Combine the absurdity of Scott Pilgrim with Anime, crank up the flashy skin-servicey outfits, add a whole lot of great action.
Combine the coming-of-age emotion and musical quality of a Ghibli movie with increased gorgeous visuals and a WWI drama. Add a scoop of cathartic emotion, serve with blankets, tissues, and heartwarming hope.
Take Hogwarts, throw it into HalloweenTown, and add sentient weapons and general anime Shonen vibes. The result is a surprisingly enjoyable ride that tackles some heavy issues.
