Review: This really is just an elaborate game of pass the parcel that we've been watching over these ten weeks. Yazuki starts with Hideyoshi and has literally just been passed around through every other character's strong hold and now she's going back to Hideyoshi. It really just feels fairly empty and pointless at this stage. … Continue reading Sengoku Night Blood Episode 10: And She Goes Back to Hideyoshi
Review: This story is determined to only make the yakuma actually bad because everytime we have one of these war lords looking all scary and intimidating (and actually being intimidating given our heroine has been kidnapped, locked in a shed, and - by our most recent contender - threatened with death if she tries to … Continue reading Sengoku Night Blood Episode 9: No Bad Guys Here
Review: So Yuzuki has now officially met all of the important characters as she's been taken for visits, been abducted, found, abducted again, abducted from the abductors, etc, etc, etc. I'm not sure that any of this makes for a plot that makes sense but at least someone finally put together the basic point that … Continue reading Sengoku Night Blood Episode 8: Pass the Parcel?
Yes, this is another fairly random post where I have collected my favourite quotes from this season (so far) in one place. I'd love it if you would share your favourite lines or quotes from the season in the comments. Thanks for reading. If you enjoyed this post and like the blog, consider becoming a … Continue reading Anime Quotes – Autumn 2017
Review: I'm not actually dropping this show nor do I actually intend to stop watching. It was more that Date's reasoning that it wasn't locking her up if he didn't lock the door to the warehouse really kind of bothered me. If you kidnap the girl and stuff her in a warehouse overnight that is … Continue reading Sengoku Night Blood Episode 7: It Isn’t Dropping If I Just Stop Watching
As we reach the half-way point for a lot of shows (though a number of these will continue on for a second cour) I am still loving this season. It could just be that I found the Summer season fairly weak and this season looks good by comparison, but I actually kind of feel like … Continue reading Autumn 2017 Week 6
Review: This episode felt so incredibly long. We start with them wondering what has happened to the girl and we end with them finding out she's with another warlord. In between, we mostly follow Yuzuki around as she lets her leg heal and manages to heal another guy's emotional wounds. Needless to say, I wasn't … Continue reading Sengoku Night Blood Episode 6: That Was A Long 20 Minutes
This continues to be a fantastic season for me in finding anime that I have really taken a shine to. The shows aren't perfect and how many of them will stand a rewatch test after the fact (or even manage to end well) still remains to be seen, but so far I have genuinely loved … Continue reading Autumn 2017 Week 5
Review: As much as I still enjoyed this episode as a very laid back kind of historical-harem thing there were definitely some issues this week. The most pressing being why even bother with the premise of alternate reality with vampires and werewolves involved in the warring states if other than pointy or furry ears you … Continue reading Sengoku Night Blood Episode 5: Why Have Vampires and Werewolves If You Don’t Do Anything With Them?
Review: I didn't actually dislike this episode, but I think it highlights the fact that this show is unashamed of what it is and it isn't trying to reach beyond that. Every move and every singe character is at this point predictable. Even the two characters who act like they hate each other but actually … Continue reading Sengoku Night Blood Episode 4: Heroine Gets a Fever,There’s An Original Development
