Mob Psycho 100, undeniably the fan favourite of the season and for a plethora of very good reasons. The mastermind behind the creation of the One Punch Man manga known as ONE receives another TV anime of his other manga of the same name. I’ve been waiting to write about this show since the first episode aired. Trademark sketchy lines and simple character designs are back on our screens once again in all of their over animated and breathtakingly stunning glory.
91 Days, a show that promised a new way to present an anime. A show that would throw away the traditional anime tropes and truly tell a story that was different to what we had seen before. The previews looked great, a true historical action drama! After the slight disappointment that was Joker Game, I was hoping this show would rekindle my love for period dramas. For the most part, it succeeded in that regard, I really did enjoy this show for a while but to say that it did everything right wouldn’t be fair in the slightest.
Charm is one of the most integral features in entertainment. Especially when presenting a character driven story where the focus of the plot relies on a feeling of connection with those characters. New Game!, encapsulates a feeling of wonder other shows of the season could only dream of and is done so through its colourful cast members, easygoing yet engaging narrative and clean animation. Video games are an art form which must be moulded into the final product through hard work and determination. When the staff working on a project care deeply for what they’re working on, the end result is one of passion and will always garner success.
