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
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!
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
Strike Witches (EP1-3) I've gone deep this time. I mean, let's be honest, the niche for girls with planes for legs is pretty slim. So, it's no surprise Strike Witches has a cult following. To be honest, I never understand the: "Girls become inanimate objects" meta in anime. Shows like Upotte!!, Kantai Collection: KanColle, and even Girls und Panzer never … Continue reading Sunday’s Segment: Strike Witches, Tsuritama, Demon Lord (#5)(16-09-18)
Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 Took Me A Few Days To Get Through... After watching the first three episodes, I knew I was going to be in for a ride. So, I decided to space it out, to allow me time to think between episodes, and between all the emotional moments and baggage. Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 is … Continue reading Tokyo Magnitude 8.0: Strength in Family and Friends
A Short Introduction Welcome to the first ever Sunday Segment, in which I talk about anime, film, games, the community, and pretty much anything else. I want a space where I'm able to discuss things in a less-structured way than my usual posts. A space that is separate of them, where I can write in … Continue reading Sunday’s Segment: Harukana, Happy Sugar Life, Digibro (#1)(29-07-18)
I enjoyed Attack on Titan's first season. In fact, I suspect like many of us, it was one of the first anime shows I watched. Then, last year came along the long-awaited, and long wailed after, Season 2. It wasn't for me. The things I liked in the First seemed to have vanished in the … Continue reading Attack on Titan Season 3 – It’s Better Already
A number of months ago I said I wasn't going to be looking at first episodes, or writing about single episodes at any length, However, Island has disrupted that train of thought with a massive fist being slammed onto my desk. This is because Island had one of the worst first episodes I've seen since … Continue reading Island: A Demonstration in Terrible First Episodes
