Now that the Rebuild of Evangelions’s own different story is rolling, the pacing is much more natural and you’ll be on the edge of your seat - or hiding behind it, I literally pulled a muscle in my neck recoiling in horror at the excellently animated action.
NGNL Zero is a strong prequel movie with a much heavier and more serious tone than the series. I was caught off guard and cried multiple times throughout. It's worth watching the series for this movie alone.
No Game No Life is a gorgeous game-centered Isekai with lush worldbuilding and an interesting story. It also brings the worst of ecchi objectification/sexualization and the Smartest Man In The Room genre.
A beautifully animated coming of age vignette piece with a professional polish, but not very memorable at the end of the day.
An ensemble Reverse Isekai piece with a strong (though slightly less brutal) Fate/Zero feel to it. This takes a hard meta route and is ample with rich philosophical dialogue and design choices.
A completely revamped and beautiful beginning to a different Evangelion story. It was so nice to see crisp HD updates and detail, with more focused storytelling with pieces of the fat trimmed out, but this first movie is mostly the same story you know.
There are a good number of words/phrases in Japanese that don’t necessarily translate over well into English. So, here’s a bunch that are very common that will help you get a grasp on what’s REALLY being said.
Demon Slayer is an intense shonen that proves that the genre can stay relevant. With stellar animation, music, and pacing, it lives up to its hype. Most episodes will give you full-body goosebumps, make you cry, or both.
A cozy food anime that centers on the unique joys and experience that only a small establishment can bring. If you've ever worked in or been a regular customer of a small restaurant, you'll enjoy this.
