Granblue Fantasy season 2 gives us another luke warm showing as the crew crash onto a misty island inhabited by friendly zombies.
Another two episodes of Assassins Pride and I'm thoroughly convinced that this anime doesn't know what it wants to be. Between school slice of life antics, tournaments that are over before they start and supernatural drama there's so many possible paths and yet no clarity or focus. The end result is that by episode 6 I'm finding myself watching the clock more than the show.
While the Crimson Vow didn't learn the lesson Reina was aiming for, this episode probably taught them all the value of finishing a job. Didn't I Say To Make My Abilities Average in the Next Life takes a small detour from light and frothy fun for a look at the slightly more serious side of a hunter's job.
It is tragic and not-so-tragic backstory time for the girls of Crimson Vow in Didn't I Say To make My Abilities Average in the Next Life episode 5.
Well it took the whole episode but we finally get a resolution to the Vira/Katalina story. Lots of things going boom this week but not a lot else to write about.
Okay, after last week's reveal this week returns to Melida's school life and they pull a Goblet of Fire move by nominating her and Elise to be the school representatives in a tournament. I fear that Elise's character is starting to be a bit of a drain on this series, but otherwise this episode works well enough.
What greater horror than realising an anime that initially promises potential will not fulfil any of it? Here is Afterlost, a champion at broken promises and fairly dull story-telling.
The girls are ready to start taking on quests but between greedy merchants and facing past traumas it isn't going to be all smooth sailing. However, Didn't I Say To Make My Abilities Average in the Next Life continues to be just a bit of light fun for the week.
Way too much flashback on Vira and Katalina at this point. Largely because even though this time we had Vira's perspective it added little new knowledge. Here we are with Granblue Fantasy Seaon 2 Episode 4.
I'm a little worried about the direction Assassins Pride seems to be heading after this episode. I did enjoy parts of the episode but there's definitely a few red flags getting raised and we're only three episodes in.
