You guys asked for it, so here it is. Alice & Zoroku is a show that I watched as it aired but dropped around episode 3 or 4 due to a lack of interest and that exams were taking full control of my schedule. First of all, thank you to everyone who told me to give this another shot because this show had a lot more going for it than I gave credit for. Not only mixing up the general supernatural escaped test subject premise that’s been done to death but working so well to present its own themes entirely. Albeit a bit late, here are my full thoughts on Alice & Zoroku.
Although I’m still catching up on the season just gone, I’ve been doing my best to keep up with this new season of anime. In these weekly roundups, I’ll be going through each show I’m watching and talk about the episode that aired this week. Opening week is always the most important, creating a lasting impression is key to sustaining a hefty audience. Let’s see how this season has fared so far.
One of the most satisfying feelings as a reviewer is to see one of your favourite shows receive a sequel and for it to be so much stronger than its predecessor. Sparked with a fresh look into its animation while keeping the lovably useless characters we became attached to last year, Konosuba Season 2 is incredible. Not only has the narrative become more dynamic and actually progressed from season one, but the scenarios have only gotten more ridiculous – which works wonders for this show’s unique style of comedy.
