Happy Valentines Day! Here is my first Top 3 recommendations with a touch of Senpai for this season!
#1 – Mahou Tsukai no Yume ( 魔法使いの嫁 ) The Ancient Magus’ Bride
The anime itself released as OVA’s on a monthly basis with a length of 1 hour each, total of 3 episodes. The story and art was rich and captivating about a young girl named Chise Hatori who is introduced as an apprentice in a sort of… Studio Ghibli type story telling who looks up to her Senpai.
The show was than adapted into an anime television series with a length of 24 episodes. If you’ve enjoy slice of life with a touch of magic, this is the series for you!
#2 – Death March kara Hajimaru Isekai Kyousoukyoku (デスマーチからはじまる異世界狂想曲) Death March to the Parallel World Rhapsody
This is a series I’ve been reading intently. It begins with Ichiro Suzuki, a programmer, who is ported into another world, similar to that of the one he is designing, after taking a nap at the end of a death march. A death march is a project in which workers are overworked, overtime, and against better judgement to reach an unrealistic deadline.
Once awakening in this unknown new world he has access to what looks like game icons and status bars. Thus far I’ve enjoyed the pacing of the story and it’s stayed true to that of the manga.
#3 Darling in the FranXX (ダーリン・イン・ザ・フランキス)
I absolutely love this one too. The animation and art style just felt so familiar when watching the first episode. Well upon looking it up it was done by none other than A-1 Pictures and Trigger! No wonder it looked so similar to Kill La Kill!
Though the art work of the FranXX’s, name of the robots, look colorful and cheerful, the story itself has dark undertones and a sad progression. I am just sadly anticipating the fate of the main character Hiro.
That concludes my top three recommendations so far!
Others on my list of Animes to begin watching that I’d like to mention as well include:
- Violet Evergarden (ヴァイオレット・エヴァーガーデン)
- Karakai Jouzu no takagi-san (からかい上手の高木さん)
- Koi wa Ameagari no You ni (恋は雨上がりのように)
See you around Geek Fam! Happy Valentines Day!
