A story element in JRPGs and similar mediums that I can admit to enjoying is when a villainess becomes a heroine and I’ve often seen many people ask for more of this type of dynamic. One example that comes to mind are games such as Luminous Arc 2 and Stella Glow where the prominent antagonistic figure, a witch, ends up joining the party and becoming open to romance. As soon as I read the premise for this series during the season’s start, I was immediately interested in checking this one out.
And it wasn’t too bad, but it definitely wasn’t amazing either.

I actually forget if I talked about the previous two seasons at all.
Regardless, they definitely went and released two episodes this week at once and spent like 20 minutes for the actual confession to take place, ending Season 3 in a rather momentous paradigm shift where the primary couple finally confess to each other. For those anime-only people, there’s a whole boatload of drama coming our way because much like DAL IV, Kaguya-sama’s anime production team has already announced that there’s going to be a new season.

Back when the season first started, I was actually really intent on wanting to talk about this on a weekly basis just because I was so surprised at the change in artstyles being seemingly for the better.

All that fucking money and it still couldn’t save itself.
Spending week after week talking about how things will get way better down the line gave me a bad premonition of how things would go.
But hey, if you’re into creep shots of girls wearing high-leg panties and leotards, do I have a recommendation for you.

Back when the first trailer for this dropped, many had hoped for a singular, reasonable wish for this series adaptation to fulfill.
Don’t be like Kancolle’s anime.
Unfortunately, it seems as though that the same mistakes that plagued Kantai Collection repeated themselves with Azur Lane. Was this really a surprise to anyone though?

Yeah, it’s back and things look a bit better but that doesn’t mean the story is going to be salvaged this late into the game.
After Babylonia and this adaptation, I think I can safely say no amount of money or budget can make a good mobile-game adaptation unless you pull something completely original like Shingeki no Bahamut did.
