Senku has just found a village of potential followers but can he get them to trust him? Probably not if he keeps talking to himself about taking over and reshaping the world. Dr Stone this week brings us new characters to explore.

For someone supposedly so smart I can't help but think Senku's actions and plan here was pretty stupid. And that was enough to make this episode of Dr Stone a somewhat less than thrilling experience this week as I thought of all the ways the plan could have, and should have, gone wrong. Fortunately there is some light at the end of the tunnel: Yuzuriha finally did more than be the damsel in distress.

Hi all! Are you surprised to see me here? For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Irina and I like anime. I like it so much that I have a little blog on the subject that I have been posting on for a bit over a year now, during which time … Continue reading The Promised Neverland Fact Check – Sheets
There are very few words for how disappointing these final two episodes are. Mostly because this demonstrates an incredible lack of either planning to end the story at a reasonable rest point OR lack of care for an audience that will be left without anything resembling closure and no announcement of follow up. While not … Continue reading Frankenstein Family Episodes 11 + 12
Episodes 9 and 10 bring some heavy drama in the form of Snow getting sick and the family rallying to help him. Somewhere along the line that turned into Snow turning into a half-dog monster and running into Sumire (the girl Tanisu has been crushing on).
