Given Live-Action Episode 1 Impressions – The Sound and Sweetness

Given Episode 1

It's here! A Given live action adaptation and while it took awhile to get used to Uenoyama and Mafuyu as real actors and not in anime form, this first episode is pretty great. Apparently there will be six episodes in this adaptation so I'm not sure how far through the story we'll get.

Seirei Gensouki Episode 3 Impressions – Blame the Commoner

Seirei Gensouki episode 3 Review

Episode 3 of Seirei Gensouki seems to have wrapped up Rio's time at school. I still kind of wish the side characters had a bit more personality about them but this was a pleasant enough third episode with the promise of the story expanding in the next episode. Be sure to read the full review.

Seirei Gensouki Episode 2 Impressions – One Dimensional Bullies and Wooden Sword Fights

Seirei Gensouki Episode 2 Review

While Seirei Gensouki still seems very much in set-up stage it has done enough to intrigue me. That said, it wasn't the introduction of sad b-grade antagonists that won me over and this episode has two of them. Be sure to read the full review.

Fruits Basket: The Final Season Episode 13 Impressions – The Long Epilogue of a Narrative Continued

Fruits Basket Final Season Episode 13 Review

Post Sponsored by Crow's World of Anime. You know, I thought I was being a little sarcastic last week when I said the episode felt a bit like a Lord of the Rings like epilogue. However, episode 13 of Fruits Basket more or less consolidates the feeling of an ending that really needed to just be cut short.

Fruits Basket: The Final Season Episode 12 Impressions – The Long Epilogue of a Narrative

Fruits Basket Episode 12

Post Sponsored by Crow's World of Anime. It was kind of inevitable that whatever came after the emotional heights of episode 11 was going to be a bit of a let down. Admittedly, Fruits Basket made a solid attempt at tugging the heart strings this week but this is definitely the start of a long epilogue that won't conclude until one more episode.

Fruits Basket: The Final Season Episode 11 Impressions – An Unforgettable Episode

Fruits Basket Final Episode 11

Post Sponsored by Crow's World of Anime. Oh wow. Seriously, if someone told me Fruits Basket was now finished, even though there's few things I would still like to see happen and still know, I feel like episode 11 of the final season has given me what I needed to feel like this story can now close. So happy right now.
