With going through the numerous anime from last season that I watched, I have ended up being somewhat behind in my other horror film reviews for the year. So, I need to make up for lost time – with Futureworld, the sequel to a horror film I watched a couple of years ago, Westworld.(more…)
In a bit that we haven’t done in a while, we fend off a bunch of Swarm while Jack rips a door.(more…)
We head to a deserted mine to get some explosives.(more…)
This week we have a bunch of movie licensed games and the launch of a major puzzle franchise that continues to this day.(more…)
We find an upgrade for Jack’s flash attack, and find the location of the mine.
I’m fighting allergies this session, so no VO.
We reach the second relay and get a cloaking device!
As with the other episodes from this session, I’m fighting allergies so there’s no VO.
There are some anime with a strong first half, and then which utterly shits the bed in the second half of the show. Yu-No, an anime series based off of an Eroge (and which had an earlier hentai adaptation back in the ’90s) is one of those shows.(more…)
With the Summer 2019 anime season, while I enjoyed El Melloi II Case Files, I found it somewhat lacking as a mystery or detective series and had hoped that Cop Craft would make up for that. Cop Craft executes its Urban Fantasy Buddy-Cop story well from a narrative standpoint, but less so from an animation standpoint.(more…)
We check some salvage points to get supplies.
No VO this time, as I’m dealing with some allergies.
We reach the first relay and get some info on our next destination.
Note: I’m dealing with some bad allergies in this session, so no VO.
We find one of the outsiders holed up in a relay substation.
Note: I’m dealing with allergy issues, so no VO this time.
We get data on the research and the lead on another research installation.
Note: No VO this video – my allergies are giving me grief.
Lord El-Melloi II is a mystery series that breaks from the conventions of the genre. Specifically, the convention of using the question of “Howdunit” to determine “Whodunit”. When urban fantasy normally sets into this territory, you see writers structure out their magic system to fit within this magical structure. Lord El-Melloi II, on the other hand, tosses convention out on its head and decides to play Calvinball instead.(more…)
We make our way to the research facility, with a couple detours.(more…)
Kait learns more about her headaches, and Marcus points her toward answers.(more…)
After a time skip, we go to Oscar’s settlement to ask for help.(more…)
We learn JD’s dark secret.(more…)
Lupin the Third is a character who refuses to be tied down. Like Tom Servo, he’s like the wind, baby. His various earlier anime series and films have set him up as a consummate flirt and womanizer, and his adventures have spanned the globe. Lupin the Third Part IV upends that status quo immediately in both respects. In the second, Lupin’s adventures in this series are generally limited to Italy. In the first case, the series opens with Lupin getting married, and not to Fujiko Mine.(more…)
Occasionally, I watch an anime series that I feel utterly unqualified to review. Sometimes it’s something like Angel’s Egg, where I can clearly feel the concepts flying over my head and ruffling my hair – where I can tell what I’m seeing is art, but I lack the vocabulary to properly expand on the concept. In the case of O Maidens in Your Savage Season, it’s life experiences.(more…)
We make our way through the crash site to the Hotel.(more…)
We make our way to Carmine, only for a new type of Swarm to show up.(more…)
