Chain Chronicle – The Light of Haecceitas Episode 12

Review: Hey, after 12 episodes I finally spelt the name right on the first go instead of the fifth. There's an achievement. Anyway, this ends pretty much exactly the way you would expect given the story so far. It's never done more than be a standard sword and sorcery fantasy and the ending, in all … Continue reading Chain Chronicle – The Light of Haecceitas Episode 12

Vote For Your Favourite Anime of Winter 2017

Hey everyone, we've pretty much made it to the end of the Winter 2017 anime season. I'd love to know what your best of the season was (my only criteria for best is the show you found the most entertaining). I decided this year that since I've actually started the blog at the beginning if … Continue reading Vote For Your Favourite Anime of Winter 2017

Blue Exorcist Episode 37

Review: I can't help but think this entire season was just filler. Other than Rin learning to control his flames (which took way too long) and the other students finally getting over Rin being the son of Satan (though for some reason they don't apply that same reasoning to Yukio) we've watched this whole season … Continue reading Blue Exorcist Episode 37

Hand Shakers Episode 11

Review: So some of the missing pieces were explained, through a heavily narrated way too long flashback sequence. You know when ACCA decided to give us the backstory, they gave it to us from the perspective of an interesting character and we gained more of an understanding of the world and the characters we were … Continue reading Hand Shakers Episode 11

ACCA Episode 11

Review: ACCA has been a great watch and while part of me wondered if the final episodes could deliver after the last of the mysteries seemed revealed, episode 11 answers the question with a resounding 'yes'. Everything about this episode worked and continues to tie the plot together while continuing to give us highly nuanced … Continue reading ACCA Episode 11

Tales of Zestiria the X Season 2 Episode 11

Review (spoilers, no attempt to not reveal information): Possibly the whole Dezel sacrificing himself to blow away the dragons so that Sorey isn't forced to either attempt mass purification (which cannot end well) or to accept that maybe shooting them is the only option could have been dramatic and moving. Certainly his farewell to Rose … Continue reading Tales of Zestiria the X Season 2 Episode 11

elDLIVE Episode 11

Review: There's actually a half decent set-up in this episode with the villains demanding Chuta get handed over and the spy in elDLIVE (though it seems like it is obvious who that is unless they are just playing us). However, as always, elDLIVE decides to strangle itself by spending the first third of the episode … Continue reading elDLIVE Episode 11

Iron Blooded Orphans Episode 47

Review: This is like watching a collision in slow motion. You know the impact is coming and you know it is going to be bad but you're just kind of inching toward it. This episode saw them finally arrive back on Mars but with no allies and no money, Tekkadan really has no chance. Zack … Continue reading Iron Blooded Orphans Episode 47

Chain Chronicle – The Light of Haecceitas Episode 11

Review: This is all pretty stock standard final battle material now. Characters who have been at odds or set up as opposites face each other and there are a lot of extras getting knocked off (not that it matters given the black king seems to be able to auto generate soldiers at will). It isn't … Continue reading Chain Chronicle – The Light of Haecceitas Episode 11

March Comes in Like a Lion Episode 22

Review: Rei's journey has been a fairly fantastic ride to follow and I love that in this final episode we get the analogy of his life playing shogi compared to being on a train, continuing onward without a definite destination. The imagery in this show has almost always worked well (with a handful of exceptions) … Continue reading March Comes in Like a Lion Episode 22
