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.

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.

Anime Review: Steins;Gate 0

Details: You can watch it at https://www.crunchyroll.com/steinsgate-0 . More information can be found at https://myanimelist.net/anime/30484/Steins_Gate_0

Score: 6/10

So I tried to sit through this thing, but it was just too boring. I got to episode fourteen before I just gave up and started fast forwarding through the episode to see what happens. The good news is that there is a nice ending waiting at the end of this series. The bad news is that the episode are so filled with boring fluff that getting to that ending is painful. There are plot twists and developments throughout this series, but the slow pacing just kill this show for me. I do not recommend this show unless you are a desperate fan of the Steins;Gate franchise.

Anime Review: One Piece, Episode 892

Details: More information can be found at http://onepieceofficial.com/ and https://www.crunchyroll.com/one-piece and https://myanimelist.net/anime/21/One_Piece

Score: 7.5/10

For the last couple of years, the animation quality for most episodes have been tolerable to downright crap. Some fight scenes were animated well, but most episode were paced and animated in a lackluster way, never keeping my interest long enough to watch a full episode. With episode 892, that all changes. The art style, animation quality, and production values are so damn good that if they keep this up, I’m probably going to ravenously watch through this entire season.

Anime Review: Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba

Score: 7/10

Kimetsu No Yaiba is a fairly standard shounen story, but it hooked me with it’s impressive animation style and use of computer generated images. To my memory, this is the only anime that uses computer generated images this competently.
