It’s that time of the year again, so enjoy our First Impressions of the 2020 spring anime season that just started~
Thanks to Kill la Kill, I’ll almost always be interested when Trigger comes out with a new anime, so it was an easy decision to pick up BNA. Between this and Beaststars, it seems that anthropomorphic animal person anime is in style lately, but unlike Beaststars, this seems to be about the volatile relationship between humans and beastmen. It didn’t take long for violence to flare up between the two sides, with our dear protagonist (and tanuki girl), Michiru, caught in the middle.
Even in the supposed safe haven of Anima City, there’s already some backstabbing and shady dealings going on, and I’m expecting a whole lot more of that in future episodes. Like all Trigger anime, BNA isn’t lacking in style points, and although we only got a glimpse of it in this first episode, I’m expecting the action to be over-the-top and chaotic, just how I like it. Also, I got some Zootopia vibes for a minute, and since I love that movie, I’ll at least keep watching for a bit. That said, I don’t always finish non-yuri shows that I pick up, so BNA has some work to do in order to win me over. The first six episodes of this anime dropped all at once, so I should find out pretty early on if this is worth my time. For old times’ sake, let’s hope that Trigger once again saves anime~
