The brothers ask the age old question, “can being an objectivist libertarian turn a dating villainess into a heroine?”, with My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom! (HameFura). Catarina, a haughty noble child one day bumps her head and realizes that she is, in fact, a reborn fujoshi from Japan who was obsessed with otome games. Now she finds herself as the villainess of her favorite game “Fortune Lover” and must act quickly before she is either killed in a duel or exiled for life. Can she avoid the death flags and accidentally acquire a harem for herself? Also featuring: Tower of God and Tsukuyomi: Moon Phase.
The manga revolution may be in for a revolution as the Aniki brothers climb a deadly gauntlet with the adaptation of the Korean manwa Tower of God. Originally published on Webtoons, Tower of God is a rarity in that it is an anime based on non-Japanese published source material. Following the Twenty-Fifth Baam, or Yoru, the show follows his journey through the eponymous tower to reunite with his friend Rachel. Said to grant any wish to those that reach its top, the tower poses a mighty and deadly gauntlet for each of its floors. While a shounen at heart, this is a unique spin on the genre with amazing animation and fantastic music. Also featuring: mahjong rants and some other manga reviews.
After reviewing the first two seasons of Netflix’s original series Castlevania, the Aniki brothers try out the latest season to see how it measures up. Set shortly after the events of the last season, the third installment follows four distinct plot threads focusing on two protagonist and two antagonist groups as they make their way in the land of Wallachia following the defeat of Dracula and his army. The brother’s first encounter with Castlevania was disappointing. Can Castlevania 3 regain their faith in the series? Also featuring: Rising of the Shield Hero, Listeners, and Tower of God.
