Some recommendation if you are bored and looking for something easy to watch this summer. I’m not saying they are the best shows, but they are easy to watch with a beer
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 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.
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.
Before watching I was frightened that it could be a silly fan-service, crime flirtation full of girly blushes and macho stupidity – all knickers and guns. I was pleasantly surprised. The two main leads were equals in every respect, both with clear personalities and motivations and completely different cultures. It was over in what seemed like 5 minutes
I thought it would be really useful to recommend a couple of shows that you should see when your wish-list begins to look alarmingly low. These two shows are both foreign language and both fun/cool/sexy and at the same time have a great story. I commend them for your viewing pleasure
This is a great show, the graphics are great, it’s set in space and space sure feels vast and intimidating. The character design is good with clear personalities capable of displaying a broad range of emotions and reactions all acted by excellent voice actors. There are elements of drama, comedy and suspense.
One of a series of posts to recommend some science fiction TV shows to you. Maybe you have seen them and maybe you haven’t. Hopefully the list will give you pause for thought
