When Tada Doesn't Fall in Love gave us an episode narrated by Nyanko Big, it fit the tone and style of the show and was just kind of amusing. When this anime puts words in the mouth of a dog the end result is pretty lame. With the first half of this episode a retelling … Continue reading Doreiku The Animation Episode 6: The Dog’s Perspective
Are we supposed to like Eia now because she realised its stupid to play a game that enslaves people? This anime continues to astound with its ongoing lack of logical thought by the characters. Finally, Eia has realised that Ohta is kind of crazy and never really had any intention of letting slaves go. Though … Continue reading Doreiku The Animation Episode 5: Too Late, Eia.
Further random developments and while this anime is definitely a fun train wreck in the making, it isn't a great story. With poor visuals and fairly weak characterisation, unless you just happen to like watching things fall apart in slow motion there's not a lot going on here. The dog wearing an SCM was a … Continue reading Doreiku The Animation Episode 4: Credibility Gone
You know how you can suspend disbelief for an out-there premise as long as what follows on is logical? Well Doreiku is kind of pushing the limits of what my rational mind will allow to disregard for the sake of narrative. How did you find this episode? This week our main pair of player kind … Continue reading Doreiku The Animation Episode 3: Credibility Falling
Guy tries to make a girl a slave but she turns the tables on him. Then they both take on another pair. These people are kind of dumb. Your thoughts? When losing a game means becoming a slave, you think these characters would be more careful with the choice of game, the rules established, and … Continue reading Doreiku The Animation Episode 2: Fun and Games
Alright, it is an anime about a device that allows people to turn other people into slaves so expect that things are going to get reasonably dark, but otherwise, how was this first episode? After the first episode to Magical Girl Site, I was a little bit wary starting this one, given the premise of … Continue reading Doreiku The Animation First Impressions
Overview: With the introduction of the Sibyl System Japan finds itself at peace as those who would put the system at risk or might be a danger to others are identified by examining their mental state and passing judgement. Akane has newly been appointed as an inspector and now has the job of supervising enforcers … Continue reading Psycho Pass Series Review: No System Is Perfect But This Anime Is Pretty Fantastic
Review: As much as I like the concept of this show, there is one glaring issue that we keep coming back to. It isn't that there are too many characters to really care about any of them or that their interactions are decidedly stupid. Anyone who watches a lot of horror will note these things … Continue reading King’s Game Episode 5: Can We Start Over With New Writers?
Review: This show is not good. It didn't start well, but at least had an interesting kind of premise even if the execution was questionable, but at episode 3 I just have to admit that this is going to be kind of terrible. I also have to admit I kind of need to know how … Continue reading Evil or Live Episode 3: I Didn’t Think It Was Possible, But It Is Getting Worse
Review: This week we move away from the instructors and their deliberate acts of cruelty (though they do get one fairly ominous looking scene) and instead we focus on the cruelty that people can inflict upon one another once they start forming packs and seem to have absolutely zero empathy. It wouldn't be so hard … Continue reading Evil or Live Episode 2: Could There Be One Nice Character In This Story?
