Trickster Episode 12

Review: At the start of this episode it kind of looked like Kobayashi was actually going to do something and maybe we were going to get closer to the mystery of his bubble power but of course, this is Trickster. Instead he simply walks through the chaos (with the occasional bullet getting within what should … Continue reading Trickster Episode 12

Trickster Episode 11

Review: The opening sequence of Trickster this week decided to play around with the visuals instead of sound, though I have to ask why there is suddenly some sort of floating base. Anyway, Hanasaki remains an inept main character and not a particularly interesting one. Amazingly enough after Akechi turns up he regrets being a … Continue reading Trickster Episode 11

Meanwhile Inoue tells Kobayashi to save himself and to leave him (which being Kobayashi he agrees to leaving Inoue in a heartbeat, … Continue reading Trickster Episode 5

Trickster Episode 4

I guess I shouldn't complain too much. They finally have something resembling an actual mystery though the whole set-up seems pretty pointless and I'm kind … Continue reading Trickster Episode 4
