Endro Episode 5 Review - This week we introduce a Princess but where many an anime might now roll out someone extremely annoying, Endro takes the standard tropes and delivers something fairly interesting with them. I have to admit I really quite enjoyed this episode.
Grimms Notes Episode 4: They kind of need to explain motives soon because this episode did a good job of making me want to back the villains. Still, at least we got Ex's backstory so he feels a little more real in a fairly artificial setting.
Endro! Episode 2 Review - And the girls continue to train as adventurers while the demon lord continues to plot against them. Riveting, really.
Well, we've definitely seen our share of dark magical girl stories, yet I can't help feeling optimistic about this one. Will my hopes be dashed? Maybe, but I'm still wanting to see how this one goes.
Xuan Yuan Sword Luminary Episode 11 Review: The Empress has lost it, Ning's lost it, Zhao's losing it, and Yin isn't fairing much better. Yeah, I think this one is heading for a complete tragedy because I can't imagine any of these characters getting a happily ever after at this point.
A Certain Magical Index Season 3 Episode 10: There's genuinely no effort to make this make sense any more. It almost feels like we're just transitioning from set piece to set piece because something has to happen next and there's little thought or effort put into it. Needless to say, this one is still on track to get dropped at the end of the Autumn anime season.
A Certain Magical Index Season 3 Episode 9 Review: I suppose I shouldn't expect anything more from this particular franchise at this point. The weakest elements of its writing remain in tact while the fun and excitement that managed to keep it floating in earlier seasons has all but vanished. Touma's Imagine Breaker is probably more powerful than he realises.
