The group encounters new challenges as the newest dragon takes us to new heights. Unfortunately, he’s not so excited about it. Maybe he is for one guy. Might Hak have found his match? We’ll only know when they enter this city of corruption and vigilance. Continue reading Akatsuki no Yona Episode 17 Recap
It’s definitely a pinch. Last week, Musashino Animation encountered its biggest roadblock yet. It’s all up to a few creative hands, some physical activity, and a whole lot of professionalism to get things going. Funny story, right? Shirobako solves its problems gracefully.
(No tables were actually flipped in this episode. Minor disappointment.) Continue reading Shirobako Episode 16 Recap
Aldnoah.Zero just keeps getting better. Some grudges, a few modifications, space battles, and a big surprise at the end, ohoho. Finally, Slaine’s doing something right. What away to get a plan started and it seems like we’re in for a little pivoting around the Satellite Belt. Continue reading Aldnoah.Zero Episode 15 Recap
Morality-wise, this series seems to linger in the gray area. I noticed a lot of this-BUT-thats. Nothing’s really wrong with that but it would be more refreshing if certain characters are founded on each extreme.
Some angst and a surprise visit from Su-won. As fun as it is to follow Yona and the gang, it’s time to get a view of the enemy side (or is he the enemy?). Some intentions are out while the majority remain hidden. Not so much movement here and we hope the next episode won’t be a filler. Continue reading Akatsuki no Yona Episode 15 Recap
This week, Yona welcomes a new addition to the group: a silent young man new to the world. It takes him a little while to get used to his new surroundings as it is traditional for every new dragon that joins them. Not every caveman rejoices at his leaving the cave but Shin-ah just might after a while.
Filled with contemplation and tears, this episode is sure to pull our heartstrings at least in the slightest sense. Continue reading Akatsuki no Yona Episode 14 Recap
I would’ve put this in the Rundown this week but it wasn’t that unremarkable to be there.
The first cour was so much fun that it’s only natural that we continue following Kaito and his conquests. A new chapter begins and the story goes on.
In this episode, we encounter a Kaito Kuroba taking a break from being Kaitou Kid… Or do we? Despite the cold setting, there is a heartwarming story too good to be missed. Continue reading Magic Kaito 1412 Episode 13 Recap
A difficult task is set out for a bunch of fourteen-year-olds and the teacher has nothing but impossible written all over him. The classroom may not be full of fun and laughter but it is sure to give you some. Continue reading Assassination Classroom Episode 1 Recap
A strange bar, a lone bartender, a cruel game, and a much crueler fate. How will we rule this anime with nothing to recommend it except for an almost amateur OVA produced by a prestigious studio? Continue reading Death Parade Episode 1 Recap
When the rice come apart one by one as the sweet tofu oozes out… is what happiness tastes like.
There are some things that need to be said of the people behind Koufuku Graffiti that raises our expectations. For one, the series is produced by Shaft and directed by Akiyuki Shinbo (Madoka Magica, Nisekoi, and the Monogatari series). The screenplay is written by Mari Okada (AnoHana, Blast of Tempest, Nagi no Asukara).
A simple story and food service are all you can find here. In a nutshell: family, friendship, food.
Continue reading Koufuku Graffiti Episode 1 Highlights
The piano competition arc ended with a wonderful realization from Kousei and an ominous warning from Kaori. Everything else seems like a blur since the previous episode was released a long time ago. I even forgot that they have a gala concert to prepare for!
We are met with renewed strength, deep conversations, generous fans, secret fans and an unexpectedly stuck-up kohai. The story of Kousei and his friends continues while we follow. What will our dear middle-schoolers surprise us with next? Continue reading Your Lie in April Episode 12 Recap
