Dropkick on My Devil!!

Okay as a contrast of moe visuals and Warner Bros-style violence, but that’s about all it’s got and will probably wear thin quickly.

Angolmois: Record of Mongol Invasion

It’s competent as a ragtag-group setup, but I’m old and cynical and the idea of “anime 300” gives me tremendous side eye given current world politics.

Lord of Vermilion: The Crimson King

It’s got all the hallmarks of A Square Enix Game, and waaaaaaay more characters than it can satisfyingly develop in 13 episodes. Kinda cute how proud it is to quote Hamlet of all things, though.
