The Nihon Review - Anime Reviews & Editorials

The Past and Future

Hello, friends! Today we plumb the past and the future for our reviews! First up is AC with a look at the revamp of one of Rurouni Kenshin‘s most famous arcs, Rurouni Kenshin: New Kyoto Arc. Sadly, it seems this would have been best left in the history books. The remake botches almost everything that made the original memorable, and even the shinier visual sap some of the story’s soul. Meanwhile, Shadowmage takes a look at the dystopian thriller Psycho-Pass. The larger story and ideas make the series worth watching, even if the cast as a whole is not the most compelling.

Also, be sure to take a look at our Spring 2013 Midseason Review post to get our thoughts on current series before they conclude!
