The Eccentric Family Season 2 Episode 12

Review: Pretty sure I'd given up expecting a Nidaime/Benten face off and yet that's what we get this week after Benten 'allows' Yasaburo to crash the flying bus straight into Nidaime's home.

While this might … Continue reading The Eccentric Family Season 2 Episode 5

Once again, we get an episode full of encounters that all seem fairly random except that Yasaburo serves as the connection between all of these people but … Continue reading The Eccentric Family Season 2 Episode 3
