Review: Tegami Bachi REVERSE

Letter Bee 2

Alex: Letter Bee is such a strong franchise to me. I could say that because the first series weaved a special place in my heart for the single fact of how utterly heartwarming almost every story was. Lag Seeing, who meets Gauche Suede,a Letter Bee who’s dedicated to delivering the hearts of the residents of Amberground. However, when Lag becomes a Letter Bee himself, he finds out that Gauche has disappeared. Series 1 ended with Lag finally running into Gauche after a long trail of anime original episodes focusing on Lag’s letter deliveries.

Series 2 is left with the job to explain Gauche’s disappearance and the anti-government movement called Reverse. And it actually does a pretty good job of this, whilst making sure to keep the whole heartfelt side of Letter Bee.

Since the tale of Amberground is actually focused on the plot, if your unable to connect strongly with the characters, you won’t actually be swept away in the plot. It comes down to this: If you can connect with the characters, you’ll love unraveling the story of Reverse verses the Amberground Government and how the heart is something you can never truly loose.

The majority of Letter Bee Reverse is focused on the heavy buildup from Series 1, and that allows you to actually understand the  reasoning behind the uprising of Reverse. and the anti-government movement. Yet the main character is so innocent he refuses to believe it. It leads to a battle which is no longer right verses wrong, but it focuses on the battle of the human hearts.

Even though Lag himself is slightly annoying at some times, there are several characters which can always steal the spotlight, like Niche for the fact that she’s adorable, and Jiggy Pepper for the fact that he’s seriously badass.

I really do feel like i’m repeating myself over some of these points. But I want to put emphasis on how heartwarming and feel-good this series really is.  It may have faltered a little, but it’s still one hell of a series and one of my favorites for a long time to come. The characters, the atmosphere, and the attention the creators used to make the world of Amberground come alive. It’s a must watch for any anime fan looking for something slightly different.

Alex’s Score: 10 Meeps out of 10 (Masterpiece)

Mimi’s Score: 9 Meeps out of 10 (Great)

Dusk’s Score: 9.5 Meeps out of 10 (Great)
