91 Days Episode 11

Review: Turns out we have one more episode but this was a highly entertaining episode. The first half was all semi-ironic statements about planning for a future (that we should all know by now was never going to exist) and the second half was metaphorically about burning everything down (though less flames and more knives … Continue reading 91 Days Episode 11

91 Days Episode 10

Review: If I wasn't sure before this episode more or less confirmed that Avilio has no intention of surviving his revenge quest. With that piece of information in mind, his actions throughout the whole series make a lot more sense because at no point could I see what his exit plan was going to be. … Continue reading 91 Days Episode 10

91 Days Episode 9

Review: Corteo is captured but not yet killed. Kind of surprising really. This week felt like the story was done diverting us from the central narrative by watching gang in-fighting and seemed to get right back to Avilio and his revenge. Who is the elusive letter sender? Who is the fourth killer? With that focus … Continue reading 91 Days Episode 9

91 Days Episode 8

Review: Corteo is going to be a problem. Okay, he is a problem. He's a problem for the other characters and he's a problem as a character. I won't spoil the developments in this episode but I do want to address the problem of Corteo as a character. He is Avilio's friend. He wants to … Continue reading 91 Days Episode 8

91 Days Episode 7.5

Review: You know, Cheer Boys did the whole recap thing awhile back and I expressed my dislike of recap episodes that add nothing new then. At least when it did it, they added some narration and they were following a high point in the series. 91 Days follows the killing of Frate (which might have … Continue reading 91 Days Episode 7.5

91 Days Episode 7

Review: I'm pretty sure this was conclusion last week; everyone in this anime is going to end up dead. This episode more or less confirms that the ultimate end for all these betrayals and intrigues is a bullet. It really feels like this show only has one reveal to go and that is who is … Continue reading 91 Days Episode 7

91 Days Episode 6

Review: I really think this is going to be one of those shows where everyone ends up dead. It just keeps twisting this straight revenge story so that everyone is playing everyone else and you can just see a massive body count when we get to the end of the line. That said, this episode … Continue reading 91 Days Episode 6

91 Days Episode 5

Review: They return to the city this week and I have to admit I'm going to need to rewatch the show from the beginning because at this point I really can't keep the families and their names straight. Which makes this episode with the plot heavy on betrayal, deals and backstabbing particularly hard to follow. … Continue reading 91 Days Episode 5

91 Days Episode 4

Review: I'm enjoying this show less and less. I still do want to see how the revenge eventually is resolved but watching Avilio and what's-his-name roam around the countryside and running low on cash wasn't exactly fascinating. While this episode is full of what might be touching character moments, the plot has literally screeched to … Continue reading 91 Days Episode 4
