Grimm’s Notes The Animation Series Review

The quality of the story here is certainly grim. In case it hasn't become clear as I work my way through the anime I watched during the 2019 Winter Season, I'm jumping back and forth between anime I enjoyed a lot and anime that kind of had a bumpier ride. Last week was the slice … Continue reading Grimm’s Notes The Animation Series Review

Grimms Notes Episode 7 and 8 Review - This one has far and away been the underperformer of the season. With an interesting concept at its core, it just never manages to emotionally connect and so far character development or motivation has been somewhat underwhelming.

Grimms Notes Episode 4: They kind of need to explain motives soon because this episode did a good job of making me want to back the villains. Still, at least we got Ex's backstory so he feels a little more real in a fairly artificial setting.

100 Sleeping Princes and the Kingdom of Dreams Episode 12: And Somehow This Resolved

Last week I said the only way this could be resolved in a way that would make sense would be the characters waking up from a dream. Well the characters didn't wake up and this ending does not make sense other than the power of friendship, prayers and dreams. Now why on earth did I expect anything more?

100 Sleeping Princes and the Kingdom of Dreams Episode 11: Confusing Villain Motivations – Check

100 Sleeping Princes and the Kingdom of Dreams

I'm almost hoping that this series ends with the characters waking up and realising the whole thing was all just a dream because that's about the only way this is going to make actual sense.
