Review: I have to say that while watching this episode I have the distinct impression I may have outgrown Cardcaptor to the point where not even the nostalgia lens made the first fifteen minutes of this episode feel like anything but dragging. We did get the initial buzz from Tomoyo who continues to know exactly … Continue reading Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card Episode 2: Tomoyo Knows What’s Important

March Comes in Like a Lion Episode 35: Here Comes The Sun

Review: This episode was adorable and emotionally stronger because even though Hina herself declares the situation over, she adds a 'probably' to the end of it. The scars of bullying remain and the fractures in the class don't magically disappear. The bullies also don't undergo some mystic transformation and see the errors of their way … Continue reading March Comes in Like a Lion Episode 35: Here Comes The Sun

Record of Grancrest War Episode 2: Some Nice Touches This Week

Junji Ito Collection Episode 2: Not Much Improvement But Setting A Tone

Review: While I know I was hoping for something a little more like true horror from this series, episode 2 reveals two more kind of twisted tales that work well enough but never really do more than just intrigue at the possibilities they may have contained.

Mitchiri Neko Episode 1: The Less Said The Better

Overview: Something about cats. Review: I'm guessing the intent of this is to teach vocabulary or something but it certainly isn't watchable even with only a three minute run time. Solid pass and moving on. Still, it is shows like this that are making me regret the decision I made to try every premiere on … Continue reading Mitchiri Neko Episode 1: The Less Said The Better
