There are very few words for how disappointing these final two episodes are. Mostly because this demonstrates an incredible lack of either planning to end the story at a reasonable rest point OR lack of care for an audience that will be left without anything resembling closure and no announcement of follow up. While not … Continue reading Frankenstein Family Episodes 11 + 12
Right from episode one of Steins;Gate 0 I kind of sat on the fence about whether or not I was on board with this most recent addition to the Steins;Gate anime world. Overall it was an up and down experience but now we come to the final review and I have to figure out exactly how I feel about this show.
When I first started Angolmois: Record of Mongol Invasion, I wasn't really expecting much. Still there's definitely something about those first episodes that grab your attention and even though the show has its flaws, I'm still pretty happy with the watch through.
While this anime isn't exactly going to change the world it was perhaps one of the more fun titles from the Summer Season. If you like a bit of fun and action with vampires, werewolves and other things that go bump in the night and you'll probably find something to enjoy in Phantom in the Twilight.
Even by those dangerously low standards, I would find it incredibly hard to recommend The Master of Ragnarok & Blesser or Einherjar. The sheer number of things this anime does to shoot itself in the foot along the way is nearly mind-boggling and that is before you get to a final episode that just left me shaking my head and wondering why on earth I'd just given the show three months of my life in episodic reviews.

Somewhere along the line that turned into Snow turning into a half-dog monster and running into Sumire (the girl Tanisu has been crushing on). After saving Sumire from getting dirty clothes and lending … Continue reading Frankenstein Family Episodes 9 + 10
With the cliff-hanger ending of episode 6 to be resolved and the issue of whether or not the kids can trust the landlord, episodes 7 and 8 manage to be pretty interesting even while not a lot actually happens in Frankenstein Family. I'm not a big fan of flash backs during dramatic moments given I … Continue reading Frankenstein Family Episodes 7 + 8
Things are getting hot this week in Cells at Work as the body face dehydration and heat stroke. However, in amongst all the sweaty red blood cells and adorable platelets, how was the actual episode?
What started as an alright modern take on a fairy tale slowly became something that just wasn't very fun to watch. So what went wrong and what did it do right? Let's have a look at 100 Sleeping Princes and the Kingdom of Dreams. Review: My first impressions of this series were not hugely enthusiastic … Continue reading 100 Sleeping Princes and the Kingdom of Dreams Series Review: Meandering Fluff
If you missed it, earlier today the best of the season came out so if you would rather celebrate the successes of the season than wallow in, or jeer at, the misfires I recommend you check it out. In the meantime, a reminder that worst anime of the season is still an anime good enough … Continue reading Get Your Tomatoes Ready Because Here We Have the Worst Anime of the Summer 2018 Season
