Phantom in the Twilight Episode 5: Love or Life?

Phantom in the Twilight Episode 5

Alright, I might have to stop making fun of Ton given this episode she actually really stepped up to the plate as the protagonist in this story, and all in all this episode of Phantom in the Twilight was pretty well done. So the plot involving Ton's kidnapped friend gets about two minutes of screen … Continue reading Phantom in the Twilight Episode 5: Love or Life?

Phantom in the Twilight Episode 4: My Friend Was Taken As A Hostage, And I Don’t Seem To Care

Phantom of the Twilight Episode 4

Remind me to not rely on Ton if I'm ever kidnapped. She's really not at all focused on saving her friend. That little bit of plot insanity aside though, Phantom in the Twilight is actually shaping up to be a pretty decent show this season. As main heroines go, Ton is kind of problematic on … Continue reading Phantom in the Twilight Episode 4: My Friend Was Taken As A Hostage, And I Don’t Seem To Care

Devils’ Line Series Review: Get Ready For Dark – And I Am Talking About The Colour Palette Not The Story

An anime that started with a fairly poor first episode and pretty much never got any better, Devils' Line was one of my bigger disappointments to come out of the Spring 2018 season. Review: I would really like to start this review with an overview of the story, but unfortunately, I'm not sure there really … Continue reading Devils’ Line Series Review: Get Ready For Dark – And I Am Talking About The Colour Palette Not The Story

Phantom in the Twilight Episode 3: Two Wolves Meet Under a Ferris Wheel

As silly as some aspects of this show are, I can't help but have fun while watching it. While I strongly suspect that when they explain the villain's motives it will probably be a disappointment, Phantom in the Twilight has so far been enjoyable enough to watch, even though it isn't great. Some spoilers below, … Continue reading Phantom in the Twilight Episode 3: Two Wolves Meet Under a Ferris Wheel

Phantom in the Twilight Episode 2: Old School Vampire Alert

I was pleasantly surprised that episode two of this was reasonably decent given the first episode's shortcomings. The focus is very much on Vlad but the other characters definitely get a little bit of a look in as this supernatural story continues. It has been awhile since vampires actually had issues with garlic, crosses, running … Continue reading Phantom in the Twilight Episode 2: Old School Vampire Alert

Devils’ Line Episode 12: The True Tragedy Is That The Story Might Continue

And this series slowly pulls into its final station and there it will stay. I'm not sure what kind of ending that was but I know I'm not planning on watching it again to find out. I'll save the rant for the series review. Wow, this is finally done. And while the squad is disbanded … Continue reading Devils’ Line Episode 12: The True Tragedy Is That The Story Might Continue

Devils’ Line Episode 11: Oh No – It’s A Trap

Turns out everyone is a double agent, or maybe a triple agent, who knows. And now they've walked into a trap. Terrible really. You walk into a building where there are dead homeless people and you just keep proceeding with your mission. Later, you act all shocked that someone set you up. Yep, that is … Continue reading Devils’ Line Episode 11: Oh No – It’s A Trap

Devils’ Line Episode 10: Disjointed

This week we get the continuation of Anzai's showdown with the professor on the train, a training sequence, some chat about lost memories and the ongoing conspiracy, a romance sequence, and then a fire. Not really sure which part of that I was supposed to pay attention to. Devils' Line continues to be a bit … Continue reading Devils’ Line Episode 10: Disjointed

Devils’ Line Episode 9: Vigilante ‘Justice’

And we're back to caring about the fact that people are protesting about the existence of Devils. This anime doesn't really know how to build a consistent tone at all. This episode is a little bit of a mixed bag. We get some more information about Lee and a flash-back to his 'escape' but not … Continue reading Devils’ Line Episode 9: Vigilante ‘Justice’
