Trickster Episode 13

Review: Inoue and Kobayashi are keeping the detective thing going even though Akechi seems to have bugged out and Hanasaki is moping or wallowing. And it's kind of needed given the events of the last few episodes. To have Hanasaki bounce back and everything be fine would be ridiculous. But the problem is my general … Continue reading Trickster Episode 13

Trickster Episode 12

Review: At the start of this episode it kind of looked like Kobayashi was actually going to do something and maybe we were going to get closer to the mystery of his bubble power but of course, this is Trickster. Instead he simply walks through the chaos (with the occasional bullet getting within what should … Continue reading Trickster Episode 12

Trickster Episode 11

Review: The opening sequence of Trickster this week decided to play around with the visuals instead of sound, though I have to ask why there is suddenly some sort of floating base. Anyway, Hanasaki remains an inept main character and not a particularly interesting one. Amazingly enough after Akechi turns up he regrets being a … Continue reading Trickster Episode 11

Trickster Episode 6

Mostly what I took away from this episode is Hanasaki is a genuine idiot. Not the kind … Continue reading Trickster Episode 6

Trickster Episode 5

Review: And we're still playing hide and seek in the waterways for this episode of Trickster. Akechi forces more information out of the guy in hospital while Hanasaki finally gets released from school. Meanwhile Inoue tells Kobayashi to save himself and to leave him (which being Kobayashi he agrees to leaving Inoue in a heartbeat, … Continue reading Trickster Episode 5

Trickster Episode 4

Review: Trickster, I have news for you. Playing dramatic music at the end of an unresolved episode does not make the generic events of your episode anymore compelling or intriguing. I guess I shouldn't complain too much. They finally have something resembling an actual mystery though the whole set-up seems pretty pointless and I'm kind … Continue reading Trickster Episode 4

Trickster Episode 3

Review: Confirmed that Hanasaki is a really annoying character. That said, his pep and impulsiveness are kind of needed given the characters around him so it makes him tolerable. It was nice to see Kobayashi start to exhibit some elements of a personality besides wanting to die this episode and the case they worked on … Continue reading Trickster Episode 3
