• Sorry to post something off topic in this thread, I didn’t see where I could send you a message directly.

    Have you taken a look at Houseki no Kuni this season? It’s very good but I hardly see anyone talking about it. I’m sure some a turned off simply because it is mostly CG, but this is some of the best looking seasonal anime CGI I’ve seen. I binged the manga after episode 2, It’s an interesting but admittedly slow start however, it steadily becomes something very compelling. If you like character development this should be a good one.

    • Hi there!

      I came very close to reviewing Land of the Lustrous/Houseki no Kuni this season. I decided on The Ancient Magus’ Bride instead, not because I didn’t like Houseki no Kuni, but because the other show’s world seemed more wide and engrossing — but not by much!

      I agree with you — Houseki no Kuni’s beautiful! I enjoy good CGI — like BUBUKI/BURANKI or Arpeggio of Blue Steel. They’re putting it to good use here — not only with the gems, but with the Moon Dwellers and the battle scenes. Watching Cinnabar protect Pho was amazing!

      I’m really getting into the characters, too. Pho’s inability to engage, Cinnabar’s tragic situation, Diamond’s longing — all very cool stuff!
