2023 Quick Reviews

by Rakka   Tags: review anime manga books

Quick reviews of 2023 media. Will be updated throughout the year.

Scale used for reference:

  • 1/5: not really worth looking into; you won’t see many of these because I’ll just drop it without bothering to review it.
  • 2/5: probably not worth the time, but you may enjoy it regardless.
  • 3/5: an average to above-average series; may be a 4/5 to fans of certain genres or themes.
  • 4/5: a strong recommendation with some flaws or shortcomings.
  • 5/5: a universal recommendation; one of my favorites. Not necessarily flawless, but has something extremely compelling.

Anime #

Bocchi the Rock! #

  • Season: Fall 2022
  • Source: Crunchyroll
  • Rating: 4/5

Don’t Toy with Me, Miss Nagatoro: 2nd Attack #

  • Season: Winter 2023
  • Source: Crunchyroll
  • Rating: 3/5

The Magical Revolution of the Reincarnated Princess and the Genius Young Lady #

  • Season: Winter 2023
  • Source: Crunchyroll
  • Rating: 4/5

A yuri isekai, need I say anymore? Though thankfully, the isekai aspect doesn’t really come into play much.

Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch from Mercury #

You don’t need me to tell you why this incarnation of the franchise is amazing.

Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch from Mercury (Season 2) #

  • Season: Spring 2023
  • Source: Crunchyroll
  • Rating: 4/5

Extremely rushed, especially towards the end, and there’s some BS space magic. But that ending song is a killer.

Nijiyon #

  • Season: Winter 2023
  • Source: Crunchyroll
  • Rating: 2/5

If you liked Love Live Nijigasaki High School Idol Club, then this is a fun series of shorts about the characters, but otherwise it’s not worth watching.

Princess Tutu #

  • Season: Summer 2002
  • Source: HIDIVE
  • Rating: 3/5

I found the concept (magical girls, except having ballet dance battles) interesting, and the story gets unexpectedly dark (though that seems to apply to a lot of old shojo shows?). Unfortunately since I mostly watch anime on the side while doing something else, I wasn’t able to give this show the full attention it deserved.

Steins;Gate #

  • Season: Spring 2011
  • Source: Crunchyroll
  • Rating: 4/5

I’m still utterly confused (and I think the jokes about it basically being Clannad kinda hold up?) but it’s a time travel story that does seem to hold up. It also sorta feels like a grown-up version of kids’ series like Digimon in a sense, what with interdimensional adventures and Okabe’s chuunibyou act.

TONIKAWA: Over the Moon for You (Season 2) #

  • Season: Spring 2023
  • Source: Crunchyroll
  • Rating: 4/5

More of the first season (+clearer hints at who Tsukasa is).

To Your Eternity (Season 2) #

  • Season: Winter 2023
  • Source: Crunchyroll
  • Rating: 4/5

As messy and flawed as it is, it says a lot about the strength of the source material that even despite shoddy animation and pacing, this was still the only show this season I bothered to finish. It’s hard to talk much about this season without spoiling things, but overall, the story has found a way to break the pattern that the first season settled into, keeping it interesting while finding a way to address the core conflict. Season 3 was also confirmed.

Yohane of the Parhelion - Sunshine in the Mirror #

  • Season: Fall 2023
  • Source: Crunchyroll
  • Rating: 3/5

This is a spinoff of Love Live! Sunshine!!, which I didn’t watch. It was still alright; there were probably little jokes, but if you treat this as a fantasy slice-of-life with a focus on music it’s a comfy watch. The central conflict doesn’t really work, though, since it’s too obviously only ever as much as a threat as the writers happen to need in that exact moment.

Films #

Lonely Castle in the Mirror #

  • Rating: 3/5

How you feel about this comes down to whether you can tolerate a bit of corniness/soppiness and some bad animation/direction. The plot twists are fairly obvious and the film is heavy-handed in telling, rather than showing, things. So if you like the summary, but maybe aren’t sure, I’d recommend you read the book instead. (See below; the book was a 5/5 for me.)

Porco Rosso #

  • Rating: 4/5

Ok, I never thought “Better a pig than a facist” was a real line.

Ended quite abruptly, but a nice short watch.

Princess Principal: Crown Handler 3 #

  • Source: HIDIVE
  • Rating: 4/5

A continuation of the story from the previous movie. I though the animation relied a bit too much on obvious CGI, and I wish we had gotten some more action scenes, but overall I’m happy with the movie and can’t wait for the fourth movie (coming soon to Japan, at least).

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse #

  • Rating: 5/5

Suzume #

  • Rating: 4/5

While as beautiful as expected from Makoto Shinkai, somehow Suzume didn’t hit for me like Your Name and Weathering With You did. I was going into it with lower expectations already, admittedly, having read the light novel in Japanese last year, and I did appreciate the visuals and the ending more in theaters. And in some sense, this film feels like a redemption of Children Who Chase Lost Voices. Unlike that film, Suzume is her own hero and really has her own arch. But they also feel like they both fall short in the same way.

Mainly, I didn’t like Souta and wish it had been a yuri roadtrip as Shinkai mentioned in an interview. That’s not just the yuri fan in me speaking; I disliked the weird age gap between the two and felt like Suzume really had no reason to get entangled with Souta in the first place. The call to adventure, so to speak, was lacking in the first place, and it put the rest of their relationship on a shaky foundation. (Children Who Chase Lost Voices has this same problem, in my opinion.)

The visuals were nice, but the escalating disasters kind of meant that the climax didn’t feel impactful; it was just the same, but a little bigger. Suzume’s own trauma didn’t feel adequately explored in the runup, either, making the climax also feel like it was a bit out of nowhere. And it’s disappointing that the movie basically ends on a “status quo”; yes, Suzume has moved on and that could be taken as the message but then it’s in this awkward spot where it doesn’t feel as thematically interesting or impactful as Weathering With You while lacking the grand romantic themes of Your Name.

But overall, I’m happy that Shinkai seems to be trying to shake up his formula just a little, and I hope he is willing to take bigger risks for his next film.

Oneshots #

愛を落とす #

A recently dumped guy finds a lost-and-found for his girlfriend’s heart.

亜万音と母さん #

  • Author: 海野久遠 (@umino90)
  • Source: Twitter
  • Rating: 4/5

Supportive parents in anime, is that even possible?

文を綴る #

Transfer student OOTSUKA Ayano has beautiful handwriting, or so her classmate SASAMURA thinks. When she visits his family’s stationery shop, they begin to grow closer, but she’s hiding a secret in the letters she writes.

擬態ギャル胡桃沢彩を守りたい #

  • Author: @pirethloid
  • Source: Twitter
  • Rating: 3/5

The new transfer student is a born-and-bred gyaru, except not really, as our main character knows—she’s actually an avid bookworm who must’ve reinvented herself. But she does her best to keep up the act!

本音の居場所 #

自由の君。 #

  • Author: NARIIE Shinichirou
  • Source: Pixiv BOOTH
  • Rating: 3/5

A woman comes to New York City alone and happens across a young man who speaks Japanese.

カノン #

  • Author: ハルミチヒロ
  • Source: Rakuen Le Paradis Volume 39
  • Rating: 4/5

A young boy wakes up in a hospital after an accident with amnesia; a woman calling herself his wife visits him.

聞かれてから言いたい #

君のヒーローに #

He wants her to be his hero…she wants him to be her boyfriend!

このクラスにギャルはいない #

Two plain honor students decide to shake things up in high school by becoming a gyaru and a yankee…and end up standing out because they’re at a prep school!

持ち主の女のコと、恋する人形のお話 #

  • Author: @nekohariko22
  • Source: Twitter
  • Rating: 3/5

A cute oneshot from the perspective of two dolls watching their owner’s love blossom.

猫かぶり小夜曲 #

A cat yokai needs her human friend to keep her human form…but he doesn’t quite seem to understand her feelings.

人魚 #

  • Author: ハルミチヒロ
  • Source: Rakuen Le Paradis Volume 36
  • Rating: 4/5

A shady job working as a “mermaid” leads to a chance encounter.

天真怠慢☆コスプレイヤー #

A serious student’s free-spirited roommate turns out to be a shy cosplayer-in-the-making.

作ってあげたい!よもつご飯 #

  • Author: やとさきはる
  • Source: Comic DAYS
  • Rating: 4/5

The ghost of Nagi’s dead partner returns in a dream to tempt her with food, but it is said that eating the food of the dead means you can’t come back.

遠回りする先回り #

A gag based on the custom of giving the button on your school jacket to the one you like.

Series #

2度、恋をする #

Contrary to expectations, this collection of yuri works by nekohariko22 was rather…sultry. But that wasn’t a bad thing; this collection had a mix of stories, some more pure (like 恋するDolls—see 持ち主の女のコと、恋する人形のお話 above) and some are more spicy. Most revolve around adults. As with 麺面むすび below, it’s refreshing to see adults and more adult situations in manga.

2歳差の幼なじみ #

  • Author: イトノコ
  • Rating: 4/5

A pure fluff story about two childhood friends who grow up and eventually get married. Only 1 volume long and told out of chronological order. Not much of a real plot, mostly just snapshots of their lives at different times.

100日後に咲く百合 #

  • Author: ムロマキ
  • Rating: 4/5

100 yuri illustrations, some of which are loosely connected or feature the same characters. Otherwise, there’s no real plot. Fun to flip through with a variety of situations.

あーしとわたし。 ギャル×百合アンソロジー #

  • Rating: 2/5

An anthology of gyaru yuri oneshots. Not very interesting overall, though if you’re a big fan of Yukiko or Mikanuji they both have decent stories in the collection.

あなたの側にいると私は 社会人百合アンソロジー #

  • Rating: 2/5

An anthology of yuri oneshots featuring working adults. Not really worth it, even for the Mikanuji oneshot.

A Witch’s Love at the End of the World #

  • Author: KUJIRA
  • Rating: 4/5

Perhaps a basic setup (witches seeking revenge on humans, two witches falling in love), but with lovely art. I didn’t like how the ending was a bit too perfect though (think Clannad ending).

The Ancient Magus’ Bride #

  • Author: YAMAZAKI Kore
  • Rating: 3/5

(Dropped) A fantasy-in-real-life story about a girl sold as wife and student to an inhuman sorcerer. While interesting at first, I got dragged down in the school arc and realized I hadn’t bothered to keep up with releases, so I dropped it.

Chasing After Aoi Koshiba #

  • Author: TAKEOKA Hazuki, Fly
  • Rating: 2/5

Maybe I read through it too quickly, but it kinda felt like a bunch of nothing. fly’s art is beautiful, but in some ways I sort of wish this had been a focused oneshot.

コミックアンソロジー #僕のオタク趣味と女の子 サムシング・フェイバリット #

  • Author: nametake, ARIMA Rishin, others
  • Rating: 3/5

An anthology about different otaku hobby interests (manga, crane games, voice actors, etc.). Not particularly interesting either way, but if you like nametake or ARIMA Rishin they both have oneshots here.

Doughnuts under a Crescent Moon #

  • Author: Usui Shio
  • Rating: 3/5

A sweet enough yuri series, but I honestly forgot everything about it as soon as it ended.

コスプレ百合えっちアンソロジー #

  • Various Authors
  • Rating: 1/5

This one is on me: I didn’t really read the summary or look through this collection, I just jumped on it since it said “yuri anthology”.

It turns out this is 90% sex. Not my thing. Maybe yours.

遠距離彼女が会いにきた #

A fairly straightforward, slightly pervy self-insert story about ‘your’ long-distance girlfriend.

ガレットmeets20 #

  • Author: Various Authors
  • Rating: 3/5

NSFW content A collection of yuri oneshots. The first two (one mildly steamy, one pure), which featured adults, were the best; I didn’t like the art style of the third, and the last two were school oriented.

HIRAETH -The End of the Journey- #

See the recommendation.

カワイイガールズ #

  • Author: KOMAKI Maria
  • Rating: 3/5

Not really a story, more like a collection of illustrations, originally posted on the author’s Twitter.

Kubo Won’t Let Me Be Invisible #

  • Author: YUKIMORI Nene
  • Rating: 3/5

An alright fluff about a socially invisible boy and the girl who sits next to him. Nothing in particular makes it stand out for better or for worse.

麺面むすび #

See the recommendation.

Mermaid Scales and the Town of Sand #

  • Author: KOMORI Yoko
  • Rating: 4/5

A slice-of-life/light mystery revolving around the search for a supposed mermaid, tied up in the traditions and tragic history of a seaside village.

My Brother’s Husband #

See the recommendation.

No Guard Wife #

(Dropped) A somewhat racy series about a straightforward husband and his 0 defense wife. It got somewhat repetitive after a while, and it unfortunately writes its ostensibly adult married couple like a pair of teenagers.

Phantom Thief Jeanne #

  • Author: TANEMURA Arina
  • Rating: 2/5

(Dropped) While Tanemura is the Queen of Shojo for a reason, and I do really like her art, I haven’t been able to enjoy her actual writing. Part of it is that I’m not the target audience, true, but I feel like the anime-only changes in Searching for the Full Moon (where I originally discovered her) helped a lot—I didn’t like the source manga, and I couldn’t get into this series of hers, either.

Pyramid Game #

  • Author: Dalgonyak
  • Source: Webtoon
  • Rating: 4/5

A drama set in a school with a “special class” where students formally hold a popularity poll, making a social hierarchy with one student at the bottom. Suji, a transfer student, finds it weird that everyone goes along with it and starts unraveling the origins of the game.

The Reason Why Raeliana Ended Up at the Duke’s Mansion #

  • Author: Whale/Milcha
  • Rating: 4/5

An otome isekai with a strong/proactive female lead. (Minus one point because resolving isekai stories is always hard, I can see why authors want to drag them on forever instead of trying to figure out a satisfying conclusion.)

リコリス・リコイル 公式コミックアンソロジー リピート2 #

  • Rating: 3/5

Another anthology of Lycoris Recoil stories. The cover is gorgeous, but the stories themselves are just alright.

あなたの側にいると私は 社会人百合アンソロジー #

  • Rating: 3/5

Another anthology of Lycoris Recoil stories. Some funny stories; the last one was my favorite (and was very different in tone).

りんかね #

A great premise (a band of samurai brothers, reborn into the present world as classmates…except some of them are now girls) that slowly slid downhill until (trigger warning) one character just decides to go and sexually assault another, after which the series is axed with an incredibly unsatisfying ending.

Stand by Me ちさたきアンソロジー #

A Lycoris Recoil fanbook collecting stories from various authors, both manga and short stories, as well as fan art.

すれ違い巨大感情百合アンソロジー #

  • Various Authors
  • Rating: 2/5

A yuri anthology about mismatched, intense emotions. An interesting concept, but most of the stories didn’t really live up to it.

旅するリコリス 恋するリコリス #

  • Author: @2015chaosgroup
  • Source: Pixiv BOOTH
  • Rating: 3/5

A Lycoris Recoil fanbook featuring Chisato/Takina going to Kyoto.

転生したら前世の男友達に求婚されました #

An unfortunately short story about a pair of samurai buddies who reincarnate into the present day—but one’s now a woman! And of course, they fall in love at first sight, reminiscing over their past lives while making new memories together.

私の中でいちばんに光る、貴方 #

  • Author: @yatosaking
  • Rating: 4/5

CONTENT WARNING: sexual assault

A collection of somewhat twisted yuri oneshots from YATOSAKI Haru. While not generally explicit, the stories can get racy, and of course there’s the content warning. If that’s not a deal-breaker, the art is exquisite, and the stories are quite interesting because they depict relationships that are slightly off the beaten path.

私の百合はお仕事です!公式コミックアンソロジー #

  • Rating: 3/5

An alright, but otherwise nothing special, anthology for the series Yuri Is My Job!.

Who Made Me a Princess #

See the recommendation.

ユリコリス・ユリコイル 総集編 #

  • Author: @2015chaosgroup
  • Source: Pixiv BOOTH

A mildly ecchi Lycoris Recoil fanbook featuring Chisato/Takina gags.

Novels/Collections #

Dead-End Memories #

  • Author: Banana Yoshimoto
  • Rating: 4/5

A quick collection of short stories generally revolving around relationships and reflecting on life.

Diary of a Void #

  • Author: Emi Yagi
  • Rating: 2/5

A chronicle of a salarywoman’s fake pregnancy with some commentary on work culture and expectations.

I Will Forget This Feeling Someday #

  • Author: Yoru Sumino
  • Rating: 2/5

(Dropped) A fairly boring story about a loner and a supernatural girl that just didn’t hold my interest.

I’m in Love with the Villainess: She’s so Cheeky for a Commoner #

  • Author: Inori
  • Rating: 3/5

A retelling of I’m in Love with the Villainess from Claire’s perspective instead of Rae’s. While it’s nice to revisit this story, knowing the ending of the series makes this rather anticlimactic, unfortunately.

Life Ceremony: Stories #

  • Author: Sayaka Murata
  • Rating: 4/5

A collection of 12 rather absurd short stories: ceremonies where we eat the dead; a woman with five different personas but none to call herself; a family meltdown about eating habits; and more. See the short story recommendation.

Lonely Castle in the Mirror #

  • Author: Mizuki Tsujimura
  • Rating: 5/5

While on the surface, this seems like an isekai story, it actually doesn’t really conform itself to those limits at all. Seven troubled children find themselves in a different world—but instead of going on quests to fulfill their destiny, their year in a magical castle gives them the time and space to heal, and to grow. Now, the final plot twists are admittedly a bit predictable, and it comes together in maybe an overly sentimental and perfect way. But it’s a fulfilling ending, one that isn’t perfectly happy but still a fairytale ending. It’s beautifully bittersweet, and I wolfed down this story and felt content at the end.

Also see ANN’s review.

The Magical Revolution of the Reincarnated Princess and the Genius Young Lady (Volume 4) #

  • Author: Piero Karasu
  • Rating: 3/5

To be honest, I liked this story more when Anis was an adventurer and a brat; it is nice that the story is moving forward, but what I originally liked about the story isn’t quite there anymore.

My Happy Marriage #

  • Rating: 2/5

The passivity of the FMC, while justified in the story, makes this a fairly dull read beyond the first volume.

Old Babes in the Wood #

  • Author: Margaret Atwood
  • Rating: 3/5

A collection of short stories; several of them follow a couple called Nell and Tig. Overall, the stories were alright and didn’t leave much of an impression; the last few ones about Nell and Tig were most interesting—about Nell trying to keep on going after the death of her husband. Also, “My Evil Mother” was a fun tale about children becoming parents and having their perspectives slowly shift.

Our Missing Hearts #

  • Author: Celeste Ng
  • Rating: 5/5

A near-future book about where the anti-Asian racism in America could all to plausibly lead. It draws on history both recent and distant, and frankly was just difficult to read at times because it’s terrifyingly realistic, and you just feel powerless. I would say the ending was a bit of a letdown—but frankly, there isn’t any way there could be a satisfying ending, not one that would actually fit.

Someone in Time: Tales of Time-Crossed Romance #

  • Various Authors
  • Rating: 4/5

A collection of time-travel romance stories. As usual with anthologies, the quality is uneven, but I think everyone can find one or two that’ll speak to them.

There’s No Such Thing as an Easy Job #

  • Author: Kikuko Tsumura
  • Rating: 3/5

A comedic account of a woman who goes searching for a simple, easy job and finds anything but. It’s decently funny and somewhat reminded me of George Saunders, with a sort of matter-of-fact approach to rather ridiculous events, but for me it started dragging a little at the end.

Villainess Level 99: I May Be the Hidden Boss but I’m Not the Demon Lord (Volume 1) #

  • Author: Satori Tanabata
  • Rating: 3/5

A completely by-the-numbers oblivious isekai villainess story that nevertheless manages to be consistently funny just by playing all the tropes straight. It does move extremely fast, so much so that I wonder if the story couldn’t have been padded more, but overall it was probably for the better.

Vivy Prototype #

  • Author: Tappei Nagatsuki, Eiji Umehara
  • Rating: 3/5

(Dropped) The light novel version of the anime. Doesn’t really have any differences with the anime, so just watch that instead.

Yellowface #

  • Author: R. F. Kuang
  • Rating: 4/5

I feel like Yellowface is a bit too excessively meta, winking a little too much at the reader. The satire is layered on really thickly, and it’s definitely a caricature of white/Asian-American tropes, even if it’s a caricature I delight in. Of course, it’s also an author writing about being an author: deeply personal, but also an exercise in navel-gazing (and one the book itself makes fun of). But it’s still a fun read, even if I think I prefer Disorientation’s approach to the core themes. And the first person narration here is an interesting effect, especially as June absolutely refuses to admit guilt and throws out all manner of justifications. Athena Liu may not have been perfect—she’s certainly depicted as quite flawed, calculating, cunning—but again that’s used as an excuse to justify things against someone who was only human.

Short Stories #

The Cleaners #

  • Author: Ken Liu
  • Rating: 3/5

A mild fantasy story about a world where memories leave physical residue on objects. The story centers around two people, one who cannot feel these at all (which is very unusual) and one who can only feel memories personal to her (which is unusual).

Collaboration? #

A fever dream where it’s hard to tell what’s going on or even how one paragraph follows from another.

The God of Minor Troubles #

The Ocean Remembers the Wave #

An interstellar search for a long-lost friend.
