"Valkyries grow stronger as long as they are in love" — provided you ignore the actual meaning of Valkyrie and define "being in love" as stripping in the middle of a battlefield to commit sexual assault. Oresuki was adapted by studio Connect and is 12 episodes.

There was one particular transition that had me actually laughing out loud. Chuunis? There's an underdog character who's bullied and ridiculed for something out of his control. Many of the designs are cool though, I'll give the show that. However, Sora is limited by his short stature. As it turns out... no, not really. But why the girls are given glorified laser pointers as the alternative is something I don't understand.

Damn. And the result is... niche, to say the least. Toma Shinjou wants to recruit new players after the boy’s club’s terrible performances. Tsukasa Mikogami (the politician) has just been elected as prime minister a second time… despite being in high school; Masato Sanada (the businessman) has a hand in a third of all global monetary transactions… despite being in high school; Aoi Ichijou (the swords(wo)man) takes out enemy combatants in a war zone… despite being in high school, and so forth. In a world where magic is everything, Asta and Yuno are both found abandoned at a church on the same day. Studio 3Hz’s Rifle is Beautiful is a slice of life-school anime.

Everything about it is dark and intense, from the way the characters carry themselves to the way the entire world is structured. Earlier this year, Dororo reawakened a long-forgotten fascination with samurai and feudal-era stories within me, so it almost seemed like fate that Mugen no Juunin: Immortal would come out in the same year and on the same streaming platform. Ahiru no Sora is projected to be 50 episodes and aired for one season. It may very well be an important point about their society and its fragile rigidity, but it still makes me slightly question what is otherwise a very compelling setting. Summary: A melodramatic premiere that contains a mishmash of shounen and shoujo tropes. In the end, the answer I settled on is "ex-chuunis or people who once interacted with chuunis." Though if the first episode's discussion thread is anything to go by, most of its audience are all for it like myself. Now, at this point, I've made Chuubyou Gekihatsu Boy sound quite lame. It's generic and predictable, but the atypical framing makes it feel satisfying nonetheless. Her bit at the end with the unmasked Joro promises plenty of comical banter in the episodes to come. What does Genzo do when he sees a wolfman? See Keijo!!!!!!!! The majority of the show's interior monologues come from her, and seeing the story unfold through her eyes and sharing in her exasperation at Seiya's antics is different and refreshing. However, there was something strangely attractive about its candor, and its inclusion of somewhat Shoujo-like themes is refreshing in a way I didn't expect. I don't know. Summary: Mugen no Juunin: Immortal delivers a gratifying experience both visually and thematically, especially if you're seeking a more intense follow-up to Dororo. MyAnimeList has got you covered! This often scares people away and he doesn’t let anyone pull his trigger. Much to her misfortune, she finds herself reincarnated into a medieval fantasy world where books are rare and expensive, which is quite the enticing concept.

It is the 2005 version of 1979 series, with certain changes in the animation and other things. While the thematic and comedic material is some of the most entertaining this season so far, it's hard to ignore the roughly drawn character designs and hazy overlay that feel like I'm watching the whole show in 480p when it's in full high definition. Azur Lane's premiere delivers very well in the visual aspect. Well, to be more specific, a peacock still without a mate since its movements are conspicuously awkward and twitchy. Hopefully, as more of the world is revealed and characterized in future episodes, the story will become more alive as well. While the season has a few weeks left, these are the 10 best anime so far. However, the first performance we hear, "Cloudy day" by Saku, was surprisingly impressive and attention-grabbing on its own, both visually and auditorily. Legoshi is a wolf that tries his best to contain his carnivore tendencies. Kandagawa Jet Girls caters to a very specific crowd (you know who you are) at the cost of losing everyone else. Instead of opening with perhaps the scene of a violent murder, Babylon begins with the calm and collected raid of a corporate office. Urano is reincarnated in the medieval era as Maine, a five-year-old. Our heroine meets a knight-archetype character and a mage-archetype character in very short order, and they will undoubtedly band together into a classic fantasy party that goes around adventuring. For a series that's clearly pandering to current players or looking to allure new ones, the characters that are made the centerpieces are one-dimensional and visually washed-out. Though not particularly compelling in my eyes, it makes for a decent watch. Over the last few years, more and more anime with episode lengths of 10 minutes or less have been coming out. Video game adaptations are almost always geared too strongly towards viewers who know the original material, and this latest Fate installment is sadly no different — you either need to be an experienced game player or at least have watched Fate/Grand Order: First Order (Fate/Grand Order: Zettai Majuu Sensen Babylonia - Initium Iter is optional, but recommended) to fully appreciate the anime. This isn't to say the show is without fault, of course. So ready. Maki Katsuragi, a transfer student, catches Toma’s attention due to his quick reflexes. No Guns Life is an action-drama series adapted by studio Madhouse. However, these kinds of shows are usually meant to just be blindly enjoyed; a guilty pleasure, if you will. The comedic situations? Anyone who's spent any amount of time plugged into the anime industry should have had a pretty good idea of what kind of show Kandagawa Jet Girls was going to be. What a shame. And when shots land, the piece of clothing that gets hit is "purged." Change the bullets to lasers, and even more of the dynamism is taken out of the picture.

Takuma goes from tripping into breasts to purposefully groping them in full view for a minute so that Natsuki can power up.

Interviews; Event Coverage; Novel; Anime & Otaku News; Anime Reviews. But then, there is a boom in the distance, and the tranquil scene is suddenly shattered by the roar of artillery and the howl of strike aircraft. Rather, it's the Sakura Empire against the Eagle Union and the Royal Navy (I always found it strange how this name wasn't changed), and the various "ships" are not actually ships, but anime girls wielding miniaturized gun batteries, torpedo tubes, and flight decks. The initial introduction of each character, from John Watson to Jack the Ripper, seemed like they just slapped on well-known detective-story names without any regard for their namesakes. It's very cute, to be sure. Living in a ninja residence tucked away in a corner of a futuristic city is Rikka, the eldest daughter of a Ninja clan, who looks up to her father—a researcher—very much. But as the premiere slowly eased me into its story, I began to gain a pretty good idea. There seemed to be a lot more focus on bouncy "plot" as well, and actual plotting took the backseat; Rin and Aoi are rapidly shoehorned into a race with students from a rival school, dramatic buildup and ironing out plot holes be damned, and when the race began, it took me far longer than it should have to fully process how the show had managed to get to that point at all. He expresses his thoughts and deductions in the form of amatuer rakugo, which does line up with the original character's brash personality and odd mannerisms. We were introduced to Shibata Genzo, a pro wrestler with a cute dog who dreams of making it big so he can run a pet shop and share his love of animals.

One of them's obsessed with superheroes, one believes he's the reincarnation of a half-angel half-demon... thing, one lives and breaths mobile game waifus, one goes around wearing animal ear hoodies and a tail (how is this chuuni though? Anyone who's read their fair share of shoujo might find this rather familiar—it feels like a classic pairing, where a diligent and wistful, but largely powerless, heroine encounters a cold but incredibly powerful hero who gives her the keys to make her dreams come true. Catch new episodes of My Hero Academia, Fire Force, Dr. STONE and more on Funimation. Summary: Board game lovers or simply those interested in finding good board games to play will find some amusement in Houkago Saikoro Club, but it will ultimately be a mild slice of life for anyone else. Summary: Chuubyou Gekihatsu Boy is quite cringey at times, but the characters' antics and kind-hearted natures eventually started to grow on me. Everyone is surprisingly calm about a fellow student being eaten alive at school, which only results in harmless gossip and a light confrontation. In most sports anime with a school club setting, the focus is on either or shared between soon-to-graduate third-years and energetic first-years with a lot to prove. Ahiru no Sora is a sports anime revolving around Basketball. And while the show definitely became much more enjoyable after it started clicking with me, it still wasn't amazing enough to leave that big of an impact. In a world where magic is everything, Asta and Yuno are both found abandoned at a church on the same day. Reading a lot of books doesn't automatically make you intelligent, but Maine proclaims her love of history books among many other non-fiction genres, so she should probably know better in her new setting. The sad and wistful feeling underpinning the on-screen shenanigans also gave the premiere a certain level of depth that it wouldn't have had otherwise. Summary: As far as isekai "hooks" go, this one's is lazier than most. Where it fails, however, is providing a reason for people outside the target audience to stay along for the ride. I'm not entirely sure how any of them are quote-on-quote "in high school" with these professions, but apparently that's the case. Since the printing press hasn’t been made yet, Maine must make her own books. However, we've found that first impressions can do wonders for weeding out the bad... while also bringing special attention to the good. Frankly speaking, I expected this anime to be little more than a piece of overproduced fanservice for people who already play or know about the game. Summary: Phantasy Star Online 2: Episode Oracle adapts the story of the Phantasy Star Online 2 MMO, and it's about as good as you'd expect. However, we're only ever introduced to three identifiable locations: Juuzo's apartment, a bar run by one of Juuzo's acquaintances, and a giant Berühren tower in what appears to be the center of the city. Babylon is 12 episodes and aired for one season. Beastars' well-constructed dialogue reveals a gratifying amount of details about sociological dynamics in just one episode, such as inter-species relationships and social group patterns. It's nothing new, it's safe, and it does flow, but it's also told in a way that was really just bland. Seiya is overly cautious refusing to fight enemies or accept tasks until he is 100% prepared. It's definitely melodramatic. Like most other game-adapted anime, it's made for the chief purpose of promoting a different incarnation of itself that exists in a completely different medium. The ecchi side takes things to a higher level than usual, but it feels entirely out-of-place. The triggers on the laser rifles depress extremely easily, and there's no need to account for wind, bullet drop, etc. In any case, there are lots of intriguing plot points and drama to be had here (I raised an eyebrow in appreciation at the show's inversion of the "secret blue blood" trope, in particular), and I expect to see some great face-slapping moments in the future, when the people who previously looked down on Melida get their comeuppance. The anime is 12 episodes and aired for one season. I went into this premiere largely unimpressed by the synopsis, and I remained unimpressed as the show introduced me to its cringey characters and their cringey and (initially) not-that-funny antics. Covering the hottest movie and TV topics that fans want. As the story progresses, moving away from corporate crime into something that is much more political in nature, its clinical tone persists... and the result is a show that feels very different to virtually everything else I've watched so far this season. The Fall 2019 anime season is packed! There's no need for perverted jokes or annoying antics here—Mairimashita! Summary: It's not the funniest show this season nor the prettiest, yet Oresuki is delightfully self-indulgent and invites you to indulge in its guilty pleasures as well. It also has to compete with Beastars, another show featuring both predators and prey in a modern setting that is one of the most promising shows this season. Still, I'm pretty keen to hear more. Summary: Hoshiai no Sora has the appearance of a typical sports anime and plays that part well, but deep emotional undertones paired with detailed animation elevate it to a must-watch character drama this season. Kemono Michi or Shinchou Yuusha: Kono Yuusha ga Ore Tueee Kuse ni Shinchou Sugiru than this disappointment. Thing is, he's a god at basketball, and his passion for the sport is as wholesome as it is intense. I also laughed a bit too much at the "perked you right up" gag for the same reason. If you haven't seen the underwatched gem that is Houseki no Kuni, they are on the forefront of what all CGI anime should aim to be. It wasn't funny at all, and the only thing it really accomplished was to set the tone for everything else to come. While seven prodigies solve the world's problems and a pro wrestler manages a pet shop, Motosu Urano (hereby referred to as her new identity, Maine) just wants to read books. However, the show isn't able to escape from the "dumbfounded main character" trope, which is only made worse by the fact the main character is meant to be a massive bookworm. The girl’s tennis club is thriving, but the boy’s tennis club faces disbandment. Maki declines Toma’s initial offer, but agrees for compensation. Summary: A well-executed introduction to a crime-solving drama that will undoubtedly be filled with anxiety-inducing twists and turns. Though it feels different, it's still a tropey isekai story at its core. when you're firing lasers. There's just something about the juxtaposition of gritty low life and sleek high life that I find oh so appealing, and the very nature of the setting offers so much room for introspection. Having gone in without reading the synopsis, it wasn't immediately clear to me why this show was titled "Babylon". She doesn't care for power. When the synopsis told me that the first thing our hero does upon being transported to an alternate world is to suplex the princess that summoned him, I raised an eyebrow in interest.

[Source: Anime News Network] Of course, as far as I can tell, this show isn't about being realistic or having a truly compelling story. It has just the right amount of over-the-top that occasionally leaks into the absolutely baffling, so much so that I had to pause the episode more than once to wheeze in both amusement and disbelief. For what it's worth, the all-star cast of voice actors —which includes big names like Tomokazu Sugita and Yuki Kaji—definitely sounds all-star as hell. The line "I couldn't really figure out what I find to be 'fun'" says it all. Maybe it's because I came out of last season's Nakanohito Genome [Jikkyouchou] feeling rather disgruntled about another misused cast of one-defining-feature characters, but I'm already tired of this show's entire shtick after a single episode. Both anime adaptations suffer from the fact that their source games' character rosters are simply way too big, and their characters are constantly competing with each other for screen time, resulting in a lose-lose situation all around. Another new segment will focus on the Makurazaki Typhoon of September 1945, while Suzu is worried for her younger sister Sumi. I imagine this will likely drive off some viewers who don't have the patience I think this series will require to enjoy. In fact, their very existence as a group is confusing since there is zero explanation for why these seven prodigies with seemingly wild schedules were even on a plane together in the first place, which lingers over any judgment of their character chemistry (though I can tell you it's already lacking in that department).
