Things are really beginning to take shape now that a new story line was added this episode. I thought this episode may be a much needed extra story so that we had more than two teams against each other. Ryouu was starting to have a monopoly and it would have been good to have multiple … Continue reading Doreiku ep 4 – The Appearance of Ryouu Sama!
There is no English name listed for this show on my anime list but the Japanese title (Layton Mystery Tanteisha: Katri no Nazotoki File) roughly translates to "Layton Detective Agency - Katrielle's Mystery Files" but I don't like that so much so Laytons Mystery Journey it is! It sounds like the game too. In the … Continue reading Laytons Mystery Journey ep 1 – The Haunted House Case
I'm getting a lot of smash vibes from this show even though this show is nothing like a fighting game. But it's because of the story of the subspace emissary. The subspace emissary was a story mode of smash brothers where all the characters would start in their own individual area, and then slowly meet … Continue reading Doreiku ep 3 – Super Smash Bros for Slavery
Some of the people in this show are just apologetically dick heads and I sort of find that interesting. It's scary to see what terrible people can do to others and how messed up some people can be. This episode was about a girl who loved a guy in a host club, The host was … Continue reading Dorei-Ku episode two – Scumbags
So the finale of the arc is here at last and everything is coming to a close! So I can now conclude my opinions of liar game once and for all, but how was this episode? Stationary Russian roulette sounds stupid but it's way more interesting once it's explained. There is a roulette with 4 … Continue reading Liar Game S2 EP 4 – The Conclusion Of Everything!
I really loved this episode of the show, I think it's incredibly messed up and unethical which is what makes it interesting to me. This show is about a world on the cusp of a terrifying technology and I'm interested to see how this works in the "real" world with all the different people who … Continue reading Dorei-ku The Animation Ep 1 – The Most Terrifying Technology
In the last episode review I made some predictions about how the game would take place and I was fairly happy with my predictions all things considered, and everything that I made that was wrong was oddly convenient and/or stupid. The first thing was, the deck is changed every time! If I knew this everything … Continue reading Liar Game S2 EP 3 – The Conclusion of 17 Poker!
At the end of the last episode they said that their was a twist which was a trap that fell into a game and I said that wouldn't really be possible. But that's because I didn't know that the LGT took the money when it came to a draw. Obviously if both players know what … Continue reading Liar Game S2 Ep2 – The Start of 17 Poker!
I thought that I might review the next arc in one whole post, but then episode one turned out to be one hour long! So I don't want to write what will probably be 2.5 hours of watch time into one post! This is the first episode I'm watching without reading the same thing in … Continue reading Liar Game Live Action S2 ep 1 – 1 Hour Long Pilot!
I didn't think the producers could really mess this show up very much, because I think the strange charm of the story could work. But they messed it all up again! First of all they messed up the easiest thing which was the setting. Instead of giving us a normal airport like the one in … Continue reading Liar Game Live Action ep 9 – Start of the Contraband Game
Yeah I'm dropping this show because it looks like not a lot is going to happen. This episode had a lot of wasted time and not a lot going on to make me want to continue. The good parts of the episode was the set up in the relationship between the main character and the … Continue reading DARLING in the FRANXX ep 2 – Let This Long Road To Madness End!
It was always a given that I was going to talk about Darling in the FranXX at some point so why not start now despite it not being finighed? At the current rate that I'm releasing episode reviews at the season will be over by the time I've finished it anyway! I probably won't make … Continue reading DARLING in the FRANXX ep 1 – Let This Long Road to Madness Begin
Thanks again to magicconnan14 for recommending this show by not recommending it but saying that he would recommend it if he wasn't worried about what I would think. And with that mouthful of a sentence let's talk about the show. I'm glad I'm reviewing this show the day after I talked about a bad implementation … Continue reading Golden Kamuy ep 1 – The Best CGI has to offer
Hey we're back with the first episode two review of this anime season! I thought with at least trying to review an episode a day I would be able too cover this quicker but my brain had other plans! Due to scheduling two new episodes probably would have appeared between my ep 1 and 2 … Continue reading Megalo Box ep 2 – Pro Punching
I had expected the decision to start episode reviewing would lead to many rants about how terrible seasonal anime is, getting to the grips of everything I hate in these modern shows. But instead I've been pleasantly surprised, and today is no exception! This show looks like a kids show and from the advertising stupid. … Continue reading Hisone To Maso-tan ep 1 – I Love Airplane Dragons!
Thanks again to Zainou for recommending this show for me. It's a great show and you can jump on straight away here without seeing the million other episodes of the show! I think the only way I see myself not liking the show is that the episodes all look fairly similar, I wouldn't be so … Continue reading Lupin III Part 5 Ep 1 – The Chase Is On!
The thanks for this post goes to Zainou who recommended I watch season 1 of the new Lupin season. Despite the fact that there are many, many episodes to this series it's all very episodic so he recommended I watch ep 1 of 2015 or three other films, one of which I couldn't find and the … Continue reading Lupin The Third 2015 Ep 1 – A Thrilling Fight For The Crown!
It's no secret that I don't like seasonal anime, however it seems ridiculous to state that without justifying it in posts like these. And through doing this I might just prove myself wrong so there's that as well! First impressions are huge when I watch a show. Honestly being made by A-1 Pictures and having … Continue reading It’s Difficult to Love an Otaku ep 1 – It’s Difficult to Love This Show
Something that makes my job a whole lot easier as an episode reviewer is the recap episode, to see everything that was shown in the recap just read all of the previous posts! I actually really dislike recap episodes and despite it being edited interestingly and uniquely it was still a recap episode and really … Continue reading Neon Genesis Evangelion – Weaving a Story 
We open with a shot of Misato’s back story where her father saves her life by putting her inside a massive capsule before an angel explodes killing him. Misato is still contemplating this moment as Shinji and his friends are taking shelter from the rain. It really shows the difference in personality when the characters … Continue reading Neon Genesis Evangelion – The Value Of Miricles / She said, ‘Don’t make others suffer for your personal hatred’ 
The Final Hunt 25/10/17 3:48 PM The sun sets on Sotoba village and I felt an immense worry for what would happen, since the vampires are now safer. This happens as soon as Seishin runs away so Sunako immediately gets up and starts looking around, which was sad in my opinion. I thought it would … Continue reading Shiki – The Final Hunt 
Twenty First Slaughter – 25/10/17 2:46 PM As far as I’m concerned this may as well have been the last episode since it seemed to tie up every loose end very nicely. The few points that were left hanging can easily be explained or is best left to interpretation in my opinion. So this will … Continue reading Shiki – Slaughter 
Twenteith Mourning – 25/10/17 1:14 PM At the start of the episode I found myself thinking that at the shows current pace the show would need to do a whole lot of murdering to resolve the plot. And it certainly didn’t disappoint. In fact the episode starts with a vampire’s eyes exploding due to exposure … Continue reading Shiki – Mourning 
Nineteenth Coffin - 23/10/17 6:51 PM The episode opens where we left off at Chizuru’s death. Toshio uses this moment to rally the villagers and cause them to go on a hunt for the vampires. I see people rooting for the Shiki or calling the humans equaly bad but this is obviously incorrect. The vampires … Continue reading Shiki – Coffin 
Eighteenth Night - 23/10/17 12:44 PM I think this episode was the best yet because everything I wanted to happen from the start took place here, and it was great. But I’m getting ahead of myself; the introduction was still interesting for its own reasons even if it didn’t have the pay off at the … Continue reading Shiki – Night 
Seventeenth Killing Spirit - 23/10/17 11:37 AM This episode didn’t reveal the plan I wanted to see, I sure do hope the plan involved Toshio getting bitten and becoming subservient to the vampires though, because it happened. At the start of the episode Toshio said the plan was to wait until it looked like the … Continue reading Shiki – Killing Spirit 
Sixteenth Skull - 23/10/17 10:04 AM This episode was great, not only because my pre-determined wants happened but because they happened in interesting ways which are promising for the future and side character involved heavily involved with the plot yet not given much attention. Sunako, the child vampire, was one of these people in particular … Continue reading Shiki – Skull 
Fifteenth Deceit - 22/10/17 9:28 PM Tohru puts flowers out in front of Yuuki’s grave to mourn his death, this doesn’t compensate for his actions but is a sad touch to the show, even if the moment is wasted in a confusing way at the end of the episode. After Toshio murdering the Shiki Seishin … Continue reading Shiki – Deceit 
Fourteenth Death – 22/10/17 8:31 PM Last episode really was a tragedy and this episode needed to accomplish a lot to fix it. I wanted more characters I knew in situations I could enjoy, a faster paced story with more advancement of the plot and just things that were actually interesting, that last one is … Continue reading Shiki – Death 
Thirteenth Tragedy – 22/10/17 7:32 PM This episode was the worst episode so far and probably the only episode of Shiki I would rate a score of 5 or less. Essentially everything which happened was something we either knew already or didn’t care about, and it’s because of the emotional value the show tried to … Continue reading Shiki – Tragedy 
Twelfth Decay – 21/10/17 9:37 PM I’m writing this the day after I watched the episode so if this is the worst one that explains it. I mentioned to my mum today that I was watching a show about vampires and she was very concerned about it having violence against women. Not against everyone, just … Continue reading Shiki – Decay 
Eleventh Slaughter - 21/10/17 8:30 PM Most episodes of Shiki are enjoyable to watch and just think about even if they only really focussed on one thing in particular. What made this episode so interesting was the fact that they seemingly introduced one character, explained what her purpose and ideas were, have the rest of … Continue reading Shiki – Slaughter 
Tenth Mourning – 19/10/17 8:18 PM There was something about this episode which made the vampires feel a whole lot less villainous than they used to be and that’s done through showing us the story from their perspective, they’re really evil but I’ve ended up liking some of the vampires, which is something that I … Continue reading Shiki – Mourning 
Ninth Coffin – 19/10/17 7:25 PM A huge issue which detracts from this show is its slow pacing and this puts many people off and makes them either drop or put it on hold. To be honest I’d much rather the show be faster paced but there’s a lot of good things the show has … Continue reading Shiki – Coffin 
Eighth Night – 19/10/17 5:39 PM After the previous thrilling episode where everything started coming together to form a narrative more focussed on the threats instead of reactions to deaths I wanted this momentum to continue into the next episode and well, this sort of happened. Whilst the characters made progressions to come to the … Continue reading Shiki – Night 
Seventh Killing Spirit – 18/10/17 8:17 This show is getting a whole lot better and I really love the direction the series is headed. It’s not going to be scary but it’s going to be really interesting and entertaining anyway. Doing the three episode rule showed me that the series would be something I’d like … Continue reading Shiki – Killing Spirit 
Sixth Skull – 18/10/17 7:19 PM Wow I really loved this episode because everything I’ve been saying and re-iterating finally seems to be happening. Let’s talk about why this episode was really exciting to watch! We opened with a shot of Megumi retrieving her ripped post card from Yuuki and it’s sad because it seems … Continue reading Shiki – Skull 
Fifth Deceit – 18/10/17 4:54 PM After scheduling the previous five posts earlier today I noticed that I’d made a few mistakes whilst watching the previous episodes. The first mistake was the conditions I was watching the show in, either broad daylight or with the lights on too much. It’s not as spooky this way, … Continue reading Shiki – Deceit 
Fourth Death – 18/10/17 9:55 AM Before every episode I talk about what I want to happen in the episode. This time I actually wanted to be made to care about the bad guys and what they do, care more about the characters already introduced and most importantly I wanted the show to build up … Continue reading Shiki – Fourth Death 
Third Tragedy – 8:22 AM 18/10/17 I stayed very calm and normal throughout this episode, this show seems pretty calm really with all the deaths only being seemingly natural. Before watching I wanted to see new plot points occur which shed light on the mystery, the issue was from the previous episode was that the … Continue reading Shiki – Third Tragedy 
Second Decay – 17/10/17 9:03 PM Before watching I set up some guidelines I didn’t want to see in the video. I didn’t want them to pay attention to the previous death because it’s horror and we suspect that kind of thing, I also didn’t want to see a bunch of police on the scene … Continue reading Shiki – Second Decay 
First Blood – 17/10/17 7:40 PM Before watching the episode I had a few points in my head to look out for, the first being jump scares. If there were any, and this is true for a lot of early episodes I would give up this project and change to something else, jump scares aren’t … Continue reading Shiki – First Blood 
The rehabilitation facility of Evil or Live is completely stupid. Not that I hated the episode but so much social commentary about internet addiction was lost through making the main character correct in his analysis, the idea that the rehabilitation facility is hell. Believe it or not facilities to treat and cure internet addiction are … Continue reading Evil or Live, The Dustbin For Children Which Is Also A Dustbin
When I got the reader suggestion to review ep 1 and ep 6 of this anime I was pretty concerned and for fairly valid reasons, from hearing minor things from people I was under the impression that super sonico was hentai. But I guess I was wrong and I’m here to review the episode. The … Continue reading Super Sonico the animation episode 1
The episode starts with a childish misunderstanding that’s pretty stupid. Apparently the female lead character expects the main character to remember the dumb promise they made when they were kids. Sure it’s a promise but it’s annoying to see it touched upon when the character really shouldn’t remember it either. So she therefore leaves the … Continue reading Elfen Lied Episode 3 Review
The episode is mostly filled with a tense scene where Nyu is hunted down. It’s not particularly brilliant but it’s interspersed in between scenes of the other characters, making it interesting. The main character then gets injured and ends up in hospital. When he gets back he finds that Nyu is back at home in … Continue reading Elfen Lied Episode 2 Review
This anime was the first series that I’ve watched specifically to write about it and specifically because a reader asked me too. Due to this I made sure to go in unspoilt without knowing anything to make my review more interesting. I haven’t looked into this series any more than watching the first episode just … Continue reading KINMOZA! Episode 1 Review
I wasn’t really entirely sure what to think about this episode. Firstly it introduced the student council president, whom I don’t really like that much, and then set up a problem of a missing cat. A missing cat! It’s basically the most boring thing you could choose to focus an episode on. That being said … Continue reading Chuunibyou Episode 2 Review
Chunibyo episode one is about a guy who has an embarrassing past, trying to be normal yet being prevented by a girl who is still into all the crazy stuff that he was into. He calls this idea of childish grandiose chunibyo and it sounds terrible. It felt quite generic but it was still entertaining. … Continue reading Chuunibyou Episode 1 Review
This episode was highly entertaining for me to watch and felt fun and cool yet also ominous. This was done through the dark sky and mean nature of the guards juxtaposed with the fairly simple and comedic story that the characters follow. Joey wishes to join yugi so that he can win money to pay … Continue reading Yugioh Episode 3 Review
Joey still sucks at yugioh so yugi decides to help him out by looking at his cards, they’re terrible. Yugioh once again teaches its fans about the important mechanics of the game by saying that having a balanced deck is important. Yugi then gets his grandad to teach Joey about how to improve but it’s … Continue reading Yugioh Episode 2 Review
The episode starts with Yugi and Joey having a game of yugioh to introduce us to the type of series it is, whilst establishing some of the major rules they hint at a super rare card that only Yugi’s grandpa owns. Unfortunately for these guys a rich evil guy by the name of Seto Kaiba … Continue reading Yugioh Episode 1 Review
This post is coming as a reaction and review to episode 2 and 3 of Boku No Academia Season 2 and the high stakes, engrossing race that took place during the time. Whilst I enjoyed the two episodes and found them pretty engrossing and interesting on the most part there was this part that annoyed … Continue reading The Thing That Boku No Hero Academia Forgot! (Eps 2 and 3 of season 2)
