Grimoire of Zero Episode 3

Review: Grimoire of Zero remains pretty bland. I didn't mind the episode this week and the problem of the week that the main duo dealt with, but the overall story and world still feels pretty much like it hasn't gone anywhere after the info-dumping first episode. While we get a glimpse of some of the … Continue reading Grimoire of Zero Episode 3

The Laughing Salesman Episode 4

Review: Moguro is quite a cruel person when you think about it. Neither of the characters this week particularly deserved the outcome of their story, unlike previous characters who have had some deep character flaw. Story 1 has a guy who has fallen in love at first sight but insists it has nothing to do … Continue reading The Laughing Salesman Episode 4

The Eccentric Family Season 2 Episode 3

Review: Yasaburo loves trouble. This we learned during season 1 of The Eccentric Family. However, in this episode he seems to be inviting it from every direction imaginable. Once again, we get an episode full of encounters that all seem fairly random except that Yasaburo serves as the connection between all of these people but … Continue reading The Eccentric Family Season 2 Episode 3

Alice & Zoroku Episode 4

Review: I'm really wondering what the point of most of the episode of Alice & Zoroku was. Minnie C, for whatever reason, continue to toy with and generally be cruel to Sana and after Minnie C injects her with some unidentified liquid, Sana essentially goes to some space where she meets a girl who could … Continue reading Alice & Zoroku Episode 4

Haikyuu Episodes 32 + 33

Review Episode 32: To continue with the egg anology from earlier, I think the team has turned into scrambled eggs rather than an omelet. There's a lot of focus on their evolution but they've yet to actually get it together as a team. Though, this episode also sees Tsukishima get a lot of focus, mostly … Continue reading Haikyuu Episodes 32 + 33

Granblue Fantasy Episode 4

Review: Stories like this always make me ask the same question; how does the empire even function? When every representative you meet of said empire is conspiring against every other, cruel and stupid, malicious, or crazy, it really makes you wonder why the entire empire hasn't just imploded. They haven't given us any reason for … Continue reading Granblue Fantasy Episode 4

Attack on Titan Season 2 Episode 4

Reivew: With the beast titan having climbed the wall last episode I kind of thought that having sent the titans after the group in the tower he was done. Oh no. He's hanging around to cause more problems and it is just the kind of cruelty you expect from Attack on Titan. However, rather than … Continue reading Attack on Titan Season 2 Episode 4

Killing Stalking Chapter 14

Before I get into reviewing this I want to make it clear that none of the content being reviewed in this post is suitable for children and even for adults is probably going to be confronting. Anyone who has been following the copious posts about Killing Stalking on Twitter probably already know that, but just … Continue reading Killing Stalking Chapter 14

Tuesday’s Top 5: Harem Leads

Tuesday's Top 5

It's a truth universally acknoweldged that the lead character in most harems is an empty shell designed only for self-insert purposes. And yet every now and then we'll come across a lead character in one of these shows that actually has something resembling a personality. As always, this list is entirely my own opinion and … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Harem Leads
