Review: For a final episode of a slice of life/post-apocalyptic anime this episode this episode of Girls' Last Tour hits all the right notes. First we look back at the journey the girls have taken courtesy of their catalogue of photos that they have taken since receiving the camera. Also, throw in the most overt … Continue reading Girls’ Last Tour Episode 12: Parting At The End of the World
Review: Girls' Last Tour continues to avoid the trap of exposition dumps as it doesn't explain in detail how the world the girls are exploring came to be. Instead, we continue to be immersed in the world, gaining some insights as we go along and being left with many questions to ponder. It helps that … Continue reading Girls’ Last Tour Episode 10: Not Answers But Insight
Review: Girls' Last Tour continues to probe at why people are the way they are, what our purpose is, and what it even means to be alive. That said, this isn't the get a simple moral at the end of the episode kind of thing given the themes of this show are intrinsically woven in … Continue reading Girls’ Last Tour Episode 9: Asking the Hard Questions
Review: This week we get three short stories in the episode where the girls first visit a grave yard of sorts and start thinking about what people have left behind. Yuuri, as usual, has some interesting insights which she then contradicts with her next breath, but she's still amusing and thought provoking. I also like … Continue reading Girls’ Last Tour Episode 8: What Is Left Behind?
Review: It is always a bit of a risk having such a small cast but Girls' Last Tour has managed to craft two characters that despite their moe like appearances really give the audience plenty to like and to relate to throughout their travels. Their contrasting views on a number of things lend themselves to … Continue reading Girls’ Last Tour Episode 7: Two Types of People
Review: The girls encounter another person in this episode, just when they need some help because their vehicle has broken down. Chito tries very hard to repair it but unfortunately she lacks the parts they need and Yuuri's solution is less than helpful. And yet, you can't help but feel that maybe she has a … Continue reading Girls’ Last Tour Episode 6: Look! There’s a Person/Plane
Review: Normally I would be the first to describe something like Girls' Last Tour as dull. The plot does not exist other than two girls travelling around seemingly deserted world occasionally looking for food but mostly without any kind of direction. The two characters, while charming, aren't anything particularly note worthy. Even the setting, post … Continue reading Girls’ Last Tour Episode 5: Beauty in Simplicity
Review: The low key entertainment continues this episode with the girls continuing their journey to the bright building. As a diversion they have the camera they received last episode to play with and so they begin to look a little bit more like tourists. However, survival is never far from their minds as the consider … Continue reading Girls’ Last Tour Episode 4: Is This A God?
Review Episode 2: I'm just going to start by saying Yuuri should be glad Chito doesn't carry a gun because given Yuuri tossed her book on the fire... immediately after Chito had explained how important books were... Well, our character count could have dropped from two to one if this were a different kind of … Continue reading Girls’ Last Tour Episodes 2 + 3: Can We Eat That?
Okay, I kind of decided to give HiDive a go given it has a couple of series from last season I want to watch and this season it picked up a few titles I wanted to try. Not sure if I'm keeping the subscription long term but we'll see how it goes. Overview: Civilization is … Continue reading Girls’ Last Tour Episode 1: Deceptively Charming
