Final Review: Shouwa Monogatari TV

DISCLAIMER: Anime reviews on this blog will attempt minimal to no spoilers unless other noted. If a review seems dull or shallow, it’s because I’m trying to make sure not to go into too detail for those who are actually interested in the show before or after reading the review or those who have yet to finish the title. If you want further details, there are usually tons of reviews that can be found elsewhere on the internet. Furthermore, anime reviews in general are the sole opinion of the author writing it and thus differ across the users. There is no such thing as a “right answer” only a majority agreement. You are free to have your own opinions and thereby free to state and/or argue/debate in the comments section below or on the Fansub TV Forums. The review is not necessarily meant to serve as a recommendation but rather a personal opinion of having completed the series.

Shouwa Monogatari TV is the “full story” of the Shouwa Monogatari movie that premiered in Japan in January 2011. It is an original story that follows the Yamazaki family in Tokyo around 1964, the year of the Tokyo Olympics.

Ozma (or Ozuma) is the 60th anniversary WOWOW project with source material by Leiji Matsumoto. Matsumoto is famous for his Space Battleship Yamato, Galaxy Express, and Captain Harlock works, all of which were fantastic classic sci-fi works. Unlike those works, however, Ozma is set in a desert world that revolves around the legendary sand whale, Ozma. Ozma is a short 6 episode series that aired during the Spring 2012 anime season and was simulcasted on CrunchyRoll.
