This is the last of the winter line ups that are currently playing.
Showa Genroku Rakugo Shinju
This is a very specialized anime series, it is not for everyone and it certainly isn’t for me. I’ll be honest and say that I couldn’t even force myself to watch the first episode in its entirety. The characters are interesting and have depth, the story is about a young apprentice learning the old art of story telling. I find myself as a lose of words to describe this anime. I would suggest watching it, but don’t feel discouraged if this anime just isn’t your style.
This a 4 episode series where each episode is only 7.5 minutes long. The art style sadly annoyed me way too much. The stories are cute, the characters are interesting, but the art style is very jerky. I know there are many animes like that and it’s not an aesthetic that I like. I can’t really explain the stories with out ruining them since they are all stand a lone. It’s not a bad anime to skim through when there is nothing else to watch.
Noblesse : Awakening
This OVA was released just in time to make this list. This is based off of a web toon that is very popular. It is a lovely action anime containing vampires. It follows an old vampire who just woke up and starts his new life as a high school student. I might be bias because I love the webtoon but the anime is fantastic. I love the pacing or both the action and build up scenes. True to the nature of the genre of vampires, they are very pretty.
I have to say that this is definitely my favorite of all the animes this season. If you enjoyed black blood, or hellsing then this will be the anime for you.
