This is my last overview for Autumn. Though I don't think many of the Winter shows are starting straight up so not sure what next week will bring yet. Anyway, this is my final list and tomorrow I've got my reflection post with the best and worst for the year as well as the result … Continue reading Autumn 2016 Week 13

March Comes in Like a Lion Episode 11.5

Review: Well, you should know I hate recap episodes by now so 11.5 isn't exactly going to do much for me. That said, at least the timing on this makes sense. If you didn't pick up this show in Autumn but are considering it (given it is continuing on in the Winter season), 11.5 does … Continue reading March Comes in Like a Lion Episode 11.5

Friday’s Feature: Consistently Inconsistent – Or Why I Would Struggle to Recommend Bungo Stray Dogs

I know I covered a lot of my issues with Bungo back when season 1 finished airing. In case you missed it here's a link to my review of the season. One of my biggest complaints then was the inconsistency of the series. So now that season 2 is done, has the issue been resolved? … Continue reading Friday’s Feature: Consistently Inconsistent – Or Why I Would Struggle to Recommend Bungo Stray Dogs

Flip Flappers Episode 13

Review: This episode gave me a sinking feeling fairly close to the start. While part of me just kept hoping that Flip Flappers would actually do something noteworthy other than the visual spectacle the final episode overly relied on the power of love and friendship (without offering anything interesting thematically about either) and pure coincidence. … Continue reading Flip Flappers Episode 13

Poco’s Udon World Episode 7

Review: Now that a whole bunch of other shows finished I decided to pick this one back up and try to finish it. Episode 7 is still ridiculously sweet. Souta's made the decision not to stay in Tokyo and he's adjusting to his new lifestyle and reconnecting with the people who thought for sure he … Continue reading Poco’s Udon World Episode 7

Die Hard Movie Review

Oh look, another non-anime review. Actually, this was holiday viewing because it is about the only movie everyone in my family agreed on that had a Christmas theme so here we go. Overview: John McClane has been invited to a Christmas party at the company his wife works at. While there, a group of armed … Continue reading Die Hard Movie Review

Iron Blooded Orphans Episode 37

Review: And they are still fighting the thing from the desert only due to various systems that make no sense the two main fighters are getting taken out of the fight, at least until Mikazuki decides that he doesn't much care about the consequences. I guess this was supposed to build tension and nearly taking … Continue reading Iron Blooded Orphans Episode 37

March Comes in Like a Lion Episode 11

Review: While this episode is beautiful (nothing like a fever to justify some truly fascinating visuals) given Rei is bedridden for most of it and the rest is taken up with the sisters enjoying New Year's there isn't really a lot going on this episode. Realistically, it kind of felt like a pause or the … Continue reading March Comes in Like a Lion Episode 11
