Anime Review Roundup
Inari Kon Kon at this time, but intrigued by the title, I imported the DVD to take a look, and found a nice, enjoyable, light romantic comedy. Just what it says on the tin. It’ll serve to entertain with its delightful characters and engaging story, but the only thing that stands out about this show is the title.
RWBY Volume 4. Volume 3 ended on quite the cliff-hanger, with a magical school attacked, and characters hurt, or worse. The protagonist team splits up in this collection, to go on adventures of their own, or to face their inner demons and deal with the trauma of prior events, It’s a dramatic high-point for this CG animation from Rooster Teeth, which surprisingly lives up to its aspirations to be a US originated anime.
Tokyo Godfathers again. I know it’s barely been half a year, but this heart-warming tale of three homeless people finding an abandoned baby is one of Satoshi Kon’s most accessible films, and it’s always watchable. What’s more, it’s finally got a UK Blu-ray release, and there are aspects of this disc definitely worth reviewing, or re-reviewing as the case may be. Click on the link to see what.
This Week I’ve Been Mostly Rewatching...
