Sengoku Night Blood Episode 10: And She Goes Back to Hideyoshi

Review: This really is just an elaborate game of pass the parcel that we've been watching over these ten weeks. Yazuki starts with Hideyoshi and has literally just been passed around through every other character's strong hold and now she's going back to Hideyoshi. It really just feels fairly empty and pointless at this stage. … Continue reading Sengoku Night Blood Episode 10: And She Goes Back to Hideyoshi

200 Word Anime: Black Clover Episode 11

Weekend Otaku and I continue our coverage of Black Clover as we move on from the fight and... go shopping? Check out our previous posts if you have missed them. Karandi's Review: What little hope I had left for this series kind of shrivelled and died over the course of attempting to watch episode 11. … Continue reading 200 Word Anime: Black Clover Episode 11

UQ Holder Episode 11: Backstory and Plot Contrivances

Review: UQ Holder frantically takes us a journey down memory lane courtesy of some poorly explained magical shenanigans in this episode (mid-fight mind you) in order to hopefully plug some of the plot holes that have been threatening to undermine what might be a perfectly silly fight sequence (given it kind of starts this episode … Continue reading UQ Holder Episode 11: Backstory and Plot Contrivances

Code Realize ~Guardian of Rebirth~ Episode 10: I Guess We’re Building to a Climax

Review: I guess this is what happens when your story has everything it needs and yet still falls pretty flat. While some people might really be enjoying this I just found this episode (much like most of the series so far) incredibly paint by numbers and just kind of soulless. We have the heroes doing … Continue reading Code Realize ~Guardian of Rebirth~ Episode 10: I Guess We’re Building to a Climax

Anime-Gataris Episode 10: It’s the Power of Friendship/Teamwork/Plot Convenience

Review: While this episode certainly did better than last week in that it delivered some actual plot progression and a nice simple problem to solve (Principal's door is locked and we need a code to unlock it), there's still plenty to wonder about how the show got to this place. More specifically, why they felt … Continue reading Anime-Gataris Episode 10: It’s the Power of Friendship/Teamwork/Plot Convenience

Land of the Lustrous Episode 10: Bort, Phos & Dia

Review: I was really happy to see some of the old Phos back this week. They certainly are still not the Phos we met at the start of the season, but they have definitely not lost all of their spunk which was kind of a welcome sight. I certainly had a good laugh when she … Continue reading Land of the Lustrous Episode 10: Bort, Phos & Dia

Girls’ Last Tour Episode 10: Not Answers But Insight

Review: Girls' Last Tour continues to avoid the trap of exposition dumps as it doesn't explain in detail how the world the girls are exploring came to be. Instead, we continue to be immersed in the world, gaining some insights as we go along and being left with many questions to ponder. It helps that … Continue reading Girls’ Last Tour Episode 10: Not Answers But Insight

Dies Irae Episode 9: Disturbing

Review: I'm going to keep this super brief because I'm pretty over this show. Truly disturbing birth sequence followed by some overly emotional drivel on the roof before people show up and fight. End of episode as new bad guy shows up, steps on own ally and then challenges hero, who was already losing, to … Continue reading Dies Irae Episode 9: Disturbing

March Comes in Like a Lion Episode 31: Lessons Learned

Review: I really loved this episode for so many reasons but I'm going to try to see if I can keep this post from getting out of control. However, other than being a fantastic continuation on Hina's story and closing the newcomers tournament story, what episode 31 of March Comes in Like a Lion does … Continue reading March Comes in Like a Lion Episode 31: Lessons Learned

Kino’s Journey Episode 10: Pointless

Review: You know, I don't mind a story ending with 'and then they all died' as long as it feels like there was some message or point the story was trying to get across. Other than they stubbornly won't evacuate, I really got nothing out of this and to be perfectly frank this whole episode … Continue reading Kino’s Journey Episode 10: Pointless
