With Battle Game in 5 Seconds coming to a close and Platinum End about to kick off yet more characters facing off against one another it felt like an appropriate time to look at my favourite survival anime. While not all of these are death game, battle royale style anime, they all involve characters fighting for survival. I'd love to know your favourite survival anime so be sure to leave me a comment.
It is seriously hard to find a good horror anime and that isn't surprising given how few are released in general (when compared with the plethora of isekai stories or cute girls doing whatever anime). But it does make it hard to do a Halloween anime list each year when very little has changed. So … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Horror Anime Released in the Last 5 Years
Last week I looked at my favourite male characters with pink hair and realised, tragically, there just aren't that many that I've remembered. Totally opposite problem this week when I tried to narrow down my list of lovely anime ladies with pink hair. Ultimately I went with characters who I felt were striking in appearance … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Female Anime Characters With Pink Hair
There will be some spoilers for School-Live and Shaun of the Dead in this post. While my initial thoughts on this post were sparked by watching School-Live, I will admit, the question of zombies has been one that has been rattling around my brain for awhile. Not that that's surprising given the prolific nature of … Continue reading Friday’s Feature: From Horror Creature to Character – The Question of Zombies
Overview - Spoilers if you haven't seen the show: The School Live club are a club that live at school. They sleep there, they eat there, they attend classes there, and they check the barricades to make sure they are alone there. Yes, this is another zombie story however School-Live decides to combine the cute … Continue reading School-Live Series Review: Does a Zombie/Cute-Girl Mash Up Actually Work?
Review - Some spoilers: There's a lot I want to say but most of it relates to the overall series and I'll save that for my series review of this. On these three episodes I did have some disappointments, but episode 10 did have a massive shift from the slice-of-life cuteness of episode 9 and … Continue reading School-Live Episodes 10 – 12
Review: After such an incredibly strong and interesting first half, I guess it was inevitable that something would falter and these three episodes kind of bring a lull. It isn't that things aren't happening here but the focus after the reveal has definitely been on the cute girl aspect of this show. Cute girls writing … Continue reading School-Live Episodes 7 – 9
Review: Okay, I didn't actually stop between these episodes and I think it is going to get harder for me to stop because I'm really enjoying this story, hence the lack of images to populate the post. These two episodes conclude the story of how Miki joined the School Living club and how they revealed … Continue reading School-Live Epiosdes 5 + 6
Review: Any doubt I had about the teacher is gone as this episode makes it clear she is entirely in Yuki's head. Otherwise there's no way she would have given permission for an outing and certainly no way she'd hand her car keys to a student. The fact that Yuki is the one handing over … Continue reading School-Live Episode 4
Review: After my question last episode of whether Megu-nee was actually real of just another of Yuki's delusions, this episode begins from the overly friendly, super pink haired teacher's perspective but we've gone to the beginning of the zombie outbreak. If anything, this episode is designed to bring about ambiguity as to Megu-nee's existence. She … Continue reading School-Live Episode 3
