Alright, peeps, gather ’round. I just sacrificed precious sleep hours
because my jobs kills me to binge the premiere of “Frieren: Beyond Journey’s End,” and damn, do I have thoughts. First off, I’ve read the manga. Yep, I’m that nerd. (Okay, Only volume 1 and 2, but let me act cool.) And seeing it on screen? It was even better than I expected tbh! Shocking, I know.
The visuals? Stunning. There’s this scene where Frieren’s on a cliff, and honestly, if I had a view like that, I might actually go outside (even tho, maybe not). And her magic moment in the forest? If I had that kind of power, I’d probably just use it to find my lost
will to live socks. But hey, to each their own.
Then there’s this cute scene where Frieren is in a river, reflecting under the sun. The water’s shimmer, the soft glow of the sun on her face – it’s the kind of moment that makes you go, “I need that in my life” Definitely screenshot-worthy, if you ask me.
The story is deep, and not in the “I’m 14, depressed, so cool and this is deep” way. It’s about time, memories, and, well, feeling old. And Frieren’s bond with Fern? It’s like when you meet someone and think, “Ah, another weirdo like me.”
For me this topic actually does cut deep. The longer you think about it, the scarier it gets aswell. We all age, and we know there will be an end, but this anime hits it different, idk how to describe it, but it got me right in the feels.
It might feeled rushed for some, but in my opinion it was perfect like that! More build-up would have been to slow for me.
The music? Absolute banger. The opening song by YOASOBI is so catchy, it’s probably going to haunt my dreams. Not that I’m complaining.
But here’s the thing: this isn’t just another medieval anime. This cuts way deeper. As a manga reader, seeing this world come alive is like running into an old friend and realizing they got hot.
In a nutshell, “Frieren: Beyond Journey’s End” is the kind of show that makes you question your life choices, but in a good way. If you haven’t dived in yet, well, let’s just say you’re missing out on more than my fantastic sense of humor (I’m so sorry.). So go watch it, and let’s bond over our shared lack of
will to live sleep. 🌟
