Tuesday’s Top 5: Anime Vampires

This week I'm listing my top 5 favourite anime vampires (which I can't actually believe I hadn't already done so here we go). This is a nice simple list and really it is just based on how much I like the character rather than any particular vampiric traits, though I will admit I prefer vampires … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Anime Vampires

Sengoku Night Blood Episode 9: No Bad Guys Here

Review: This story is determined to only make the yakuma actually bad because everytime we have one of these war lords looking all scary and intimidating (and actually being intimidating given our heroine has been kidnapped, locked in a shed, and - by our most recent contender - threatened with death if she tries to … Continue reading Sengoku Night Blood Episode 9: No Bad Guys Here

Sengoku Night Blood Episode 4: Heroine Gets a Fever,There’s An Original Development

Review: I didn't actually dislike this episode, but I think it highlights the fact that this show is unashamed of what it is and it isn't trying to reach beyond that. Every move and every singe character is at this point predictable. Even the two characters who act like they hate each other but actually … Continue reading Sengoku Night Blood Episode 4: Heroine Gets a Fever,There’s An Original Development

UQ Holder Episode 4: Immortal but not Unstoppable

Review: Seems like we're finally getting to some fun with this show. The exam is over and Tota and Kuromaru are sent on their very first mission. Though Evangeline just had to raise a death flag for them (even though we know they aren't serious given they are firstly, immortal and secondly, the main characters). … Continue reading UQ Holder Episode 4: Immortal but not Unstoppable

Sengoku Night Blood Episode 3: Sake, Herbs, Bees and an Attack

Review: If the goal here is to walk through a loosely based on actual history historical setting where the cast have been replaced by pretty boy vampires and werewolves than this episode accomplishes its goal wonderfully. If there was an intention of actually helping us learn anything about these characters (other than the name of … Continue reading Sengoku Night Blood Episode 3: Sake, Herbs, Bees and an Attack

Sengoku Night Blood Episode 2: My Teenage Self Would Have Loved This

Review: I really think that if this had come out (and I'd had the means to watch it) when I was fourteen or fifteen, I'd have been in love with it. However, as I am not a teenager (and haven't been for well over a decade) and I've watched a lot of anime at this … Continue reading Sengoku Night Blood Episode 2: My Teenage Self Would Have Loved This
