A magical and soul-stirring piece with beauty musically, emotionally, and artistically.
Ghost in the Shell 2.0
An important, seminal cyberpunk experience that has aged a little since 1995, but still an interesting piece that cements the genre.
Evangelion: 3.0 + 1.01 Thrice Upon a Time
Finally a satisfying, well-balanced, cathartic finale to all Evangelion.
One-Punch Man (Season 2)
It felt a bit crammed with too many simultaneous ongoing arcs, but still a fun time with some interesting new characters.
A Certain Scientific Railgun T
With great and meaningful attention to the supporting cast and their screen time, I found myself enjoying just about all of this season. The best "A Certain" series has offered yet.
A bold and saturated experience of strong creative expression fueled with raw Saturday Morning chutzpah. Ridiculous and charming, it defies all expectations.
Evangelion: 3.33 You Can (Not) Redo
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 Certain Scientific Accelerator
The darkest “A Certain” entry yet that follows our antihero Accelerator. A more serious tone, some great fights, and a short, decent plot.
A Certain Magical Index III
Much better than previous Index installments, not nearly as much eye-rolling ecchi, but a lot of the same sins. Villains are all good guys by the next arc, (and there are a lot of arcs) and the overarching plot is needlessly complex, and solved via deus-ex machina anyway.
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.
