There's a lot going on in "Sangatsu no Lion"/"March Comes In Like A Lion", so I will unpack it with lists of things I liked and things I didn't, with caveats thrown in as needed. This review is for both seasons 1 & 2, so spoilers for both seasons should be expected (as I watched them in a binge, I don't clearly recall what happened in which season).

***SPOILERS & WARNINGS BELOW***

What I liked:

1) The animation is interesting and unusual at times (with occasional rotoscoping). There are moments when the art style shifts suddenly to show that Rei is read more

It's a surprise for me because i was expecting a depressing drama like Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso, turn out complete opposite of that. What spectacullar about this anime is the character. Rei, the series' protagonist, resonate with me very close, it feel so real to me what & how he feel. Altough Rei have very different story & living place than me, still i can relate so much with him. For example many characters do not understand how can he... read more
