The Misfit of Demon King Academy ‒ SEASON FINALE

Lapis Re:LiGHTs

The series does have somewhat of a plotline, though it is thin and typically functions to link other components together rather than guide the story. ― This Summer 2020 series is the anime branch of a multimedia project that will eventually include a smartphone game and a manga. Based on the way it ends, and the way it painstakingly introduces about two dozen named girls (even at the expense of stray...

The Ones Within Blu-Ray

The greatest and most overarching issue is the wildly shifting tone that precludes any of the overarching sense of tension or creeping dread that a story about kidnapped young adults playing fundamentally dangerous games should have. ― Have you ever watched the adaptation of a video game you love and been disappointed by how poorly it translated to anime? That without a controller in your hand or int...

your name. SteelBook BR

The key to your name's success lies in how it uses its mysterious body-swapping gimmick and the more existential threat that Mitsuha's village faces to dress-up what is honestly a very simple and relatable story ― Makoto Shinkai may not yet be a household name here in the western hemisphere, and I am not really the kind of person to buy into the hype of him (or any other director) being “the next Miy...

13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim

Once the training wheels come off and its gameplay opens up, however, Aegis Rim goes from a good game to a great one. ― 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim is a one-of-a-kind game that blends visual novel storytelling with real-time strategy combat.
