*This rating is unbiased and based completely on the honest ratings for each category and so may often be lower than my personal rating. This is the rating you’d probably like to go by when deciding if you’ll watch a series or not, unless my explanation for my personal rating of why it deserved a better rating is one you agree with

Personal Overall Rating (based solely on my personal enjoyment): 11/10

*This rating is totally biased and based completely on my personal feelings of the anime. This will often be higher than the technical rating because sometimes I love certain series despite them being kind of bad. My reasons for the higher rating will often be given here or in the GC.

Should You Watch: If you like the idea of Steampunk Spy Girls being Bad@ss, yes!

General Comments: Honestly, PriPri is probably the most underrated anime this season. It probably got overshadowed by the other great things this season and while I can admit that it’s technically not above certain other shows this season, it was the most unique, original and enjoyable. However, this is an opinion that can be nothing less than subjective as it is for me and my absolute adoration for it comes down to three basic things. It’s got a Military/Spy theme, it’s got badass moe girls and it’s got yuri. Those who know me know shows with these three things are like catnip to me and adding in the steampunk ascetic and an interesting story, I’m in love. This is my number one of the season on a personal level, but I’m sure that there are other shows that are technically the best of the season (Made in Abyss). PriPri isn’t perfect technically speaking, but personally I can’t get enough and I’ll be singing it’s praises for quite a while. I pray it’ll have a second season soon. If you liked Izetta, you will love this too, as it’s similar. So I highly recommend it, but if you’re of the type who dislikes a female-centric plot with no male MC, stay away.

Re:Creators

Genre Tags: Action, Sci-Fi, Fantasy

Seasons/Episodes: 22

Synopsis: Humans have designed countless worlds—each one born from the unique imagination of its creator. Souta Mizushino is a high school student who aspires to be such a creator by writing and illustrating his own light novel. One day, while watching anime for inspiration, he is briefly transported into a fierce fight scene. When he returns to the real world, he realizes something is amiss: the anime’s headstrong heroine, Celestia Yupitilia, has somehow returned with him.

Before long, other fictional characters appear in the world, carrying the hopes and scars of their home. A princely knight, a magical girl, a ruthless brawler, and many others now crowd the streets of Japan. However, the most mysterious one is a woman in full military regalia, dubbed “Gunpuku no Himegimi,” who knows far more than she should about the creators’ world. Despite this, no one knows her true name or the world she is from.

Meanwhile, Souta and Celestia work together with Meteora Österreich, a calm and composed librarian NPC, to uncover the meaning behind these unnatural events. With powerful forces at play, the once clear line between reality and imagination continues to blur, leading to a fateful meeting between creators and those they created.

Should You Watch: This is so meta for creators, I think it should be a requirement for them. For regular viewers however, it depends on if you’re ok with dialogue heavy shows and world building between the action.

General Comments: Re: Creators probably had the most interesting plot of all the anime this season. It featured a kind of creatorception, where created worlds and characters entered the world of their own creators. It’s fascinating, because what creator would ever imagine meeting their fictional creation? It makes you wonder, what would you do? Would they maintain their created personalities, or can they develop their own will and motivations? Can they live apart from the world you have crafted for them? All of these questions and concepts are explored in this series and it’s done in a very interesting, unique and almost perfect way. There are so many layers to the concept, it almost blows your mind, especially once the climax hits. It’s honestly an experience you must see for yourself. I especially encourage any type of creator, be it writer, artist, game developer and so on, to watch this anime, as it will really offer a unique perspective on your craft and the deeper significance it can hold. The pace is a bit slow moving and their is a lot of world building and storytelling, but it’s all worth it for the pay off in the finale.

Should You Watch: If you like slow-paced action and fantasy or watched Hanamuru, yes.

General Comments: So, this show was the action counterpart of Touken Ranbu: Hanamuru Days. It featured new characters mostly, with an addition appearance of one or two characters we saw in the previous series. This series was certainly more action than it’s predecessor, but it was slow-moving. I found it hard to remain attentive at times because things seemed to move so slowly, but towards the later half of the series, things picked up and got more interesting as well as more feelsy. Undeniable however, is that the animation was amazing as only Ufotable can be and the sword boys were a fujoshi’s paradise. The Bishounen characters and implicit BL between certain characters were still the biggest draw, at least for me. I’m not sure if I’d have enjoyed it quite as much without those aspects, but it was definitely an enjoyable series overall.
