In Another World With My Smartphone Episode 4: Touya Might Redefine Overpowered At This Rate

Review Episode 4: In Another World With My Smartphone is very good at making me smile. The show is stupid, and it is playing on every cliché and trope you would expect from an isekai anime, now including the random Princess character who has decided she absolutely must marry the protagonist even if that means … Continue reading In Another World With My Smartphone Episode 4: Touya Might Redefine Overpowered At This Rate

In Another World With My Smartphone Episodes 2 + 3: Touya to the Rescue

Review Episode 2: I think the best way to describe this show is lighthearted. It isn't taking itself seriously, nor is it trying to be a serious comedy. It's walking very obviously through seen tropes but it isn't trying to apologise for that or subvert them. It's just telling the story it wants to tell … Continue reading In Another World With My Smartphone Episodes 2 + 3: Touya to the Rescue

Knight’s & Magic Episodes 2 + 3: Well, He’s Remarkably Self-Assured

Review Episode 2: I'll start out by saying I enjoyed episode 2 but that title with the unnecessary apostrophe is really starting to bug. Much like the excessive number of exclamation marks in some titles. So, let's actually review the episode and to be honest this was pretty fun. Okay, it is an extended fighting … Continue reading Knight’s & Magic Episodes 2 + 3: Well, He’s Remarkably Self-Assured

The Silver Guardian Episode 11

Review: I love that this show has absolutely zero sense of urgency or desire to actually deal with its main plot. Otherwise, I might actually start to feel concerned for some of the characters. Instead, our kidnap victim is now doing a Princess Leia impersonation and for some reason joining weird cult guys though we … Continue reading The Silver Guardian Episode 11

Hand Shakers Episodes 1 + 2

Overview: Tazuna is a high school student who likes to fix machines and has a really annoying habit of saying things are meshing (or not meshing) like this is the best catchphrase ever. He meets a girl in a hospital bed and after they hold hands he goes somewhere else where he's attacked by another … Continue reading Hand Shakers Episodes 1 + 2

Soul Eater Series Review

Welcome to my 50th anime series review! And it's a special one: Soul Eater. Overview: The DWMA (Death Weapon Meister Academy) operates in Death city and works to train Weapons (people who can transform into weapons) and Meisters (those who can wield weapons) in order to fight against evil souls, witches and whatever else get's … Continue reading Soul Eater Series Review

Taboo Tattoo Episode 6

Review: This episode was not a train wreck. That isn't to say it was good, but as an episode it was actually pretty functional. Yes, there is a totally unnecessary Princess-groping-lacking sequence but ignoring that we actually got a reasonable story with Seigi and some guy name either BB or Blood infiltrating a facility, BB … Continue reading Taboo Tattoo Episode 6

Taboo Tattoo Episode 1 + 2

Overview: Justice Akatsuka helps a guy out and get's given a weird tattoo. Turns out the tattoo is a secret weapon and now there are all sorts of interesting people turning up. Review Episode 1: This is as by the numbers as they come. Kid with strong sense of justice and some combat ability (but … Continue reading Taboo Tattoo Episode 1 + 2
