Kino no Tabi: The Beautiful World (Spoiler Free Review)

Wasn’t entirely sure what to watch from this studio (A.C.G.T.), so I decided to just go for their highest rated entry – Kino no Tabi: The Beautiful World.

I had no idea what to expect, what this anime is about, nothing. Just one glance at the poster on MAL and that was it. It seemed like it was going to be something sort of intense maybe. In the end, Kino no Tabi ended up being unlike any other anime I’ve seen.

Sakurada Reset Review (Spoiler Free)

Next on the list is A-Sketch.

Once again we’ve reached a studio / producer (producer this time) that had several good looking options to choose from. Noragami, Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches, Sakurada Reset, and the recently aired Kakushigoto.

Well, I’d already seen the first two on that list (Yamada-kun twice). So it ended up being between Sakurada Reset and Kakushigoto. I ended up deciding on Sakurada Reset because of the mystery tag.

So, how was it?

Urawa no Usagi-chan Review (Spoiler-Free)

The review this time around is Urawa no Usagi-chan, by studio A-Real.

A series of short 3-minute episodes, this anime was created to try and advertise the city / ward of Urawa, in Saitama, Japan.

Now if you look at it on a map, Urawa is just swallowed up inside what I’d call the Greater Tokyo Area, although I don’t know the exact borders of such a thing. It’s just not distinctly separate from the rest of the sprawling metropolis that begins in Tokyo and moves outwards in all directions.

But I guess someone in the Urawa city governance decided to try something bold to entice people to visit, and so this anime was created.

Scrapped Princess (Mostly Spoiler-free) Review

So the whole anime studio challenge has been on hold for a while now, and I swear it’s not my fault. I had a post drafted and ready to go for Elfen Lied, and was about to post it a while go, when all of the sudden I check A-Line’s page on MAL and Elfen Lied is no longer listed.

Not sure what that was about, but anyways, 24 episodes of Scrapped Princess later and we’re ready to resume! I don’t know if it’s a producer or studio, I don’t even care to look it up, really, it doesn’t matter.

There will be minor spoilers in this one.
That said, the tags for this anime on MAL also spoil what I’ll be writing about here.

Mixed Feelings: Vinland Saga (Review)

A while ago I finished Vinland Saga, but wasn’t sure if I wanted to write about it. That is, until now, because I’m not sure what else to write about at the moment so I figured I’d just write that Vinland Saga review.

The thing is, I have mixed feelings towards Vinland Saga, and I can’t properly convey them in a spoiler-free manner.

Meaning that this review will contain spoilers, just a heads up!

The Misfit of Demon King Academy Review (Spoiler-free)

With the recent anime season having wrapped up, I decided to take a quick look at anything that interested me. And this was one anime that did.

A demon lord, reincarnated, having to attend a demon lord academy checked enough boxes. Fantasy, school, and potentially an unapologetic protagonist. It all sounded good to me.

So how was it?

Anime Studio Challenge: A-Craft’s Ousama Game The Animation (Spoiler-free Review)

Continuing on with the A studios / producers, we’ve got A-Craft, and their only listed work – Ousama Game The Animation. At first glance, you may notice the 5.01 rating and think “oh no”, but… well…

I’ve gotten through all 12 episodes of the anime in one piece, meaning it can’t be that bad right? Right.

Once again, this will be a primarily spoiler-free review, as I won’t name names or delve into the plot itself. However, I HAVE to talk about the tone, pace, and things like this if I’m to sort this anime out properly. In addition, if it’s mentioned in the anime’s synopsis, I’m considering it fair game here.

So no plot details spoiled, but some aspects will be spoiled…

Anime Studio Challenge: 8bit's Rewrite (Review)

Funny story, I was actually planning on re-watching Rewrite, and then I didn’t have to thanks to this anime studio challenge.

And.. that’s the story.

So the studio / producer this time is 8bit, who actually has worked on plenty of other anime such as Infinite Stratos, that slime anime, The Fruit of Grisaia + sequel and more.

Anyways, from what I’m seeing, Rewrite looks like 8bit’s best work.
