If you’re anybody who is anybody within the anime community, you will have undoubtedly seen this handsome pair somewhere along the line. In all my years within this online community, never have I observed a single show completely sweep fans off their feet within one single season. The worst part is, I can’t even argue with how the staff at MAPPA have accomplished such a feat. Without any further ado, here are my thoughts on the show that needs no introduction: Yuri!!! on Ice

When a show that, admittedly, had a lot of flaws and was pushed to the sidelines gets a second season, there is always a feeling of caution towards it. What some would consider a waste of time for the last season, dedicating your time to another thirteen episodes can be quite the commitment. Well let me tell you, it is one of the best decisions you can make. Throwing aside the flat comedy and going ham with the action, drama and animation has re-sparked the light in Bungo Stray Dogs.

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.
