Megalo Box- Episode 4: The Climb

Megalo Box- Episode 4: The Climb

Joe’s first fight makes quite a wave for himself by improvising his lack of a gear as a selling point.  A rather bold move for a rather dangerous sport where even grazes makes cuts across faces. Joe is up for the first sanctioned fight in his career and it’s up in the air if his experience and mettle of throwing matches will come to be enough where he won’t be doing anything of the sort.

The results of the fight are pretty amazing though.

Persona 5 The Animation- Episode 3: They’re just going to keep All Out Attacking aren’t they

As far as narrative goes, Persona 5’s opening Palace and villain serves as one the strongest and poignant introductory chapters of the game and even if it’s slightly altered, the story and impact of it is something I enjoy. The only problem is that this would make the 3rd or 4th time I’m going through it so the impact is somewhat lost on me.

At the very least, I’m hoping to see more casual moments with the cast because that’s honestly what we’re all here for.

Oh A-1

Persona 5’s animation worries me and you’ll be hearing that again soon before I completely drop that little description and assume that it’s just a given from here on out. I only hope Megalo Box doesn’t fall prey to too many animation hiccups in that regard. Not much else to really say other than the season is going strong.

To compound my hilarious worries over P5: The Animation, this week’s theme is the primary theme that accompanies the group of bad guys that act as the big scope villains in the Trails sub-series. While the games they show up in change and the composition changes in newer games, the key motif of the Enforcer’s theme is something many fans will recognize.

The more I look at this opening the more obvious the references they’re making are becoming, that and I’m starting to like it a bit more. Much to my predictions, the end of this episode is where the real meat of the series begins and I’m glad that they’re not wasting anytime getting to what I consider an early climax of the first big arc of BnHA. For those who haven’t read the manga, I’ll tell you right now that things are going to get pretty exciting real fast.

Megalo Box- Episode 3: The Base of the Mountain

Things slow down after the roller-coaster ride of a set-up episodes 1 and 2 where Joe and Nanbu get themselves ready for the fights ahead and set up all the necessary components of Nanbu’s “plan” to get Joe situated at the very top to face Yuri at Megalonia and save their necks.

But first, they need one more helping hand.

The season is off to a rather great start, which shouldn’t really surprise anyone since Spring is definitely one of the better quarters of the anime year. Aside from the QUALITY gold mine P5 the Animation is making, I think I’m at least enjoying the opening for it. Megalo Box is definitely going to be a ride for me and BnHA’s Season 3 is something I’ve been hyping up since Season 2 almost a year ago. I’m also watching Wotaku but since I’m horrendous at writing things about stuff like that, I’ll save that til the end of the season.

One of the few battle themes on the spotlight that first plays during the protagonist’s examination with the Bracer Guild squad that you ran into a couple times in the first game. I mostly love the opening seconds of the fight but it’s still a pretty exciting theme that plays a couple times throughout the adventure.

Persona 5 The Animation- Episode 2: More Cameos

The first little divergence from the game occurs but even then we reach the same ending. More importantly, we get to see the opening and ending for the series. The opening unfortunately has that syndrome of reusing a bunch of scenes from the first episode so I hope we get some proper stuff in the coming weeks. The song itself is rather catchy and the ending is of the same quality, just without the whole animation recycling, although the it’s mostly just a walk-cycle with the Phantom Thieves.
