Space Battleship Tiramisu Zwei continues the trend of focusing on the minutia for its humour with this week both Isuzu and Subaru getting called on fairly petty things by minor characters.
Right from episode one of Steins;Gate 0 I kind of sat on the fence about whether or not I was on board with this most recent addition to the Steins;Gate anime world. Overall it was an up and down experience but now we come to the final review and I have to figure out exactly how I feel about this show.
I kind of decided early in this episode I really don't like Nana as a character. Despite her turning point this episode she just really rubbed me the wrong way early on in this episode and her inconsistencies and incredibly silly decision making just made me hope that somehow she'd be left behind in the … Continue reading The Girl in Twilight Episode 3: She’ll Never Become Chocolate Banana?
Once again, Space Battleship Tiramisu proves itself baffling in the way it handles plot. It is almost as if it can't handle having a plot or a direction for too long and after an episode or even half an episode it literally jettisons whatever thought process was being followed to throw something random in before … Continue reading Space Battleship Tiramisu Zwei Episode 3: Yakisoba and Co-op Heroes
The first episode of this set up an interesting enough premise and a cast of characters which might eventually develop into an interesting group. However, episode 2 of The Girl in Twilight doesn't seem particularly interested in doing that as we plunge straight into another parallel world in a jump that seems to contradict the … Continue reading The Girl in Twilight Episode 2: Parallel Worlds And Arranged Marriages
Well it turns out that Subaru and Isuzu's father is as flaky as either one of his sons and most of the episode focuses on a reoccurring joke involving him getting caught up in email scams. It didn't exactly have a lot of staying power so while it was nice to see why both the … Continue reading Space Battleship Tiramisu Zwei Episode 2: A New Durandel
I know I've mentioned this before on my blog but I'll just say it again so that it is clear going into this review: I don't like Trigger very much. Visually I'm not a fan of Trigger works with the exception of Kiznaiver and a quick scroll through their titles on MAL reminded me of … Continue reading SSSS.Gridman Episode 1: So That Happened
Given I ended the season one review with a firm statement saying I was done with this show and not interested in a season two, it seems strange that as we go into the Autumn season that I was overcome with curiosity about what they were going to do in a second season. The final … Continue reading Space Battleship Tiramisu Zwei Episode 1: Subaru and Isuzu are Still At It
School clubs, cute girls doing random things, strange supernatural rituals that somehow turn out to work with interesting results, these are all things we've seen before. Yet we know the formula works well enough provided it is linked to a decent story so I guess we're all wondering now whether The Girl in Twilight is going to give us a decent story or not.
One final attempt at sending Mayuri and Suzuha into the past to change everything (or rather get Okabe back into trying to save Kurisu which the audience already knows happens so I'm not entirely sure if there was any point to this or not) and then we have a few loose ends to tie up but otherwise we're done. Okay, there's still an OVA to go so I guess there's more to this story but I think for me, I'm done.
