Back again! Here’s the second half of what I reviewed this season. Some unexpected gems and also the worst the season has to offer.
As always, one line summaries are also linked to my longer reviews.
I’ve wanted to try out Cutie Honey for a while but this just isn’t the installment for it, making Honey a teenager despite several franchise installments where she’s an adult and amping up all the stale, homophobic jokes from the original 70s incarnation. Gimme Re: Cutie Honey instead.
I’m late to the party but this is damned fun and striking, with a dedication to showcasing Ainu culture in a respectful way and a solid main dynamic. The CG is hilarious but so far it hasn’t shot things in the foot.
This came right the fuck out of nowhere and surprised me by being a 90s-style “broke losers in an absurd universe” comedy spinning off of mobile game logic the way Slayers prods at D&D. It’s got charm.
It’s smug, ugly, dull, and really hates women despite ostensibly marketing to them. I want to punch its stupid face.
I expected it to be sleazy, it’s right there in the “tech that enslaves people” premise. I’m insulted by the fact that it seems to think it has Deep Thoughts. I have more respect for outright porn than these masturbatory troglodytes.
Here’s all the premieres with content warnings in one place, both my reviews and the rest of the team’s.
