Sengoku Night Blood Episode 8: Pass the Parcel?

Review: So Yuzuki has now officially met all of the important characters as she's been taken for visits, been abducted, found, abducted again, abducted from the abductors, etc, etc, etc. I'm not sure that any of this makes for a plot that makes sense but at least someone finally put together the basic point that … Continue reading Sengoku Night Blood Episode 8: Pass the Parcel?

Baldur’s Gate 2 Update

I only recently did a post about what I was playing recently but this weekend (while trying to unwind and de-stress) I had a novel experience. If you've never played Baldur's Gate then you probably don't know that in the game you assemble a party as you wander about and you can change party members … Continue reading Baldur’s Gate 2 Update

Code: Realize ~Guardian of Rebirth~ Episode 8: The Enemy of My Enemy

Review: For an episode that actually had a pretty dramatic ending (predictable but still dramatic) the rest of this episode just kind of felt like it was going through the motions. London is burning, soldiers are rebelling, and Cardia and Lupin return, reunite with the others and decide to save the Queen. I don't know … Continue reading Code: Realize ~Guardian of Rebirth~ Episode 8: The Enemy of My Enemy

Tale of the Waning Moon Volume 2 Manga Review

Just a warning to start that the contents of this manga are not suited to everyone containing explicit (and sometimes graphic) sexual non-consensual relationships between male characters. While I have included no images below, the story content will be discussed. My review of Volume 1 can be found here. Review: Well despite the warning there, … Continue reading Tale of the Waning Moon Volume 2 Manga Review

Anime-Gataris Episode 8: It’s a Swing and a Miss

Review: One thing that has become painfully obvious during the mid-season of Anime-Gataris is that this show is at its best when it is a straight parody of other anime or when the characters are passionately engaged in an anime discussion dropping references left and right. Devoid of either of those ideas, the story itself … Continue reading Anime-Gataris Episode 8: It’s a Swing and a Miss

Clannad and Clannad After Story Series Review

Overview: It seems really unlikely that you don't already know what Clannad is about but just in case, the story mostly follows Tomoya who runs into Nagisa on her way to school talking to herself. Seems she is a bit worried because she's had to repeat a year due to ill health and she's worried … Continue reading Clannad and Clannad After Story Series Review

UQ Holder Episode 9: What Does Anyone Expect From an Episode Called “Love, Baths and Vigorous Exercise”?

Review: This episode begins and ends with Tota seeking answers from Evangeline and getting at least one decent revelation by episode's end. Which I'm guessing is meant to make us think the rest of this is worth our time. I'm just not sure I'm in for a random bath sequences with B list characters who … Continue reading UQ Holder Episode 9: What Does Anyone Expect From an Episode Called “Love, Baths and Vigorous Exercise”?

Girls’ Last Tour Episode 8: What Is Left Behind?

Review: This week we get three short stories in the episode where the girls first visit a grave yard of sorts and start thinking about what people have left behind. Yuuri, as usual, has some interesting insights which she then contradicts with her next breath, but she's still amusing and thought provoking. I also like … Continue reading Girls’ Last Tour Episode 8: What Is Left Behind?

Tuesday’s Top 5: Non-Weapon Items Used as Weapons

Alright, this list could literally go on forever because anime has used a lot of items that we usually don't consider weapons in fights. Cards, coins, crosses, hair pins... You name it and some anime character somewhere has attempted to weaponise it (probably successfully). I narrowed this list down to characters and items that were … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Non-Weapon Items Used as Weapons
