Series Overview

Ex-Arm (EX-ARMエクスアーム) is the worst anime I’ve ever watched. And just so this is clear, I’ve watched a lot of really bad anime. Every season I purposefully choose to watch at least one anime that looks like it’s going to be absolute garbage — and Ex-Arm is the worst of them all.

Apparently, the manga is actually pretty decent. As you’ll see later on in this review, the majority (not all) of the bad things I have to say about this series are direct results of the adaptation. But, I’m still not really convinced that the source material is that good either.

Here are the basics of the plot: Some kid who hates technology dies in 2014 and has his brain preserved and turned into a computerized weapon in the future. He can then connect to electronic devices and uses this power to fight against terrorists who want to use computerized weapons such as himself.

That explanation is much more simplified than the mess that actually takes place in the series. I watched all 12 episodes, and I couldn’t really give a more detailed explanation of events than that even if I tried.

Basically, what I’m saying is that you shouldn’t watch this anime for the plot. If that’s what you’re interested in, read the manga. It might be better. What you should be watching this series for, if you’re even brave enough to watch it, is the meme.

Ex-Arm really has no redeeming qualities. Consider this: There are 11,350 rated anime on MyAnimeList. Ex-Arm is #11,339. That means there are only 11 anime out of 11,350 that are worse than Ex-Arm, according to the MAL community.

What Went Wrong?

The biggest problem with Ex-Arm is that it was made by people who have never made anime or interacted with the anime community before. The result is a product that looks like it was made by a bunch of amateurs, even if the people working on it were actually professionals.

So, how did this happen? Well, let’s first look at the visuals. There’s a lot of bad CGI. But, not all of the series is CGI. There’s also 2D “animation” mixed in. And by mixed in, I mean that for some reason, some of the characters are poorly animated in 2D in the same shots as the poorly animated 3D characters.

On top of that (literally), the entire anime has a dust effect overlaid on it 90% of the time. It looks like a default effect from a free video editing software. I think they just put it over everything in an attempt to mask how bad everything else looks.

The reason that everything looks so terrible is that the studio that animated Ex-Arm, Visual Flight, has never animated an anime before. And as far as I can tell, it’s not made up of professional animators. It’s made up of people who have worked in live-action movie and TV productions.

But, I have to say that the real reason for Ex-Arm’s failure is the director. Yoshikatsu Kimura has never worked in anime before this. He’s a live-action director. And he claimed that because he was a live-action director, he could make something that looks more realistic than any anime that came before.

Rather than hiring staff who knew literally anything about anime, he chose to surround himself with people he had worked with on live-action projects before. The result is easy for anyone to see. Kimura didn’t make a good anime, he made a joke of himself.

How Bad is it Really?

You might be thinking that I’m exaggerating a bit when I say that Ex-Arm is literally the worst anime I’ve watched. But, unfortunately, I’m not. It really doesn’t have any redeeming qualities aside from the fact that it’s occasionally, so bad that it’s funny.

However, if you’re looking for an anime that’s so bad that it’s funny, I would highly recommend watching the English dub of Garzey’s Wing over Ex-Arm. For starters, Garzey’s Wing is just a lot funnier than Ex-Arm is. It’s funny throughout, rather than just having a few so-stupid-they’re-funny moments sprinkled it.

But, I think an even more compelling reason to watch something like Garzey’s Wing over Ex-Arm if you want to watch a bad anime is that Garzey’s Wing is only 3 episodes, not 12. If you only watch a few episodes of Ex-Arm, it might be funny. But watching 12 episodes that are that bad isn’t funny anymore.

If you’re still not convinced of how bad Ex-Arm is, allow me to exhibit one of the most damning pieces of evidence against it: The fact that it’s a Crunchyroll original. Now, being a Crunchyroll original doesn’t automatically make an anime bad. That’s not what I’m saying.

But, if you’ve ever used Crunchyroll, you’ll know that they love to promote their original anime all over. They have banners and other ads on their site for their originals and they promote their originals elsewhere online, such as Twitter.

Despite all of that, I guarantee that you never saw Crunchyroll promote Ex-Arm, at least not after the first episode aired. That’s right, Ex-Arm is so bad that Crunchyroll doesn’t even want to promote it despite financing, licensing, and producing it.

I haven’t checked to see if Kimura has said anything about Ex-Arm since its release. But I have a feeling that nobody who was involved with it wants to acknowledge it anymore.

Conclusion

Unsurprisingly, Ex-Arm gets a 1/10 from me. I really don’t think there’s anything more I need to say about the series at this point. The only reason you should watch it is if you’re really into bad anime and you want to just for the meme. Otherwise, it’s not worth your time.

Mitsudomoe

Mitsudomoe

Mitsudomoe

Series Overview

Mitsudomoe (みつどもえ) is a slice of life comedy series about the Marui sisters, triplets who terrorize their 6th-grade teacher (and classmates) with their antics. Comedy is one of the more subjective genres, and with Mitsudomoe, I think that’s especially important to keep in mind.

The comedy in this series definitely isn’t for everyone. For the first three or so episodes, it wasn’t for me. But I will say that if you manage to get beyond the beginning of the series, it does get better. How much better, I’ll leave for you to decide.

At the start of the series, there are quite a few bodily fluid gags — which isn’t something I’m a fan of. I’m very glad that the entire series wasn’t like that. However, the entire series is full of boob, underwear, and other mild sex jokes.

This is why I say that Mitsudomoe really isn’t for everyone. Generally speaking, I don’t think a series all about that is very interesting. But I will admit that some of the jokes involving that content are funny. For me, however, it was all the other jokes that really made the series enjoyable.

Yes, I do think that overall, Mitsudomoe is an enjoyable watch. Does every joke land? No. But the ones that do are great. And, for the most part, I think the best jokes in the series are the ones that are the most absurd.

There are so many jokes and gags that probably wouldn’t ever happen in real life in this series. However, they’re just on the border of what’s feasible. But then there are some jokes that build on pre-established ideas and take them way beyond what you expect. Those are the funny ones.

Main Characters

Yabe “Yabecchi” Satoshi is the homeroom teacher of the Marui triplets. He’s a new teacher who’s basically been thrown to the wolves by being placed in charge of the three troublemakers of the grade (or the entire school).

Before I get into the Marui sisters individually, I’d like to point out that their names are Mitsuba, Futaba, and Hitoha. Their names reference the numbers 3, 2, and 1 respectively. However, they don’t relate to those numbers in the way you would expect.

Normally you’d think that the eldest sister would have the number 1. But in this case, the eldest is 3. Is this actually important? No. But other characters do sometimes refer to the sisters by the number of their birth order, which makes it even more confusing.

Mitsuba is the eldest Marui sister. She’s sadistic and wants everyone else to be her slaves. Aside from the sadism thing, she’s probably the most normal of the three. She’s also concerned with her weight but doesn’t seem to be successful in reducing it.

Futaba is, in my opinion, a much better character than Mitsuba. She’s extremely athletic and displays superhuman strength on numerous occasions. But, she’s very simple-minded and has an obsession with boobs. She can apparently tell sizes by sight alone.

Hitoha is my favorite of the three. Originally, I didn’t like her because her character started off as just being the gloomy and anti-social one of the three. However, she gets the most development throughout the series, and I think I can safely say that I like her more than Futaba.

A lot of the gags featuring Hitoha, especially after the start of the series, have to do with her attempting to come out of her shell and having it backfire. Usually, this takes the form of her having conversations with people who think she’s talking about something entirely different.

Best and Worst Parts

For this section, I’m going to spoil some of my favorite and least favorite gags and jokes of the series. For my favorites, I’ll choose one that focuses on each of the Marui sisters. Let’s start off with my least favorites, though.

I believe it was in the first two episodes that my least favorite gags are found. One of them involves copious amounts of urine getting everywhere thanks to the clumsiness of the school nurse. I don’t think I need to explain why I don’t enjoy urine gags.

The other worst gag involves copious amounts of… snot. As I mentioned at the start of this review, I’m not about bodily fluid gags. I just think it’s gross, not funny. Unlike the urine one that focused on all three girls, this one just focused on Futaba.

It’s actually hard for me to pick my favorite Hitoha joke. But I think I’m going to go with Hitoha just being in Yabe’s apartment unnoticed all day on the weekend. The comedic timing of that skit was extremely good with Hitoha revealing she’d actually been there all day after Yabe lies and says he always notices her.

For Futaba, it’s much easier for me to pick a favorite gag. She wants her father to practice for the sports festival with her ahead of time, but he’s on the other side of the school gate. So she takes his hand and proceeds to smash his head into the gate while trying to pull him through. A simple gag, but a funny one.

Lastly, my favorite Mitsuba gag is when she finally comes face to face with someone who does want to be her slave — the mother of her class rival, Sugisaki. Mitsuba’s reaction to a grown woman wanting to be dominated by her was priceless.

Conclusion

If it weren’t for the first three episodes of the series, I’d probably give it a 7, which I’m actually a bit surprised by. But, because those first episodes were a real struggle to get through, I have to give Mitsudomoe a 6/10 overall.

Despite definitely not being for everyone, including myself at times, I do think it was a funny comedy. With that said, I would never recommend this comedy to someone out of the blue. I’m not about to start going around shilling this series to people.

I guess before I wrap this up I should also comment on the OP and ED. The ED isn’t anything special. But the OP definitely grew on me over the course of the series (I generally don’t skip them). The visuals are okay, but the song is pretty good if you pay attention to the lyrics.

Dr. Stone: Stone Wars

Dr. Stone: Stone Wars

Dr. Stone: Stone Wars anime series cover art
Dr. Stone: Stone Wars

Season Overview

Dr. Stone: Stone Wars (ドクターストーン STONE WARS) is the second season of the Dr. Stone anime series. Compared to the 24 episodes of the first season, this season is considerably shorter, at only 11 episodes. But, I don’t think that’s a bad thing.

Spoilers Incoming

The Stone Wars season covers the “war” between Senku’s Kingdom of Science and the Tsukasa Empire, lead by Tsukasa, of course. The only thing is, it’s not really much of a war. It’s a single attack by the Kingdom of Science on the Tsukasa Empire that lasts about 1 episode.

You may recall from the first season that Senku’s plan for defeating the Tsukasa Empire is to use information warfare. If Senku can create a radio with which to contact Taiju and Yuzuriha, he can outmaneuver Tsukasa’s forces and win the war without bloodshed.

That’s what this second season is all about. The entire season focuses on the construction of a two-way radio, sneaking one of the radios into the Tsukasa Empire, and then using it to bring Tsukasa’s allies over to Senku’s side.

This season also features some new characters who I wasn’t all that impressed with. To be fair, I don’t really care about any of the cast. But the newer characters in particular felt a bit out of place.

For example, Tsukasa’s trying to create the ultimate army of useful people, and one of them is just a fangirl of a singer. Maybe there was something else to her character, but I honestly can’t remember what. And another guy was just a former prison guard with nothing special about him. Yet, these are some of Tsukasa’s elite forces.

The Same, But Slightly Worse

The reason I think it’s good that the second season of Dr. Stone is less than half the length of the first season is that it’s basically the same thing, but slightly worse. One of the biggest problems is that Stone Wars is very linear, as I alluded to in the previous section.

In the first season, there are a lot of detours along the way to Senku’s relatively minor goal of taking down Tsukasa. Things go wrong, and Senku is forced to adapt and go down a different path temporarily. But, these detours still end in inventions that will further Senku’s ultimate goal of reintroducing modern technology to the stone world.

This type of storytelling framework was good because it kept the story progressing while also not falling into a predictable rhythm. The second season basically throws that away in favor of a direct route to the minor goal.

Unfortunately, the linear nature of this season is also what leads to the second issue. Despite the fact that a lot of the science in Dr. Stone is dumbed-down, or flat out wrong, I will admit that Senku using this “science” to invent things was probably the most entertaining part.

But there’s not much of that in the second season. Senku still does invent some things, like paper armor, but nothing exciting. You could argue that the radio he makes is exciting, but the explanation is so simple that it’s not satisfying.

To be fair, my expectations for this series are probably too high. It’s just a generic shounen series. It was never going to have a great story, characters, or complex topics. So in that regard, I guess Dr. Stone is exactly what it’s supposed to be — easily digestible entertainment you can put on and not pay much attention to.

The Ultimate Twist

Something that a lot of these anime with “extremely smart” characters do is that they pull really stupid plot twists out of thin air and pretend like the protagonist, or whoever the smart character is, figured it all out. This is a major complaint I have with Death Note, for example.

Dr. Stone has its own version of this trope, and it was just as bad as any other, if not worse. Without any lead-in, it was randomly revealed that the reason Tsukasa is doing everything he’s doing is that he wants to save his younger sister who’s never been mentioned before.

When this is revealed, the viewer is supposed to be surprised by Senku’s genius. After all, he was able to figure out Tsukasa’s true motivation when nobody else could! But there’s one problem. No matter how smart Senku is, this isn’t something he could ever figure out with the information at his disposal.

The Kingdom of Science launching their attack

There’s absolutely no evidence to support Senku’s claim. I don’t remember the exact “evidence” he gives since this was weeks ago and Dr. Stone isn’t important enough for me to remember all the details.

But basically, his evidence was that Tsukasa is a “protector.” So, therefore, he must have been wanting to protect someone important to him, such as a younger sibling. And why does his younger sibling need protecting? Because she’s been in a coma for (thousands of) years.

You can’t get from “Tsukasa is actually a nice guy who protected me when we first met” to “Tsukasa has a younger sister he’s never mentioned who’s in a coma and he murders people in order to save her.” There’s very obviously a huge gap in that logic.

Conclusion

Although I do think that Dr. Stone: Stone Wars is worse than the first season of Dr. Stone, I’ve ended up giving it the same score: 5/10. It’s worse, but I still think it’s “average,” not “bad.” I dislike it, but that alone doesn’t make something bad.

What I will say is actually bad, though, is the OP for this season. The Stone Wars OP is very bad. The song doesn’t really match the visuals, and the visuals are garbage. I’m sorry if you like the OP, but it’s just not good.

Azur Lane: Slow Ahead!

Azur Lane: Slow Ahead!

Azur Lane: Slow Ahead! anime series cover art
Azur Lane: Slow Ahead!

Series Overview

Azur Lane: Slow Ahead! (Azur Lane: Bisoku Zenshin! / アズールレーン びそくぜんしんっ!) is a slice of life series made up of 12 8-minute episodes and is, obviously, based on the Azur Lane mobile game. I’ve previously reviewed the full-length Azur Lane anime, so this review is going to reference that a few times.

Slow Ahead! follows the four main Azur Lane girls, Ayanami, Javelin, Laffey, and Z23 just like the full-length series did. Well, kind of. I think Z23 was in the full series. But I actually don’t remember her and I never even mentioned her in my review of it.

The big difference between the full series and this short series is that the short series has no plot or action. It’s purely slice of life fan service. There’s some ecchi fan service, especially in the first episode or two. But after that, it’s basically just cute girls doing cute things.

Now, I’m not an Azur Lane fan. By that, I mean that I’ve never played the game and I have no interest in starting it. So to someone like me, the slice of life content in this series isn’t all that interesting. I don’t have a pre-existing connection with any of these characters beyond watching the full series.

If you’re not already a fan of the series, I wouldn’t really recommend watching Slow Ahead! Some people who aren’t fans of the series still enjoy it, though. If you’re really into cute girls doing cute things, you might.

But, just be warned that this series is exactly what it looks like. There’s no surprise waiting for you within it. It’s just some boat girls talking to their friends at boat girl school — yes, it’s apparently set in a school.

A Different Side of Some Characters

If, like me, your only exposure to the Azur Lane franchise before this short series was the full-length anime, some of the characters may seem a bit different. Z23 is probably the most different simply because she’s a main character this time instead of a background character.

Laffey’s character isn’t different at all between the two anime. She’s the sleepy loli in both. There’s not really much to her character than that. She sometimes takes a leadership-ish role in the main series, but I think that has more to do with there being a plot.

Javelin, to me at least, seems a lot less confident in Slow Ahead! Maybe this isn’t actually the case, but the change in setting seems to have affected her character. The school setting in Slow Ahead! means she’s being put into more social situations, and she doesn’t appear to be the best at those.

Ayanami has changed drastically between the two series. It’s almost like she’s an entirely different character. I don’t know which Ayanami is the real one (the one in the game), but my guess is that the Slow Ahead! one is the closer of the two.

In the full series, Ayanami was kind of a loner, which she still is to an extent. But the big thing about her character in that series is that she was one of the only boat girls on her side of the war to see her enemies as similar to her. She helped lead the change that resulted in peace.

In Slow Ahead!, Ayanami is a NEET gamer girl. She’s still my favorite of the main characters as she was in the full series. But if you had told me that this is what Ayanami is actually like after I finished the full series, I wouldn’t have believed you.

What Do Azur Lane Fans Think?

Now, here’s where we get to the crazy part of this review. Right before I started writing this, I saw some reviews of the series by Azur Lane fans. And let me tell you, there were some hot takes in these reviews.

Obviously, not every Azur Lane fan is going to agree with some of these opinions of theirs that I’m about to share. But at the same time, maybe I’m just the one who doesn’t understand the true appeal of Azur Lane to the people who play it.

The first thing I saw was that they consider Slow Ahead! to be the real Azur Lane anime adaptation — they hate the other one. I get that the plot wasn’t really that good and that it was obviously based on a gacha game. But it looked nice and had some interesting parts.

Where things start to go off the deep end is when they say things like the plot and action in the other series were needless. Apparently, just seeing cute boat girls doing cute things is all they want. Isn’t the plot and action a key component of the mobile game even if the plot wasn’t the same?

But, the most baffling thing to me is that people seem to like Slow Ahead! more because it has “more consistent animation.” Do you know why Slow Ahead! has more consistent animation? Because its animation is just average.

The main series doesn’t have bad animation. It just sometimes has insane animation that makes the average animation look worse than it really is. Having great animation for important scenes shouldn’t be something to complain about.

Conclusion

To me, Azur Lane: Slow Ahead! is a 5/10. It doesn’t do anything particularly well, but it also doesn’t do anything particularly poorly. And since the episodes are only 8 minutes each, there isn’t enough time for them to have real plots.

Attack on Titan: The Final Season

Attack on Titan: The Final Season

Attack on Titan: The Final Season anime series cover art
Attack on Titan: The Final Season

Season Overview

Attack on Titan: The Final Season (Shingeki no Kyojin: The Final Season / 進撃の巨人 The Final Season) is, surprisingly, not the final season of the Attack on Titan anime series. I’ll explain that later on in this review, but just know this is the fourth season.

So, what does this season cover? Well, for starters, there’s a four-year time skip between the end of Season 3 Part 2 and the start of this season. It then begins with the Marley arc before moving into the War for Paradis arc.

Now, one of the best and worst things about this season of the series is that the majority of the main characters have new character designs. That’s great because they all look fantastic (except Mikasa, honestly). But, this also causes some issues.

The primary issue with these new designs is that the two arcs this season cover also introduce a lot of new characters. So for the first few episodes, it can be difficult to tell who’s who. Specifically, I know a lot of people got Armin and Yelena mixed up.

I should also point out that this isn’t just an issue in the anime. I read the manga before this season aired, and it was difficult to differentiate between characters in that at first too.

Another thing to keep in mind about this season is that it does have a significant tonal shift from what came before. That’s nothing new for this series though. Each season of the anime does this. But, I think this season is the most different from the earlier seasons because both the story and characters change drastically.

I’m not sure if this season is my favorite from a story perspective. However, I think the characters in this season are the best they’ve ever been.

Source Material vs. Anime Execution

I don’t really want to get into the debate surrounding whether the anime or manga is better. Normally, I prefer anime adaptations rather than manga. But with Attack on Titan, I think both mediums have their pros and cons.

I think that some of the use of CGI wasn’t the best at the start of the season, but it gets phased out later on. The real issue I had with the anime visuals actually came from a really strange use of rotoscoping for some scenes that didn’t need to be dynamic.

And so, this brings us into what I actually want to discuss in this section, which is how the anime makes use of the source material. I don’t think I’m alone when I say that it’s the source material that really carries this series, especially later on.

Questionable use of rotoscoping aside, I think the anime adapted the content it covered in this season quite well. I was a little disappointed in the adaptation of the War Hammer Titan. But at the same time, I’m not really sure what they could have done to improve it because it was just like the manga.

My biggest issue with the anime is actually a relatively minor detail. If you read my weekly episode reviews, you may recall that I complained about the color of Eren’s eyes being green — especially when they glow green due to his control over the Founding Titan.

Yes, I know that Eren’s eyes have normally been green. And yes, I know the manga is in black and white. However, the manga covers are in full color. And in the manga covers, we see Eren with silver eyes to represent the Founding Titan just as we’ve seen with all the other Founding Titan wielders.

I think the silver eyes look way better and more intimidating than the alien, glowing green ones. Check out the alternate cover for Volume 30 to see what I mean.

What Comes Next?

I touched on this a bit in my review of the final episode of this season, but there’s a lot of confusion surrounding the future of this series — mostly from the anime-only community. Luckily, it’s not really that difficult to understand once you have all the information.

First of all, these 16 episodes of this season covered chapters 91 – 115, so 25 chapters. The final chapter, 139, comes out in just a few days as of the posting of this review. So, there are another 24 chapters that still need to be adapted.

Because the next part of the season (this is why I said this isn’t really the final season) was only revealed as “episode 76,” people are assuming that we’re only getting one more episode. That makes absolutely no sense.

Now, while we don’t actually know how the rest of the series is going to be adapted, there are two ways that make sense. Either we’re going to have another roughly 16 episode season, or we’re going to have an 8 – 10 episode season followed by a movie.

As I said, we don’t know for sure what’s going to happen. However, I think the shorter season followed by a movie makes a lot of sense within the context of this “final” season.

So, what is that context? Well, you may recall that this season was actually delayed by two months and therefore didn’t begin airing until December 7th. Two months is the same as 8 episodes, so we can assume that this season was originally supposed to have an additional 8 episodes.

My guess is that this second part of the season will be those 8, 9, or 10 episodes that had to be delayed. And if we consider those, then a movie would be the perfect length to finish out the final few chapters of the manga. Also, the end of the manga is like 100% action, so it would work well as a movie.

Conclusion

Attack on Titan: The Final Season definitely isn’t my favorite season of the anime despite covering some of my favorite content. I’d have to give it an 8/10, which places it squarely in the middle of the series as far as I’m concerned.
