It's easy to criticise shows (even ones you love) and focus in on their missteps, misdeeds, or just things you personally dislike but sometimes it pays to step back and remember all the things you love about an anime. For me, this means taking a moment to appreciate a fight scene that was both a thrilling action moment in an anime and also an amazing character moment from the first season of DanMachi. Check out the full post.
The Hero And The Pretender One Punch Man Season 2 Episode 7 The S Class heroes are finally on the move against the monsters, not that the audience or One Punch Man cares given how little screen time the catastrophe striking multiple cities is given. Instead our focus is either on the end of the … Continue reading One Punch Man Review Season 2 Episodes 7 + 8
Everybody is Monster Fighting Episode 6 Monsters outside the arena and monsters inside it. This episode keeps cutting between the two and both are interesting enough in their own way. Alright, I’ll be honest. I liked this episode a lot because we got quite a lot of Genos. Genos left the arena to go fight … Continue reading One Punch Man Review Season 2 Episode 6
Sirius the Jaeger is actually great fun. We have a group called the Jaegers hunting down vampires and trying to exterminate them, meanwhile the vampires are conspiring with political activists and the like to get some shady and nebulous plot off the ground. It is a great set up and the pre-World War 2 setting really helps to allow some credibility for some of the goings on here.
Review: I was really happy to see some of the old Phos back this week. They certainly are still not the Phos we met at the start of the season, but they have definitely not lost all of their spunk which was kind of a welcome sight. I certainly had a good laugh when she … Continue reading Land of the Lustrous Episode 10: Bort, Phos & Dia
Review: I really love how shows go from telling us nothing, to revealing something and then every single character in the show just openly talks about that thing as if it was always obvious (by the way that was sarcasm). ACCA did the same thing when Jean's past was identified and suddenly everyone just kind … Continue reading UQ Holder Episode 10: Tota is a…
Overview: Time eating demons have stolen Victor's time leaving him looking younger and without memories of the past 12 years. Together with his son they are hunting the demon that ate his time in order to get it back. Review: This actually should have been kind of fun. Two guys with weapons that can slow … Continue reading Chronos Ruler Series Review: Cool Concept Does Not Equal Good Story
Overview: A guy who is apparently a genius programmer (the synopsis told me so) is killed but then is reborn in a fantasy world where he can use his somehow remembered understanding of programming to use magic and build robots. Now he wants to build his dream robot. Review - Some spoilers: I was watching … Continue reading Knight’s & Magic Series Review: It Is Going To Take More Than Duct Tape To Fix This Mess
Review: The fight from last week continues and naturally they both get in over their heads until the orphan boy comes back to defend them. I don't know why so many writers think this is a good idea for a scenario. The two super powered immortals just got totally wiped out (one sealed and one … Continue reading UQ Holder Episode 5: More Secrets
Review: From the first episode with the Boar, this show has been a little bit peculiar. For all the good qualities it has, the one thing it has failed to do is grab my attention. The third episode with the Chicken came the closest because her character had a little bit of humour about her, … Continue reading Juni Taisen Episode 4: Nobody Died, Though My Interest Took A Hit
