Fate/Stay Night: Heaven’s Feel III. Spring Song

Studio ufotable flexes on the entire anime industry again with some of the most gorgeous art and animation, coupled with Yuki Kajiura's perfect soundtrack. Unfortunately, the "rules of magic" gymnastics and overly complicated philosophy was distracting and made it more difficult to immerse as the previous movies.

God of High School

God of Highschool unfortunately really felt like an amateur webcomic, which isn't surprising considering WebToon was the source material. Well animated fights, but Tournament Arc alone isn't enough to carry this disjointed, confusing story.

A Certain Magical Index III

Much better than previous Index installments, not nearly as much eye-rolling ecchi, but a lot of the same sins. Villains are all good guys by the next arc, (and there are a lot of arcs) and the overarching plot is needlessly complex, and solved via deus-ex machina anyway.

Kick-Heart

A short one-off art piece from Masaaki Yuasa that focuses on distinct animation to tell the story, rather than dialogue. Short enough that it's definitely worth checking out, even if the style is vastly different from typical anime fare.

Guilty Crown

Despite having all the ingredients to be the next anime classic, it ended up feeling like Magical Index meets the bad of Evangelion with unrealistic characters that betray their established depth and personalities.
