Up Close with Yuki Soleil

The Price of Smiles Episode 6 Yuuki

With The Price of Smiles coming to a close, it seemed like a good opportunity to take a look at some of the characters from the anime. Unfortunately, on thinking it through, most of the characters just don't get enough screen time, so I'll be looking at one of the main characters, Yuki.

Bringing Back Smiles Through Over-Simplification

The Price of Smiles Episode 12 Review - Well we have come to the end and I can say with confidence at least that this anime concludes its story. The fact that it does so through over-simplifying the situation in the extreme and relies on cute girls smiling to sell the solution is kind of a point against it, but at least we aren't left hanging for a sequel that probably would never have happened.

Vampire Knight Guilty Series Review: The Dark Side of Obsession

Overview: On Wednesday I reviewed season 1 of Vampire Knight and now I'm finishing off the show with a review of season 2.

School-Live Epiosdes 5 + 6

Review: Okay, I didn't actually stop between these episodes and I think it is going to get harder for me to stop because I'm really enjoying this story, hence the lack of images to populate the post. These two episodes conclude the story of how Miki joined the School Living club and how they revealed … Continue reading School-Live Epiosdes 5 + 6

Joker Game Episode 12

Review: I don't know how this last episode could have annoyed me more. While I've found most of the series pleasant enough without being particularly good or bad, this episode left an extreme sour taste in my mouth. Firstly because they finally try to humanize one of the spies (and let's be honest - too … Continue reading Joker Game Episode 12

Joker Game Episode 11

Review: I probably won't be able to explain why, but I quite enjoyed this episode. Possibly because there was no mystery to solve this week and no overly clever twist? With one episode remaining, while I haven't disliked Joker Game, the show has kind of just plodded along. Other than Yuki, I don't remember a … Continue reading Joker Game Episode 11
