I wouldn't mind seeing quarterly OVAs of it instead- the animation is so much more vibrant than the usual TV fare, and this series really demands all the detail with all the spirits and magic floating about.
To Your Eternity also known as Fumetsu no Anata e is a supernatural/adventure drama series that was first released in the spring 2021 season and consisted of 20 episodes. The premise to this story is a rather unusual one. The main character begins life as an orb which is cast into Earth. The orb is capable of changing forms when it makes contact with objects or living beings. The first form it takes is that of a rock when it lands on the ground. Over time as the temperature rises moss forms around the rock and the orb transforms into this moss. After a period of time a wolf dies on the moss which results in the orb taking the shape of the wolf. It is at this point when the orb develops a sense of consciousness and awareness.
We get a brief respite from the climax of the previous episode as Satoko reflects on what she has become after all these loops. Eua does ponder if Satoko is even human at this point. Interesting question she is throwing out…
After that moment of reflection, we are sucked back into the classroom where things left off. Satoko is clearly distressed, or is she?
This is the third season of the Higurashi franchise and unlike the previous two seasons it takes on a much light hearted tone. There are more fan service moments and general comedy that is not often seen in the main story so is really something that caters to the fans. Sandwiched between the filler though is a more serious story that centres on Rika and her making a key decision. All in all it is a fairly enjoyable ride but nothing too groundbreaking.

In the this part of the prequal series I will look at the sequel of the first Evangelion Rebuild movie; Evangelion 2.22 You Can (Not) Advance. Released in 2009 I would argue this was the strongest film in the entire Rebuild series. The balance in the story and action was the best out of the four movies plus the twists to the original Neon Genesis Evangelion storyline made this an interesting watch for newcomers and veterans alike. Despite what my review says (which was written when I had not seen Evangelion 3.33 You Can (Not) Redo) the preview can be completely ignored.
Evangelion: 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance also titled Evangelion Shin Gekijouban: Ha is a psychological mecha film that was first released in cinemas on 27th June 2009. As the name implies, You Can (Not) Advance is the second...
