Tales of Zestiria the X Season 2 Episode 11

Review (spoilers, no attempt to not reveal information): Possibly the whole Dezel sacrificing himself to blow away the dragons so that Sorey isn't forced to either attempt mass purification (which cannot end well) or to accept that maybe shooting them is the only option could have been dramatic and moving. Certainly his farewell to Rose … Continue reading Tales of Zestiria the X Season 2 Episode 11

Tales of Zestiria the X Season 2 Episode 10

Review: Remembering way back when I started season 1 of this, one of me key issues was that the characters didn't feel like they were part of the world. The world was pretty and the characters were pretty, but the two didn't match. As time went on, this kind of got less noticeable (either because … Continue reading Tales of Zestiria the X Season 2 Episode 10

Tales of Zestiria the X Season 2 Episode 9

Review: After kind of just aimlessly wandering and tying up loose ends for 8 episodes, we now just randomly have henchmen girl (I don't know her name, maybe we're told at some point but that one flew right by me) just exposition and info-dump us into the set up for a final battle. The Lord … Continue reading Tales of Zestiria the X Season 2 Episode 9

Tales of Zestiria the X Season 2 Episode 8

Review: Tales of Zestiria finally got down to business and brought all the main characters together in one place, faced an actual enemy, moved forward the political intrigue and finally actually let Alisha progress and not have the constant threat of a weak king and an overbearing would-be king in her way. In fact, so … Continue reading Tales of Zestiria the X Season 2 Episode 8

Tales of Zestiria the X Season 2 Episode 6

Review: Apparently one episode of moping is all Rose needs before making critical and life-changing decisions (though in terms of not being bored by the narrative her moving on was probably a good thing). This episode feels like it is getting ready to move this story along. We finally reached the source of the rain … Continue reading Tales of Zestiria the X Season 2 Episode 6

Tales of Zestiria the X Season 2 Episode 5

Review: After all the build up this episode seems like mostly a nothing kind of deal. Rose may or may not have killed her target and now they are getting back to where-ever it was Sorey was supposed to be going to deal with the rain. Meanwhile, Rose decided it was a good time for … Continue reading Tales of Zestiria the X Season 2 Episode 5

Tales of Zestiria The X Season 2 Episode 4

Review: It's interesting that Tales of Zestiria is devoting so much time to Rose over the last few episodes. Mostly because of all the characters we've met and followed along, Rose is one of the few who is actually reasonably complex. She isn't good for the sake of being a good guy, nor is she … Continue reading Tales of Zestiria The X Season 2 Episode 4

Tales of Zestiria the X Season 2 Episode 2

Review: I really like Rose as a character. Her few appearances in season 1 weren't really enough to get much of a feel for her so it has been nice to spend so much time with her now. She's not a particularly unique character but she is entertaining and I love how she can switch … Continue reading Tales of Zestiria the X Season 2 Episode 2

Tales of Zestiria the X Season 2 Episode 1

Overview: A direct continuation from season 1, the story picks up with Sorey and his companions accompanying Rose. Review: This episode definitely assumes you watched season 1 and that you remember where things left off because we're dropped right into the story with no introduction, no recap, and no artificial bits of dialogue where they … Continue reading Tales of Zestiria the X Season 2 Episode 1
