elDLIVE Series Review

Overview: Chuta is a normal student except that he has a voice that he hears and talks to making people look at him a bit strangely. Turns out, the voice belongs to an alien Monatelian and now Chuta's been recruited in elDLIVE to assist the space police as they crack down on aliens committing crimes … Continue reading elDLIVE Series Review

Winter 2017 Final List

As the title says, this is my final list for the Winter 2017 season. This was not an amazing season of anime for me. Lots of rom-coms and slice of life shows that just didn't do much for me (though I've enjoyed shows in both of these genres previously), a few sequels that didn't manage … Continue reading Winter 2017 Final List

elDLIVE Episode 12

Review: Amazingly enough we didn't get any kind of twist. The spy was Vega. We do get an angsty reason why and in the end we save him but seriously for a season finale having the recently introduced character turn out to be a traitor and call that a wrap on the season is just … Continue reading elDLIVE Episode 12

elDLIVE Episode 11

Review: There's actually a half decent set-up in this episode with the villains demanding Chuta get handed over and the spy in elDLIVE (though it seems like it is obvious who that is unless they are just playing us). However, as always, elDLIVE decides to strangle itself by spending the first third of the episode … Continue reading elDLIVE Episode 11

elDLIVE Episode 10

Review: For a show that supposedly has only 12 episodes they really aren't making any effort to bring this season to any kind of climax. We get another kind of throw-away investigation of the week episode with some bare minimum character development propped against it in episode 10. And also a random introduction to yet … Continue reading elDLIVE Episode 10

elDLIVE Episode 9

Review: I really wish that this show hadn't tried to shove all the new characters into Chuta's class at school. It just seems incredibly pointless and the ongoing human ignorance of alien presence ("what is that cosplay?") is just getting ridiculous. Even the citizens of Sunnydale eventually woke up that they were living on a … Continue reading elDLIVE Episode 9

elDLIVE Episode 8

Review: There were moments this episode where I was having a great time. Then there were other moments when I was wondering why I'm still watching this show. Early in the episode I had one of those flash-back moments to Scooby Doo but then we moved to some slightly more high stakes drama and it … Continue reading elDLIVE Episode 8

elDLIVE Episode 7

Review: Well, we are no closer to figuring out what Misuzu's fate is going to be, but this episode does offer some interesting moments. I get the feeling Dr Love is going to be a highly entertaining addition. He isn't afflicted with ongoing stupidity like so many of the cast have been, and he really … Continue reading elDLIVE Episode 7

elDLIVE Episode 6

Review:  Misuzu is being interrogated for releasing a prisoner and they have film of her doing it but it turns out that she probably doesn't remember doing it because she was some sort of test subject and is being medicated. Not sure how  that makes it not her fault (or the fault of those supervising … Continue reading elDLIVE Episode 6

elDLIVE Episode 5

Review: Must be the week for shows suddenly kicking things into gear and actually getting them right. elDLIVe really delivered an episode full of action, emotion, and just good fun. It wasn't that anything in the episode was all that far removed from what we've seen so far. Chuta is still full of guilt about … Continue reading elDLIVE Episode 5
