Sagrada Reset Episode 21: Decisions and Consequences

Review: There's a real sense of tension in this episode and it is a feeling that has been lacking from the majority of the season. Suddenly it feels very real that Kei might lose because for once resetting is not going to solve the problem and the witch has run out of tricks to help … Continue reading Sagrada Reset Episode 21: Decisions and Consequences

Sagrada Reset Episode 10

Review: This show is incredibly frustrating. Sagrada Reset this week took us back to Kei's first experienced reset and his first time realising his ability as well as his first encounter with the Bureau. That in and of itself is more than enough information for an episode if they deal with any of it but … Continue reading Sagrada Reset Episode 10

Food Wars Episode 11

Review: From a story point of view, this episode is more interesting. We have a new challenge with new rules in a new location and we seem to be progressing beyond just creating great food and now we're actually focussing on practical cooking. And there in lies the problem with this episode. Erina. She so … Continue reading Food Wars Episode 11

Food Wars Episode 10

Review: If you don't know who won, stop reading and go watch the episode. Is it wrong that I'm glad Akira won the election? Soma winning would have been ridiculous given the skill gap from the beginning. And then the do over. Serve your final dish in the first place. With Ryo, I just don't … Continue reading Food Wars Episode 10

Food Wars Season 2 Episode 9

Review: Back we go to the kitchen only now the roof opens and we can see the moon. So different. And there are three people cooking. Completely different from every other match. Except that it isn't. The show fails to raise the stakes or the tension in this finals match. More importantly, all three characters … Continue reading Food Wars Season 2 Episode 9

Food Wars Season 2 Episode 8

Review: This is the second episode this season that I have really and thoroughly enjoyed watching. Amazingly enough, the previous one was Soma's preparation for his last match. The common theme, we don't spend the entire episode just watching the characters cook. Soma goes to the market. We hear various opinions about fish. We brainstorm. … Continue reading Food Wars Season 2 Episode 8

Food Wars Season 2 Episode 7

Review: While going into this episode I really didn't care who won this battle as neither of the characters competing had particularly interested me up until this point, somehow I got drawn into their match. The moment of judging was particularly tense and that outcome was actually kind of cool. I'm not going to say … Continue reading Food Wars Season 2 Episode 7

Food Wars Episode 6

Review: Should the episode be accused of lacking tension because the outcome was inevitable? Probably not. However, it really did feel like it was marking time until the tasting. I was hoping they wouldn't stretch this contest the whole episode and we could move forward, but instead they milked this battle to the last minute … Continue reading Food Wars Episode 6

Food Wars Episode 5

Review: I enjoyed this episode a lot more than the previous ones. I think the main reason this felt like an improvement was we only spent the final few moments of the episode in the arena. The rest of this episode was a return to seeing Soma try and test food and talk to his … Continue reading Food Wars Episode 5

Food Wars Episode 4

Review: I spent a great deal of this episode hating it and wishing it would end. I don't like Aldini as a character and the new guy that's come along is scum. Then I realised, that somehow this episode actually made me feel sorry for Aldini and respect him for trying to overcome in the … Continue reading Food Wars Episode 4
