Girls’ Last Tour Episode 11: Painting a Grim Picture of the Past

Review: While the whole time we've traveled with Chito and Yuuri we've been given hints about the society that was once upon a time, this episode is the most blatant yet at suggesting that the old society literally self-destructed through war and weapons. While it isn't guaranteed that war wiped out most people, the obvious … Continue reading Girls’ Last Tour Episode 11: Painting a Grim Picture of the Past

Angel Beats Series Review: What Do You Live For?

Overview: Another anime I cannot believe I haven't already reviewed given how many times I've used this one as an example. I discussed this in anime using product placement and it is on at least four of my top 5 lists including top 5 anime that made me cry and top 5 anime from P.A. … Continue reading Angel Beats Series Review: What Do You Live For?

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

Chain Chronicle – The Light of Haecceitas Episode 12

Review: Hey, after 12 episodes I finally spelt the name right on the first go instead of the fifth. There's an achievement. Anyway, this ends pretty much exactly the way you would expect given the story so far. It's never done more than be a standard sword and sorcery fantasy and the ending, in all … Continue reading Chain Chronicle – The Light of Haecceitas Episode 12

Chain Chronicle – The Light of Haecceitas Episode 11

Review: This is all pretty stock standard final battle material now. Characters who have been at odds or set up as opposites face each other and there are a lot of extras getting knocked off (not that it matters given the black king seems to be able to auto generate soldiers at will). It isn't … Continue reading Chain Chronicle – The Light of Haecceitas Episode 11

Chain Chronicle – The Light of Haecceitas Episode 8

Review: There was a moment early in this episode where I realised they'd just thrown us into the middle of a battle and we didn't know who was fighting or which side they were on. And then I realised that of course we knew who the bad guys are, they are all in black. This … Continue reading Chain Chronicle – The Light of Haecceitas Episode 8

Chain Chronicle: The Light of Haecceitas

Review: It really feels like other than Shuza, nobody in this world had ever considered any other way of fighting the black king other than Yuri. With Yuri getting taken over the sorcerers, the holy queen, and even Yuri's friends are all kind of at odds and not really knowing what to do. Shuza on … Continue reading Chain Chronicle: The Light of Haecceitas

Chain Chronicles: The Light of Haecceitas Episode 6

Review: One of my pet hates when watching anime is how easily characters are brainwashed or manipulated, particularly during critical moments. With that said, as Chain Chronicles completes it's 'come to the dark-side' moment I'm actually impressed that for once the villains (and various hallucinations) gave a fairly concrete argument as to why the hero … Continue reading Chain Chronicles: The Light of Haecceitas Episode 6

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

Chain Chronicle – The Light of Haecceitas Episodes 2 + 3

Review Episode 2: Chain Chronicle picked up directly where we left off with Yuri and Aram defeating the soldiers who were attacking the village. After Aram faints and then wakes up, Yuri gives him a talking to and attempts to recruit him into his volunteer army which by the end of the episode he's decided … Continue reading Chain Chronicle – The Light of Haecceitas Episodes 2 + 3
