Noragami Aragoto Series Review: This Hero is Worthy of Respect

Before I get into the review I just want to have a minor celebration as this is officially my 200th anime series review. It seems incredibly that I've reviewed that many shows and my list of anime that I want to review never seems to get any shorter. While it isn't quite up to date, … Continue reading Noragami Aragoto Series Review: This Hero is Worthy of Respect

Land of the Lustrous Episode 12: Phos’ Resolve

Review: While this isn't a perfect ending by any means with time wasted on the introduced character who ultimately contributes little to this season (though probably serves some greater purpose later) and overall no actual answers to the greater mysteries of this series, I couldn't help but feel satisfied by how this show came back … Continue reading Land of the Lustrous Episode 12: Phos’ Resolve

UQ Holder Episode 12: They Finished The Fight But Not The Story

Review: Last week they left us with a fight between Tota and his friends and Negi and his friends in the stadium and this week kind of concludes that fight. Kind of as in the bad guys leave but that's about all the resolution you are going to get in this series. Still, if you … Continue reading UQ Holder Episode 12: They Finished The Fight But Not The Story

Juni Taisen: Zodiac War Episode 12: I Think The Viewers Need Rat’s Wish

Review: Sad that the final episode was the first that made me actually kind of intrigued by a character and the world constructed by this anime. Sad that all of the previous 11 episodes ultimately ended with Nezumi's one wish that he decided needed to be granted. However it is now done and I will … Continue reading Juni Taisen: Zodiac War Episode 12: I Think The Viewers Need Rat’s Wish

Thoughts on Star Wars: The Last Jedi

I'm not going to pretend this is actually a review of the movie because that would be kind of a lie. I'm not planning on being in any way objective or even looking at this movie in any kind of comprehensive fashion. And yet, I feel compelled to write about my experience viewing this movie … Continue reading Thoughts on Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Land of the Lustrous Episode 11: I Hate To Say Anti-Climatic But…

Review: I am a big fan of this show and have thoroughly enjoyed the watch thus far, but episode 11 delivers one thing I find really frustrating. Episode 10 was beautifully tense and dramatic building up to a wonderful climax leaving us with a cliff-hanger. Episode 11 resolves and diffuses any tension from that in … Continue reading Land of the Lustrous Episode 11: I Hate To Say Anti-Climatic But…

Dies Irae Episode 10: Blah, Blah

Review: This episode finished off the fight at the hospital but mostly we just went between different people talking about stuff that doesn't make a lot of sense and the characters reinforced the fact that none of them actually get on with each other and then the hospital went boom. Yeah, at some point Marie … Continue reading Dies Irae Episode 10: Blah, Blah

Angel Beats Series Review: What Do You Live For?

Overview: Another anime I cannot believe I haven't already reviewed given how many times I've used this one as an example. I discussed this in anime using product placement and it is on at least four of my top 5 lists including top 5 anime that made me cry and top 5 anime from P.A. … Continue reading Angel Beats Series Review: What Do You Live For?

Juni Taisen: Zodiac War Episode 11 – I’d Say It’s Over But There’s Still and Episode To Go

Review (some spoilers): There's a real sense of time wasted as this eleventh episode rolls around. At no point has this series veered off the path it set for itself in episode 1 as characters continued to be taken out in strict Zodiac order using the same basic idea over and over again. These great … Continue reading Juni Taisen: Zodiac War Episode 11 – I’d Say It’s Over But There’s Still and Episode To Go
