Netflix’s track record with their ‘original anime’ have been hit or miss with the scale leaning more to miss these days. While I am glad that another company is trying to stand up against the Crunchyroll monopoly (with Disney waiting in the wings), I do wish their fair would be a bit better. Case in point is the show we are looking at today. One that does a lot good, but with missteps that are too big to ignore. Join me after the cut as we take a dive into Super Crooks.
Fall 2022 is reaching its climax and it has been an overall strong season overall! Plenty of good shows, some surprises and a few that weren’t as good as you would expect. As always I have my thoughts as we reach the last quarter and it’s time to get into them! So after the cut, let’s see where I stand after eight episodes!
This show is something else, and you get that right from the music. The Tune of the Week is the opening theme of Akiba Maid War: Medio Daikaten by the main cast!
A booty in a ninja outfit is always a stellar one! The Bi-Weekly Booty is Shigure from History’s Strongest Disciple Kenichi!
This is a series I’ve been meaning to get to for years. When the news of the remake came out I knew that it would be something I wanted to check out. A series that so many fans adore, yet seems to have vanished into the annals of time. A part of the Nasuverse that has spawned a billion dollar franchise, yet has next to no name recognition. Now that it has come out though, does it stand up to expectations? Or should it have been kept where it was. Well after the cut, let’s take a dive into the first route of Tsukihime: A Piece of Blue Glass Moon and find out.
It’s been a while since I look back at this series, but I finally finished the first season and I have my thought on it. Is the military sapce anime with extremely good looking boys still good? Or has the slow grind of the fight finally worn it down? Well after the cut let’s take a dive into the second cour of Legend of the Galactic Heroes: Die Neue These.
Spoilers for the series, please read with discretion.
Jujutsu Kaisen was an anime that set the world on fire in its debut a few years back. With great action, fun characters and a vibe that reminded me of ‘street-level’ Bleach. It was another example of the possible Shonen Renaissance that the genre has been experiencing. And while some of the accolades thrown to the series may have been premature, I can’t deny that it is a damn good piece of entertainment. Which is why the prequel movie was something I knew I had to check out. So after the cut let’s take a dive into Jujutsu Kaisen 0 and see what’s what.
I’ve always maintained a feeling of ‘eh’ when it comes to super popular anime shows. You know, the ones that come out and have everyone and their mother talking about it. It’s all over social media, and everyone feels like they need to talk about it, or loudly proclaim it is the next greatest thing. Shows like that turn me off and make me not want to watch them, at least until that rapid fever breaks. It’s why when I watched shows like Sword Art Online and Neon Genesis Evangelion, it was well and beyond the time when the general public stop caring.
Yet, sometimes I break that rule and a show slips through regardless of those guardrails. A show that I just can’t help but want to check out. That’s what we are talking about today ,so let’s check out Cyberpunk: Edgerunners after the cut.
At this point, it just feels like this series is just showing off with animation like this.. The Tune of the Week is the second opening to SPYxFAMILY: Souvenir by Bump of Chicken!
Anime in 2022 has been the definition of Feast or Famine. There has been a sprinkling of heavy hitters, but a lot of stuff that has just been eh. Much seemed to having be saved for this season and now it is finally time to see if it does indeed deliver. Plenty to choose from, but after the cut, let’s see what is on my radar this Fall anime season!
