Code: Realize ~Guardian of Rebirth~ Episode 12: A Neat Package

Review: I know I complain when things don't resolve, but this was a very neat conclusion. Finis, father, Cardia's poison, her relationship with Lupin, everything tied up in a pretty little bow. I guess that's kind of been this show from start to finish though. It just kind of did its thing never particularly well … Continue reading Code: Realize ~Guardian of Rebirth~ Episode 12: A Neat Package

Land of the Lustrous Episode 12: Phos’ Resolve

Review: While this isn't a perfect ending by any means with time wasted on the introduced character who ultimately contributes little to this season (though probably serves some greater purpose later) and overall no actual answers to the greater mysteries of this series, I couldn't help but feel satisfied by how this show came back … Continue reading Land of the Lustrous Episode 12: Phos’ Resolve

Dies Irae Episode 11: I’m Done

Review: While I know there are more episodes of this to come out online, I held out until the season finished and now I am done with this absolute mess of a show. It has never made sense and never improved. It is just full of pointless fights, random powers, and lots of speeches and … Continue reading Dies Irae Episode 11: I’m Done

Recovery of an MMO Junkie OVA (Episode 11)

Review: Recovery of an MMO Junkie didn't really need this episode and clearly it was aware of it. So rather than pretend to be an 11 episode series, they released this two part add on as an OVA and to be honest that made it easier to swallow. Basically, Morioka and Sakurai are charming and … Continue reading Recovery of an MMO Junkie OVA (Episode 11)

Kino’s Journey Episode 12: A Fittingly Bland End

Review: We're seriously going to end this fairly dull anime with an episode about Kino getting chased by sheep? Really? This is really what you want the audience to remember? And yet, I can't say I'm overly surprised given this show hasn't really done much of anything since the first handful of episodes that really … Continue reading Kino’s Journey Episode 12: A Fittingly Bland End

March Comes in Like a Lion Episode 33: I Kind Of Feel Bad For Shimada

Review: I couldn't help but feel sorry for Shimada while watching this episode. He is tenacious, hard working, dedicated and yet in the absence of any flash or good-looks his winning the right to challenge for a title is seen as undesirable by the club. While I can sympathise with the commercial nature of sponsorship … Continue reading March Comes in Like a Lion Episode 33: I Kind Of Feel Bad For Shimada

Our Love Has Always Been 10 Centimetres Apart Episode 5

Review: For the first time I really found Haruki an annoying character. I kind of get what they were going for with him facing a crisis and losing sight of his dream, but to be honest it really felt like he was a sulking child for a lot of this episode. Glad they didn't drag … Continue reading Our Love Has Always Been 10 Centimetres Apart Episode 5

Sengoku Night Blood Episode 11: Once a Damsel in Distress

Review: I think what continues to bug me the most about this show is there is actually an interesting premise here, buried underneath the inane chatter that clutters most of the screen time. This alternative view of the warring states could have been interesting if the show had cared to actually examine it or even … Continue reading Sengoku Night Blood Episode 11: Once a Damsel in Distress

King’s Game Episode 12 – The Dramatic Conclusion (Or Maybe Not)

Review (heavy spoilers): It will be genuinely impossible to review this episode without spoilers so if you want to be surprised by the conclusion (well, don't watch the show for one but also maybe pass on reading this post until later). We are down to our last five contestants in this game of death and … Continue reading King’s Game Episode 12 – The Dramatic Conclusion (Or Maybe Not)

UQ Holder Episode 12: They Finished The Fight But Not The Story

Review: Last week they left us with a fight between Tota and his friends and Negi and his friends in the stadium and this week kind of concludes that fight. Kind of as in the bad guys leave but that's about all the resolution you are going to get in this series. Still, if you … Continue reading UQ Holder Episode 12: They Finished The Fight But Not The Story
