Tuesday’s Top 5: Anime That Use CGI

Tuesday's Top 5

It probably isn't news that a lot of people don't like CGI in their anime. And given some of the efforts at using it,  that's actually pretty understandable. At some point I'm going to have to look at those anime that end up just being an eye-sore, but that isn't today's list. Today I have … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Anime That Use CGI

KADO: The Right Answer Series Review: The Higher They Rise, The Further To Fall

Overview: One day a giant cube appears off the coast of Japan, swallowing a passenger plane. Turns out a visitor from the anisotropic (or outside of the known universe) has come to Earth to give us some gifts. One of the passengers on the plane is a negotiator and he begins the process of communicating … Continue reading KADO: The Right Answer Series Review: The Higher They Rise, The Further To Fall

KADO Episode 12

Review: As this is the final episode, assume major spoilers ahead. Minimal ranting - I'll save that for the whole series review. You know, given zaShunina's development as a character up to this point, it would have been really nice if the revelation that a copy of Shindo wasn't Shindo had actually had some bearing … Continue reading KADO Episode 12

KADO Episode 11

Review: After episodes 9 and 10, I was starting to really worry about where this show was going for a conclusion. I'm still not 100% sold that this is going to end well, but episode 11 definitely made me hopeful that I should have high expectations. Part of what helped was Shindo's approach in this … Continue reading KADO Episode 11

KADO Episode 10

Review - Some spoilers: I very nearly had a complaint about this episode but by the end of its run I was more confused as to whether this episode worked or not with what we already knew and with the tone of the story. After a rewatch, I liked it a bit better but I … Continue reading KADO Episode 10

KADO Episode 9

Review: I came to the conclusion while watching KADO this week that the question I'd been wondering about for most of the series was flawed. I've been trying to figure out what is going on with zaShunina and whether he is actually good or bad, but as this episode points out in relation to the … Continue reading KADO Episode 9

KADO Episode 8

Review: I'm sure I've already said this, but if you haven't given KADO a try this season, you really do need to. While the slow pace and dialogue heavy delivery won't sit well with everyone, the ideas this show develops as the narrative unfolds are well worth it, plus it actually has a fairly excellent … Continue reading KADO Episode 8

Spring 2017 Week 9

Alright, I wasn't crazily looking forward to all the sequel seasons that came out this Spring but most of these have actually turned out to be pretty cool so it has made this season of sequels actually pretty fun to watch. I can't say the same this week for a lot of the shows in … Continue reading Spring 2017 Week 9

KADO Episode 7

Review: Once again this show demonstrates it has a firm grasp on reality even while it introduces some fairly fantastical concepts. From the background of local protesters (upset at Kado's new location) to the businesses making Kado shaped cakes, this show doesn't seem to want to dwell on any one viewpoint in terms of how … Continue reading KADO Episode 7
