Comet Lucifer Episode 8: Sogo is going to get punched again for this

I think we can agree that the biggest reveal this week is Mora’s a girl?!?? Also, it’s about time someone gave Sogo a good punch in the face, so kudos to Domon this week. He’s absolutely right too…Sogo is literally there just to summon Mora, so he has no business putting himself in dangerous situations. Protect […]

Young Black Jack Episode 8: Pain is back

Johnny’s story ended in a rather strange way. I get that Risenburg was trying to save both Johnny and Hazama by forcing Hazama out and curing Johnny himself, but everything seemed so abrupt. I get that Risenburg saw himself in Hazama, but did he solve the puzzle? His solution seemed to be a brute-force rewrite of […]

Owari no Seraph S2 Episode 7: The attack begins

So the fight against Crowley begins…my initial complaint about the episode is I wish they hadn’t spent so much time arguing about whether they would save their comrades. We could have had so much more action. That aside, I do like how green they show Shinoa (you’ll notice that she often gets pushed around by her […]

Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Episode 8: Harem King has arrived

Well, this week’s episode acknowledges the difficulty of repairing Barbatos…that answers the question I’ve have for a while about how Mikazuki can jettison his armor so easily. In short, he can’t. That aside, I guess this week’s episode is dedicated to introducing Naze to the cast…as the harem king. That explains why his crew is […]

Noragami Aragoto Episode 8: Main boss appears?

This week’s episode seems to reveal a lot of things while leaving a few more questions. For starters, the scene where Ebisu receives a report from some unseen figure combined with the comment Bishamon makes about Ebisu reincarnating often suggests that he’s just a puppet. From that, I’m assuming the main antagonist is a god […]

Subete ga F ni Naru Episode 7: Engrish, boys!

While I give the voice actors credit for mostly correct pronunciation, their accents were still pretty heavy, which made that entire English scene (which was about half the episode) very painful to hear. I definitely had a hard time paying attention to it…it took way too long. That being said, the key takeaway for me […]

Sakurako-san no Ashimoto ni Shitai ga Umatteiru Episode 7: Cats?

This week’s conversation between Shoutarou and Sakurako is actually something that you see in medical dramas a lot (I can’t say for certain whether it’s actually common in the medical field because I’m not a doctor). The situation with the cat is very similar to a family who refuses to allow a doctor to perform […]

Comet Lucifer Episode 7: Is this Halo?

In true anime fashion, it looks like the heroes find what they were looking for the minute they weren’t looking for it. My complaints about Sogo don’t really change this week…I’m surprised that I prefer Roman as a character despite the fact that I don’t typically like his archetype. Also, did anyone else find Felia’s […]

Young Black Jack Episode 7: Pain is a funny thing

This week’s episode is interesting (I’m going to sound really racist for this) not really for the civil rights aspect, but more for the lines that Hazama uses at the end of the episode. It’s reminding us that while Hazama is a talented doctor, his skill as a doctor comes not from his ability to mend, […]

Owari no Seraph S2 Episode 6: Preparing to attack

We got a nice throwback to the opening song of the first season in this week’s episode (it’s the song playing when Aihara stands up to “attack” Mika in case you didn’t notice). Another nice episode, this time focused on Mika. Despite how much he’s trying to embrace his vampirism to save Yuu, he’s still […]
