Catching myself up on January’s Year of Anime entry, here’s Gankutsuou! I’ve heard this name thrown around a few times for its style but other than that, I went in almost completely blind. Turns out this adaptation of The Count of Monte Cristo has a lot more to it than just style. Mesdames et messieurs… maintenant à l’analyse!
Here comes December’s Year of Anime entry! Welcome to the NHK has always been described to me as a classic, but I wasn’t sure what to expect from a show about a shut in, or hikikomori. Luckily, Welcome to the NHK has a LOT for me to chew on, and I thought I’d take the time to do so here. While my overall thoughts on the show are going to pop up, this review will mostly analyze what makes NHK so special, so consider it a reviewlysis!
