WorldEnd Episode 12

Review: I was kind of wondering where this show would end given how it began, and it doesn't really disappoint. The final episode is extremely reminiscent of the first, including bringing back specific scenes we saw at the start of the first episode and the great use of music (missed that during the middle of … Continue reading WorldEnd Episode 12

WorldEnd Episode 11

Review: I've definitely come to the conclusion during the course of watching this show that Willem is an idiot. A well intentioned, hard working, fairly knowledgable, idiot. He's already understood that things don't work out for him and that the world is not that kind. He's already come to terms with failing to succeed at … Continue reading WorldEnd Episode 11

WorldEnd Episode 10

Review (Spoiler warning for the second half of the episode in case you haven't watched): We've come a long way and nowhere in this series. While the reveals were coming thick and fast this episode it also indulged in one of my pet hates. Flash backs within the episode. If a character says something at … Continue reading WorldEnd Episode 10

WorldEnd Episode 9

Review: This episode continues to focus on Chtholly and her disintegration, focussing on her loss of memories. Early in the episode Ithea reveals that she did in fact lose her memories and woke up in a body that wasn't her and the only reason she's been able to pretend to be the person everyone knew … Continue reading WorldEnd Episode 9

WorldEnd Episode 8

Review: This episode felt long. I know it went the same length of time as every other episode but honestly when this got to the midway point I had to wonder why it wasn't already finished as it felt like I'd been watching forever. Turns out the destroyed ship from last week with the two … Continue reading WorldEnd Episode 8

WorldEnd Episode 7

Review: We are introduced to two new fairies this week (though this show can't decide if they are fairies, leprechauns or spirits at this point and seem to use the terms more or less interchangeably depending on how cryptic they'd like to be at the time).¬† They don't get a lot of time in the … Continue reading WorldEnd Episode 7

WorldEnd Episode 6

Review: WorldEnd as a series continues to run incredibly hot and cold. There are some truly amazing moments and well delivered scenes where everything just falls perfectly into place complete with atmospheric music. Then there's all the stuff in between where you wonder if you are even watching the same show. This episode was no … Continue reading WorldEnd Episode 6

WorldEnd Episode 5

Review: Well we did get a flash back of the fight on island 15 which revealed a new enemy other than the one they were already fighting. But why spend time worrying about that when there is sightseeing and the luring of clich√© gang bosses to be had. Seriously. What was the point of this … Continue reading WorldEnd Episode 5

WorldEnd Episode 4

Review: My criticism of this series is probably going to be the same for the rest of its run (unless it does something truly horrendous). There's actually some really interesting elements to the world and the story here, unfortunately they are shrouded underneath layers of light novel tropes that just don't seem to fit into … Continue reading WorldEnd Episode 4
