First Impressions on Terra Formars

terraformars3

The Fall is at hand, and this crazy science fiction contraption gets to be the first one of the bunch. Thanks to the OVA I already had a pretty good idea what to expect, and the opening of the TV series delivered just about that. In both good and bad.

Closing Thoughts on Glasslip

glasslip4554

Glasslip is a pretty strange show as far as logic goes, because while it wasn’t just impossibly dumb like ZanTero, the writing took the weirdest turns.

Closing Thoughts on Aldnoah.Zero

aldmnoahq346w45y

We all hate split season shows, but after Aldnoah’s sorry excuse of a half-time finale it’s probably better that we get a season in between to recover from all this terrible bullshit. Or at least switch to another flavor called Psycho Pass, but more on that later. If anything, Aldnoah is one of those shows that are remarkably easy to review in the 140 letter format.

Maybe it’s just me, but it sure was as though this was commenting on something quite recent. Not that I read news anymore these days.

Guess it’s high time for this already. Daughters have been occupying so much of my time recently that ye blogge has had to take the back seat. But worry not, I’ll be rising from the ashes like an alcohol-powered Phoenix for when the seasons change. And with any luck, I’ll be unemployed again! Chart for reference here.

Science is my Jinsei waifu.

Well, only took me eight whole days to finish this one! I apologize for the recent silence, but as you may have noticed from the Twitter traffic, I’ve been busy with my duties in the admiralty due to the recent event.

Akame ga Kill! Ep6 – How to (Not) Kill Characters

akame6750

Worst Kanazawa performance since Angel Beats!.

For what I’ve gathered from the hubbub around it, the Akame franchise seems to be largely riding on the fact that a lot of characters die, and once they do they stay dead. This isn’t a bad thing, but there’s a catch: Killing a character is always a gambit move, and there are a billion ways to fuck it up. Just like in this episode. Frankly, I don’t know what the hell is going on with this season, because in the recent weeks it’s like every other damn show has decided to try and challenge SAO II as the reigning king of bullshit.

SAO II Ep6 – The Thin Glop Line

Since Zankyou no Terror challenged SAO II in the terms of Crap-O-Coaster-school of writing of constantly escalating awfulness and bumbling incompetence, I just had to see what Kawahara-sama had for an answer. And he did not disappoint.
