Scientific inventions, hard work, and Christmas lights come together in this pair of episode as Ishigami Village continues to rush technological advancement in order to prepare for the coming conflict. As usual, the cast carry the show and there's plenty to enjoy in this pair of episodes.
Following on from Null's emotional efforts to save Peta in episode 5, episodes 6 + 7 raise some serious questions about the nature of the Null's world while also giving us some fun beach moments and then some trouble at the dreaded school. Fairly impressive effort given how short these episodes are.
We're back to frantic inventing and creating as Senku is working to prepare for the attack he has decided will occur once winter is over. Have to love that the first step to mobile phones involves making Fairy Floss (Cotton Candy).

While I was worried the return of Tsukasa would mark a downturn in my enjoyment, episode 18 of Dr Stone was a surprisingly fun and entertaining affair. There is lots to enjoy as the characters react to an attack and then make their preparations.

Also, when I still thought Phantasy Star Online 2 … Continue reading Phantasy Star Online 2: Episode Oracle Episode 1 Review
Null & Peta continues to be curiously entertaining even as the run-time doesn't really allow for much in the way of depth. Still, another perfectly pleasant episode and this one ending with what might be a cliffhanger, unless everything resets next week.
This week it is all about taking risks and betting on a chance of survival. As Byakuya's story comes to an end we see the gift he left for Senku.
Maybe under all the silliness this is actually the story about a lonely girl who has an imaginary friend who happens to be a robot with the personality of her dead sister? Anyway...
