DanMachi Season 2 continues with Hestia learning the conditions of the war game, Bell training with Ais, and everyone else working to rescue Lily. Irina and I discuss what episode 3 did right, what it did wrong, and Irina desperately tries to stop me from gushing.
Yes, we are back to DanMachi (Is It Wrong to Try To Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon) with another of Bell's companions. This time our focus is on Lily, his supporter in every sense of the word. Previously I've looked at Hestia and sooner or later I'm going to have to turn my full … Continue reading Up Close with Liliruca Arde
So cool.This episode was just great to watch. I was really looking forward to seeing this part of the story animated and it absolutely didn't disappoint. I may however have gone slightly overboard with the screencaps, and still didn't manage to get any of Welf or Lily. What did you think Irina? Um...well... It was … Continue reading DanMachi Review Season 2 Episode 2 – Let The Games Begin
Irina, you're going to have to give me a few minutes to finish dancing, cheering, and maybe performing a cartwheel or two because I'm just that happy to see 'Is It Wrong To Try To Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?' (which I will forever now just write DanMachi for) is back for a … Continue reading DanMachi Review Season 2 Episode 1 – Bell Can Find Trouble Anywhere
If you've been following my blog for awhile you probably already know that I have a silly fondness for Bell from Is It Wrong To Try To Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon. Whether it is from the first season of the anime or the light novels, I find his nice guy, hard working, character … Continue reading Top 5 Girls In DanMachi
Now we all know DanMachi has never been afraid of fan service and so behold Hermes preparation of swimsuits for the girls to change into, including one too small for Hestia that eventually snaps while trying to dress and an 'improvised' version is constructed. I will point out that while lingering shots of the girls (and guys at times) and various camera angles are simply blatant pandering to fans, but the banter going on between the characters as they relax and unwind from their adventure is genuinely enjoyable.
I thought this list would be pretty easy but then I ended up with a short list so long I couldn't even begin to figure out where to go from there so I've narrowed the field. This is my choice of top 5 fight sequences that involve a blade of some description. So magic fights, … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Fight Sequences
Review: Spin-off by their very nature are always going to be compared to the original and cross overs between events in the original series and the spin-off are more or less inevitable. However, Sword Oratoria seems devoted to walking us through the events that Bell experienced, only without Bell actually being present but for the … Continue reading Sword Oratoria Episode 3
Review: While I had my reservations during episode 1, episode 2 of Sword Oratoria confirmed 3 things: Ais is an incredibly boring protagonist and even with every other character falling over themselves to talk about her or to her, it doesn't make her any more interesting. While DanMachi was a fun adventure story with its … Continue reading Sword Oratoria Episode 2
Overview: A spin-off of DanMachi (It is Wrong to Try To Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon), Sword Oratoria focusses on Ais and the Loki Familia. Review: For a show that is supposed to focus on Ais, she's remarkably passive to absent in this first episode with far more time being given to introducing a … Continue reading Sword Oratoria Episode 1
