Have you ever had that feeling of disappointment that comes along after you've read a really cool premise or a story seems to have an incredible setting and then literally nothing is done with it? Well for me, 2017 really delivered a lot of these sorts of shows where you had to wonder why they … Continue reading Friday’s Feature: What a Waste
Something different this season, I'm starting with the worst so that the best can follow. I will admit, this season the poll had the most votes for worst anime of the season and there was a clear winner fairly early on. So, first I'll share my picks for worst of the season (keeping in mind … Continue reading The Worst of Autumn 2017
Review: There's always a sigh of relief that comes with the end of a show that has become tedium to watch. This one doesn't even get to declare itself a bad show. It is just kind of there. And that's all that can be said of this final episode as well. The boys get together … Continue reading Sengoku Night Blood Episode 12: Do We Celebrate Yet?
Review: I think what continues to bug me the most about this show is there is actually an interesting premise here, buried underneath the inane chatter that clutters most of the screen time. This alternative view of the warring states could have been interesting if the show had cared to actually examine it or even … Continue reading Sengoku Night Blood Episode 11: Once a Damsel in Distress
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
