Hitsugi no Chaika (The Coffin Princess) – Episodes 7-9
As Captain Earth continues along its merry way, I can’t help but think that there are serious issues plaguing this show despite the studio and team’s own pedigree.
Rounding out Studio Bones’s trio of shows this spring season, Hitsugi no Chaika (The Coffin Princess) is an fantasy adventure with some rather appealing elements surrounding the storyline and its mildly intriguing characters as a whole.
Being one of the most hyped up shows for this Spring season, both by its preexisting fanbase and by Aniplex’s masterful (regardless of how annoying it is) minimalistic marketing, it’s almost unsurprising to see how divisive the reactions to the first episode were. The reasons are a little less easy to pinpoint, though, but a big part of it is perhaps how SHAFT didn’t bother at all with making this accessible for newcomers.
