Quentyn Connington - The Last Griffin
Discord Name: Underoos#1904 (Stewart)
Name and House: Quentyn Connington
Cultural Group: Stormlander (Andal)
Appearance: Quentyn is of average height, standing around six feet but stood taller than most boys his age for quite a while when he was younger. He is broad and thick, filling out his frame with a solider’s build made for the tournament fields. He has the fair white skin of an Andal, and the flame shaded hair of the Connington line that flows long and wavy around his face, a face with well-kept beard shaved close to the skin. He has a charming smile and a determined gaze, fit for staring down his opponents in friendly challenges.
Skill(s): Swords (o), Bulwark, Riding, Lances (o)
Talent(s): Woodcarving, Ambidextrous, Trotting
Negative Trait: N/A
Starting Title(s): Lord of Griffin’s Roost and Master of Games
Starting Location: King’s Landing, The Crownlands
Alternate Characters: N/A
Quentyn Connington was born to Jon Connington and Alysanne Errol in 344 AC. Born the second son and the baby of the family, Quentyn had ample time to spend on the sport and entertainment. He was a gifted duelist, and could take near anyone his age in one on one combat before he reached his full height. It was commonplace to find Quentyn bother his siblings, especially Cassandra, the black sheep of the family, to sword fights day and night.
Eventually, Jon transformed Quentyn’s passion for sport into a political opportunity, and Lyonel Baratheon found himself a new squire. For many years, Quentyn watched the Storm of Spring clash against many friends and foes alike. Lyonel taught Quentyn the true art of the sword, so perhaps Jon’s political opportunity was sharper than he’d anticipated.
Lyonel knighted Quentyn on his eighteenth nameday in 362, and while he was kneeling, Quentyn had winked at Marya Dondarrion, the woman he would marry a few months later. The two of them had their first child, Tyana Connington, one year later, but Quentyn quickly left in fear of losing the adventurous years of his youth to the burden of childcare. His following year not only enriched his fighting capability - specifically his defensive capabilities in the melee and his riding capabilities in the joust - but also gave him a bastard son in the form of Jon Storm, after spending a passionate night of celebration with a woman named Mylenda.
This pattern would once again occur during the birth of his twins Simon and Selwyn Connington, and would end with the birth of his second bastard, Joy Storm, by a woman named Ravella. In the three years that followed his childrens’ births, Quentyn decided to focus on family by lying about his bastards’ existence and following the faith as closely as he could with his devout wife. The Seven would gift him with two wars and the death of his father and older brother Monfryd in 379 AC, haunting Quentyn with visions of death, and guilting him into bringing his bastards into the house in fear that the gods were angry with him.

Should You Watch It? Spring 2020 Edition
(The following anime have their perspectives based on only two episodes rather than the typical three: Fugou Keiji)
Banjo’s PerspectiveMust Watch It
On the cusp of revolutionary change within the automobile landscape, an insane cross-country race becomes the centerpiece for those willing to test their driving mettle. Appare, an engineering savant focused on making the impossible possible, enters the competition if for nothing else than to prove his unwavering conviction. Alongside his samurai buddy Kosame and their newfound native friend Hototo, this bizarre trio shift Appare-Ranman! into turbo mode from the starting line.
The anime has been almost strictly setup thus far, but what it has provided has been downright great. An intriguing premise, a historical setting, and some neat crossovers have established a strong beginning for the narrative overall. Likewise, main and supporting characters not only present fun personalities to follow but also swell interactions that vary up their connections and interpersonal goals. And thematically, the story and the cast combine to challenge those preconceived notions and the important motivations that drive people forward.
Whether the show will stretch itself too thin with the large cast remains to be seen, and Appare himself could end up a squandered opportunity if he is not tested enough during this trek. Until then, the colorful designs, the excellent audio direction, and the nice balance of comedy and drama, joined with everything else already stated, keeps it running as smooth as can be.
Another Perspective, courtesy of Almondjoy247:Consider It
“The story follows a mad scientist / engineer (Appare) and a swordsman (Kosame) who become stranded in good ol’ Japanese speaking California after their steamboat breaks down in the middle of the ocean. In order to earn enough money to travel back to Japan, they have to build a car to enter a trans-America race. Hilarity ensues from wacky, trope filled characters and creative character design.
Appare-Ranman!’s biggest flaw is that the world, premise and character design (that I love) dictate that this show should be lighthearted and fun. So far however, the show has started off in a too serious tone, with a focus on the characters. Appare himself is a self centered asshole with the only redeemable trait being his eccentric gadget building. That apparently necessitates the audience liking him.
I’m really torn. I want to like the show. The premise of Wacky Races with a side of Steel Ball Run and Dr. Stone sounds like a home run but so far the only reason I’m continuing to watch it is because of the promise of races to come. If the ending of episode 3 is anything to judge by, my critiques are null and void, but so far I have had more fun picking apart the show watching it with my friends than actually watching it.”
Banjo’s PerspectiveConsider It
The Renaissance was a time filled with crazy discoveries and wild chances. However, its focus on art and the arts has remained the most memorable. Arte (the girl) wishes to pursue her own dreams within this artistic space, and so Arte (the anime) tells the tale of her journey from sheltered noble to fledgling journeyman (and beyond).
Arte herself is a likable character whose optimism and willpower within the situation musters forth a smile. Unfortunately, many cracks in the canvass creep into the foreground. While its themes on female empowerment are nice to see and accurate to the era, the show leans really heavily into these elements. Too much so. To the point that they become less of a notable positive and more of an awkward negative, each fallback to “She’s a woman!” this and “Not for a lady!” that bringing with it extra eyerolls as subtlety vacates the area.
Unimpressive artistry and weak storybeats continue to blemish the work, but not all hope is lost. The prospect of interesting supporting characters may signal better interconnections among the characters, and those ham-fisted themes may level off as Arte’s journey progresses. Meaning, the show may just get its own Renaissance, too.
Another Perspective, courtesy of FelixisSparky:Watch It
“Arte is a noble girl in 16th Century Florence, during the Italian Renaissance. Arte loves art, and so did her father, but with his death, Arte’s mother is more preoccupied with saving their family from financial collapse than obeying his wishes for their daughter. Solution: Marry her off to a wealthy family! Arte is naturally not pleased with the situation, and runs off to become an apprentice in a workshop and pursue art as a career, though she’ll have to overcome societal norms and patronization every step of the way.
You’ll either love Arte or hate it, there’s no middle ground. It’s a slow burn, with a female lead, with a main character starting off with nothing but a passion for art and the knowledge that if she fails, it’s all over. We know as little about her world as she does, helping immerse us in it. Most of the characters seem like actual people with personalities, except one minor character I will not name…
If you’re a fan of shows like Eizouken and Bookworm, you’ll love Arte. On the other hand, if you watch anime for epic battles, clever mind games, or plot, you’re in the wrong place. This is a character drama.
On that note, I’ll see you in the next weekly episode discussion, where we desperately hope there won’t be a romance sub-plot.”
Banjo’s PerspectiveWatch It
Humans now coexist with beastmen, anthropomorphic animals who can choose to look like humans at will. At least, they should be coexisting, but brewing animosity has forced the beastmen to live away in a secluded city called (aptly enough) Anima City. Michiru wishes to get there and live a “normal” life, but not everything goes according to plan, letting Brand New Animal (or BNA for short) claw ahead.
The makings of an awesome project exist throughout much of the anime. Nifty animated sequences showcase cool action and floaty comedic moments. Its themes on racism and a survival-of-the-fittest mentality represent important topics for discussion. And the underlying mystery which backs the storyline paves the way for a plot that appears primed for crazy reveals and creative scenarios. All well and good.
Truth be told, a bland lighting scheme doesn’t do the visuals any favors despite the dual designs going on. Moreover, the characters lack a strong foundation, leaving their presence and their impact within the anime in dire need of better writing sooner rather than later. Despite these noted shortcomings, the earlier praising stands on all fours still, branding it as an above-average offering this season.
Another Perspective, courtesy of hpanandikar:Watch It
“After centuries of persecution and hiding, beastmen have made Anima City their utopia. Michiru Kagemori, formerly human, now tanuki beastman, seeks refuge from hunters but soon discovers that all is not well in Anima City. She teams up with Shirou Ogami, a wolf beastman and all-round badass to investigate the city’s problems and find a cure for her own mysterious transformation. Michiru appears to be something heretofore unseen, a brand new animal if you will ... roll credits.
This newest offering by Trigger is action packed and unafraid to show the darker, more bestial side of this world. It spends the first few episodes building up the characters and setting the table for the main plot. You can look forward to a unique animation style with beautiful color palettes and a fluid character design that is Trigger’s signature. The OP is one of the best of the season with extra payoff for sharp viewers. The soundtrack is fantastic and is rounded out by an excellent ED by electropop musician AAAMYYY.
Some might find the MC annoying at first but I found her an engaging character with a great VA. The core plot also needs some time to get going. The only thing preventing me from giving it a ‘must watch’ is lack of easy availability due to Netflix’s release schedule.”
Banjo’s PerspectiveDrop It
People on the frontlines of police work and detective jobs deal with danger daily. Haru Katou understands this sentiment, but he faces his tasks with fairness and with respect regardless. One day, a man by the name of Daisuke Kanbe joins the field, but, instead of worrying about the “right” way to handle things, he uses his seemingly (or maybe literally) unlimited amount of money to solve their predicaments. Thus, Fugou Keiji: Balance:Unlimited rises in stock – only to quickly plummet.
To its credit, the anime has a clean art style that has helped with the realism of the setting. Otherwise, the rest of its checks bounce. The cast is largely forgettable or uninspiring, and the narrative has failed to instill a firm hook from the get-go.
Most egregious of all, however, is the very crux of the show. Going against (to some extent) the platitude “money cannot buy happiness” should act as an intriguing reversal, but there hasn’t been any exploration of this attitude. Rather, it comes off as infuriating, arrogant, and even mean with how the scenes play out.
That’s more than likely intended, preparing for a pivotal re-reversal later. But that’s then; this is now. That is to say, the anime sadly creates next to zero entertainment and instead files for bankruptcy.
Another Perspective, courtesy of UnraveledReality:Must Watch It
“Money is power, and with enough money all your problems can go away as well as the problems of others. At least that is how Daisuke Kanbe seems to view the world as he seemingly recklessly does things in the way that he sees fit and spends the money to accomplish his goal. This causes conflict between he and his partner Haru, as he does not like the power of money and strives to fight crime legitimacy and in his eyes, ‘morally’.
Daisuke falls somewhere in the realm of Bruce Wayne with his fortune and James Bond with his lifestyle and an opening to match of beautiful women, expensive cars, and spy-eqsue depictions shadowing what may be to come. The costs incurred in the two episodes for Daisuke so far has been Ұ84.4B, a point signifying just how ‘unlimited’ his resources really are, and I am eager to see how high it goes by the end of the series.
Honestly it is hard to tell if a meaningful story will come from this show, especially from two episodes of an 11-episode series, but one thing is for sure that it will be fun and something refreshing to enjoy from beginning to end even if it may be forgettable when all is said and done.”
Banjo’s PerspectiveConsider It
Kaede is a normal woman who lives a gyaru lifestyle. Like any other day, she wakes up to get ready for work. But, in nonchalant fashion, she sees a harmless blue dinosaur has become her roommate. With no other setup or explanations required, Gal to Kyouryuu begins.
Although “begins” is perhaps the incorrect phrasing; it would be better to say “does what it wants”. The first half of the anime is a mixture of incorporations. Lighthearted slice-of-life segments related to Kaede. Interstitial “YouTube videos” which feature Dino. Silly comedic exchanges shared by the two. Furthermore, the art style ranges from its typical almost-Western cartoony look to soft Claymation to creative in-between frames when loading the next part.
Believe it or not, the second half of the anime is even more out there. In fact, it’s so out there it probably cannot be defined as “anime” any longer because it simply isn’t. So, the project coalesces into a ludicrous amalgamation that does what it wants and has to be seen to be believed.
Yet, this wackiness is fun. Weird, sure, but fun. Kaede is inherently a good person. Dino is a straightforward “character”. The lightsaber and airhorn sound-effects are hilarious. In short, this gal and this dinosaur form a formidable duo.
Another Perspective, courtesy of higi1024:Watch It
“As a snobby source readerTM, I was not expecting anything exceptional from this. Considering that the manga was rather short form (8 pages/chapter), I expected an unremarkable (but fun!) short around 5 minutes long. Finding out that these were full length episodes piqued my interest and I got much more than I bargained for.
While the show is indeed keeping true to the short fun stories of the manga, it is also going beyond to introduce a new dimension (in more ways than one) to the story, essentially turning this into an anime-original work. The manga-original stories are cute as intended and can be watched as a respectable stand-alone show, but the secondary plot is where the real meat of the series is building up. It blends together meme-ery and a progressive plot that’ll keep you wanting more.
Now as somebody who was not a fan of pop team epic, I only realized afterwards that this show was being directed by the same gentleman. I will say that there are certain meme elements (especially sound effects) that are used, but it is not at the same levels of “random skits and jokes” as pop team epic
All in all, good combination of cute show with an intriguing plot. Come for the cute dino, stay for the airhorn.”

Golden coins. Vending machines. Monstrous transformations. Shuiichi Kagaya is a normal dude who finds himself (for better or for worse) involved with these details against his knowledge. Claire, a fellow student and resident maniac, has said knowledge. With nobody else to turn to, Shuiichi teams up with Claire for their Gleipnir adventure, melding into a pitiful project.
Pretty much everything in the show is a wash. It pins itself as an “ecchi” series, but such content has been uncreative and repetitive in nature. The main monster design is way too goofy to take seriously. The key force behind the plot is similarly ridiculous and sigh inducing. The mystery portion of the story is lame based on its nonsensical backing. The themes on identity and desire get lost amidst the harshness. And the characters are wholly unlikable, specifically Shuiichi for his stagnate characterization and Claire for her bullying behavior.
The anime contains only one real selling point: it isn’t afraid to follow through. But that’s definitely not enough to justify how outright subpar and near inexcusable the rest of the show has gone.
Another Perspective, courtesy of Vaadwaur:Consider It
“The main character is a Disney mascot, his partner is an ecchi blond with freckles, and the design is just fricking weird. And yet, there is quite a bit to like here: it seems to know who it is with the copious fanservice shots, though obviously not aware enough to call this a parody or anything. I've really enjoyed how it has been animated, the fights felt weighty. But primarily, this show is completely weird. We are at making Parasyte seem normal type of weird.
My suspicion is that this is a love it or hate it type show for most folks. I like the style choices they made but not everyone will. The fanservice, again, is nearly ever present. And this looks to be a very violent show. The plot wants you to take its word that it is going to get around to making sense but we haven't seen it tip its hand yet. But HanaKana is voicing a girl with a communication disorder so that's a huge plus!”
Banjo’s PerspectiveConsider It
Hina Tsurugi, her mother, and her father have moved back to the seaside place that they once called home. Hina loves arts and crafts, so she makes it her mission to join the relevant club at her new school. However, a chance encounter here and a random creature there push her into a completely unwanted hobby: fishing. Yuuki, Makoto, and Natsumi welcome Hina to their group, and Houkago Teibou Nisshi casts its line into the water.
The fishes do not bite right away, for the first episode is decidedly slow and without much merit. But subsequent episodes have started to reel the audience in. The imparted wisdom about fishing rods, fishing techniques, and fishing etiquette string together a solid backbone for the slice-of-life events to rely on. Its cuteness and its comedy refrain from overbearing the relaxing mood it strives to achieve. And the production values, from the ukulele tracks to the detailed artistry, demonstrate a keen sense of style.
The anime foregoes deeper themes, so it won’t win any writing awards during its run. Also, Hina and the others are a bit on the plain side of things, hurting their outreach as fun characters. But the former isn’t exactly expected in a CGDCT show, and the latter has them working well as a group in comparison. All in all, their diary has not broken quite yet.
Another Perspective, courtesy of myaccountforweebcrap:Watch It
“First things first, as a part of the Cute Girls Doing Cute Things subgenre, Houkago Teibou Nisshi is not exactly groundbreaking; If you’ve already watched shows about high school girls in a club for outdoors activities (eg. Yuru Camp), then you pretty much know where this show is going.
With that being said, sticking to a known format is not a bad thing in itself as long as the show knows what it is. Fortunately, Houkago Teibou Nisshi is the type of show that knows exactly what it is; a fun summery show about the four members of the ‘Teibou’ club — the fishing club of their high school.
Set in Ashikita, a coastal town in southern Japan, the show has a chill, summer vibe that perfectly matches not only its setting, but it also matches the patience, calmness and quietness who are integral to the fishing experience.
The OST, the background art and even the character writing are built to match this overall tone. Unlike many of its CGDCT counterparts, there isn’t really a genki girl in the cast nor an overly cutesy, high-pitched voice character either who would be an annoying mismatch against the chill atmosphere.
Overall, if you need a relaxing, summer-ambiented show about high school girls enjoying a hobby in this tiring times, give Houkago Teibou Nisshi a chance.”

Parents sometimes hide information from their children that they can do without. Kakushi Gotou – the titular character of Kakushigoto and a father to his daughter Hime Gotou – agrees wholeheartedly. To her, he is a salaryman. But, in reality, he is a semi-famous lewd-creating manga author. Kakushi never wants Hime to find out about his profession or his creations to keep her safe and innocent. Inevitably, then, this ideal becomes the focal point of this absurd yet touching story.
This anime upholds high execution across the page. A soft, simple artistic direction gives the actual animation and the swift sequences a silly flair and a comedic edge. Narratively, it succeeds with its assortment of creative scenarios and with its thematic introspection of being a dad. The characters themselves shine bright: Kakushi is an upstanding guy, Hime is a cute kid, and the side cast introduce their own fun.
Simultaneously, a future subplot of sorts hints at further dramatic developments that (in a paradoxical current retrospection) instill a new viewpoint to the entire tale. Altogether, the anime strikes at the right emotions with the right ideas, drawing up a fantastic show without a doubt.
Another Perspective, courtesy of MightyMouseVsBatBat:Consider It
“Kakushigoto is a story about secrets. On the surface it's the secret our main character, Gogou Kakushi, is keeping from his daughter, Hime. Kakushi works as a mangaka and is the creator of a very popular but lewd series. Underneath is the secret that the show itself is keeping from the viewer. There are a series of hints dropped during the OP, the ED, and through the narrative that some event may be coming that will change the world for these characters.
It's this underlying secret that prevents me from giving this show a wholehearted "Watch it!" I have already fallen in love with Hime, and I would love to share an after-work drink with Kakushi and his crew. I'm not prepared for the feelings that I'm sure will burst forth if something bad happens. The anime is scheduled to reveal its ending at the same time as the manga, which will then complete its run.
But it's also this secret that prevents me from rating Kakushigoto as "Drop it" as well. The show as itself is standard slice-of-life fare and most of the scenarios are familiar and the new perspectives are thin. The fundamental components: the character designs, the animation, the music, and the voice acting, are all good, but not exceptional. I keep watching because I need to know the secret. I don't know if I want to know, but I have to know.”

The promise of granted wishes awaits at the end of Kami no Tou. A girl named Rachel vies to see her own wish come true, leaving behind Bam, a boy whose whole life revolves around her and her alone. Incapable of accepting her departure, Bam commits himself to climbing the tower to chase after Rachel, putting his courage and his determination to the test. Except the anime has already received a failing grade.
Its low marks pop up as mediocrity in most spots. For example, the meager, off-hand world-building comes off as inconsequential in the grander context of the story. Then the main characters have little going for them, both in terms of personas and their contributions. And the random inclusion of comedic asides has almost no place next to the murder and the near-death events, serving to prove its tone-deaf direction.
Worse still, the narrative has incredibly asinine motivations: “Because he’s cute”, “I’m just bored”, “It’s only luck”, “Instinct”. These reasonings for why scenes transpire indicate lazy storytelling at best and shoddy depth at worst.
Not to mention a weak thematic angle, flaccid artistry, and unremarkable events. Indeed, this game of Jenga is mortal, wounded, and bleeding out fast.
Another Perspective, courtesy of aefii:Must Watch It
“In Tower of God, Bam is looking for his one and only friend Rachel, who made the choice to enter and to climb the floors of the ‘Tower’. Bam therefore goes after her in the tower where the summit is the object of much lust. Many fights await him during his quest.
While the story seems quite generic described that way, many things make the show unique and enjoyable. Starting with the colorful art that is a feast for the eyes. The characters all have different reasons to climb the tower and their first interactions with the main character are very interesting and promising.
It would be criminal not to emphasize Kevin Penkin’s (notably known for his work on Made in Abyss and The Rising of the Shield Hero) work on the soundtrack. It is definitely one of the strongest points of the show, the music immerses us perfectly in the heavy and mysterious atmosphere of Tower of God.
I highly recommend this to anyone. If the overall quality remains the same, it will be without a doubt one of the anime of the year.”

Within Listeners, regular folk fear the Earless, nebulous giants that destroy anything nearby. Echo, a scrap sifter, seems to enjoy his unenviable job, if only because it gives him the opportunity to tinker away with his fancy Equipment. One day, he stumbles upon an amnesiac girl sleeping beneath a mound of rubble, naming her Myuu. She is a Player, and the two team up to move Echo out of his stagnate rut and to uncover the unknown past of Myuu herself.
But, metaphorically, the volume knob has been turned down.
That premise seems interesting enough, and it is, but the anime contains too many other inadequacies to justify its original concept. Less-than-stellar CG builds and stiff artistry prevent grander appeal. Even worse, on the sound side of the production values, the music and the audio design have not reached remotely close to the impressive threshold. And its awful tries at tense battles mute more of its entertaining chances.
The narrative has plotted out a solid path for Echo and Myuu to follow, but it’s a huge uphill battle now. Echo and Myuu are ineffective protagonists; side characters miss out on adequate time to be meaningful; themes on purpose have wilted away. What’s left, then, is an anime that just isn’t listening.
Another Perspective, courtesy of whispywoods:Watch It
“From the creator behind the award-winning mecha series Eureka Seven, Listeners is a new original mecha with a lot of similarities to its predecessor. In a world roamed by shadowy monsters called the Earless, mankind’s defenders are people called Players: those born with an audio jack in their body that can connect to an amp-mecha to fight the Earless with music-powered mecha battles. If that sounds awesome, it’s because it is!
This show has been described by staff as being for anyone who is a fan of ‘music, mecha, or both’. It contains numerous references to musical artists, and it's fun trying to catch them all each episode! I'm not well-versed in the mecha genre, but I find the battles in this show engaging and fun.
For me, the characters are the best part of the show. Mu, the heroine, is a headstong punk-rock amnesiac. Echo, the protagonist, is a mecha fanboy who plays support/mechanic to Mu's battles. It's refreshing to see the usual gender dynamic switched around, and the relationship between the two is adorable and sweet. The supporting characters of the series are also intriguing, and I want to see more of them!
All in all, I would definitely recommend at least checking out this series. It's always good to see an original series with such potential, and I can't wait to see where the story goes next!”

Minare Koda spends her days working at a dead-end restaurant job and her nights drinking her sorrows into ranting oblivion. It so happens that, during a particularly fateful alcoholic mission, she inadvertently pulls herself into the field of local radio. Nami yo Kiitekure captures this story, chronicling Minare and her struggles with brilliant delivery.
This anime maintains this brilliance both in its construction and in its execution. The comedy carries wit, inventiveness, and charm, fostering laugh after laugh within each episode. Great dialogue allows its scenes to flourish with ease. Its niche premise provides ever more intrigue. Neat artistry and slick animation bolster the show further. The characters feel real and personable.
And, as a separate yet equally vital note, massive shoutouts to the voice actress of Minare herself: Riho Sugiyama. Despite her newbie status, she has presented early here a phenomenal performance and earns praise as well.
Praising of this project continues. The adult cast is refreshing to say the least. The themes on having a voice and speaking one’s mind are relatable. The music selections, the romance pieces, and the writing chops are positive, positive, and positive.
Simply put, this anime is one of the best this season, deserving a return greeting to its own waving.

“Nami yo Kiitekure is the latest show from Sunrise, who made genre defining classics such as Gundam, Love Live and while it may fall short of those series, I think it is a fun watch, especially for fans of adult workplace comedies such as Wotakoi
The story is about 26 year old Minare Koda, who experiences heartbreak and decides to drink the night away, rambling her frustrations to a radio show producer who is impressed by her way of speaking clearly and communicating her thoughts in an interesting manner. After a set of hilarious events, Minare decides to accept the role of a late night radio show host and the series deals with how she handles this new and unexpected change in her life, while balancing people from her current workplace and her previous workplace, a curry shop.
While the characters are generally good, it is Minare, voiced by newbie seiyuu Sugiyama Riho, who absolutely steals the show with her charming personality and boisterous radio presence. The supporting cast is diverse and have a fair bit of personality, making them more interesting and multi-faceted.
Animation is well done, as expected of Sunrise and while the OST is nothing special, it gets the job done. So, my recommendation is watch the first few episodes and judge for yourselves if this is a wave you're willing to listen and follow.”

Visual novels are a staple genre of gaming and reading hobbies. What’s not as common is being teleported into a fantasy world that emulates one of these VNs. And what’s unique would be replacing the evil villain of the tale and changing the direction it goes to avoid the destined bad endings. I.e., Otome Game no Hametsu Flag shika Nai Akuyaku Reijou ni Tensei shiteshimatta…
Such a story has been filled to the brim with great decisions. A water-color-esque art style paints the setting in a relevant way. Nice setup all-around has created a good stepping-stone for the rest of the episodes. And the comedy and the drama aren’t too wild one way or the other, keeping things balanced.
Maaya Uchida, the voice actress for Katarina, also earns shoutouts this season for performing multiple variations of the same lead role in a flawless manner.
Several inherent restrictions keep the anime from being a super-high contender. The characters go without the most complex arcs imaginable. Dutiful themes aren’t paramount to the experience. And the true-harem circle going on probably means a definitive winner will not emerge anytime soon. In other words, it’ll most likely be pure hijinks and not much else.
Even so, the project has no glaring flaws otherwise, so these hijinks see hilarity and smiles – not doom – in their future.

“For many weebs, the idea of being reincarnated as the protagonist of a dating sim would be a dream come true. Unfortunately for our hapless heroine, she finds herself in the body of Catarina Claes, main antagonist of the dating sim Fortune Lover. As she recalls the details of the game’s plot, our heroine realizes that every possible ending will bring her either death or exile. Thus, her only option is to meddle with the script and avoid all of the doom flags.
The show gives a unique look at how a protagonist can affect the world around them: through our heroine’s memories, we’re shown how events play out in the game, where Catarina is cartoonishly evil. Compare that to the actions of our heroine, who uses Catarina’s life for the better of those around her. She is a very active, if unpredictable protagonist, and it’s enjoyable to watch her positively affect the supporting cast.
The stakes, however, don’t feel very high. Most of the bad endings for Catarina are achieved by acting like a monster; our heroine is fortunately a decent human being. This undermines the premise a bit and spoils a lot of the tension. What we're left with, then, is a goofy reverse harem with the faint possibility of doom looming on the horizon. It has merit enough, but you won’t be missing anything mind-blowing.”

Rikuo Uozumi leads a normal, everyday life. He has a close friend or two, his job as a convenient-store clerk isn’t quite exciting, and photography is a hobby for him. This realistic simplicity likewise categorizes Shinako, Haru, and Rou, the other prominent characters of Yesterday wo Utatte. Their relationships define this story – including the drama that their interactions cause.
It cannot be understated how grounded the show portrays itself. Besides a crow with a limp talon getting summoned from afar on occasion, the narrative and the presentation settle on realism. Talking in the park. Caring for a sick person. Meeting with family. The events and the connections want to be real for the viewer, so these scenes stick to this mantra.
Same goes for the romance involved and the reactions which occur. While that realism motif gives the anime its heading, the thematic takes on shared bonds and love in general supply it with the slight dramatic guidance required to make this a story worth telling.
Realistically, however, the project is not without a couple of worries. Their “random” encounters often come off as very coincidental. Almost too much so. It layers an unnatural force within the narrative that ironically goes against its realistic outlook. Similarly, neither the scenes nor the characters have been all that captivating (let alone outstanding), for more groundwork on both fronts is likely needed.
Worries aside, the nice production values, the apparent maturity, and the purposeful decision to skip an opening track for more content ensure the anime remains a good option today and the days forthcoming.

“Early adulthood is a particularly fascinating stage of life, childhood naivete still lingering as one gets hit with new wave of responsibilities and expectations. Not everyone finds themselves adequate, some fall through the cracks and exist on the outskirts of society, perhaps with a job more fitting for a student than a graduate, they keep on living in a world that just doesn’t seem right.
Such personalities make the bulk of the cast of ‘Sing “Yesterday” For Me’. It’s a relatively simple romance/drama, with all characters having some sort of affinity for one another and emotional baggage that makes it hard to form connections. What makes it stand out is the melancholic, grungy atmosphere, and the washed-out color scheme, appropriate for the turn-of-millenia period during which the original comic book series started.
I think whether you enjoy this show will mostly depend on how you like the characters - whether you find their struggles relatable and their awkwardness charming, or if you think they are just boring cliches, bumbling around aimlessly instead of getting to the point. Personally I’m greatly enjoying the show - it’s quiet humour, weird dialogues and shots with almost palpable sense of longing are tugging right at my heartstrings. It kinda reminds me of ‘Just Because’ with themes mixed from something like ‘Solanin’ or ‘Pumpkin and Mayonnaise’, making it a rather unique position.”
