A rushed-pace fan-service centered show that’s really missing an ingredient.
Charlotte feels a lot like Angel Beats after the caffeine rush wears off. The lows aren't as low, but the highs aren't as high. Overall a more palatable experience with emotional moments, but still suffers from similar shortcomings.
A Whisker Away
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.
Bonjour Sweet Love Patisserie
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?
Tamako Love Story
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.
Kaguya-sama: Love is War
Kaguya-sama is a smart and hilarious battle-of-wits comedy with surprisingly heartwarming moments that you won't want to miss.
MY Love STORY!! (Ore Monogatari!!)
A simple, pure, and joy filled romcom that will leave a stupid grin plastered on your face.
K-On! The Movie
With some extra sentimental feels and more polished animation, this is a great finisher that fits right in with usual K-On shenanigans.
KyoAni breathes their signature love into this piece, making it another great show for de-stressing and having a stakes-free good time.
