Ever have a feeling like you've seen something before? That's what I'm getting from this episode of Tokyo Ghoul: Re. Who has time for questions such as who they are and what their purpose might be when we can plunge into an all out battle at the auction. We've got the doves, aogiri tree and … Continue reading Tokyo Ghoul:Re Episode 4: They All Fight
They seem to be working as a team, but there are so many horrible people here all after their own goal. Seems like nothings changed with Tokyo Ghoul. I know this anime is just getting going and it is building to an operation that looks like it might kick these into motion, but I couldn't … Continue reading Tokyo Ghoul:Re Episode 3: The Bleak Picture Continues
This second episode is painting a bit more of a bleak picture but I'm still left wondering what the point is. The team of not ghoul's are given some explanation in this episode and their personalities are fleshed out a little more, and yet that is possibly to the detriment of my enjoyment considering the … Continue reading Tokyo Ghoul:Re Episode 2: Not Kaneki Thinks He’s Happy
I wasn't entirely convinced I wanted to go back for another round of Tokyo Ghoul but curiosity got the better of me. What did you think of this first episode? I'm not entirely sure what I was supposed to make of this first episode. It wasn't bad, except that there's been a time jump since … Continue reading Tokyo Ghoul:Re First Impressions
This horror anime collection was talked up a lot before the season started, but how did it go in the end? Be sure to share your thoughts on the series in the comments below. Review: There are many creepy moments in this animated horror collection. Some of these include body horror, disgusting imagery, blood, and … Continue reading Junji Ito Collection Series Review: Twisted Tales and Weird Delusions, But Something Is Not Quite Right
I guess it kind of works that for its final story this anime returns to Souichi and to the creepy model giving us a sense of some kind of progress throughout the course of this series of disjointed tales. To be fair, both the stories this week were quite interesting in different ways, and while … Continue reading Junji Ito Collection Episode 12: Not With A Bang But With A Whimper
The first story this week was actually kind of fun in a weird tales kind of way. Random transfer student shows up in town and suddenly weird things start happening. However, it isn't the transfer student who is truly the problem but his appearance acts as a catalyst for some of the tensions in the … Continue reading Junji Ito Collection Episode 11: Return To Weird Stories
I wonder if the Junji Ito Collection anime took it as a challenge when I called it gross last week in my review? This week seemed all about being as gross as possible with the kind of body horror that just leaves a sick taste in your mouth and feeling a little unsettled. The story … Continue reading Junji Ito Collection Episode 10: And I Thought Last Week Was Gross?
Review: There's probably a better word to describe the events of the second story, but gross was the impression I walked away with. Not scary or creepy, because it didn't succeed on either front, but just disgusting. And like all of these stories it lacked sufficient context or grounding of the circumstances to really have … Continue reading Junji Ito Collection Episode 9: So, Gross?
Review: Again two stories though this week I kind of watched both in more or less stunned silence. The first one because by the time you kind of really knew what the story was about it ended and the second one because it was just too weird. The audience sitting through all those deaths just … Continue reading Junji Ito Collection Episode 8: There Are No Words
