The Nihon Review - Anime Reviews & Editorials

Something Different

If you’ve been looking for some recent anime that are different from what you’re used to, here’s two fantastic anime from the last few months that are definitely worth a look.

First, we present a review of the excellent rakugo-themed anime Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinju. Kaikyaku found the character-driven show to be a delight with impressive visuals to backup its complex character development.

Second is a look at the newest entry in the Gundam franchise: Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron Blooded Orphans. While the show has a few holes that it wasn’t able to fill up completely, Kavik Ryx argues that it’s a welcome update to a franchise that was starting to feel a bit dated.

    Hi. Thank you for reviewing the ever execellent (but underrated) Rakugo Shinju. Well, I do agree with what you said with the climax but I honestly think the real event was purposely untold granted what we saw in episode 1. You know, there’s blood and Konatsu mentioned Kiku killed her dad. Nonetheless, it was a rarity.

    And oh, I love your Iron Blooded Orphans review. As expected from this website.

    Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you
    know a few of the pictures aren’t loading
    correctly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue.
    I’ve tried it in two different internet browsers and both show the
    same results.

    I mean, what you say is valuable and everything. However imagine if you added some great pictures or
    video clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and clips, this website could
    certainly be one of the best in its niche. Great blog!

    Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to
    my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the
    shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic
    but I had to tell someone!
