Review: I'll get to a full series review of this shortly but I really look at endings like this and wonder about some romantic tropes that show up again and again.

Anime-Gataris Episode 12: Death By Narrator, Nonsense, and No Direction

Review: Anime-Gataris has become an increasingly convoluted and frustrating watch. Despite early indications that some catastrophe was coming, the final form it takes is incredibly random and the solution is equally non-nonsensical making for a fairly lacking finale that draws on the worst clich├ęs of poor endings including the power of friendship overcoming anything. Now, … Continue reading Anime-Gataris Episode 12: Death By Narrator, Nonsense, and No Direction
