Anime Review: Vinland Saga

Details: I’ve watched the eleven episodes that have aired so far. More information can be found at https://vinlandsaga.jp/ and https://myanimelist.net/anime/37521/Vinland_Saga

Score: 7.6/10

I’m eleven episodes in and I can tell that this is going to be an epic story. Vinland Saga is a story that takes place during the medieval period up around the Nordic territories. It follows the tale of a boy as he becomes a man and a Viking. It is not lost on me one how odd it is that I, an American, is watching a Japanese anime about Vikings from Denmark.

TV Show Review: Young Justice: Outsiders

Details: Watched about nineteen episodes this season. More information can be found at https://www.dcuniverse.com/videos/young-justice/58/season-3?page=2

Score: 5.7/10

Young Justice: Outsiders has some of the worst writing I’ve ever heard. The dialogue is just painful. Which is depressing because this is the only animated DC Comics show airing right now. As someone who grew up with Batman: The Animated Series, Superman, Batman Beyond and Justice League, this is just sad.

That means rivals, supernatural superpowers, a big bad boss controlling everything, etc.

Anime Review: Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind

Details: I’m up to episode thirty-seven. More information can be found at https://www.crunchyroll.com/jojos-bizarre-adventure and https://myanimelist.net/anime/37991/JoJo_no_Kimyou_na_Bouken__Ougon_no_Kaze

Score: 8/10

There really is nothing else like Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure. One of the oldest running franchises, Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure has inspired, been referenced to and been copied by countless other anime and manga to some extent. It’s one of the most often meme’d things on the internet. Golden Wind continues this tradition by being one of the craziest, most nonsense shows I’ve ever watched. I love this show.
