Bathing in the Trunxx #07 — And Now, Filler

Sat, 24 Feb 2018 15:49:05 +0000

  Not even passable filler. Impressions: This is the kind of episode where I'm tempted to flex my creative writing muscles, make something up for a paragraph, and then just go "Nah, it was just a beach episode." Instead, "It was just a beach episode." It was such a beach episode that it had a […]

GARO – Vanishing Line #19 — Kick the Baby

Fri, 23 Feb 2018 22:55:47 +0000

  Wasn't that an enemy in Persona? Impressions: The big bugaboo with this series that has been lurking in the shadows is coming home to rest as it sort of crawls towards its end. And we're seemingly going from a series of aborted midboss fights here into one of those godawful "For The Man Who […]

Grancrest War #08 — The Flashback Nobody Asked For

Fri, 23 Feb 2018 22:15:24 +0000

  Holy hell, has this show fallen off a cliff. It wasn't even that exciting to begin with. Impressions: We get a goddamned second episode about the blonde wavy haired enemy of drains, this time mainly flashbacks to how that stupid wedding at the very start of the show came about, from the point of […]

A Failure of Selection Pressure

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 22:21:40 +0000

  This week, writer's block won. I was mentally trying to pen out a writeup on agency this week, spurred mainly by remembering how godawful Nanoha's route in Baldr Sky is and how one of the core problems of Baldr Sky is, like I already mentioned in the previous writeup, how basically none of the […]

Barreling in the Drinks #06 — Five Minutes of Pistoning

Sat, 17 Feb 2018 15:45:39 +0000

  I don't get this arc. Impressions: You know what every action scenes? A long cut away to people sitting on the sidelines to talk in the extreme abstract about the reason they're fighting, while not fighting? What the hell even was that little scene? Although it's not like the rest was any better directed. Animated, […]

GARO – Vanishing Line #18 — ISP Monopoly

Fri, 16 Feb 2018 22:55:35 +0000

  What on god's green planet happened with/to this episode? Impressions: What a remarkably bizarre and terrible episode. Mostly the latter. I spent the vast majorit of the episode just being bored and thinking how much better things might've been had there been a timeskip at the end of the first arc for Sophie to […]

Grancrest War #07 — Drama Weather

Fri, 16 Feb 2018 22:22:15 +0000

  Very subtle direction there. Impressions: Another episode of Intrigue, which, ironically, is not intriguing in the slightest. It even introduces another new character, a dandy nobleman with enough blonde hair to clog a hundred thousand drains. How he's different from the other plumbing-killer, I'm still trying to work out. I think it's because his […]

It’s a Poor Craftsman Who Blames His Tools

Wed, 14 Feb 2018 21:15:53 +0000

  Also, chocolate. I continue to have nothing really to talk about for the midweek doldrums of this season, which I suppose brings us ever closer to the day I do a real full review of Baldr Sky Dive 1, which will undoubtedly feature the phrase "Thank god for that cabal of benevolent interdimensional wizards watching […]

Starling in the TanXXs #05 — Have You Tried a Cream?

Sat, 10 Feb 2018 15:53:35 +0000

  Add regular doctors to the list of things this world apparently doesn't have. Impressions: Welp, first arc over so it's time for a cooldown episode. In a show where 90% of the content is already undirected existential teenaging. The storyboard for this week seemed to only get as far as "pulsating tumor" and "one girl slaps […]

GARO – Vanishing Line #17 — Fury Road

Fri, 09 Feb 2018 22:50:40 +0000

  Hey, there's Chekhov's minigun. Impressions: In a lot of ways, this was a rehash of the last big balls-to-the-wall action episode of the show that capped off the end of its first major arc. That was my favorite episode of this show to date, so I'm all for more episodes trying to emulate that. […]
