Another couple of anime from 2017 that highly rated completed.
Finish everything in one setting. Production wise, I think the anime is quite good. But I think it played too much on absurd premise and games without much development on back story of each character. I cant even related to the male character (assuming he kinda like 2nd MC). I already watched couple of gambling games and read several manga, Kakegurui feel lacked on certain aspect that I couldnt explained. Despite how high stake they gamble, the build up and the thrill feel isnt there and pay off is kinda meh.
2. Youko Senki
Another top anime based from word of mouth. I kinda knew that MC was reborn from a man, but I really have problem with overall setup of the series. I admit it got a good start from first 3 episodes, and then several episodes after that feel like straight military story. There arent much about good tactical movement or strategy deployment, but instead focus about all human emotional from both warring side. To make it worst, I really dislike the way the series wrapped up at the end, which doesnt properly closed up all the earlier setup.
3. The girls last tour
Military-ish girls slice of life exploring into unknown territories in unknown era. By scope, this series is quite small. Focused much on the 2 main girls going through abandoned ... lands while learning about the world. My problem with the series was it kinda too slow and uneventful for most of early part of the series. It could be the slowest slice of life anime I ever watch (go watch 1st scene in 1st episode to get what i meant). Luckily the series did couple of nice scene in certain episode, like the awesome ending in episode 5. I would say that I wish story was more like the final 3 episodes (eventful, world building and awe with strange thing). Soundtrack is kinda awesome though.
*March come like lion & Boku no Academia next, i need some fast paced anime.
