SAO goes back to its roots and slows the pace down for a more comfortable, immersive experience. Does still suffer from some SAO sins.
With a more adult tone than most anime, this felt like Cowboy Bebop meets Matchstick Men in a bright, bold, modern style. Definitely worth checking out.
A bold and saturated experience of strong creative expression fueled with raw Saturday Morning chutzpah. Ridiculous and charming, it defies all expectations.
Overall story is painfully, obviously the story for a mobile game. Fate's mental gymnastics for magic rules are rampant, but there's some great fight choreography, as well as inspirational dialogue and speeches.
All new story from the series at this point, though a lot of the character development is the same, and primarily focuses on Shinji.
A fun (though verbose) Fate/Zero spinoff that channels the vibes of Sherlock Holmes, Hogwarts, and the Fate Universe, with a myriad of cameos from other Fate entries.
The darkest “A Certain” entry yet that follows our antihero Accelerator. A more serious tone, some great fights, and a short, decent plot.
A fun, tropey, sexy, harem of monster girls that’s got great moments. It does get a little sweaty at the end, but still a great time.
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.
