Steins;Gate 0 Episode 11: As If Things Are Finished

You would think Okabe would have learned by now that things are never done. There's always some angle or thread he's missed that will come back to bite him. Still, he feels things have come to an end bringing us to a resting point in the story. Things moved pretty quick this episode from finding … Continue reading Steins;Gate 0 Episode 11: As If Things Are Finished

Space Battleship Tiramisu Episode 12: Back to Jokes About Dirty Cockpits

When things go wrong for a series, it is sometimes good to return to your roots. Unfortunately, it doesn't work here given the story had pushed on a bit and now Subaru just getting OCD about dirt is kind of a weak consolation prize. Apparently we have one episode left to go which really isn't … Continue reading Space Battleship Tiramisu Episode 12: Back to Jokes About Dirty Cockpits

Caligula Episode 11: I Did It

Great, we finally figured it all out. Only thing is, there's nothing really to figure out. Any mumbo jumbo along the way existed only to make pretty basic story seem more than it was. Crazy girl from last week continues to crazy while other characters continue to lack consequence, but we're getting a big fight … Continue reading Caligula Episode 11: I Did It

Steins;Gate 0 Episode 10: And This Is Why Characters Should Speak

So, turns out Maho is having Kurisu's computer analysed. Why is that a problem? Oh, it will just start WW3. So why would she do that? Because Okabe doesn't tell anyone anything. Okabe's been keeping a lot of secrets for the sake of 'protecting' those around him. Or is it more that he's taken on … Continue reading Steins;Gate 0 Episode 10: And This Is Why Characters Should Speak

Caligula Episode 10: That Grenade Should Have Been Dropped About Ten Minutes Earlier

This story continues to think its kind of cool when mostly it is just boring us to death with poorly realised characters who engage in overly edgy dialogue that amounts to nothing. What to do when your cast is boring and your characters are going nowhere? Trap them in a room and have them discuss … Continue reading Caligula Episode 10: That Grenade Should Have Been Dropped About Ten Minutes Earlier

Space Battleship Tiramisu Episode 11: Another Flat Episode

Let's take a break from space fights to take a stab at reality TV and the returning of Subaru's space dog. Rather, let's not because the end result isn't great. It might be petty to point out that a parody set in space that has featured giant space-dogs, robots with an evil switch, and clones … Continue reading Space Battleship Tiramisu Episode 11: Another Flat Episode

Steins;Gate 0 Episode 9: Putting It Together

After returning to the former world-line, Okabe seems to have found some real motivation. Things are getting serious as the ongoing implications of jumping world-lines become more and more apparent. During this episode it occurred to me how heavily this particular story arc is leaning on Suzuha's character. She's the one with the clear knowledge … Continue reading Steins;Gate 0 Episode 9: Putting It Together

Space Battleship Tiramisu Episode 10: Another Mis-Fire

It has been at least half a season since the last episode of this comedy anime made me want to quit watching. However, that just makes this week's lacklustre effort all the more disappointing. This episode of Space Battleship Tiramisu just kind of didn't do anything. We have the clone Subaru and his brother coming … Continue reading Space Battleship Tiramisu Episode 10: Another Mis-Fire

Caligula Episode 9: Mystery Door, Locked Door

Suspicious memory retrieval from Aria leads the go Home club to look for a door that might lead home. Typically, it doesn't go well. Here's how not to write an episode. Start with a scene we have no context for based on where we left the characters. Throw in a line or two of exposition … Continue reading Caligula Episode 9: Mystery Door, Locked Door

Steins;Gate 0 Episode 8: Reliving The Tragedy

It has taken 8 episodes but I finally found myself emotionally invested in an episode of Steins;Gate 0. Whether this continues, I'm not sure, but this was by far the best episode this series has given us. It seems almost ironic that my favourite episode of Steins;Gate 0 so far is this one which actually … Continue reading Steins;Gate 0 Episode 8: Reliving The Tragedy
