If you, like me, finished the main series thinking "Well, I'm not really sure what happened, but there's another movie to wrap up those loose ends" then this won't be too satisfying. While some questions are answered, it creates more than those it answers. It does have one of the greatest fight scenes I've seen in animation.
Evangelion is what made Mecha a great genre, filled with existential psychological enigmas and religious imagery. It is easily one of the most influential anime ever to have been created.
Every anime sin is committed here in a show that feels like it was Frankensteined together out of everything kids in the early 2000s said they liked about anime.
Definitely not a good show to have be your introduction to the Fate universe, even though it does do decent world-building. The music isn’t bad though, and if you like Fate and have seen the other adaptations, it won’t be a total waste of time.
With gorgeous enhanced visuals and artistic detail, Tamako Love Story dives a bit deeper into the human relationships presented in the series with a slightly more serious tone.
There’s an optimism and a powerful love in Tamako Market that shows things not entirely as they are, but how we want them to be. For such a year as this, it’s important to remember that you, yourself, are a large part of what “The World” is to someone, if not many. As such, you are and can be such a powerful force for good, brightening and coloring your own and their life.
Magia Record takes the world you know from Madoka and shows us how it would be like in a bigger city full of networking Magical Girls. There is a bit of a firehose effect with the number of characters and amount of story here, though.
What began as a passive time-sink grew into a beloved investment. Magia Record's characters, writing, and story have a charm to them unique in the realm of mobile games. Which makes the abrupt end of it that much more painful.
This is right smack dab in the good section of good movies that are made well. An excellently executed drama exploring the joys of really getting to know someone.
