Tales of Zestiria The X Season 2 Series Review

Overview: I previously reviewed season 1 of Tales of Zestiria the X, the story of Sorey the Shepherd on his journey to purify the malevolence of the world. Season 2 continues Sorey's journey as he eventually gets around to dealing with the Lord of Calamity. I reviewed this week to week here. Review (spoilers for … Continue reading Tales of Zestiria The X Season 2 Series Review

Tales of Zestiria The X Season 2 Episode 13

Review: While this final episode is not bad when compared to the rest of the show, it was definitely hurt by the extended break between episode 12 and 13. The momentum (what little this show had) was definitely gone and it took me awhile to remember exactly where we'd left the characters and then I … Continue reading Tales of Zestiria The X Season 2 Episode 13

Tales of Zestiria the X Season 2 Episode 12

Review: You know that feeling you get when you think something is a final and then it isn't? I kind of got that this week. There just doesn't seem any reason to stretch this another episode but stretch it we will. But hey, we finally got back story on Michael, the former shepherd, and how … Continue reading Tales of Zestiria the X Season 2 Episode 12

Tales of Zestiria the X Season 2 Episode 11

Review (spoilers, no attempt to not reveal information): Possibly the whole Dezel sacrificing himself to blow away the dragons so that Sorey isn't forced to either attempt mass purification (which cannot end well) or to accept that maybe shooting them is the only option could have been dramatic and moving. Certainly his farewell to Rose … Continue reading Tales of Zestiria the X Season 2 Episode 11

Winter 2017 Week 10

And we've made it to week 10. Part of me is amazed that we're finally here and part of me is wondering why I'm still watching some of the shows I started this season, but there's still that end of season anticipation that is so much fun. Even if a show hasn't been great there's … Continue reading Winter 2017 Week 10

Tales of Zestiria the X Season 2 Episode 10

Review: Remembering way back when I started season 1 of this, one of me key issues was that the characters didn't feel like they were part of the world. The world was pretty and the characters were pretty, but the two didn't match. As time went on, this kind of got less noticeable (either because … Continue reading Tales of Zestiria the X Season 2 Episode 10

Winter 2017 Week 9

Week 9 has come and gone and we see the shows that are finishing up launch their final few episodes. This should be a realy exciting time and a couple of shows seem to acknowledge that, but there's a lot that are just going through the motions and may or may not deliver a satisfying … Continue reading Winter 2017 Week 9

Tales of Zestiria the X Season 2 Episode 9

Review: After kind of just aimlessly wandering and tying up loose ends for 8 episodes, we now just randomly have henchmen girl (I don't know her name, maybe we're told at some point but that one flew right by me) just exposition and info-dump us into the set up for a final battle. The Lord … Continue reading Tales of Zestiria the X Season 2 Episode 9

Tales of Zestiria the X Season 2 Episode 8

Review: Tales of Zestiria finally got down to business and brought all the main characters together in one place, faced an actual enemy, moved forward the political intrigue and finally actually let Alisha progress and not have the constant threat of a weak king and an overbearing would-be king in her way. In fact, so … Continue reading Tales of Zestiria the X Season 2 Episode 8

Tales of Zestiria the X Season 2 Episode 7

Review: This episode kind of feels like it's the episode for characters we haven't really seen since season 1 to appear for no other reason than to remind us they exist. Okay, they might serve some purpose in the overall story but if so, the connections they are drawing this episode seem tenuous. Besides, it … Continue reading Tales of Zestiria the X Season 2 Episode 7
