English Dub Review: Sonny Boy “Two Years Vacation”

 

Overview:

Nagara and Mizuho make it back. Everyone has another version of themself here but are they the same? Mizuho doesn’t remember Nagara. What was this two-year vacation?

Our Take:

Well, I wouldn’t say that Sonny Boy makes as much sense as I would have liked but I still enjoyed it. I feel like this episode was very bittersweet and to be honest, I am still processing it. I am not a huge fan of everyone getting what they want except for the main character. I understand that is how real life often goes but it’s still unsatisfying to get from a story in my opinion. Depending on your take of Nozomi as a character she might not have gotten what she wanted either but that also depends on whether you think that Nozomi is even Nozomi in the first place. Confusing right??

I think the biggest thing I am going to take from Sonny Boy is how trippy it was coupled with the fun and simple animation style they used. I really enjoyed the show and do recommend it but I am really excited to jump into it with the season review I am doing. It was a fitting end but I am a little sad to see it go.
