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.

Gamers Episode 11: Let’s Go On A Double Date

Review: This episode of Gamers begins where the last ended with Tendou and Uehara not wanting to think Amano and Aguri are cheating but not sure what else to think.

Of course, that means … Continue reading Kiss Him, Not Me Episode 12

Kiss Him, Not Me Episode 2

Review: I'm not going to bother levelling my overall criticism of the premise of this show every single week so if you want to hear that check out my thoughts on episode 1. Episode 2 brings us more of the guys pursuing the girl and it becomes even clearer that only one of them has … Continue reading Kiss Him, Not Me Episode 2

Kiss Him, Not Me Episode 1

Overview: Kae has a lot of BL fantasies but after the death of her favourite character she loses a lot of weight and now a bunch of guys want to date her. Review: Here's a two speed review. Number 1: This is horrendous portrayal of any kind of romance or characterisation. The fat girl wearing … Continue reading Kiss Him, Not Me Episode 1
