Dead Mount Death Play

Today, The Causal Anime Podcast dive headfirst into Narita Ryohgo's peculiar world of "Dead Mount Death Play,". The lines between life and death are heavily blurred in this universe by the existence of an overpowered main character necromancer, but the show somewhat manages to keep the tension up by a cleaver method of slowly revealing new antagonists. Although not as critically acclaimed as some of his other works, hopefully this just means that there better content in store for us in the already announced seasons to come.

Vinland Saga S1

Sometimes works of fiction are based on historic events, but Vinland Saga takes this concept a step further trying to rewrite the 11th century's exploration of North America and the rise of King Cnut, ruler of England, Denmark and Norway. Season one is a long winded tale of a young boy seeking revenge in a midst of a viking invasion. It's certainly more Heimskringla(King's Saga) than Vinland Saga at this point.
