Controversial Fortunes, Candid Fan Photos, And Helping Bakers

Conception Anime Episode Review Title Image

Episode 5 gave us a beach episode. You won't believe how much dread I felt when I realised this already incredibly borderline show that seems to relish in oozing sleaze, was about to take us to the location where even tame series decide to max out the fan service and innuendo.

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Episode Review Title Image

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Episode 7 Review Was anyone really surprised to see that Rimuru survives everything that goes down this week? If the answer is yes I'd question whether or not they'd watched the episodes up until this point because clearly they haven't been paying attention.

In The Absence of Action, We Get An Attack of the Talking Heads

Sword Art Online Alicization - Episode 6 There was a lot of talking this episode. Like massive amounts of talking. And a lot of it is that weird kind of technobabbly talk that happens when a concept really doesn’t make a lot of sense but the writers are earnestly trying to convince the audience that … Continue reading In The Absence of Action, We Get An Attack of the Talking Heads

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Episode 6: The Importance of Pacing To Build Tension

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Episode 6

Unfortunately, what that means for me is that while I appreciate what That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime is doing and that it is doing it relatively well, I'm never going to be more than casually enjoying this. And that's mostly because every time I start getting seriously into the story because of some development that might potentially be really interesting or dramatic, the story cuts it off at the knees and kind of does a 'ta-da' kind of moment ...

Sword Art Online Alicization Episode 5 - Leafa and Asuna

You know, I had a lot of fun last week seeing Kirito do his thing. As I said in my weekly update, Sword Art Online is most fun when it gives Kirito a sword and a target.

Is it because the studios now-a-days are concentrating in releasing more no. of anime each season rather than 1 or 2 good, quality anime? From anon

Xuan Yuan Sword Luminary Episode 5: Attack of the Poor Animation

Xuan Yuan Sword Luminary Episode 5

Right from episode 1 this anime came across as rough. There was some pretty bad CG and more than a few off model character moments. After that though things kind of settled, until this episode (that isn't saying there aren't some poorer moments in the episodes in between but they weren't noteworthy). Episode 5 on … Continue reading Xuan Yuan Sword Luminary Episode 5: Attack of the Poor Animation

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Episode 5: Past Wrongs and Future Destinies

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Episode 5

I will give this episode credit though because of all the episodes so far, this is the one that has given me the most to think about and the most enjoyment. I really liked seeing the exchange between the King and the dwarf and I really liked the King afterwards putting the other idiot in his place.
