Trickster Episode 13

Review: Inoue and Kobayashi are keeping the detective thing going even though Akechi seems to have bugged out and Hanasaki is moping or wallowing. And it's kind of needed given the events of the last few episodes. To have Hanasaki bounce back and everything be fine would be ridiculous. But the problem is my general … Continue reading Trickster Episode 13

Trickster Episode 12

Review: At the start of this episode it kind of looked like Kobayashi was actually going to do something and maybe we were going to get closer to the mystery of his bubble power but of course, this is Trickster. Instead he simply walks through the chaos (with the occasional bullet getting within what should … Continue reading Trickster Episode 12

Trickster Episode 11

Review: The opening sequence of Trickster this week decided to play around with the visuals instead of sound, though I have to ask why there is suddenly some sort of floating base. Anyway, Hanasaki remains an inept main character and not a particularly interesting one. Amazingly enough after Akechi turns up he regrets being a … Continue reading Trickster Episode 11

Trickster Episode 10

Review: This episode kind of defines everything that is wrong with Trickster. We have one of the core cast members abducted by the guy who has been set up to be the master-mind villain and now he's been taken back to his lair to be brainwashed. That should be an amazingly dramatic episode. Instead we … Continue reading Trickster Episode 10

Trickster Episode 9

Review: So, Trickster, is that really the hand you want to play? Okay, 90% of this episode is boring, predictable, or boringly predictable. We get the conclusion to the whole brother in the compound and it is incredibly anticlimactic and you could almost write every line of dialogue if you just run a sieve through … Continue reading Trickster Episode 9

Trickster Episode 8

Review: Trickster returns to focussing on Hanasaki and his woe is me my brother left me back story. Okay, I don't like his character and I don't feel sorry for him. Plus the brother is seriously delusional if he thinks that you can just declare your own country and then shoot at a police helicopter … Continue reading Trickster Episode 8

Trickster Episode 6

Review: Trickster is continuing to roll along in unspectacular fashion. This week the agency is officially on break from pretending to detect but that won't stop Hanasaki from finding ways to stick his nose into other people's business. Mostly what I took away from this episode is Hanasaki is a genuine idiot. Not the kind … Continue reading Trickster Episode 6

Trickster Episode 3

Review: Confirmed that Hanasaki is a really annoying character. That said, his pep and impulsiveness are kind of needed given the characters around him so it makes him tolerable. It was nice to see Kobayashi start to exhibit some elements of a personality besides wanting to die this episode and the case they worked on … Continue reading Trickster Episode 3

Trickster Episode 2

Review: I'm still intrigued but I'm also certain this show isn't getting any better so those who didn't much find the first episode interesting won't miss much by giving this a pass. Hanasaki may be the most annoying protagonist that I'm watching this season and the mystery this episode was kind of meh but there's … Continue reading Trickster Episode 2
