18if Episode 12: I’m Feeling This Was A Little Anti-Climatic


This kind of seems like 18if has finally pulled everything together and is moving toward the final showdown between Haruto and Eve in the dream world, which means it really should be feeling exciting. We learn this episode where Haruto is in the real world (though no actual hints about how or why) and we also finally find and save the professor’s sister. That’s two big mysteries from the series solved and yet it all just felt kind of ho-hum.


What made it worse was the show seemed to be trying to set up various characters in a sinister light in the real world but that has no weight given everything of interest that’s happened in this story has happened inside the dreams. More importantly, even the witch that died came back this episode which means even death lost its weight and importance in this particular story.


While it is coming together, it is more working on paper than in reality. The feeling that you should have when watching this episode just isn’t there and the confrontation with Eve that will occur next week probably won’t fix the problem.

Thanks for reading.

  1. I was legitimately surprised that Haruto was real. Also, the dead girl apparently helping out and such was unexpected. The rest of the episode was kind of meh but I did like when it rained blood all over the bad-guy-from-Gundam church guy.

  2. Hmmm, I feel like I don’t see you post very many positive reviews! Which is fine. It’s just something I’ve noticed 🙂

    Or it’s not that there aren’t some positive things you acknowledge, but you don’t seem to go absolutely CRAZY for what you’re currently watching.

    1. This season has been pretty dull for me. Which is fine as there have been some really good anime seasons previously where I’ve had lots more shows in the must watch or usually entertaining category. I’m kind of looking forward to the new season starting because I’m really hoping there’s something more to my liking.

        1. I agree my reviews have been pretty negative lately and even I’m kind of over it. I love anime and I enjoy celebrating it but my watch list this season just didn’t work out. Still at least there was My Hero Academia and Princess Principal so the season wasn’t a waste.
