Super Lovers Season 2 Series Review

Overview: Super Lovers season 2 picks up with Ren and Haru pretty much where season 1 left off. Their relationship is in limbo. That said, Ren is actively becoming more aggressive in his pursuit of a relationship this season. I reviewed Super Lovers season 2 week to week over on my patreon, however the posts … Continue reading Super Lovers Season 2 Series Review

Super Lovers Season 2 Episode 1

Review: I wasn't planning on reviewing Super Lovers episodically this season because during season 1 I kind of noted that every post on this series had much the same observations. But AnimeLab hasn't released a new episode of Iron Blooded Orphans so now I have a gap in my schedule so here we go. Episode … Continue reading Super Lovers Season 2 Episode 1

Cheer Boys Episode 11

Review: Let's put cheering on hold and deal with all those pesky relationship issues that continue to remain unresolved. That seemed to be the theme this week and while everything here felt a little bit contrived it also felt like they were wrapping up loose ends nicely before the competition. I do feel that the … Continue reading Cheer Boys Episode 11

Cheer Boys Episode 10

Review: I think they made some smart decisions this week with the focus on the characters prior to and after their qualifying performance and leaving out lengthy scenes of various teams performing. We've seen enough cheerleading throughout this show to know what is happening and this way the story kept up its pace and didn't … Continue reading Cheer Boys Episode 10

Cheer Boys Episode 9

Review: Kazu's grandmother doesn't remember him. I don't know whether the lead up to this episode was good or bad. It's been clear for awhile that Kazu's grandmother is not going well and that Kazu is hiding that from Haru. So it wasn't a revelation of any sort. That said, at least it didn't come … Continue reading Cheer Boys Episode 9

Cheer Boys Episode 4

Review: There's something to be said about a show that just goes about it's business quietly. Cheer Boys has a likeable cast of boys slowly learning the ropes of cheerleading. Some of them have personal baggage, they don't always get along, and they sometimes don't succeed. Otherwise, it's just your usual never give up and … Continue reading Cheer Boys Episode 4

Super Lovers Series Review

I've watched week to week and covered this in 100 word stints but not that the final episode has aired, the question becomes whether or not the series as a whole is worth the time. If you want to read my posts about individual episodes, they are here. Overview: The story starts with Haru arriving … Continue reading Super Lovers Series Review

Super Lovers Episode 10

Review: Well, that felt like an unecessary plot complication right at the end of the series. Is that seriously how this is going to end? Last week it was announced that Haruka was coming to Japan and this week she arrives. Admittedly, her arrival does at least force a lot of conversations that should have … Continue reading Super Lovers Episode 10

Super Lovers Episode 9

Review: I've tried and failed to write a review of this episode about four times now. So, I'm going to keep it simple. This episode deals very much with Ren and Ren growing up (and Haru's role in his life). At times I found this episode a little uncomfortable to watch and I know for … Continue reading Super Lovers Episode 9

Super Lovers Episode 7

Review: The misunderstanding continues between Ren and Haru, an assignment needs to be finished, Ren has no emotional depth, and a fever strikes. This episode continues on from exactly where we left and gives us much of the same. While there's nothing wrong with that, it also isn't particularly compelling. Plus, when both out main … Continue reading Super Lovers Episode 7
