Ascendance of a Bookworm

Overview

Ascendance of a Bookworm (Honzuki no Gekokujou: Shisho ni Naru Tame ni wa Shudan wo Erandeiraremasen / 本好きの下剋上 ~司書になるためには手段を選んでいられません~) is an isekai anime based on a light novel, if you couldn’t tell by the insane length of the Japanese title. It’s also rated extremely high on MAL for whatever reason.

My best guess is the same people who liked TenSura and Dr. Stone are the ones who also like this series. But even that doesn’t make much sense. Sure, they’re all isekai about someone creating things, but Ascendance of a Bookworm doesn’t have any of the action the other two series have.

This time around we have a female main character who has been reincarnated into a world without books. And, since she loves books more than anything else in the world, she decides to make her life’s goal finding (or creating) books to read.

That’s basically the entire premise of the anime. It introduces some other potentially interesting concepts, such as mana which manifests as dōjutsu like in Naruto, but so far that hasn’t really been explored. But even if it is eventually explored, I don’t see why it really matters.

Mana was basically introduced into the series as a way to push Myne, the protagonist, along her journey to find books. However, she was already on that path, so mana doesn’t really have anything to do with it. It felt more like there was mana just because the series would have been too plain without it — but it still doesn’t add anything.

Oh, and despite this being a fantasy world, there are surprisingly few fantasy elements. There’s mana (barely) and some sort of fantasy plant, but that’s it.

Characters

Looking at the character list, this series actually had a lot more characters than I was thinking. However, most of them simply play support roles, like Myne’s entire family.

Myne is the main character of the series who was reincarnated in this bookless world. However, to say that she was reincarnated isn’t entirely accurate. Yes, she died, but she wasn’t reborn, or even really transported into this other world. Instead, she awoke within the body of a young girl who had recently died in her sleep.

This also means that Myne isn’t really the main character’s name. For all practical purposes it is, because Myne is the name of the girl whose identity she’s taken over, but her original name was Urano Motosu.

And, this body which now belongs to Myne (Urano), is very sickly. The previous host of this body died due to her illness, and it appears that Myne could share the same fate.

The other major character is Lutz, Myne’s best friend. I don’t think their ages were ever stated, but Lutz is either the same age as Myne or just slightly older. However, what’s interesting about that is they’re about the same size, despite it being stated that Myne is small for her age due to her illness.

Lutz comes from a family of craftsmen, but his dream is to become a merchant. This dream isn’t something his family supports, because as they explain it, merchants don’t have a set home. The goal of most merchants is to make enough money to open their own shop and become a craftsman.

Are There Books or Not?

Ascendance of a Bookworm is a bit strange in how it handles the existence of books, and writing in general. When Myne first enters this world, there’s actually no writing at all, let alone books.

Well, that’s not entirely accurate; there are books and writing, the series just makes it seem like there aren’t. Within her family’s home there’s no writing to be found, and her family doesn’t even know what a book is. Further, even when Myne goes to the market, there’s no writing in sight.

However, it’s also in the market where Myne gets her first glimpse of a book. And this is when she learns that books are extremely rare and valuable in this world — only the nobles can afford them.

Now, I’m not saying that the fact that books are relegated to the noble class (and the church) is strange. That actually was the case back when books were made of vellum and not paper. No, the issue is the fact that at the beginning of the series nobody seems to understand what writing and books are.

As I mentioned, Myne’s family doesn’t know what books are at the beginning of the series, and I’m pretty sure they were oblivious about writing as well. However, we later learn that Myne’s dad is an officer with the town guard, and all soldiers are taught how to read and write so they can make reports.

In fact, despite reading not being a requirement for the majority of people in this society, it turns out there are actually a lot of people who can. So why was writing such a mysterious thing at the beginning of the series? Was it just to set up the idea that Myne is going to have to work for her books?

Conclusion

Despite what the aggregate score on MAL will tell you, Ascendance of a Bookworm is actually a 5/10. The beginning of the series is extremely slow and doesn’t have much going on, so I originally had it down at a 3. But as the series progresses and we meet more characters and learn more about the world, it becomes bearable.

As for the OP and ED, they’re not the best. The OP song did grow on me over the course of the season, but the visuals aren’t really anything special. And the ED song and visuals are both just alright.

Afterschool Dice Club

Afterschool Dice Club

Afterschool Dice Club

Overview

Afterschool Dice Club (Houkago Saikoro Club / 放課後さいころ倶楽部) is another anime which falls into the “cute girls doing cute things” (CGDCT) subgenre of slice of life. And this time around it focuses on a group of high school girls who enjoy playing board games.

Now, you’ll notice that I used the word board games, but the title of the series uses “dice.” These aren’t exactly the same thing, and in fact, neither accurately represents what the girls play. I’d say board games is closer to the truth, but it’s probably more accurate to say they enjoy playing analog games.

They play board games, card games, and maybe one of the games they played included dice as well.

Anyway, my point is that they play a bunch of games and barely any, if any, actually used dice. So I don’t think that’s a very good title for the series. Maybe it’s just me, but the title Afterschool Dice Club makes it sound like an underage gambling anime — you know, like Kakegurui.

And I have to say, if this anime was more like Kakegurui then it would be better. I get that a lot of people don’t like that anime, but when you compare it to a series like this there’s no contest. Sure, this anime is a CGDCT series, but even compared to other CGDCT anime it’s pretty boring.

There’s no real plot, as with many slice of life series, which means the characters have to do the heavy lifting. And unfortunately, the characters in Afterschool Dice Club are just bland — they’re not even that cute all things considered.

Characters

The protagonist of this series is Miki Takekasa, a relatively quite girl who originally had no friends. Now, although she does gain a few friends over the course of the series, and becomes slightly more outgoing when talking to them, for the most part she’s the same from start to finish.

By the end of the series she mentions that she’s grown a lot thanks to her friends, but that’s not really the case. Her character barely develops at all, which normally wouldn’t matter too much in a series like this, but they make it a point to mention how far she has(n’t) come.

Miki’s first and best friend is Aya Takayashiki. Aya’s probably the cutest girl in the series, but that’s mainly due to the fact that she also isn’t the brightest. She enjoys just about everything except for losing, but she loses a lot because she’s not good at using her brain to win at games.

Midori Oono is the next girl to join the group, and is the one responsible for introducing Miki and Aya to analog games. She works at an analog game shop, and dreams of one day being a famous game creator.

Oh, and speaking of analog game shops, I never understood how these places make money. Even as this anime shows, people tend to just play games in them for free without actually making purchases.

The final member of the group is Emilia (no last name given). Emilia is either half Japanese and half German or entirely German. I forget, but what matters is that she’s an exchange student from Germany, the analog game capital of the world. And, like Midori, she hopes to one day be a game creator herself.

Cute Girls Playing Analog Games

Probably the best part of this anime is seeing the games the girls play. Most of the games, with the exception of the one Midori creates, are real games you could go out and purchase. And I thought this was a great thing to include because it actually makes a lot of these games seem like fun.

For example, I would totally play whatever that game was where the goal was to escape the island or whatever. I don’t remember what it was called, or all the rules to it, but it seems like an engaging and fun strategy game that actually has the potential to be different every time depending on how the board is set up.

Now, I’m not someone who plays board games often, maybe once per year. But I am a huge fan of games which rely on strategy and memorization, and which have dynamic gameplay. I don’t mean to brag, but that’s why I went undefeated the last time I hopped on the Pokémon Showdown gen 1 random battles ladder.

What I’m trying to say is that in theory Afterschool Dice Club has a good thing going for it — the games. But the issue is that in practice, the games don’t take up as much episode time as I would have liked.

Yes, we get to see the games, and Midori frequently shows off the fact that she knows the rules and strategies behind them, but that’s it. I’m not sure we actually get to see any of these games played start to finish other than a quick card game.

I’m just so much more interested in these games than I am in the girls playing them.

Conclusion

Afterschool Dice Club is a 4/10 from me. It’s not the worst anime, but it’s definitely in “bad anime” territory. The characters are bland and the “plot” is generally boring any time the girls aren’t playing a game — which is far too often.

I also can’t remember either the OP or ED, which means those probably weren’t anything special either. And yes, I watch the OP and ED every single episode, so it’s not like I only watched them each once and then forgot.

Assassins Pride

Assassins Pride

Assassins Pride anime series cover art
Assassins Pride

Overview

Assassins Pride (アサシンズプライド) might have been the only anime I watched in all of 2019 with a grammatically incorrect name. Okay, I’m sure there was at least one other, but Assassins Pride is the one we’re discussing today.

There should be an apostrophe either before or after the final “s” in assassins. The title refers to the pride of either one assassin (Kufa Vampir) or all assassins in general, so there should be a possessive apostrophe. Strike one, Assassins Pride.

But aside from the grammatically incorrect English title, the series actually seems pretty decent at first glance — especially if you watch the OP which I’ll mention more in the conclusion of this review. Nothing about the series would initially suggest that it’s actually a massive train wreck.

Basically we have an all girls school for the children of nobles where they’re instructed on how to use mana and weapons. The nobles of this world is sort of like  samurai or knights. They’re nobles, so they have a higher quality of life, but they’re also expected to be members of the military.

It’s also explained that nobles are the only humans who possess mana. However, mana doesn’t necessarily mean they can use magic as we would generally think of it in most cases. Generally, mana is merely used to enhance one’s physical capabilities.

And, with mana comes a special class which is generally passed down via family lines. For example, Elise is a Paladin, which I believe is the highest tier class. Another class is the Samurai held by Kufa which is deemed to be a lower tier. I’m not entirely sure what the real difference between classes other than fighting style is though.

Characters

Melida Angel is our protagonist, a young girl who’s probably around 13 years of age at most. She comes from one of the most prestigious noble families, but there’s an issue: she hasn’t awakened her mana. And for this reason, it’s suspected that she may not be a legitimate child of the family.

She’s also referred to as the “incompetent talented girl” (not the phrasing I would have chosen) by most adults because they don’t believe she’s worthy of her position in society. The rest of the series mainly focuses of Melida attempting to prove her worth and that she does belong to her noble family.

Melida’s cousin and best friend is Elise Angel, of the aforementioned Paladin class. Although Melida is in the position of becoming head of the family when she grows up, most people believe this should fall to Elise instead. She has the proper mana type, and is highly skilled with a sword — befitting of her noble family.

However, although the adults around her wish for her to be the head of the family, Elise doesn’t want that. She’s more comfortable playing a support role to Melida and doesn’t really see herself as the leader type.

Kufa Vampir from the anime series Assassins Pride
Kufa Vampir

Kufa Vampir is the titular assassin in Assassins Pride, although his class is actually Samurai. He was hired as Melida’s private tutor by her father, however, he also has a secondary mission. If it turns out that Melida has no affinity for mana, he’s supposed to assassinate her.

Also, and this is sort of a spoiler, but there’s something you should know about Kufa. He’s a vampire; or at least part vampire. Apparently a lot of people were shocked by this, but his last name is literally Vampir. What did you expect?

World Building

So, one of the best and worst things about this anime is the world building. And when I’m talking about world building this time, I’m talking about the physical world itself. Sometimes when I discuss world building it’s in reference to how the world “works.”

Right near the beginning of the series, in like episode 1 or 2, it was stated that the world is contained inside a chandelier. This is also shown like once in the series, but is depicted in the OP. The lights of the chandelier are where people live, and everything else is complete darkness.

In fact, hints of it are in just about every scene of the series that take place outside; you can see that the sky is just black.

That’s a fairly unique and interesting premise to mention — and so of course I was curious to learn more about this. Unfortunately, after that offhand comment, this is never brought up again and seemingly plays no role in the series at all from what I understand based on the anime.

So while this chandelier world was the most interesting part of the whole series, we know basically nothing about it. Why is the world located inside a chandelier? Is this connected to mana in some way? Is there anything outside the light, or is it just empty space?

Now, I’ve heard that this anime skips a bunch of volumes from the light novels, and that could be why the world isn’t explained at all. It’s very possible that this world was explained in great depth, but for some reason all of that explanation and possible exploration were skipped.

Conclusion

Overall I’d have to say that Assassins Pride is a 4/10. It definitely had some things going for it, like a potentially interesting world, cute girls, and one of the best OPs of the year (behind Fire Force OP2 and O Maidens in Your Savage Season), but it was still a bad anime.

And speaking of that OP, I’m not going to link to it because they always get taken down from YouTube even when posted on official channels. But I highly recommend you give it a watch. The song is great and the visuals are even better. It really makes the anime look like it’s going to be good.

Didn’t I Say to Make My Abilities Average in the Next Life?!

Didn’t I Say to Make My Abilities Average in the Next Life?!

Didn't I Say to Make My Abilities Average in the Next Life?! anime series cover art
Didn’t I Say to Make My Abilities Average in the Next Life?!

Overview

Didn’t I Say to Make My Abilities Average in the Next Life!? (Watashi, Nouryoku wa Heikinchi de tte Itta yo ne! / 私、能力は平均値でって言ったよね!) is an isekai anime with a female protagonist. Yeah, you don’t really get too many of those (though there is another one in the winter 2020 season).

This time around we have a girl who excels at everything, but doesn’t have many friends because of it, who gets reincarnated into a fantasy world. Upon her reincarnation, she requests that her abilities be completely average this time around so that she can live the normal life she always wanted.

Unfortunately for her, while her abilities are average, they’re the average based on the world as a whole — which isn’t exactly what she meant. This means that while her abilities are right between those of the strongest and weakest beings on the planet, that still puts her own abilities far above those of the “average” person.

In her new (second attempt) life in this fantasy world, she decides to become a mundane adventurer and joins an adventurers school. There she meets three friends, and together they form the adventurers party known as The Crimson Vow upon graduation.

Basically, what all this means is that Didn’t I Say to Make My Abilities Average in the Next Life?! is a fairly standard isekai anime. Our protagonist, Mile is completely overpowered, and this is used to solve any conflict she and her friends may find themselves in.

I get that having overpowered isekai protagonists as a joke is supposedly “in” right now, but there’s really not much of a difference between that and what they’re making fun of.

The Crimson Vow

Mile, formerly Adele von Ascham, formerly Misato Kurihara, is just your normal, average girl who happened to be reincarnated into another world and then forced to create a new persona for herself after revealing her true power. So, yeah, just a normal, average girl.

She also retains her memories from her previous life even though she was reincarnated “from scratch” in this new world. By that I mean she was born as a baby and grew up to her current age. When you think about it like that, it’s a bit weird for her to have her old memories.

As a baby did she have the cognitive ability of a teenager?

Mile in bed

The other three members of The Crimson Vow are Reina, Pauline, and Mavis von Austien. None of these girls are all that interesting in particular, but I guess I’ll go over them anyway.

Reina is the best one of these three simply because she’s the tsundere of the group and the only one equally as small as Mile. She specializes in fire magic and has a dark backstory which I would discuss, but that would count as a spoiler. All you need to know is that she was raised by a traveling group of adventurers.

Pauline is the daughter of a well-off merchant family and is always scheming for ways to make money. She also excels at ice magic, but tends to beat opponents down with her staff instead.

Mavis is from a noble family of knights, and because of this she always wanted to become a knight as well. But since she’s a girl, she was told she’s not allowed to be a knight, and so became an adventurer instead.

Cute Girls Doing Adventurous Things

If you’re into the “cute girls doing cute things” subgenre, or any further derivatives of that, then you might like this series. However, I don’t think it actually does anything that makes it stand out from the crowd.

As far as CGDCT series are concerned, there are many others with cuter girls doing more entertaining things. And if you’re looking for a well written story or characters, you also won’t find that here. The main thing this series has going for it is that it’s a fantasy adventure series.

But, if that’s what you’re interested in, I would really just recommend you watch Endro~! Everything that this series does fine, Endro~! does pretty well. And Endro has better characters, better plot, and better art too.

It’s really a shame though that this series is the one that comes closest to a true fantasy adventure with a female protagonist. Honestly, what else is there? I’m sure there’s an anime I’m missing, but every good fantasy adventure has a male protagonist. And even among the not so good ones, there aren’t that many with female protagonists anyway.

But, maybe that’s partially my fault for thinking an isekai series of all things could be the fantasy adventure I was waiting for. I did think the same thing when Endro~! first came out, and that happened to not live up to those expectations either.

Conclusion

Overall, Didn’t I Say to Make My Abilities Average in the Next Life?! is a 5/10 from me. At the very least Mile can be happy knowing that the score I gave to her anime is completely average. I actually didn’t even notice that until just now.

As for the OP and ED, I don’t actually remember the ED at all, so it probably wasn’t anything special. The OP, however, was just alright. The song was okay, and the visuals weren’t anything special. I do remember the entire song though, so I guess that’s a good sign for the OP, but it was also a bit annoying — very repetitive.

Kandagawa Jet Girls

Kandagawa Jet Girls

Kandagawa Jet Girls anime series cover art
Kandagawa Jet Girls

Overview

Kandagawa Jet Girls (神田川JET GIRLS) is a sports/ecchi anime series which has a game coming out in one week’s time. I’ve watched some gameplay of the game, and I hate to inform you that it looks pretty bad. But we’re not here to discuss the game; we’re here to discuss the anime.

Unfortunately, I also have to inform you that this anime is pretty bad too — as all racing anime are. But, in my search for a good racing anime, I had to watch it. And since there was an uncensored version, that’s obviously the one I watched.

However, the uncensored version of this series didn’t really add anything of value. Almost every episode has a random bath scene, and that’s where the uncensored part comes in. It’s not like there’s any action going on, just a girl sitting in a bath and it’s uncensored.

I really don’t know why those scenes are in this series at all.

If this anime had actually focused on the jet ski races, I think it would have been much better. With that said, the jet ski race portions of the episodes were all CGI that didn’t look quite right — as is often the case. The CGI character movements look stiff and slow.

When your series is about something as fast-paced and potentially exciting as jet ski racing combined with (water) gun warfare, it’s pretty disappointing to see that part of the series handled in that way. And speaking of the water guns in this series, while they look more like real guns in the anime, they look like actual water guns in the game.

Teams

There are six teams featured in the Kandagawa Jet Girls anime, with each team being made up of two primary members: the jetter and the shooter. The teams also have support members, such as mechanics, but I won’t be going over them since we only know about them for the main team.

As their titles imply, the jetter is the one who drives the jet ski, and the shooter is the one who shoots the gun. By shooting certain target spots on opposing jet skis, the shooter can either throw them off balance or completely shut down their unit.

Oddly enough, the way in which these jet ski races work reminded me a lot of another game — Extreme G III, which was the first game I owned for the GameCube back in 2001 or 2002. In fact, I still have that game and it’s still great.

Just to explain it briefly, it’s a futuristic motorcycle racing game in which your supersonic motorcycles are equipped with boost capabilities, shields, and weapons. Really the only difference between that and Kandagawa Jet Girls is that the six, two-person teams don’t ride together on one motorcycle.

Kandagawa Jet Girls

The titular Kandagawa Jet Girls are our main team for the series who we’re forced to root for. Rin Namiki is the daughter of a famous jetter, and has always wanted to become one herself. Misa Aoi is Rin’s shooter, and the younger sister of another famous shooter.

Their jet ski is known as the Orcano and is the oldest model on the field due to the Jet Girl’s lack of funding. But thanks to their mechanic, it’s able to keep up with the rest of the competition.

Dress

Dress (sometimes stylized as DRESS) is basically the main rival team to the Jet Girls. The team is funded by the jetter, Kaguya Shijuuin. Her shooter, Kuromaru Manbu also servers as Kaguya’s maid.

The girls of team Dress are also what the kids would refer to as THICC, especially Kuromaru. This, in turn, translates to their jet ski, Tamakaze, as well. The Tamakaze is one of two jet skis in the series which is designated as being in the heavy weight class.

The six teams in the anime series Kandagawa Jet Girls
Dress, Suiryukai, Hell’s Kitchen, Unkai Surfers, MKHU, and the Kandagawa Jet Girls

Unkai Surfers

The Unkai Surfers are a team made up of foreign exchange students from California, USA. Jennifer Peach is the Jetter and Emily Orange is the Shooter. Both Jennifer and Emily are obsessed with Japanese culture, with their racing outfits based on samurai and ninja respectively. Their jet ski is the Cuisine 2.

MKHU

MKHU are, surprisingly, Japan natives. Based on the way they speak and dress, you might mistake them for “valley girls.” It’s strange how the girls who are actually from California aren’t the valley girl team, but it somehow works for MKHU better than I think it would for the Unkai Surfers.

The jetter for MKHU is Manatsu Shiraishi, while the jetter is Yuzu Midorikawa. They always look like they’re ready to go to the beach, they’re a bit ditsy, and they frequently make sexual innuendos, but they take jet racing very seriously with their Xuiver jet ski.

Hell’s Kitchen

Hell’s Kitchen is my personal favorite team. The jetter and shooter are sisters Tsui and Tina Pan (sometimes spelled Ziyu and Dina Pan), who are also professional pop idols and TV personalities. Their jet ski is the Les Soeurs SL.

If only Hell’s Kitchen was the main team of this series, then it would be a 10.

Tsui and Tina Pan from the anime series Kandagawa Jet Girls

Suiryukai

Suiryukai is the final team featured in the anime and is made up of jetter Fuuka Tamaki and shooter Inori Misuda. Both Fuuka and Inori are shrine maidens, which inspires their team aesthetic. Messie The Hunter is the name of their jet ski.

As a bonus fact, Fuuka’s personality changes wildly when jet racing. She goes from being a rather normal, nice girl to a crazed yakuza member.

Conclusion

For the entire time I was watching this series, I had Kandagawa Jet Girls rated as a 1/10. However, after completing it and thinking it over, I fell like a score of 2/10 is more fitting. Yes, this was a very bad anime, but there was still something about it which I liked.

Aside from the Jet Girls not being the best characters, I actually didn’t think the other teams were that bad. Hell’s Kitchen, Dress, and the Unkai Surfers specifically were all pretty entertaining to watch in their own ways. Hell’s Kitchen are just cute idols, Dress was a pretty good rival team, and the Unkai Surfers were just funny.

I don’t particularly remember the ED other than that it had all the characters naked (but censored) in it, so it probably wasn’t good. The OP is a different story though. The visuals aren’t anything special, but I actually really like the song, “Bullet Mermaid” — I’m listening to it right now.
