SerendipitouslySane’s Second Sententious Scrutiny of the Season Supra, Part X

11.      Fate/kaleid liner Prisma☆Illya 2wei!

This just in: yuri still delicious

Sinon’s got competition.

Sinon’s got competition.

Illya 2wei continues to deliver what Prisma Illya was great for: magical girl genre parodies, intensive yuri, Tousaka Rin and excellent fight scenes, which I have praised and analysed in full when season one was airing. If you liked the first season of Illya, 2wei will not disappoint you, and if you didn’t like the first season of Illya, then you need to revaluate your priorities.

Rating: 6/10

 

12.      Tokyo ESP

Tokyo ESP is basically anime X-Men, with more romance pussyfooting, protecting your friends and family and not-related incest, but less Hugh Jackman. It is most notable for being set in the Ga-Rei universe, but most notorious for being written by the author of the subpar original manga, Ga-Rei, and not the staff of the more impressive prequel, Ga-Rei: Zero. By episode three, it became clearly evident that ESP was a desperate ploy to cash in on Zero’s success by selling a wreck of a show with a Yomi and Kagura yuri cameo.

And we fell for it, hook, line and bloody sinker.

And we fell for it, hook, line and bloody sinker.

By episode six it was clear that ESP has the animation budget comparable to Teekyuu, and a storyboard budget that is half that. No matter how much you like Ga-Rei: Zero, there is no getting over the ridiculous fight scenes animated in MS Paint. In fact, I felt somewhat cheated, after being promised tie-ins with an anime I love and production quality to match it, then offered such unrefined dross instead.

They were all blown away by how badly your punch was animated
