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.
In the "Military vehicles as Anime Girls" competition, fighter jets come dead last behind battleships and tanks. This felt like an adaptation of a very mediocre visual novel that relied wholly on tropes.
This reverse harem isekai is a hilarious, wholesome, and delightful time in a Disney Princess-flavored setting with an endearing, surprisingly strong, and distinct protagonist.
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.
A beautifully animated coming of age vignette piece with a professional polish, but not very memorable at the end of the day.
This is the best anime movie from a TV series that I've seen. KyoAni's love for their craft is strongly felt here in a beautiful and emotional piece. All the good of Haruhi improved while trimming all eye-roll moments.
A family-friendly Disney/Ghibli vibe that's fun enough, though definitely has "for kids" goofiness in it, but goes a bit deeper emotionally than typical non-Pixar family movies.
An interesting, mysterious story that while gorgeously animated, feels more like a stand-out episode of a Sci-Fi TV series than a standalone movie.
