Izetta: The Last Witch Episode 12

Review: I'll give Izetta this, it at least resolves. It may be rushed, the final villain nonsensical, and the final battle may be completely boring to watch but I can't argue that the story did not finish. I'm annoyed that they seemed unable to commit to Izetta actually sacrificing herself. I'm also annoyed that essentially … Continue reading Izetta: The Last Witch Episode 12

Izetta: The Last Witch Episode 10

Review: Well, they didn't commit to actually having Izetta stay captured by the enemy but at least she didn't get out of last week's predicament unharmed (because that would have pushed it way too far). Unconscious for a period of time and then without the use of her legs (for reasons unexplained), Izetta's condition pushes … Continue reading Izetta: The Last Witch Episode 10

Mobile Suit Gundam 00 Season 1 Series Review

Izetta: The Last Witch Episode 9

Review: Finally a second witch shows up and finally Izetta gets an actual taste of defeat. It would be nice if this meant that some of her naivet√© will now wear off and she will actually deal with the reality of being pretty much the only line of defence for a country at war. Of … Continue reading Izetta: The Last Witch Episode 9

Iron Blooded Orphans Episode 32

Review: Just letting you know, I am about to name characters and major events from this episode. If you count that as spoiler than please know this was a tragic episode to watch (in the best sense of the word) and I hope you enjoy it.     For everyone still with me... It was … Continue reading Iron Blooded Orphans Episode 32

Izetta: The Last Witch Episode 8

Review: Well, at least someone in Izetta remembered that Jonas died and for half-a-moment that became an actual significant plot point and then we move on because now we have to create a sympathetic Germanian character before knocking him off (sorry, should have prefaced that with a spoiler alert but if you've been watching the … Continue reading Izetta: The Last Witch Episode 8

Iron Blooded Orphans Episode 31

Reivew: I know I've been predicting death for the cast of Iron Blooded Orphans for awhile now, but it is just as true this week. This is the slow motion fall toward an inevitable end (and not just because it's part of the Gundam series). It doesn't seem possible we could get through the next … Continue reading Iron Blooded Orphans Episode 31

Izetta: The Last Witch Episode 6

Review (spoiler heavy for the episode - don't read if you haven't watched yet): I said on my Twitter feed at the 30 second mark of Izetta that I really wanted Jonas to get shot. Here's the problem with Izetta as a show. It started out serious and did that just fine for a few … Continue reading Izetta: The Last Witch Episode 6

Bungo Stray Dogs Episode 17

Review: We have transitioned back to the present but this actually wasn't such a bad thing. Given at the end of the last season they had already introduced the Guild they didn't waste any time with introductions and just kind of plunged us straight into a three way war. It's amazing how much more tolerable … Continue reading Bungo Stray Dogs Episode 17

Izetta: The Last Witch Episode 4

Review: I asked for an explanation of how magic worked in this show and we more or less got it and that takes away any worries about inconsistency in Izetta's powers during the tank fight. We also see Fine respond to her father's death, the enemy dealing with the fall out of losing the battle, … Continue reading Izetta: The Last Witch Episode 4
