I swear this anime comes with subliminal messages because it is so incredibly relaxing to watch. What did you think of the second episode? There was an indescribably feeling (that I'm still going to try and describe) of absolute relaxation that hit me while watching this. From the slow pace of the interactions between characters, … Continue reading Rokuhoudou Yotsuiro Biyori Episode 2: Calming With Just a Hint of Drama
Pushing ordinary set-ups into the realm of the absurd, this anime isn't great but it does make me smile. What do you think so far? Subaru has a small crisis this week when he's forced out of his normal cockpit and into the Captain's Daughter's overly pink sanctuary. This leads to an explosion, a brief … Continue reading Space Battleship Tiramisu Episode 3: Reality Is Cruel
They seem to be working as a team, but there are so many horrible people here all after their own goal. Seems like nothings changed with Tokyo Ghoul. I know this anime is just getting going and it is building to an operation that looks like it might kick these into motion, but I couldn't … Continue reading Tokyo Ghoul:Re Episode 3: The Bleak Picture Continues
Despite the missteps, this anime has something that makes it oddly interesting to watch. What did you think of episode 3? It is quite clear that Tsutsui isn't the ideal male protagonist. He isn't even a particularly likeable or sympathetic geek character. Yet for all his faults, there's something kind of interesting about watching such … Continue reading 3D Kanojo: Real Girl Episode 3: The Outsider’s Perspective
This anime shows of some fairly contrary characterisation in its third episode, but even then doesn't really manage to raise the excitement beyond kind of interesting. What did you think of the episode? I didn't mind this third episode as it carried us through more of the hidden, realm gave us more of a … Continue reading Kakuriyo No Yadomeshi Episode 3: Watchable But Nothing Exciting
How many weeks can an anime milk the joke of a team of heroes uninterested in the villains and the lame monsters and have it remain amusing? Cute High Earth Defense Club Happy Kiss is definitely going to try to find out as it runs this joke ragged. Maybe I'm just go to show my … Continue reading Cute High Earth Defense Club Happy Kiss Episode 2: The Hero’s Indifference
The unimpressive continues, though this anime kind of looks like it will pick up as it goes along, or at least it is amusing me. What did you think of episode 2? This episode picks up after the vampire guy stuck his tongue in her mouth last episode. Turns out he's only half-vampire (seems like … Continue reading Devils’ Line Episode 2: We’re Just Skipping Over the Falling In Love Part
How many morals and messages can one anime episode pack in? GeGeGe No Kitaro episode 3 is working hard to find out that answer. Episode 3 of this anime maintains the cute and family friendly version of horror with just enough tension to make it interesting without ever actually crossing into disturbing (unless yokai disturb … Continue reading GeGeGe No Kitaro Episode 3: Aww, He Can Make Human Friends Too.
Other than tall girl enjoying playing gun game as short avatar, is there actually a plot in this anime? What happens when you take an anime focused on life or death in an alternative reality and instead cast an insecure girl and take out the life and death part? Well, probably this. LLENN is adorable … Continue reading Sword Art Online Alternative: Gun Gale Online Episode 2: So, No Plot Then?
The rules of WIXOSS have never been overly clear in any version of this anime, but as seasons converge they seem to be trying to set a few things down in stone. Again, this episode was heavily focused on prior events but it isn't just walking us through prior seasons. It is genuinely giving us … Continue reading Lostorage Conflated Wixoss Episode 2: There’s Just No Escape
