Sword Art Online Alicization Episode Review Title Image

Sword Art Online Episode 23 - Who would have thought that the first slightly developed male character outside of Kirito would end up sacrificing himself in a spectacular display of short sightedness and launch a mostly useless attack? Oh well, not like I expect any better at this point.

Sword Art Online Alicization Episode 22 Review - The senate guy is killed more or less instantly so why worry about him. Exposition, moralising, yada, yada, okay another fight and Alice and Kirito are taken out in one shot each. Then instantly healed. This just isn't good.

Sword Art Online Alicization Episode 19 Review - After a recap episode last week, this week more or less picks up where we were. There's more talking while sitting on a ledge but then we see Alice confronting her brainwashing while Eugeo seems to be falling straight into it.

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.

Food Wars Season 2 Episode 7

Review: While going into this episode I really didn't care who won this battle as neither of the characters competing had particularly interested me up until this point, somehow I got drawn into their match. The moment of judging was particularly tense and that outcome was actually kind of cool. I'm not going to say … Continue reading Food Wars Season 2 Episode 7
