Anime-Gataris Episode 12: Death By Narrator, Nonsense, and No Direction

Review: Anime-Gataris has become an increasingly convoluted and frustrating watch. Despite early indications that some catastrophe was coming, the final form it takes is incredibly random and the solution is equally non-nonsensical making for a fairly lacking finale that draws on the worst clich├ęs of poor endings including the power of friendship overcoming anything. Now, … Continue reading Anime-Gataris Episode 12: Death By Narrator, Nonsense, and No Direction

Anime-Gataris Episode 11: Let’s Make Random Happen

Review: Anime-Gataris has increasingly become the show this season that I have to wonder why I am still watching it. The first couple of episodes were great fun but since then it has become a bit of a chore to watch and episode 11 decided to throw any chance of recovery out the window. The … Continue reading Anime-Gataris Episode 11: Let’s Make Random Happen

Anime-Gataris Episode 10: It’s the Power of Friendship/Teamwork/Plot Convenience

Review: While this episode certainly did better than last week in that it delivered some actual plot progression and a nice simple problem to solve (Principal's door is locked and we need a code to unlock it), there's still plenty to wonder about how the show got to this place. More specifically, why they felt … Continue reading Anime-Gataris Episode 10: It’s the Power of Friendship/Teamwork/Plot Convenience

Anime-Gataris Episode 9: There’s a Fine Line and This Just Jumped Right Over It

Review: I'm not the biggest fan of comedy in the first place, but the first couple of episodes of this show were pretty funny. However, heading in to episode 9 and off the back of a couple of fairly flat episodes, we see the show trying to capture some of the energy it had earlier … Continue reading Anime-Gataris Episode 9: There’s a Fine Line and This Just Jumped Right Over It

Anime-Gataris Episode 8: It’s a Swing and a Miss

Review: One thing that has become painfully obvious during the mid-season of Anime-Gataris is that this show is at its best when it is a straight parody of other anime or when the characters are passionately engaged in an anime discussion dropping references left and right. Devoid of either of those ideas, the story itself … Continue reading Anime-Gataris Episode 8: It’s a Swing and a Miss

Anime-Gataris Episode 7: They’re Going To Shut Down The Club, Again?

Review: While conceptually I understand that this show is parodying many other anime, and the overused club getting shut down conflict is worth poking fun at, this is getting ridiculous. It was kind of the reason I didn't watch Food Wars this season because the whole getting expelled or equally ridiculous consequence of cook offs … Continue reading Anime-Gataris Episode 7: They’re Going To Shut Down The Club, Again?

Anime-Gataris Episode 6: I Lost Count, But This Was Fun

Review: I have no idea how many references they packed into that episode but they were coming thick and fast and they were fantastic. Shout out to the Ore Monogatari and Steins;Gate references that both got shoved in to the same scene and somehow made perfect sense. Yet if there were any surer sign that … Continue reading Anime-Gataris Episode 6: I Lost Count, But This Was Fun

Autumn 2017 Week 6

As we reach the half-way point for a lot of shows (though a number of these will continue on for a second cour) I am still loving this season. It could just be that I found the Summer season fairly weak and this season looks good by comparison, but I actually kind of feel like … Continue reading Autumn 2017 Week 6
