Friday’s Feature: Avoiding the Paradoxes of Time Travel or Plunging Headlong Into Them with Sagrada Reset

This post was written after watching the first three episodes of Sagrada Reset and while it discusses those episodes everything in this feature will be pure speculation and opinion. Keep in mind this post is not trying to tell you that Sagrada is an amazing, must watch anime given there are a lot of issues … Continue reading Friday’s Feature: Avoiding the Paradoxes of Time Travel or Plunging Headlong Into Them with Sagrada Reset

Orange Series Review

Overview: Ten years ago Kakeru committed suicide. Now his friends, feeling regret, send letters to their past selves in an effort to save him. I reviewed this week to week so if you are interested in my thoughts on individual episodes click here. Review: For those following week to week, it is no surprise that … Continue reading Orange Series Review

Summer 2016 Week 13

This is my last overview for Summer 2016. I know some shows still haven't finished but next week I'll be posting my first thoughts on the Autumn season shows as they start rolling out (though from the looks of Crunchyroll and AnimeLab I may be a little short of shows this season - I say … Continue reading Summer 2016 Week 13

Orange Episode 13

Review: I'm definitely feeling conflicted about whether I liked the way this ended. The extended episode was nice because it meant we didn't get an abrupt pace shift in this final episode. The story has progressed slowly and steadily and the extra time allowed them to tell this final part the same way. I still … Continue reading Orange Episode 13

Orange Episode 12

Review: Okay, that's seriously going to be their explanation for how the letters got back to the past? Right... That was even worse than getting no explanation. However, it does fit the overall tone of the show. Completely irrational. Five different sets of instructions (that clearly weren't written in consultation given different bits of information … Continue reading Orange Episode 12

Summer 2016 Week 11

Week 11 and it is the home stretch. After last week's rather ho-hum performance from so many shows, it seems like some of them were just saving up for this week. Other shows are taking the interesting approach (though one that is common in the anime world) of continuing to derail as the end draws … Continue reading Summer 2016 Week 11

Orange Episode 11

Review: Suwa is taking an awful lot on faith that the science teacher was right in his theory on parallel worlds. And even if Suwa in the other timeline has regrets, why should current Suwa be forced to bear the consequences? I was super relieved when this happened. Good job. Now just do the same … Continue reading Orange Episode 11

Summer 2016 Week 10

Are you excited for the end of the season? So I know Days is continuing on, haven't heard about the others but most things should start wrapping up soon. Let's see what they can deliver in their final episodes. Meanwhile, most of the shows I've been enjoying throughout this season delivered okay but not awesome … Continue reading Summer 2016 Week 10

Orange Episode 10

Review: This episode needs to come with a warning about the sheer amount of cheesy scenes they are about to throw at you. We're still at the athletics competition and we finish with the long awaited relay. Ignoring the over the top words of encouragement the friends are throwing around (which should be making Kakeru … Continue reading Orange Episode 10

Orange Episode 9

Review: While this episode is an improvement on last week the show is very much stretching things out as far as they can go. Kakeru and Naho still aren't 'dating', just walking home together, giving each other significant looks and becoming unreasonably jealous when other people interact with the other. Naho's friends are completely 'supporting' … Continue reading Orange Episode 9
