The Nihon Review - Anime Reviews & Editorials

Pushing boundaries… almost

Shadowmage reviews Dance in the Vampire Bund, one of Shinbo‘s (numerous) recent anime, but decides that this isn’t his best work.  Like most Shinbo works, it tries to push boundaries, but other than a couple of (infamous) moments, it doesn’t do much to be all that memorable.  Kavik Ryx has looked at Omamori Himari, a series that doesn’t even try to push boundaries, and the result is as insipid as one could have expected.  According to our intrepid reviewer (whose sanity was tested on a few occasions while watching this series… but he’s a mecha fan, so it’s debatable whether he had any sanity to begin with :p) this series jams a whole heap of tropes together, but doesn’t even try to make them gel.
