Recovery of an MMO Junkie Episodes 3 + 4: Fantastic Transition

Review Episode 3: Any concerns I had about this series were kind of put to rest during episode 3. It still isn't a perfect series but for what it seems to be trying to do it is doing it very well. The entire first half of this episode deals with Sakura and Morioka in the … Continue reading Recovery of an MMO Junkie Episodes 3 + 4: Fantastic Transition

Death Note Series Review: Not Quite Cat and Mouse

Overview: I seriously can't believe I hadn't reviewed this anime already. I was probably holding it off for a special occasion and the lead up to Halloween works for me. Plus, having watched the Netflix movie recently the anime was on my mind so I rewatched the first half of it again so now seems … Continue reading Death Note Series Review: Not Quite Cat and Mouse

Juni Taisen Episode 4: Nobody Died, Though My Interest Took A Hit

Review: From the first episode with the Boar, this show has been a little bit peculiar. For all the good qualities it has, the one thing it has failed to do is grab my attention. The third episode with the Chicken came the closest because her character had a little bit of humour about her, … Continue reading Juni Taisen Episode 4: Nobody Died, Though My Interest Took A Hit

Land of the Lustrous Episodes 2 + 3: It’s Like Someone Broke My Pet Rock

Review Episode 2: I cannot believe how attached I've gotten to Phos in only two episodes but the end of this episode was a little heart breaking even if I don't think this is going to be permanent - the earlier conversation would suggest transformation though it will be interesting to see where they go. … Continue reading Land of the Lustrous Episodes 2 + 3: It’s Like Someone Broke My Pet Rock

Friday’s Feature: Facing Fear – The Unseen Is Always Scarier

Welcome to the last feature in October and the last horror focused feature for awhile. If you missed the previous posts I've looked at visuals, the victims, and how characters can make the audience feel the fear, and today I am looking at whether the seen or the unseen is scarier. Now every horror fan … Continue reading Friday’s Feature: Facing Fear – The Unseen Is Always Scarier

200 Word Anime: Black Clover Episode 4

Weekend Otaku and I continue our thoughts on Black Clover as Yuno and Asta take the exam to become magic knights. If you missed them, please check out our previous posts. Karandi's Review: Asta's presence was somewhat diluted this week through the addition of other candidates for the magic knights and the captains. That, and … Continue reading 200 Word Anime: Black Clover Episode 4

Sengoku Night Blood Episode 4: Heroine Gets a Fever,There’s An Original Development

Review: I didn't actually dislike this episode, but I think it highlights the fact that this show is unashamed of what it is and it isn't trying to reach beyond that. Every move and every singe character is at this point predictable. Even the two characters who act like they hate each other but actually … Continue reading Sengoku Night Blood Episode 4: Heroine Gets a Fever,There’s An Original Development

Code Realize ~Guardian of Rebirth~ Episode 3: Well I Guess We Had To Expect Vampires

Review: It didn't really click last week given the nature of this show but I guess when you introduce Van Helsing into your mix of characters, having vampires actually be real and show up in the story just makes sense. And then making Cardia see herself as the lonely monster reflected by the orphan vampire … Continue reading Code Realize ~Guardian of Rebirth~ Episode 3: Well I Guess We Had To Expect Vampires

Evil or Live Episode 3: I Didn’t Think It Was Possible, But It Is Getting Worse

Review: This show is not good. It didn't start well, but at least had an interesting kind of premise even if the execution was questionable, but at episode 3 I just have to admit that this is going to be kind of terrible. I also have to admit I kind of need to know how … Continue reading Evil or Live Episode 3: I Didn’t Think It Was Possible, But It Is Getting Worse
