A remarkably dull sequel that progresses slowly with various non-sequitur arcs. When not in a monotonous fight scene, it's the same tired “jokes” of accidentally seeing a girl changing or naked, over and over again.
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.
Haruhi has its own fun thing going on. It doesn't "feel" like really any other anime, and that's part of what has made it a mainstay of anime history. That, and a very notorious arc. I really enjoyed this one.
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.
A Certain Scientific Railgun is a much better counterpart to Magical Index that feels like an intriguing cop show set in an X-Men-like universe. It’s still got a lot of anime pervery sins though.
About as tropey and shallow as you'd expect from a short promotional anime for a mobile platform dating sim that never even got finished or released. Main girl is cute though?
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.
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.
