Juni Taisen Episode 7: Is It Wrong That The Corpse Is More Interesting Than The Character?

Review: At this stage I've more or less resigned myself to the story walking through predictable patterns. Even the possible showdown between Ox and Tiger was kind of inevitable if the story didn't change path given they are the second and third animals in the zodiac. Still, I kind of wanted more from Snake and … Continue reading Juni Taisen Episode 7: Is It Wrong That The Corpse Is More Interesting Than The Character?

Chain Chronicle – The Light of Haecceitas Series Review

Overview: The Black King has stolen half of the chain chronicle (which apparently documents everything that happens in the world) and now he's using it to engulf the world in darkness. The heroes have already tried to defeat him and failed, but have they given up hope? I reviewed Chain Chronicle week to week so … Continue reading Chain Chronicle – The Light of Haecceitas Series Review

Granblue Fantasy Episode 4

Review: Stories like this always make me ask the same question; how does the empire even function? When every representative you meet of said empire is conspiring against every other, cruel and stupid, malicious, or crazy, it really makes you wonder why the entire empire hasn't just imploded. They haven't given us any reason for … Continue reading Granblue Fantasy Episode 4

Granblue Fantasy Episode 2

Review: I had a very bad flashback to Crocodile Dundee while watching this ("That's not a knife"). Only in this case it was more, "That's not a fireball" right before the impossibly large dragon that looked like it escaped from a Final Fantasy game blew the hydra from last episode away (if you don't get … Continue reading Granblue Fantasy Episode 2

Granblue Fantasy Episode 1

Overview: Gran and the not flying lizard Vyrn live on an island doing their thing when a kind of girl gets blown out of an airship and lands in the forest. Gran of course goes to help and now they have a whole bunch of soldiers chasing them. Review: Most of this first episode passed … Continue reading Granblue Fantasy Episode 1

Chain Chronicle – The Light of Haecceitas Episode 12

Review: Hey, after 12 episodes I finally spelt the name right on the first go instead of the fifth. There's an achievement. Anyway, this ends pretty much exactly the way you would expect given the story so far. It's never done more than be a standard sword and sorcery fantasy and the ending, in all … Continue reading Chain Chronicle – The Light of Haecceitas Episode 12

Tales of Zestiria the X Season 2 Episode 11

Review (spoilers, no attempt to not reveal information): Possibly the whole Dezel sacrificing himself to blow away the dragons so that Sorey isn't forced to either attempt mass purification (which cannot end well) or to accept that maybe shooting them is the only option could have been dramatic and moving. Certainly his farewell to Rose … Continue reading Tales of Zestiria the X Season 2 Episode 11

Tales of Zestiria the X Season 2 Episode 10

Review: Remembering way back when I started season 1 of this, one of me key issues was that the characters didn't feel like they were part of the world. The world was pretty and the characters were pretty, but the two didn't match. As time went on, this kind of got less noticeable (either because … Continue reading Tales of Zestiria the X Season 2 Episode 10

Chain Chronicle – The Light of Haecceitas Episode 10

Review: Right, I had a lot of fun with this episode, so my criticisms are not enough to detract from the overall enjoyment of the free-for-all being set up but at the same time I am concerned that there were so many issues in this episode. The main one being time. Somehow we've all regrouped … Continue reading Chain Chronicle – The Light of Haecceitas Episode 10

Chain Chronicle – The Light of Haecceitas Episode 9

Review: This episode feels like it is Aram's graduation ceremony. From boy picked up by former hero, to ambitious idol of Yuri, to reluctantly taking on the role of the hero, to actually being a hero, Aram's journey throughout Chain Chronicle has been interesting. It really feels like this is where he was always heading … Continue reading Chain Chronicle – The Light of Haecceitas Episode 9
