Sagrada Reset Series Review: Why An Interesting Premise Isn’t Always Enough

Overview: Sakurada is a town where the majority of the people have power. One specific power each that can be used under specific conditions. Most of these powers are harmless and fairly useless individually, but this is still a point of concern for those watching over the city. Kei's power is that he doesn't forget … Continue reading Sagrada Reset Series Review: Why An Interesting Premise Isn’t Always Enough

Sagrada Reset Episode 24: Kei is Everyone’s Hero

Review: As this is a final episode review I'm not worried about spoilers so if you are concerned, please go back and read some of the reviews of earlier episodes. I know with absolute certainty that writing a full season review of this is going to be really hard. There are some things about this … Continue reading Sagrada Reset Episode 24: Kei is Everyone’s Hero

Summer 2017 Week 10

At this point I'm really feeling like I'm chasing my own tail around in circles for all that I'm very busy but don't seem to be accomplishing much. Hopefully that changes soon but in the meantime, this anime season is drawing to a close and with a few exceptions, I'm not even upset by that. … Continue reading Summer 2017 Week 10

Sagrada Reset Episode 23: When Going Back to the Beginning Works

Review: Sagrada Reset has been an odd watch and as watch the penultimate episode the show is truly demonstrating that if nothing else this was an incredibly well thought out project, even if that very calculated nature early on made the series a someone stilted viewing experience and one that wasn't particularly enjoyable in the … Continue reading Sagrada Reset Episode 23: When Going Back to the Beginning Works

Summer 2017 Week 9

A slightly less intense week which was definitely needed.

Sagrada Reset Episode 22: What’s Next, Kei?

Review: We're so close to the end now and I have to say, this show has becoming surprisingly great to watch in its final arc. I'm actually thinking this story would have worked much better as a binge because all that set up wouldn't have taken months, but hours and I'd probably have tolerated it … Continue reading Sagrada Reset Episode 22: What’s Next, Kei?

Sagrada Reset Episode 21: Decisions and Consequences

Review: There's a real sense of tension in this episode and it is a feeling that has been lacking from the majority of the season. Suddenly it feels very real that Kei might lose because for once resetting is not going to solve the problem and the witch has run out of tricks to help … Continue reading Sagrada Reset Episode 21: Decisions and Consequences

Sagrada Reset Episodes 19 + 20: An Interesting Development

Review Episode 19: Thinking about it, I would have to say that this was the best episode this show has so far delivered. What is kind of strange about that statement is that nothing that happens in this episode makes sense of is interesting if you haven't sat through at least 17 of the previous … Continue reading Sagrada Reset Episodes 19 + 20: An Interesting Development

Sagrada Reset Episodes 17 + 18: Too Late To Save It But Things Are Finally Moving

Review Episode 17: It is a shame it has taken 17 episodes to get to this point where finally the audience is given some insight into how such a town came to be and what its purpose might have been. Though, outside of that, the story continues as Kei tries to correct everything he sees … Continue reading Sagrada Reset Episodes 17 + 18: Too Late To Save It But Things Are Finally Moving
