Ranking of Kings is a life lesson!
Not only is it a quite original anime with its particular character design.
The young prince Boji teaches us that no matter how hard the life is, no matter how much people make fun of you, you must always keep smiling and move forward to achieve your goal.
It is not because everyone tells you that it is impossible and that you will never succeed that it will necessarily be the case.
Boji has proven us that if you put enough effort and willpower, nothing is impossible!
This is not the only thing that this series teaches us.It also discusses the theme of forgiveness and friendship.
After the betrayal of Domas, can and should Boji forgive him?
After all those bad things Miranjo has done and after all those things she has endured, is it really impossible to forgive her?
These are really interesting questions that the anime is dealing with.
This anime is a real jewel, you will not be disappointed to discover it.
What an exceptional episode!
From the connection of all the elements of the previous season and its OVA to Rudeus' false reunion with his childhood friend. And once again, not only did Rudeus not recognize Sylphiette (Fitz), he mistook her for a man again!
I invite you to watch and listen to the ending (even if it, unfortunately, contains a small spoiler), the nostalgic love this ending tells brought a tear to my eyes!
What a remarkable end to this season! Ufotable has really turned a corner with this last episode. It's the first time I've felt the characters' emotions so well staged and animated. Once again, I cried like a baby.
This is the best adaptation of Sherlock Holmes I have ever seen.
The anime reminds me a lot of a Death Note or Code Geass, but I personally find the resulting psychological warfare to be better thought out and expressed in this anime.
Before this adaptation, I did not know the character Moriarty in the Sherlock Holmes franchise, I was not a very big fan of the franchise, but now thanks to this adaptation, I can say that the character Moriarty is one of my Favorite Anti-Hero of any franchise.
Everything is extremely logical, the story as well as the narration, the themes are very philosophical and the whole is very engaging.
There is no such thing as good or bad, even the main antagonist of the story turns out to be a protagonist that our Moriarty uses for his purposes.
There are even references to James Bond and Jack the Ripper.
The opening and ending are both excellent and the musics/ost are all very well used.
I recommend this anime to anyone who likes novels and manga such as Sherlock Holmes, Lupin, Death Note, Code Geass, etc ...And who love all that is psychological and phylosopic warfare.
This episode was very emotional and sweet! It brings a perfect conclusion to this arc.Can't wait to see what happens next!
If last season's theme was revenge, this season's is clearly acceptance. Not only of ourselves but also of the world around us.Vinland Saga is a great anime, and I think the themes it deals with are extremely important.
Violence is not and should never be the answer.
Thank you Vinland Saga and especially to this masterful season for making us understand that.
Wow! This first episode (of an hour and a half) is a masterpiece!I cried all the tears in my body, it's been a long time since that happened to me and I'm not someone who gets emotional easily.I can't wait to see what happens next.If the next episodes are on the same level, this anime could be one of the best of this season.
One more time, this anime made me cry
Finally, they Kissed!
By the creator of Death Note,
Platinum End is a series that is like his predecessor, a series of a philosophical genre before being a series of a psychological thriller genre.
I admit I had a hard time with the first 10 episodes of the series, I'm not saying it was bad, but there was nothing original in its setting.
I started to be surprised and intrigued by the show during the fight between Metropolitan and the other candidates (the last fight with him).
After that, the series started to be really captivating, especially when Doctor Yoneda appeared.
The philosophical debate about god and his role was extremely interesting, if it turns out to be true, it calls into question many things.
For me the ending is perfect, it brings a lot of answers and also brings a lot of questioning, which in my opinion should not be answered. If there would be a season 2 (unless it is really excellent) I would be really disappointed.
I really like this kind of series where we focus more on the essence behind the reason to fight, rather than on the fight itself.
If you liked Death Note and Code Geass, this show has a great chance to please you.
This is the best Isekai I've seen so far!
Every episode has an impact, every episode (especially the last 4) makes me feel a lot of emotions, I can really see myself in Rudeus personality.It's been a long time since I felt something like this in an anime (last time was with Re:Zero).
If we omit that it's an isekai, the story is not cliché and is really intriguing.
And of course, the beautiful music adds even more impact to the whole.It's really well animated and it's really beautiful.
"Mushoku Tensei" is called the father of all isekai anime, and it is not for nothing that it deserves this title.
I can only recommend to watch it!
Danny Trejo (Machete), Snoop Dog and Keanu Reeves! do I need to say more?
Wow, what a crazy episode! The fights were so intense and so well animated.
Wow, what an episode! Even though I knew who would survive and who wouldn't, I didn't expect this. It's the first time I don't have the words to describe how I feel. Which is something really positive, this episode was extraordinary.
Wow! That was interesting...
I would never have thought of such an ending.Surely many people will not like it but I find this ending perfect!
What a powerful episode! It made me cry again.
It's literally the Japanese version of Breaking Bad in pornography
Wow! That was a perfect episode!
Between the sensations of a 'The Walking Dead', The frustration, and the intelligence of a 'Death Note' with gambling games worthy of the sublime 'Kaiji' series, this Japanese series is one of the best series that I have been watching for at least 5 years.
I can't wait for season 2!
Here we are... the last episode of this cultish anime has just been released and there's so much to say...
If you haven't watched the last episode of this show yet, watch it now and then come back and read my review, I'm going to spoil.
First of all, SNK is for me one of the anime that brought me into this universe, I grew up and matured with SNK.
Now that this series is officially over, it leaves me with both a sense of accomplishment and a strange feeling, one that leaves me on the edge of my seat, since I'd have liked to have seen a little more philosophical dialogue between the characters (for example I would have liked to know what Eren said to Mikasa at the very end) and more explanation from Eren on where the titans' powers come from (I may have misunderstood but I don't think it's explained why this "Alien" came to help and give Ymir his powers).
This ending is logical. It's not intended to provide solutions to humanity's endless quarrels. Eren knew very well that this was not going to be the case, but he wanted at least his friends and his people to be able to live without suffering, and this ending is exactly what it should be. Eren suffered enormously to achieve this, he had to take on the role of humanity's murderer, sacrificing his own people in the process, so that after killing so much he couldn't live in the world he would have built for them either, but in the end he succeeded in creating it for his people and for his friends.
I'll remember this anime for the rest of my life. It brought me so much.We can now officially say that this anime is part of history with a capital H and that it is, and I hope will remain cult.
Thank you to everyone involved in creating this masterpiece.
This first episode was outstanding! Can't wait to see the rest.
And the chunin exam begins!
WTF happened in this episode?The story and the visuals have no sense.
Waw! So much different feeling in this episode.
Animal Wolrd is a Chinese adaptation of the manga Kaiji from Nobuyuki Fukumoto.
The film focuses on the first arc of Kaiji "First Game: Restricted Rock, Paper, Scissors".
Since the movie is an adaptation, it allows itself to add and modify certain things, like for example: The fact that the main character has some kind of flashback (and flashforward), seeing himself as a clown killing (I find this really ridiculous and it doesn't match with the atmosphere of Kaiji, I really don't understand why they did this).
The special effects are really well done but there are too many of them, it breaks the rhythm.
The acting of the main actor is like night and day between the beginning of the movie and the end.At the beginning I thought he was playing quite badly (he didn't fit the character of Kaiji and it seems like he was playing like a robot, when Andrews (Michael Douglas) told him that he has to pay back his friend's debt, his reaction was "Ok..", I don't know...react! say something!).But towards the end he started to perform better.
I really didn't expect to see Michael Douglas in this movie, it was a pure pleasure to see him playing the role of Tonegawa (Anderson)..
Personally, if I had discovered this movie before Kaijin, I would have given it a better grade, but since I watched the Kaijin anime series (which is a masterpiece), I can only say that the movie is good because of the source of its adaptation (it's exactly the same story (with some weird added stuff) as the anime series and the manga).
I advise you to watch the anime Gyakkyō Burai Kaiji: Ultimate Survivor which is, in my opinion, one of the best anime in the genre that exists much better than this movie, and yes, it is better than Squid Game and I'm not afraid of saying it (the anime, not this movie).
There are also other series in the genre that I can recommend:
But before all of that, go and watch the series Gyakkyō Burai Kaiji: Ultimate Survivor it's really worth it (https://trakt.tv/shows/kaiji).
Wow! What an amazing episode!
Here it is, a real horror anime and it's funny too:)
It's been a long time since I cried in front of an episode
If you are fascinated by the Beastars, BNA, Aggretsuko series, and the Zootopia, Sing movies.
This series is quite similar but with a much more mature tone.
The end is a real turnaround (even if we expected it with the few signs concealed if and there during the episodes).
The opening and ending are excellent, I'm starting to appreciate Japanese rap more and more.
I highly recommend this series!
I've watched a lot of anime in my life, and I think this is the first time that I can say that an anime is really weird.
