Hataage! Kemono Michi Episode 1

It's that time of the season where we are taste testing the new shows as they come out. No decision on a watch list just yet but I'm going to check out as many first episodes as I can. Incidentally, this one isn't an instant drop, but it isn't exactly a high priority. Isekai about an animal loving wrestler isn't exactly shouting 'must watch'.

Isekai Cheat Magician Review Episode 12

When the title actually claims he's a cheat magician I guess we had to expect a sudden power-up in the midst of battle to save the day. And so Isekai Cheat Magician comes to an unremarkable end.

Maou-Sama, Retry! Review Episodes 11 + 12

There are legitimately no words for how dull Maou-Sama Retry has become. As we cut between pairs of characters talking about stuff the overwhelming sense of nothing happening becomes unavoidable. Oh well, we're hopefully nearly done.

Arifureta: From Common Place to World’s Strongest Review Episodes 9 + 10

Arifureta continues to plough through its source content bringing us the third member of Hajime's harem and a monster army march on a village in the space of two episodes.

Isekai Cheat Magician Review Episode 9

War came, army marched, war over. I'm pretty sure they will throw something a bit more threatening at Taichi and Rin before the end of the season but this episode was just a little pathetic.

Isekai Cheat Magician Review Episode 8

Well, if you were hanging out to find out who summoned Taichi to the fantasy world, episode 8 brings you an answer. It doesn't do a whole lot else other than an entire scene change and all new characters... I wonder if we'll get a chance to actually know these characters before war break out?

Maou-Sama, Retry! Review Episode 9

Here we go setting up the business and that's about all for this episode. Yep, we meet the new aide, get the first guest, do some shopping, and watch the bunnies bathing, but realistically this is as slice of life as things get and there's a palpable sense of stagnation in this episode.
