Turns out everyone is a double agent, or maybe a triple agent, who knows. And now they've walked into a trap. Terrible really. You walk into a building where there are dead homeless people and you just keep proceeding with your mission. Later, you act all shocked that someone set you up. Yep, that is … Continue reading Devils’ Line Episode 11: Oh No – It’s A Trap
This week we get the continuation of Anzai's showdown with the professor on the train, a training sequence, some chat about lost memories and the ongoing conspiracy, a romance sequence, and then a fire. Not really sure which part of that I was supposed to pay attention to. Devils' Line continues to be a bit … Continue reading Devils’ Line Episode 10: Disjointed
And we're back to caring about the fact that people are protesting about the existence of Devils. This anime doesn't really know how to build a consistent tone at all. This episode is a little bit of a mixed bag. We get some more information about Lee and a flash-back to his 'escape' but not … Continue reading Devils’ Line Episode 9: Vigilante ‘Justice’
Vampires and sex have always been fairly connected in stories, but I think Devils' Line has just thrown away the symbolism and really just wants to get Anzai and Tsukasa together. Still not sure why, but whatever. The episode of Devils' Line this week had multiple opportunities to not be a terrible anime. It had … Continue reading Devils’ Line Episode 8: Larger Social Issues Aside, Let’s Focus on Vampire Sex
As always, it strikes me as odd that I'm writing about Spring as the temperature plummets and I am being plunged into Winter. Now Winter in Australia, particularly QLD, isn't exactly chilling for most people, but when your Summer and most of Autumn days are hovering at the 35 - 39 degrees Celcius, a sudden … Continue reading Friday’s Feature: Romance in the Spring of 2018
There's a flaw in the logic that knowing what you are afraid of will allow you to overcome it, and yet at least this seems like Anzai is finally making some progress so that this anime doesn't just go around in circles with Anzai and Tsukasa endlessly. This week I'm actually going to have to … Continue reading Devils’ Line Episode 7: Facing Your Fears Apparently Solves Everything
Last week I made fun of the fact that they seemed to be setting up a conspiracy within the organisation. This week, I'm left wondering just how far up the food chain must the conspiracy go and how long has it been operating given some of the missing information. I'm still confused as to why … Continue reading Devils’ Line Episode 6: How Deep Does This Conspiracy Go?
Oh no, they finally decided to ask how Anzai could be half-devil when humans and devils can't have sex. This anime really knows how to ask and not answer the difficult questions. Well, they didn't throw any illogical plot developments at us this week but rather spent some time on the fallout of last week's … Continue reading Devils’ Line Episode 5: Ooh, Conspiracy
About the only thing keeping me watching this anime is the question of whether they can add yet another illogical plot development each and every week. So far, the answer to that would be yes. Sometimes an anime comes along that just makes you wonder if anyone ever read through the plot before they started … Continue reading Devils’ Line Episode 4: If Blood Tolerance Was A Thing, Wouldn’t The Government Know?
Another episode of this anime and another case of wondering when these two characters got so close. Episode 3 adds little to the mess. Given there are apparently only 1000 vampires in all of Tokyo, I have to wonder how our main character manages to run into so many with such frequency. She literally runs … Continue reading Devils’ Line Episode 3: Ill-Defined Relationships
