Hakuoki: Demon of the Fleeting Blossom Season 1 Series Review

Lots of cute guys, historical setting, swords, and a girl disguised as a boy in the middle of it all. Where have I seen that before? Review: This review is going to be a bit difficult to write. Mostly because this anime is fine and I actually think a lot of viewers will really enjoy … Continue reading Hakuoki: Demon of the Fleeting Blossom Season 1 Series Review

Libra of Nil Admirari Episodes 7: Oh No, Not Everyone is Nice

After an encounter with one of the guy's obsessed with black feathers, Kuze is forced to deal with the reality that there is a traitor in their midst. Then again, this anime has a plot aimed at the Prime Minister of Japan and yet can't stay focused on that for three seconds because there's so … Continue reading Libra of Nil Admirari Episodes 7: Oh No, Not Everyone is Nice

Libra of Nil Admirari Episodes 6: Tragic Back Story Time

Fairly standard plot development for this kind of anime. Focus on one guy and show us why he's all damaged, have the heroine 'rescue' him and suddenly he's all hers. This episode focuses on Hisui, though I'm not sure why given he's probably been the least interesting character to date. And they decide to look … Continue reading Libra of Nil Admirari Episodes 6: Tragic Back Story Time

Libra of Nil Admirari Episodes 2 – 5: Pretty Standard Harem, Poor Mystery

Having dropped SAO Alternative: GGO I decided to review this anime episode to episode. While it isn't amazing, it has so far kept me more interested than Alternative and there's definitely some potential here even if my hopes aren't overly high. Episode 2: A perfectly average second episode with  the full array of pretty boys … Continue reading Libra of Nil Admirari Episodes 2 – 5: Pretty Standard Harem, Poor Mystery

Death March to the Parallel World Rhapsody 2 Light Novel Review: The Harem Expands

Review: When I reviewed the first book in this series I was pleasantly surprised by the writing even if the plot did seem padded and there were definitely moments in the story I could have done with out. As we plunge into the second book, I have to wonder why people think more is better? … Continue reading Death March to the Parallel World Rhapsody 2 Light Novel Review: The Harem Expands

Sengoku Night Blood Episode 9: No Bad Guys Here

Review: This story is determined to only make the yakuma actually bad because everytime we have one of these war lords looking all scary and intimidating (and actually being intimidating given our heroine has been kidnapped, locked in a shed, and - by our most recent contender - threatened with death if she tries to … Continue reading Sengoku Night Blood Episode 9: No Bad Guys Here

Code Realize ~Guardian of Rebirth~ Episode 9: Rallying the Troops

Review: Right, so we still don't actually know what Code Realize is, other than a plot to destroy the world for reasons unknown. And we still don't know what Idea is actually up to or what they think the 'correct' course is for humanity, other than they think killing Cardia is a step in the … Continue reading Code Realize ~Guardian of Rebirth~ Episode 9: Rallying the Troops

Sengoku Night Blood Episode 8: Pass the Parcel?

Review: So Yuzuki has now officially met all of the important characters as she's been taken for visits, been abducted, found, abducted again, abducted from the abductors, etc, etc, etc. I'm not sure that any of this makes for a plot that makes sense but at least someone finally put together the basic point that … Continue reading Sengoku Night Blood Episode 8: Pass the Parcel?

Code: Realize ~Guardian of Rebirth~ Episode 8: The Enemy of My Enemy

Review: For an episode that actually had a pretty dramatic ending (predictable but still dramatic) the rest of this episode just kind of felt like it was going through the motions. London is burning, soldiers are rebelling, and Cardia and Lupin return, reunite with the others and decide to save the Queen. I don't know … Continue reading Code: Realize ~Guardian of Rebirth~ Episode 8: The Enemy of My Enemy
