Tales of Zestiria The X Season 2 Episode 13

Review: While this final episode is not bad when compared to the rest of the show, it was definitely hurt by the extended break between episode 12 and 13. The momentum (what little this show had) was definitely gone and it took me awhile to remember exactly where we'd left the characters and then I … Continue reading Tales of Zestiria The X Season 2 Episode 13


Iron Blooded Orphans Episode 50

Review: This ends exactly as you would expect though I will give them points for one or two surprises (such as Ride's future which I didn't see coming). Still, any potential character growth for Mikazuki ends rather abruptly mid-episode much as it should given what they were up against. However, the general tone of the … Continue reading Iron Blooded Orphans Episode 50

Iron Blooded Orphans Episode 49

Review: Orga's death hits Tekkadan hard but Mikazuki actually takes some initiative, even if he is just using Orga's words to rally the others followed by the blunt threat of violence. I'm not sure if this counts as development or not but it is more proactive than we have seen Mikazuki before. Spoilers below. Someone … Continue reading Iron Blooded Orphans Episode 49

The Best of Winter 2017

Earlier today, I shared the Worst of Winter 2017 (both my opinion and the view of the readers). If you didn't check it out, make sure you have a look later and let me know your view. Meanwhile, this post is celebrating all the good things that happened during the 2017 Winter season. My Favourite … Continue reading The Best of Winter 2017

The Worst of Winter 2017

Later today my Best of Winter post will come out and I'll celebrate all those wonderful moments that got people talking (or at least entertained me during the past three months). But that is not his post. This post shares the worst and the lowest moments of the season as well as the reader's choice … Continue reading The Worst of Winter 2017

Hand Shakers Episode 12

Review: This show and I do not mesh but this is the toned down version of the rant because the first draft was unpublishable in every sense of the word. So, let's just fight, a lot, with attacks we've never seen before and don't know the rules of so don't really have any reason to … Continue reading Hand Shakers Episode 12

ACCA Episode 12

Review: While I suspect not all will be thrilled with the way this resolved, for me it was the perfect way to end this story. At all times, things have been pretty laid back and resolved without much in the way of violence, and for the coup to end the way it did works perfectly … Continue reading ACCA Episode 12

elDLIVE Episode 12

Review: Amazingly enough we didn't get any kind of twist. The spy was Vega. We do get an angsty reason why and in the end we save him but seriously for a season finale having the recently introduced character turn out to be a traitor and call that a wrap on the season is just … Continue reading elDLIVE Episode 12

Tales of Zestiria the X Season 2 Episode 12

Review: You know that feeling you get when you think something is a final and then it isn't? I kind of got that this week. There just doesn't seem any reason to stretch this another episode but stretch it we will. But hey, we finally got back story on Michael, the former shepherd, and how … Continue reading Tales of Zestiria the X Season 2 Episode 12

Iron Blooded Orphans Episode 48

Review: Please note: Major episode spoilers below - no attempt to conceal details. There was a lot of Orga focus in this episode, for good reason. What I particularly liked is that Orga's screen time didn't suddenly advance, and other than one flashback (which we've seen before from a different perspective) we didn't dwell on … Continue reading Iron Blooded Orphans Episode 48
