Tuesday’s Top 5: Visually Interesting Anime in 2017

The final top 5 of 2017 list and this week I am focusing on those shows that I just found interesting to look at for whatever reason. Maybe they were pretty or set somewhere interesting, or maybe they were just plain bizarre, but they are shows that when I think about them I remember the … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Visually Interesting Anime in 2017

Tuesday’s Top 5: Opening Themes in 2017

Last year I wrote my list on the top opening themes of 2016 and unsurprisingly Yuri On Ice's History Maker took out the top spot. This year there wasn't a single stand out song that really stuck with me, but there were lots of opening themes that really matched their show so it ended up … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Opening Themes in 2017

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

Spring 2017 Week 11

This is my final Spring List though I will be posting the results of my polls when I get back at the end of July. If you haven't voted yet for what you think the best and worst of the season have been, the links are at the bottom of this post. The vote for … Continue reading Spring 2017 Week 11

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

Spring 2017 Week 10

We're getting close to the end for some of these shows and I'd love to know which ending you are most looking forward to. For me, I'm actually just kind of sad that I'm going to have to wait on some of the endings because I may or may not get to see them while … Continue reading Spring 2017 Week 10

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
