Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony Chapter 1

With the prologue out of the way, I was able to get into the action with chapter 1.
Which is great, because the prologue didn’t have an investigation / class trial.

Chapter 1 was a lot of fun, and brought a lot of nostalgia back seeing as its been many years since I have played a Danganronpa game. The soundtrack and class trial both were really enjoyable.

I’m sort of on the fence as to how much I really like the investigation phase. You basically just go around and examine everything, gathering truth bullets. I don’t think it’s possible to miss anything, because the class trial won’t trigger until everything has been examined – which I think is a bit of a shame. It’d be neat to be able to miss evidence, putting you at a disadvantage in the class trial.

Maybe something like, if you’re missing a truth bullet that you need in the class trial, you take some creditibility / influence damage and someone says something like “Did you miss X?”, and then you gain the truth bullet at that point so that you can move forward. I guess just a way for the game to say that you didn’t do a good enough job at investigating. I think that’d be neat at least.

That said, the one enjoyable part of the investigation phase is being able to come up with your own idea of what happened prior to the class trial.

Anyways, let’s talk more about Chapter 1 specifically.

Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony Prologue

I’ve started playing Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony!
I actually noticed it on Steam thanks to Doki Doki, and saw that it was 50% off.
I’ve played both Danganronpa 1 and 2, as well as watched the anime, but I sort of forgot that there was a new game that I hadn’t yet played.

The moment I loaded up the game and heard the signature Danganronpa theme, I was hit with a wave of nostalgia and excitement!

A No Game No Life: Zero Rewatch

I just rewatched No Game No Life: Zero, even though it’s only been about a month from when I first watched it. Part of me just thought it’d be fun to watch again, and that maybe I’d get some inspiration / motivation from watching it a second time.

Not really sure where I wanted to go with this post though!
If you haven’t seen NGNL: Zero, you should definitely check it out. It’s the best anime movie I’ve ever seen (I haven’t seen too many though..) and while it’s a “prequel” to No Game No Life, I think it’d still make for a good standalone movie. That said, it definitely makes sense to watch No Game No Life beforehand – or maybe it’d be neat to watch NGNL: Zero first? The movie does spoil a little bit of NGNL though.

Speaking of which, there will be NGNL: Zero spoilers in this post.

Handa-kun & Barakamon – Prequel / Sequel Disconnect

Still watching anime G – it’s a bit longer than the previous anime in the challenge.
Good news is that I haven’t dropped it.
Everything else will have to wait till I post about it!

But I still wanted to write about an anime.
I’m starting to see the allure of episodic reviews – so many more opportunities to both read and write about anime. Thinking I’ll try it out with an anime or two next season.

And that brings me to Handa-kun.

I watched Handa-kun a while ago… maybe 6 months ago? Time goes by so fast I can’t remember for sure, plus my life was a blur back then – I wasn’t really doing anything productive so it all sort of melds together.

Anyways, I thought I’d write something about Handa-kun, which ended up becoming something about Handa-kun and it’s relationship to Barakamon.

Anything + Anime = Better?

What is the deal with anime? Something about it just seems to catch my interest, or increase my enjoyment for some reason.

My YouTube recommendations went off the deep end a while ago, filled almost completely with Japanese songs with anime thumbnails. And you know what? Those anime thumbnails totally work on me. I see a picture of an anime girl I haven’t seen before, and I click on it.

Anyone else get this?

Never Seen Before Review: Fight!!

Welcome back for another never seen before review.

Today I will be reviewing the anime Fight!!. I have never seen this anime, but I am going to review it anyways. Usually a reviewer has to actually view the product in order to review it, but through sheer willpower I am able to skip that step and get straight to the review (with the help of synopsis and other minor details on MyAnimeList).

I know you have all been on the fence about Fight!!, so it’s about time someone bit the bullet and published a review about the anime. Finally you will all be able to make an informed decision as to whether watching the entire season of Fight!! is worth your time. You can all thank me later.

Let’s get to it.

Completed Ginga Eiyuu Denetsu? Check.

I’ve finished Legend of the Galactic Heroes!

So I started watching this anime on August 13, and have completed it on September 6. Which means I’ve watched 110 episodes in 24 days, for an average of 4.58 episodes per day. Crazy to think about! I swear I have a life outside of anime…

Legend of the Galactic Heroes is a very impressive anime. It was thanks to GTO that I had an itch to try out another older, classic anime. So I’m very glad I’ve broadened my horizons, so to speak. I used to be apprehensive about watching older anime because I really enjoy the animation in newer anime, but I’ve since learned that the charm of anime transcends something as simple as animation quality.

Now this is the most difficult part of this post – what do I write about? I have a feeling that most of you reading this have never watched the anime, due to the daunting length. I feel that my last post on Legend of the Galactic Heroes did a good job of summing up what I love about the anime, so I think I will write something else here.

Legend of the Galactic Heroes – Just As Great As They Said It Would Be (Spoiler-free Halfway Review)

I am now halfway through Legend of the Galactic Heroes.

I’ve been hooked pretty much since episode 1! It’s an excellent anime so far. A lot has happened over the course of 55 episodes – but there are three aspects in particular I want to talk about here.

I also want to try and avoid spoilers, just in case there is anyone else out there that really wants to watch Legend of the Galactic Heroes, but is still on the fence because of it’s length (110 episodes).

So let’s talk Ginga Eiyuu Denetsu (Legend of the Galactic Heroes)!

Kubikiri Cycle – How Much Is Too Much? (Rant / Thoughts)

Just finished the Kubikiri Cycle, figured I might as well write about it!

The thing is, I actually watched the first 7 episodes, then proceeded to watch 30 episodes of Legend of the Galactic Heroes, before coming back and watching (skimming) the final 8th episode.

And you know what? That says a lot about how I feel about Kubiriki Cycle.

Kubikiri Cycle spoilers ahead.
Also, Kubikiri Cycle rant ahead.

Studios HATE him! Find out what Yomu thinks Grancrest Senki did wrong… (Grancrest Senki Review)

I have completed Grancrest Senki, and with that I have many thoughts about the anime. I love fantasy anime, and while I enjoyed Grancrest Senki, it definitely has some issues that I want to point out. It also fell into the same trap that many other fantasy anime fall into..

Naturally, there will be Grancrest Senki spoilers ahead.

I ended up writing quite a bit about Grancrest, almost entirely ripping on the anime haha (hence the clickbait title). If you want to avoid spoilers, you can skip to the end, to my overall conclusion for the tl:dr review, as well as my final thoughts! 🙂

But first, how did my predictions hold up?
