This week for Anime Sunday I’m back with the first series from the Spring 2020 season. It’s my Tower of God Episode 01 Impressions!
Plot: The plot is okay, but frankly it lacks any sort of pull for me personally. Bam, our main character, follows his friend Rachel into the tower trying to meet up with her again. Considering that they only just seperated, or so it seems, the fact they don’t meet each other almost immediately seems contrived and doesn’t make any logical sense. Maybe future episodes will fix this seeming error, but I could care less. The plot to me, is tired and boring and just not engaging enough for me to spend the time needed to watch more episodes.
Characters: We really only get to see a few characters in this episode, and frankly they aren’t all that interesting. Bam seems to be just a blank shell for most of the episode and other than wanting to meet Rachel again doesn’t care for much of anything. Everyone else is just as boring as him.
Art: The art is pretty good, but not as good as my gold standard.
Music: It’s decent, not amazing but not terrible either.
Overall: A pretty lackluster series to me, others may enjoy this Korean Webtoon Adaptation, but I personally won’t continue to watch it.
For those who like: Action, Drama, Unnecessary Drama, Mysteries.
This week for Anime Sunday I’m covering what I’m looking forward to for the current season of Anime. It’s my Most Anticipated Spring 2020 Anime!
Appare-Ranman: This looks to be a pretty fun Wild West adventure, so I’m interested. Whether it’ll be any good will remain to be seen, but I have some hope that it’ll be great.
Tower of God: This is an adaptation of a very popular Korean Web Comic, which I have never read. I’m looking forward to watching at least the first episode to see if it’s any good.
Otome Game Tensei: This is an adaptation of a Light Novel that I’m fairly certain I’ve read before. Or I could be wrong, as there are several that take the concept and run with it and I haven’t read them all, shocking I know.
Hachinan tte: This is another adaptation of a Light Novel series, I am somewhat ambivalent about, but I’ll give it a shot nonetheless.
Gleipnir: This only caught my attention because of the title, but I’ll admit the synopsis looks interesting so I’ll give this a shot. Anything that has to do with the mythical chain that held the Fenris wolf catches my attention.
