Morning Twilight.

Allen's pick of the week is a bit on the low-stakes side, but he presents a "yes/no" question in "does Hakubo really need a romantic antagonist to work?" His rating reflects the "not really" part, and if you think otherwise, well... that's what rating adjustments are for.

Of course, "conflict" can mean so many things, and next week, I'll have the pleasure of revisiting sort of an old friend of mine who sort of proved that, no, a show doesn't necessarily need an antagonist to make you cry. See you all then.

The Cat Reruns.

Alas, while our show of the week is made by none other than Mari Okada, Allen still finds A Whisker Away kinda middle of the road, mostly because it seems to borrow a weirdly high amount of stuff from another somewhat famous movie.

That's it for this week. Next week, it's time to be classy.

The Modest Operandi.

Allen takes a modest look at Modest Heroes, made by Studio Ponoc, and finds it a moderate effort from Studio Ponoc. And that's always the worst kind of curse for all studios and not only Studio Ponoc, isn't it? Because when you're outright terrible, unlike the averageness of this product form Studio Ponoc, people will still come see you out of curiosity, even if they'll hate every minute of it. Unlike this movie from Studio Ponoc.

Next week contribution is not a product from Studio Ponoc, though, but it's still just modestly average. See you all then.

Princess Connect? More like Princess Collect.

Well... at least in the game, I guess? Princess Connect! Re:Dive is yet another show based on a game that I had the pleasure of watching, and I don't even mean that sarcastically. This show is pretty damn good. Go have a look.

Once again, that's our lot. Meet you again next week... in the middle. (No, not the middle of the week, but... well, what's in a name?) Anyway, later.
