Akiiba Maid War: maid cafes are a serious matter


© 「アキバ 冥途 戦争」 製作 委員会 委員会

It is 1999 in Akihabara and 17-year Nagomi Wahira began her dream life as a maid in the ton tone maid cafe-at least he thinks.On the first day at Wahira’s work, he discovers that her boss is to blame for protecting, that competing maids have cruel pages, and a 35-year-old mannen, another novice tone of Tokoton, there are no problems with shooting people without breaking a poker face.Despite the joyful and colorful surface, the maid cafe turns out to be the world of crime, cruelty and violence.

Given the title and tons of promotional materials, I was not surprised that this original anime would be more than a “normal” experience.This still did not prepare me for the premiere, which begins with a shocking murder, and ends with a delightfully disregarding shooting, in which a nice pop song played over a brutal one -sided slaughter.This is an incredibly memorable introduction, but also a potential double -edged sword.Although the second and third episodes are funny, they are much more subdued in comparison and I spent a lot of time remembering the climax of the first episode and wondering if the rest of the series will ever match his madness.

In addition, the characters of maids, which are to be the stars of the series, are now a bit boring except for a few single moments.There is certainly a place to change this, but from the third episode a funny and shameless manager Tonoton is the only character I am waiting for.I will follow the career of the maid Nagomi to the end, but I hope that she did not reach the peak in the first episode.

Blue Lock: There is no “I” in the team, but there is one in the striker!


© 金城 宗幸 ・ ノ村 優介 ・ 講談社 / 「ブルーロック ブルーロック」 製作 委員会 委員会

If I got a five -centuries each time in an anime related to football in the last 6 months, the word “blue” (Ao Ashi) had in the title, I would have two five centuries.Blue Lock is an intense but refreshing approach to the sport genre, in which the 300 best attackers compete for a place in the national team of Japan.The performance questions the value of teamwork, opposing it to the realities of becoming a professional athlete.Blue Lock shows that in order to compete at the highest levels of this sport, athletes must adopt their egocentric “type X” nature to become the best shooter.

Yoichi Isagi is chosen by the “Blue Castle” program together with 299 other potential attackers and lives basically in a football prison, designed to grow another superstar of the attacker/psychopath.This object probably has more to do with the Squid game than with football and was designed as Battle Royale, in which the defeat will forever end the football aspirations of a potential player.The intensive tone of the program results from the fact that participants basically fight for their football life in a program, which aims to show the true nature of the participant.Isagi’s relations with his teammates assigned to him are tense because they are ultimately competitors who can try everything to get one place for themselves.

Focusing on brutal competition instead of loyalty and teamwork, Blue Lock quickly becomes one of my best programs this season, with its unique approach dramatizing a real grind grind of sports talents.I just hope that this institution can afford several sports psychologists for these crazy teenage athletes.

Bocchi The Rock!: Life of a socially restless guitarist


© は まじ あき / 芳文社 ・ アニプレックス アニプレックス

Now Bocchi The Rock!This is my favorite anime from the autumn season 2022. It is a comedy with a talented but restless teenage guitarist named Hitori Gotoh, who accidentally joins the band led by the cheerful Nijik Ichiji.A large part of humor comes from absurd real and imaginary situations that come from our hero’s anxiety.I did not expect how strong both would be in the concept – committing seppuku with a guitar was not on my bingo card – and delivery.

It is nothing new for the anime to contain changes in the art’s art and aesthetics for comedy purposes, but I was impressed by the visual diversity of Bocchi The Rock!- Live action is used at some moments – and their effective implementation.Sketch in the second episode had me at the seams because of the way he deformed the Hitori project.Visual creativity and boldness are a gem, although other elements, such as acute dialogues and the performance of Yoshino Aoyama as Hitori, who sounds like a poor, tormented soul, and not a typical charming girl from anime, also contribute to humor.

Visual impressive is not limited to comedy scenes.In addition to the photorealistic background, which strengthens the performance without balancing eccentric elements, there are shots that give a strong sense of space and a large amount of impressive character animation.I was really stunned by some movements in the series.

To date, Bocchi The Rock!He hits all the right notes and I hope that he will keep his streak until the last episode.

Do it yourself !!: one puuuuuuuun !!!!!!!


© IMAGO / Avex photos ・ DIY !! 製作 委員会

I have a weakness for DIY home projects.Some of my nicest memories are watching the episodes of This Old House with my dad in my childhood, attending classes from carpentry in junior high school and putting cardi and gypsum boards as part of the social work project.I think that learning how to do something yourself is a valuable skill that helps to appreciate the work put into things they use in everyday life.It also seems to be a thesis, do it yourself !!Where conveniently called high school student Yua Sherufu and her friends from the title club are working on their projects, relationships and personal development.

Sweet girls doing sweet things are a species of anime with a long and outstanding story.However, I have never met the one like to do it yourself !!.Anime contains enthusiasm related to activity such as Laid-Back Camp and contains a cast of characters with greater diversity than a sack of a mix of trails, all with graphics and animation resembling a keep your hands off eizouken!.A single game of words from the series can be used to welcome at the end of the season, but a bad joke about dad never stopped me from enjoying a good program.

My only hope is that the program will spend a little more time focusing on smaller detail details, because I predict that do it yourself !!He will instill a passion for creating in the same way as Laid-Back Camp inspired people to discover the world.

Mobile Suit Gundam: The witch from Mercury: Gundam with corporations, duels and juriy


© Sotsu ・ Sunrise ・ MBS

This Gundam series takes a place in the new AD Stella scenery, in which, in addition to the tensions known from landowners and space people, there are dynastic corporations and a space colony resembling a school colony led by a powerful Benerit group, in which duels in mobile overalls are used to resolve the issue of “money, power, power,apology … even married partners.The best duel is engaged to Miiorine Rembran, daughter of leader Benerit Delling.Miiorine is, understandable, dissatisfied with her father, but fortunately for her a member transfer student of Sletta Mercury and her powerful mobile overalls Aerial can give her power to oppose him.Meanwhile, the mother of Suletta is plotting against delling.

This is an interesting scenery, in which there is room for many interesting relationships between students and a corporate game for power.The first three episodes provided a lot of the latter, but he hasn’t sold me the main characters yet.Suletta is charming, but has a lot of fascinating information that (at the moment) is limited to

short history

, and although I like the feisty nature and the generosity of Miiorine, hearing her rebellious intentions repeated over and over again makes her feel unanimously.

I am almost sure that potential customers will improve over time and I hope that the end of the third episode means breaking with the conflict and the introduction of some necessary school and supporting elements.I am less convinced of the future of the value of production.Mecha 2D action is fun and supported by the epic soundtrack, but it is less refined than

Prologue

.Meanwhile, conversation scenes show visible cracks even at this early stage.It’s nice to have a Gundam series with a female advantage, a couple of Yuri (which seems to evolve in Bi-Harem) and corporate maneuvers, but I’m worried about what the series will look like before the second run of April begins.

Spy X Family Part 2: Favorite family of anime is back everyone


© 遠藤 達哉 / 集英社 ・ ・ Spy × Family 製作 委員会

Spy X Family fans will be delighted with the return to the world of Ostania when the series returns to the second course.Loid, Yor and Anya Forger return to their ordinary antics as a secret operational agent, seductive killer and satisfied with each other telepathically, while trying to blend in with society as a normal, functional family.Soon, however, they are thrown back into the action, when they struggle with an unknown terrorist threat, they discover a top secret “Apple project” and live with Bond, a dog in a bow tube that can look into the future.

Spy X Family Part 2 is great fun, because like the first track, the series knows how to have fun, even if it must be serious.There is an optimal balance of action scenes and healthy moments, and many serious or intense situations are interrupted by the comedy of the cheeks, usually in the form of Anya, which makes exaggerated faces or Yor is simply yor.The Wit Studio and Cloverworks championship makes the series interesting because it provides viewers with constant commitment and the opportunity to see many dimensions of each character.

Atsumi Tansekaki

,

Hayami Saori

and

Eguchi takuya

They return to their roles as a family of fakes and do an amazing job to capture each of their quirks.

So far Spy X Family Part 2 definitely has a strong beginning.As someone who has not read the manga before, I can’t wait to see how the counterfeiters continue to develop and how they deal with another international conflict in which they will inevitably be involved.

Urusei Yatsura (2022): A classic, chaotic comedy returns!


© 高橋 留 美子 ・ 小学館 / アニメ 「うる 星 星 やつら」 製作 委員会 委員会

The classic from the 1980s returns with a restart, which reflects the spirit of the original with several modern improvements.The strangers attacked the earth, and after inadvertently thwarting their invasion, our “hero” of Atar must now repel the princess, they Lum, who mistakenly believes that she is engaged with him.Ataru must somehow balance these constant misunderstandings between Lum and his girlfriend Shinob during funny meetings.What funny, Ataru’s voice puts Hiroshi Kamiya, which seems to be a type of lost scum (Araragi of Bakemonogatari, Shinji Matou from Fate/Stay Night).

While other programs, such as Reboot Osomatsu-San, adds a modern character, Urusei Yatsura holds the 80s firmly and so far follows the fixed material. The new production team adds a lot of funny visual gags, strengthening the chaotic nature of the series to parody frustrating Rom-com clues, like when Lum unleashes the storm to the city to prevent Ataru and Shinobu from seeing each other, but cursed by the stars, lovers finish anyway. The humor played in the drama changes from the incredibly devoted Atar to the point where he would marry him, even though he was supposed to become a literal hermit, but then he immediately did not want to have anything to do with him when he saw Luma and believed that he got engaged with a princess They behind her. The performance is sprinkled with groundbreaking scenes, such as this, and problems with Atar’s relationship and hilarious terrible parents combine, creating a comfortable, reliable comedy.

As a fan of the original, I am definitely glad that I can visit such a classic again.Definitely do not sleep on OP – this is one of the most catchy this season, both in terms of song and visualization.

Look out of the next part of autumn 2022. Anibitez!
