Fate/stay Night Unlimited Blade Works S2 Episode 16: Finally an ally?

I’m so upset that the battle between Archer and Lancer started at the end of this week’s episode. Anyway, this week’s episode also brings up an interesting discussion about Shirou’s general mentality. Naturally, I’m inclined to side with Rin just because I’ve never been a believer of true altruism. I’ve always thought that most selfless […]

Danmachi Episode 4: Power of the support?

This week’s episode introduces Liliruca Arde, also introducing the concept of the support. I feel like they talked more about the role of the support in the manga than the anime…essentially, they move dead bodies out of the way to give adventurers room to fight (because monsters can’t just fade away like they do in games) […]

Kekkai Sensen First Impressions (1): What did I just watch?

So this was kind of strange introduction to a show. I’m not even sure I fully understood everything I saw. In a nutshell, this show takes place in a New York City where humans and supernatural beings live alongside each other. The main character, Leonardo Watch, is a seemingly normal human with supernatural “eyes” capable of very […]

World Trigger Episode 26: Side effect

There’s a lot of discussion about Side Effects this week and I’ve been wondering what differentiates a human with a Side Effect from a human with some nearly-supernatural talent. If the Side Effect is something that occurs naturally from birth, then there has to be a way to tell it apart from a normal human […]

Gunslinger Stratos Episode 3: In the field

Okay, I think I’m done with this show. It’s not because Shidune is apparently dead…I honestly don’t care for her character. I just find most of the show too cringe to watch on a weekly basis. To give some specific examples, I’m assuming this NDSF thing that Tohru is able to use is a temporary […]

Plastic Memories Episode 3: Do people not lock their doors?

So this week’s episode wasn’t too eventful. It really played out like a poor attempt at a comedy skit. It makes sense that Isla would be averse to making connections with people knowing how limited her remaining life is. That being said, watching Tsukasa trying to bend over backwards to get her to open up […]

Owari no Seraph Episode 3: Demons

Oh yeah…I forgot that Yuuichirou had to deal with the random demon this week before he got his own weapon. Anyway, this week’s episode introduces a bit more the cursed weapon that Yuuichirou needs to fight the vampires. It also shows that despite his vendetta, he has a surprisingly strong heart (unusual for a character […]

Fate/stay Night Unlimited Blade Works S2 Episode 15: More backstory?

Oh hey…they really did kill off Berserker and Illya right as Shirou and Rin arrive. I guess those two really can’t catch a break. Oh well…I can’t really say that I’m upset about it. I was getting tired of hearing Illya say “Berserker is the strongest in the world” anyway. On the flip side, this […]

Danmachi Episode 3: Potential

I really don’t remember this battle being quite this dramatic when I was proofreading it in the manga. Anyway, this week’s episode introduces us to just how overpowered Bell is as a character. Even if he has hyper scaling, this level of growth just seemed insane to me. I didn’t really get far enough in […]

Hibike! Euphonium First Impressions (1): Joining the band

A friend of mine told me a bit more about the premise for this show, so I decided to check it out. I can actually somewhat relate to the main character in this show. Kumiko Oumae is a brass player who was in her middle school’s concert band. Realizing she doesn’t have the same passion […]
