Re:Creators

Sometimes the beauty of anime surpasses any limits I imagined possible. But one thing is certain: I will never cease to be amazed when those limits are broken anew.

Aharen is Indecipherable

If I could write this review in a whisper, it would be very appropriate. Imagine, the text being so quiet that you have to get really close to the screen to read it. So close in fact that both you and the electronic device become uncomfortable with the proximity. Hilarious no?

Most isekai shows are subjected, unfairly I believe, to the charge of being very cookie-cutter, sharing too many characteristics, to the point that one seems very much like a copy of the next. Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation definitely does everything it can to buck that label. […]
