Dies irae: To the Ring Reincarnation - An Ambitious But Flawed Battle Royale Story (6/10): Dies irae: To the Ring Reincarnation offers a complex narrative filled with supernatural battles, historical references, and intricate lore. It's a direct sequel to the original Dies irae anime, continuing the struggle between powerful individuals known as "The Longinus Dreizehn Orden." While the story introduces intriguing concepts and explores the backgrounds of key characters, it can be overwhelming and confusing for viewers who aren't familiar with the previous entries in the series. The pacing occasionally drags, affecting the overall enjoyment. Animation (6/10): The animation quality in Dies irae: To the Ring Reincarnation is passable but doesn't stand out significantly. The action sequences are moderately well-animated, with some visually appealing moments. Character designs are distinctive, and the supernatural powers are depicted creatively. However, there are instances of animation shortcuts that detract from the overall experience. Sound (7/10): The soundtrack contributes to the series' dark and dramatic atmosphere. It features powerful orchestral pieces and intense battle themes that complement the action scenes. The opening and ending songs are memorable and fitting for the tone of the anime. Voice acting performances are solid and help convey the characters' emotions effectively. Characters (6/10): The cast of Dies irae: To the Ring Reincarnation is comprised of enigmatic and powerful individuals, each with their unique abilities and motivations. However, the sheer number of characters and the limited runtime of the series make it challenging to explore their backgrounds fully. As a result, some characters receive more development than others, leaving certain character arcs feeling underdeveloped. Overall (5/10): Dies irae: To the Ring Reincarnation attempts to deliver a grand and intricate story filled with supernatural battles and historical references. While it has moments of excitement and intrigue, it struggles with pacing issues and complexity that may alienate viewers who aren't already familiar with the series. For existing fans, it offers a deeper dive into the Dies irae universe, but newcomers may find it difficult to fully appreciate. Regarding a manga/novel comparison, Dies irae originated as a visual novel and later expanded into manga adaptations and novels. The anime adapts the visual novel source material, and while it provides an animated experience, it may not cover all the details found in the original visual novel. For those interested in exploring the series further, reading the visual novel or manga adaptations may offer additional insights and context.
This is what you get when you let form take over from substance. The whole story, starting with the previous season is extremely confusing, especially when characters turn out to be planted by the opposing side and good guys are bad and bad guys are good and good guys to bad to try to do good but fail and become bad guys and work as a mole within the bad guy network and still fail at any kind of redemption and what the hell am I even talking about?!?!?!?!!?!?!? Yeah, that's what it's like. I love the animation. It is very impressive when German fighter planes show up but it is even more impressive when you can recognize they are Focke Wulf Fw190 fighters, even able to identify their model as Fw190D-9 (the D-12 didn't have the bulge in the engine cowl for the 13mm machine guns and the A series had the BMW radial engine). The King Tigers can even be identified as Henschel turret variants and the battleship Bismark can be differentiated from its sister Tirpitz because of the earlier antiaircraft armament fit (damn Swordfish and their torpedoes, LOL!). Of course, the only group in history evil enough to be acknowledged to be the villains for this are the Nazis (although the communists did make a strong worldwide effort to top their evil but too many of their conquered people still retained a soul). Only the Nazis could stand as a giant organization driven to war without end as their ultimate Valhalla and still be believable. Perhaps the communists fail in this regard because their anti-religious furor makes the concept of any life after death hypocritical. This series needs a series to explain this series or at least double the episodes so they can flesh out all they left out. There was plenty of exposition so it could have been done in the available timeline but so much attitude and characterization bias the telling so it's indecipherable. At least, in the end, you know it's good versus evil. The soundtrack is rather catchy but it just sounds so angry. If you like Nazis or apocolyptic visions or just crazy art for the sake of its own excess, this may be for you. It may also be useful for a psychology student to study the motivations of each of the many characters. If you are in the middle 80% of what humanity considers normal, I can't recommend it. I finished it as an endurance test, not because I really wanted to enjoy the ending.
First off. You gotta watch the 0 episode because it explains the nazi army and how they started out. The whole series is confusing until the end. Seems like this anime tried to do something but didnt quite nail it with the story telling. The story itself is a repeat of the classic take over the world shit. Like the characters atleast. Too bad Ren didnt fk senpai when she asked her to.
