While nothing in this second season will change my opinion that season one of The Promised Neverland was an excellent, well crafted narrative that hit just the right emotional notes, there's no avoiding the fact that season 2 is pretty much everything season 1 wasn't and the end result is a less than satisfying mess. Be sure to read the full review and I'd love to know your thoughts on the series so leave me a comment. I will however warn there are spoilers for the final episode in this review which I would normally avoid but in this case I kind of feel I should spare people from having to watch this themselves so it is kind of needed.
I'm still fairly certain I reviewed Another at some point in the past but I could not find the post when I did my reflection on the decade list and so here we are. My thoughts on one of my favourite horror anime.
There's magical girls, encounters with witches and the possible memory of a missing sick sister and yet I couldn't help but feel this episode felt a little empty. At least there's plenty of pretty backgrounds to look at.
Magia Record is another entry in the Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica franchise, though apparently it is based off a spin-off game. Having only watch the original anime series and none of the movies and the like, I'm a little out of the loop as to how this fits in the grand story if at all, but I know I am up for some more magical girl antics and so I'm pretty much on board with this anime from the start.
The Promised Neverland Episode 6 Review - Don and Gilda narrowly avoid discovery, or maybe not. It is hard to tell with Isabella as to what she knows but doesn't mention and what she is unaware of. However, we've got traitors galore this episode and the question is, can anyone's word be trusted?
That minor nagging voice from last week telling me this might get better has now been dragged out and beaten to death by common sense. Angels of Death is boring which is the most irredeemable thing something made for entertainment can ever be. I love psychological horror. I love bad horror. Cheesy dialogue. Cliche set … Continue reading Angels of Death Episode 4: This Is The End
Episode 3 continues with the mediocrity and makes it clear that no one really thought through how this would play out as an anime. I'd like to say I was done with this, but there's this minor nagging voice in my head telling me it might get better. There's not much positive to say about … Continue reading Angels of Death Episode 3: Surrender to Game Style Dialogue and Repetition
While the first episode of Angels of Death was intriguing in its atmosphere, episode 2 kind of just walks us through a level with mediocre results. Continuing on directly from the end of episode 1, episode 2 ends with Zack refusing to kill Rachel because of the bored look on her face but promises to … Continue reading Angels of Death Episode 2: When It Feels Like You Are Watching A Play Through Rather Than An Anime
Rachel has woken up in a strange building without much in the way of memories. After talking to a type-writer she gets into the elevator just as she hears an announcement that calls the girl in the basement a sacrifice. After that, things get weird. There's something inherently creepy about hospitals, basements, and isolation and … Continue reading Angels of Death Episode 1: Here’s This Season’s Edgy Show
