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

I want to thank Moyatorium for tagging me on this because I really do enjoy quotes. That said, I'm going to keep these posts pretty short and I'm also going to break the consecutive day rule. I have however, decided to choose quotes from the Autumn 2017 anime season for my 3 days. Rules: Thank … Continue reading 3 Days, 3 Quotes: Day 1 – Sometimes A Little Is A Lot

Land of the Lustrous Series Review: Beautiful But Not Without Flaws

lustrous6d

Overview: Land of the Lustrous kind of took me by surprise during the Autumn 2017 season as its CG animation made it stand out from the crowd but for once in a truly beautiful manner.

Land of the Lustrous Episode 12: Phos’ Resolve

lustrous12c

Review: While this isn't a perfect ending by any means with time wasted on the introduced character who ultimately contributes little to this season (though probably serves some greater purpose later) and overall no actual answers to the greater mysteries of this series, I couldn't help but feel satisfied by how this show came back … Continue reading Land of the Lustrous Episode 12: Phos’ Resolve

Land of the Lustrous Episode 11: I Hate To Say Anti-Climatic But…

lustrous11b

Review: I am a big fan of this show and have thoroughly enjoyed the watch thus far, but episode 11 delivers one thing I find really frustrating. Episode 10 was beautifully tense and dramatic building up to a wonderful climax leaving us with a cliff-hanger. Episode 11 resolves and diffuses any tension from that in … Continue reading Land of the Lustrous Episode 11: I Hate To Say Anti-Climatic But…
