Steins;Gate 0 Episode 6: And Round and Round We Go

We're still relying on echoes of sentiment created by a parallel narrative to make us interested in this one, and this week my brain decided it just wasn't invested at all. By the time we get to yet another cliff-hanger ending in the episode this week, I'd more or less switched off. Last week I … Continue reading Steins;Gate 0 Episode 6: And Round and Round We Go

Steins;Gate 0 Episode 3: Kurisu and Okabe Still Have It

Where do you stand on the new series of Steins;Gate? While it has taken some time to warm up, this episode sees far more of the … Continue reading Steins;Gate 0 Episode 3: Kurisu and Okabe Still Have It

Steins;Gate 0 Episode 2: Okabe Reacts

I'm glad I'm watching this with someone in real life as it gives me a chance at the end of each episode to discuss my thoughts and turn them over and get a slightly different perspective on things.

Katsugeki Touken Ranbu Episode 13: History Was Saved, Though Why That Matters Is Still a Mystery

Review: And they met with their old master, defeated the thousand enemies, watched their master die, and then they went on a next mission. The End. Alright, that probably isn't fair to the show. They actually did manage to make the two swords reuniting with their master fairly emotive in the end, which was a … Continue reading Katsugeki Touken Ranbu Episode 13: History Was Saved, Though Why That Matters Is Still a Mystery

Katsugeki Touken Ranbu Episode 12 – Personal Crisis Trumps Greater Narrative

Review: There were a few moments where I was watching this episode and felt bitterly disappointed that this show still has an episode to go.
