Anime Sunday: Winners of Winter 2016

grimgal

This week for Anime Sunday I’m covering the top anime of this season. It’s the Winners of Winter 2016!

Grimgal: Easily one of the most beautiful and well done Anime I’ve ever watched, it’s a pity that it’s only got a single cour of episodes. I really enjoyed this series, because it takes the transported to another world genre and makes it realistic. Normal people aren’t going to become badasses immediately and they’re going to have their own share of issues and troubles. Grimgal did an amazing job with the pacing as well, taking it slow and it was incredibly well done because of that. Add on to that fact that the musical score was excellent and that most of the episodes even had insert songs was quite impressive. The artwork was superb and I can’t think of a series not done by ufotable that has such an amazingly well done animation.

Gate: The second cours took things to new levels and really emphasized the political aspect of Gate quite a bit. I enjoyed it immensely. I’ve even gotten my elderly aunt hooked onto the show, though she’s currently watched up towards the end of the first season.

There are other shows others probably enjoyed as much as I enjoyed the above two, friends rave about Dagashi-kashi, but I wasn’t ever really into comedy shows. Slapstick just isn’t my thing.

One update to last week’s article, apparently Reikenzan is getting a second season. Why it’s getting a second season I have no clue.

That’s it for this week’s Anime Sunday!

  1. May I ask you about your thoughts on Erased? I remember you writing in a positive manner about the first episode, but there were some people out there saying they were disappointed with the way the plot developed later on, so I wonder if you’re of the same opinion.

    • I actually didn’t watch the series after the first episode because I wanted to binge watch it, which I have yet to do. I’ll probably get around to it in the near future, maybe in a couple months as I just got asked by a huge book publisher to do book reviews for them and I’m going to be busy for a while. I am looking forward to getting around to the series. So I’ll either watch it or I might read the original Manga instead. Right now with so much things going on, I’m a bit pressed for time so I haven’t come to a decision on which I want to do first yet.
