Anime Sunday: Drifters Episode 01 Impressions

drifters

This week for Anime Sunday I’m starting in on the latest season of Anime’s newcomers! It’s my Drifters Episode 01 Impressions!

Plot Synopsis: Shimazu Toyohisa, while involved at the Battle of Sekigahara, manages to mortally wound Ii Naomasa, but is critically wounded in the process. As he walks from the field wounded and bleeding, Toyohisa finds himself transported to a corridor of doors, where a bespectacled man at a desk waits for him…

Plot: The plot is bloody, violent, and everything I might have expected from the creator of Hellsing.  I won’t go too much into the plot as it’d be spoiling all the fun for you. That being said I’m very intrigued and will be watching this series intensely as it should prove to be lots of fun.

Characters: Toyohisa seems to be our lead character and while I admire his bravery I do hope he gets past being headstrong as that seems to be his normal state of mind.  The rest of the cast we got to meet thus far is just as interesting. I won’t spoil anything beyond saying that I’m looking forward to seeing the rest of the cast.

Art: Wonderfully done with intense linework and lots of fluid animation. I won’t say it’s at ufotable level quality work, but it’s really close.

Music: The music is great as well, and fits the series perfectly.

Overall: For Actions fans, Drifters is looking to become a must watch series.

For those who like: Action, Drama, Violence, Excellent Plot, Fantastic Cast of Characters, Amazing Artwork, Great Musical Score.

Not for those who don’t like: Any of the above.

Anime Sunday: Most Anticipated Fall 2016 Anime

3_gatsu_no_lion

This week for Anime Sunday I’m looking ahead at the upcoming season of Anime! It’s my Most Anticipated Fall 2016 Anime!

3-gatsu no Lion: I love reading the Manga for this series and I’m really looking forward to watching the Anime, plus Bump of Chicken is going to do one of the theme songs, which should be awesome. The story follows a boy who is a professional Shogi player who has trouble interacting with people, except for a family of three sisters who take him into their home and lives one day.

Drifters: I’ve never read the Manga that this Anime is an adaptation of, but I have read the author’s Hellsing series. If Hellsing is anything to go by, this should be a really awesome Anime. I have no clue about the plot, but that’s intentional as I really want to watch it without reading about it before hand.

Luger Code 1951: Another adaptation of a Manga series I’ve never read, I read the Fantasy genre tag online and was curious as it seems to be about Cryptanalysis or code breaking. So I’m curious to see what this is all about. My only concern is that it’s being animated by Studio Deen, the worst Anime studio ever.

Occultic;Nine: This seems to be adapted from a Light Novel series, so I’m curious as to what this is all about. Maybe it’ll be really awesome, but like the rest of the series I’ve already mentioned except 3-gatsu I have no clue what this series is all about.

Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans 2: The second season of Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans, I stopped watching after the first cour of the first season.  I heard that the series would be getting a second season and I wanted to save something to watch for when I go house sit for my folks during the College Football Season. This should prove to be an awesome second season to what I think is the best Gundam series since Zeta, sorry Wing fans.

That’s it for this week’s Anime Sunday! Next week I’ll be covering the winners of the Summer season!
