Shokugeki No Soma Ni No Sara Episode 12: That Type Of Guy That’s Just Never Satisfied

hyf

So here we are at episode 12! One episode away from the season ender. I say season ender and not season ender because I’m 90% sure there will be another one. This show is quite popular, and I’m almost sure this season will end on an incomplete note. Let’s get into it, shall we?

We start the episode a little differently this time. We start with Shinomiya a chef that now runs a French Restaurant and passed the academy with flying colors. He is upset that students are being sent to his restaurant for the stagiaire but has no choice to accept. He, however, won’t accept anyone else but the election finalists. He gets exactly what he asks for, opens his door and sees a cocky Souma standing there, ready for his next challenge. He seems ready to wipe the floor with Souma though.

To be honest, I really like Shinomiya get it. If you’re one of the people who has followed this for awhile, then you’ll probably get it when I say he reminds me of THAT teacher. You know what teacher I’m talking about, the one that would just not give you that A no matter how hard you tried. The one that would deduct points for even the tiniest error. He still lives up that role even now.

Soma barely has the chance to talk much, but knows that it won’t be an easy task to pass in Shinomiya’s restaurant but regardless is up to the task and accepts the challenge. Instead of starting him with cooking like he should, he makes Soma start of construction and interior work on the restaurant. Makes no sense since he’s the cook but you know, he is THAT teacher after all.

Soma mops while Shinomiya threatens them with being fired. We are then introduced to the two other people working with Shinomiya. Gao Wei and Luci Hugo. They both mention that they have to come up with a menu and should hire contractors, but Shinomiya refuses saying they should do what they can on their own for the sake of the budget. Gui brings up he can have any budget he wants since he won the Pluspol award. He says that no one will give him money for this restaurant and is basically to proud. So proud the whole staff has to work on unnecessary things for his sake! Gotta love Shinomiya huh? Ahaha…ugh.

These two girls will only be here until everything is secure at the new restaurant and Soma seems happy to meet them. Chef Shinomiya’s right-hand man Abel is also here and seems somewhat friendly. Shinomiya scolds them all saying they need to get to work so they continue. Abel seems jealous that Soma is acting so familiar with Shinomiya though since he had to work like a dog to gain the position he’s in. It bugs him to the point of tears and the girls comfort him. It’s a pretty funny scene but I feel sorry for poor Abel.

The girls talk about how Shinomiya seems to be nicer after his trip to Japan but Shinomiya menacingly opens the door and tells them to work putting everyone back in the line in less than two seconds. Shinomiya wonders what Soma meant by saying he was lucky to train here and Soma wonders why Shinomiya is opening a new restaurant in Japan. Shinomiya says he’s lucky because he needs to come up with a specialty dish and that he wants to move forward and get better. Not that he wants it to be easy.

During the break, Shinomiya cooks for everyone so they don’t have to go out to lunch. A nice gesture on his part but one I feel has an ulterior motive to it either way. He makes something called a quiche. Everyone has it and loves it but Shinomiya tastes it and says he has a long way to go, begging the question of how big the food gasam would have been had he been at his best. He opens up the wine (even though he claimed the budget was small, freaking liar). He will only accept high-quality wine of course.

Shinomiya explains that this week Soma will get closer to his specialty dish. As long as he can keep up with the work given to him. We then cut to pre-opening day.

Soma is wearing the high-class white chef uniform which “suits him better than everyone thought” insulting remark but okay. I’m used to Soma being treated like a low life anyway, to be honest. The first customer comes in and the kitchen immediately becomes full of tension. Yet at the same time, everyone works in an eerily and quiet way instead of the chaos one would expect. Soma puts down supplies a bit loudly and Shinomiya threatens to kick him out for it. That’s how quiet he is.

The reason it is this way at Shinomiya’s restaurant is so he won’t miss even a single change in sound. I think personally it’s so he can be a hardass and fire people more easily but I digress. Soma does  his best but does struggle and Abel calls him arrogant for acting like he’s one of them even when the girls seem to think he’s being too cruel and hard on Soma. Soma apologizes and picks up the pace determined to become a core member by the end of the week.

Everyone else seems to be doing well in their own challenges, Soma’s friends anyway. Some of them seem distressed but it seems that they are passing! A few other students, however, are buckling under the pressure and starting to drop like flies as opposed to Soma and his friends.

Shinomiya tells him at the end of the day that the workload will increase and that he will get left back and fail if he doesn’t change. Shinomiya refuses to give him advice or “hold his hand” so he isn’t even really much of a good teacher either. Chefs will help the newbies learn the way of things and be less hard on the newbies in real restaurants! Why can’t he!?

Soma can’t seem to sleep and remembers what he was told by Shinomiya and the staff and the autumn elections in particular. It turns out he took the loss pretty hard so instead of sleeping he works through the night like he did for the Autumn elections. When everyone comes in the next day the cleaning and peeling are already done and everyone seems shocked and impressed with Soma’s work and how it seems that Soma didn’t even sleep!

Soma even though he seems to ask a lot of questions is doing well and working his way into the core group like he wanted. The others are treating him better and like one of the group as opposed to an outsider. We then see that Shinomiya believed in him passing all along even though he was being hard on Soma. No one objects to having him around but it Soma still wants to make a mark.

Since Soma is allowed to stay for one more time Soma wants to submit something for the menu contest happening on the last day. Shinomiya accepts the offer and Soma says to himself that he will shock Shinomiya with his specialty dish! The one they’ve been building up to these last few episodes.

That’s where we are left on for the end of the episode. I liked this episode and I have very complicated feelings on Shinomiya. He still reminds me of teachers I really hated back in middle school honestly but he’s a pretty well-rounded character all things considered and not a complete jerk. I’m also excited to see the contest results and honestly want to see if Soma can make a dish good enough that will make even Shinomiya foodgasm haha.

That’s it for now, though! Next week I will not only be posting up these ep analysis posts but I will be announcing my Fall anime lineup and a new format that I will be using for these posts that I think you guys will prefer. A new way of writing these posts basically. I’ll explain in more detail next week most likely on the 30th! Maybe a bit sooner than that.

I bid you adieu until Wednesday though!

 

 

Bungou Stray Dogs Episode 1 Thoughts

zz

The first episode of Bungou Stray Dogs came out yesterday! I winded up watching it late last night, as I do with most things. Today since it’s earlier, I can write my first episode thoughts as promised!

I really like this show so far! It struck me right in the beginning as having a D. Grey Man vibe. Which is good at least for me because I love D Grey Man. I gave it a 10 on myanimelist, and I tend to be very picky with what I give 10’s too. I can tell that this show is going to be pretty good. It’s one of those things that you just look at right off the bat, and know it will be a good show at least for me.

I like the animation and colors in this show. They look a bit darker in tone and it’s one of the styles of animation I really like! The opening and ending were nice too. I am really interested in the other characters at the detective agency, Dazai in particular. He’s a pretty enigmatic mysterious guy but he seems pretty kind hearted too. On the other hand, he might just be a manipulative or more anti-hero character but I’m intrigued that’s for sure.

Poor Atsushi though! I feel so bad for him, and want to follow what happens to this poor guy. I hope he can kind of create a makeshift family for himself with these people when he starts  working here officially. He doesn’t seem to be warming up so far, but I’m sure he will later! Also, totally called that he was the tiger the moment it was mentioned. Go me, heh.

I think this series would do itself a favor if it were less comedic. It’s funny and still a darker sense of humor don’t get me wrong but I think they should tone it down a bit. It feels like it should be more serious than funny. D Grey Man knew how to find that balance but I think this show has a bit of work to do in that regard. I’m excited to see the next episode, regardless of that! It’s going to have 2 cours so I hope I get to see a lot of character development! Drama too, as a writer that’s pretty much my dream for the ideal show.

This is my first time writing a thoughts post. As the plot thickens I’ll probably have more to say, but as of right now since I’m still getting the hang of this and there isn’t a lot to say since this was just the pilot. I might not have a lot to write. Despite that, I really hope you enjoyed this! I’ll be writing another after I watch episode 2 so look out for that! Feedback is appreciated on these posts as well, so feel free to leave those! I read all my comments from everyone and appreciate them all!

Been A Pretty Fun Day

So my frustration for the last few days has finally tapered off. Hopefully, it stays away for awhile. I had a pretty nice day today. It wasn’t anything special really, but it was just a really nice and pleasant day!I didn’t really get much done but now that I finally started reading Dragonfly in Amber I definitely do! It is definitely a good and interesting book so far.

I didn’t really get much done but now that I finally started reading Dragonfly in Amber I definitely do! It is definitely a good and interesting book so far. I wanted to get some things done but that failed pretty miserably. I’m going to have to find a way to rip my eyes away from it so I can get my own stuff done.

I didn’t mention it in my blog but I didn’t know that Diana had her own incarnation of Saint Germain as well! I was a little nervous because I was scared my version and hers were similar. Turns out though that they are completely different. I’d even go as far as to say that they are the opposite of each other. I never expected her to do that with his character, though! I always saw him as being a nice decent guy so it took me by surprise.

I managed to get to the middle of part 2. I think I’ll get to part 3, and stop there for now. If I can that is, this book is one of those books that completely sucks you in.

Other then that I didn’t do much today. I took a bit of a nap even though I wasn’t tired, which was nice. Overall it’s just been a relaxing leisurely day and I enjoyed it! Taking things slow every so often is nice~.

Divine Gate Review

1500x500

Ah…it’s rare that an anime I review actually has a PSA attached. Don’t watch this show people, you’ll be doing yourself a favor. For the sake of your own mental health do not under any circumstances watch this anime equivalent of an M Night Shyamalan film. Hm? What’s that? You still want to know about it anyway? Alright, fine. You win. I’ll tell you about it but don’t say I didn’t warn you. I won’t be held responsible  for any mental damage you might get from even HEARING about it. Here it is, my review on Divine Gate.

Plot: 

This the most jumbled, inconsistent Anime I have EVER watched. It almost makes me sorry for bashing Charlotte the way I did, but people I have to be honest. This show has way to many things going  on and doesn’t at all handle itself well like say, Durarara does. There are gods, robots, humans with powers, a council…um…a clown?  A school? A dude who wants to cause despair and kind of just screws with people? Oh and that gate? For some reason they want to shut it even though it exposed humans to the wonders of many other worlds?  I…OK?

Having all these elements in one place can work, but this anime has no idea what it’s doing. It’s like one writer was assigned to one section and they all wrote separate scripts. Then they got together and were like. “Hmm…why don’t we just staple a page of yours…and then put your part after mine…and that’s our episode this week! That’ll totally work right?” That, or this story only makes sense in the authors head, and they just decided to use him because it was a slow day.

Then again though, when your anime is based off a phone game with mostly just chess pieces, what do you expect? 

I’m not saying it can’t be done, but here? It was done badly. The worst of the worst. To top it off the ending is the most anti climatic thing I’ve ever seen. Well Divine Gate, I guess you may as well disappoint me one last time before you leave. :sigh: For once in my life I actually have nothing positive to say about this plot. One episode even just focus’s on a confusing play that comes out of nowhere and isn’t even needed and just…I can’t. I can’t anymore-

Characters: 

This show has good characters. I hate to admit it, but it does. At least the three main ones anyway. They were developed a little but all the characters were pretty stiff. Even after seeing one of their backstories, you still don’t feel much for him despite everything. When he meets someone from his past in the climax, it’s as stiff and awkward as can be. There is a shitload of other characters, but you don’t give a damn about them. You can’t, they weren’t developed at all.

Even the main character’s aren’t developed, no one is fleshed out at all. It was so bad, I was actually rooting for the bad guy, Loki to kill them all. He was honestly the only enjoyable character. Even though he didn’t have much of a backstory, he was fun because he was kind of just a destructive force who liked chaos. I felt like it actually worked in his favor when he didn’t make much sense. That’s really all there is to say. If you ever decide to punish yourself and watch this crap, then fair warning. The characters aren’t the least bit sympathetic and you honestly start to wish Loki would just kill them all so you can be finally escape their blandness!

The designs were nice though. That’s really it.

Art and Animation: 

One of the high points of the show. The Art on this show is actually pretty, and really interesting to look at. It uses a different sort of color scheme that I don’t typically see in most show’s I’ve watched. I guess the best way to describe it would be the colors are more blunt. The art is good, and the character designs are nice to look at, which is what you want to see, especially on main characters.

The animation is pretty nice to. The fight scenes were pretty fun to watch. The movement isn’t really stiff in this show, except when they use CGI, which they do in some parts for some reason. The animation when compared to the other elements of the show isn’t bad at all. Then again though, comparing it to the plot of the show is a pretty low bar huh? Either way, it isn’t bad and is actually pretty good.

Music: 

Honestly? This is the best part of the show. The music is so good, it’s absolutely wasted on this show. I absolutely love the opening of this show. I’ve actually listening to it on repeat right now. It’s really good and the visuals combined with it, makes a really good opening! You honestly feel betrayed when the show starts. The ending is just as good, and the background music is also really good! Whoever was in charge of the music clearly put alot of effort into it, and I appreciate it immensely. It made the rest of it way more bearable.

Voices: 

The acting in this show is actually really good to! I know, surprising considering the rest of it but this show actually has a great cast! I liked Loki’s voice the most but the other ones were good too! They all fit the characters pretty well, and I enjoyed listening to it. Alot of the voices are ones I’ve heard the voices before though, so maybe that’s why. They have more experience I suppose.

Overall: 

Despite the fact that this anime has a few good elements like it’s art and music, a shitty thing is still a shitty thing no matter how nicely you decorate it. This show gets 1.5 out of 5 stars from me. Higher then most of my other lower ratings, but still bad. I don’t know who would even want to watch this, or why this is even getting a dub! Yes, you heard me right, a dub. So many cool other shows they could be doing, but no they decide on this. It’s confusing, it’s writing is all over the place, the characters are lazy and its one of the worst things I’ve watched in quite a long time and I am so glad it’s over.

Thank you for reading my review! If you like it feel free to leave feedback! Likes are always appreciated as well. If you have anything you want me to review, feel free to suggest it to me! If I’ve seen it I might review it! I could actually use some viewer help! I’m not actually sure which anime I should review next. A few ended this Winter Season that I could do but I’m not sure which one I want to do. I would actually appreciate a suggestion, if you have any!

Superman Vs Batman Review

Batman-Superman-movie-logo

Happy Monday everyone! Though it probably isn’t a very happy Monday for most of you, I hope maybe this will brighten up your day! Today we’ll be taking a bit of a break from Anime reviews for the newest superhero movie that’s all the rage now, Batman vs Superman! I’ve always been a Marvel person and don’t know much about DC things at all. Despite that though this movie definitely got my attention. I’ve seen it get alot of negative reviews, much like the last series I reviewed that is known as Active Raid. Going with my last theme though, is it as bad as it seems? Lets find out!

Plot: 

I think this movie isn’t meant for people who don’t know much about DC. There were a few moments mostly in the first half that confused me alot. The plot did alot of head hopping in the first part. To be fair though, I don’t typically mind skipping between different POV’s alot. Especially with writing, I feel it’s often necessary. With this movie, alot of the POV switching happened a bit suddenly without much warning. It made the first part much more jerky and confusing. If you focus, you should still be able to follow well enough, but that is a flaw this movie does have.

After that though, the pacing smooths out and slows down a little and the tone and pacing is perfect! I was able to follow along a little easier without trying so hard. Plot and pacing aside this movie is really cool! It was amazing at building suspense throughout the movie and when they showed the other character’s trailers? It was great! Overall I really enjoyed this movie plot and thought it was really fun! Everything you’d want out of a superhero movie! Other then it being a little jumbled and such, I don’t have any complaints about it.

Characters: 

The fun part of the movie and one of it’s best parts of course. All the characters were great in this movie! Superman was awesome, and even though I don’t know alot about him I think I actually want to go back and look at other superman things now! The poor guy in this movie couldn’t catch a break, but he was good in this movie!

Wonder Woman was the same way! I know a bit more about Wonder Woman then the other DC characters and I’m pretty satisfied by this Wonder Woman incarnation! I mean I could nitpick about how the actress isn’t an Amazon woman, or say she isn’t muscular or tall enough but that’s OK with me for the most part. Sure I wish they would cast her more accurately,  but this actress did well! She finally got into a movie, and she kicked butt!

The cameo’s for the other characters were the absolute best! I’m excited for the new Aquaman and The Flash especially. I admit I do have a slight bias because I love both those actors, but I think they will add something to the two characters for sure! I also really loved the new Lex Luther in this movie! He was delightfully off his rocker and a fun villain to watch!

The only character I definitely have very slight complaints about though is Batman. Not the actor or anything, but the way Batman was written for this movie. I know Batman is a more cold individual, but I’ve never heard of him branding anyone. I think it’s a bit overly callous even for Batman. It was still pretty interesting but I feel like because of how cold Batman was for most of the movie, it made him very unsympathetic. Other then that though, I loved the characters in this movie and I think they were written and designed very well!

CGI Filming and Character Design: 

The special effects in this movie are great, I’m going to start right there because it’s another one of the movies best points. The special effects are just amazing, and my personal favorite was Superman’s laser vision. They looked so cool and I loved them alot. The cool thing about this movie even though it had amazing CGI and was filmed well, it doesn’t carry the entire movie like say your typical Michael Bay film. The characters were also designed well, as I said before but Aquaman takes the cake in that area. He has a completely new look, and honestly? It’s better then the original.

Music:

The music in this movie is also really good! It’s epic and perfect for this type of movie. My favorite music was the one that appeared in all the Lex scenes. When the soundtrack is released my top priority is getting that one for sure. The other soundtracks were good as well. Again, this isn’t what carries the movie but it only adds to how great it is and gives it it’s own unique flair! I enjoyed it alot!

Acting/Voices: 

The acting in this movie was really well done! I especially like the way it was acted during the parts where characters were afraid, the nightmare sequences in particular. They weren’t a huge deal, but I really liked them. I think the acting for Lex Luther really took the cake though. He was believable as being a completely batshit crazy guy. He made himself absolutely horrifying and pretty much threw himself into it! I don’t really have any complaints about the acting either.

Overall: 

Overall this movie deserves a 4.5 out of 5 stars. If DC wants to catch up to Marvel, then they’re doing it right. I enjoyed this movie just as much as I do going to see Marvel films, and in some ways I enjoy them even more then Marvel films! DC is definitely catching up to them fast and because of that, I think we’re going to be seeing some great films in the next few years from both Marvel and now DC alike!

Thank you for reading my review! If you liked it feel free to leave feedback or leave a request for something you would like to see me review in the comments! If I’ve seen it, I might do it! I’m going to get back to reviewing the Winter Anime soon though, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for that!

Active Raid: Kidou Kyoushuushitsu Dai Hakkei Review

77977

So here’s something kind of uncommon for me to watch. This show is actually the first Mecha Anime I’ve ever decided to watch. Based on what I’ve seen so far alot of people actually don’t like this show! I think I have a more balanced opinion though and honestly? People have been a bit overly harsh on it. Here’s my take on it!

Story: 

The biggest flaw of this anime does lie in it’s story, but it isn’t as bad as alot of people would lead you to believe. It does move unnecessarily fast at times and can be more silly then desired, considering the plot is actually kind of serious in tone once you get into it. It is a crime show after all, and a show like that should have more serious moments then silly ones. Without context alot of it’s dialogue seems absolutely silly but it’s something you have to watch in full to understand. Mythos is the most confusing aspect of the show but to be fair, the show is getting a second season so it might explain itself in the next season and be less confusing.

It’s earlier episodes are the most irritating since there is some filler involved but once you get past that point, it can actually pretty cool! At times this show can be pretty anti climatic, overly ridiculous, and is a bit complex for it’s more fast paced nature, but if you can look past it, it’s actually really nice and worth taking a look at!

Characters: 

Easily the best part of the show. These characters are awesome and well designed as well. The one thing that makes this anime better is how well developed they are. A few of the episodes just focus on their individual development and insecurities. It’s extremely clever and worthy of praise. It’s even more cool to watch when the issues the police force responds to corresponds with the issues they are going through. The development for the characters is handled very well and I absolutely loved it! I wish more of the winter anime for this year developed their characters this well! I have no complaints other then the fact that my favorite Kyoukai wasn’t shown as much. My only request is that they show him more this next season!

Art and Animation: 

The animation can sometimes be a little stiff and awkward on this show but it isn’t terribly noticeable. Most of the animation has very nice flow especially during the battle scenes. The animation on this show is good but the art is even better. I really love the colors, especially on the eyes of the characters. It’s style is very sleek and flows very nicely with the tone of the show. I have no complaints about it really.

Music: 

I loved the opening of the show, and I found myself singing along whenever it came on. The ending was a little less catchy but enjoyable regardless! The background music and the openings and ending fit the show very well! They’re cheerful when they should be and I really enjoyed it! I don’t have any complaints about it.

Voices:

The voices in the show are all familiar to me, well most of them anyway! I loved alot of the voices, and the more emotional bits were handled extremely well. Again, this area was done very well too, and all the voice actors did a very good job, even for the minor characters! I wish dubs were handled that well to be honest.

Overall: 

Overall I’m going to give this anime 4 out of 5 stars. People are way to mean to this show! There really isn’t much wrong with it, and it was actually significantly better then most of the shows that aired this winter if I’m being honest with myself. I’m extremely excited for the next season. I think if the second part takes it a little slower, and does filler stuff just a tad less, they’ll be sure to get a higher rating next time!

Thank you for reading my review! Feel free to leave feedback, it’s always appreciated! If you want me to review something feel free to request it as well! It seems I’ve been doing these reviews daily lately, heh. There will probably be alot more reviews lately, since alot of shows are ending in quick succession as of late. I might also be going to the movies this weekend to see Batman vs Superman so be sure to keep an eye out for that as well!

Prince Of Stride Review

77842

Yet another winter anime has finished it’s 12 episode run! I watched it because of how reminiscent it was to Free to be honest. I will admit I did like that swimming anime and I think the fandom is still active to this day, even though the anime finished awhile ago. This Anime is actually alot different compared to Free in quite a few ways so if your going to watch it, try not to compare the two. Even though I was attracted to this because of its similarities, it should be judged in it’s own right. Without any further ado, lets get right into our review!

Plot: 

This plot flows very nicely but it lacks balance at times. This show is mostly very high energy so for this type of show, the emotions should be running a little higher to. It doesn’t need to be dramatic all the time, but the moments that are supposed to be more emotional fall very flat most of the time. When one of the new characters joins the Stride Club, it is done pretty well but when we see a glimpse of the main character’s past and insecurities, I felt like it was done in a much more awkward cold hearted way and he gets over it a little to fast for it to feel realistic.

This show has a good balance of awesome high strung moments but during the scenes with the characters bonding and such, I feel like it should have been more emotional and more character development should have been involved. The show is very selective in who it develops, probably because of the short length of the show. Honestly though? This show would have worked better as a 24 episode show.

Alot of different characters and teams are introduced in this show. I wanted to know alot about all the characters because I was honestly interested in getting to know all of them! Though this show has alot of awesome scenes when it comes to the racing the characters do, I feel like it really failed as a visual novel adaptation. It isn’t emotional enough to be one, and had I not done any research I would have sworn up and down it was just a sports anime. The ending was also super anti climatic in my opinion.

Despite that though, if you judge this anime for what it is, it’s still pretty good! It has some pretty funny moments, and the plot despite not focusing as much on the more emotional stuff and the bonding between characters it’s still pretty enjoyable to watch!

Characters: 

This show has some great characters, even it’s supporting cast is interesting. I loved getting to know the Honan Stride Club, and even all the other teams from different schools! They all have pretty nice designs and I like the colors and how each team has a different sort of scheme going for them. Again though, despite how cool the characters are alot of them aren’t really developed enough. With some they show you a bit of their past and such but mostly, your kept mostly in the dark about them. It’s pretty disappointing to me because they set them up very well!

I just wish the characters had more depth as all but other then that this show offers a nice cast! Maybe they’ll make a season 2 of this show or something, but the underdevelopment in some areas is a flaw this show definitely has.

Art And Animation: 

Ah another high point of the show! Though considering Madhouse was involved in it, I’m not at all surprised. The animation is amazing especially for all the running scenes. The art style is also really nice. The colors aren’t as in in your face, and even though I prefer more colorful styles of animation I love the one in Prince Of Stride! It truly is really nice to look at and I have no complaints about it whatsoever.

Music:

Yet another enjoyable aspect of this show. The opening of this show is AWESOME. I loved it and if I ever take up running that song will be on the playlist for whenever I do it. It’s high strung, in your face and prepares you for the show well! The ending is a nice song though but it doesn’t hold a candle to the opening, probably because it’s way more laid back.

The background music is just as good. It fits incredibly well for the mood and I absolutely loved it. I’d recommend the anime just for it’s music and art style to be honest, it’s that good. Again no complaints in that area either.

Voices: 

The voice actors in this show also do good work. Sometimes I wish they were more emotional in certain moments. Sometimes in this show the actors are more emotional in moments where I feel they shouldn’t be. Most of the time though the acting is done really well and I enjoyed it. I didn’t recognize alot of the voice actors but I hope I get to hear them in other things soon, they were really nice!

Overall: 

This Anime is a pretty good, I’m giving it a 3.6 out of 5 stars. It has a few annoying things about it most notably the fact that it was adapted off of a visual novel, and isn’t even like one at all. I never played the visual novel but this show by itself is an overall pretty nice show. If you like the sports type of Anime’s, then you will enjoy this since it is a very good quality show, but there is definitely better out there.

Thank you for reading my review! If you enjoyed it, feel free to leave feedback! If you want me to review something, feel free to request it! If I’ve seen it I might review it! A few more Winter season anime’s are coming to an end, so expect more reviews soon!
