On this episode, Katarina and her friends talk with Sirius. Later, she faces her possible doom ending. Wow, the finale is awesome. It was nice to see Katarina convince Sirius to turn back to the good side and along Sirius' dark past. Also, the "doom ending" is very hilarious because Katarina's dense or obvious point towards her friends. Other than that, I really liked how Maria only got attracted ...

Other than that, the big phantom battle is cool and pretty...

Unfortunately, I got to really say that Wells is one of the dumbest dense isekai protagonists that I ever seen throughout the ending. As I mentioned before, he still references his "original world", but he doesn't even take advantage of his original world's knowledge and acts like a child. Perhaps he has a child mentality in the original world as well? Also, seeing our male lead going against his ...

Princess Connect! Re:Dive Anime and Game Openings Comparison Thoughts

The openings for Princess Connect! Re:Dive mobile game and anime has very different styles. Here's a video that compares them. Personally, I really like the anime version opening compared to the game opening. The anime version just gives a nice KonoSuba style vibe and seems to be much more lively. An example is the Gourmet Guild doing their questing, and it's exactly not in the original opening. (...

On this episode, Katarina gets accused by a crowd and investigates her mysterious foe. Meanwhile, Maria detects dark magic. So it makes sense to see the secondary hidden antagonist making an appearance due to Katarina not being a "villain". Also, the investigation to discover the antagonist's indemnity is pretty interesting. Although, I find it a bit hilarious that Katarina's own dense personality...
