This was a pretty bombastic first episode. I have no idea why that word is the one that popped into my head, but there you have it. It was what I expected in some ways, but completely deviated from my expectations in other ways.
Hm. I don’t post for a while and the first post to come up in a while is yet another promotion for another blog? You got that right.
I don’t have any excuses, but hopefully the posts Irina has looked over here will appease you people.
Well 2018 started with a BANG, or in my case, an avalanche! Between the rugged weather we’ve been getting up here, the sort of drowsy, frantic scramble everyone has been going through to get back into the swing of things after the holidays both at work and here, I found that there just weren’t enough […]
Still confused about what exactly is the focus of this series, I’ve decided to drop it, not because of a bad episode or anything, but simply because I can’t stand this feeling of uneasiness while watching.
This anime is pretty good. In terms of animation and sound, it is visually nice while pleasing my ears all the while too. I really have no complaint for this series with regards to those two.
But, I can’t help but drop it. Ever since my first impressions, I have been having a bad feeling with regards to watching this anime. It started as a confusion over whether it is an ecchi anime or yuri anime. Then it turned into extreme confusion, and now with the third episode I really don’t even know anymore. Is this supposed to be ecchi? Or it’s pure yuri romance?
Whichever way it goes, I’m not really into either. Furthermore, there is something in this series that just does not sit right with me for some reason. I can’t pinpoint it but it has to do with the female MC.
…And I’ll now gladly drop this series to watch others that can entertain me better. If you are a fan of yuri romance, however, by all means, watch this series.
Final rating: 7/10
Verdict: “As of today, you’re expelled!”
Darling in the FranXX. A name to compete with Hakata Tokotsu Ramens in terms of “names that makes no sense on first look”. Giant robots? Evangelion look-alike! Character design? As typical as possible!
…wait, what did you say? A collaboration between A-1 pictures and Studio Trigger?! SIGN ME UP!! Anime original? HELL YEA!
So…yup. That’s about sums up Darling in the FranXX. Thanks for reading this last first impressions!
Well, after this episode, the mystery of the name of this series still remains unresolved. Why does the name contain “ramen” even though the main plot is about assassins? We will never know, for now at least.
Still, the name aside, this anime had a really solid starting and already makes me want to watch more.
