Kino’s Journey Episode 9: Disjointed Fragments

Review: The episode title claimed various countries and it wasn't kidding. This episode we jump between Shizu, Ti and Riku and Kino and Hermes as they travel about. The end result is a fairly mish-mashed episode with ideas and countries fighting for your attention and the usual lack of subtlety I've come to expect from … Continue reading Kino’s Journey Episode 9: Disjointed Fragments

Land of the Lustrous Episode 8: Phos is Golden

Review: For all that Land of the Lustrous has some pacing and narrative issues, the overall anime continues to be an intriguing and pleasing viewing experience. Being easy on the eyes (and sometimes truly beautiful) certainly helps in this, but it is also how the story remains fairly ambiguous but not annoying. The world these … Continue reading Land of the Lustrous Episode 8: Phos is Golden

I haven't done a gaming post for awhile and that's mostly because I restarted Baldur's Gate II. This was one of my favourite games when I was in highschool and I literally dropped hundreds of hours into playing it. The worse thing was that after several upgrades to my computer system my original game discs … Continue reading What I’m Playing: Baldur’s Gate II: Shadow’s of Amn

Land of the Lustous Episode 4: As Much As Things Change, They Stay The Same

Review: I'll get this out of my system and point out that this show is by far the prettiest show this season and that is in a season with The Ancient Magus' Bride delivering gorgeous representations of magic and march Comes in Like a Lion hitting us with pure emotions being visualised absolutely flawlessly. I … Continue reading Land of the Lustous Episode 4: As Much As Things Change, They Stay The Same

Kino’s Journey Episode 4: We Can Fix It

Review: At first I thought it was odd that this episode had Shizu as the main character visiting the country (Kino doesn't appear until much later in the episode, though you kind of know they are going to show up and it isn't much of a surprise when they finally do run into each other). … Continue reading Kino’s Journey Episode 4: We Can Fix It
