Friday’s Feature: Is Brand Familiarity Influencing Our Anime Viewing?

Spring bloomed with a whole pile of new anime to watch and as usual, more than a few of these are returning franchises with spin-offs, sequels, and reboots a plenty to be found in the line up (of course there's plenty of new titles as well to be found across the various streaming services). However, … Continue reading Friday’s Feature: Is Brand Familiarity Influencing Our Anime Viewing?


Lostorage Conflated Wixoss Episode 2: There’s Just No Escape

The rules of WIXOSS have never been overly clear in any version of this anime, but as seasons converge they seem to be trying to set a few things down in stone. Again, this episode was heavily focused on prior events but it isn't just walking us through prior seasons. It is genuinely giving us … Continue reading Lostorage Conflated Wixoss Episode 2: There’s Just No Escape

Lostorage Conflated Wixoss First Impressions

A decent enough return for those who like WIXOSS anime. Not a lot of point if you haven't watched the previous season though. What did you think? I'm just going to point out that this franchise continues to just kind of mash words together before adding WIXOSS on the end and expects us to somehow … Continue reading Lostorage Conflated Wixoss First Impressions

Lostorage Incited WIXOSS Series Review

Overview: Well if you've watched the Selector Infected WIXOSS then you already know the basics here even as Lostorage puts a new spin on the game. WIXOSS is a popular card game only some people are chosen to become Selectors which means for them the game has some very real consequences.

Lostorage Incited WIXOSS Episode 12

Review: Okay, they have a second season of this coming so apparently don't expect a neat little bow around anything. That said, the focus for most this season has been Suzuko and Chinatsu and this episode finishes their story quite nicely with Suzuko taking the lead for once and Chinatsu finally supporting her rather than … Continue reading Lostorage Incited WIXOSS Episode 12

Lostorage incited WIXOSS Episode 11

Review: So many shows ¬†are delivering disappointing last and second last episodes but WIXOSS has been an exception to the trend as it refocuses squarely on Chinatsu and Suzuko, which has been the relationship that has really driven the events of this series. I must say that Shou is going to get my vote for … Continue reading Lostorage incited WIXOSS Episode 11

Lostorage Incited WIXOSS Episode 10

Review: While it isn't hard to see the tragedy part of this episode, the comedy (even allowing that we go with an old school definition where characters simply triumph over adversity rather than looking for humour) is kind of missing which is strange given the episode title. What we have instead is some of the … Continue reading Lostorage Incited WIXOSS Episode 10

Lostorage Incited WIXOSS Episode 9

Review: We now have a clear link back to the other installments in the WIXOSS franchise but they've done this in a way that even those with limited familiarity will still be fine to follow the plot. Also, we finally find out what happens when you have all five golden coins. This episode is intense. … Continue reading Lostorage Incited WIXOSS Episode 9

Autumn 2016 Week 9

Week 9 has come and I am getting really excited about the ends of some shows. Flip Flappers because I may eventually find out if there has been a point to anything. WIXOSS because I'd love to see just how much pain they are going to bring for the finale. Izetta because I've liked it … Continue reading Autumn 2016 Week 9

Lostorage Incited WIXOSS Episode 8

Review: This was a really good episode and it felt like we hit a turning point for the series as we head toward the end. That said, I am about to reveal some critical information from the episode so if you haven't watched it yet you may want to go do that first. Really, really … Continue reading Lostorage Incited WIXOSS Episode 8
