This week for Anime Sunday I’m back with a look at the next season. It’s my Most Anticipated Fall 2019 Anime!
Assassin’s Pride: This is an adaptation of a Light Novel series that I have heard about in the community, but have not yet read myself. I’ll give it a whirl, but this could very well be a bust in terms of content. We’ll see, it might also be too much of a try-hard at a dark fantasy story, in which case I’ll not be interested at all if that happens.
Cautious Hero: This looks to be much more of a comedy series than anything else given it’s title, but given it’s billed as a an Adventure and Action series with no Comedy tag in sight I’m hoping it’ll be more like TenSura than KonoSuba. One is light hearted with it’s serious moments, while the other is just a satire of the Isekai genre.
Fate/Grand Order Babylonia: This is an adaptation of the seventh and penultimate Singularity of the first act of the mobile game. I loved playing through this Singularity myself and it’s incredible story line is going to be an absolute joy to watch. I’ve heard it’ll be a 2-cour series, so I’m looking forward to watching the entirety of this series. I just hope 2-cour will be enough to do the story justice, but I’m hoping it will. The only downside is that it won’t be animated by ufotable, but even still I’m looking forward to watching this.
High School Prodigies: This is another adaptation of a really long named Light Novel series, so we’ll see if it’s any good. Like with the first two it might be a bust, but I’m going to give it a shot. It might be an Isekai series, but considering that Arifureta is one of my most loved stories of all time and it is an Isekai I figure I’ll give it a shot.
Sword Art Online Alicization 2nd Cour: I’m not a particular fan of the novel series anymore, it was okay until I read much better series, but some people love the series still. Me I don’t particularly enjoy it all that much anymore.
Hey all I’m back with a look at one of this latest season’s new series. It’s my Dies Irae Episode 00 Impressions!
Plot Synopsis: At the start of the second great war, an important leader in the German security bureau takes on a mission to fight supernatural mutants himself…
Plot: The plot of this first episode really doesn’t make much sense, but I’m going to bet it’s a really important set up for the series. I do want to note that this is an adaptation of a visual novel and that it has an English release, for those who get curious about the series. I myself might look into the source material if I can get a solid grasp on my workload again.
Characters: Reinhard Heydrich seems to be our main character, at least in this first episode, because there was some odd kid that just screams “Main Character” that shows up in the first minute that I don’t really think we see again in this episode. The rest of the cast was also fairly interesting, although I’m quite creeped out by Karl Kraft.
Art: The art is okay, but not even close to ufotable quality animation.
Music: The music was okay, but not super memorable either.
Overall: A pretty odd start to an adaptation of what is looking to be an interesting Visual Novel. Hopefully it does the source material justice.
For those who like: Historical Fiction, Supernatural, Military Fiction, Urban Fantasy, Action, Drama, Interesting Cast of Characters.
