Summer 2016 Week 13

This is my last overview for Summer 2016. I know some shows still haven't finished but next week I'll be posting my first thoughts on the Autumn season shows as they start rolling out (though from the looks of Crunchyroll and AnimeLab I may be a little short of shows this season - I say … Continue reading Summer 2016 Week 13

Alderamin on the Sky Episode 12

Review: With one episode to go there weren't any surprises this week but that didn't stop this episode from being dramatic and engaging. It was excellent to see Ikta and Yattori's relationship continue to be a pertinent motivator even amongst the crisis. It was also great to see Torway not just be involved in the … Continue reading Alderamin on the Sky Episode 12

Summer 2016 Week 12

So here we are in the last weeks of the summer anime season. Some shows will be wrapping and others still have a week or two to go. That said, I am starting to check out the upcoming shows to see what I'll be following in the Autumn Season (it is still weird reversing the … Continue reading Summer 2016 Week 12

Alderamin on the Sky Episode 11

Review: After setting up a conflict between two geniuses last week, this episode really just had the two of them testing the other out. As a result, we had a skirmish with some loss of lives but nothing really decisive. Everything really feels like it is just waiting for the real show to begin. With … Continue reading Alderamin on the Sky Episode 11

Alderamin on the Sky Episode 10

Review: After last week's rather ordinary episode, this one seemed to go out of its way to hit us hard with some of the best things about Alderamin. First we re-established why Ikta and Yatori are actually still the heroes of the story even though they are officers in an army that pretty much sucks. … Continue reading Alderamin on the Sky Episode 10

Summer 2016 Week 10

Are you excited for the end of the season? So I know Days is continuing on, haven't heard about the others but most things should start wrapping up soon. Let's see what they can deliver in their final episodes. Meanwhile, most of the shows I've been enjoying throughout this season delivered okay but not awesome … Continue reading Summer 2016 Week 10

Alderamin on the Sky Episode 9

Review: It feels now like this battle is getting stretched out for the sake of it. While there are some very cool moments in the battle and Ikta has a few moments of self-reflection, overall nothing really progresses. The military are still trampling through the mountains, blindly trying to fight an enemy that knows the … Continue reading Alderamin on the Sky Episode 9

Alderamin on the Sky Episode 8

Review: Continuing the battle in the mountains things take a turn for the worse this episode due to the inept command and lack of preparation for a battle that by all appearances the commanders instigated but weren't ready for. While this helps to endear us further to the core group and to really feel for … Continue reading Alderamin on the Sky Episode 8

Alderamin on the Sky Episode 7

Review: This show continues to be better than it probably should be. Last week they lay the foundations for a new conflict, this week we see the first stages of that conflict and next week we'll probably see our core characters resolve the conflict or at least make steps to resolve it. It really shouldn't … Continue reading Alderamin on the Sky Episode 7

Alderamin on the Sky Episode 6

Review: While from a plot point of view this episode seems weaker (just another obvious set-up for Ikta to show off his amazing brain), the characters and the writing of this anime continue to make for a pleasant viewing experience. The change of location was nice and the interactions between characters, new and old, were … Continue reading Alderamin on the Sky Episode 6
