Knight’s & Magic Episode 13: Some People Are Just Sore Losers

Review: Well, this ended pretty much the way everyone predicted and managed to be pretty pointless right to the end. Ernesti fights the drake and shows off a few new tricks (though I'm not certain splattering it with oil and setting it on fire counts as a new trick). We then get the engineer from … Continue reading Knight’s & Magic Episode 13: Some People Are Just Sore Losers

Knight’s & Magic Episodes 7 + 8: More Like a Development Timeline Than A Story

Review Episode 7: Let me preface my review of this episode by pointing out that there is something infections about Ernesti's raw enthusiasm. Not just within the show as other characters are drawn into his desire to create and build, but the audience also become a part of wanting to see what will happen and … Continue reading Knight’s & Magic Episodes 7 + 8: More Like a Development Timeline Than A Story

Knight’s & Magic Episodes 2 + 3: Well, He’s Remarkably Self-Assured

Review Episode 2: I'll start out by saying I enjoyed episode 2 but that title with the unnecessary apostrophe is really starting to bug. Much like the excessive number of exclamation marks in some titles. So, let's actually review the episode and to be honest this was pretty fun. Okay, it is an extended fighting … Continue reading Knight’s & Magic Episodes 2 + 3: Well, He’s Remarkably Self-Assured

Iron Blooded Orpahns Episode 46

Review: Shino's death hits hard (you know, unlike the other half the cast that already died, we actually cared about Shino) and after the dust of the battle settles (or, rather Tekkadan and co scurry away to potential safety) we get the regret, the lamentation and the half-hearted I'm glad you didn't die speeches. Yamagi … Continue reading Iron Blooded Orpahns Episode 46

Flip Flappers Episode 8

Review: Flip Flappers this week takes us to a futuristic city full of lights, giant birds, robot battles and a very short man who apparently created the city.Visually it is stunning as usual but from a story point of view all we see is Yayaka moving further away from her core purpose because of her … Continue reading Flip Flappers Episode 8

Flip Flappers Episodes 1 + 2

Overview: Cocona is a bright girl who is uncertain about her future, however, while wondering which path to take she encounters Papika. Review Episode 1: Okay, having watched the whole of episode 1, I'm still kind of clueless about who anyone is or what they want or where we are going with this story (or … Continue reading Flip Flappers Episodes 1 + 2

Trickster Episode 1

Overview: We have a detective agency and some boy who can't die. Review: I'm going to be honest that this is probably the most interesting first episode so far (though there are still a number of shows to come out). That said, I'm not holding out a lot of hope that this one is going … Continue reading Trickster Episode 1
