This was a last minute addition to this season’s run order for me. I ended up watching all three episodes back to back. Which I’m not sure if wisest course of action, given I have much less time to digest the series as I would watching it week to week. Let’s call this an experiment then, because I have some mixed feeling about In/Spectre.
I wrote a piece about the Shie Hassaikai Arc of My Hero Academia not too long ago, mostly lamenting the more serious tone of the arc and it’s lack of the fun that made me fall in love with the show in the first place. Well, right away this new opening for the next part of the series kind of seems like its specifically going out of its way contradict everything that I said in that last post.
Not that I’m complaining.
Shall I just ruin the surprise right away? My enthusiasm for this anime can’t stop me from just saying it at the top: Somali and the Forest Spirit is my favourite show of this winter season I’ve seen so far. I knew I was going to love this show right from the first episode and I’m kind of surprised I haven’t seen much buzz about it.
