Yasuke: Live by the Sword, Die by the Sword

I didn’t think I would be going down this path again.

High-Rise Invasion: Movie Night in the Eighties

When I started anime blogging, having always been a bystander to much of the online discourse, I swore two things to myself.

1. Don’t be pretentious.

2. Don’t be negative.

That was my prime directive, and throughout the two and a half years of Shallow Dives, I think I’ve been pretty good at following those rules. That hasn’t meant I have been critical though. I have made my thoughts clear on things like the Bunny Girl Senpai Movie, Fate/Extra Last EncoreMirai Nikki, and the last half of Babylon. I’ve also been fair to series I love where they fall short, Like the back half of High School DxD’s third season, the back half of Tensei Slime or the Date A Live’s animation in its third season. I live by the idea of fairness, and looking at things for what they are, not what I want them to be. So when it came to watching and writing a post up about his series, I looked back on my two rules and remembered why I am here. After the cut let’s take a dive into the Netflix ‘original’ anime series: High-Rise Invasion.
