Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba

Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba

Overview

Although Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba (Kimetsu no Yaiba / 鬼滅の刃) was one of the better anime of the spring/summer seasons, I wouldn’t say it’s as good as most people would have you think. MAL currently has it rated at 8.94, and in my opinion that’s way too high for this series.

Demon Slayer is currently one of the most popular shounen series, right up there with the likes of My Hero Academia — though I think that one has dropped more recently. After all, especially in the shounen battle series world, whatever’s new is usually the most popular.

The series follows a trio of demon slayers as they travel the land and do what their titles imply, slay demons. However, our protagonist, Tanjirou Kamado, has a unique relationship with the demons — his younger sister is one of them.

While most other demon slayers view the demons as something which must be destroyed at all costs, that isn’t true for Tanjirou. His goal is to one day save his sister and return her to her human form. And if he were to view all demons as inherently evil, then it would mean his sister is incapable of being saved.

But while the story is alright, I’m not really sure if that’s the main draw for anyone. It seems that most people were drawn to the series thanks to the animation done by ufotable (which is the same studio that made Fate/Zero and UBW). And then there’s me, who just likes battle series with abilities I can break down and theorize about.

And while I won’t be getting into any ability discussions here, there’s plenty of that in my weekly episode reviews.

Characters

While I’d like to discuss the supporting characters because they’re actually a lot more interesting and less annoying, I should probably keep to the main cast for this review. If you’ve already seen this series, you might as well just skip down to the next section.

Tanjirou Kamado is a brand new demon slayer whose goal is to defeat the big bad guy of the series: Kibutsuji Muzan. It’s heavily implied, if not outright stated, that Kibutsuji was the one who turned Tanjirou’s sister into a demon, and also slaughtered the rest of their family.

Each demon slayer also has a “breathing technique” they specialize in, with Tanjirou’s being the water breathing technique. I should also mention that despite how these breathing techniques look, they are simply styles of swordsmanship and don’t actually have any elemental properties.

Nezuko Kamado is Tanjirou’s younger sister who was turned into a demon. However, unlike “most” demons, Nezuko still has a sense of self and isn’t merely a bloodthirsty monster. And I put “most” in quotes, because as we’ll see, that’s not actually the case at all.

Zenitsu Agatsuma is Tanjirou’s first companion, aside from Nezuko. He’s terrified of literally everything other than cute girls, and that basically sums up his entire character. 99% of the time Zenitsu is insufferable, and the other 1% of the time, when he uses his lightning breathing technique, he’s the coolest character of the series.

Inosuke Hashibira is the third member of the demon slayer trio and uses the beast breathing technique. Like Zenitsu, he’s also often extremely annoying, but at least he’s not a coward. Inosuke charges into any fight head first while yelling with both of his swords drawn.

Strengths and Weaknesses

What does Demon Slayer do well? The biggest thing is the visuals. I was surprised by the amount of people who had never heard of ufotable before Demon Slayer. Out of any animation studio, they’re just about the only ones who can actually make 3D CGI animation look good. And they’ve been doing it for years.

I’m not going to say this series is a visual masterpiece, but for the scenes that really matter, I’m not sure there’s anything better within this genre.

The other big thing I liked about this series is that it gives us a lot to theorize about: the blade colors, breathing techniques, and blood demon arts are just a few examples. However, this is also tied into one of the things I think the series did poorly, which is world building.

Once we get to the end of the season, the world building does get better, but for most of the season it doesn’t make a lot of sense. We’re given information on a lot of things, but we’re not given a lot of information on any one thing. This leads to an issue where the rules of the world are constantly changing.

Over the 26 episodes I believe the answer to the question, “how are demons created?” is changed about three times. It’s like the author of the series kept revising the world mechanics he previously laid out. And that’s not the only example.

Like I mentioned earlier, the same is true for the idea of Nezuko being the only “sane” demon. In actuality, the vast majority of demons we see in the series retain their sense of self. There’s actually very little about Nezuko that’s special other than the fact that she’s stated to be special.

Conclusion

This assumption isn’t limited to Demon Slayer, but I’ve had people claim that the reason I don’t like the world building in this series is because it goes in a direction contrary to my initial assumption. That’s not the case. I don’t like the world building in Demon Slayer because a new world is built with every episode.

It’s all contradictory, which is a sign of an author who doesn’t have a plan laid out from the start. These changes in the world weren’t made out to be revelations, they were simply stated as fact despite conflicting with prior facts. And no characters reacted to these changes even when they were drastic.

So in the end Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba is a 7/10 from me. It was a good anime, but it had enough problems to keep it from getting into the 8 or above territory — mainly surrounding the main characters being insufferable and the world building being contrarian.

BEM

BEM

BEM anime series cover art
BEM

Overview

BEM (also known as Yokai Ningen Bem / 妖怪人間ベム) is one of those anime which was created for the 50th anniversary of its original anime. It’s just like Devilman: Crybaby, Megalo Box, and Dororo, but those are all actually good. My guess is that this is going to be a continuing trend for some time.

This series was created by Production I.G and LandQ Studios. Production I.G is one of the biggest names in anime, but I don’t actually think they had much to do with this series. If I had to guess, this was mostly the work of LandQ Studios, whose best series clocked in at a 6.49/10 on MAL.

And now that you know that, I think you’ll be more understanding of why I didn’t particularly think this was a good anime.

But don’t misunderstand, the art and animation quality weren’t the only reasons I didn’t find this series to be good. After all, I’ve stated many times that animation quality doesn’t actually matter as much to me as it does to many others. However, having bad art and animation definitely doesn’t help a series — and this series needed help.

It’s a story about three monsters, Bem, Bela, and Belo, who want to become human. They don’t care that becoming human would mean giving up their immortality, they just want to be able to live and die alongside humans. But the big question is, how do they become human?

They have no proof that this will ever work, but they’ve decided that the only way for them to become human is by saving humans. With every human they save, they believe they will be one step closer to becoming humans themselves.

It’s a fairly good premise, but the execution is poor as I’ll discuss later on.

Characters

The only characters who are worthwhile discussing are the three monsters, Bem, Bela, and Belo. There’s also detective Sonia Summers, technically one of the protagonists, but there’s not much to say about her other than she’ll do whatever it takes to disrupt corruption and take down criminals.

So the thing about Bem and his companions is that although they’re monsters, they have human forms. Well, their ears are a bit pointier than the average human’s but aside from that they have human appearances. How exactly they came to look like this is explained later on, so I won’t spoil it.

But when in their monster forms, these three are anything but human. And while I don’t mind their monster forms that much, I do need to point out how bad the transformation animation is. It’s almost Berserk 2016 animation when they change between forms.

Bem and Bela from the anime series BEM (2019)
Bem and Bela

Bem doesn’t seem to try all that hard to blend in with humans when in his human form. He doesn’t have a job or anything. He simply goes around fighting crime. When in his monster form, Bem has an electric ability.

Bela is the one who tries the most to fit in with humans. She’s enrolled in a local high school, attends classes there, and is even popular among her friends. However, she doesn’t believe they can become human quite as much as Bem does. In her monster form she has an ice ability.

Belo is the most jaded of the trio. While he does his part to blend in with humans as an elementary or middle schooler who hangs out with his friends at the local arcade, he has doubts that they’ll ever become human. In his monster form, Belo has an acidic ability.

A Failed Adaptation

BEM isn’t the worst anime around — far from it. It wasn’t even near being the worst anime of the Summer 2019 season. But that doesn’t mean the issues it has are things which can simply be overlooked. For example, the aforementioned human to monster transformations.

I get that not every anime can have the highest quality of animation. But if you have a scene which you’re going to be reusing multiple times throughout the series, you should probably make it look good. It’s just like how OPs often have higher quality animation because they’re used in every episode to introduce the series.

And while I didn’t exactly like the CGI transformations Sailor Moon Crystal used for its first two seasons, at least they made those look pretty considering we saw them in literally every episode. BEM didn’t even do that much.

There’s also the fact that this series was delayed after episode 3, in part due to the arson attack at Kyoto Animation. That’s the official word on why episode 4 was delayed for multiple weeks, but there seems to have been more to it than that — because that alone isn’t a reason I would complain about.

Not only was episode 4 delayed and changed, but episodes 5 and 6 were altered as well. I could understand if one of those episodes had to do with a fire given the circumstances, but this is an episodic series. All 3 episodes wouldn’t have been affected.

I’ve heard that some of the staff were unhappy with the direction of the series which is why it received extra changes. And when something like that happens mid season, it kind of reinforces the idea that this isn’t a very good adaptation. Why was the original direction even approved?

Conclusion

In the end I gave BEM a 4/10. It’s not the worst anime, like I said, but it is a bad anime. And that’s not to say that the original source material is bad, simply that this adaptation of it is. Have you seen BEM? If so, what did you think of this series? Let me know in the comments.

Isekai Cheat Magician

Isekai Cheat Magician

Isekai Cheat Magician anime series cover art
Isekai Cheat Magician

Overview

Isekai Cheat Magician (異世界チート魔術師〈マジシャン〉) is a new isekai anime that’s exactly like all the other standard isekai anime you’ve seen. Before even watching it I already knew it was going to be a 5/10 at best, but as you’ll find out, even that was an overestimate.

Starting off with the studio that made it, Encourage Films is their name. I don’t expect anyone to have heard of them before, because I certainly hadn’t. I’ve also never heard of any of the anime they previously worked on — which there aren’t that many of anyway.

But hey, just because I’ve never heard of a studio or any of their work before doesn’t necessarily mean they aren’t good at what they do. After all, this series has Rie Takahashi voicing one of the main characters and an OP performed by MYTH & ROID (like every other isekai) so it can’t be all bad, right?

Unfortunately, even Rie and MYTH & ROID couldn’t save this series.

But at first glance there’s nothing offensively bad about the series. It seems to be your run of the mill isekai series which happens to have two people from our world instead of one. They learn magic, find out they’re overpowered, save the town, all the things you would expect from this kind of series.

The problems with this series, aside from the fact that it doesn’t exactly do anything different, are many. The plot is painfully generic, the characters are about as interesting as watching paint dry, and the developments within the plot just seem to happen without any real reason behind them.

Dual Magic System

We also learn a bit about the magic system of the world which is always a nice thing. However, we don’t get an in-depth understanding of it. What we know are that there are two kinds of magic: one which relies on the user’s magic and one which relies on the magic of spirits.

These dual magic systems are the only unique thing about the series, but they also aren’t all that interesting because we know so little about them. But because I enjoy breaking down magic systems, let’s do it anyway.

Taichi Nishimura from the anime series Isekai Cheat Magician
Taichi Nishimura

First up we have the standard mages who rely on their own power to cast spells. I don’t know if all the different types of this magic were explained, but we at least know Earth, Wind, Fire, and Water magic exist. There are also other spells we’ve seen which may not fit into any of these categories.

It’s also stated that a person must have an affinity for each magic element in order to use it. Obviously the more affinities a person has, the rarer and stronger they are.

The second type of mage is a summoner who relies on spirits for their source of magic. Summoners must forge pacts with elemental spirits in order to command them — which means they aren’t actually using magic themselves, they’re telling the spirits to.

Again, there are a variety of elements available, but in this case the summoner will have to forge a pact with each spirit whose element they want to use. And again, there are affinities, but it’s unclear if a summoner can forge a pact with a spirit whose element they don’t already have an affinity for.

And while summoners are rarer, they’re more powerful.

Characters

Taichi Nishimura is the male protagonist for this series, which basically means he’s the only protagonist. He’s a summoner who makes a pact with a Wind spirit by the name of Aery — though her name changes towards the end of the season for no apparent reason.

Aside from being able to control a Wind spirit, Taichi also specializes in hand to hand combat. And by that I mean he powers up his physical strength with magic and then punches things until they die — which usually happens after the first punch.

The female protagonist who might as well be a background character is Rin Azuma. Rin is one of the standard mages, but she’s still powerful in her own right. She has a massive amount of mana and is able to use four unique magical elements — often combining two or more. Rin is also voiced by Rie Takahashi.

Myura, Rin, Taichi, and Lemia

Myura is one of Taichi and Rin’s friends in the fantasy world. She’s an elf who’s a powerful swordswoman, not an archer — nice job dodging that trope. Also I don’t actually know what her name is. I’m pretty sure it’s Myura, but a few episodes into the series the Crunchyroll subtitles started calling her “Muller” instead.

I think the Crunchyroll translators just really wanted her name to be in English for some reason even though it’s clearly not.

The fourth and final character I’ll mention is Lemia (or Remia, because Ls and Rs are the same thing as far as the Japanese are concerned). Lemia is a powerful mage who trains both Taichi and Rin. Before their summoning, I believe she was the strongest mage in the kingdom.

Conclusion

Isekai Cheat Magician is a 1/10 if you couldn’t guess that from how this review went. The animation was bad, the plot was boring, the characters were flat (not physically), and the OST was nothing special. The only thing I would say was alright was the magic systems, but as I mentioned, those aren’t fully explored (yet).

Of the two other 1/10s from this season, at least Demon Lord, Retry! had a hilariously bad OST and Arifureta had the best girl of the season, Shea.

Gorgeous Butterfly: Young Nobunaga

Gorgeous Butterfly: Young Nobunaga

Gorgeous Butterfly: Young Nobunaga

Overview

Gorgeous Butterfly: Young Nobunaga (Kochouki: Wakaki Nobunaga / 胡蝶綺 ~若き信長~) is just one of many anime staring Japan’s favorite historical figure — Nobunaga Oda. But despite how many anime feature Nobunaga, this is surprisingly only the second Nobunaga-centric anime I’ve watched.

The first was Nobunaga-sensei’s Young Bride, which is nothing like Gorgeous Butterfly: Young Nobunaga. That was an ecchi series which just happened to use historical figures surrounding Nobunaga Oda for comedic purposes. This is more of a true historical series about Nobunaga during his rise to prominence.

On the animation studio front, Young Nobunaga was made by Studio Deen, who I don’t think really needs any introduction. They’ve made some really good anime and some really bad anime in the past. Luckily, this series wasn’t one they completely destroyed, but it definitely wasn’t one of their better anime.

The second half of the series was pretty good. That’s when Nobunaga is older, maybe in his twenties to thirties, and is leading his armies into battle. The first half, however, was pretty bad. I know that the series is called Young Nobunaga, but I don’t think we really needed as much child and teenage Nobunaga content as we got.

And it didn’t help that the character designs and art direction of this series didn’t give it a very serious feel for most of the series. As you’ll see from the second screenshot in this review, it did get better as Nobunaga got older, but the first half of the anime just didn’t feel like the historical drama it is.

Japan’s Favorite Historical Figure

I’d like to think that you all know who Nobunaga Oda was, but in case you don’t, here’s a crash course on him. Nobunaga was a daimyō (feudal lord) during Japan’s Sengoku period, specifically in the 1500s. During his rule, he had to fight off all sorts of invasions of his land, even by members of his own family.

However, that’s not why Nobunaga is famous. If I had to point to one thing which resulted in Nobunaga’s fame which continues to the present day, it’s how he revolutionized Japanese warfare. And this is something that Young Nobunaga does a pretty good job of illustrating.

During his time, muskets were newly introduced in Japan. And if you know anything about muskets, especially cheap muskets, you’ll know they aren’t exactly the most accurate weapons. This is before rifling existed — the spiral grooves down a gun barrel which make the bullets fly straighter.

But, Nobunaga recognized the potential that muskets had. They were more powerful, had longer range, and most importantly, were more intimidating than bows. There were just three problems: the aforementioned accuracy, the reload time, and the price.

Fortunately for Nobunaga, he found a solution to all three problems — the mass production of cheap muskets. The price was reduced because they were low quality, and the vast number of muskets solved the other two issues.

To solve the issue of reloading, Nobunaga had his men line up in rows with the front man firing a musket, then passing it off to the man behind him. The second man would pass forward a loaded musket and reload the previously fired one. Also, when you’re firing thousands of muskets at once, they don’t need to be accurate.

Characters

Obviously the protagonist of this series is Nobunaga Oda himself. It follows him from childhood all the way into adulthood (I believe into his thirties). Over that course of time, we see how despite being renowned today as an excellent military leader, war was often his last resort.

When he needed to go to war, Nobunaga wasn’t one to shy away from it, even when it meant fighting his family. But at the same time, he always first sought to make peace through other means such as trade deals or arranged marriages.

Nobunaga’s right hand man was Tsuneoki Ikeda. He not only led a portion of Nobunaga’s army into battle, but also served at his side for all important matters of state. Even when everyone else thought that Nobunaga was making rash decisions, Tsuneoki stood by him.

There’s also Nobukatsu Oda, one of Nobunaga’s younger brothers. For the second half of the series Nobukatsu is the major antagonist. Like I’ve mentioned, Nobunaga often had to fight against members of his own family, and this was because of various splits within the family.

First of all there was the main Oda clan and the side branches who were competing for power. Then, even among the main clan there were different factions formed depending on who they believed should become the next head of the clan.

The final character I want to mention is Nobunaga’s wife, Kichou — who also made an appearance in Nobunaga-sensei’s Young bride. Despite originally being married off to Nobunaga by her father as a way to take control of Nobunaga’s territory, Kichou eventually becomes one of his most loyal followers.

Conclusion

I ended up giving Gorgeous Butterfly: Young Nobunaga a 4/10. It’s not a very good anime despite the fact that the second half of the series picks up and becomes much more interesting. And even if the entire series was like the second half, I still think it would only be up to a 6.

The OP and ED for this series were both actually better than the series itself as far as I’m concerned. Neither were really all that great, but they had good songs and pretty decent visuals. You can’t really ask for much more from a 4/10 series.

Cop Craft

Cop Craft

Cop Craft anime series cover art
Cop Craft

Overview

Cop Craft (COP CRAFT [コップクラフト]) is an interesting anime from the summer 2019 season. It’s also made by Millepensee, the animation studio behind the 2016 Berserk adaptation — that will be an important piece of information later on in this review.

The basic premise of the series is what makes it interesting — though I admit it doesn’t sound good. A mysterious gate which leads to another dimension has opened in the ocean and alien visitors have migrated onto Earth. And, of course, they’ve brought inter-dimensional crime with them.

Our protagonists, one a Human and the other a Semanian, work together to fight alien (and earthling) crime across the city. Also the Semanians are able to use magic and stuff, so it’s basically a buddy cop, reverse isekai anime.

But remember, I said that the premise of the series is actually good. It does have many fantasy elements to it, such as the aforementioned magic (known as Mildy), but it’s not a fantasy series. The differences between the Humans and Semanians are really just there to illustrate the fact that these are two distinct cultures.

The humans use technology, value material wealth, and follow a democratic judicial system. Semanians, on the other hand, use magic, live more Spartan-like lifestyles, and have a very black and white sense of justice. Throughout the series we get to see how these two vastly different cultures mix together.

And while there are many who want the Humans and Semanians to intermingle, there are factions who want the opposite. Some Humans want the Semanians to go back to their world, and some Semanians believe their own people have been corrupted by Human values.

Characters

There are really only two characters I want to discuss in this section, and those are our protagonists. This section will be spoiling some information we learn about these characters as the series progresses.

First up we have Kei Matoba, a Human who works as a detective at the city police station. While he’s not racist against the Semanians like others in the city are, he hasn’t had the best experiences with them in the past. In episode one his partner is killed by one, and we later learn that he also fought in the initial war against the Semanians when the gate opened.

Despite all this, Kei doesn’t really care whether someone is a Semanian or not. He cares about bringing criminals to justice and protecting civilians. Other than that, he couldn’t care less whether someone is from this side of the gate or not — though he does make some racist comments.

Tilarna Exedilica ready for battle

Tilarna Exedilica is the more interesting of the two characters because she’s a Semanian. After all, we already know what Humans are like, but with the Semanians there are a lot of unknowns for us to discover.

For example, the Semanian magic system, Mildy, uses life energy known as Latena. They also have special materials they can infuse with Latena to grant special properties. And there’s the Semanian pantheon of gods which are also tied into Mildy somehow.

Through Tilarna, we learn a bit about all of these things and other various aspects of the Semanian culture. We also know that Tilarna is of a fairly high standing among the Semanians. Unfortunately, it’s never revealed exactly how important she is within this season of the anime, and I’m not sure we’ll get a second.

Is Cop Craft Bad?

Now it’s time to loop back around to something I mentioned at the beginning of this review — the fact that Cop Craft is made by Millepensee. I think we all know how bad Berserk 2016 was. Even those who have never seen it have heard the horror stories.

And so you’d expect that Cop Craft would have received the same treatment. But luckily this isn’t the case. Cop Craft usually looks pretty decent. However, I’m not going to sit here and tell you that Cop Craft looks good.

Like I said, it usually looks decent. But the animation quality wasn’t exactly the best. It’s basically a slide show at times, but let’s be honest, I’ll take that over what happened to the Berserk adaptation any day.

And I know there are a lot of anime viewers to whom animation quality is a huge deal. I like when my anime is animated too, I get it. But, animation quality isn’t the most important thing as far as I’m concerned. I’m much more interested in the plot, the world, and the characters.

As far as I’m concerned, Cop Craft did a good job with all those things, so I’m willing to overlook the poor animation it often had to an extent. But if you’re someone who decides how good an anime is based on how many sakugabooru posts it has, I’m sorry to say that Cop Craft has 0 so you probably won’t like it.

Conclusion

With everything I’ve said in mind, I ended up giving Cop Craft a 7/10. That’s definitely a low 7, but a 7 nonetheless. If you’re interested in watching an unconventional crime anime which covers topics surrounding how different cultures mesh together, I’d suggest this series. It’s much better at that then something like GATE is.

And while GATE may have Princess Piña Co Lada, Cop Craft has Tilarna.

As for the OP and ED of this series, I liked them both. The OP was one of my favorites of the season, which is impressive considering all the other great OPs. I think the only OP I actually liked more than this one was for How Heavy are the Dumbbells You Lift? The ED was also good in its own right, but definitely didn’t stand out as much as the OP.
