Caligula Episodes 5 + 6: Six Episodes For An Origin Story

I'm totally confused as to whether there is any thought put into this at all as stuff seems to just happen. At this point there's no real rhyme or reason to any of the events or fights and basically the story seems like it has been written by random lottery. Could it improve though? About … Continue reading Caligula Episodes 5 + 6: Six Episodes For An Origin Story

Lostorage Conflated Wixoss Episode 7: It’s Going To Be Fun When These Groups Converge

Season 1 and 2 veterans continue their fight against Layla while season 3 veterans plus Kiyoi continue to try to figure out the nature of the new game this week in Lostorage Conflated Wixoss. I'm really looking forward to these two groups meeting. The game continues with more and more evidence that it isn't so … Continue reading Lostorage Conflated Wixoss Episode 7: It’s Going To Be Fun When These Groups Converge

Record of Grancrest War Episode 19: Alexis the Artist

I wondered what Alexis would be like in a fight. Turns out, he doesn't so much fight as conduct battles and the result is illogical but pretty (if a bit gruesome). Theo has vanished again without a single appearance in this week's episode of Record of Grancrest War. Siluca barely gets a showing at the … Continue reading Record of Grancrest War Episode 19: Alexis the Artist

Full Metal Panic Invisible Victory Episode 5: Restart

We could kind of view the first four episodes as the cliff-hanger ending to a previous season given how this episode makes it feel like the anime is starting over. However the absence of Kanami is keenly felt in this fifth episode. This episode very much reminds me of the very early Full Metal Panic … Continue reading Full Metal Panic Invisible Victory Episode 5: Restart

Doreiku The Animation Episode 6: The Dog’s Perspective

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

Tada Doesn’t Fall in Love Episode 7: Capturing the Human Element

This week Tada manages to nail two character moments beautifully once again helping this anime remain feeling like it is just that little bit better than it should be. While the little sister's crush on Yamashita seems to have come out of nowhere (unless I've just utterly and completely missed it in previous episodes), that … Continue reading Tada Doesn’t Fall in Love Episode 7: Capturing the Human Element

Steins;Gate 0 Episode 6: And Round and Round We Go

We're still relying on echoes of sentiment created by a parallel narrative to make us interested in this one, and this week my brain decided it just wasn't invested at all. By the time we get to yet another cliff-hanger ending in the episode this week, I'd more or less switched off. Last week I … Continue reading Steins;Gate 0 Episode 6: And Round and Round We Go

Rokuhoudou Yotsuiro Biyori Episode 6: The Start of Sui’s Rokyhoudou

While the boys clean the shop, the narrative takes us back to when Sui still worked in an office and dreamed of reopening his grandfather's restaurant. This anime is taking its time but it seems to be getting somewhere. It wasn't much of an episode really in terms of plot and even the character reveals … Continue reading Rokuhoudou Yotsuiro Biyori Episode 6: The Start of Sui’s Rokyhoudou

Space Battleship Tiramisu Episode 7: Brothers Reunite

This episode had a serious issue with balancing the drama of the two reuniting and the comedic tone of the series. The end result wasn't exactly satisfying. I get six minutes isn't a long episode run time, even by anime standards, and in a show like this where they need to pack a number of … Continue reading Space Battleship Tiramisu Episode 7: Brothers Reunite
