Dies Irae Series Review: A Hard Pass On This One

Overview: Weird guys with supernatural powers descend on a town intending to sacrifice it for some more power and Fujii Ren is apparently going to try to stop them. I'm not going to pretend like the story in this actually makes any sense or that it matters so that'll do for an overview. Review: As … Continue reading Dies Irae Series Review: A Hard Pass On This One

The Worst of Autumn 2017

Something different this season, I'm starting with the worst so that the best can follow. I will admit, this season the poll had the most votes for worst anime of the season and there was a clear winner fairly early on. So, first I'll share my picks for worst of the season (keeping in mind … Continue reading The Worst of Autumn 2017

Dies Irae Episode 11: I’m Done

Review: While I know there are more episodes of this to come out online, I held out until the season finished and now I am done with this absolute mess of a show. It has never made sense and never improved. It is just full of pointless fights, random powers, and lots of speeches and … Continue reading Dies Irae Episode 11: I’m Done

Dies Irae Episode 10: Blah, Blah

Review: This episode finished off the fight at the hospital but mostly we just went between different people talking about stuff that doesn't make a lot of sense and the characters reinforced the fact that none of them actually get on with each other and then the hospital went boom. Yeah, at some point Marie … Continue reading Dies Irae Episode 10: Blah, Blah

Autumn 2017 Week 11

Welcome to week 11 and we are nearing the final episodes of most shows (or the halfway point of a couple). Autumn has been an excellent season for anime watching and I'm almost sad to see it end but I'm also really excited to see how some of these shows wrap up. As always, I'd … Continue reading Autumn 2017 Week 11

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
