TL;DR: This is shaping up to be the best arc in the series yet. Can't wait to see the next movie now. 9/10

Up until now, the Princess Principal arcs have all involved trying to help someone else, or trying to keep the Princess' secret from getting exposed. Which is all interesting and helps in world-building, but the girls have never felt in danger or been up against an opponent who truly tested their abilities. I won't spoil any more, but this is the first arc that truly feels like the girls are up against an opponent that is one step ahead and stronger than they read more

TLDR: Much better than Part 1 in terms of story, characters, and pacing, with more action scenes and actual character development. Definitely worse in terms of animation, with many fight scenes where they obviously ran out of budget and/or outsourced to other animation studios. 7.5/10

I left the first movie impressed with the visuals but underwhelmed by the story. I left this 2nd movie the exact opposite: the story was much more engaging than the first one, and they finally explain all the character motivations and made me care about what was actually going on.

Unfortunately, it was also clear that they ran out of budget for read more

Visuals: Beautiful background designs, creative character outfits, smooth and detailed animation.
Sound: Catchy and unique songs, perfect performances from voice actresses.
Fight scenes: Well choreographed, absolutely stunning to behold.
Story: WTF did I just watch? I barely understood anything.

As summarized above, the visuals, animation, music, VA performances, and action sequences were all perfect or close to perfect. However, much like the anime series, the story was cryptic and difficult to understand. At a high level, the plot is about the girls graduating and finding their own paths beyond Starlight and high school. The details, however, were very abstract and open to interpretation. The ending may also be unsatisfying read more

TL;DR: As good as sex, but lasted 60 minutes longer ;)

First off, all I can say as a longtime fan of Seitokai Yakuindomo since all the way back in 2010 (yes, it's been over 10 years!!), is that it was an absolute joy and surprise when I found out they were making another movie for this series. After all, it's not often an anime that debuted more than a decade ago gets a sequel, let alone an anime that's basically just dirty joke after dirty joke. So my sincerest thanks to all the creators (and apparently crowdfunding contributors).

Onto the review - so how was the read more

TLDR: Like the previous FGO Babylon anime series, this movie was very well animated, full of visually beautiful and sometimes moving moments, with a diverse and memorable cast of characters. However, the story is its weak point, because as expected of an adaptation of a mobile game, the plot is basically just a series of events herding the main characters from Point A to Point B to Point C.
Overall score: 7/10

Note: I am not a FGO player and so will not be comparing the movie to the in-game story. I heard some people complain about things being cut out, but since I do not know read more

I see that all of the first 3 reviews gave this movie a perfect 10/10. I can understand where their opinion comes from and respect people who think this was a perfect ending for Violet's story, but I have to personally disagree and give this film a 7/10. It's still far better than average, but the ending misses the mark entirely for me. I will state my reasons below, first in a spoiler-free section and then in a spoiler section.

Before I begin, full disclaimer that I have NOT read the novel, and so the source of my complaint is not "it is different from the read more

UPDATE Feb. 2021: Looks like Season 2 Eps 4-7 cover this movie, so if you've already finished Season 2 of Hataraku Sabou, then there's not much need to watch this movie. Just want to put it out there to save everyone time!

TL;DR: A 2-hour-long episode that dials the cuteness up to 11, with more than a few good laughs. Does have pacing issues and recycled animations from the previous show. Overall very enjoyable, but felt a bit stretched out.


Since Hataraku Saibou is not a particularly story-driven series, I was wondering how they would try to make it into a 2-hour long movie. The answer was read more

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
