March Comes in Like a Lion Episode 35: Here Comes The Sun

Review: This episode was adorable and emotionally stronger because even though Hina herself declares the situation over, she adds a 'probably' to the end of it. The scars of bullying remain and the fractures in the class don't magically disappear. The bullies also don't undergo some mystic transformation and see the errors of their way … Continue reading March Comes in Like a Lion Episode 35: Here Comes The Sun

Reflections on March

March has been a crazy, crazy month with both some very good things happening and some things I'd rather forget. As always, I'm going to look back on the month that was before thinking about what's coming in April. Firstly, the highlights for March which included both my 1000th post and my 1000th follower. I … Continue reading Reflections on March

Autumn 2016 Week 13

This is my last overview for Autumn. Though I don't think many of the Winter shows are starting straight up so not sure what next week will bring yet. Anyway, this is my final list and tomorrow I've got my reflection post with the best and worst for the year as well as the result … Continue reading Autumn 2016 Week 13

March Comes in Like a Lion Episode 11

Review: While this episode is beautiful (nothing like a fever to justify some truly fascinating visuals) given Rei is bedridden for most of it and the rest is taken up with the sisters enjoying New Year's there isn't really a lot going on this episode. Realistically, it kind of felt like a pause or the … Continue reading March Comes in Like a Lion Episode 11

March Comes in Like a Lion Episode 10

Review: This was a real return to the first two episodes where we are once again fully trapped in Rei's perspective and this episode showed me exactly why I fell in love at the start of the season. The use of music, ambient noise and silence is perfect in this episode as is the imagery. … Continue reading March Comes in Like a Lion Episode 10

March Comes In Like A Lion Episode 9

Review: While this episode was visually more impressive than episode 8 I liked it significantly less. Mostly this was because the old man, who was the focus for most of the episode, was just an annoying character. I didn't really care about his plight. Plus, it kind of made Kyouko's baiting at the end of … Continue reading March Comes In Like A Lion Episode 9

March Comes in Like a Lion Episode 6

Review: This week, March Comes in Like a Lion hits us hard with visual metaphors as Rei tries to work through some of his baggage, or at least tries to figure out what his problem is. I like that this show continues to treat anxiety and depression with a great deal of respect and acknowledges … Continue reading March Comes in Like a Lion Episode 6

March Comes in Like a Lion Episode 5

Review: March Comes in Like a Lion refocuses this week on Rei and we finally learn why he is a shogi player even though he doesn't seem to like playing much of the time. We already knew Rei had tragic back-story syndrome (a common ailment of anime protagonists) but now we get to see parts … Continue reading March Comes in Like a Lion Episode 5
