Juni Taisen: Zodiac War Episode 10 – I’m Going to Miss the Tiger

Review (some spoilers): As Tiger echoes my thoughts about little interest in a make-believe war (where the context and stakes are still so incredibly vague there's genuinely no reason for the audience to care) I have to admit this episode was one of the better ones this show has delivered.

King’s Game Episode 9: Emotional Tension Despite a Lack of Logic

Review (some spoilers): Pointing out holes in the logic of King's Game is pointless as well as stupid at this point in time. It is clear the story isn't logical and isn't trying to be.

Review with spoilers: I've made it fairly clear that so far Zodiac War hasn't exactly been amazing viewing and this week isn't an exception.

Juni Taisen: Zodiac War Episode 2: Dead Boar Walking

Review - Minor Spoiler: After episode 2, I'm still pretty underwhelmed by this one. It looks fantastic, I have no complaints about the visuals or animation.
