Previously, this anime had been mixing new technology with yokai legends. Episode 4 takes us on a far more traditional walk. GeGeGe no Kitaro has done a pretty good job of bringing yokai into modern Japan with stories using smart phones and idols as major plot points. This episode moves away from that as Mana's … Continue reading GeGeGe No Kitaro Episode 4: A More Traditional Walk Through A Forest

Some solid ground work is going in to bringing the cast of this anime together and I think the end result might be quite interesting. Though, early days yet for the battles. It seemed inevitable that characters I didn't like so much would also return as well as ones that I had fond memories for. … Continue reading Lostorage Conflated Wixoss Episode 3: New Rules; Same Trauma
