‘Mob Psycho 100’ and its general humanity and moralistic, pacifistic outlook are refreshing in a genre of anime that focuses on power-ups over real character growth, epic fight scenes over mundane, everyday life, and the supernatural instead of the real.
The anime begs you to ask the question: what is a Neverland? Growing up, facing the world, there’s something intriguing about a promised neverland, a kind of utopia where you aren’t able to grow up not because you chose not to, but because the choice was taken out of your hands.
As one of the most popular anime of this past season, ‘Kimetsu no Yaiba: Demon Slayer’ excelled in depicting a compelling storyline with uniquely beautiful animation, catchy music, and a well-defined cast of characters. The anime stood out because of the mix of comedy, fantasy, and tragedy in a historical time period, and the impressive amount of detail in character design.
The long wait is over; ‘Tower of God’ finally has an anime, and even if it is not all what I hoped, I am still finding it enjoyable. We are thrown into a world with little explanation, and the sheer novelty and expanse of the Tower compels me to keep climbing.
