Rokuhoudou Yotsuiro Biyori Episode 2: Calming With Just a Hint of Drama

I swear this anime comes with subliminal messages because it is so incredibly relaxing to watch. What did you think of the second episode? There was an indescribably feeling (that I'm still going to try and describe) of absolute relaxation that hit me while watching this. From the slow pace of the interactions between characters, … Continue reading Rokuhoudou Yotsuiro Biyori Episode 2: Calming With Just a Hint of Drama

Lostorage Conflated Wixoss Episode 2: There’s Just No Escape

The rules of WIXOSS have never been overly clear in any version of this anime, but as seasons converge they seem to be trying to set a few things down in stone. Again, this episode was heavily focused on prior events but it isn't just walking us through prior seasons. It is genuinely giving us … Continue reading Lostorage Conflated Wixoss Episode 2: There’s Just No Escape

Full Metal Panic Invisible Victory First Impressions

Despite still not actually writing my reviews of the original Full Metal Panic series (first season, second raid and fumoffu), I'm a huge fan of this franchise and am thrilled it is back. So how does this first episode start off the new anime? There was something very nostalgic about this first episode of Invisible … Continue reading Full Metal Panic Invisible Victory First Impressions

Doreiku The Animation First Impressions

Alright, it is an anime about a device that allows people to turn other people into slaves so expect that things are going to get reasonably dark, but otherwise, how was this first episode? After the first episode to Magical Girl Site, I was a little bit wary starting this one, given the premise of … Continue reading Doreiku The Animation First Impressions

Rokuhoudou Yotsuiro Biyori First Impressions

For those who know my usual tastes in anime, you will know this one doesn't fall in with them at all. Yet there was something definitely soothing about this first episode. Your thoughts? I'm not a major fan of slice of life and normally a first episode where so little happens would have me watching … Continue reading Rokuhoudou Yotsuiro Biyori First Impressions

Cute High Earth Defense Club Happy Kiss First Impressions

I enjoyed the first Cute High Earth Defense Club anime but dropped the sequel mid-way because it just felt repetitive. I wasn't going to pick this up, but a few positive reviews encouraged me to try episode one. I ended up being pleasantly surprise. What did you think of this first episode? What happens when … Continue reading Cute High Earth Defense Club Happy Kiss First Impressions

Steins;Gate 0 First Impressions

It just occurred to me that I haven't reviewed the original Steins;Gate anime. Why I do not know but I'll have to fix that sooner rather than later, in the meantime here are my first thoughts on this spin-off/alternative take thing. Steins;Gate is one of those anime that people tend to fall in love with … Continue reading Steins;Gate 0 First Impressions

Caligula First Impressions

Really wondering if the title is actually referring to the Roman Emperor or if it is something actually relevant to the anime here? Anyway, what were your first impressions? While I will admit I was kind of interested while watching this, I'm also going to point out that unless you read the synopsis before starting … Continue reading Caligula First Impressions

Libra of Nil Admirari First Impressions

Was I really in the market for another historical reverse harem? I'm still not sure about that, but here are my first impressions of Libra of Nil Admirari or Nil Admirari no Tenbin: Teito Genwaku Kitan or whatever else you want to call this. In a historical setting we have a girl who is being … Continue reading Libra of Nil Admirari First Impressions

Sword Art Online Alternative: Gun Gale Online First Impressions

While I love SAO, I have to say Gun Gale isn't my favourite part of it. Mostly because of the whole gun thing rather than swords. Still, this wasn't a bad start. What did you think? Well, if we wanted to know what the actual plot of this spin-off series was going to be, this … Continue reading Sword Art Online Alternative: Gun Gale Online First Impressions
