Announcing the Katekyo Hitman Reborn! Retrospective

Akira Amano’s Katekyo Hitman Reborn! is one of my all-time favourite Anime.

If you’ve been a follower of my blog for a while, you’ve probably seen me mention my love for the series at some point or another, most likely during a ramble that had absolutely nothing to do with Hitman Reborn.

It happens!

That being said unlike many of my other favourite series, I feel that I’ve never really done a satisfactory job of explaining why Reborn! is actually in my Top 10 Anime, and in all honesty, this is because I’ve never been really too sure of the answer myself.

Which is why I’ve decided to embark on a journey to find out. …And I figured I’d take you all along for the ride!



So, over what will be an unspecified amount of time, I’m going to do a series retrospective focusing on Katekyo Hitman Reborn!, where I’ll be analysing and dissecting each of its individual story arcs, in their own separate post, to help explain why this show is so special to me and why I think it does everything it does so well.

These will likely be very in depth, and quite the read, but I’m planning to keep writing other, less lengthy posts in between these long, retrospective posts. I’ve got quite a few in the works as we speak.

I’m not sure if this new idea will actually be entertaining, nor am I sure how well it will “work” as a series in general, but if it does work, I hope to apply it to other Anime series as well, perhaps even other mediums too.

So it’s official. The Katekyo Hitman Reborn! series retrospective is a thing that’s happening. I’m not sure exactly when the first post will be out, but I can assure you all it’s being written as we speak.

So stay tuned for Part 1: “The significance of Katekyo Hitman Reborn’s Daily Life arc”

Stay tuned!

  1. I’m really looking forward to this. I love reborn. Weird fact, i had misread that it was from the same creator as Psycho Pass so I picked it up expecting a similar type of show…. Yeah…

  2. What a great idea to talk about a shounen show that did not gain growing popularity as much as the fandoms of those so-called over rated shounen series. KHR was one of those anime I really enjoyed watching. I’m looking forward to your post.

    1. It’s a real shame to be honest.

      While Reborn! did take off for a while and became fairly popular, it was quickly forgotten about once it ended, and has now faded in obscurity, which is a real shame because it was something really special.

      I’m hoping to convince people to try it out with this retrospective however, and celebrate Reborn! for what it is: something great.

      Part 1 is coming very soon and is half done. Stay tuned!
