Unrestrained Power Fantasy Involving 1 Guy, 12 Girls, and 1 Tanuki - Conception really doesn't know what to do with its ingredients but it is an oddity.
Here it is. The worst anime of Autumn for 2018 as voted by you the readers as well as my choices for anime I watched that just didn't deliver.
Conception Episode 12 Review: As the title says, at last it's done. But it didn't go without giving us a handful more moments of sheer WTF.
Conception Episode 11 Review - Just when you thought the show couldn't be any more random and weird, we get this. Conception finally advances its whole Itsuki saving the world plot, reveals Alfie's secret, and has Itsuki sleep with Mana. That's a lot of 'what the' moments for a single episode.
Conception Episode 10: The thirteenth maiden is revealed and they spend some time actually fighting in the labyrinth. Despite that, this anime really feels like there's very little effort being put into it at this point and Mana remains a character I'd like to introduce to a paper shredder.
Autumn 2018 - Week 9: What did week 9 bring us? Well, plenty of great moments as the Autumn anime start heading into either their final turn of the season or gear up for their mid-season if they are running two cour.

The quality entertainment available this season has been amazing and I am genuinely enjoying the ride. Though, we are … Continue reading Autumn 2018 Week 8
Conception Episode 8 Review: The last two star maidens fall under Itsuki's gaze as we get a cheap knock off of The Bachelor and then a final twist thrown in for the sake of extending the story given we're already out of actual subject matter at episode 8.
Conception Episode 7 Review There's no real polite way to point out that this is trash, and it is the kind of trash that just keeps getting trashier. I'm not even sure what they were trying to do with Colette's character early in the episode with all the puns and innuendos but mostly she came … Continue reading Exploring Innuendo and Bread At The Festival
