DamePri Anime Caravan Episode 1: This Was Really Silly And Yet Kind Of Okay

Overview: Okay, I read the synopsis of this on MAL and on HiDive and to be honest, I still don't know what the show is actually going to be about given both of those descriptions seem to describe the events of episode 1. So maybe we're just going to be repeating this for a season? … Continue reading DamePri Anime Caravan Episode 1: This Was Really Silly And Yet Kind Of Okay

Princess Principal Episode 11: Another Fine Mess

Review: This episode was everything you could have wanted from Princess Principal after the bombshell ending to episode 10. Ange stayed true to who she has been and attempted to throw off pursuers and then run-away with the Princess. Princess however also stayed true to who she had become and pretty much told Ange she … Continue reading Princess Principal Episode 11: Another Fine Mess

Princess Principal Episode 9: East Meets West

Review: We kind of knew it had to come along, an episode that focusses on the fact that Chise is actually Japanese and that there are different cultural expectations. Fortunately, this episode elicits more laughs than groans and actually manages to make for some great character moments even while it plays on some fairly obvious … Continue reading Princess Principal Episode 9: East Meets West

Princess Principal Episode 8: The Truth of the Black Lizard Planet

Review (with potential spoiler): This episode is excellent in that it finally clears up a lot of the viewer's suspicions about what happened between Ange and Charlotte once upon a time and it does it well. It is an expected reveal but one that is dealt with appropriately. What it isn't particularly good at is … Continue reading Princess Principal Episode 8: The Truth of the Black Lizard Planet

Princess Principal Episode 7: Spying Is Sometimes A Dirty Job

Review: I didn't find this episode quite as interesting as some of the previous ones, mostly because this week nothing really came as a surprise. Previously, there's been something that unfolded in a way I didn't quite expect, but this episode was more or less strictly by the numbers as they set up and delivered … Continue reading Princess Principal Episode 7: Spying Is Sometimes A Dirty Job

Princess Principal Episodes 5 + 6: Always A Train Story

Review Episode 5: I get that trains were really important as a mode of transport way back when, but I find train episodes relatively boring for the simple reason that there are only so many things you can do in a train episode. Basically you have linear paths because the carriages are strung out behind … Continue reading Princess Principal Episodes 5 + 6: Always A Train Story

Alderamin on the Sky Series Review

Overview: Alderamin on the Sky follows Ikta Solork, a fairly lazy and apathetic young man, who unfortunately finds himself forced into joining his country's military along with his childhood friend. I reviewed this series week to week so if you are after individual episode thoughts click here. Review: For those who followed my episode to … Continue reading Alderamin on the Sky Series Review

Taboo Tattoo Series Review

Overview: Seigi is an ordinary teenage boy in Japan (who is of course trained in martial arts) who is given a tattoo that has some mystic powers and then gets caught up in a battle between nations that may or may not have world ending consequences. Review: If you followed my week to week posts … Continue reading Taboo Tattoo Series Review

Izetta: The Last Witch Episode 3

Review: This continues to be adorable even as it is set amongst a fictional version of a fairly dark moment in modern history. While at the moment it is all magic beating the military and smiles and celebrations it kind of feels like this is going to get a bit darker because sooner or later … Continue reading Izetta: The Last Witch Episode 3

Izetta: The Last Witch Episode 2

Review: Okay, the flashback this episode (one of them at least) really confirmed that there's a strong chance that 'last' is more hyperbole than actual fact so it will be interesting to see if another witch does turn up in the course of this series. Otherwise, Izetta is doing some great chase sequences. Last week … Continue reading Izetta: The Last Witch Episode 2
