DragonBall Kai is essentially a remastered version of the original series. Truth be told, I didn’t really understood what remastered actually meant. What I had in mind was a complete redraw but with the same story and script. Well, after watching the first 2 episodes, instantly I know this is gonna be another pass. Lol! But what I’m curious now is whether the animation will improve in the later episodes as compared to the current first few.
Comments: Will probably take a dive into this series midway if the animation improves, otherwise, I’m just gonna skip it.
Lol! Well.. What I actually wanted to say was that I am not going to do episode to episode reviews contrary to what my previous post might lead you to believe. I was just dead bored and was getting all restless waiting for Toradora to complete. So I thought I’d just try and review the 3 episodes of Wangan Midnight as I was watching it and see how it went. And as expected, I pretty much needs a better vocabulary base. Lol!
However, other bloggers at Anime3r (should anyone actually joins us) are welcomed to do so.
Just as expected, I really shouldn’t review an anime until I finish the whole series. These three episodes was on a whole new level.
Eiji reconsiders his life as a racer or something else, clearing his doubts and finally having no regrets anymore. Eiji really shows that Wangan Midnight can actually bring depth to their characters rather than being just a blunt anime about cars, speed and who the fastest is.
Akio gets another reality check of his devoted Z after a race with BlackBird and Eiji’s Evo. And later seeks out Rikako, a newly introduced tuner character in the anime, to take his Z to even greater heights.
There isn’t anything much on Blackbird this few episodes except that he now knows what it feels like to drive with instincts rather than logic a.k.a. Akio style.
And FINALLY! Reina admitted that she does have a thing towards Akio, but it’s not like nobody suspected it. At least viewers can finally confirm it from her… in an indirect sort of way… I guess.
Putting all these together, this 3 episodes or rather the Eiji story arch is definitely the peak of the series so far. Let’s hope the performance will last till the final few episodes. For once the spotlight was not focused on the Z or Blackbird or their drivers.
