Day 8 – Riko and Reg’s Sufferings in The Fourth Layer of The Abyss

Episode 10

Anime: Made in Abyss

I watched this anime knowing the glory behind it. I mean, people always gush about this anime not being only cutesy and generic and that it’s much darker than it looks. People also gush about how the world of the anime is stunningly beautiful. Because of these, I went and watched the anime with a very high expectation and with the preconceived notion that this anime is going to extremely great. But sadly, I didn’t find it all that interesting, at least not as much as other people told me so. The biggest drawback to me is that I just find the fantasy world of the anime not as interesting as I thought. The concept of the abyss is pretty great but I’m just not curious enough to know more about the abyss.

Review

You know, summarizing a romance anime is pretty easy because the premise is really simple. But for people only reading the synopsis, they might be turned off by it (and confused because of the many names). It’s basically the same like any other romance drama out there. Simply said, the appeal of a romance genre is not in the plot but in the characters. So then, let’s go straight to the characters. I’ll explain about the two main characters pretty briefly because I don’t really think they’re that interesting compared to other characters.

Nichijou Review

Arm_wrestling_ep3.png

Synopsis

The anime is about the everyday normal lives of two main group of characters. The first one is Yukko, a highschool girl and her two best friends Mio and Mai. The second is Nano, a teenage robot invented by an 8 year old girl named Hakase Shinonome who also invented a scarf that can make animals talk. Well, that’s not normal at all but whatever.

Review

I stumbled upon a video about Yukko saying ‘selamat pagi’ and it intrigued me. Though I didn’t decide to watch it right after. A few months after, I watched a couple of videos on YouTube regarding Nichijou and found it super funny so I thought I really should just watch the entire series. That’s how I got into this anime.

Nagi no Asukara Review

Nagi no asukara

Synopsis

Four middle schoolers Hikari, Chisaki, Manaka and Kaname have to move to a new school on the surface after their school is closed due to low number of students. Being sea dwellers, they find it a bit hard to accommodate and comfort themselves in their new school as both the sea dwellers and the surface dwellers have prejudice attitude towards each other.

The first surface dwellers to actually become friends with the sea dwellers is Tsumugu but this actually only makes their relationship much more complicated.

Review

I watched a pretty similar anime called Anonatsu de Matteru/Waiting in The Summer and thought that the love triangles in that anime is not enough. And then I watched this anime, Nagi no Asukara and thought “this is exactly what I was looking for all this while!!! All the very deliberately convoluted love triangles, this anime is perfect!!!” Don’t get me wrong, I really like Anonatsu but I think I might like it more if the love triangles are more complicated and I think that the ending is not as satisfying.

Review

Okay now, why didn’t I review the whole anime? Well, that’s because I think all the other characters’ background stories are pretty…forgettable. Yes the characters are strong and their background stories are tragic and dark but I just I don’t remember much from other characters. That’s because the pacing of the anime is too rushed, I didn’t have the time to really get attached to any of the characters except Amane. The bakcground story of Amane is, to me, well paced. I feel thrilling only when watching Amane’s route. It is the best background story in the series in my opinion. So, let’s just go to what I think about her background story.

Review

After witnessing Attack on Titan, I wanted to watch something with a more toned down atmosphere. Something which has nothing to do with killing. Something more calm. Well, it turns out that I found this adorably cute moe anime series. I thought, even if the anime is just Moe blob slice of life where nothing happens, it’d still be a good choice of anime to watch. I found this anime through Yamaki’s review. I felt super relaxed when I read his review not particularly because of his words but because of the pictures (wait what?). The serene feeling that got to me was so strong I thought this must be the anime I was looking for. Why not give it a try? It might be good. Well honestly to me, it’s really good.
