Recently I got into an anime mood again so I started 3 new animes and wanted to share the thoughts I had so far on them. Oh, and before I start I’m stating right now that if any of the animes have mangas I have not read them.
I’ve watched all of the original and loved it so I got really excited when I found out they were remaking it. Obviously, the biggest deal is Vash’s redesign which I mostly love, the only thing I don’t like is that his fake arm is just out for everyone to see. I really liked how in the original it was hidden and it was a surprise when we learned that his arm was fake so I was a little disappointed that that scene won’t happen. But besides that, I love the rest of his redesign especially since I wasn’t a huge fan of how his original design made him have massive shoulders compared to his waist size. I’m also very happy that they seem to have gotten the essence of Vash correct, you know how he’s a kooky pacifist who you forget can be massively dangerous until he does something insane with his gun, they’ve seem to gotten that right(so far). The only other thing that made me sad was that, so far it doesn’t look like they are including Milly which I think is disappointing because I enjoyed Milly.
I randomly came across a trailer for this show and knew immediately that I had to watch it! And I’ve loved everything about it so far. I’ve seen a lot of comments describing it as a gay SpyXFamily but I embarrassingly have to admit I haven’t watched SpyXFamily so I can’t say for sure if it is or not. But my biggest hope for this show is that it will be like Yuri On Ice in the way that it only claimed to be a sports anime but was undeniably a romance. I want that for Buddy Daddies too.
The Iceblade Sorcerer Shall Rule the World
I had to hunt down this show after seeing a random clip on Instagram and so far I’m not regretting that decision. A lot of comments I’ve seen about this show is that it’s a show that knows it’s using all of the ridiculous tropes and is leaning into it to make it more ridiculous but I have a different opinion. I think it’s trying to lull us into a false sense of security by making it lighthearted and silly but then it’s going to quickly change into a much more serious show. We’ve had 2 moments already that show that Ray has serious trauma and PSTD and I feel like it’s going to focus on that more as the show progresses. So, I’m pretty intrigued by this show.
