Episode 2 confirms the worst suspicions about Dawin's Game as we continue to have a plot that has no interest in enlightening the viewer or even suggesting that there's a reason for anything and characters who act inconsistently. All and all this is one title that looks to remain consistently trash for the season yet if you're okay with that it might still be semi-enjoyable.
BOFURI is the kind of silliness that just works because it does. Whether it continues to entertain for an entire season remains to be seen but for now at least this first episode is mostly harmless fun.
Double opening episodes can be quite effective when done right but here it just felt like the time was dragging. Which is kind of a shame because in twenty minutes the content delivered here could have been reasonably interesting but instead they gave the viewer plenty of time to think about all the things this anime could have done better. Darwin's Game isn't dead in the water just yet but I'm not expecting much from it.
This pair of episodes of Special 7 deals with Belle's kidnapping and then launches us into full on backstory mode as the group are tasked with transporting a terrorist turned witness who just happens to be responsible for the mess at the airport that seems to link all our character's tragic backstories. Of course we're left on a cliffhanger so I guess I'll find out what happens next when I finally get to the next episode.
Wait what, two episodes!! How is that fair?!?. I can hardly make reasonable posts for one episode now tow!!!! And I bet you can imagine what this did to my screencaps post! Phfffth...two episodes. Who does that?! Am I the only one who really liked it? What I Thought Would Happen Well, I certainly didn't … Continue reading Fire Force Episode 23 & 24 – 12 Years Ago
I think these last few episodes of Fire Force should really have been watched in one sitting. Don't get me wrong, I am enjoying them individually but I feel like they are telling one integral bit of story, almost like a single scene. You can see it in the visuals, I have my gallery post … Continue reading Fire Force Episode 22 – Kill ’em With Kindness
The end of the season is really sneaking up on me. Not that Fire Force is over or anything, but I just wrote a bunch of final episode reviews and I'm sort of still surprised about it.This said Fire Force is also rearing up to its climax.
Episode 6 moves along quite a bit quicker than episode 5 and the resolution of the terrorists in the mall works well enough in Special 7. Then we go to an episode which is admittedly down time and set up but unlike some other shows this one manages to keep things moving along as it does it and offers some new perspectives, or at least a chance to learn a bit more about some of the characters in the process.
