Anime Spotlight : Space Brothers, Witch Craft Works, Log Horizon and Inari, Konkon, Koi Iroha
Hey There, seeing as a lot of shows are coming to an end. I'm going to talk about a few of them every week instead of doing full reviews.
First off we have Space Brothers
A comedic coming of age tale of the two Nanba brothers Mutta and Hibito and their journey towards their dream of becoming astronauts, after witnessing a UFO accelerate towards the moon one fateful night. The show is quite lengthy at 99 episodes but it is worth every second of your time. The show is packed full of colorful characters that grow on you, and lots of emotional scenes.
Secondly we have Witch craft works.
A magic filled fantasy action show about a seemingly weak guy called Takamiya Honoka being protected and looked after constantly by Kagari Ayake, the most popular, talented and attractive girl in their school. Who also happens to be a really powerful witch. The show has a fair amount of fan service, but not overly so. Lots of comedy, a bit of romance and a ton of magic make for an enjoyable watch.
Moving on the list we have Log Horizon
Fans of Sword Art Online would probably end up drawing comparisons between Log Horizon and Sword Art Online, but other than the show being about a lot of MMO players being stuck in the game, the similarities end. Log Horizon starts of a lot more seemingly light hearted, but the focus is more about how the people learn to live in the game world, than one guy being a super hero. Definitely worth watching. And the second season has already been announced.
Last up for today's list we have Inari, Konkon, Koi Iroha
A shoujo type romance about a girl called Inari that, after saving a fox Pup, has a wish granted by a local deity called Uka-Sama. Inari
and Uka-sama's friendship grows after that . The show focuses on the differences between the human realm and the realm of Gods, and also the various problems each of them go through. A touching story for those of you looking for something a bit different.
If you watched any of these shows let me know what you thought of them in the comment section below. I will post about more recently finished shows next week!
