Pet Episode 1 – Reserving Judgment

Pet isn't a show that gathered much buzz before it's release. And I get it. The first episode was fairly by the numbers psychological thriller that seemed to be trying extra hard to be grim! I assume at least some of that comes from the source material. It's not necessarily a broad appeal anime. But … Continue reading Pet Episode 1 – Reserving Judgment

Update on The Blog

This is essentially a watered down version of an update I gave to patrons a few days ago.

Kono Oto Tomare! Review Episode 13

The Final Sound Kono Oto Tomare! Episode 13 Apparently there’s more of this coming at a later time, but for me, this is the final episode I’ll watch (I do reserve the right to change my mind in a few months but for now I’m over it).

At Last, The Sea Attack on Titan S3 P2 Episode 10 It is rare that I feel Eren is being the realist of the group, but this final episode of season three, part two of Attack on Titan really shows how grounded he has become after repeated tragedies.
