There's a cool concept at play in Magical Girl Spec-Ops Asuka and this could have been something quite special in the dark magical girl genre and yet I can't help feeling like this anime missed its mark. I know its late but here is my review of Magical Girl Spec-Ops Asuka.
Magical Girl Spec-Ops Asuka Episode 12 Review - Don't expect an ending or even a satisfying last ditch battle. This is more a conglomerate of character moments, set up for future plot lines, and random flash backs that just kind of splatter there way across the screen for twenty minutes before we get a narration that more or less tells us the story is no where near finished.
Magical Girl Spec-Ops Asuka Episode 7 Review - Asuka is back with the military, or at least the squad that have been trying to recruit her, but it isn't smooth sailing. During their first real mission she freezes mid-battle and it is Kurumi who gets her moving again.
Goblin Slayer may have kicked off one of the worst social media storms of 2018 but how is it as a series? Well, I liked the light novels well enough but let's see how the anime went.
Magical Girl Spec-Ops Asuka Episode 6 Review - Mia makes her way to Japan but turns out she's not hooking up with Asuka and Kurumi. Instead we see her run her own investigation into the guys turned into cubes. Meanwhile, Asuka's working to find a reason to keep looking forward.
Magical Girl Spec Ops Asuka Episode 5 Review - They've rescued Nozomi but that's only half the battle. Asuka has magical mercenaries to take on and Kurumi is going head to head with Abby the crazy magical girl plus two Halloween Class monsters. Even once the dust has settled and the physical damage healed, Nozomi isn't exactly going to just get over that.
Episode 2 of this anime turns down the extreme content, but what do we get instead? As much as the first episode of this show flaunted misery for the sake of it and gave us characters that we couldn't sympathise with because they hadn't tried to make them real characters, at least there was the … Continue reading Magical Girl Site Episode 2: Shock Factor Done, Set Into Familiar Patterns
In the battle to see which magical girl anime could hit the bottom first for dealing out sensationalist violence without substance, this one is a strong contender for victor unless it actually does have some point other than misery. What did you think of this first episode? Other than Killing Stalking and the occasional BL … Continue reading Magical Girl Site First Impressions – Warning on the Content and Images In This Post
Overview: I've really touched on Madoka before when I wrote a feature regarding the Strange Case of Madoka Magica but I've not yet written an actual series review so I figured it was about time. For those that don't know, Madoka Magica is about Madoka who is approached one day by Kyubey and offered the power … Continue reading Puella Magi Madoka Magica Series Review: Make a Wish, Pay the Price
Review Episode 2: The main problem with this episode is that even though it starts with someone turning down the contract, you kind of know by the end someone is going to hell (this is the fourth season afterall). So all of the steps in the middle just seem to be stretching content as we … Continue reading Hell Girl: Fourth Twilight Episodes 2 + 3: Blow Out The Candle Already
