Like the other Sunrise premiere this week Phi Brian, Kyōkai Senjō no Horizon didn’t make much of an impression on me. It started and ended with a lot of long-winded exposition, and in between was an extended chase scene and a lot of weak humor and not terribly exciting school combat. It’s easy to compare this to Maji de Watashi ni Koishinasai, in that both feature non-stop action in kind of war games format, but the similarity ends there – I found MajiWaKo much more fun. It made no attempt to explain itself and the silliness was much more over-the-top and – for me at least – funny. “Horizon” looked bright and crisp and was animated well, as all Sunrise shows are, but it was pretty generic in the way far too many Sunrise shows are, too. Huge names in the cast, big pre-sales on Amazon, but no spark for me. As I almost always do I’ll give it another week to interest me.
