The Nihon Review - Anime Reviews & Editorials

Eight Plus Two Equals Ten (Or, One Awesome and One Horrible Anime for Your Viewing Pleasure)

Don’t let the long title of this post put you off — today we have a wonderful pair of anime reviews that highlights the best and worst of anime that ended over the first few months of 2016.

To give you the good stuff first, check out Kavik Ryx‘s thoughts on a surprise hit from Winter 2016: Hai to Gensou no Grimgar. The setting may be familiar to most of us that watch anime, with its main characters suddenly transported into a mysterious land where the struggle to survive, but it’s definitely got more to it than you would guess by its cover.

In addition, we also review a pretty horrible anime by all standards in Heavy Object. It’s so lackluster that it makes last year’s Aldnoah.Zero look like a masterpiece.

    I discover I go to the BBC more for world information than any
    outlet in the US – sort of humorous and form of unhappy – however
    they do a wonderful job of reporting well rounded information – that factor
    referred to as journalism that has gone the best way of the
    dinosaur on all of our main networks.
