Now, that isn't to say Castlevania is bad. Because, it actually is quite a fun little romp of a story provided the copious blood and guts being splashed around aren't a problem and the clear sequel bait endings for the surviving cast members doesn't annoy. If this had come out in a solid chunk and I'd binged the 12 episodes altogether, I'd have had an absolute blast...
Yes, we have more Halloween list fun this week as I count down my five favourite anime that have a lot of blood and/or gore. Now I had to think long and hard about my pre-requisite for something ending up on this list because just most amount of gross out moments didn't seem like a … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Anime With Blood and Gore
An anime that started with a fairly poor first episode and pretty much never got any better, Devils' Line was one of my bigger disappointments to come out of the Spring 2018 season. Review: I would really like to start this review with an overview of the story, but unfortunately, I'm not sure there really … Continue reading Devils’ Line Series Review: Get Ready For Dark – And I Am Talking About The Colour Palette Not The Story
And this series slowly pulls into its final station and there it will stay. I'm not sure what kind of ending that was but I know I'm not planning on watching it again to find out. I'll save the rant for the series review. Wow, this is finally done. And while the squad is disbanded … Continue reading Devils’ Line Episode 12: The True Tragedy Is That The Story Might Continue
Turns out everyone is a double agent, or maybe a triple agent, who knows. And now they've walked into a trap. Terrible really. You walk into a building where there are dead homeless people and you just keep proceeding with your mission. Later, you act all shocked that someone set you up. Yep, that is … Continue reading Devils’ Line Episode 11: Oh No – It’s A Trap
This week we get the continuation of Anzai's showdown with the professor on the train, a training sequence, some chat about lost memories and the ongoing conspiracy, a romance sequence, and then a fire. Not really sure which part of that I was supposed to pay attention to. Devils' Line continues to be a bit … Continue reading Devils’ Line Episode 10: Disjointed
And we're back to caring about the fact that people are protesting about the existence of Devils. This anime doesn't really know how to build a consistent tone at all. This episode is a little bit of a mixed bag. We get some more information about Lee and a flash-back to his 'escape' but not … Continue reading Devils’ Line Episode 9: Vigilante ‘Justice’
Vampires and sex have always been fairly connected in stories, but I think Devils' Line has just thrown away the symbolism and really just wants to get Anzai and Tsukasa together. Still not sure why, but whatever. The episode of Devils' Line this week had multiple opportunities to not be a terrible anime. It had … Continue reading Devils’ Line Episode 8: Larger Social Issues Aside, Let’s Focus on Vampire Sex
There's a flaw in the logic that knowing what you are afraid of will allow you to overcome it, and yet at least this seems like Anzai is finally making some progress so that this anime doesn't just go around in circles with Anzai and Tsukasa endlessly. This week I'm actually going to have to … Continue reading Devils’ Line Episode 7: Facing Your Fears Apparently Solves Everything
Last week I made fun of the fact that they seemed to be setting up a conspiracy within the organisation. This week, I'm left wondering just how far up the food chain must the conspiracy go and how long has it been operating given some of the missing information. I'm still confused as to why … Continue reading Devils’ Line Episode 6: How Deep Does This Conspiracy Go?
