The Silver Guardian Series Review

Overview: The synopsis on Crunchyroll tells me this is the story of Suigin saving Riku Rei. It kind of starts that way from about episode 2 to episode 4 or 5. After that I'm not so sure even the writers knew what this show was actually about. I reviewed this show weekly so if you … Continue reading The Silver Guardian Series Review

The Silver Guardian Episode 12

Review: Seriously, I haven't the slightest idea what the intention was. This apparently has a second season planned for next year and I won't be watching it. Really? We start off in the fight Suigin dropped into last week. He still can't actually fight so Twin Star turns into a dragon and ends the battle. … Continue reading The Silver Guardian Episode 12

The Silver Guardian Episode 11

Review: I love that this show has absolutely zero sense of urgency or desire to actually deal with its main plot. Otherwise, I might actually start to feel concerned for some of the characters. Instead, our kidnap victim is now doing a Princess Leia impersonation and for some reason joining weird cult guys though we … Continue reading The Silver Guardian Episode 11

The Silver Guardian Episode 10

Review: I moved the Silver Guardian down to the 'They Made This' category after episode 10. The first episode of this was poorly done but intriguing. We then had about 4 or so episodes where they were actually building a reasonable story with two characters that, while generic, we could get behind. Then we've had … Continue reading The Silver Guardian Episode 10

The Silver Guardian Episode 9

Review: It's always a bad sign for a series when I'm googling the episode count by the end of the episode. Basically I'm wondering whether this is close enough to done that I should just see it through or whether I should let it go. The concept was always interesting enough and earlier episodes (not … Continue reading The Silver Guardian Episode 9

The Silver Guardian Episode 8

Review: So the grandfather's left over data apparently came with an expiry because it broke apart and disappeared which would have been fine, but if he knew his time was limited maybe he should have been a bit more forthcoming with some actual explanations. Such as what is a tomb guardian, why are they needed, … Continue reading The Silver Guardian Episode 8

The Silver Guardian Episode 7

Review: There's a lot that could be said about this episode. We could talk about the uselessness of Twin Star who showed up, pressed herself against Suigin in the previous episode before dragging him into the game, and then ran away during this episode at the first sign of trouble. Or we could talk about … Continue reading The Silver Guardian Episode 7

The Silver Guardian Episode 6

Review: It's taken six episodes but hey we finally went inside the game they told us in the write up they were going to get sucked inside of. Despite the sarcasm of that statement, I was going to say that this was a surprisingly good episode in a series that started out very ordinary and … Continue reading The Silver Guardian Episode 6

The Silver Guardian Episode 5

Review: The murder is finally addressed and the fallout from it really keeps things moving forward. Riku is understandably upset, but more than that she's targeted. Suigin is given a gift and learns that he was actually a relative and also gets a lot of money in the new game (which if I remember they … Continue reading The Silver Guardian Episode 5

The Silver Guardian Episode 4

Review: After the introductory episode where it was made clear that something was going to happen in this story, it has taken 3 full episodes for that something to actually happen, and even then it is more an introduction to it rather than it happening. The game ends but the last night goes horribly wrong … Continue reading The Silver Guardian Episode 4
