be The IDOLM@STER (IM@S) and Love Live! (LL) (and to a lesser extent, AKB0048). I strongly believe Wake Up, Girls! (WUG) has the potential to join these other properties to become another great idol anime series, but some flaws hold it back. Throughout this review I will be mentioning IM@S and LL as points of comparison to WUG because it is unavoidable that this show will be compared to its more well-known brethren.

Saikin, Imouto no Yousu ga Chotto Okashiinda ga (or the shorter English title "Recently, My Sister is Unusual") follows the story of a young girl and an older boy who become step-siblings due to their parents marrying each other. The setup is pretty standard, but the catch is that the younger stepsister gets possessed by a ghost who's in love with the older brother, is forced to make moves on the brother to send her new poltergeist companion to the next life, and ends up falling in love with him in the process. Mysterious missing parents and ecchi, incesty hijinks involving a chastity belt then read more

Most anime series nowadays take place in Japan's equivalent of middle-class suburbia. Along comes Higurashi no Naku Koro ni (When Cicadas Cry in English), which not only chooses its setting in a rural 1980s Japanese village, but is a horror/mystery story. Horror is one of anime's least common genres. There have been very few well-done horror anime series over the years, and Higurashi is one of them. The setting plays a key part in the story's success, and is what makes the series so unique. The village itself is on the surface a peaceful and quiet place, with nothing but the summer cicada's chirping to read more

If you watched the first season of this series, then you already know what you're getting into: a very fanservice-heavy harem romantic comedy with good action, decent plot, and memorable characters. This second season doesn't deviate much from the formula - everything you loved before is back, and probably better than ever before.

Story: 9
The story here is even better and more complex than the first season's. The main characters are all back, and the first large story arc deals with Kiba's backstory and expands his character a great deal, while the second arc sheds more light into the whole demon-angel-fallen angel war. Both stories are read more
