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
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
Is It Padding Or Set-Up? Time Will Tell. Episode 5 No bread. Okay, no bread yet. Still just crumbs and pieces of ideas that might come together.
