After last week's average but not particularly bad episode of this anime, How To Keep A Mummy strikes back with an incredibly adorable return to the formula that made the first episodes of this season so irresistible. And in saying that, what I mean is they introduce a new player into the group who at … Continue reading How To Keep a Mummy Episode 10: A Return To Adorable Formula
Review: Anime has a lot of heart breaking moments that really capture the spirit of what it is to be human, to be alone, and to suffer loss. How To Keep A Mummy doesn't quite manage to land this lofty emotional goal but still delivers something that is cute in its very gentle and obvious … Continue reading How To Keep a Mummy Episode 9: The Oni-Child Crosses The Line
Review: I will admit, my interest in the story this week was a bit hit and miss. The kids realise Connie has been wandering during the day and decide that the monster children need supervision while they are at school and so they turn to a local shrine god to babysit. It is as cute … Continue reading How To Keep a Mummy Episode 8: It’s Monster Day Care and It Is Soooo Cute!
Review: Last week I commented that the growing cast were so cute together. This week adds what I believe to be the final little creature, throws the dog in and actually gives us a photo op moment. Kind of perfect. I love it when a show knows exactly what its selling point is and doesn't … Continue reading How To Keep a Mummy Episode 7: Barking Mummies and Dream Eating Baku
Review: Conny, Isao and Mii-Kun together are making a truly cute team. As much as I didn't like Conny's introductory episode, he adds an interesting dynamic to the trio and of course presents several moments of conflit for a show that might otherwise get a little bit sleepy and dull. But as much as the … Continue reading How To Keep a Mummy Episode 6: A Little Knowledge Can Be Adorable
Review: Okay, so the child-oni turned out to be a bust last week but the addition of a back-pack sized dragon gave this show a nice boost back into being the single most adorable thing ever. Not to mention, despite introducing new cast members, Mii-Kun managed a decent amount of screen time in this episode … Continue reading How To Keep a Mummy Episode 5: Dragon + Mummy = Too Cute
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?
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
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
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
