The Nihon Review - Anime Reviews & Editorials

Time We Can’t Have Back

Sometimes the return on an anime is just not worth the investment. Sequels are often dangerous territory, as Reckoner observes in his review of Eureka 7 AO, a series that leaves a bad taste in his mouth. Not only does it fail to build upon its predecessor, it actually devalues the original. MK wrote of Eureka 7 that he “would never trade the time spent watching this anime”. I doubt Reckoner can say the same of the sequel.

Conversely, Shinmaru went in with low expectations when he watched Kono Naka ni Hitori, Imouto ga Iru!, a raunchy harem with a mystery that’s not so intriguing.  He gives it credit for a few laughs and understanding it’s own scope, but it still ultimately leaves much to be desired.
