What greater horror than realising an anime that initially promises potential will not fulfil any of it? Here is Afterlost, a champion at broken promises and fairly dull story-telling.
This was an anime that I really loved early on but Demon Slayer has some tonal inconsistencies and pacing issues that certainly hinder truly just enjoying this ride.
Tohru Honda has undeniably had a hard life and yet she's never lost her smile. Her kindness and love are exactly what the members of the Soma family need as they deal with their own personal demons. As a reboot of a classic series, how does the 2019 version of Fruits Basket hold up?
I said at the time that Midnight Occult Civil Servants was on that despite not being a particularly spectacular watch it was an anime I wouldn't mind more of.

These guys are breaking into a server room so Geek can do … Continue reading Afterlost Review Episode 11
You voted and here we are. It is time for the announcement of what the reader's picked as the anime of the season.
The Perfectly Silly Conclusion To A Silly Story Amazing Stranger Episode 12 Okay, there was a point to showing us how the anime ended last week and they did actually use that to bring us a fairly interesting conclusion to the story of the moving figurines. It wasn’t amazing and like everything else in this … Continue reading Amazing Stranger Review Episode 12
The Battle is Won/The Battle Begins Demon Slayer Episode 13 It is interesting when you are both right and wrong about where something is going. I wondered last week if Nezuko was going to get into the house and if she did whether one of the other demon slayers would attack her. Well, she didn’t … Continue reading Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Review Episode 13
