Alderamin on the Sky is a military fantasy anime that mostly works. The lack of ending is a bit of a problem as is the overall pacing, but if you like Ikta's approach to life you'll have a lot of fun along the way. Here are my episodic thoughts.
What greater horror than realising an anime that initially promises potential will not fulfil any of it? Here is Afterlost, a champion at broken promises and fairly dull story-telling.
Definitely no bread crumbs at the end of the bread crumb trail. Shoumetsu Toshi Episode 12 Okay, they never really had a clue what caused any of this or what was actually going on. It all came down to will power, friendship, and an individual choice with no context given as to why any of … Continue reading Afterlost Review Episode 12

Frustrating to say the least. Episode 6 In episode 6 Afterlost tries really hard to build a solid emotional climax with the older brother being one of the ghost things and being used by Souma before being ordered to kill his younger brother. Of course the power of love prevails, the artefact controlling him erased … Continue reading Afterlost Review Episodes 6 + 7

I don't necessarily disagree but at the same time I'm actually having fun with the season even if a lot of what … Continue reading Is The New Season of One Punch Man Disappointing?
Is It Padding Or Set-Up? Time Will Tell. Episode 5 No bread. Okay, no bread yet. Still just crumbs and pieces of ideas that might come together.
