Solty Rei – Gonzo Does Father-Daughter? Sign Me Up!

Cool Creative Combo

It hasn’t even been a month and I’m already back with another father-daughter review in Solty Rei. During one of our weekly Anime Music Quiz games, the opening for this show played and several players brought the absence of this title on my list to my attention. A Gonzo show? A father-daughter show? Well, sounds like a gross oversight on my part. So now that the meme is out of the way, just how exactly does Solty Rei stack up?

The Skull Man – A Slow Burn Mystery

Who is The Skull Man?

A rumor about a masked killer in Otomo City, a corrupt district of Japan where conspiracy and death are all too familiar, grabs the attention of a Tokyo reporter, Minagami Hayato.

And the Girls Keep on Rolling, a Character Study for The Rolling Girls

Messy, Quirky, and Certainly Unique

If somebody asked me to explain what The Rolling Girls was all about in just a few words, this would be what comes to mind. It’s a messy show with lots of quirks, but it’s also an anime that’s a unique experience. While it may not be the strongest series I’ve watched, nor even one I could call a favorite, its themes are beautifully illustrated through the series’ characters.

Aliens (An Average Pt. 2)

A sequel is an admission that you’ve been reduced to imitating yourself.

Don Marquis

So, we have a strong foundation of what Alien is now, right? Fantastic lighting and sound design to create a truly scary atmosphere. Nuanced characterization to create people that seem very real. A monster that avoids sight until absolutely necessary to reveal itself to the audience. All these things are what I focused on in the last post because those were what I believed made a great Alien movie. Well today, we’re going to take some of those things, have them directed by somebody completely different, and turn up the schlock to the nth degree. Get ready folks, because here comes 1986’s Aliens. Let’s dig in:
