Chain Chronicle – The Light of Haecceitas Series Review

Overview: The Black King has stolen half of the chain chronicle (which apparently documents everything that happens in the world) and now he's using it to engulf the world in darkness. The heroes have already tried to defeat him and failed, but have they given up hope? I reviewed Chain Chronicle week to week so … Continue reading Chain Chronicle – The Light of Haecceitas Series Review

Chain Chronicle – The Light of Haecceitas Episode 12

Review: Hey, after 12 episodes I finally spelt the name right on the first go instead of the fifth. There's an achievement. Anyway, this ends pretty much exactly the way you would expect given the story so far. It's never done more than be a standard sword and sorcery fantasy and the ending, in all … Continue reading Chain Chronicle – The Light of Haecceitas Episode 12

Chain Chronicle – The Light of Haecceitas Episode 11

Review: This is all pretty stock standard final battle material now. Characters who have been at odds or set up as opposites face each other and there are a lot of extras getting knocked off (not that it matters given the black king seems to be able to auto generate soldiers at will). It isn't … Continue reading Chain Chronicle – The Light of Haecceitas Episode 11

Chain Chronicle – The Light of Haecceitas Episode 10

Review: Right, I had a lot of fun with this episode, so my criticisms are not enough to detract from the overall enjoyment of the free-for-all being set up but at the same time I am concerned that there were so many issues in this episode. The main one being time. Somehow we've all regrouped … Continue reading Chain Chronicle – The Light of Haecceitas Episode 10

Winter 2017 Week 9

Week 9 has come and gone and we see the shows that are finishing up launch their final few episodes. This should be a realy exciting time and a couple of shows seem to acknowledge that, but there's a lot that are just going through the motions and may or may not deliver a satisfying … Continue reading Winter 2017 Week 9

Chain Chronicle – The Light of Haecceitas Episode 9

Review: This episode feels like it is Aram's graduation ceremony. From boy picked up by former hero, to ambitious idol of Yuri, to reluctantly taking on the role of the hero, to actually being a hero, Aram's journey throughout Chain Chronicle has been interesting. It really feels like this is where he was always heading … Continue reading Chain Chronicle – The Light of Haecceitas Episode 9

Chain Chronicle – The Light of Haecceitas Episode 8

Review: There was a moment early in this episode where I realised they'd just thrown us into the middle of a battle and we didn't know who was fighting or which side they were on. And then I realised that of course we knew who the bad guys are, they are all in black. This … Continue reading Chain Chronicle – The Light of Haecceitas Episode 8

Winter 2017 Week 7

From following Twitter, it definitely seems there's a lot of mid-season dropping going on with people getting half-way through a show that kind of looked like it had potential but then failing to deliver. Even people who don't normally drop mid-season are finding themselves making the choice to let something go. That said, there's a … Continue reading Winter 2017 Week 7

Chain Chronicle: The Light of Haecceitas

Review: It really feels like other than Shuza, nobody in this world had ever considered any other way of fighting the black king other than Yuri. With Yuri getting taken over the sorcerers, the holy queen, and even Yuri's friends are all kind of at odds and not really knowing what to do. Shuza on … Continue reading Chain Chronicle: The Light of Haecceitas

Chain Chronicles: The Light of Haecceitas Episode 6

Review: One of my pet hates when watching anime is how easily characters are brainwashed or manipulated, particularly during critical moments. With that said, as Chain Chronicles completes it's 'come to the dark-side' moment I'm actually impressed that for once the villains (and various hallucinations) gave a fairly concrete argument as to why the hero … Continue reading Chain Chronicles: The Light of Haecceitas Episode 6
