Fastest Finger First Episode 9: Way To Make A Character We Hate

Review: The final group of the second round have their go and of course Koshiyama ends up paired with the girl (who is actually a guy) from the arcade who really is just a jerk. There's no other way to describe someone who treats others with that much disdain. Really, really wishing, that his team … Continue reading Fastest Finger First Episode 9: Way To Make A Character We Hate

Fastest Finger First Episode 8: No Reward Without Risk

Review Episode 8: And the competition has begun. There's not a lot to say about this episode other than I had a lot of fun watching the team take a paper quiz and then two rounds of buzzing. There's some character stuff going on with the girl they met at the arcade and the whole … Continue reading Fastest Finger First Episode 8: No Reward Without Risk

Fastest Finger First Episodes 2 + 3: An Academic’s Version of an Adrenaline Rush

Review Episode 2: I mentioned this in my last post on this anime, but I really do love trivia and quizzes. So, no surprise my favourite part of watching this came from learning something new. Even if it was just that someone actually came up with a term to describe the space between the hem … Continue reading Fastest Finger First Episodes 2 + 3: An Academic’s Version of an Adrenaline Rush

My Hero Academia Episode 15

Review: I really don't like tournament arcs in stories where there are actual conflicts they could be facing in the real world. Tournaments by their very nature have rules and limitations which takes a lot of the tension out of the matches and in stories there is always a twist somewhere along the way which … Continue reading My Hero Academia Episode 15

Haikyuu Episodes 16 + 17

Review Episode 16: I really enjoyed this episode. The opponent was really well done given they were really just there and gone but I liked that they made me care that they lost. Also, the focus on all of those who ended their games in losses was kind of nice. The pain of trying your … Continue reading Haikyuu Episodes 16 + 17

Haikyuu Episodes 14 + 15

Review Episode 14: Okay, I know I'm not a big fan of them doing nothing but playing volleyball for a whole episode, but when we get an episode like this where other than a very brief training sequence we have no volleyball, suddenly I realise how much better this show is when they are playing … Continue reading Haikyuu Episodes 14 + 15

Yuri On Ice Episode 7

Review: Episode 7 of Yuri on Ice is the episode I'm going to remember where it stopped being just a fun and interesting watch with some characters I kind of liked and it became a show where I truly respected the characterisation of the protagonist (and by characterisation, I don't mean they finally kissed). Yrui's … Continue reading Yuri On Ice Episode 7
