Sleepy Hollow is back after a ridiculous and awesome first season, and it’s brought with it the same sense of silly fun.

Zankyou no Terror Episode Review: 1×11 “Von”Anime/Manga, Home
Zankyou no Terror‘s ending is predictable, but that doesn’t mean it’s not effective. While all of the plot points play out exactly as I expect, the impact they leave is raw and devastating. Zankyou no Terror isn’t the game changing anime I wanted it to be, but it manages to invoke strong feelings with it’s sympathetic characters and melancholy tone.
Sailor Moon Crystal Episode Review: 1×06 “Tuxedo Mask”Anime/Manga, Home
This week’s Sailor Moon Crystal takes what is generally a pretty tightly written chapter and messes around with it until it no longer makes much sense. While it doesn’t completely screw up the narrative, it does make for a pretty jarring episode full of what come off as strange occurrences.
Free! Eternal Summer Episode Review: 2×13 “The Eternal Summer of Beginnings!”Anime/Manga, Home
Free! has come to what is likely a permanent end. While last summer’s Iwatobi Swim Club left us with the promise of more, Eternal Summer’s end card seems distinctly final. While I would never object to more swimming shenanigans, I think Free! found a good place to stop.
Gotham Episode Review: 1×01 “Pilot”Home, Television
So. Gotham is a thing. A big, messy, anachronistic, cliched thing. With laughable dialogue, simplistic characterization, and a never-ending parade of winks and nods, Gotham is going to have to work very hard to be as entertaining as it wants to be.
Zankyou no Terror Episode Review: 1×10 “Helter Skelter”Anime/Manga, Home
With one episode left, Zankyou no Terror sets the stage for the explosive finale.
Free! Eternal Summer Episode Review: 2×12 “A Swim-Off in a Foreign Land”Anime/Manga, Home
This week’s episode of Free! is the kind of heartwarming, cute episode I’ve been hoping for.
Zankyou no Terror Episode Review: 1×09 “Highs and Lows”Anime/Manga, Home
This week’s Zankyou no Terror wraps up a huge chunk of the mystery while also delivering a heartfelt and dramatic change in the relationships between Nine, Twelve, and Lisa. It’s a return to form after the less fitting tone of the airport arc, and all that’s left is the thrilling conclusion.
Free! Eternal Summer Episode Review: 2×11 “The Open Turn of Destiny!”Home
This week’s Free! gave me everything I wanted for this show from the beginning of the season.
Teen Wolf Episode Review: 4×12 “Smoke and Mirrors”Home, Television
I won’t lie. I watched the Teen Wolf finale. But I didn’t really retain anything from the Teen Wolf finale.
