Another reverse harem time travelling heroine story. Reverse harem anime are becoming a fair staple of the seasonal line up with a handful of them coming out each year and the time-travelling heroine is starting to be a recurring theme. Meiji Tokyo Renka doesn’t bring a single new idea to the table as we have … Continue reading Meiji Tokyo Renka Series Review
We're back and this time Arthifis and I are discussing the mid-season of Meiji Tokyo Renka and we have been having a great time with this one. If you hop on over to the Anime Shelter you will find our thoughts on The Rising of the Shield Hero. Anyway, I'll be in red and Arthifis … Continue reading Friendly Talks With Arthifis – Meiji Tokyo Renka Episodes 5 – 9
This is part of a series of re-posts of older reviews on 100 Word Anime. The original review came out in August 2016 and can be found here. I first watched Erased when it aired and it was an anime everyone was talking about. Being apart of the conversation was fantastic particularly as it was a … Continue reading Erased Series Review: Weak Mystery, Great Character Drama
Right from episode one of Steins;Gate 0 I kind of sat on the fence about whether or not I was on board with this most recent addition to the Steins;Gate anime world. Overall it was an up and down experience but now we come to the final review and I have to figure out exactly how I feel about this show.
Even by those dangerously low standards, I would find it incredibly hard to recommend The Master of Ragnarok & Blesser or Einherjar. The sheer number of things this anime does to shoot itself in the foot along the way is nearly mind-boggling and that is before you get to a final episode that just left me shaking my head and wondering why on earth I'd just given the show three months of my life in episodic reviews.
One final attempt at sending Mayuri and Suzuha into the past to change everything (or rather get Okabe back into trying to save Kurisu which the audience already knows happens so I'm not entirely sure if there was any point to this or not) and then we have a few loose ends to tie up but otherwise we're done. Okay, there's still an OVA to go so I guess there's more to this story but I think for me, I'm done.
Okabe may have returned to the past after 3000 time leaps with new found determination but that doesn't mean the obstacles he was facing have gotten any smaller. Episode 22 of Steins;Gate 0 has some serious brainstorming taking place before the characters face an incredibly tough choice. Not a lot physically happens this episode. There … Continue reading Steins;Gate 0 Episode 22: Farewell Amadeus
Right, as much as I kind of feel Steins;Gate 0 has been overly drawn out for the amount of content it has and that about half the characters in it haven't been needed for much of anything, I cannot deny the pure joy I got out of this episode. Hououin Kyouma is back. There's been … Continue reading Steins;Gate 0 Episode 21: I’ve Missed Hououin Kyouma
You know when things go wrong and there's always that person who tells you not to worry because it isn't the end of the world? For Okabe that moment isn't coming because in this episode he really is seeing what happens after the failure to 'fix' the future back in 2011. I've made no secret … Continue reading Steins;Gate 0 Episode 20: It’s The End of the World
It's all well and good for Okabe to suddenly gain a sense of urgency and a desire to right wrongs and 'fix' things; however as Daru correctly points out, it is Okabe who has been ignoring them and stalling progress on the very machine that he'll now rely on to 'save' everyone. Even then, the consequences of his choices are unknown so he can't really assure anyone that he will in fact succeed.
