Well, I got to give it to them, it's not perfect but Bungo Stray Dogs did manage to tie up most of the loose ends. Not only that but they found a way t make use of all those background episodes, even brought back Francis. His episode remains my favourite in what has been a … Continue reading Bungo Stray Dogs 3 – ep 12: The Precipice
Stop me if you've heard this before but this season of Bungo Stray Dogs is just amazing. Everyone, please go by a manga or DVD or something and show the franchise some love. Mama is gonna need a season 4 of this. For this time, and this one time only, I will be mama. This is … Continue reading Bungo Stray Dogs 3 – ep 11: Generations
This season of Bungo Stray Dogs is just knocking it out of the park as far as I'm concerned. The only thing I can seriously fault it for is that there are only two episodes left which means we are definitely not resolving the greater arc. The Rats n the House of the Dead will live … Continue reading Bungo Stray Dogs 3 – ep 10: A Strange Time To Burry Hatchets
I tell you, Friday could not come soon enough this week. Well, that's true of pretty much every week but this week had the added thrill of me looking forward to Bungo Stray Dogs with bated breath. Not only did last week's episode end on a pretty great cliffhanger but I've also been listening to … Continue reading Bungo Stray Dogs 3 – ep 9: Not Playing Fair
This week has been pretty crazy for me. I've hardly had time to watch any anime at all. In fact, I haven't watched anything since Monday. I was a little anime starved and as I have been enjoying Bungo Stray Dogs so much lately, I was really looking forward to this episode for many reasons. … Continue reading Bungo Stray Dogs 3 – ep 8: This is Bad For My Heart
Although I did enjoy the second season of Bungo Stray Dogs, I always felt that the Guild was a bit of a let down as a villain. None of their members really lived up to the Port Mafia and Francis himself just couldn't hold a candle to Mori. Of course, I have a marked weak … Continue reading Bungo Stray Dogs 3 – ep 7: Francis the Frugal
I don't know what's going on this week. I've watched a few anime that I've really enjoyed but also made me cry. It's been a very bittersweet sort of week. And Bungo Stray Dogs fits right in! This week it seems we are continuing on the foundational work of developing characters which really should have … Continue reading Bungo Stray Dogs 3 – ep 6: Father’s Day
Every Friday after I finish the latest episode of Bungo Stray Dogs' season 3, I think the exact same thing to myself: Gowsh - I can't wait to see the next one! This should give you a clue about how this review is going to go! Let me just say right off the bat, the writing … Continue reading Bungo Stray Dogs 3 – ep 5: The Girl With The Flowing Black Hair
While at first it seems Ai is just another overly cute anime protagonist who is going to save the world with peppiness, there are a lot of dark undertones to the world in Sunday Without God and the plot never shies away from dealing with these. And Ai, to her credit, tackles most obstacles head on with very little denial of reality of insistence that something isn't right. She works to overcome things on her own.
Review: Once again we get two creepy stories with neither one really pushing into actually being scary so much as strange and a little unsettling. What horror I did find in the second story came from my own dislike of puppets and marionettes which was firmly embedded when I was a child. And, just saying, … Continue reading Junji Ito Collection Episode 4: Did I Ever Mention I Find Puppets Creepy?
