Anime of the Year 2019-II Spring - Shingeki no Kyojin Season 3 Part 2



Nothing could approach the level of Shingeki no Kyojin Season 3 Part 2 . Other curiosity is One Punch Man 2nd Season . 
1. Kimetsu no Yaiba Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba 鬼滅の刃  [ufotable] (Finished 3/26)
Tags: Shounen Historical Action, Award Winning, Fantasy
Ever since the death of his father, the burden of supporting the family has fallen upon Tanjirou Kamado's shoulders. Though living impoverished on a remote mountain, the Kamado family are able to enjoy a relatively peaceful and happy life. One day, Tanjirou decides to go down to the local village to make a little money selling charcoal. On his way back, night falls, forcing Tanjirou to take shelter in the house of a strange man, who warns him of the existence of flesh-eating demons that lurk in the woods at night.
When he finally arrives back home the next day, he is met with a horrifying sight—his whole family has been slaughtered. Worse still, the sole survivor is his sister Nezuko, who has been turned into a bloodthirsty demon. Consumed by rage and hatred, Tanjirou swears to avenge his family and stay by his only remaining sibling. Alongside the mysterious group calling themselves the Demon Slayer Corps, Tanjirou will do whatever it takes to slay the demons and protect the remnants of his beloved sister's humanity.
It's just a pretty drawn shounen. I seriously don't understand the appeal of shounens. Tried to watch some anime podcasts about it, and argumentation there was rather bleak, mostly about aesthetics and fighting scenes.

Seeking to restore humanity's diminishing hope, the Survey Corps embark on a mission to retake Wall Maria, where the battle against the merciless "Titans" takes the stage once again.

Shingeki no Kyojin Season 3 Part 2 follows Eren as he vows to take back everything that was once his. Alongside him, the Survey Corps strive—through countless sacrifices—to carve a path towards victory and uncover the secrets locked away in the Yeager family's basement.

Due to circumstances out of his control, he is partnered with Chuuya Nakahara, the gifted yet impulsive leader of a rival clan known as the Sheep, to uncover the truth behind the case and shine a light on the myth of Arahabaki—the god of fire who might just lead Dazai to the case's solution.

In the kingdom of Earlshide, Merlin Wolford was once regarded as a national hero, hailed for both his power and achievements. Preferring a quiet life however, he secludes himself deep in the rural woods, dedicating his time to raising an orphan that he saved. This orphan is Shin, a normal salaryman in modern-day Japan who was reincarnated into Merlin's world while still retaining his past memories. As the years pass, Shin displays unparalleled talent in both magic casting and martial arts, much to Merlin's constant amazement.
On his 15th birthday, however, it becomes apparent that Shin only developed his combat skills and nothing else, leaving him with blatant social awkwardness, a lack of common sense, and a middling sense of responsibility. As a result, Shin enrolls in the kingdom's Magic Academy to hone his skills and mature among other teenagers. However, living a normal life is impossible, as he is established as a local celebrity almost as soon as he arrives.
As Shin Wolford adjusts to his high school life in the capital, he makes new friends, learns about the world, and fights off the various forces of evil surrounding him and his city.
Very mundane and typical magic university start with noname cliché characters don't leave this anime a chance.

Nariyuki Yuiga, an impoverished third-year high school student, works tirelessly to receive the VIP nomination, a scholarship that would cover all of his college tuition fees. In recognition of his hard work, the headmaster awards him the renowned scholarship.
However, this scholarship is given under one condition: he must tutor the school's geniuses in their weakest subjects! Joining his new brigade of pupils are the math maestro Rizu Ogata, who wants to study humanities; the literature legend Fumino Furuhashi, who wants to study science; and Yuiga's sports-savvy childhood friend, Uruka Takemoto, who is hopeless at everything else.
Bokutachi wa Benkyou ga Dekinai follows Yuiga as he tries to teach his three eccentric tutees in a series of strange and comedic antics. But as Ogata's and Furuhashi's ambitions conflict with their talents, will Yuiga be able to help his students achieve their dreams?
It does not work for me unlike Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai, because it's not clever and does not even have otaku tilt.

I can't appreciate and don't value chibi parodies.

Nande Koko ni Sensei ga? follows the daily life of Satou and his teacher as they continue to meet under similar conditions, growing ever closer with each encounter.
Just another short episode length ecchi for those still in puberty.

11. Carole & Tuesday キャロル&チューズデイ [Bones] (Finished 24/24)
Tags: Music Drama, Sci-Fi
It has been 50 years since mankind began its migration to the terraformed Mars, where they live in comfort due to advancements in AI. Carole lives in the metropolis of Alba City, working part-time by day and playing keyboard by night. Tuesday has run away from her home in Hershell City to escape the grip of her wealthy family, and instead hopes to pursue music with her acoustic guitar.
After a fateful encounter, the two decide to perform music together. Up against the AI singers that dominate the music world, the two of them believe that together they can convey their feelings through their songs. Will hard work and luck be enough for the duo to create the biggest miracle that Mars has ever seen?
Musical with actually good songs, but characters are flat and not developing, and everything just happens on its own.  Protagonists come from polarized circumstances, but after couple episodes they act just like manzai duo with synchronized reactions. And just the fact that everyone always listens songs in awe with mounths open is so irritating. I'm not enjoying it, can't do anything about it. Only glimples of former Watanabe magic is present here at moments

Even though the club is in dire need of members, new club president Takezou Kurata is unwilling to easily accept Chika's application due to his bad reputation. Nonetheless, after seeing Chika's seriousness and enthusiasm, Takezou allows the problem child to join, along with koto prodigy Satowa Houzuki and three of Chika's energetic friends. Kono Oto Tomare! follows the merry band of musicians as they aspire to play at the national competition.
It plays safely and uses all the best practice when approaching school club and shoujo and characters. As a result it's an artificial accustomed experience for those who can recognize used past works. Avoid if looking for fresh view or experience as there's hardly anything genuine here.

13. Midara na Ao-chan wa Benkyou ga Dekinai Ao-chan Can't Study! 淫らな青ちゃんは勉強ができない [SILVER LINK.] (Finished 3/12)
Tags: Shounen School Comedy, Romance, Ecchi
"Show them your A-O face!" As an innocent child, Ao Horie would unhesitantly proclaim the origins of her name. Now that she is in high school, she is determined to study hard in order to one day escape the influence of her lascivious father, a famous erotic author. However, when the amiable Takumi Kijima confesses to Horie, her mind runs wild with scandalous thoughts.
Moans eager to escape, legs crossing, and a warmth spreading through her body, Horie cannot help but misconstrue Kijima's rather pure motivations. To make things worse, no matter how hard she tries to ward off Kijima, his advances do not stop. Now, if only she could just study!
A whole series based on groundless puberty fantasies and misinterpretations grows boring very fast.

But not everything is as it seems.
Zoku Owarimonogatari details the story of Araragi's endeavors in this new world as he struggles to return to his home and understand the nature of this bizarre dimension.

15. Hitoribocchi no Marumaru Seikatsu ひとりぼっちの○○生活 [C2C] (Finished 3/12)
Tags: Shounen CGDCT, School Comedy
Many of us know what it is like to transition to a new school with few to no friends in a new environment, going through the arduous process of getting to know people again. Bocchi Hitori knows this struggle all too well, having just graduated from elementary school and thrown into middle school. Unfortunately, she suffers from extreme social anxiety: she faints when overwhelmed, vomits when nervous, and draws up ridiculously convoluted plans to avoid social contact. It does not help that her only friend from elementary school, Kai Yawara, will not be attending the same middle school as Bocchi. However, wanting to help her, Kai severs ties with Bocchi and promises to reconcile with her when she befriends all of her classmates in her new middle school class.
Even though Bocchi has no faith in herself, she is determined to be friends with Kai again. Summoning all of her courage, Bocchi takes on the daunting challenge of making friends with her entire class, starting with the delinquent-looking girl sitting in front of her...
Occasionally ok CGDCT even though not finding it funny. The closest comparison in the past would be Yuru Yuri, but that wins in every aspect, so can't treat them even remotely equally. It's primarily a waste of time, so can be liked only if you're ok with that.

16. Senryuu Shoujo Senryu Girl 川柳少女 [Connect] (Finished 2/12)
Tags: Shounen Romantic Subtext, School Comedy
To the students of Karai High School, Nanako Yukishiro is a pretty, calm, and cute 16-year-old. However, Nanako is no ordinary girl, as she cannot speak! Instead, Nanako communicates through senryuu—17-syllable-long poems.
Sixteen-year-old Eiji Busujima used to be delinquent in his middle school years. However, he has since turned over a new leaf due to his newfound love of senryuu. Despite his menacing looks, Eiji gets along well with Nanako as a fellow member of the Literature Club.
Even though Nanako is mute, the adorable pair have no problem communicating with each other. Senryuu Shoujo is a light and relaxing story of two teenagers' daily lives.
Total boredom, flat characters, artificial extension through all this haiku nonsense, lack of any complexity.

17. Fairy Gone Fairy gone フェアリーゴーン [P.A. Works] (Finished 12/12)
Tags: Adult Cast, Military Action, Fantasy
"Once upon a time, fairies were tools of war."
The story takes place in a world where fairies possess and dwell in animals, giving them mysterious abilities. By removing the organs of a possessed animal and transplanting them into humans, fairies can be summoned as an alter ego and be used as a weapon. Such individuals who used fairies as war tools were called "Fairy Soldiers." Once the war was over and they completed their roles, the soldiers lost their purpose. Some began working for the government, some joined the mafia, and some even became terrorists, as each chose their own way to live.
Nine years have passed since the war. The protagonist Mariya is a new recruit of "Dorothea," an organization which investigates and suppresses fairy-related crimes. Amidst the unstable political situation, criminals with lingering wounds from the war and past conflicts emerge and engage in terrorism as an act of revenge. This is the story of Fairy Soldiers, fighting for their own justice in a chaotic postwar world.
I tried to like it when it was released, but it made very little sense and just threw supernatural fights in the 19th century like world all the time. Confusion was the only lasting impression out of it.

In order to sustain the expeditions, people known as "anglers" specialize in dealing with Magmell's dangerous wildlife. One such angler is the highly-skilled and experienced Inyou, who performs search and rescue operations for clients with the help of his assistant, Zero.
Exploration superhero shounen episodic stories with pretense for some gore and cynism. Can't answer why continue watching it characters and stories are so unlikeable.

Takuya Arima is a young student whose father, a historian who has conducted various researches, disappeared recently. During a summer vacation Takuya receives a peculiar package from his missing father, along with a letter containing information about the existence of various parallel worlds. At first Takuya doesn't take it seriously, but soon he realizes that he possesses a device that allows him to travel to alternate dimensions. Is his father alive, after all? If so, where is he?
Watched it initially as hommage to the first game. Former aesthetics were definitely more pleasant. Nice slow story for those who have not played the game, but for me it was not enjoyable.

Tags: Anthropomorphic Action, Fantasy, Supernatural 
After the noble Kappa Kingdom falls to the Otter Empire, the Kappa prince Keppi loses much of his power and becomes helpless against the unseen Kapa-zombies. These zombies plague the world, and are the creations of the Otters and manifestations of people's deepest desires. With no other choice, Keppi must rely on three young boys: Kazuki Yasaka, who must carry a box with him wherever he goes; Enta Jinnai, Kazuki's childhood friend; and Tooi Kuji, a delinquent and a school truant.
By having the mythical organ called a shirikodama removed from them, the boys are able to become Kappa themselves and fight the Kapa-zombies. However, to defeat them, the boys must connect with each other via their minds, bodies, and—most importantly—secrets. As the Kappa Kingdom relies on these boys, they must reveal themselves as they have never done before, all the while learning that connections are fragile and truly precious things.
It should work for those who liked Mawaru Penguindrum. But for me it's just a mess full of nonsense.

Before them are the feelings of those left behind, a mysterious group manipulating in the shadows, and unveiling the hidden conspiracy. Takuya and Yuki, who both were initially strangers, would deepen their bond during the journey and unravel the mystery of the Lost city.
I remember watching it around half way through, but mystery about running away is one of the worst genres for me.

Young and unsuspecting Arata Miyako has been assigned to the Shinjuku Ward Office of the division, where he meets his fellow members Theo Himezuka and Kyouichi Sakaki.
On his first night, Arata finds himself on a mission where he discovers to his surprise that not only does every supernatural creature he once thought to be fictional actually exist, but also that he is the only human who can understand their non-human speech. Arata's surprises do not end there, as later that night, he meets a legendary creature called a Tengu that refers to him as the famous Heian-era exorcist, Abe no Seimei. Unfamiliar with the exorcist, Arata pays no mind and continues to work with his team, utilizing his unique ability to assist in the resolution of their cases.
Mistaken by many occult creatures as Abe no Seimei and quickly becoming notorious for his special ability during his work, Arata becomes curious of his origins and invests himself more into solving cases regarding occult creatures he encounters once he learns of a certain connection between himself and the exorcist. However, Arata will quickly find that dealing with supernatural creatures is not as simple as he thought, as danger begins to play a fundamental role in his everyday findings and his ability starts to present an unexpected issue.
It's almost impossible to interest me with occult mystery, but this one does not even try.

It's so rudimentary and cringy that I can't stop getting surprised with each comeback. And it's an absolutely not needed remake of the same super boring start.

However, when they arrive in the capital, they discover that the government has been overthrown and the deity Susanoo now reigns in its place.

Imagine this: you are living a normal day in your life. Maybe you are out with friends, eating your family's home-cooked meal or spending time with your girlfriend. When you next wake up, you are suddenly thrust into a strange, new world, surrounded by five strangers on a rapidly sinking boat in the middle of a storm.
For Natsu Iwashimizu, this is her new reality. Humanity has perished, and all that remains of the Japanese population are five groups of men and women who were chosen to be sent to the future in hopes of continuing mankind's existence. While every other person chosen has a useful talent such as martial arts, knowledge, or architecture, Natsu is a shy high school girl who cannot even raise her voice to shout. The new world is dangerous beyond imagination, and although Natsu seems to lack helpful skills, she must go with the others making their way to the "Seven Fuji" in order to survive.
Netflix anime usually means quirky unusaul plot, high visual quality and at the same time sour realization, blank characters and lots of artificial traits. But here even plot is generic survival of group of strangers in alien environment. You've seen one of them - you've seen all of them. Live action could add some liveliness, but this state is perilous.

Full CGI. The Chinese can't produce a good cyberpunk concept, because there can't be high tech and low life in China. Everything must be high and everyone must be super strong, especially in melee combat. And it's all based on a simple revenge story, so it's just not worth invested time for me.

Hakubo revolves around the daily life of Sachi Koyama, a high school violinist with promising talent. Although Sachi is content with her school life and retains friends within the music club, her favorite pastime is appreciating the scenery around her neighborhood in Iwaki, Fukushima while walking to her bus stop alone.
However, during one of Sachi's after-school walks, she has an unexpected meeting with Yuusuke Kijinami, a boy whom she often notices on her bus ride home. After offering to help Kijinami find a perfect view of the evening landscape—the subject of his next painting for his art club's exhibition—the two forge a bond over their mutual admiration of the beautiful scenery bathed in sunset. This chance encounter brings together these two souls who yearn to cherish the present, knowing full well how easily it can all slip away.
A normal title about school musical club sounds really boring, and it kind of is even though the musical side mends things just a little bit for me. Still better adolescent love story than anything from Makoto Shinkai .

The game is set in the continent of Babel, where the Tower of Babel looms large over seven nations. After the invention of alchemy led to its use as a tool of war that brought humanity to the brink of extinction, the seven nations struck an uneasy peace that led to a prohibition on alchemy for hundreds of years since. In the Continental Year 911, the nation of Lustrice broke the pact by assembling an army bolstered by alchemy, with ambitions of conquest over the continent. Led by Envylia, the six nations allied and struck down the rogue nation, casting alchemy once again to darkness. But 20 years after the war, alchemy once again begins to cause chaos in the land.
A wild mix of fantasy, isekai, dark mahou shoujo and sci-fi. As with most game adaptations, it does not feel integral and suited to be made into a movie.

Bloom Into You - I should comment on this back in Fall 2018, but better late than never. As you can see, it's indeed GL series and by GL series I mean the series that really focused on the GL romance alone. The story is about Yuu who like to read shoujo manga (Thus make the series aesthetic like shoujo manga) somehow manage to attract the most popular girl in the school Touko. From there Touko would keep getting closer to Yuu, although Yuu still not ready to accept Touko's feeling (Even though Touko already kissed Yuu several times) until the later times in the manga. For the info, the anime itself is ended at halfway of the manga, leaving the play that the casts prepared not animated, so it's too bad there's no second season to see the play in the anime. Oh yes, out of all GL series, so far this is the highest one on MAL as of now.

Fruit Basket 2019 - The remake of the anime series akin of Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood and Spice and Wolf 2024, although the studio decided to change the VAs and the director (Because the author didn't like the director of the original). For this series, the studio really adapted the manga much more faithfully compared to the 2001 series, and this series is the first part of the faithful adaptation with two more parts will come in the upcoming year. As for the premise, well let's just say it's still the same.

YU-NO - We obviously know about the VN, and it took 29 years to have proper adaptation with it also has improper H OVA adaptation. While the VN is quite historical, nowadays it would be seen as somewhat outdated story with many other anime already polished what YU-NO started, and it didn't help on how Takuya being pervert is not something that modern audience can easily accepted. Still, the game is influential enough so much that MAGES seen the potential of it and decided to remake the game with the anime art, which also received translation and attract new player who didn't know on how convoluted YU-NO could be. Forgot to mention the studio (And the remake) decided to change the VAs despite most of the older VAs are still alive, although the reasons is probably because of the contract and stuffs.

Kenja no Mago - Honestly the premise is very cliche, especially after there are some interesting isekai several years prior. I also like to say it has the worst introduction of the main villain, in which the author somehow think that have the MC almost defeated the main villain before said villain is retreated is the good idea. That said, at least I should credit the author to not give the MC full spotlight with he did his best to teach his friends how to use very strong magic, and the MC here was only ended up with one girl instead of harem like many other isekai works.

Bokuben - It's comedy series with Nariyuki was asked to teach different girls who happen to be quite bad at one particular subject, and those girls are happen to excel in the other subjects, so in short it's like Gotoubun with the anime decided to make the canon heroine for Nariyuki. Except the author realize it could be backfired seeing the comments from Nisekoi and Gotoubun, so the author decided to make the alternative endings for the other girls akin of VNs (Whether it's smart move or cowardly move is up to each of their own). It's just too bad that apparently there won't be any new anime from this, seeing the new season based on the alternative endings for each girls would be interesting to see.

Senko-san - It's about the worker from black company find a comfort in the 800 years old of fox girls, and from there the duo will meet a lot of people (Be it the normal human or supernatural creature). No much to say that it's good manga to read if you want something light to read.

Demon Slayer - Well Ufotable did very good job on animating this since the start, although it's still not quite widely known for the first 18 episodes. However, all was change when the particular animation in episode 19 goes viral thanks to Ufotable did a lot of works on the effects, and since then Demon Slayer popularity got exploded so much it has four seasons with we not have the 4th season aired with it will be followed with three grand finale movie. Massive popularity aside, story wise it's more like the homage to Jojo 2012 anime (Which adapt Phantom Blood and Battle Tendency) with both have vampire based opponents and superpower based on breath.

That's all for what I can comment in regard of Spring 2019 anime here.
