Overview: Time eating demons have stolen Victor's time leaving him looking younger and without memories of the past 12 years. Together with his son they are hunting the demon that ate his time in order to get it back. Review: This actually should have been kind of fun. Two guys with weapons that can slow … Continue reading Chronos Ruler Series Review: Cool Concept Does Not Equal Good Story
Review: As the final episode comes around I wonder if this show has accomplished anything? Victo/Victor (subtitles changed mid-series) still hasn't got his time back and in point of fact now knows it should be impossible to ever do so and yet apparently feels it could still happen. Kiri is still trailing after his useless … Continue reading Chronos Ruler Episode 13: At Last The End
Review: Chronos Ruler hasn't exactly been great. In fact, the writing and characters have been pretty terrible and these final episodes are certainly cementing that point. Episode 11 was basically a series of extended mini-fights with the side characters before we got back to the main boss and episode 12 pretty much screams boss fight … Continue reading Chronos Ruler Episode 12: Obvious Symoblism Before A Final Form Reveal
Review: Last week set up three separate fights for this week and episode 11 delivered but my question becomes, why bother? When all three fights follow the exact same pattern of one guy gets the upper hand and monologues about their amazing technique before they go for the kill and the other guy does the … Continue reading Chronos Ruler Episode 11: What is a Fight Without a Twist?
Review: So this week the Kiri, Blaze, and the maybe wife of Victo are running around the forest fighting a snake. That is literally the entire part of their role this week because they just kind of drag it out intercut with scenes of Victo dealing with his family issues. The snake runs, they chase, … Continue reading Chronos Ruler Episode 9: Victo Finally Got Slapped, by Himself
Review: You know, there's something to be said for knowing when to cut your losses and if I was a sensible person, I'd be cutting Chronos Ruler from my watch list. It has never been particularly good but there was at least the hopeful notion that it might do something really interesting with the time … Continue reading Chronos Ruler Episode 7: Why Am I Still Watching This?
Review: This show continues to have an intriguing premise and some interesting developments but is so busy burying it all under poor execution, terrible characterisation and dialogue, as well as some really cheap jokes to actually deliver on what might otherwise be a fairly promising show. You walk away from each episode wanting to have … Continue reading Chronos Ruler Episode 6: I Hate You / I Love You
Review Episode 4: I'm going to comment on the opening of this anime, because I haven't in the reviews of episodes 1 - 3. What is that supposed to be? In addition to sounding horrible (which I guess is technically subjective), visually it is an eyesore. Moving away from that, this episode was a direct … Continue reading Chronos Ruler Episodes 4 + 5: My Time is Faster Than Your Time
Review: At least someone is asking what happened to all these missing Bloodivores. It doesn't look like he's actually going to find an answer any time soon (and I'm pretty sure that they are setting him up to get in over his head and then killed) but at least someone is asking. That said, our … Continue reading Bloodivores Episodes 4
