For a series that started with a splash, this one kind of meandered along. It was never terrible, but it certainly didn't use all its potential which is disappointing to say the least.
And Release the Spyce comes to an end. I guess this is nice and full circle but it really isn't overly thrilling.
Release the Spyce Episode 11 Review For all that this anime hasn't really gone as well as expected from its premise, I do have to compliment its sound design this week. That was actually a thing of beauty and the whole series has actually had remarkably good sound effects and a pretty awesome soundtrack. However … Continue reading Things Are Getting Spycy As Time Runs Out
Release the Spyce Episode 9 Review: Further proof that every scar comes with an angsty back story as Hanzo shares the story of her mentor with Momo. This week we get the final set up for what I guess will be the climactic confrontation.
Release the Spyce Episode 8 Review: The girls travel to Okinawa to infiltrate a facility guarded by snakes. Why did it have to be snakes? Throw in a viking girl and we're in for a fairly interesting episode even if not an overly sensible one.

This episode really does make it clear that despite … Continue reading Release the Spyce Episode 4: It’s All About Mei and Fu
I was really hoping for more than a work as part of a team and play your part kind of resolution to Momo’s troubles starting out as a spy. I mean, it makes logical sense that she needs to work as part of the team and follow her orders, but it just seems like in … Continue reading Release the Spyce Episode 3: It’s All About the Team
There are a few moments in this second episode that caused me to raise an eyebrow. The explanation that the word 'spy' might come from 'spice' which is complete and utter rubbish no matter how you look at it and the show throwing out there that it is just one theory doesn't make blatantly wrong … Continue reading Release the Spyce Episode 2: Preparation Is Key
Let's not even ask whether or not we're confusing herbs with spices as I'm sure there was some cross over at some point in this opening episode of Release the Spyce. Anyway, I didn't have much in the way of expectations going into this which is probably good considering it is fairly average in most … Continue reading Release the Spyce Episode 1: Is Eating the Spices The Same As Releasing The Spyce?
