This is a ‘first impressions’ review of the Beastars Animated TV series (2019). It contains pictures and details of the show – It was pretty good but had some ‘flaws’.
This is an Anime review of the Carole & Tuesday series – a story about a musical, girly duo set on a terraformed Mars. Tuesday Simmons, (from a wealthy and politically powerful family) runs away from a stifled existence at home. She meets her soul buddy, Carole Stanley a struggling part-timer who likes to play music but finds it difficult holding down a job. The guitar and piano playing duo rise to stardom with style and a healthy amount of cuteness – but the sci fi backdrop is truly inspiring!
Tilarna is a stranger is a strange land and learning the hard way about how her relationships are influenced by being a cop and how they change if she doesn’t follow some basic (but not necessarily obvious) rules.
This episode had much more comedy than the last and it was really pleasant to watch. I’m not sure how the character of Tilarna will develop, she surely can’t keep going on as she is, entertaining though that is.
Bem, Bella and Belo need to fight a modified human to stop him killing young women. Sonia begins to realise that Bem and his friends may not be evil.
This episode closed the mini arc on the Vampire but didn’t open any new stories which was unusual, they normally like to leave us with a cliff-hanger. The show was ok I guess, not as much fun or as interesting as the previous episodes but certainly watchable. I’m still interested to see how the whole Zalada thing pans out.
This episode concentrated on the character Belo. It was about how difficult it is to make friends when you are a high functioning demon. This was a great episode, but I’m hoping that we can get into some proper stories next week rather than character introductions.
In this episode of Cop Craft (called, “In the Air Tonight”) we see the end of one story arc and the start of a fascinating new one. This was a great episode mainly because of the quality of the characterisation and audio. The story was pretty damn good too!
In this week’s episode, Masato, Wise, Porta and his mother head off to a village to battle the Empress of Night. Little do they know that one of them is related to her!
Shishio and Senku are fundamentally at odds with the the strategy for reviving the human race. Shishio only wants to bring back the unsullied, uncorrupted youth and permanently destroy the adults by breaking their statues. Senku on the other hand, wants to bring back everyone.
This weeks excellent show is called ‘Midnight Train’ and it opens with Kei back in his office at the police station, he’s checking his computer to see what it means when a Semani knight leaves their sword and goes off on their own. I wasn’t able to read much but it seems quite serious apparently.
The direction of the show was great and the development of the lead character was wonderful. I have such a crush on Bela, who I am positive is the older sister of Cat Girl from Gegege no Kitaro! The story was really good and the shock of a supernatural villain bringing us down to earth from a teenage high school drama was terrific! Lots of fun!
Toaru Kagaku no Accelerator (A Certain Scientific Accelerator), the top ranked esper, fights a DA Tank and a Necromancer who’d raised a 16 year old girl that had previously committed suicide.
The writing and direction in the episode were very cool and the pacing was excellent. The characters still need to develop a little more, Porta, for instance, was pretty much redundant during the episode, but the voice acting particularly from Masato’s character, Haruki Ishiya was really good.
There is a lot of excitement about the amazing animated tv show called: The King’s Avatar (Chinese: 全职高手; pinyin: Quánzhí Gāoshǒu) aka Quan Zhi Gao Shou. This provides background info and news in preparation for the release of Season 2 and the Live-Action series.
It has a good start and the silly-factor made it interesting and there was lots of fun stuff that I really enjoyed. Alas, in the end, the show was less innovative than I thought it would be and this will be the last review.
I noticed that the graphics weren’t as sharp as last week, not the blur, I just would have expected more detail. Story, characterization, and dialogue were wonderfully written and held my attention throughout.
This is a showcase anime. It’s a little like Gegege no Kitaro in that it’s 50 years old and has been done a few times, it’s therefore highly respected as a story and also an important part of Japanese Anime culture. There were never going to produce a cheap and nasty version of Bem and I gotta say, it definitely lives up to the hype!
Very thought-provoking, intelligent, exciting and fun. I really enjoyed the info about Calcium Carbonate as wasn’t aware of all its uses or importance in our society. So, it was a fun show and I learned something. All we need now is some disco-dancing-vampire-bikini-girls and maybe baseball, and it’ll be perfect!
The episode is called the Dragons daughter and we were introduced to her as the show opened. She assists her father or guardian, to run an orphanage and they both look after some sweet little orphans.
The series is based on the “momcom” fantasy light novels written by Dachima Inaka and illustrated by Iida Pochi about a poor dude reluctantly travelling around a World of Warcraft type world with his OP (Over-Powered) mother in tow.
