Hataraku Saibou: Cells at Work - Episode 2 - Anime Review

Jul 16, 2018

I had high hopes for this anime. I reall looked forward to seeing this show. However, after seeing the first two episodes, I am a bit disappointend. This is neither good or bad, it is just "meh". Nevertheless, i wrote a short review.
Well now…the novelty of the premise of this anime wore off quick! The first episode of Cells At Work was a fun comedy with cute characters with a possible romantic developement in the spirit of Magic School Bus or Where’s. But not long into the second episode this anime lost me. A voice-over re-introduces the characters and their function, as if they didn’t just do that last week, and other than that, everything’s too…straightforward.



There’s not much of any clever wit to anything. Everything happens the way you expect: when the skin (city) endures a scrape (fissure), it starts bleeding (flushing the people-cells out into the void outside). The platelets only encourage questions like “will they ever grow up?” or “why is child labor cute?” And of course, the red blood cell protagonist is lost again, because she apparently always is.







Hataraku Saibou isn’t bad, nor is this episode actually that much worse than the first. It’s just hard for me to watch personally. I actually scrubbed through the end of the episode. It’s a show that very genuinely and enthusiastically want to teach you stuff about the body while entertaining you with the hijinks of its characters. But maybe I don’t want to learn, or at least learn like this. It’s not you, show, it’s me.

This episode has a lot of characterisation and interaction between the main characters. We finally see the darker side of our bets girl Zero Tow and it’s apparent, that she is not a good girl.

Nanatsu no Taizai 2 is still going strong with this episode. This wasn’t my favourite episode so far, but it doesn’t mean it won’t get better in the future. I am definitely hyped to see the upcoming epic fight.

Nanatsu no Taizai is still going strong with this episode. The power of the ten commandments is continuing to grow and King is fighting against the huge golem, who threatens to destroy the forest. I am very pleased with this episode.

Darling in the Franxx Episode 6 - Anime Review
By

In this episode we got again glorious battle scenes, which were expertly animated by Studio Trigger and A1-Pictures. However, with this episode I am quite worried for the future of this series. Hiro’s tumour just vanished, without any consequences for our protagonist. I hope that the characters of this series don’t get a to big of a Plot-Armor, which would ruin the vibe of this 24-episode long anime. Having said that, I am very pleased with this episode and I am looking forward to next week.

The second episode of Darling in the FranXX by A1-Pictures and Studio Trigger has finally aired. The visuals of this series are great and the story though not so unique was still very entrancing.

Darling in the FranXX continues to be my favorite show of this season. The pacing is rather slow but well managed, the imagery and animation are absolutely breathtaking.

This week we got again a very good episode of Seven Deadly Sins season 2. How can you defeat some overpowered heroes? With more overpowered villains obviously.

Here we have it! I believe it’s safe to say that Darling in the FranXX is the anime of the season. There were so many things going on in this episode. The romance is better than in most dedicated romance-anime, the cinematography is as good as “Eureka Seven” and the action is breath-taking.

Boruto: Naruto Next Generations Episode 47 - Anime Review

AnAnimeGeek

With this episode the Byajuya Gang Arc ends. I find it fantastic, that Boruto: Naruto Next Generations turned the drama up to eleven. The fight scenes where epic and enjoyable. However, I still think the main villain is a bit bland. Nevertheless, it was a great episode!

Some elements felt pretty rushed compared to the manga and the shock value wasn't emphasized upon. I just hope that they won't rush it to the point where they start deleting canon elements like in season 1.

The winter season is well underway, and Studio TRIGGER has arrived on the scene with Darling in the FRANXX. In a world where children’s only value is determined by their ability to pilot robots known as FRANXX, young Hiro, also known as Code 016, has seemingly lost this essential ability. Resigned to being dismissed to a worthless life, his life is changed when he meets a girl pilot, or “parasite”, by the name of Zero Two.

Unfortunately, this was just a “meh!” episode. I didn’t really care about the characters. However, I still enjoyed it for what they are. I didn’t bother to write a review for this episode. I quoted following review from theanimescrolls. If you like it, please click on the link below and give them some love. That aside, enjoy!

Boruto: Naruto Next Generations Episode 41 - Anime Review
By
AnAnimeGeek

The new Team 7's first official mission closes out in a satisfying (though highly predictable) manner this week, as Boruto and company face off against Hidari and Ashimaru. At the end of the day, the conflict in the Green Banks was ultimately a less harrowing affair than the attempted coup in the Hidden Mist and the Nue incident, but it provided the kids with the perfect opportunity to work as a cohesive unit and recognize one another's strengths. Although the big battle against this arc's villains isn't quite as epic as the previous episode suggested it might be, the action and character chemistry is serviceable enough given the story's surprisingly short length
