Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai Episodes 6 and 7 If I needed any more convincing that Bunny Girl Senpai was an anime worth watching this season, episode 6 which concluded the Laplace's Demon Arc and episode 7 which introduces a new problem for Sakuta to solve and a adds two new additions … Continue reading How To Build An Fascinating Harem Starting With A Bunny Girl
Natsume Volume 4 takes a slightly different turn. In this volume we get three chapters and then three short stories. Admittedly, one of those short stories is featuring the Little Fox so I was super happy to read it but it was an interesting change where the first three volumes had four chapters fairly consistently. … Continue reading Natsume’s Book of Friends Volume 4 Manga Review: The Pain of Farewell
There's something fairly brilliant about this show when it delivers what I worried it would do and yet manages to make me appreciate it anyway. Sakurajima Mai is in fact sidelined quite substantially this episode, being sent off to film on location elsewhere after an early scene with Sakuta and then literally just getting to phone it in for the remainder of the episode. And yet, this didn't hurt the show as much as I feared it would.
The bliss of reading Natsume continues in volume 3. While I'm still encountering stories that I'm familiar with from the anime, seeing them play out in this slightly different form remains a really fantastic experience. If I was looking for an overall idea in this volume it would be one of meetings and partings. A … Continue reading Natsume’s Book of Friends Volume 3 Manga Review: New Friends and Foes
Now, that isn't to say Castlevania is bad. Because, it actually is quite a fun little romp of a story provided the copious blood and guts being splashed around aren't a problem and the clear sequel bait endings for the surviving cast members doesn't annoy. If this had come out in a solid chunk and I'd binged the 12 episodes altogether, I'd have had an absolute blast...
I was kind of intrigued by the idea that Bunny Girl Senpai was going to move onto a story using Laplace's Demon. It seemed like the thought experiment could yield a fairly interesting premise. Which mean that it was kind of a disappointment to see them turn what should be an incredibly interesting look at … Continue reading Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai Episode 4: Time Loops and Laplace’s Demon – Not Sure About That
Outside of just how great spending time with this pair of characters is, this episode gave a very satisfying, if slightly cringe-worthy, conclusion to the mystery of Mai's disappearance. There's enough emotional tension built up and while you could get quite critical of Sakuta's solution if you wanted to be really jaded about the whole thing...
Natsume's magical journey continues in this second volume of the manga. This time around we have new characters, new friends and new partings. All of it feeds into the overall feeling that is Natsume's Book of Friends which is one of pure bliss and reading this volume was a fantastic experience. Like volume 1, we … Continue reading Natsume’s Book of Friends Volume 2 Manga Review: Expanding The World
The weirdly compelling first episode of Bunny Girl Senpai turned out not to just be a fluke as episode 2 delves further into the weird mystery of Adolescent Syndrome and the growing relationship (not quite sure what relationship) between Sakuta and Mai. It's a pretty fascinating journey so far even as it remain strictly low … Continue reading Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai Episode 2: When Life Makes You Disappear
While this anime isn't exactly going to change the world it was perhaps one of the more fun titles from the Summer Season. If you like a bit of fun and action with vampires, werewolves and other things that go bump in the night and you'll probably find something to enjoy in Phantom in the Twilight.
