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

Spiritpact – Bond of the Underworld Episode 12: A True Pact

Why did this have to end? Are we going to get a third season? There is one major advantage of this show running at a slightly different time to Japanese seasonal anime. The season final occurred when most other anime are in a mid-season slump or still getting their momentum, so a final right now … Continue reading Spiritpact – Bond of the Underworld Episode 12: A True Pact

Tada Doesn’t Fall in Love Episode 6: No Surprises But Still Cute

If you were looking for something novel, this anime would be unimpressive, but that doesn't mean it isn't super sweet to watch.

Spiritpact – Bond of the Underworld Episode 11: Confrontation

Time for final revelations and the show-down. Things are coming to a fairly exciting conclusion. On the one hand, I kind of get where Shouken's brother is coming from. The Tanmoku family did keep his brother's body and bind his soul and really that's kind of wrong and distasteful. On the other hand, Shouken was … Continue reading Spiritpact – Bond of the Underworld Episode 11: Confrontation

Tada Doesn’t Fall in Love Episode 5: This Seems Anti-Climatic

So the anime shows us Tada's parents leaving before the accident and reveals Teresa's identity (is anyone shocked) and yet neither of these reveals feels like it has much weight. While this story continues to be pleasant, it really isn't all that memorable. Your thoughts? Another school free episode and this time the focus switches … Continue reading Tada Doesn’t Fall in Love Episode 5: This Seems Anti-Climatic

Tada Doesn’t Fall in Love Episode 4: It’s The Clark Kent Disguise

Another enjoyable episode even as nothing much of consequence occurs. This anime is managing feel good well enough and is novel enough to keep me wanting just a bit more without actually being all that memorable. How are you finding Tada Doesn't Fall in Love? I'd kind of suspected the link between the Class Rep … Continue reading Tada Doesn’t Fall in Love Episode 4: It’s The Clark Kent Disguise

Spiritpact – Bond of the Underworld Episode 10: Clarity

Finishing Shouken's memory walk and it seems things are about to get very intense in the present. This show continues to get better and better. I really appreciate that this anime managed to show us Tanmoku's past from his perspective with Keika looking in, and then showed us nearly the same sequence from Shouken's perspective … Continue reading Spiritpact – Bond of the Underworld Episode 10: Clarity

Spiritpact – Bond of the Underworld Episode 9: Shouken’s Reasons

Another flashback episode for this anime, this time showing us Shouken's perspective on past events. This whole second season, the shadow of Shouken has been looming over everything. Three episodes we followed Keika as he wandered through Tanmoku's memories of his former bodyguard and now, at last, we've found Shouken himself and entered his memories. … Continue reading Spiritpact – Bond of the Underworld Episode 9: Shouken’s Reasons
