A week ago I wrote a pretty negative review for the first episode of Try Knights, and I decided that I would do some updates on the review for three episodes to see if perhaps the story and animation would get better.
The animation does NOT get better…it may have actually gotten worse. First, there was CGI randomly placed as you can see from the screenshot. I personally don’t mind CGI at all, but this was random and not even good.
Just some more examples of subpar animation…
The plot of this episode is basically the two main characters fighting for some reason and Haruma is an absolute annoyance, truly….My God. Throughout those two episodes Haruma seems insistent on two things; his ability to “see” the future and wanting to put a collar on Akira ( ͡°( ͡° ͜ʖ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)ʖ ͡°) ͡°). I know a lot of yaoi fans are watching this for the yaoi bait, but honestly it’s not even worth it…
Again, an anime about Rugby in which the main character’s supposed “problem” is his slenderness should either have some really muscular characters or at least make Haruma smaller to make it make sense. I don’t see “beefcakes” when I look at at this, I see a bunch of boxes.
Well, you failed.
On the bright side, I found the one character I actually do not hate.
He should’ve stuck to volleyball, because then he would be in a better anime.
I truly hope the third episode is a little better, because I’m losing hope. I really really wanted it to be good (ಥ﹏ಥ) .
