Controversial Fortunes, Candid Fan Photos, And Helping Bakers

Conception Anime Episode Review Title Image

Episode 5 gave us a beach episode. You won't believe how much dread I felt when I realised this already incredibly borderline show that seems to relish in oozing sleaze, was about to take us to the location where even tame series decide to max out the fan service and innuendo.

In The Absence of Action, We Get An Attack of the Talking Heads

Sword Art Online Alicization - Episode 6 There was a lot of talking this episode. Like massive amounts of talking. And a lot of it is that weird kind of technobabbly talk that happens when a concept really doesn’t make a lot of sense but the writers are earnestly trying to convince the audience that … Continue reading In The Absence of Action, We Get An Attack of the Talking Heads

Release the Spyce Episode 5

They are really hammering this mentor-student relationship point. Last week we focused almost exclusively on Mei and Fu and this week we shift back to our focus on Momo joining the team and her relationship with her Mentor (and does anyone else find it a little creepy how often Hanzoumon is just kind of hanging … Continue reading Release the Spyce Episode 5: My Mentor is Amazing

A Certain Magical Index Season 3 Episode 5: I’m Glad I’m Not The Only One Confused

A Certain Magical Index Season 3 Episode 5

A lot of the dialogue this episode was taken up by characters either trying to identify or asking which group others characters were a part of (not helped by on the the groups being called GROUP) and it made me feel relatively happy that I wasn't the only one lost as to who belongs to … Continue reading A Certain Magical Index Season 3 Episode 5: I’m Glad I’m Not The Only One Confused

Sword Art Online Alicization Episode 5: Asuna’s Turn

Sword Art Online Alicization Episode 5 - Leafa and Asuna

You know, I had a lot of fun last week seeing Kirito do his thing. As I said in my weekly update, Sword Art Online is most fun when it gives Kirito a sword and a target.

Xuan Yuan Sword Luminary Episode 5: Attack of the Poor Animation

Xuan Yuan Sword Luminary Episode 5

Right from episode 1 this anime came across as rough. There was some pretty bad CG and more than a few off model character moments. After that though things kind of settled, until this episode (that isn't saying there aren't some poorer moments in the episodes in between but they weren't noteworthy). Episode 5 on … Continue reading Xuan Yuan Sword Luminary Episode 5: Attack of the Poor Animation

Release the Spyce Episode 4: It’s All About Mei and Fu

Release the Spyce Episode 4 Mei and Fu

You know, there are secret organisations afoot, drugs being traded, human experimentation, and all kinds of weird, but for whatever reason this anime feels that spending an episode dealing with the mentor-student relationship of Mei and Fu is the absolute best thing it can show us. This episode really does make it clear that despite … Continue reading Release the Spyce Episode 4: It’s All About Mei and Fu

A Certain Magical Index Season 3 Episode 4: Ditch The Main Cast And Go For A Ride

A Certain Magical Index Season 3 Episode 4

Theoretically we might have met a lot more of these characters before than I remember. I haven't watched seasons one and two of this for awhile but I'm going to be honest and just say that I recognised maybe four characters in this episode. The rest of the time we were just blipping between groups … Continue reading A Certain Magical Index Season 3 Episode 4: Ditch The Main Cast And Go For A Ride
