In this prequel I will be delving into Jobless Reincarnation which was one of the better anime series of the winter 2021 season. It is one I would recommend for its good storytelling. Be warned thought that our main man Rudeus Greyrat is a bit of a perv so there will be ecchi scenes littered throughout this one. Even if you are not a fan of such things though don't let that deter you from watching this!

Bosse’s spirit who currently resides in the body of Daida stands before Queen Hiling. She is initially reluctant to believe the claim that it is Bosse standing before her but when he decides to snap his massive club into pieces and then crushes it to form a diamond, she grasps the situation for what it is. This huge feat of strength was actually something Bosse originally did to woe Hiling and due to the intimacy of the event is a sure sign that Bosse currently possesses Daida’s body.

Demon Slayer: Entertainment District Arc

full

Synopsis: In this part of the demon slayer the trio of Tanjirou, Zenitsu and Inosuke join the sound Hashira (elite slayer) Tengen Uzui on a mission to hunt down a powerful demon downtown.

Trailer:


Thoughts: Seeing as this is the third season it is recommended you watch the previous seasons (or at minimum the movie) as jumping into this might not make a whole lot of sense considering a big chunk of the opening one-hour special focuses on the ramifications of Rengoku’s death. Now personally, I found most of this long episode to be a slog with the first half being particular testing.

Finished S3.... this is actually a pretty good anime in this genre.... other than those moments in which the opponents want to talk a bit before their final attacks... Silly, but everyone does that... so it's hard to complain too much... and in this one, those scenes aren't every episode.... so it's easier to overlook.... this is definitely setup to last a decade like Naruto, which has to be the model for this shonen genre. I think S4 starts...

In this latest prequel watch I will be reviewing one of the most anticipated series of the autumn 2021 season 86. Whilst the series was not a stunner by any stretch of the imagination it does hold enough potential that if its weaknesses are addressed then this could be really strong series. Part 2 is still not done but from what I have seen thus far (seven episodes) it is a noticeable improvement as many of the issues I had with this season are addressed there making this a more worthwhile watch seeing as there is good stuff to follow from here.

Things kick off from the end of the last episode with Domas pushing Bojji off the cliff edge in what seems like a certain death!

Instead something remarkable happens. What appears to be a spike comes off Bojji's backpack that stops his fall. Bojji was saved by Kage who was hiding in his bag all along! It would seem like Kage has been following him for quite sometime as he points out this wasn’t the first time he saved him as there was the time he was cushioned from his fall when he dropped out of the castle tower not to mention the incident of the poisoned food. He only kept himself hidden so as to flush out Bojji’s true enemies. Pretty sneaky if I must say.

Jobless reincarnation takes the biscuit in this lot. If you are a fan of yaoi though then the decision will be more difficult and likely a tossup between Jobless and Tricornered Window. For non-fans of the Boy Love genre the series may still prove to be enjoyable as the mystery/horror element is strong but you just have to ask yourself what your tolerance is for not just BL and coercive relationships. If you can get over those hurdles then you will likely enjoy the series. As for the vampire cosmonaut, it is remains a solid fixture but for those expecting a heavy plot driven series, hold your horses as episodes three and four are primarily character driven affairs. Things do look like the story will pick up soon so don't give up on the series just yet if that is your schtick.

Strong showings in this lot but the one that edges it for me is Mieruko-chan! This series is becoming one of the hotter shows of the autumn season and I am not saying this because of the fanservice! XD I am generally leery of horror/comedy but this one manages to nail the balance quite brilliantly. A monsta pick this series is. ;) 86 continues on its strong start and while the third episode was good the fourth "cooldown" episode was a bit of a let down however this reflective episode did have a lot of ominous signs suggesting we are onto something big very soon. Meanwhile Yuuki Yuuna whilst not as good as the first two has improved with its greater action and tension which is all adding up to some big climax that will come soon enough...
