The Nihon Review - Anime Reviews & Editorials

The Evolution of Character Archetypes

That’s the sort of analysis that one can perform on both of the anime reviewed anyhow.  For example, Sorrow-kun points out how one can look at Princess Arete to see the frustrating situation the titular protagonist must overcome and where she stands amongst some other anime “princesses.”

As for the recently-finished Sora no Woto, Akira notes that the show is a decent step up from the deluge of moe shows, showing that one can put such characters in grim situations and have it be engaging.  This show comes close to doing that, and while it falls short of its potential, it’s still worth watching nonetheless.
