Celestial Method (Sora no Method)

Plot: Nonoka returns to her home town after years in the big city. When she arrives, there is a saucer in the sky. For some, the saucer is a nuisance, and others have quietly accepted it. Nonoka doesn't remember much about the town, but when she meets a girl named Noel, she slowly remembers that she is the one who suggested calling the saucer... (B-)

Characters: B-

Art & Animation: A

Voice Acting: A-

Music: B

Objectionable Content: Mild

Other: This is a painfully slow-paced series. (Coming from someone who has great patience with slow series, that's saying something.) I want to get into the story, but it's so slow about answering its questions that it's hard to get invested.

Overall Score: B

Recommendation: 2/5

When Supernatural Battles Become Commonplace (Inou Battle wa Nichijou-ke no Naka de)

Plot: Five friends in the literature club suddenly develop superpowers. Six months pass, and they have yet to use their powers to save the world. Instead, they go about their normal day-to-day school lives usually using their powers for gags. (Nothing special here in the way of overall plot. B-)

Characters: B+

Art & Animation: A-

Voice Acting: A-

Music: B+

Objectionable Content: profanity, mild blood, fan service/suggestive themes

Other: This is a kick-back-and-relax kind of show that offers lots of laughs and a little drama.

Overall Score: B+

Recommendation: 2.5/5

World Trigger

Plot: A gate to a different world appeared in Mikado city. In order to combat the "Neighbors" who poured through and attacked, an organization called Border was established that uses special technology against the invaders. Osamu Mikumo is an agent-in-training of the Border defense agency. When he tries to protect his classmates from an attacking Neighbor, a transfer student named Yuma Kuga jumps in and saves him and reveals that he himself is a neighbor... (B+)

Characters: A-

Art & Animation: Animation can be surprisingly lazy (especially apparent in the first episode's opening exposition), and background art can be sloppy at times as well -- C+

Voice Acting: A

Music: B

Objectionable Content: profanity, mild blood

Other: There is also a manga. The adaptation follows pretty closely thus far.

Overall Score: B+

Recommendation: 2.5/5

The Irregular at Magic High School (Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei)

Plot: In a world where "magic" is now quantified and used by means of technology, the magicians' powers are honed in special schools. Tatsuya and Miyuki Shiba have just enrolled in Private Magic University Affiliated High School. Miyuki is grouped with the elite in Course 1, while Tatsuya, due to his low test scores, is placed in Course 2 and treated as inferior. But he has a few secrets tucked away that will impact not only the school, but maybe even the country... (An interesting premise, but segments of the story drag while important questions remain unanswered. -- B-)

Characters: B-

Art & Animation: A

Voice Acting: A-

Music: A-

Objectionable Content: Blood, innuendo/fan service, profanity

Other: I personally wasn't very attached to the cast, and as the series goes on, it gets surprisingly bloody.

Like many other anime recently, this one is adapted from a light novel. I've never read the light novel or manga versions.

Overall Score: B

Recommendation: 2/5

Sailor Moon: Crystal

Plot: Usagi is your average, hungry, teen-aged girl until she comes across a cat named Luna that unlocks her latent powers as "Sailor Moon". Usagi looks for other senshi to combat the forces of a mysterious enemy that is searching for the legendary Silver Crystal. (So far, the plot is very repetitive, and conflicts are dull. C+)

Characters: I think this is where the reboot really falls flat. The relationships between the girls feel forced and contrived. C+

Art & Animation: B-

Voice Acting: B+

Music: B-

Objectionable Content: mild

Other: I know I'm probably going to get some backlash for this, but... I am so disappointed in this reboot -- more disappointed than I thought I would be, considering that it's an anime I was only really into for a brief period of time. The original was so fun and full of life, and this one feels like it's just trying to cover material.

Overall Score: B-

Recommendation: 2/5
