In many ways, I lament how weak the series’ opening arc with Neku and Shiki was in comparison to its incredibly strong back half. And I’m not only saying that because I know how powerful this story can be; at this point of my watch, my positive impressions are less about nostalgia, and more about the merits of this adaptation. It’s still not perfect – there are some hiccups even in this episode – but TWEWY the Animation is really, really good. I just wish it had been this good from the start.
