Today’s anime is one I could easily foresee being much higher on my list had it come out earlier in the year and I’d already seen the entire run. It’s because I’m a very easy mark for the source material, and seeing it mixed up in this way is a great pleaser. As are nearly all interpretations of these characters are for me. So much so that I cracked out my old book of the original stories for some bedtime reading. Although that’s more like early morning for me at the moment.
Of all the anime I’ve been watching this season, there’s only one that has really intrigued me. Which is rather fitting considering that intrigue is the name of the game when it comes to Moriarty the Patriot. Despite enjoying watching the first five episodes, it still felt like there was something missing. Moriarty had quickly been painted as this near omnipotent mastermind, but there’s only so long he can be on top before things become stale.
He needed someone to challenge him, someone to rival him.
3 Episode Rule is a series in which I watch the first three episodes of a new anime and decide whether to stick with it or drop it based on those three episodes alone.
Man, where have all these anime been all year? I’ve been bemoaning how sparse the offerings have been all year and now the fall season seems like the quarter that just keeps on giving. And once again I’m here; thankful I forgot to cancel that Funimation subscription six months ago.
