A Dark Anime Featuring An Unbreakable Sibling Bond

Spoiler-Free Anime Review:

Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba Season 1

Rating: 10 out of 10 stars

Intro

Demon Slayer is an anime I watched because I heard people say it is better than My Hero Academia. I actually like it less than My Hero Academia, but that’s only because I prefer more light-hearted anime in general. Demon Slayer is, in fact, really fascinating and enjoyable to watch.

I watched the first half of the season with my dad and siblings and ended up watching the rest alone at college.

Warning: Even though this review does not have a significant spoilers, it does describe some plot details from Episode 1.

Background

Demon Slayer Season 1 was released in 2019, and is based on a manga series of the same name. It was written by Koyoharu Goutuge. It can currently be watched on Netflix, Hulu, Crunchyroll, or Funimation.

Summary

After Tanjiro’s family is slaughtered and his sister is turned into a demon, he studies to become a demon slayer to avenge his family and cure his sister.

Pros

  • Complex characters
  • Engaging combat
  • Demons are unique and have various skills
  • Great intro and outro
  • Catchy music
  • Taisho secrets
  • Attractive animation

Cons

  • No specific cons

Observations

  • It is a bit gory

Review

Characters

Tanjiro Kamado is the main character. He is a kind young man who sells charcoal to support his family until their untimely demise. His sense of smell is impeccable, significantly affecting the storyline believe it or not. He can pick up the smell of blood from far away or tell that a broken object was knocked over by a cat. He also can understand birds. He is extremely hardworking and loyal.

We barely get to know Nezuko Kamado before she is turned into a demon. She struggles with a violent side at times, but her connection to Tanjiro is heartwarming.

Zenitsu is generally cowardly and kind of pervy. Unlike in some anime, he is scolded for his behavior frequently and luckily doesn’t do anything as invasive as, for example, Mineta from My Hero Academia. There is more to him than meets the eye, however.

Inosuke is strong, socially inept, insensitive, and stubborn. Yet he is also quick to forget a grudge or even why he was angry in the first place. He is annoyed by Zenitsu’s weakness and Tanjiro’s kindness.

Combat

The combat in Demon Slayer is multi-layered and complex. Breathing technique is a huge component in an individual’s capacity to fight. Demon slayers master various forms to learn to attack, often related to the elements. Those who cannot kill demons by beheading them resort to other methods such as poisons. There is also something called the thread that Tanjiro can see, which shows him when there is an opening.

Demons

Each demon has a different specialty and many have different blood demon arts. The one depicted above, for example, is nicknamed the Arrow Demon and can redirect movements and launch opponents. Another interesting one is the Drum demon, which can perform different attacks by beating various drums embedded in its body.

The demons almost all have tragic backstories because they were once human before the traumatic event of being turned into demons.

Intro

The Demon Slayer Season 1 intro not only is a great introduction into future events in the first season, it also has great catchy music. It is well-made and intriguing.

Outro

The artistic design of the outro is beautiful, from the vibrant flowers at the beginning to the rendering of Nezuko shown above.

Taisho secrets

The Taisho secret at the end of each episode provides more insight into characters and is a fun way to tease about the next episode.

Animation

The animation of Demon Slayer is beautiful and terrifying. I especially liked the eyes of the characters and the design of the demons.

Conclusion

I would say if you don’t mind shows being a little bloody and violent, and you like anime, then you will probably like this show. Definitely recommend for ages 13 and up.

MHA Season 4 is the Best Season Yet

Spoiler-Free Anime Review:

My Hero Academia Season 4

Rating: 9 out of 10 stars

Intro

This is my favorite out of the seasons of My Hero Academia. So far none of the seasons come close to it, including what I have watched so far of Season 5.

Warning: This review does not contain significant spoilers for Season 4, but it does contain spoilers for earlier seasons.

Background

My Hero Academia Season 4 was released in 2019. It was produced by the studio Bones and directed by Kenji Nagasaki. The plot is based on the graphic novels by  Kōhei Horikoshi.

You can watch My Hero Academia on Crunchyroll, Funimation, and Hulu.

Summary

U.A. students face off against villains new and old. Later in the season, the members of U.A participate in a school festival. In the meantime, Bakugo and Todoroki attend special courses to catch up with the rest of Class 1-A.

Pros

  • Creative quirks
  • New and unique characters
  • Dangerous and effective villains
  • Well-chosen way to introduce the season
  • The Big 3 show what they are made of
  • Backstory for Kirishima and Amajiki
  • Actual consequences for choices
  • Concept of Quirk Singularity Doomsday
  • Darkest season balanced with comic relief
  • Attractive intros and outro
  • Catchy music
  • Original art style

Cons

  • Tickling machine kind of disturbing
  • The relationship between Gentle Criminal and La Brava is uncomfortable
  • Weird angles on characters focusing on breasts, legs, and skirts at different times

Observations

  • Natsu look-alike appears near end of season

Review

Introduction

The idea of starting the season off with a feature story on the members of Class 1-A was an interesting way to recap everyone’s quirks and personalities without being boring and forced.

Creative Quirks

Creative quirks such as whole-body lens fill this anime. This quirk allows camera lenses to grow from different parts of Taneo’s body. He can print the pictures from his chest when desired, or keep them in memory. For a journalist, this is the perfect quirk, being able to take pictures anywhere anytime, looking inconspicuous until finally getting a shot.

Characters

Getting Kirishima’s backstory is a great bonus for this season. Seeing how he changed over time to become the person he is now was amazing.

Amajiki is a shy character who continually compares Kirishima and Togata to the sun. This season really gives him the chance to shine, however, delving into his past and showing that he is formidable despite his reticent nature.

Fat Gum’s fat absorption quirk allows things to stick to his body and be absorbed. His quirk is more complex than it initially seems, however. He is a Pro Hero who is honorable and likeable.

Eri is a 6-year-old girl whose quirk and backstory are a well-kept secret from most of the characters until later in the season. She is compassionate and self-sacrificing, and surprisingly mature for her age yet still childish in many ways.

Nighteye holds to many of the same ideals as All Might. He values laughter and smiling, and wants to make the world a better place. He truly believes there is no future to society without “humor and energy.”

I appreciate the character design of Overhaul with his unique mask. I thought about getting one designed to look like Overhaul’s during the worst part of the pandemic when everyone was wearing masks, but mask regulations have since been relaxed in my area for those who are vaccinated.

I think of Overhaul as the most evil and cruel villain introduced in My Hero Academia so far. He’s not only physically dangerous, he is also causes psychological damage to others.

Relationships

The relationship between La Brava and Gentle Criminal gives off strong romance vibes and it’s not the most comfortable relationship. La Brava is 21 and Gentle is 32, which is a large age gap–but that’s not a big deal. The problem is the character design makes it seem like Gentle is an old man, and La Brava looks like a little girl. That makes it seem like Gentle is some sort of pedophile and that he is grooming La Brava. And since they don’t mention ages during the anime itself, viewers aren’t aware that La Brava is not a minor. Seems like a poor design choice here.

Consequences

Trust me, there are negative consequences for failure, and even for hard-won success, in this season.

Concept

The Quirk Singularity Doomsday theory has to do with each generation having stronger quirks. There is the idea that one day the older generation will not be able to stop the newest generation from doing whatever they want.

Balance

This season gets surprisingly dark for My Hero Academia, and the comic relief of the school festival is well-timed and much-needed. The last couple of episodes don’t seem to belong and probably should’ve been in the next season, but that’s not a big deal.

Music

The first intro of the season is Polaris by Blue Encounter. What I like about this intro includes the camera angles seeming natural and the movement of the piece as a whole. If you look at the part with the hands at the very beginning, you’ll notice it shows his hand when he was younger, his hand when he joined UA, and his hand with the scars.

The first outro features the song Kōkai no Uta by Sayuri. This is one of my favorite outros because it portrays backstory for an important character in Season 4 without spoiling anything significant like some outros do. The pictures of Eri are so cute and really builds sympathy for her.

The second intro features the song Starmarker by Kana-Boon. Unlike the first half of the season, the second half is lighthearted, and the intro reflects that. Interesting choices are made regarding color, and the song is upbeat.

The second intro features the song Shout Baby by Ryokuōshoku Shakai. This scrapbook-style intro shows glimpses into the character’s pasts, including those of side characters.

There is a song during the school festival that is amazing too, but going into details on that would constitute a spoiler.

Style

The animation was done by Studio Bones, which also did the style of Fullmetal Alchemist, another one of my favorite anime.

The style is different from Fullmetal Alchemist because it uses bold, bright colors and deep shadows for contrast. The pupils of characters are much smaller than in most anime.

Problematic Aspects

Sir Nighteye’s tickling machine is uncomfortably similar to torture and harassment. As a boss, it’s entirely inappropriate for him to tickle his sidekick without permission as a punishment. Bubble Girl literally begs him to stop and he refuses. There are better ways to show that Sir Nighteye values humor without making him seem like a creep.

Occasionally with this season the camera would rest on breasts, legs, and skirts without any apparent reason. It just seemed unnecessary and an odd choice.

Observations

Looks kind of like Natsu from the anime Fairy Tail, right? Whether that was intentional or not, the pink hair and scarf make this side character a lookalike to one of Fairy Tail’s strongest wizards.

Conclusion

If you liked the first few seasons of My Hero Academia, you will like this one too. If you didn’t like the first few seasons, you may like this season anyway because its darkest moments are horrifying and its lightest moments are hilarious, and there are plenty of heartfelt moments that fall in between those two extremes.

RWBY Volume 3 Is A Major Turning Point in the Series

Spoiler-Free Anime Review:

RWBY Volume 3

Rating: 9 out of 10 stars

Intro

I enjoyed Volume 1 and 2, but I have to say that Volume 3 exceeded my expectations. There were so many surprises, and a major turning point in the series. It’s my favorite volume so far. I watched it twice, once with my siblings and once with my close friend.

Warning! Although there are no spoilers for Volume 3 in this review, there are minor spoilers for earlier volumes.

Background

RWBY is an American anime. Some people say anime has to come from Japan to be legit–I disagree. I share the opinion of many others that say anime is a style and not limited to the products of any one country.

Volume 3 was released in 2015. Before production began on Volume 3, Monty Oum had a severe allergic reaction, fell into a coma, and died on February 1, 2015. He was only 33. Despite this tragedy, new members of the team were hired and it was decided RWBY would continue.

Summary

The Vytal Festival Tournament is the ultimate battle of skill, pitting the world’s most powerful Huntsmen and Huntresses in training against one another… and it’s finally here! Ruby, Weiss, Blake, and Yang are back for a season of over-the-top action, and they’re not alone. New fighters from around Remnant are ready to bring glory to their Kingdom, but there are those among them with a far more sinister goal in mind.”

Rooster Teeth quoted on Fandom

Basically, RWBY is about four young women who seek to become huntresses and defend the world of Remnant from shadowy creatures called Grimm.

Pros

  • Memorable heroes
  • Effective villains
  • Unique weapons and apparel
  • Interesting character naming rules
  • Phenomenal fight scenes
  • Interesting setting
  • Original music
  • Attractive intro
  • Balance of comedic and dark moments
  • Groundbreaking American Anime

Cons

  • Animation better but still developing

Review

Characters

For my Volume 1 review I focused on Team RWBY, and for the Volume 2 review I focused on Team JNPR. For this review, I will focus on various favorite characters from Volume 3.

Ozpin is the principal of Beacon Academy, and has a lot of say when it comes to who attends his school and who will be teamed up with who. He makes what seem like strange decisions, such as choosing Ruby for the leader of Team RWBY even though she is the youngest and most immature in her group, and Jaune for the leader of Team JNPR even though he is the least experienced fighter. He has great insight however, recognizing that Ruby and Jaune exhibited leadership skills worthy of their positions. Ozpin has a mysterious past and says that “I’ve made more mistakes than any man, woman, and child on this planet.” Ozpin alludes to the Wizard of Oz.

Sun Wukong is a Faunus with monkey features, visiting Beacon Academy from the Kingdom of Vacuo. Sun became close friends with Blake during the events of Volume 1. He has a great sense of humor and is highly skilled at combat. He is the leader of Team SSSN. Sun is fun-loving, confident, and persistent.

According to Fandom, Sun alludes to Sun Wukong from the Chinese novel Journey to the West. Sun Wukong from the novel was also quite perceptive, had a similar power to Sun’s semblance, and is a monkey.

Neptune Vasilias is a skilled young man who is an incurable flirt. He is constantly trying to impress the girls, which makes him a really funny character. He is a close friend to Sun Wukong.

Neptune alludes to the Neptune found in Roman mythology. This is ironic, as you will see if you watch the volume.

Penny Polendina is an android with a soul, a loveable character whose catchphrase is “Salutations!” Upon meeting Ruby, she is intrigued by being called a friend and asks if it is true. Unsure how to react, Ruby reluctantly says yes at first, but then they do end up being close friends. Penny is curious, kind, loyal, and talented.

Penny is an allusion to Pinocchio, which makes sense since she was created. Even though she was made to be a weapon, she also just wants to do things like a real girl.

Coco Adel is the leader of Team CFVY. She is fashionable, confident, and generally likeable. She is never fazed by the Grimm, which suggests a lot of experience. The name Coco is an allusion to color because of Cocoa, which is brown.

I have to say Coco is one of the coolest characters. Seeing her in action is amazing. According to Fandom, her character design and name may be an allusion to 20th century fashion designer Coco Chanel.

Weapons and Apparel

According to Monty Oum’s Facebook, Sun Wukong’s weapon is a pair of nunchuks called Ruyi Bang and Jingu Bang. They can switch between staff form, gun form, and nunchuk form.

According to Fandom, their name comes from the novel Journey to the West, where the character Sun Wukong’s staff is called Ruyi Jingu Bang.

According to Fandom, Penny’s weapon is called Floating Array. It consists of a grouping of sword-guns that come from inside her body and are capable of shooting a laser.

They have strings attached to them, which is likely an allusion to the puppet strings of Pinocchio.

Coco’s handbag is her weapon, which according to Fandom is called Gianduja. The name comes from an Italian confection made of chocolate and hazelnut paste, which hearkens back to the character name.

Gianduja looks harmless but is actually quite heavy. It can be used as a bludgeoning weapon in handbag form or as a machine gun in gun form.

Naming Rules

Almost all character names and team names follow Monty Oum’s color naming rules, which basically require that all names should be inspired by color. The most notable exception is Ozpin, which makes sense later on.

In the past of Remnant, there was a Great War, during which art was destroyed and artistic suppression expressed. In response to that, later generations named their children based on color as a symbolic choice that meant they would not accept this kind of oppression.

Some examples are:

Ruby--an obvious color

Weiss–German for “white”

Yang–Chinese for “sun,” suggests the color yellow

Blake–Old English for “black”

Furthermore, some characters are named to allude to fairy tale characters, such as how “Weiss Schnee” is a reference to Snow White.

Fight Scenes

The fight scenes in the Vytal tournament are phenomenal. I won’t tell you which teams matched up, but just think of the most skilled fighters with the most creative weapons. That’s what it was, one after another. I will say that we finally figure out what Velvet’s fighting style is, which is super exciting.

The battle of Qrow vs. Winter is one of favorites and comes up early in the volume.

Setting

Amity Colosseum is a floating arena that usually resides in Atlas. It is mobile and moves to the host kingdom of the Vytal festival every time the festival is held. The ground can change terrain randomly and this is used to challenge the fighters and add to the entertainment.

Music

Unlike with many anime, the music in RWBY was created exclusively for RWBY, with foreshadowing built into the songs and songs that seem linked to specific characters.

The music was composed by Jeff Williams, and his daughter Casey Lee Williams does a lot of the vocals. According to Fandom, Jeff Williams does not regard the songs as canon and asserts that they should not be taken literally.

To me, that just seems like he is covering for himself and Rooster Teeth in case the story ends up veering too far from the lyrics, but I know that so far the songs fit the theme and story very well.

My favorite song in Volume 3 is “Neon,” which is basically Neon making fun of a member of Team RWBY.

Intro

The intro is better animated than previous intros and highlights the darker nature of Volume 3. It shows important heroes and villains and foreshadows what is to come.

The intro also delves into the past a bit with well-placed hints.

Balance

Even though this volume is a bit darker than the previous ones, there is still a lot of humor. For instance, the dialogue is still funny at times.

Qrow: “They don’t give medals for almost.”

Ruby: “They do and they’re called silver!”

There is also a fairy tale quality to the past that Ozpin describes in RWBY. The villains’ threatening schemes add a dark element to this volume.

Animation

The 3D animation of RWBY is made using Poser, and thus differs greatly from most other anime. The animation is simple and does not involve a lot of shading and shadow like later volumes have. There are scenes like in the forest where it really shows how far the animators have come.

Contribution to Anime

RWBY is unique because it is one of the few American anime. It is filled with references to Western pop culture and folk tales, as well as some references to Eastern culture. Additionally, its animation style, while underdeveloped, sets out on a separate path from typical anime.“

Conclusion

Volume 3 is where RWBY really takes off and improves. If you like this volume, keep in mind that later volumes will get even better.

I recommend this anime for ages 13 and up.

MHA Season 3 Features Harrowing Villains, Flamboyant Heroes, and Dorms!

Spoiler-Free Anime Review:

My Hero Academia Season 3

Rating: 9 out of 10 stars

Intro

Since My Hero Academia is currently my favorite anime, there is no big surprise it is rated high. I am willing to acknowledge its flaws, but these are few. It has so many strong points in its favor! I watched it twice, once with my siblings subbed and once with my dad dubbed.

Warning! Although there are no spoilers for Season 3, there are some spoilers for earlier seasons.

Background

My Hero Academia Season 3 was released in 2018. It was produced by the studio Bones and directed by Kenji Nagasaki. The plot is based on the graphic novels by  Kōhei Horikoshi.

You can watch My Hero Academia on Crunchyroll, Funimation, and Hulu.

Summary

UA students participate in the forest lodge trip, work on their ultimate moves, decorate dorm rooms, and enroll in the provisional licensing exam.

Pros

  • Recap episode that also adds to the story, catching newcomers up to speed
  • The relationship between Kirishima and Bakugo is sweet
  • Creative quirks
  • Dangerous and effective villains
  • Backstory of Tomura Shigaraki
  • New and unique characters
  • Attractive intros and outro
  • Catchy music
  • Dorm room decorating is hilarious and brilliant
  • Actual consequences for dangerous decisions
  • Creating ultimate moves is really cool
  • The provisional licensing exam is awesome
  • Original art style

Cons

  • Mineta being a typical creep and harassing girls
  • Mei Hatsume is uncomfortably touchy with the guys, in what is probably unintentional harassment
  • The second outro is kind of boring and uncreative

Observations

  • How did Ashido manage to high-five Hagakure (Invisible Girl)?
  • Bakugo has cooking skills…also, he’s totally a nerd!

Review

Recap

The first episode is a recap of what has happened so far and about the various quirks of the characters. Don’t skip it–it’s actually a funny episode with a swim competition and plenty of pool antics.

Relationships

Kirishima puts his elbow on Bakugo’s shoulder, and Bakugo does not completely flip out. That’s…amazing. It’s nice to see Bakugo on equal footing with Kirishima rather than him being like an underling.

Ochaco’s crush on Deku and his feelings toward her is a continued theme, but it remains true that romance is something the show doesn’t focus much on.

Quirks

There are plenty of interesting quirks involving blood, enhanced muscles, creating monsters from the earth, etc.

Seiji Shishikura has a particularly disturbing and effective quirk that he uses during the provisional licensing exam.

There are also old quirks that are worth noting for their creativity: such as explosive sweat, acid, engines on calves, frog abilities, and dark shadow.

Characters

My Hero Academia always has a ton of characters. Luckily for us, they all have their qualities that make them interesting, even the ones that don’t get as much screen time.

This season adds some new characters who are just as entertaining as the ones that have become so familiar.

The Wild, Wild Pussycats are a team of superheroes who have formidable quirks and spunky personalities.

Kota Izumi is a five-year-old kid who hates superheroes. He is not thrilled to meet the UA gang. Oddly when I first saw him I thought he was just a short man, and was surprised that he was a little kid instead. He is under the care of the Wild, Wild Pussycats.

We finally get to meet Bakugo’s parents. The way that his mom acts kinda hints at why he is so irate all the time. His upbringing undoubtedly sheds light on his current behavior.

Muscular is a villain we get to meet in Season 3, along with a whole team of members of the League of Villains.

It is worthwhile to note that we start getting backstories about the villains in Season 3. For instance, there is a lot of detail about Twice’s backstory. He’s one of my favorite villains.

In the Provisional Hero License Exam arc, we get introduced to members of different schools. These two from Shiketsu High School probably interact with Class 1-A the most.

Camie Utsushimi is on the left, and she has a kind of ditsy personality and does things that make other characters uncomfortable.

Inasa Yoarashi is on the right. He has a powerful quirk that makes him a match for Shoto Todoroki when it comes to power. He has an intense rivalry with Todoroki.

My favorite characters introduced this season are the Big Three. From left to right that’s Mirio Togata, Nejire Hado, and Tamaki Amajiki. They are all ridiculously powerful and have creative quirks. These guys are introduced now, but where they really get to shine is Season 4.

Plot

From fighting villains and testing for licenses to decorating dorm rooms, the plot keeps you interested from beginning to end. It throws in plenty of character development and backstories. I was hooked, and I don’t doubt you will be too if you enjoyed previous seasons.

Intros and Outros

The first intro shows many of the pro heroes and villains, as well as showing the students in action. The song is upbeat, quirky, and fitting for the show – Odd Future by Uverworld.

The first outro shows a bunch of sketches of characters. It’s actually really fun and attractive, using comic book panels in many sections. The art style is beautiful and it includes references to things such as pez dispensers. It features the song Update by miwa.

Btw, don’t click on the links to the second intro and outro below if you don’t want spoilers.

The second intro is basically showing shots of the Provisional Hero License Exam, introducing the characters in pictures, and is just fun. Seeing Ms. Joke flirt with Aizawa is hilarious. I also like that they put Invisible Girl in the spotlight for the final image because she is character that is usually not focused on. There is an odd scene with a pink-haired character who never shows up in the show, but apparently they were from a canceled filler. This intro features the song Make My Story by Lenny code fiction.

The second outro is terribly boring and shows Midoriya walking slowly and rigidly, and All-Might walking upside down. It’s pretty awful. It features the song Long Hope Philia by Masaki Suda.

Music

Below are all the full songs from the outros and intros–my favorite of these is Odd Future and my least favorite is Long Hope Filia. These are the music videos, so they don’t show the My Hero Academia characters.

  • Odd Future by Uverworld – Kind of odd music video with a horse and dancer, and the whole scene turning red like a murder scene occasionally. My 10th favorite anime song.
  • Update by miwa – This really is a great song in its entirety and the music video looks kind of like a school performance. It doesn’t have anywhere near as many views as the other songs chosen for My Hero Academia, which is a shame.
  • Make My Story by Lenny Code Fiction – the music video is a bunch of dudes dancing and singing in a field with a bunch of spotlights. The song is catchy.
  • Long Hope Philia by Masaki Suda – Not one of my favorite songs, but not bad either. The music video shows a sleeping man in a chair, a bunch of exhausted looking people shambling about, and Japanese phrases being written on various surfaces. I got tired just watching those people looking tired, and the music video is confusing, but that’s probably because I don’t know Japanese.

Art Style

The animation was done by Studio Bones, which also did the style of Fullmetal Alchemist, another one of my favorite anime.

The style is different from Fullmetal Alchemist because it uses bold, bright colors and deep shadows for contrast. The pupils of characters are much smaller than in most anime.

Harassment

Hatsume is somewhat problematic because she is super touchy with guys even though they are clearly uncomfortable. Above is Hatsume, having fallen on Midoriya. This was an accident, but she seems strangely happy about it even though Midoriya is horrified. She’s in no big hurry to get off either.

This is not as bad as Mineta, who continuously objectifies girls and women. For instance, he goes to great lengths to see the girls naked while they are bathing. The other characters chastise him and acknowledge that he is doing wrong, but the whole thing is still portrayed as a joke.

Observations

Not sure how Ashido managed to high five Invisible Girl perfectly. In the same battle, even supporting characters make themselves useful, which I appreciate. It wasn’t just Bakugo, Todoroki, and Midoriya doing all the hard work.

We learn that Bakugo can cook in this season, which is kind of surprising since he has zero patience for most things. Furthermore, it is shown that Bakugo has the qualities of a stereotypical nerd–getting high grades, going to bed early…which is ironic considering he always calls Midoriya “you damn nerd.”

Conclusion

Watch this anime. It’s great. Obviously check out the first two seasons first, but keep in mind that the seasons get progressively better. At least up to Season 4. While I’m writing this, part of Season 5 is out, but I’m reserving judgment on that until the season finale.

I would recommend this anime for ages 13 and up.
