To start off the A to Z blogging challenge, we’ll be reviewing 26 anime that I think every writer should watch to better their own craft.
Abenobashi Mahou Shoutengai (or Magical Shopping Arcade Abenobashi, for those of us who speak English.) is a comedic romp through alternate universes, starring a young boy and girl. The story begins in summer, and the entirety of it is a character exploration of the main character.
Why Writers should watch this show: The sheer amount of plot that goes into this story is amazing. Watch it multiple times, and each time you’ll see some new bit of foreshadowing, some new plot point that you didn’t know in the first viewing.
Warnings: Fanservice, Multiple universes, String theory, Preteen crushes, and adorable hijinks.
