Why ask me to recommend a kids' anime? Sure, like most people I can give you a list of anime I watched when I was younger, but whether that makes it appropriate for your child is still up for discussion.
Overview: There's no denying that season 1 of this show made me sit up and take notice when I picked it up mid-season after reading many positive reviews. The second season continues Midoriya's journey (as well as the rest of the students' journies) to becoming a hero. Earlier I covered some of the ideas in … Continue reading My Hero Academia Season 2 Series Review: Shining the Light on Heroes and Villains
Review: I had a lot of time for thinking while watching this episode, mostly because other than super dramatic music and various bits of magic zipping across the screen not a lot was going on in the first half. The fights may look visually impressive for the first two or so passes, but as Ernesti … Continue reading Knight’s & Magic Episode 12: Are We Sure Ernesti Isn’t a Villain?
Review: If this wasn't the second last episode of the season, you would swear it was a filler episode. We get the match ups of most of the characters we don't really care about (Uraraka is the exception here but her match is over and done in almost an instant). While there's certainly merit to … Continue reading My Hero Academia Episode 36: And So They Fought
Review: This episode certainly continued with the idea of social media and looking at how Stain's influence is spreading in the world of heroes, at least those ideas were running around in the background and permeating the set up for what is apparently to come. I'm glad I spent some time on this idea in … Continue reading My Hero Academia Episode 33: All Might’s Hesitation
Review Episode 31: I"m going to have to write a feature for later in the week on this one because there's a lot coming through in this episode. It's called "The Aftermath of Hero Killer Stain" and that's exactly what it gives us. There's no simple he went to jail the end scenario here. What … Continue reading My Hero Academia Episodes 31 + 32: Ideas Really Are Bullet Proof
Review Episode 29: I remember back when the tournament arc started the reason I was disappointed with that was because tournament arcs just can't do high stakes for real. The worst that will happen is they'll lose (although My Hero Academia managed to put its own spin on that with Midoriya doing some permanent damage … Continue reading My Hero Academia Episodes 29 + 30: The Boys Are Back Together
Review Episode 27: No surprise that most of this episode focusses on Midoriya's meeting with Gran Torino and learning a little bit more about his power. The other kids get a look in as we see the start of their internships and they realise reality is quite different from their dreams. That said, I have … Continue reading My Hero Academia Episodes 27 + 28: Time For a Power Up
Attack on Titan Season 2 Overview: Continuing on from season 1 after the fight with Annie, Attack on Titan Season 2 sees the scouts trying to investigate when reports of titans inside the walls come in. Then we spend a lot of time running around and screaming. It is attack on titan after all. Attack … Continue reading Attack on Titan Season 2 Series Review
Review: What was that? Oh, that was my heart skipping a beat and me forgetting that I can actually breathe. We're all good. Given this episode gave us a recap, reminding us how angry Bakugo is as a character all the time and a prep room confrontation between the two characters before we got to … Continue reading My Hero Academia Season 2 Episode 25
