Days Episode 24

Review: Well, if you made it this far through Days you won't come across anything surprising in this final episode of season 1 (let's all say thank-you that season 2 has already been confirmed or this would be a very different review about a lack of resolution). Basically if you have enjoyed the ride to … Continue reading Days Episode 24

Days Episode 23

Review: So Days continues to surprise me as it makes me care time and again about the outcome of the game even if it feels this week like it was a foregone conclusion. The ride getting to that final goal was definitely exciting. Of course, once again, we spent the entire episode watching the game … Continue reading Days Episode 23

Days Episode 22

Review: After two full episodes the game still isn't over and I must point out that the animation definitely took a downward turn again this episode. Normally that doesn't bother me but the sheer number of still images this week, plus some really terrible faces on background characters, kind of ruined the overall tension of … Continue reading Days Episode 22

Days Episode 21

Review: The game from last week continues and we see both sides make some mistakes and we also get to see the team's first years struggle to deal with the pressure of suddenly being forced into a high pressure game. At the centre though is Tsukamoto who has finally genuinely found a love of the … Continue reading Days Episode 21

Days Episode 20

Review: Days continues into the tournament and we injure yet more players before the semi-finals. Of course, we only make it into the first couple of minutes of that game before it is episode over. So what did we do for the rest of the episode? Well, we spent a lot of it with the … Continue reading Days Episode 20

Days Episode 19

Review: Days doesn't do all that much this week and yet kind of does what it needs to. The summer camp ends (and amazingly Tsukamoto and Kazama are just over their conflict so that was a plot thread that went nowhere) and they are now in the preliminaries fighting for a spot at nationals. Events … Continue reading Days Episode 19

Days Episode 18

Review: My opinion about Days as a series is unchanged. There's a number of issues with pacing and characterisation going on. This episode, however, I loved. From start to finish I was absolutely engrossed. It helped that the main focus of this episode were the characters on the team we've spent the most time with. … Continue reading Days Episode 18

Days Episode 17

Review: Okay, I was ready to call this series dead in the water after we had over 3 minutes of recap from the previous episode before the opening song. 5 minutes in and we only just started with new material. However, that's when things got better and didn't stop. The game this time is actually … Continue reading Days Episode 17

Days Episode 16

Review: After feeling like I'd hit my limit of this last week I was pleasantly surprised by this episode. I complained that Tsukamoto hadn't really developed and they show us in the game this week that he is finally putting everything together in his own weird way. I was annoyed by the general lack of … Continue reading Days Episode 16

Kiss Him, Not Me Episode 2

Review: I'm not going to bother levelling my overall criticism of the premise of this show every single week so if you want to hear that check out my thoughts on episode 1. Episode 2 brings us more of the guys pursuing the girl and it becomes even clearer that only one of them has … Continue reading Kiss Him, Not Me Episode 2
