Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

This highly anticipated anime series is a delightful tribute to the 90s and early 2000s with its sly references to flip phones and Sega Genesis. Uncle From Another World offers subtle comedy that will bring about chuckles in the generation that came of age around the time Takafumi's uncle fell into a coma. The dynamic between Takafumi and his uncle hooks viewers and contributes to the suspense. Anime fans will likely love it. For those who are not into anime, this show may be the way they fall in love with a new genre.
