Koi wa Sekai Seifuku no Ato De- Great Premise Just Okay Everything Else

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.

Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai S3- What Money Can Accomplish

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.

DATE A LIVE IV- Tumbling Tumbling Down

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. If you go back to my weekly updates, you can see my enthusiasm die down for the series at the appropriate moments when it really dawned on me that this adaptation was going to be as flawed as the other seasons after the first.

Murenase! Shiiton Gakuen- Anime Animal Planet

It kind of ended up like Bokuben’s anime.

Personally don’t believe that the series requires a full-on overview so I’ll keep things short and simple about it. Although, I think the statement is enough to explain things.

Azur Lane: Lessons Unheeded

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?

Lord El Melloi II Case Files Mini-Review: Whydunit

It’s a bit tough to discuss this series as a whole for a number of things

  1. I never read the novels.
  2. It’s an adaptation of said novel series but it’s adapting the middle segment of it
  3. The magic system replaces the usual elements of a traditional mystery

And for that reason, I’m going to keep it short.

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 5- Vento Aureo: Going Above and Beyond

And so the story of our bedazzling gang-stars comes to a close, with a dual ending I assume most anime-only watchers wouldn’t have expected. It also would have been way too easy if I titled this post a Golden Experience so I had to resist.

Notice: I wrote 99% of this review two weeks ago and now just finished watching the last episode so watch out for some addition to the post since some last minute things were addressed.
