Riverdale is the sort of delicious trash that mimics masterpieces by draping its awful dialogue in red velvet and beautiful people. God, it’s fucking wonderful.
As my wife puts it, “This is every bad, neckbeard cliché about anime come true.”
Gate is an incredibly jarring anime experience.
Once you get past the undeniably unique conceit of KanColle, there’s not much to recommend it.
