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.
Sailor Moon Crystal Episode Review: 1×05 “Makoto – Sailor Jupiter”Anime/Manga, Home
The long awaited Sailor Jupiter introduction episode is finally here, and it doesn’t disappoint as much as the episodes before it. With decent animation and a story that delves farther into Makoto’s past than any of her other origin stories, “Makoto – Sailor Jupiter” is easily the best episode of Sailor Moon Crystal so far.
Zankyou no Terror Episode Review: 1×08 “My Fair Lady”Anime/Manga, Home
With only a handful of episodes left, Zankyou no Terror is keying up for it’s big finish. It’s been an interesting, if sometimes frustrating, ride. With some many potential ways to wrap up the series, I look forward to seeing how things play out.
