Full Metal Panic Invisible Victory Episode 9: Perfect Timing

Space Battleship Tiramisu Episode 12: Back to Jokes About Dirty Cockpits

When things go wrong for a series, it is sometimes good to return to your roots. Unfortunately, it doesn't work here given the story had pushed on a bit and now Subaru just getting OCD about dirt is kind of a weak consolation prize. Apparently we have one episode left to go which really isn't … Continue reading Space Battleship Tiramisu Episode 12: Back to Jokes About Dirty Cockpits

Space Battleship Tiramisu Episode 11: Another Flat Episode

Let's take a break from space fights to take a stab at reality TV and the returning of Subaru's space dog. Rather, let's not because the end result isn't great.

In one episode so much was packed in. This returning anime has definitely continued to impress as Invisible Victory marches on. It is rare that an episode can pack so much in and yet not feel like it is rushing a mile a minute or mashing things together that just don't fit. We continue directly … Continue reading Full Metal Panic Invisible Victory Episode 7: There’s Something Really Satisfying About Watching Sousuke Pull A Helicopter Out of the Sky

Space Battleship Tiramisu Episode 9: Happiness and Tragedy

Fortunately the robot has proven a brief distraction and we seem to be continuing with what counts for a plot in this anime. And for the brief run-time its proving surprisingly interesting. The robot situation was actually dealt with surprisingly quickly and I was quite satisfied with the outcome. Okay, the whole having a personality … Continue reading Space Battleship Tiramisu Episode 9: Happiness and Tragedy
