What Does The Best Horror Anime Need? Part 1

Another October rolls around and it is time to decide on what I'll be watching for Halloween. In the meantime though, I'm wondering what the best horror anime would actually need to be good. Here is part one of the discussion.

Attack on Titan Review Season 3 Part 2 Episode 5

Just wow. Episode 5 Wow! Ouch! Wow again. And let’s throw an ‘ooh’ in there for good measure. Yep, episode 5 of Attack on Titan Season 3 Part 2 has rendered me effectively speechless and trying to describe the emotional response to this episode results in onomatopoeia, word salad, and mostly inarticulate phrases. Shock, horror, … Continue reading Attack on Titan Review Season 3 Part 2 Episode 5

The Promised Neverland Episode 4 Review: Emma, Norman and Ray continue to advance the escape plans but with two plotting adults and a potential traitor there's a lot to be done. This episode maintains the feeling of suspense though perhaps loses something in atmosphere.

Zombieland Saga Episode 4

Kotaro as the manager is doing a good job at fighting with Haiji from Run With The Wind for gaining the title of most obnoxious character of the season.
