Arifureta: From Commonplace To World’s Strongest Volume 4 Light Novel Review

Arifureta Volume 4 Cover

After the near disaster that was Tio's introduction in volume 3 my hopes were not high going into volume 4. Fortunately, the plot kicks things into high gear and doesn't really stop making for a fairly enjoyable romp.

Grimms Notes Episode 7 and 8 Review - This one has far and away been the underperformer of the season. With an interesting concept at its core, it just never manages to emotionally connect and so far character development or motivation has been somewhat underwhelming.

Goblin Slayer may have kicked off one of the worst social media storms of 2018 but how is it as a series? Well, I liked the light novels well enough but let's see how the anime went.

A series of stories following the characters from Goblin Slayer, but this book can't help but feel disjointed.. That said, there's plenty to enjoy even if as an overall novel it doesn't really read that well.

Sword Art Online Alicization Episode 18.5 Review - As Alicization recaps it more or less makes me want to sit back and take stock of how it has been viewing this latest entry in the SAO franchise. Unfortunately, I don't think that did the show any favours at all.

Grimms Notes Episode 5 Review - Arguably the best episode yet but even then this has simply highlighted the overall flaw in the premise as it has been presented so far. Maybe that's a sign that the anime intends to deal with it, but I can't say I have a lot of confidence in that.

Sword Art Online Alicization Episode 18 Review - The focus this week is tightly on Eugeo facing the leader of the integrity knights (and former village legend) alone. This is the first time we've seen Eugeo on his own without Kirito's guidance, and he's up against a tough opponent. it's a fairly great character moment for the Eugeo as we see his choices this far up the tower.

Endro Episode 4 Review - To the beach to see girls in swim suits and makeralmen being turned into some evil god's slaves? This anime might be a bit weird but it is actually fairly fun to watch.
