Taishou Otome Fairytale only kind of grabbed my interest because I was still looking for just something sweet or romantic for my watch list this season. I've got a lot of supernatural and somewhat edgy titles on my list and wanted some balance. So how was this first episode?
I was overly optimistic when I discussed the first three episodes of Battle Game in 5 Seconds. This survival action story quickly loses any of the elements that might have made it interesting and becomes quite the chore to watch. Be sure to read the full review.
I was avoiding trying Battle Game in 5 Seconds when I read the synopsis that indicated a whole bunch of people were dragged into another death match. Where have I seen that before? That said, the first three episodes turned out to be surprisingly watchable. But is it worth continuing?
