Review: For a final episode of a slice of life/post-apocalyptic anime this episode this episode of Girls' Last Tour hits all the right notes.

Review: While the whole time we've traveled with Chito and Yuuri we've been given hints about the society that was once upon a time, this episode is the most blatant yet at suggesting that the old society literally self-destructed through war and weapons.

I also like … Continue reading Girls’ Last Tour Episode 8: What Is Left Behind?
Review: It is always a bit of a risk having such a small cast but Girls' Last Tour has managed to craft two characters that despite their moe like appearances really give the audience plenty to like and to relate to throughout their travels. Their contrasting views on a number of things lend themselves to … Continue reading Girls’ Last Tour Episode 7: Two Types of People
With Halloween just passing I really wanted to think of the perfect series to review this week that would fit the theme that I hadn't already reviewed.

I'd just started watching anime as an … Continue reading Gilgamesh Series Review: When You Want Something Creepy and Unsettling
