Captain Earth Series Review: Earth is Doomed and As Usual Only a Group of Teens (And Robots) Can Save Us

This is part of a series of re-posts of older reviews on 100 Word Anime. The original review came out in July 2016 and can be found¬†here. Another post that originally I did in a plus/minus format and I'm going to try and untangle that a bit. This is an interesting series in that it … Continue reading Captain Earth Series Review: Earth is Doomed and As Usual Only a Group of Teens (And Robots) Can Save Us

Space Battleship Tiramisu Zwei Episode 4: Velcro Wallets and Cockpit Stickers

Space Battleship Tiramisu Episode 4

Space Battleship Tiramisu Zwei continues the trend of focusing on the minutia for its humour with this week both Isuzu and Subaru getting called on fairly petty things by minor characters. 

Space Battleship Tiramisu Zwei Episode 3: Yakisoba and Co-op Heroes

Space Battleship Tiramisu Zwei Episode 3

Once again, Space Battleship Tiramisu proves itself baffling in the way it handles plot. It is almost as if it can't handle having a plot or a direction for too long and after an episode or even half an episode it literally jettisons whatever thought process was being followed to throw something random in before … Continue reading Space Battleship Tiramisu Zwei Episode 3: Yakisoba and Co-op Heroes

Space Battleship Tiramisu Zwei Episode 2: A New Durandel

Well it turns out that Subaru and Isuzu's father is as flaky as either one of his sons and most of the episode focuses on a reoccurring joke involving him getting caught up in email scams. It didn't exactly have a lot of staying power so while it was nice to see why both the … Continue reading Space Battleship Tiramisu Zwei Episode 2: A New Durandel

SSSS.Gridman Episode 1: So That Happened

SSSS.Gridman Episode 1

I know I've mentioned this before on my blog but I'll just say it again so that it is clear going into this review: I don't like Trigger very much. Visually I'm not a fan of Trigger works with the exception of Kiznaiver and a quick scroll through their titles on MAL reminded me of … Continue reading SSSS.Gridman Episode 1: So That Happened

Space Battleship Tiramisu Zwei Episode 1: Subaru and Isuzu are Still At It

Given I ended the season one review with a firm statement saying I was done with this show and not interested in a season two, it seems strange that as we go into the Autumn season that I was overcome with curiosity about what they were going to do in a second season. The final … Continue reading Space Battleship Tiramisu Zwei Episode 1: Subaru and Isuzu are Still At It

Space Battleship Tiramisu Series Review: A Glimmer Of Hope Lost In Space

With seven to nine minutes per episode, one thing the anime had in its favour was even when an episode didn't click for me, it was over fast. The other thing that worked with the short form was that if a joke was particularly distasteful, it was usually done by the next episode. There were only a couple of jokes that carried over between episodes.

Full Metal Panic Invisible Victory Episodes 11 + 12: Reunited

While these two episodes certainly do a better job of bringing the season to a resting point, this remains pretty much not concluded with no real indication of a follow up any time soon. After a couple of weeks off we finally get the last two episodes of this season and it is the big … Continue reading Full Metal Panic Invisible Victory Episodes 11 + 12: Reunited
