No Guns Life Unlike the Summer season, I haven't found that much interest in the shows that are airing this Fall. Beastars doesn't get me going in the same ways as it does other people, and I haven't watched many of the prequels to currently airing sequels. However, one that shines through is No Guns … Continue reading Sunday’s Segment: No Guns Life, Midsommar, SAO (#6)
It's not often I come across an anime which makes me feel anything more than entertained, amused, happy. Chobits does all those things, and more. It forces me to examine ideals, things that I had already predetermined. It's an anime of two parts: a happy-go-lucky ride of lighthearted comedy, and a tumultuous expose on how … Continue reading Exploring Chobits: Love, AI, Comedy
From Sounan Desu ka's (Are You Lost?) opening episode, it's easy to recognise it as one of Summer's more niche anime, running at only twelve minutes, and with a subject matter that is a little removed from usual, all considering. So, after reading MAL's brief synopsis at the start of the season, it seemed to … Continue reading Sounan Desu ka? – Anime Is Not Lost
It's not often I come across something so abhorrent I want to erase it from my brain in an instant. However, Netflix's anime documentary Enter the Anime makes me want to do just that and more. In fact, it is so terrible I cannot understand why it was ever released on the platform - never … Continue reading Enter the Anime Review: Netflix’s Awful ‘Documentary’
Domestic Girlfriend (Domestic na Kanojo) is one of Winter 2018/19’s most controversial shows, and unlike Shield Hero, maybe it deserves its reputation. Its content certainly isn’t suitable for everyone. At times, even I was uncomfortable, and I spent an entire day last year watching Koi Kaze… Domestic Girlfriend definitely isn’t the easiest show to watch, by … Continue reading Domestic Girlfriend Analysis: It’s All Fine!
I've played all Life is Strange has to offer. I love it. It was unlike any other narrative experience I'd had previously. It took the idea of 'choices matter' and ran with it, they don't just matter - they are the game. I felt the same wonder during the First Episode of Life is Strange … Continue reading Life is Strange 2: Episode 2 Review – What Happened?
I have played thousands of hours of Battlefield. Somehow my first experience with the franchise was through probably its most revered game, Battlefield 2. Something which unnerves me slightly, considering I'm only twenty-two now... Since then, I've played every game in varying amounts. My favourite being the bluesy tones of Battlefield 3. Many an hour … Continue reading Battlefield V: TTK and The Issue of Community Influence
Conception, a Fall/Autumn 2018 anime... that's fallen below standard in just about every way. Now, for the purposes of this post, I partook in what I can only describe as a good hour and a half of self-flagellation - why? Because this is what it takes, and I though Conception's reception might be the product … Continue reading Conception: Completely Pointless Anime
Goblin Slayer is Just One of Those Shows... One of those shows that stirs up the pot, gets in nice and hot, bubbling. I mean, surely that entices everyone, right? I don't have a problem with Goblin Slayer - I'm not saying it's a brilliant show by any stretch of the imagination, but I certainly … Continue reading On Goblin Slayer and Morality: It’s Fine?
Bunny Girl Senpai, or it's awfully long Japanese title... Seishun Buta Yarou wa Bunny Girl Senpai no Yume wo Minai Is one of - if not the - best shows of the Fall/Autumn 2018 anime season. Its studio Cloverworks is more or less new, splitting from its parent studio of A1-Pictures earlier this year. Cloverworks … Continue reading Bunny Girl Senpai: Characters and the Pain of Reality
