Tuesday’s Top 5: Anime Princes

Tuesday's Top 5

There's something about growing up on a heavy dose of fairy tales and fantasy that leaves me with this ridiculous urge to still fantasise about the prince riding up on his noble steed and sweeping me off my feet, despite the fact that if common-sense hadn't knocked that notion out of me, Shrek really should have. And yet, I can't help but feel my heart do a little skip when we're introduced to an anime prince who looks like they might be the hero I was holding out for.

Tuesday’s Top 5: Surprisingly Good Shows That Came Out in 2017

Tuesday's Top 5

One thing I'd like to make really clear is that this is not my list of best anime from 2017. That will come out in a few weeks time and will also include the results of the reader poll, so for the time being, I'm going to give some of my other top 5's from … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Surprisingly Good Shows That Came Out in 2017

The Royal Tutor Series Review: I’m Certain This Was Listed as a Comedy

Overview: Heine Wittgenstein has been called to tutor four of the royal princes with the task of training them to be future kings (the implications of potentially five candidates clamouring for the throne are hinted at but never dealt with). On arrival, Heine has his hands full winning over the four princes who aren't exactly … Continue reading The Royal Tutor Series Review: I’m Certain This Was Listed as a Comedy

The Royal Tutor Episode 12

Review: I'm pretty happy with how this has resolved and feel a nice sense of completion here. Certainly there's more story to be told but I'm really pretty happy here and now and don't have much desire to watch on should there ever be a sequel. That's mostly because the issue of the Royal Tutor … Continue reading The Royal Tutor Episode 12

The Royal Tutor Episode 11

Review: For a show I only grudgingly tried and at first kind of tolerated as the humour was either hit or miss, I've actually grown to really enjoy this particular anime mid-week. The second half of the show has definitely focused more on the drama than the comedy aspects and for me that is actually … Continue reading The Royal Tutor Episode 11

Spring 2017 Week 10

We're getting close to the end for some of these shows and I'd love to know which ending you are most looking forward to. For me, I'm actually just kind of sad that I'm going to have to wait on some of the endings because I may or may not get to see them while … Continue reading Spring 2017 Week 10

The Royal Tutor Episode 10

Review: Not a lot happens this episode because we initially get the conversation that reveals Rosenberg probably knows who Heine is (or was) and just kind of leaves things hanging and then we watch the Princes fool around as they try to first figure out Heine's secret and then get super sappy and try to … Continue reading The Royal Tutor Episode 10

Spring 2017 Week 9

Alright, I wasn't crazily looking forward to all the sequel seasons that came out this Spring but most of these have actually turned out to be pretty cool so it has made this season of sequels actually pretty fun to watch. I can't say the same this week for a lot of the shows in … Continue reading Spring 2017 Week 9

The Royal Tutor Episode 9

Review: It must have been the week for tepid episodes. Outside of my must watch shows, most of the others delivered watchable but fairly ordinary content and The Royal Tutor, which has been pleasantly entertaining thus far, wasn't an exception. Arguably, the moves by those against the Princes got more overt with a smear campaign … Continue reading The Royal Tutor Episode 9

Spring 2017 Week 8

This week kind of didn't go to plan in the real world at all so I'm thinking a lot of episodes this week will need a rewatch when I'm a little less distracted. That said, the Spring season is still going strong and I'm enjoying the shows I've stuck with. While the usually entertaining category … Continue reading Spring 2017 Week 8
