Hataage! Kemono Michi Episode 3 Review

Is anyone else concerned about the size of the cages some of those demon beasts are being kept in while Genzo sorts out his pet shop? Of course, that's a side-note as this episode introduces a dragon girl into the mix.


Ascendance of a Bookworm Episode 2

Episode 2 of Ascendance of a Bookworm is as underwhelming as the first. While that's not a huge surprise, what I'm finding more of a surprise is how close to dropping this I am. I'll give it a third episode but honestly I'm not sold on Main and her quest to find or make a book.

Shinchou Yuusha: Kono Yuusha ga Ore Tueee Kuse ni Shinchou Sugiru Episode 2 Review

While individually both the hero and the goddess aren't exactly great, when played against one another, Cautious Hero manages to actually be kind of funny and honestly I'm enjoying this different approaching to 'heroing' so far. While not great by any means, this one is probably a keeper for the season.

Didn’t I Say To Make My Abilities Average in the Next Life Episode 1

Another isekai, and this one I've recently read the source of. Fortunately, this first episode, while starting in an odd place, is actually a pretty decent set up and fun to watch so hopefully we've got a decent adaptation on our hands.

Arifureta: From Common Place to World’s Strongest Review Episode 13

At last Arifureta the anime comes to an end with the addition of one more harem member and a ride toward whatever adventure these characters have next. And apparently we're going to see that in anime form despite the many issues this season has had. There's no justice from the gods of sequels.

Ascendance of a Bookworm Episode 1

If I actually scored anime this one would get points for being a story about a bookworm and then lose quite a few for being incredibly dull in its first episode. While I'll give it some more time, the slice of life tag and the general nothingness going on in this first episode aren't exactly screaming that I should keep going.

Arifureta: From Common Place to World’s Strongest Review Episodes 11 + 12

Rush, rush, rush. Finishing the guild mission, acquiring Tio, and straight into saving Myu before we jump to the heroes' party getting their butts kicked in the dungeon. Good to know Arifureta isn't going to change its tune this late in the season. One episode to go and then this mess is over. Read more...

Shinchou Yuusha: Kono Yuusha ga Ore Tueee Kuse ni Shinchou Sugiru Episode 1

Oh look, another isekai. Right after finishing the wrestling one I move onto this. And we get another gimmick; in this case the hero might be fairly strong starting out but he's also almost pathologically cautious. Will the useless goddess convince him to be a hero or is this world doomed?
