After watching the first three episodes I was pretty keen to watch more of Kemono Jihen. While it didn't fully live up to expectations, this one ended up being a bit interesting. Read the full review.
For those who aren't familiar with it, Ghost Hunt is an anime series from 2006 that essentially goes through a number of story arcs about a team of paranormal researchers. While some stories are better than others, the whole series is actually pretty entertaining. What follows are my thoughts on each story arc after rewatching the series.
We're back to sit and wait as Moriarty spends the entire episode on a couch while every other character plays out the plot. This series has definitely lost its shine.
A fun little chase sequence and a plan that shouldn't work but is fun to watch breathes some life into this season of Moriarty. Will it hold onto this energy going into the next episode?
Well it was kind of inevitable we'd get a Jack the Ripper story in this series eventually. I wonder how they'll resolve it here?
The arc involving Irene and her stolen papers concludes with some great moments, some interesting choices, and one moment which just had me wondering 'why?'. Here are my thoughts on episode 14 of Moriarty the Patriot.
The story of Irene continues and this episode has far more focus on Albert Moriarty. Things are definitely shaping up in this story and I'm curious as to where we're going with it all.
Urasekai Picnic is one of those anime that you are either going to really enjoy or find incredibly frustrating and ultimately you won't be wrong. Check out my full review of Winter 2021's Otherside Picnic anime.
While nothing in this second season will change my opinion that season one of The Promised Neverland was an excellent, well crafted narrative that hit just the right emotional notes, there's no avoiding the fact that season 2 is pretty much everything season 1 wasn't and the end result is a less than satisfying mess. Be sure to read the full review and I'd love to know your thoughts on the series so leave me a comment. I will however warn there are spoilers for the final episode in this review which I would normally avoid but in this case I kind of feel I should spare people from having to watch this themselves so it is kind of needed.
We're back in Victorian London, a setting that anime has well and truly visited before, and once again taking on Sherlock's story though this time we're finding out about William James Moriarty. It is an interesting take on the character though I'm not entirely sure they've nailed the execution here.
