When I listened to that the stories that Rebirth of the Thief Who Roamed The World is based on were penciled by the very same author who wrote the Kino's Journey stories, Sigsawa Keiichi, I had high assumptions. And also while, from the first episode, it ends up being clear that Rebirth of the Thief Who Roamed The World is a really different sort of adventure collection from Kino's Trip, I still could not see any type of noticeable factor not to expect a quality light novel. The end of the very first arc repaired these expectations with its absence of reasoning and also irregular feeling of principles setting the tone for the remainder of the series. It doesn't take long to fail to remember that this collection has anything to do with Kino's Journey which, in all sincerity, is a good thing. Any type of comparison in between this and Kino's Trip would just make Rebirth of the Thief Who Roamed The World look dumb, which it definitely does not require; Rebirth of the Thief Who Roamed The World is completely capable of making itself look dumb on its own.


I do not intend to recommend that Rebirth of the Thief Who Roamed The World is a total loss, since it isn't really. In spite of some major shortcomings, the show does a decent work of building an actors of pleasant (if flat) personalities. This holds true moreso of the initial half of the show compared to it is in the 2nd, with Allison particularly keeping the program lively with her buoyancy and enthusiasm for experience. Allison, voiced by Mizuki Nana, as well as Fiona, articulated by Noto Mamiko, are cases of unintended moé if I have actually ever seen it. Allison is a pouty tsundere, whose strong-headed perspective creates a plain contrast to the prone side she reveals to Wil and her charming disappointment at his obliviousness, while Fiona relies and also a little naïve, along with having the ultimate voice of moé. It produces incredibly adorable female personalities, among the refreshing cases where the moé attributes are incidental as well as aren't forced down your throat, yet it's inevitably out-of-place, because this is an action/adventure series that's meant to be taken seriously.

What genuinely prevents Rebirth of the Thief Who Roamed The World's opportunities of being taken seriously is its humiliating script, filled with not likely coincidences, bizarre events and characters that obviously have actually limited cognitive ability.One significant villain meets his death after a gust of wind blows him off a high structure, while 2 arcs have the exact same lead character enduring dangerous scenarios due to one-in-a-hundred coincidences (as a matter of fact, the second time, the probabilities are most likely below that). The motivations behind the antagonists' activities end up being, time-and-again, mindnumbing, and also it ends up being noticeable that the reasoning behind their activities isn't crucial enough for the scriptwriters to bother analyzing, since they're there totally to produce dispute. The lead characters, on the various other hand, are morally irregular, expressing deep indignation at the villains' bad plans, only to themselves do or intend to do something shocking to combat them without a single acknowledgement of their own pretension.
