Frieren: Beyond Journey’s End Review — A-

Frieren is old.

I love this manga and the anime did not disappoint. Beautiful story, lovingly told.

I see so much hate for this show on twitter and I really don’t get it. Yes it’s repetitive— repetition is useful to bring a theme across. Yes Himmel and Frieren never got together— that’s kind of the point. Yes Fern and Stark would be a terrible couple in real life— this is a cartoon. Come on guys.

The only reason it’s an A- and not an A is the second half (tournament arc) is the worst part of the manga. It’s pretty good for a tournament arc but it’s still a tournament, and you all know how I feel about tournaments. Hope this gets a sequel because the next arc is one of the best.

  • Storytelling – A – Great job.
  • Voice – A – Love the way it handles the passage of time and can be so casual about the most important things.
  • Characters – A – Very well characterized.
  • Attention Grab – A – Kept my attention from start to finish.
  • Production – A – Looks great. Amazing ED and OP.
  • Overall – A-
