Boku Dake ga Inai Machi Episode 6: The culprit!

Show is trying to distract us from the cliffhanger at the end of last week’s episode with this extension of the conversation about Airi’s parents. Also, I have a problem with this entire story sounding like the father was kicked out. If anything, he had all of the reason to leave the mother given the […]

Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo Episode 5: The great goddess of purification…

The “oh my god, what am I doing with my life?” face…don’t you hate it when that happens? This is pretty much me in MMOs…the guy who keeps begging the party to do some harder quests. And I’m the jerk? Again, something I would do…but for such different reasons. I agree! It’s almost like it […]

Marth’s Manga Adventures: Murder Game Edition

Enjoy watching people try to kill each other? Well, have I got the series for you! Doubt (or Rabbit Doubt) This one’s a short one. The premise of the murder game is simple. There is a group of people (the “rabbits”) trapped together, but one of them is secretly trying to kill the others (the […]

Hai to Gensou no Grimgar Episode 5: Moving on

I don’t know if this is actually a cliche, but I’m getting a bit tired of the “a person’s life is so cheap” line. Sigh…I was thinking that Ranta might be doing something useful when he said he was leaving…instead, he’s just here wallowing in a bar like the rest of his comrades. Come on, […]

Dimension W Episode 5: Well, that was a bit convoluted…

Water enemies! Don’t you love it when the antagonist conveniently has a weapon that you can use against his own allies? First off…they just figured out that these guys are made of water? That was my first guess. And secondly, why does this work? Was it the fact that the plastic wasn’t porous enough for […]

Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Episode 18: Words!

Continuing from where we left off last time, here’s Kudelia’s speech! It’s interesting that she just flat-out tells everyone what happened at the protest…I wouldn’t expect people to believe her. Sigh…police logic. Aren’t you basically admitting that you caused the massacre if you do that? Also, “arrest all the things!” The song that’s playing right […]

Gate S2 Episode 17: Dungeons and Dragons

Wait…the battle against the dragon just ended? The dragon dodged the rocket and just ran away? That’s an awkward way of wording it. I get that what they’re trying to say is that more food will become available for the dragon while it’s sleeping because time will pass, but this sentence makes it sound like […]

Boku Dake ga Inai Machi Episode 5: The culprit??

The character for “hope” is plastered across the wall behind him? That’s about as subtle as slapping a guy in the face with a fish. This feels a lot like a misdirect. Is Kayo actually alive? Oh…never mind then. But if she’s truly dead, is it for a different reason this time? I don’t see […]

Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo Episode 4: Dullahan and the Headless Horse

I’m conflicted about this skill. On the one hand, having the ability to get fresh water whenever you want is pretty important in a fantasy world because indoor plumbing isn’t a thing. On the other hand, doesn’t Aqua already have Nature’s Beauty, which can produce healing water? This skill can’t be any better than hers, […]

Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo Episode 3: Not the cabbages!

Oh, I see…she’s supposed to be the perverted fetishist of the group. Judging by some of her reactions, she might also be the masochist of the group, but I’ll wait to pass judgment on that. Me too, buddy…me too… High strength and constitution with no dexterity? Sounds like a dedicated tank to me. I understand […]
