It is seriously hard to find a good horror anime and that isn't surprising given how few are released in general (when compared with the plethora of isekai stories or cute girls doing whatever anime). But it does make it hard to do a Halloween anime list each year when very little has changed. So … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Horror Anime Released in the Last 5 Years
Here we are and it is October and this year I'm going to be running Halloween themed top 5's all month long (not that Halloween is actually a thing where I live but any excuse to dust off some of my favourite anime and characters). Starting out with this list of anime characters that I … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Anime Characters That Creep Me Out
It's become a fairly common criticism of a number of shows. It's trying too hard to be...It's just trying to be edgy...It's trying too hard to be deep...And this week we added the question of whether or not Banana Fish was trying too hard to be shocking. As I read these sorts of comments and … Continue reading Should We Stop Mocking Stories For Trying?
As an avid bookworm myself I definitely appreciate seeing characters who read, who talk about books, and who generally respect stories and it is no surprise that some of my favourite characters ever are bookworms (though there are plenty of book reading characters who are neither here nor there really). Today I'm counting down my … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Anime Bookworms
Given I stopped doing episode reviews after episode 4, it should be fairly clear that this anime didn't really do much for me. And normally I would just drop it and call it a day, but I decided to finish watching it. Mostly because the madness of creating an anime season that follows on from … Continue reading Tokyo Ghoul:Re Series Review: This Franchise Demonstrates How Not To Adapt Something
I normally try and keep the top 5 posts pretty upbeat, but I can't deny I'm a little disappointed with the last season of anime. No, it isn't a sign that modern anime are dreadful or that seasonal watching is the problem. It is just that there were a lot of anime that just didn't … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Reasons The Anime of Spring 2018 Have Been a Bit Disappointing
Ever have a feeling like you've seen something before? That's what I'm getting from this episode of Tokyo Ghoul: Re. Who has time for questions such as who they are and what their purpose might be when we can plunge into an all out battle at the auction. We've got the doves, aogiri tree and … Continue reading Tokyo Ghoul:Re Episode 4: They All Fight
Spring bloomed with a whole pile of new anime to watch and as usual, more than a few of these are returning franchises with spin-offs, sequels, and reboots a plenty to be found in the line up (of course there's plenty of new titles as well to be found across the various streaming services). However, … Continue reading Friday’s Feature: Is Brand Familiarity Influencing Our Anime Viewing?
They seem to be working as a team, but there are so many horrible people here all after their own goal. Seems like nothings changed with Tokyo Ghoul. I know this anime is just getting going and it is building to an operation that looks like it might kick these into motion, but I couldn't … Continue reading Tokyo Ghoul:Re Episode 3: The Bleak Picture Continues
This second episode is painting a bit more of a bleak picture but I'm still left wondering what the point is. The team of not ghoul's are given some explanation in this episode and their personalities are fleshed out a little more, and yet that is possibly to the detriment of my enjoyment considering the … Continue reading Tokyo Ghoul:Re Episode 2: Not Kaneki Thinks He’s Happy
