Afterlost Review Episode 8

Midnight Occult Civil Servants Review Episode 9

I Didn't See That Coming Midnight Occult Civil Servants Episode 9 After the light midnight stroll we had last week, this episode of Midnight Occult Civil Servants was a slap across the faces folded by a glass of freezing water tossed over our heads. And while there were certainly hints early in the episode that … Continue reading Midnight Occult Civil Servants Review Episode 9

Afterlost Review Episodes 6 + 7

Frustrating to say the least. Episode 6 In episode 6 Afterlost tries really hard to build a solid emotional climax with the older brother being one of the ghost things and being used by Souma before being ordered to kill his younger brother. Of course the power of love prevails, the artefact controlling him erased … Continue reading Afterlost Review Episodes 6 + 7

Midnight Occult Civil Servants Review Episode 8

A Supernatural Stroll Through Tokyo Episode 8 There was something pleasantly subdued about the episode this week. After the attempted rising tension last week that kind of fizzled, Midnight Occult Civil Servants could have pushed for an escalation but instead decided to focus on kind of what the title of the anime implies: the day … Continue reading Midnight Occult Civil Servants Review Episode 8

Episode 7 The conclusion to this two parter wasn’t a disappointment, but it didn’t really seem to do as much as it could. Midnight Occult Civil Servants builds up to a confrontation that ultimately … Continue reading Midnight Occult Civil Servants Review Episode 7

I'll admit, I get frustrated when a mystery takes too long to get going, doesn't give enough indication of … Continue reading Top 5 Mystery Anime

Afterlost Review Episodes 3 + 4

The conspiracy grows. Episode 3 This was a bit strange, which is a weird way to start a review about an anime that wiped out a whole city and has ghost like people and helicopters chasing motorbikes. And yet, Afterlost continues to be a bit of a perplexing story mostly because I’m still not entirely … Continue reading Afterlost Review Episodes 3 + 4

Afterlost Review Episodes 1 + 2

Explanations are for the weak. Episode 1 I’m honestly surprised I’ve seen so little chatter regarding Afterlost (Shoumetsu Toshi). Admittedly, things might go downhill after episode one but that first episode was pretty entertaining in its own way. Of course, a lot will depend on whether they will actually ever get around to explanations that … Continue reading Afterlost Review Episodes 1 + 2
