New frESHlook | Log Horizon and More
For my frESHlook column this week, I'm focused on anime. Some are old, some are new, but each one of them has some pretty interesting art and visuals associated with it, so let's dive right in.
Remember that my ratings are only my initial impressions. They are subject to change once I've seen the finished product.
This Weeks' frESHlook
Log Horizon is one of my more favorite "video game becomes my reality" type anime series. It's right up there with Sword Art Online for with a solid balance of action and romantic couplings. The second Log Horizon DVD/Blu-Ray collection artwork has just been finalized, and it fits the series really well. Read more here.
Soon to air on Crunchyroll, the second quarter run of Kuromukuro. features an homage to the mecha anime that many fans grew up on - like Gundam Wing featuring the damsel in distress and the featured mecha of the series. I love the look of this series, but you should check it out for yourself.
Ending strong with more mecha anime, is a new look at a promo trailer and art for the upcoming Majestic Prince/em> movie. The original Prince 24-episode series came out in 2013 and featured some great mecha battles in space. So if you like space and mecha battles, then you should give Majestic Prince and it's forthcoming sequel a good look.
