Dies Irae Episode 9: Disturbing

Review: I'm going to keep this super brief because I'm pretty over this show. Truly disturbing birth sequence followed by some overly emotional drivel on the roof before people show up and fight. End of episode as new bad guy shows up, steps on own ally and then challenges hero, who was already losing, to … Continue reading Dies Irae Episode 9: Disturbing

Dies Irae Episode 8: It’s All Just Stuff

Review: I kind of get the impression even the characters are bored with this show at this point. It is all trying to look super dramatic and cool or whatever, but basically stuff just happens and then other stuff is said to explain the stuff that happened, and then some more stuff happens. And I … Continue reading Dies Irae Episode 8: It’s All Just Stuff

Dies Irae Episode 7: We May As Well Just Go With It At This Point

Review: One thing I have learned since I started blogging and trying to actively keep watching shows rather than dropping them at the first sign of disappointment in order to have consistency in my review schedule, is that some shows it is better to just switch off any kind of critical thought processes and just … Continue reading Dies Irae Episode 7: We May As Well Just Go With It At This Point

Dies Irae Episode 6: Shiny Lights and Stuff Goes Boom

Review: So I am not confused about the plot anymore. I was seriously over thinking this under the assumption that there was some deeper meaning to any of it and once this episode thoroughly convinced me that this was not the case everything kind of fell into place. The issue being that what I'm not … Continue reading Dies Irae Episode 6: Shiny Lights and Stuff Goes Boom

Dies Irae Episode 5: Singing is Creepy

Review: As an episode this one was very nearly coherent. It even shed some light on a least one aspect of the story. In terms of helping the rest of the mess make sense... Well there's still more we don't know than stuff we do. It also didn't feel like they were adding in unnecessary … Continue reading Dies Irae Episode 5: Singing is Creepy

Dies Irae Episode 4: Um…

Review: After watching this episode I wondered if maybe I was over thinking the show, or maybe under thinking because I just cannot get my head around what this show is actually supposed to be. So I got someone to listen while I attempted to explain what had happened so far and what the story … Continue reading Dies Irae Episode 4: Um…

Dies Irae Episode 3: I’m Lost

Review: To be honest, I have no idea what is going on at this point. I get the bit where Fuji is linked somehow to the guillotine girl and for some reason she possessed his childhood friend and then Fuji somehow calmed her down and took her back. Somehow. And that's the bit that kind … Continue reading Dies Irae Episode 3: I’m Lost

Dies Irae Episode 2: Why Do They Always Enrol in the School?

Review: I will actually talk about the episode in a bit, but the end of this just made me wonder why? Why do two of the whoever they are (guessing villains but who knows given lack of explanation) enrol in Fuji's school? Even if they are interested in him they have already proven more than … Continue reading Dies Irae Episode 2: Why Do They Always Enrol in the School?

Dies Irae Episode 1: Somewhat Less Confusing

  Review: I was actually kind of pleased at how normal most of this episode was when compared to the stupefying mess that was episode 0. We follow mostly normal high school guy as he is released from hospital, reunites with childhood girlfriend who drags him off to a sword exhibit. Then of course while … Continue reading Dies Irae Episode 1: Somewhat Less Confusing
