Inuyashiki: Last Hero

Dec 21, 2017

Story 10/10

The story is quite unique, I certainly enjoyed it. Some seem to think that this is your generic good vs evil plot, and so they denigrate the anime. The show actually has more depth than that, it intentionally explores the concept of good vs evil in a philosophical way. The story likes to bend certain certain writing rules, and it does it greatly.

Despite the story being fictious, it somehow keeps it real and grounded into reality, where things don't always go your way. This degree of realism and the psychological elements of the show can make it hard to watch for the faint of hearts.

The story is quick paced and it doesn't waste your time with slice of life. It only shows the parts that matter and as far as I know, there's no plothole of any kind. The story is a solid 10.

Animation 10/10

A lot of effort has been put into the animation, this is not some cheap anime, I imagine that a lot of money has been put into this. From time to time you'll see CGI, I don't particularly fancy CGI in anime but it doesn't get in the way and it's smooth enough.

Sound 7/10

There's not much to say about it, as there's nothing special about the sound in this anime. And in all honesty, it doesn't need to be special, it's good enough the way it is. Although, admittedly, they could have spiced it up a bit.

Characters 10/10

The show explores the complexity of human personalities, relationships and emotions. There's no "something-dere" character in this show. All of the characters are realistic (and pessimistic). The character progression is real and quite satisfying.

Overall 9/10

If you're looking for an anime to escape from your real world problems, this won't do. I would definitely recommend it to anyone interested in a good plot, but know that this is no "feel good" anime where everything is bright and shine.
