A quality Isekai with a fun and positive energy. One of the better ones.
Somali and the Forest Spirit
A beautiful, heart wrenching and heartwarming adventure in a gorgeous fantasy world. With rich world building, heavy topic exploration, and my kryptonite: the "Learn to be Human" trope. Get tissues.
Spice and Wolf
It's "Stonks: The Anime!" No, but really. A mature, slow burn romance in a fantasy setting with several entertaining economic thrillers along the way. A change of pace from modern anime, but it does lack drive.
Sword Art Online: Alicization
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.
Do You Love Your Mom and Her Two-Hit Multi-Target Attacks?
An Isekai with an identity crisis. It sometimes feels like a complete tongue-in-cheek excuse for an ecchi premise, but then tries to be legitimately heartfelt and sincere at others. Not a chore, though.
Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 3 – Stardust Crusaders
More of the melodramatic, campy, hilarious nonsense that takes itself way too seriously that you loved from parts 1 & 2, but at a more relaxed, episodic pace.
Mirai is a magical family-focused movie that feels like a modern, Japanese "Coco" but with much less stress and more appreciation for simple things.
Goblin Slayer: Goblin’s Crown
A Classic D&D-style Adventure with the Goblin Slayer crew. Doesn't particularly add much to the series but brings in a new character and better animation.
