When I first read the synopsis of Night Head 2041 I wondered why it sounded kind of familiar. Turns out there was an anime from 2006, Night Head Genesis, that I may have watched some or all of at some point. Clearly it left an impression given I barely remembered it. Anyway, how are the first three episodes of this 2021 anime, Night Head 2041?
With season one of Moriarty the Patriot being a surprising mix of solid narrative arcs and somewhat less thrilling ones, I entered season two hoping for more of the same and perhaps a building on the overall thrill. Unfortunately like many sequels in 2021, Moriarty the Patriot Season 2 ended up feeling somewhat lacking. Be sure to read the full review.
Airing in the FALL 2016 anime season, Lostorage Incited WIXOSS gave us a new and exciting instalment in the WIXOSS franchise. Girls playing a card game with deadly consequences - what could go wrong?
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 Moriarty the Patriot 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.
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 The Promised Neverland 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.
