The stylish characters...



Ballroom e Youkoso 1! Fujita Tatara is a junior high school student with no plans for his future. He randomly follows a classmate to a dance studio and gets dragged in by an aggressive, enthusiastic dance instructor. He suddenly decides to take lessons after watching a dvd of a professional ballroom dance competition. The production is pretty good with quite detailed character designs; loong necks, lovely eyelashes...haha. Anyway, I feel this will be as flamboyantly fun as Yuuri!! on Ice. The opening theme by Unison Square Garden is one of the more likable songs this season, too.



Vatican Kiseki Chousakan 1! Nicholas Roberto and Josef Kou Hiraga are Vatican Miracle Examiners which are pretty much what their titles imply. They are sent to investigate an immaculate conception case. The premise was promising, but the production was rather tedious. The pacing of this show is noticeably uneven. The characters don't bring anything new to the supernatural religious story genre and there's no humor. Dropped.



Shoukoku no Altair 1! has some fanciful turbans. Young Mahmut becomes a pasha in the anime-version of the Ottoman empire, Turkiye. There's war brewing and he wants to stop it. This reminds me of Arslan Senki in how it feels like it is somehow based on history, but thankfully, I know nothing of that history, so I can't criticize this anime-fication of it. The main character is young and naive...and has a trained eagle(?). I enjoy historical fantasy, so while the production is a tad mediocre, I think I'll keep watching this. I also enjoy the costuming.
