What happened for some people watch March Comes in like a Lion 11.5 episodes or called Recap? Please tell me this anime recap is really good and surprised? Don't get me wrong! You should know that March Comes in like a Lion Recap is few people know and even fewer would care about it. It's a least better than Sword Art Online Season 2 Recap because it dosen't have time reset bullshit and amnesia nonsense. TV anime first 2 episodes are good and amazing. Unfortunatelly, I only felt like this recap went down after TV anime episode 3 as episode 4 or after are really boring for me. Some episodes are really unique and amazing, but the episode 11 is the worst part for me. Wait, this is meh recap because these episodes are ground generic and stupid for abusing the audiences interesting and happiness who is impatient. STORY SECTION: 5/10 Score "Meh"Analysis: Premise 2/2, Pacing 1/2, Complexity 1/2, Plausibility 1/2, Conclusion 0/2This story is pretty mediocre at best with no overarching plot line and lots of confusing things at time. This recap is more important events of episodes 1-11. This show only the most memorable is extra narrator for Rei Kiriyama. Now this show has tell you where shogi is more about the player. How Rei what pieces of use and move. It alsos tell you anything about how Rei should more applies good life while he has more family and how his past could be attack him in sometimes. Oh yeah, the TV show is one of the best story part for me, but this recap dosen't because this episodes was skipped some important events TV show episodes. Something else is so generic and boring for me. ART/ANIMATION SECTION: 8/10 Score "Very Good"Art Analysis: General Artwork 2/2, Character Figures 2/2, Backgrounds 1/2, Animation 2/2, Visual Effects 1/2 The art of March Comes in like a Lion Recap is really interesting and unique for most part. It's probably not too much nature, stylish and hearty but it's a least amazing and colorful sharp at all. Background is really meh but the character designs are well done and unique for me. SOUND SECTIONS: 7/10 Score "Good"Sound Analysis: Voice Acting 2/3, Music Themes 3/4, Sound Effects 2/3 The soundtracks are good in sometimes to hear but it nothing looks beautiful and amazing, I will tell you it's soundtracks are a least adds to the experience. The song is only 1 OP which follows Rei's storyline just by listen to it. I know that this OP song is nothing forced laugh looks-alike 90s comedies and I even know that how this song could be scaring, sad and smile, and root for them thanks to sounds. This song is really good and interesting for me. CHARACTER SECTION: 5/10 Score "Meh"Analysis: Presence 1/2, Personality 1/2, Backdrop 1/2, Development 1/2, Catharsis 1/2 The characters are just generic and nothing unique for my opinion. Only the most memorable and interesting in this anime recap is Rei Kiriyama who is become extra narrator and good character development in this anime recap. Also, Rei (or called Kawamoto) 3 sisters are also good and unique characters while they want to help Rei's good or bad future opponents. Other characters are really forgettable and sucks. This is because this episode is only get recap to either good/bad development, grow and needs breakthough their past obstacle. This anime recap some characters are looks bland, generic, stupid and poorly written. Kyouko Kouda is average secondary character (or called main villian) that like every other secondary characters, is dumb and is jealous. Her character remember me that Your Lie in April's Saki Arima is also makes the MC's psychological trauma, and the one that to fall love with Rei is no reason. Kyouko Konda is one of the worst character and is so annoying, stupid and absolutely awful as well for me. Overall, these were meh characters development. VALUE SECTION & ENJOYMENT SECTION: 4/10 Score "Bad"Down to it, the art is the best thing in this recap. All the plot elements are better presented in many other series and the cast is nothing more than archetypes. Retro freaks will like it a lot more than I did, as I am not fond of such grim stories with an almost shogi and Rei's past. OVERALL: 5.5/10 Score "Above Average"Overall, this recap quite likable recap. If it hasn't skipped some awesome important event or explained the origin of March Comes in like a Lion recap, it would be really good or amazing shows. I would recommend March Comes in likes a Lion Seson 1 and 2 TV anime because these two shows are probably the most underrated and amazing shows. And now for some excused scorings. ART SECTION: 8/10 General Artwork 2/2 (looks nice)Character Figures 2/2 (well-made)Backgrounds 1/2 (generic)Animation 2/2 (smooth)Visual Effects 1/2 (basic) SOUND SECTION: 7/10 Voice Acting 2/3 (corny but fitting with the feeling of the series)Music Themes 3/4 (not great but fitting with the feeling of the series) Sound Effects 2/3 (ok I guess)STORY SECTION: 5/10 Premise 2/2 (interesting)Pacing 1/2 (typical)Complexity 1/2 (generic and simplistic but it’s there)Plausibility 1/2 (so-so)Conclusion 0/2 (doesn’t exist)CHARACTER SECTION: 5/10 Presence 1/2 (weak)Personality 1/2 (cheesy but well founded)Backdrop 1/2 (generic and simplistic but it’s there)Development 1/2 (overblown but it’s there)Catharsis 1/2 (overblown but it’s there)VALUE SECTION: 4/10 Historical Value 1/3 (still remembered by some as an interesting retro title)Rewatchability 1/3 (low because of the loose plot)Memorability 2/4 (cool visuals and ideas but a very mediocre presentation)ENJOYMENT SECTION: 4/10 Art 1/1 (looks nice) Sound 1/2 (I liked the songs)Story 1/3 (good ideas but dull presentation)Characters 1/4 (interesting, but poorly explored and developed) VERDICT: 5.5/10
