The Nihon Review - Anime Reviews & Editorials

A Double Dose of Fantasy

Although the 2016 Olympics have been all over the news lately, that hasn’t stopped us from watching some more anime. To get away from all the sports talk, we’ve taken a look at two recent anime filled with fantasy and entertainment.

First, if splashy action scenes and style over substance in a show is what you’re looking for right now, check out Kabaneri of the Iron FortressAC found it highly suspect in terms of its content, but it won’t let you down aesthetically.

Second, I gush over how much I loved Snow White with the Red Hair and its lovely protagonist. If you’re a fan of shoujo anime, Snow White should definitely be on your watch list if you haven’t seen it.

    Poor use of the term “train wreck” to describe something whose biggest crimes was not being original.

    It’s just average. Literally or figuratively, calling it “below average” seems like overkill to me.

    Whatever. It’s not the most hyperbolic review of this I’ve seen, but I kind of expected a more reasonable take.

    I’d going into detail about why I don’t agree, but I know almost nobody reads these comments either way.
