Zodiac War #11 — Cut Content

Tue, 12 Dec 2017 22:11:23 +0000

  Visually and dramatically. Impressions: I guess we're just not going to be getting the backstories at all for Ox and Rabbit then. Not that I wanted yet more long flashbacks, but we spent two goddamned episodes on Dragon/Snake, and can't even spare two minutes for the principals? Okay. Sure. Jury's still out on Rat, […]

Whale Babies #10 — Wherein the Writers Stop Trying

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 16:14:48 +0000

  I'm not sure how much they were trying in the first place, so perhaps completely stop is more accurate. Impressions: Boy, this episode reeks of… Well, I'd say jumping the shark, but that might give the mistaken impression that it was passable before. Mostly, I'm curious about how they seem to have already completely recovered from […]

A Sister’s All You Need #10 — Animal Abuse

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 15:52:30 +0000

  We've run out of ideas, haven't we? Impressions: Yet another rather weak episode that seemed pieced together from random notes on the cutting floor. It starts with an overly melodramatic flashback about all the family issues and how he came to have a step-'brother,' so the episode would be about that, right? Nah. 'He' […]

Fate/Apocrypha #22 — Outsourcing the Hard Stuff

Sat, 09 Dec 2017 17:01:06 +0000

  Need something to put in the portfolio, huh? Impressions: I guess you could take the perspective that they're finally putting some effort into animating the fights again. Of course, I'd be more impressed if they were doing it themselves instead of outsourcing it to other people in a completely different style from any episode […]

GARO – Vanishing Line #10 — How Luke Got His Groove Back

Fri, 08 Dec 2017 18:27:48 +0000

  By not really doing anything, and not learning any kind of lesson. Impressions: This felt very much like it should've been two different episodes, or they should've done a much better job weaving them together, thematically and structurally. I expected both more Luke backstory, which since it's anime, of course means flashbacks, as well as an […]

Zodiac War #10 — Milking It

Tue, 05 Dec 2017 22:00:52 +0000

  Ten minutes of flashback, ten minutes of death scene. Impressions: Really? Tiger's big grudge against Ox is that she has a crush on him? It's just a plea for attention after getting a motivational speech about doing the right thing, even if it's sometimes hard. That would consume easily half the episode, until Rabbit's […]

Whale Babies #09 — Bringing an Imbecile to a Gun Fight

Sun, 03 Dec 2017 17:44:24 +0000

  Oh, are we visiting the clock dimension this week? Impressions: Most of this episode was spent piffling over the death of a character who I can not actually tell you for certain whether or not he even existed prior to this episode. His death comes as a complete surprise, of course, because he jumped […]

A Sister’s All You Need #09 — One Joke For Twenty Straight Minutes

Sun, 03 Dec 2017 17:23:01 +0000

  This episode was genuinely painful. Impressions: It's amazing how despite the lack of jokes or content, they're apparently scraping the very bottom of the barrel. This week's episode was atrocious. It has one joke, That Random Girl Likes Underwear. That's it. That's the 'joke,' if you can even say that qualifies as a joke. […]

Fate/Apocrypha #21 — Greco-Roman Wrasslin

Sat, 02 Dec 2017 16:56:05 +0000

  That's why you don't wear scarves to a fight. Impressions: I feel like there should be a lot more wind while people are standing on top of airplanes, pontificating at each other. Or at the very least, the roar of engines drowning them out. But no. They're up there, idly chatting in a normal […]

GARO – Vanishing Line #09 — Road Trip

Fri, 01 Dec 2017 18:43:38 +0000

  Budget recovery episode. Impressions: A quiet recovery episode was expected after blowing the budget with wall to wall action last week, but this was still far duller and free of content than it needed to be. This could've been an important bit of growth for Sophie or even Sword, or a chance to show […]
