Well... that was a unique experience. It really feels like a horror version of "Lord of the Fireflies".
One thing that I learned from this manga... Sakiko is too precious for this world. She's the Best Girl in this manga BY FAR. As well as the Best Character in extension.

The story is quite good and bad at the same time. The story beats, the plot, was fine. But the execution and the pacing was kinda bad. It definitely didn't aged well.
The premise was pretty unique (for the time) and the problems that was thrown at the main cast were good and kept the story interesting read more

That was a good 40 minutes movie. Though I felt like it could've been better if it was longer. Like, a good 1 hour and 30 minutes is probably the best runtime for this in order to flesh out the characters' backstories, motivations, and adding more depth to them.
Cause as it stands for now, characters just happen to be that kind of characters for the story to function. Like, the girl was just getting bullied just because. Or the other guy is [spoiler] just because. There isn't really a "why?" on the things that are happening. And that's a shame because if we had gotten read more

I like this more grounded slice of life CGDCT compared to the usual yuri-bait CGDCT animes.
There's this satisfaction when the girls are actually talking with their parents and getting permission for everything they wanna do. It just feels so realistic and there's this feeling of growth from the characters that we see from the perspective of the parents (like how they see their children going to their own adventure, that kind of feeling).

The story is as expected from a CGDCT anime. Average. The only plot thread that was fairly important is the MC's father. Other than that, there's no stand out in the plot.

What a good anime. There’s not much to say about this anime that hasn’t been said already. Hidden gem, most underrated anime this season, etch.
The story telling in the first cour was exceptional. With how the pacing is, the emotional beats, and character introductions that was out of the norm; it makes for an extremely fresh and unique anime. That’s how I can describe the charm of this anime. Though, the second cour wasn’t as good as the first cour. It had a lot of plot conveniences, plot threads that was revealed pretty underwhelmingly, and character changes that came out of nowhere. It was read more

Wow, this one really surprised me. It's a pretty good music/idol anime that I never heard of before. I'm glad I gave it a chance.

The story, while it's pretty fast-pace and a bit cheesy at times, I think that it told what it needed to tell from it's initial premise. But 12 episodes isn't really enough to flesh out the plot to bring out some depth or meaningful messages to it. Though I really enjoyed the story nonetheless.
But regardless of that, this show really has some trouble in balancing the magic and reality aspect of it. There's no fine line on what magic can and read more

Wait... where's Banana? Why isn't she here in this movie?
Welp, worst movie of all time smh

1/10
Not recommended


But seriously speaking, that's the only major disappointment to this movie.
The story, or at least the pacing for this movie is much better than I expected after the disappointment the two Camelot movies. The story base (from the game) is already great, the only thing the movie needed to do is to fit it in a movie format, and I'm glad to say that they did a decent job.
The game is better overall due to more fleshed out dialogues and better paced, but this movie is a great read more

Damn, that was a great Sakuga Compilation of the movie. Now where's the complete version of the movie? Huh? This is the full movie? What?

My opinions and thoughts from the first movie didn't really change much after this one. The pacing was still all over the place, and the character interactions are some of the weakest.
The two movies fails as adaptation and as stand-alone movies.
It's frustrating to watch as a fan of the game's story, with all the cut characters and noodle-wet interactions from the characters. And I imagine how boring these movies can be from an anime-only perspective with the butchered pacing and characters.

Sakugan (Anime) add (All reviews)
Slight spoiler ahead. You have been warned.

This is one disappointing anime. It started off pretty promising with Gurren Lagann-esque feeling in it's first few episodes. But it quickly fell off because of how the direction of the story went.
It got too episodic with it's plot which is a turn-off for most people. It also didn't help that with each episode, every cast seems to revert back to their initial personality every time just for them to "develop" at the end of each episode. It makes the cast and their relationship feels fake and forced. It's not a very good way for episodic format.

Aside from the high production value, there's really nothing spectacular about this show. Everything just doesn't have any depth to it and just comes off as incomplete. I feel like there's something that could've been done better. But I can't put my fingers on to what it's missing because there's a lot. I can't really list them all of cause spoilers.
But I'll try to at least give out the general problems and missed potentials it have. First, the story. It already failed on expanding it's world building because of how out of focus the episodes are. The direction is just jumbling on the characters, the read more

It's very rare to see an anime about vampires that has sci-fi elements nowadays. Both genres are like oil and water, genres that aren't supposed to be mixed together.
So after saying all that, is this anime that unique with a rare genres combination? Not really. It's pretty much has the same beats as other 69420 romance anime.

What's the point of watching this then? Well, I can at least say that watching this anime won't waste your time.
The story is decent but it's unique, like I said before, having sci-fi elements and vampires. But it's mostly a sci-fi anime about the first vampire who goes to read more
