Anime Review Roundup
Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai was the first review last week, and with a title like that, you can bet that I was going to pay attention. It turns out to be a really interesting and well-made show, one of those harem mysteries in the vein of Kanon and Clannad, but with more of a scientific bent to them. The Rascal of the title helps a bunch of girls with some strange symptoms related to adolescent stress, and he manages to fall in love in the process. Click on the review to read more.
Persona5 The Animation: The Daybreakers. I’ll freely admit that I’m not the biggest Persona fan, but having seen the Persona 4 series and the Persona 3 movies, it’s clear that if you like the franchise, then Persona5 will live up to your expectations. The issue is that it’s a single, solitary episode on a Blu-ray disc. It’s not the most efficient use of disc space, and a single 25 minute adventure may not satisfy. There is a Persona5 series to come though.
