Grancrest Senki Halfway Thoughts

Hmm.. normally I don’t write my halfway thoughts. But there are some things I wanted to write about Grancrest Senki so far, and I’m worried that they won’t be relevant enough in the second half of the anime to bother writing about in my final thoughts post. So a halfway post it is.

Grancrest Senki is a pretty lucky anime, getting 3 posts from me. If you missed it, you can find my predictions for the anime here. I’ll also be writing another post seeing how they held up + final thoughts once I’ve finished the anime. But for now I had a couple of things on my mind that I wanted to write about.

This one shouldn’t be too long of a post anyways.

Hinamatsuri.

Glad I decided to watch Hinamatsuri! I expected an excellent comedy, and Hinamatsuri provided me with an excellent comedy. In fact, I’d say that Hinamatsuri is up there as one of the better comedies I’ve watched lately. Plus Hinamatsuri is a cool name for an anime. Hinamatsuri.

I always find it difficult to write about comedies, because of the distinct lack of plot, and the fact that the settings are usually pretty average (school, city, etc.). So I’ll see what I can do. I was debating not even writing about Hinamatsuri, but I did get some nice screencaps that I want to use so I might as well write a couple words describing my thoughts of it. So you can expect a lot of screencaps.

I’ll try not to spoil anything, but I will be talking about the characters. So there may be some mild spoilers ahead.

I Was Wrong.. (Darling in the FranXX Final Thoughts)

All right, so my calculations regarding what would happen in Darling in the FranXX were off. My predictions were slightly out of line with what happened. I wasn’t thinking large enough back then. I forgot to cross my t’s and dot my i’s. If you were to go back and read my predictions post, you would not have an accurate idea of what happens in the second half of the anime.

I was wrong.

But you know what?

In my heart of hearts I know that I was right.
(I wasn’t).

So let’s get this over with quick, and then I’ll give my final thoughts on the anime.

Darling In The FranXX Eps 1-10 Thoughts

I’m 10 episodes in, and I don’t understand. I thought there was supposed to be something outrageous about Darling in the FranXX? Didn’t it get attention for something like this?

I suppose stuff like that just doesn’t phase a 1st class seasoned veteran anime aficionado like myself.

Anyways, I know what you are thinking: “Yomu, why not just watch to episode 12 and then write about the first half?” The problem is that I’ll run the risk of never actually writing my final thoughts on the anime. So the sooner I write something, the better I think. I might require the last 14 episodes in order to get that post done, you just never know really.

Remember Madoka? I did an episode 1 first impressions and predictions, and where are my final thoughts? Nowhere. Yomu failed to deliver his final thoughts on Madoka, because he promised to watch the movies first and that never actually happened. Madoka final thoughts are stuck in limbo. Sorry everyone.

Anime Strategy Game? Count Me In!

Recently I stumbled upon a fun and cheap anime strategy game on Steam. I’m a big fan of strategy games – both the Total War franchise and Paradox grand strategy games are some of my absolute favourites. Knowing this, Steam recommended a highly rated strategy game to me that just happens to be anime inspired: Lost Technology. Also the game was on sale, 20% off; which is pretty crazy because the game is normally $5.69 (Cdn). So I really only saved a dollar thanks to the sale!

And it’s turned out to be a really fun game! For basically 5 bucks!

What can I say, I’ve got an eye for deals.

Respect Nature… Or Else (Made in Abyss)

Made in Abyss = complete!

With that I’ve now finished three anime (Madoka, Sora Yori, Made in Abyss) that may have ended up staying on my “to-watch” list for an eternity. Thanks everyone. All it takes to get me to watch some of these types of anime is some commitment. Feels pretty good, and I’m glad I was able to experience a few of these. As for Made in Abyss..

I’ll admit it, I was way off on this one. I mean the only reason I avoided it in the first place was because I thought the anime was comprised solely of chibi characters (which it basically is, to be fair) and I wasn’t too keen on that style. Now that I’ve experienced it, I can say that it was a pretty dumb reason to avoid the anime. I’m sure we’ve all judged anime unfairly due to things like this before though at some point.

I really should have just watched the first episode, because that’s all it took to get me interested. So to sum it up, Made in Abyss was an excellent anime. Thank you WeeaBroDerek and moyatori for the motivation!

I was definitely wrong to try and put this one aside.
I secretly knew I’d love it too. Can’t even keep secrets from myself these days.
Now let’s talk about the anime!

4 High School Girls Visit Antarctica

Still haven’t gotten around to the Madoka movies, something about having to commit to watching anything longer than 24 minutes makes it more difficult for me. Even though it shouldn’t really. I’ll watch them soon though!

Until then I finished A Place Further Than The Universe. I’m going to be straight with you all: finishing this anime was a struggle. I don’t even know if I would normally have finished it if I hadn’t promised to watch it. It’s not a bad anime by any means, and I can completely understand how it’s considered above average for many. Sora Yori just didn’t do it for me.

Nanatsu no Taizai S2!

Wow, almost 4 years have passed since the first season of Nanatsu no Taizai! It feels like a lifetime ago. I remembered loving the first season, so naturally I couldn’t help but indulge myself in the world of the Seven Deadly Sins once again!

I even re-watched season one, and found that I hadn’t forgotten as much as I thought I did. But I’d like to write about season two here, because it was quite the adventure, and was handled differently this time around. I love fantasy anime, and Nanatsu no Taizai lines up with my interests perfectly. I thought S2 was excellent and much more enjoyable than S1, but had a few issues.

Here are some of my thoughts on Nanatsu no Taizai S2. I went a little nuts on the screencaps so this post is packed with pictures.

Nanatsu no Taizai / Seven Deadly Sins S2 spoilers ahead!

Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica Ep1 Predictions

I did it, I watched the first episode of Madoka!

And I feel like there were a lot of interesting elements packed into the first episode. So I figure, why not write my initial thoughts and predictions down to see how they hold up? Just my impressions from the first episode alone. Not going to write for every single episode, but who knows maybe I’ll write another one halfway through – it depends on how much the anime gets me thinking!

So let’s see how well I can judge the anime based on one episode!

Only disclaimer here is that I knew Madoka was a dark anime going into it, so naturally my predictions have been made with that in mind.

So here we go. I’ll start with my initial predictions.

Let’s talk Madok… just kidding, Medaka Box

I would firstly like to thank everyone for their suggestions as to what anime I should be watching next! The overall summary is that I will be watching the following three anime:

  1. Madoka
  2. A Place Further Than The Universe
  3. Made In Abyss

Hopefully I can get some really good takes on these three, now that you all know what I will be watching next! But before I got to those, I still had to finish up Medaka Box! And so here we are.
