Spring Season Anime 2024 Reviews

Hi everyone. Another season is almost coming to a close and with it a lot of great simulcasts that we took a look at during that time. Also, I will try to release my list for Summer 2024 Season simulcast selections in the coming days

What are the changes made to the review process? I will rate both the Japanese Dub and English Dub(If any) on a scale of 1 to 10 as usual. Afterwards, I will provide brief comments(If any) regarding the shows based on the rating given. The simulcasts are arranged based on their final episode simulcast date.

The Banished Former Hero Lives as He Pleases:

Japanese Dub: 6/10
English Dub: /10
Comments(If any): At first I thought this show was just your typical reincarnation anime. However as the story progressed it felt very plain and very generic. The character development was minimal at best as it was mostly focused on the main character Allen with very little progress. Overall its just a good enough show for those who just want to breeze through the plot without thinking about it.

The Duke of Death and His Maid Season 3:

Japanese Dub: 8/10
English Dub: 8/10
Comments(If any): Bocchan’s struggles for the past seasons has been both funny and somewhat painful to watch as he tries every possible way to get rid of his curse. Thankfully all of that hard work and effort has paid off in this season. The story was very good as we continue to encounter more challenges and roadblocks in order to achieve his goal. The character development was excellent as everyone had some improvement to themselves since the last season. Overall, its an excellent show for those who are into romance comedy.

Vampire Dormitory:

Japanese Dub: 8/10
English Dub: 8/10
Comments(If any): I find this show not only funny but also a bit frustrating as Ren and Ruka fight over Mito. The best part is that both of them were vampires while Mito is a girl disguised as a guy makes it even more bizarre. The story was excellent where we see Mito trying to so hard to prevent her true gender from being discovered only to have that backfire on her towards the end. The character development was also excellent we got to see significant development for most of the characters after they met Mito. Overall its an excellent show for those who are into romantic comedy with cross-dressing and vampire elements added on top. Seems like the story is not over yet. Hopefully, a 2nd season will be greenlit in the future.

Tadaima, Okaeri:

Japanese Dub: 8/10
English Dub: /10
Comments(If any): This is probably the most casual BL anime I have watched so far. Also this show gives another perspective to BL anime that we haven’t seen so far. The story was excellent where we see Masaki and Hiroumu trying to live their lives despite their unusual relationship that some despise. The character development was also excellent as we learned a lot about most of the characters as well as seeing them develop further as the story progresses. Overall its an excellent show for those who want a different take on BL anime.

Unnamed Memory:

Japanese Dub: 8/10
English Dub: /10
Comments(If any): At first, I thought this show was just your typical romance adventure kinda of show but as the story progresses there was more to it than meets the eye especially the last episode which completely threw me off guard. The story was excellent was we saw all the challenges faced by Oscar as he works with Tinasha to break his curse however fate ends up concluding the story in an unexpected way. The character development was excellent as we learned a lot both Tinasha and Oscar as they overcome challenges. Overall, this is one of the unique romance adventure show I have seen so far. Let’s see what they will bring in Season which has been confirmed for January 2025.

WIND BREAKER:

Japanese Dub: 9/10
English Dub: 8/10
Comments(If any): When I first saw the trailer for this show, I thought it was going to be another Tokyo Revenger. However, I was proven wrong as the show was in a league of its own and better than Tokyo Revengers. The story was outstanding as we see our main protagonist, Sakura adapting to his new life as a member of Bofurin and slowly learning to trust others. The character development was excellent as almost every character showed positive development as they overcome challenges. Overall, its an excellent show for those who want a new take on delinquents genre of shows. Can’t wait for their 2nd season which was confirmed for 2025 release.

Dragon Raja -The Blazing Dawn-:

Japanese Dub: 8/10
English Dub: /10
Comments(If any): This was my first Chinese anime therefore I surprised myself when I decided to take up the show. It felt more like a video game adaption given all those terminology used. The story was excellent as follow the journey of the main character, Lu Mingfei during his time at college that he was invited too which was shrouded in mystery. The character development was excellent as almost every character had shown significant growth after meeting with Lu Mingfei despite him being a bit annoying sometimes. Overall its an excellent show for those who want mystery and adventure kind of show. Let’s see if there will be a 2nd season to continue the story.

The New Gate:

Japanese Dub: 7/10
English Dub: /10
Comments(If any): When I first saw this show, I thought this would be another Sword Art Online rip off however as the story progressed there a few noticeable differences other than the main character being super over-powered. The story was good as we follow Shin as continues his journey in a new unfamiliar when he was supposed to have logged out after clearing the final boss. The character development was excellent too where we saw significant growth with most characters after they met Shin. Overall its a good show for those who seek a different perspective from the usual Isekai.

Tonari no Yokai-san:

Japanese Dub: 7/10
English Dub: /10
Comments(If any): For this show, I thought it was just going to be some average sweet cuddly Yokai show. While that was the case for most of the story, it quickly did a 180 and then another 180 which caught me by surprise. The story was good as we follow Bucchio as he learns more about his kind and life itself after being transformed into a Yokai. The character development was also very good as almost character showed development after encountering and overcoming those mysterious events especially towards the end of the series. Overall its a good show for those who want a show that values family and friends.

Sound! Euphonium Season 3:

Japanese Dub: 8/10
English Dub: /10
Comments(If any): After quite a long time, we are finally back for the season finale of this series which is both a happy and sad moment. The story was excellent as we continue to see Kumiko facing more challenges as the president of the school’s music club as well as the pressure she has to face when making decisions which affects the entire club. The character development was excellent as saw everyone had significant development as they overcome their own challenges in the bid to reach their objective which is to obtain gold at the national competition. Overall its an excellent show for those who are into orchestra music and spice of life dramas.

Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation Season 2:

Japanese Dub: 9/10
English Dub: 9/10
Comments(If any): We are back for another long winding journey as Rudeus seeks to find the rest of his family after that teleportation event. The story was excellent as we saw Rudeus facing some hard times during the first cour and how it seems he was living a normal life in the 2nd cour before facing another major challenge. The character development was excellent as we saw quite a significant development for almost all characters as the story progressed as they overcome their own challenges. Overall this is one of the best adventure Isekai anime. Can’t wait to see what they will bring for next season.

Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Season 4: Hashira Training Arc:

Japanese Dub: 8/10
English Dub: 8/10
Comments(If any): This season felt a bit light given its mostly focused on Tanjiro and his recovery after his last major battle. The story was excellent as it we learned a bit more about the Hashiras themselves whilst Tanjiro trains with every single one of them. The character was also excellent as we saw significant improvement for most of the characters after they overcame the challenges faced during the training. Overall its an excellent show for those who are into fantasy and action. Can’t wait to see what they will bring for their sequel which will be a movie.

Oblivion Battery:

Japanese Dub: 7/10
English Dub: /10
Comments(If any): Amnesia seems to be a common theme when it comes to sport anime from MAPPA. The story was good as we saw Kei’s struggles to master baseball after losing his memory in an unusual incident. The character development was also good as we saw everyone around Kei had significant development after they formed the baseball team and overcoming their individual challenges. Overall its a good show for those who are into sport anime but with some comedy elements added to it.
