Twin Star Exorcists Episodes 16 – 18

Review: I picked this up again and watched another three episodes. It really is better in blocks than watching week to week. That said, I did find myself watching the clock at times feeling like the episodes were taking forever. And that's kind of odd given so much happened in these three episodes. Episode 16 … Continue reading Twin Star Exorcists Episodes 16 – 18

Twin Star Exorcists Episode 10

Review: After episode 9 where I kind of started actually liking this show, episode 10 is just a let down. Once again we're back to playing house and going through the hand holding, blushing, and needless anger clichés that come with it. The one kegare conflict comes and goes almost pointlessly and instead of dealing … Continue reading Twin Star Exorcists Episode 10

Twin Star Exorcists Episode 9

Review: Okay, I kind of liked this episode after only really tolerating this show thus far. Rokuro is still an emotional basket-case but finally some of it makes sense, and Benio has finally found a voice. This makes both characters far more likeable in this episode. Also, we finally meet a character who asks the … Continue reading Twin Star Exorcists Episode 9

Twin Star Exorcists Episode 8

Review: Best friend and fiancée having a squabble. Check. Strange guy from the past who is super powerful showing up. Check. Strange guy turns out to a mentor but also has a really bad attitude. Check. Twin Star is definitely not looking to do anything new but the pace of this episode and the emotional … Continue reading Twin Star Exorcists Episode 8

Twin Star Exorcists Episode 7

Review: As the series moves on I'm not liking it any more or less. I'd really love this show if it would stop focussing on forcing to young people into an artiifical relationship and if it would spend even a few minutes developing any of the support cast, and it would be fantastic if maybe … Continue reading Twin Star Exorcists Episode 7

Twin Star Exorcists Episode 6

An overview can be found on my previous review. Review: Rokuro is still loud and annoying. Benio is still laconic. The other exorcists are still completely useless. And, nothing that could be considered plot development happens this episode. Oh wait, Benio makes a friend. Kind of. Maybe. And Rokuro actually willingly goes to help the … Continue reading Twin Star Exorcists Episode 6

Twin Star Exorcists Episode 5

Overview: Rokuro is an exorcist only he doesn't want to be (so cue lots and lots of indignant pre-adolescent whingeing about destiny). Benio wants to be the strongest exorcist and hey, why not have the head of the exorcist order decide these two should one day get married. Review: This episode felt particularly grating in … Continue reading Twin Star Exorcists Episode 5

Spring Overview

With 13 shows that I am actively watching (and a few others I'm kind of trying to catch bits and pieces of) I figure the end of the week is a good time to reflect on where each show is sitting. I Must Keep Watching In honesty, there isn't a lot happening this season that … Continue reading Spring Overview
