Anime Review: Re:Zero: Starting Life in Another World – Frozen Bonds

Details: Also known as Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu – Hyouketsu no Kizuna. More information can be found at http://re-zero-anime.jp/ and https://myanimelist.net/anime/38414/Re_Zero_kara_Hajimeru_Isekai_Seikatsu_-_Hyouketsu_no_Kizuna

Score: 6.4/10

Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu – Hyouketsu no Kizuna is the second OVA for the popular Re:Zero series. It’s okay. The production quality is good, but the story itself made me feel nothing as it takes place far before the events of the main series. As a fan of Re:Zero, I only really care about the protagonist and the premise of the main series.

So when I heard they were making movies for the show, I was excited. After watching this movie, I’m still excited and looking forward to whatever future series or movies that will spin off from this film.

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.

Anime Review: Fire Force

Details: Watched three episodes. More information can be found at https://fireforce-anime.jp/ and https://myanimelist.net/anime/38671/Enen_no_Shouboutai

Score: 6.9/10

Fire Force answers the question, “Can we truly make an anime about anything?” The answer is yes. Fire Force is a shounen anime about fire fighters, but loaded up with all the shounen anime tropes anime fans are familiar with. That means rivals, supernatural superpowers, a big bad boss controlling everything, etc.
