Winter 2017 Final List

As the title says, this is my final list for the Winter 2017 season. This was not an amazing season of anime for me. Lots of rom-coms and slice of life shows that just didn't do much for me (though I've enjoyed shows in both of these genres previously), a few sequels that didn't manage … Continue reading Winter 2017 Final List

When Sorey follows Alisha to the human city of Lady Lake he pulls a sword out of rock and becomes a Shepherd and has to try to purify malevolence (and save the world or whatever). … Continue reading Tales of Zestiria the X Series Review

Summer 2016 Week 13

This is my last overview for Summer 2016. I know some shows still haven't finished but next week I'll be posting my first thoughts on the Autumn season shows as they start rolling out (though from the looks of Crunchyroll and AnimeLab I may be a little short of shows this season - I say … Continue reading Summer 2016 Week 13

Tales of Zestiria the X Episode 12

Alishia is still ridiculously idealistic and it seems that even the writers realised that it was time for her to face the consequences of that. And … Continue reading Tales of Zestiria the X Episode 11

Let's see what they can deliver in their final episodes. Meanwhile, most of the shows I've been enjoying throughout this season delivered okay but not awesome … Continue reading Summer 2016 Week 10

Tales of Zestiria the X Episode 8

Review: And then we got another dragon fight? Okay, we introduced some new characters and realised that Sorey is completely idealistic and they set up some new dark thing for our characters to confront next week but mostly this episode has us watching a dragon fly around and various characters discussing whether it should (or … Continue reading Tales of Zestiria the X Episode 8
