Code: Realize: Here we go again

This is a drop post for Code: Realize: Sousei no Himegimi. Not exactly a rant post, because there really isn’t much to rant about.

So, why did I drop the anime? Well, the anime seemed very impressive at the start: there was a relatively interesting premise, and the main character seems pretty unique. However, I’ve got basically the same complaint for this anime as I did for Katsugeki/Touken Ranbu: the basics are all there, but nothing is done about them. We spent 3 episodes watching them spin around in their mansion and gathering 1 new ally in the process, and in this fourth episode we get some things at last… but not before expositions and more set-ups. It was naturally slow already, but what got me disinterested was not exactly how the show is done, but more of how the characters, almost all of them, are left unexplored. I feel as if they are just hollow shells(pretty ones at that), and that’s not doing much for the show.

So, after barely sitting through episode 4, I decided to drop the show. It’s not bad, and you might like the show, but I didn’t really like it.

Final rating: 6/10
Verdict: “We need a plan.”

Luckily this came along and now I can do a first impressions on this instead!

General statement(tl;dr): Mediocre first episode but could lead to something more. Continue reading “Anime first impressions: Code:Realize: Sousei no Himegimi”
