Today’s two new reviews cover two anime quite different from one another. First, we have Houkago no Pleiades, a somewhat nonsensical sci-fi anime by industry veteran Gainax. Although the studio has created hits beloved by anime fans over the years, it hasn’t quite seemed to recover its past glory, and this series doesn’t do much to inspire confidence in the studio’s. If you’re interested in moe anime though, this might be a show you’re interested in watching.
Our second review is Hoozuki no Reitetsu, the second anime by anime newcomer Wit Studio known for the first Attack on Titan anime. Hoozuki no Reitetsu is a somewhat dark (?) comedy that touches all the right spots, although its heavy basis in Japanese culture and language makes it a bit indecipherable for your average non-Japanese anime fan. It’s the polar opposite of our other review; not only is its main setting located in the Japanese underworld, but it’s also a lot more entertaining to watch.
