A stunning, action packed three-episode premiere that welcomes fans int he know with welcome arms, but risks isolating newcomers with no prior knowledge of the series.RWBY: Ice Queendom – Episodes 1-3 — Anime Feminist
As the fourth episode out one of two cours, it’s… still somewhat sluggish, though it does a lot more in terms of setting up future plotRevered and feared (and with an endless supply of claret wine), Jahy had it all… until a magical girl absolutely wrecked Jahy’s day. And as silly as that is, it was enough to make me full out guffaw because of its The Devil is a Part-Timer! meets Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle energy, which is promising for future episodes.
I’m not I have high hopes for Kageki Shoujo!!, and feel confident that my gut feeling that this will be Summer 2021’s IIt’s still too early on to make any predictions about aquatope’s the larger story. What we get in episodes 1 and 2 is compelling, though I’m not sure if the magical realism elements will dominate the show, or if the production will find a happy balance as aquatope finds its sea legs. What’s ultimately clear from certain events so far is that there will definitely be a magical, otherworldly element to this series: I just hope that it won’t come at the sacrifice of Fuka and Kukuru’s tender, tentative friendship and potential relationship.
I have high hopes for Kageki Shoujo!!, and feel confident that my gut feeling that this will be Summer 2021’s strongest show will play out like a grand ballet: fluidly, thrillingly, and beautifully week to week. That’s thanks to PINE JAM‘s animation, as well as the stellar voice acting from Sayaka Senbongi (Sarasa) and Yumiri Hanamori (Ai), both of whom convey just who these two girls are at their core. Those elements, combined with the other voice actresses, the music, animation, and sound design, really elevated Kageki Shoujo!! in my eyes, and make it an easy, “Why aren’t you watching this?!” kind of recommendation.
I’m not sure I’d call Remake Our Life! good: at least… well, not yet. It has a lot of potential, but as it stands, things are still coming together and the show just getting its legs. It’s at a tipping point of sorts: it has the potential to go from average—which like, isn’t a ding at all; average anime are necessary to every season, and can often be satisfying—to a compelling story about getting a second chance to find happiness. Remake Our Life! also has the potential to really dive into everything Kyoya’s learning in a Shirobako-esque way.
