The adventures of Jabami Yumeko in the academy of gamblers continues.
I’ve never done a 2 in 1 anime review before, but I’ll do that here since I want to point out some thoughts I have on these two OVA.
First, I’m pretty sure you’re like ‘wth’ when you read the title, since you probably haven’t heard of either of them. Don’t worry, I’ll introduce you to them. Behold, spoiler awaits.
Let’s start with Amon Saga.
Amon Saga was released in 1986, and upon watching it I screamed ‘Saint Seiyaaaaa’ not because those two were similar in art or story, but the atmosphere and animation were the same. Amon Saga follows Amon, a generic stoic protagonist with white hair who wants to avenge his mother. While on his path to revenge, he met a generic long-haired damsel in distress called Princess Lichia. The two had a Romeo-Juliet moment, ratta-tatta-tat, Amon takes revenge, get the girl, and be done. Or not.
This madness called Kakegurui (Compulsive Gambler) is just getting started.
It is the intense finale of Youjo Senki. Ok, I wrote the review for all the episodes. Where’s my season 2?
These two episodes did very well on two things: Tanya’s humanization and making me dizzy by the aerial combat shots.
In episode 9 I got a feel that *spoiler alert*
Played the game for a year or so, game closed down, I didn’t get Kain’s story in time before it closed down, and now what? Oh, a movie? Now an anime?
Chain Chronicle is a mobile game about a continent called Yggdra raided by the Black Army, a swarm of monsters under the Black King. You play as the protagonist (Yuri in the anime, Erya as I named him). Your job is to gather a volunteer army and protect the world.
Here is the interesting part: the anime did not adapt the game, it continued after the game’s ending. (If I read correctly) I’m not sure where they picked up from, though. The international server of Chain Chronicle ended where they sailed to another continent where they have guns or something, but I am quite sure they did not adapt the main story because I’ve played about half of it. And I’ve played long enough to know that there is no card called ‘Aram’ in the game, so that must be new.
