Volume 2 thoughts here. Wow. Just wow. … Continue reading Is It Wrong To Try To Pick Up Girls in A Dungeon Light Novel Volume 3 Review

Is It Wrong To Try To Pick Up Girls in A Dungeon Light Novel Volume 2 Review

Review: That title is really way too long no matter how you look at it. Anyway, onto book 2 (book 1 thoughts here) and we continue to follow Bell's adventures. Hestia's role in this book is much smaller and the focus is more on Bell developing as an adventurer and the introduction of Lilly, a … Continue reading Is It Wrong To Try To Pick Up Girls in A Dungeon Light Novel Volume 2 Review

Kino’s Journey (2017) Series Review: Aimless Wanderer’s Journey Fails To Connect

Overview: Kino travels from country to country with her talking motorrad Hermes. She stays in each country for three days and then moves on. Review: I've always had a bit of a soft spot for episodic stories (even highly formulaic ones) so Kino's Journey was something I thought I could get in to. I'd never … Continue reading Kino’s Journey (2017) Series Review: Aimless Wanderer’s Journey Fails To Connect

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
