Chaika: The Coffin Princess volume 4

Today is Review Rednesday! And I figured we might as well post early, because why not? But first, I absolutely must give a shout out to Bungo Stray Dogs, because it is AMAZING. I feel like I use all caps to emphasize things a lot lately, and I'm not sure if that's a good thing, but I'm just feeling caps more than italics.

Anyway, it's great, because it's basically like what would happen if famous Japanese authors from about a hundred years ago were super-powered detectives? And it's brought to us by the same director-writer team as Ouran High School Host Club, so you know it's going to be good! And the music is done by the same guy as Noragami! And we're especially excited about it, because the main character is played by Yuto Uemura, who played our second-(or third-)favorite god in Kamigami no Asobi, and he's been in almost nothing we've seen since then! And he has almost no emotion in KamiAso, but in this he has so many emotions! And we're like, "Hey, the kid can act!" Not that we ever doubted, but Tsukito really only has emotions in the one really bizarre ending. And the cast also includes the voices of Balder and Loki (our third-(or second-)favorite), so we have hope that maybe Anubis (our definitely most favorite) will show up later.

But even without our favorite voice actors, this show is amazing! The premise is fascinating, the characters are a lot of fun, the animation is fantastic, and all the colors are so pretty! This is one show I might say has stunning visuals and not as a euphemism for "I hated it". So if you haven't watched it yet, go check it out, because it's so great!!!

And now on to the review. This week, we bring you Chaika: The Coffin Princess! Spoiler level: very mild. And it's a pretty fun read, because we were clearly exhausted when we wrote it!

Today I'm thankful for getting to see Bungo Stray Dogs (it's so good!), getting to watch something new with Yuto Uemura in it, getting to read amusing reviews that we don't even remember writing, having Nutrageous to look forward to at some point, and still having vacation time to enjoy.
