Shokugeki no Souma: San no Sara Review

Goddamnit JC Staff. When I heard that the third season was gonna have 2 cours, I thought that I could hold off on watching it till next season. But no, you chopped it in half and put me behind schedule. Personal salt aside, the third heaping of Food Wars porn starts putting the show into some bittersweet territory.

Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryokou Review

They say that it’s always the journey, not the destination. Often times, we seek something in our lives only for it to eventually fade away as we wither and die, leaving behind only the memory of who we once were in a world that will go on without us. In a world left as a shell of its former self, two girls take their last tour in what remains. Continue reading “Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryokou Review”

Inuyashiki Review

They say that given enough time, you either die a hero, or live long enough to see yourself become the villain. This interesting moral dilemma of what it takes to do the right thing is the basis for many hero stories, elevating them to be more than just a simple hero’s journey. Based on this principle, Inuyashiki takes this concept and turns it into a battle of muddied philosophy that ends up more black and white than the intended shade of gray.  Lovely.

Konohana Kitan Review

The genre of Slice of life has been so riddled with all female casts of cute girls doing cute things that each season seems to have its own version of the trope with a slight difference in its storytelling and/or setting in order to give the show some ‘unique aspects’. These aspects are usually easy to distinguish and end up seeming gimmicky cause at the end of the day, it’s still cute girls doing cute things. But then you have Konohana Kitan, a show about cute kitsune girls doing…not just cute things in their daily lives. Continue reading “Konohana Kitan Review”

Juuni Taisen Review

War. War never changes. People die when they are killed, greed overpowers all, fighting never gets us anywhere, yada yada yada. At some point in our lives, we’ve all heard a spiel kinda like this, and repeated doses of the phrase demotes the saying to an irritating platitude that means absolutely nothing. So, if you want to decide the fate of the world, what do you do? Pit 12 people against each other of course. What other way is there? Continue reading “Juuni Taisen Review”

Boku no Kanojo ga Majimesugiru Sho-bitch na Ken Review

The 4-koma. A simple yet pure comedic style that has recently been sullied due to the sheer amount of attempts to stretch the original source material into a full-length series. While yes, it can work sometimes, this is certainly one example in which having full episodes turns the experience into something that’s long and hard to watch. Yes that was intentional.
