Reflections on Anime in 2016 – The Best and The Worst of the Year (in my opinion)

It's the first day of the year so let's look back at the year that was. I know that at the end of Summer I did my first reflection post looking back at the anime I'd watched and  I purposefully left D Gray Man and Sailor Moon Crystal 3 off the lists because nostalgia was … Continue reading Reflections on Anime in 2016 – The Best and The Worst of the Year (in my opinion)

The Lost Village Series Review

As I side note to the review, I just hit my 200th post. Kind of feels sad that it is The Lost Village review. Overview: 30 people try to escape their lives by taking a tour on a bus to Nanaki village. However, the village is not what it seems and they soon find themselves … Continue reading The Lost Village Series Review

The Lost Village Episode 11

Review: With one episode left to go this series pulled out all the stops and let the characters run around like crazy. We've had theories, announcements, hints, and declarations flying all over the place and while the mystery of Nanaki village is now kind of explained (or you can at least come to your own … Continue reading The Lost Village Episode 11

The Lost Village Episode 10

A day late, but here we go. Review: Uh-huh. That is kind of the sum total of my thoughts for this episode. To elaborate further, Mitsumune has apparently actually made it back to the real world (though it kind of seems like this is going to be proven false eventually) and his dad is all … Continue reading The Lost Village Episode 10

Spring Overview Week 9

Week 9 has come and gone and I am definitely starting to feel a growing sense of impatience for next season. There are just too many shows this Spring that could disappear and I probably wouldn't even notice. Those into slice of life, there are actually quite a few sweet titles out at the moment, … Continue reading Spring Overview Week 9

The Lost Village Episode 9

Review: Forget subtle or slow building of tension. The Lost Village his the accelerator last week and just kept going. Characters run around confronting each other and their various monsters and once again nothing is explained. Turns out Hayato is even crazier than I gave him credit for after the mob scene and it isn't … Continue reading The Lost Village Episode 9

The Lost Village Episode 8

Review: As we suspected, Masaki told us nothing. Well, she told us a sad tale about her cousin that was full of holes and the mob swayed to and fro about whether she was lying or telling the truth using increasingly flimsy arguments to sway each other. Then the bus driver swooped in to kidnap … Continue reading The Lost Village Episode 8

The Lost Village Episode 7

You probably don't need an overview this late in the season but if you do, you can read a brief overview on this earlier review. Review: An improvement on episode 6, this episode gets back into the group hysteria and quick back-and-forth dialogue. More is revealed of Mitsumune's past and we even get a vaguely … Continue reading The Lost Village Episode 7

Spring Overview

With 13 shows that I am actively watching (and a few others I'm kind of trying to catch bits and pieces of) I figure the end of the week is a good time to reflect on where each show is sitting. I Must Keep Watching In honesty, there isn't a lot happening this season that … Continue reading Spring Overview

The Lost Village – Episode 6

Overview: A group of random individuals take a bus tour hoping to start a new life in a village only things don't go as planned. Unable to leave the village and with mysterious events unfolding the characters are faced with more than they bargained for on this tour. Review: The humorous dialogue from previous episodes … Continue reading The Lost Village – Episode 6
