SSSS. Gridman – First Impressions (Episodes 1-4)

What’s it about? A boy with amnesia is sucked into an ancient computer and transformed into a massive robot so that he can stop kaiju from destroying the city. When the battle is over the world resets and the casualties histories are altered.

What are your first impressions? The kaiju fights are impressive. Tower blocks come crashing to the ground. It’s total destruction. There is obviously something more to it though with the way the city returns to normal the next morning and everyone’s memories are erased except for the members of the Gridman Alliance. My gut feeling is that it’s all a virtual world, but at this stage, who knows.

Favourite character so far? Calibur, the quirky Samurai is by far the coolest character. He can transform into a giant sword for Gridman to use. He also kind of reminds me of Lupin III.

Who do you want to see more of? Rikka is probably the most interesting character. She’s been pulled into this crazy situation by the location of the ancient computer and is, therefore, the most reluctant hero. Surely, that is what caused Yuta to pass out outside her shop and lose his memories. Rikka also has some history with Akane, which could get interesting.

Are you going to continue watching? I will, but mostly because I’ve formulated a theory and need to see if I’m right. Normally, I would bond with the characters and that would be more than enough to keep me going. However, other than Calibur and Rikka, I don’t really feel anything for the cast. That can change, but that’s how I feel right now.

Magical Girl Raising Project – Season One

What did you watch and why? Again, I was looking for something safe to watch while the kids were around. It had cute animation and magical girls… and oh no… not again!

One line pitch! Cute girls with magical powers murder one another because of a clerical error…

What’s it really about? Koyuki loves Magical Girls. She reads the manga and plays the online game. Then the in-game avatar comes to life and offers her the chance to become a real magical girl, giving her powers and abilities so that she can help people and collect magical candies. At least that’s how it starts. With one small announcement, it suddenly becomes a relentless battle to be the last one standing.

The Master of Ragnarok & Blesser of Einherjar – Season One

What did you watch and why? I’m a sucker for Norse mythology so the title grabbed my attention, as long as it is! Then I saw the image and there was no turning back.

One line pitch! Teenage time traveller rules ancient lands with the help of smartphone…

What’s it really about? That actually pretty much sums it up. Thanks to his smartphone and access to all of the internet, Yuuto Suoh now controls the Wolf Clan and leads their army against invaders. He’s also surrounded by a group of magic-wielding warrior maidens… tough break!
