Chronos Ruler Episode 13: At Last The End

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

Chronos Ruler Episode 12: Obvious Symoblism Before A Final Form Reveal

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

Yuri On Ice Series Review

Wait, did I just schedule a Yuri on Ice review for Valentine's Day? Oh, that's right. I definitely did. Overview: Yuri Katsuki is a Japanese figure skater who kind of feels his not-so-glorious career is over when Victor (his idol from Russia) shows up to become his coach. I reviewed this week to week, it … Continue reading Yuri On Ice Series Review

Yuri on Ice Episode 12

Review: A beautiful ending (or non-ending depending on how you choose to take it) to a beautiful character piece. This show has never been perfect and the final episode is no different. If you look you'll find things to criticise and that's fine if that is what you want to do. For me though, I … Continue reading Yuri on Ice Episode 12

Friday’s Feature – Beneath the Squeals What Is Driving Yuri On Ice Fans?

Wow, it's a Yuri on Ice post. How original. By the way if you aren't up to at least episode 10, maybe pass on this for now but come back. Of course, if you've watched episode 11 things have changed again but I'm not touching that until I've had a bit more time to think … Continue reading Friday’s Feature – Beneath the Squeals What Is Driving Yuri On Ice Fans?

Yuri on Ice Episode 10

Review: Normally, in a show like this when we have an episode almost entirely devoted to the characters taking a break from fighting (sport) what we end up with is a shallow filler episode filled with comedic moments that don't really work and some very casual characterisation. Yuri on Ice shows us what an episode … Continue reading Yuri on Ice Episode 10

Yuri on Ice Episode 9

Review (full of spoilers if you haven't watched): There's one thing that all sports anime have in common and its one of the reasons why I've seldom got into them. From a plot point of view, predictability is inevitable. Yuri made it to the Grand Prix (but we kind of knew that had to happen). … Continue reading Yuri on Ice Episode 9

Yuri on Ice Episode 8

Review: While this episode of Yuri on Ice doesn't have quite the overflow of emotion that episode 7 carried with it the story and characters continue to progress. Admittedly, we're once again sitting through introductions to yet new skaters in the Russian competition and then their routines and that eats a lot of the episode. … Continue reading Yuri on Ice Episode 8

Yuri On Ice Episode 7

Review: Episode 7 of Yuri on Ice is the episode I'm going to remember where it stopped being just a fun and interesting watch with some characters I kind of liked and it became a show where I truly respected the characterisation of the protagonist (and by characterisation, I don't mean they finally kissed). Yrui's … Continue reading Yuri On Ice Episode 7
