Now, that isn't to say Castlevania is bad. Because, it actually is quite a fun little romp of a story provided the copious blood and guts being splashed around aren't a problem and the clear sequel bait endings for the surviving cast members doesn't annoy. If this had come out in a solid chunk and I'd binged the 12 episodes altogether, I'd have had an absolute blast...
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. Haiji at least has his good moments in between being a blatant manipulator whereas Kotaro here is just obnoxious in every single scene he is in. … Continue reading Zombieland Saga Episode 4: Zombies At A Hot Spring
As much as the first episode made a splash and instantly grabbed my attention with its zany and hard hitting first scene and a follow up that was fairly surreal mostly because the audience didn't see it coming, episodes 2 and 3 had an uphill battle to maintain that. Firstly, the surprise is lost. We … Continue reading Zombieland Saga Episodes 2 + 3: With The Gimmick Revealed, Does This Have Staying Power
Right, so I have no idea where this plans to go or whether or not MAL labelling it as an action/horror is accurate. So far I'm getting a very horror/comedy vibe and this first episode is highly entertaining but it left me wondering what they intend to do for the next 11 episodes.
That minor nagging voice from last week telling me this might get better has now been dragged out and beaten to death by common sense. Angels of Death is boring which is the most irredeemable thing something made for entertainment can ever be. I love psychological horror. I love bad horror. Cheesy dialogue. Cliche set … Continue reading Angels of Death Episode 4: This Is The End
Episode 3 continues with the mediocrity and makes it clear that no one really thought through how this would play out as an anime. I'd like to say I was done with this, but there's this minor nagging voice in my head telling me it might get better. There's not much positive to say about … Continue reading Angels of Death Episode 3: Surrender to Game Style Dialogue and Repetition
While the first episode of Angels of Death was intriguing in its atmosphere, episode 2 kind of just walks us through a level with mediocre results. Continuing on directly from the end of episode 1, episode 2 ends with Zack refusing to kill Rachel because of the bored look on her face but promises to … Continue reading Angels of Death Episode 2: When It Feels Like You Are Watching A Play Through Rather Than An Anime
I don't keep it much of a secret that I really enjoy bad horror and yet every now and then something comes along that is so lame, so incredibly poorly executed, and just has so little effort put into it that even with a receptive audience it manages to bore and be completely and totally … Continue reading Calamity of a Zombie Girl Review: Were They Even Trying?
Given I stopped doing episode reviews after episode 4, it should be fairly clear that this anime didn't really do much for me. And normally I would just drop it and call it a day, but I decided to finish watching it. Mostly because the madness of creating an anime season that follows on from … Continue reading Tokyo Ghoul:Re Series Review: This Franchise Demonstrates How Not To Adapt Something
Rachel has woken up in a strange building without much in the way of memories. After talking to a type-writer she gets into the elevator just as she hears an announcement that calls the girl in the basement a sacrifice. After that, things get weird. There's something inherently creepy about hospitals, basements, and isolation and … Continue reading Angels of Death Episode 1: Here’s This Season’s Edgy Show
