Girls’ Last Tour Episode 7: Two Types of People

Review: It is always a bit of a risk having such a small cast but Girls' Last Tour has managed to craft two characters that despite their moe like appearances really give the audience plenty to like and to relate to throughout their travels. Their contrasting views on a number of things lend themselves to … Continue reading Girls’ Last Tour Episode 7: Two Types of People

Food Wars Season 2 Series Review

Overview: Yukihira Souma is back in the kitchen and battling it out to win the Autumn elections while blowing people's clothes off with great tasting food. I reviewed this week to week so if you are interested in individual episode thoughts click here. I've also reviewed season 1. Review: Season 2's always have a bit of … Continue reading Food Wars Season 2 Series Review

Food Wars Season 2 Episode 13

Review: They at least ended the next challenge before the season ended. That was nice of them. And Yukihira even learned something. Also nice. My real issue is that this episode lacked any kind of tension. Actually most of this season has. You can only threaten expulsion so many times before it ceases to feel … Continue reading Food Wars Season 2 Episode 13

Food Wars Season 2 Episode 11

Review: Yukihira is back in the kitchen and this time he's taking all new techniques on board. Seeing him focussed and serious about his craft reminds you of his more positive characteristics (rather than his cocky and obnoxious side). The montage of classmates in their placement kitchens was a nice break in the middle of … Continue reading Food Wars Season 2 Episode 11

Food Wars Episode 11

Review: From a story point of view, this episode is more interesting. We have a new challenge with new rules in a new location and we seem to be progressing beyond just creating great food and now we're actually focussing on practical cooking. And there in lies the problem with this episode. Erina. She so … Continue reading Food Wars Episode 11

Food Wars Season 2 Episode 9

Review: Back we go to the kitchen only now the roof opens and we can see the moon. So different. And there are three people cooking. Completely different from every other match. Except that it isn't. The show fails to raise the stakes or the tension in this finals match. More importantly, all three characters … Continue reading Food Wars Season 2 Episode 9

Food Wars Season 2 Episode 8

Review: This is the second episode this season that I have really and thoroughly enjoyed watching. Amazingly enough, the previous one was Soma's preparation for his last match. The common theme, we don't spend the entire episode just watching the characters cook. Soma goes to the market. We hear various opinions about fish. We brainstorm. … Continue reading Food Wars Season 2 Episode 8

Food Wars Season 2 Episode 7

Review: While going into this episode I really didn't care who won this battle as neither of the characters competing had particularly interested me up until this point, somehow I got drawn into their match. The moment of judging was particularly tense and that outcome was actually kind of cool. I'm not going to say … Continue reading Food Wars Season 2 Episode 7

Food Wars Episode 4

Review: I spent a great deal of this episode hating it and wishing it would end. I don't like Aldini as a character and the new guy that's come along is scum. Then I realised, that somehow this episode actually made me feel sorry for Aldini and respect him for trying to overcome in the … Continue reading Food Wars Episode 4

Food Wars Episode 2 + 3

Review Episode 2: This week brings us the next match up in their cooking competition. Megumi faces Ryo and they're competing over ramen. I must say that Megumi is far and away my favourite member of the cast and it is with pleasure that we see her finally find her place in the kitchen, quietly … Continue reading Food Wars Episode 2 + 3
