Overview: Set in the Victorian era, Cardia is alone in a tower when the military come for her. She's then kidnapped by a thief. Turns out she has some weird poison in her that burns pretty much everything and there's some terrorist plot to destroy London and then the world. However this is based on … Continue reading Code: Realize ~Guardian of Rebirth~ Series Review: Nowhere Near As Impressive As The Amount Of Punctuation in the Title Suggests
Review: I know I complain when things don't resolve, but this was a very neat conclusion. Finis, father, Cardia's poison, her relationship with Lupin, everything tied up in a pretty little bow. I guess that's kind of been this show from start to finish though. It just kind of did its thing never particularly well … Continue reading Code: Realize ~Guardian of Rebirth~ Episode 12: A Neat Package
Review: The race is on for Lupin and co to rush off and save Cardia off of Nemo's Nautilus. That sounds a lot more dramatic than this episode actually is, but it kind of speaks for this show. It remains very careful as it steps through all the necessary parts of a story including this … Continue reading Code Realize ~Guardian of Rebirth~ Episode 11: Save Cardia, Save the World
Welcome to week 11 and we are nearing the final episodes of most shows (or the halfway point of a couple). Autumn has been an excellent season for anime watching and I'm almost sad to see it end but I'm also really excited to see how some of these shows wrap up. As always, I'd … Continue reading Autumn 2017 Week 11
Review: I guess this is what happens when your story has everything it needs and yet still falls pretty flat. While some people might really be enjoying this I just found this episode (much like most of the series so far) incredibly paint by numbers and just kind of soulless. We have the heroes doing … Continue reading Code Realize ~Guardian of Rebirth~ Episode 10: I Guess We’re Building to a Climax
Review: For an episode that actually had a pretty dramatic ending (predictable but still dramatic) the rest of this episode just kind of felt like it was going through the motions. London is burning, soldiers are rebelling, and Cardia and Lupin return, reunite with the others and decide to save the Queen. I don't know … Continue reading Code: Realize ~Guardian of Rebirth~ Episode 8: The Enemy of My Enemy
Review: This episode begins with a recap of Finis tormenting Cardia in his own internal monologue and ends with him laughing maniacally, but I have to wonder what purpose he actually serves. It is Cardia and Finis' father who actually has the terrorist plot that we are slowly closing in on. Finis at this point … Continue reading Code Realize ~Guardian of Rebirth~ Episode 7: Is Finis Relevant?
Review: Well, this is kind of Impey's episode, but unsurprisingly he's pretty boring as a character so instead of really delving into who he is (other than a dreamer who wants to go to the moon) we'll spend the episode preparing for and then participating in an air-race with a stolen airship. This will go … Continue reading Code Realize ~Guardian of Rebirth~ Episode 6: What Did They Do To Nemo?
Overview: I want you to touch me. I want to feel your warmth. Cardia is a girl who possesses a toxin that melts everything she touches. Feared as a monster, she spent her days in isolation. One night, just as she is about to be captured by the British army, she meets a man who … Continue reading Code: Realize ~Guardian of Rebirth~ Episode 1: Back in Victorian London
