Feeling sorry for her granddaughter’s future, Kohaku, a great witch, sends Hitomi to the past, the year 2018.

Ulysses: Jeanne D’arc to Renkin no Kishi (First Impression)

While I love the art and character design so far, the story itself felt like it wasn’t explained thoroughly enough. It was disorientating and most of the setting is implied through background conversations and little hints from our main characters. While I love the idea of alchemy playing a big part in the story, the mixture of alchemy and fantasy creatures like fairies felt weird and out of place. The first episode is mainly for Montmorency and establishing his character and position in the setting, but the way the entire episode was executed felt disjointed and unorganized.

Tokyo Ghoul:re 2nd Season (First Impression)

Honestly, the first episode had me pretty confused. It seemed like some time has passed since Kaneki reawakened, and his hair color changed again? Maybe the manga readers have a better idea of what happened in between. But regardless this is it boys and girls! The final season of Tokyo Ghoul, I have very high expectations for the story and character development I hope to see everyone from both the original Tokyo Ghoul as well as our favorite from Tokyo Ghoul:re all get some screen time and end this awesome series with a bang.

Hinomaruzumou (First Impression)

I always thought that Sumo was about big men pushing each other out of the ring and, oh boy, was I wrong about that. Sumo is a much more intense and honorable sport than I originally thought! The anime itself looks and feels great, the artwork and animation are dynamic and colorful while the story is passionate and inspiring. I love an overpowering main character, and Ushio is just the guy to fill that spot!

Ore ga Suki nano wa Imouto dakedo Imouto ja Nai (First Impression)

A perfect little sister…becoming famous in an otaku hobby…the story already sounds very familiar. Anyway, while the premise isn’t anything new, the execution of the story is actually quite entertaining. The character themselves, while still cliché, have a freshness (is that a word?) to them because we haven’t seen these types of characters in a while (or that might just be me…). But let’s talk about the artwork. I always talk about derpy faces on some of my reviews of other anime but when I say that, I usually mean there were a few scenes that had it. Well, Ore ga Suki nano wa Imouto dakedo Imouto ja Nai has a derpy face IN EVERY SCENE. The art is uncomfortably bad and that’s sugar coating it.
