Quick First Impressions: Sora o Miageru Shoujo no Hitomi ni Utsuru Sekai, Ride Back, and Slayers Evolution-R
Sora o Miageru Shoujo no Hitomi ni Utsuru Sekai
Thoughts: Something new and interesting.
Kyoto Animation surprised me by breaking their chain of high school romance series. I read that this was a remake, and I’ve never seen the original series of Munto. However, I was very impressed with what I saw with this episode. The music and character designs were decent at least. By the looks of what the characters have done, I’d say the potential is there for something new at least. It’s interesting to me, since I haven’t seen any type of action in a Kyo Ani series yet. So, it’ll be fun to see what happens and how the plot develops.
Thoughts: Seemed rather bland
This series really didn’t stand out or have anything special that would make me want to continue watching it. I loved the character designs, but the plot was a wreck I’d say. The whole Iron Horse mech thing was pretty dumb. If they want to make a robot anime, then put in better robots. Also, the girl walked into the right place at the right time to receive a free custom Iron Horse. That made it much less interesting. The main character is also rather boring.
Thoughts: The faces are pretty funny
I never got into the Slayers series much. They were funny at times, but I couldn’t stand the character designs. The action wasn’t that great either. This episode basically had the same elements as its predecessors. Slayers fans will most likely enjoy this. If you’re just looking for an action series then look elsewhere.
