When things go wrong for a series, it is sometimes good to return to your roots. Unfortunately, it doesn't work here given the story had pushed on a bit and now Subaru just getting OCD about dirt is kind of a weak consolation prize. Apparently we have one episode left to go which really isn't … Continue reading Space Battleship Tiramisu Episode 12: Back to Jokes About Dirty Cockpits
Let's take a break from space fights to take a stab at reality TV and the returning of Subaru's space dog. Rather, let's not because the end result isn't great. It might be petty to point out that a parody set in space that has featured giant space-dogs, robots with an evil switch, and clones … Continue reading Space Battleship Tiramisu Episode 11: Another Flat Episode
It has been at least half a season since the last episode of this comedy anime made me want to quit watching. However, that just makes this week's lacklustre effort all the more disappointing. This episode of Space Battleship Tiramisu just kind of didn't do anything. We have the clone Subaru and his brother coming … Continue reading Space Battleship Tiramisu Episode 10: Another Mis-Fire
Fortunately the robot has proven a brief distraction and we seem to be continuing with what counts for a plot in this anime. And for the brief run-time its proving surprisingly interesting. The robot situation was actually dealt with surprisingly quickly and I was quite satisfied with the outcome. Okay, the whole having a personality … Continue reading Space Battleship Tiramisu Episode 9: Happiness and Tragedy
After a very brief stint away, Subaru returns to the Tiramisu to discover a robot has moved into his room. As you do. Not sure if this is a good development or not. If I thought that Subaru going with his brother would lead to some sort of answers about anything I was clearly wrong … Continue reading Space Battleship Tiramisu Episode 8: So What’s With The Robot?
This episode had a serious issue with balancing the drama of the two reuniting and the comedic tone of the series. The end result wasn't exactly satisfying. I get six minutes isn't a long episode run time, even by anime standards, and in a show like this where they need to pack a number of … Continue reading Space Battleship Tiramisu Episode 7: Brothers Reunite
Stranded in space, memories of the past, and long lost brothers; I can't complain these two episodes were dull but I'm wondering if I'm watching the same anime I was previously. Episodes 5 + 6: After episode 4, I wasn't expecting all that much from this series and yet episodes 5 and 6 turned out … Continue reading Space Battleship Tiramisu Episodes 5 + 6: Did We Suddenly Stumble Upon a Space Melodrama?
When the anime goes to jokes about talking pubic hair, one has to wonder if they've already run out of material at episode 4. This episode is probably a good example of why I'm not a huge fan of comedy in any form. So far this anime has been relatively amusing and had a few … Continue reading Space Battleship Tiramisu Episode 4: Have They Run Dry Already?
Pushing ordinary set-ups into the realm of the absurd, this anime isn't great but it does make me smile. What do you think so far? Subaru has a small crisis this week when he's forced out of his normal cockpit and into the Captain's Daughter's overly pink sanctuary. This leads to an explosion, a brief … Continue reading Space Battleship Tiramisu Episode 3: Reality Is Cruel
This has pretty much established itself as a one note kind of show. Fortunately that one note is kind of amusing and with the short run time, this is a nice filler anime to watch. There's not a lot to say about this episode as really we get two basic skits featuring Subaru. The first … Continue reading Space Battleship Tiramisu Episode 2 – Short Skit in Space
