In the this part of the prequal series I will look at the sequel of the first Evangelion Rebuild movie; Evangelion 2.22 You Can (Not) Advance. Released in 2009 I would argue this was the strongest film in the entire Rebuild series. The balance in the story and action was the best out of the four movies plus the twists to the original Neon Genesis Evangelion storyline made this an interesting watch for newcomers and veterans alike. Despite what my review says (which was written when I had not...
Episode 3 Triumphant from gaining her new found treasure Jahy-sama imagines that everyone will grovel to her greatness! Jahy demonstrates that her mana crystal isn’t just for show and is actually the real deal by working a long shift. Working all day Jahy considers the fact she may have been a chum in using her crystal to do menial work... All it takes is a bit of flattery and you can get everywhere with Jahy! XD It is not long before Jahy is doing the most grimy jobs just to...
Episode 7 After the carnage of the previous episode Satoko takes a moment to reflect on recent events and what she can do to get the cat to stay. Satoko is confident that she has everything in the bag but Eua ominously reminds her that if she dies before the cat, it is game over. Was that a warning or a prophesy? Things are less rosy for Rika as she awakens and is confused at how events turned the way they did despite doing all the right things. Hanyuu tries to reassure Rika that...
Tsukihime -A piece of blue glass moon Yes the day we thought that would never come has finally arrived! Type Moon fans who have been waiting in a hole for the last 10 years can finally come out to enjoy the game! For those not in the know, Tsukihime blue glass moon is a visual novel game. It is a remake of the original Tsukihime which came back all the way back in 2000. Like before, Tsukihime will have two editions; the near moon edition and the far moon version. The current game released...
In this prequel watch we take a look at the second season of Higurashi series which answers a lot of the questions raised in the first season. In many ways I found Kai to be the true end and felt the subsequent seasons were, in essence, money grabs as entertaining as they were. If you want to get the complete story to Higurashi story then you need to watch this along with season one. Review: Whey They Cry: Kai otherwise known as Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai is a supernatural/thriller...
In the this part of the prequal series I will look into the first Evangelion Rebuild movie; Evangelion 1.11 You Are (Not) Alone. Released in 2007 this was supposed to be a reboot of the original Neon Genesis Evangelion. The production values in this series was outstanding and even the original movie is stunning to this day. Whilst the first two movies broadly followed the original anime series the last two take the series into entirely new territory. Review: Evangelion: 1.0 You Are...
Episode 3 Confronted with what appears to be Iroha's doppel it is not long before Yachiyo and Kuroe are swept away… Soon after, Yachiyo is woken up she is startled to see Felicia, Tsuruno and Sana. Confused she tries to gain her bearings rushing to Iroha who remains asleep in her bed. This sudden turn of events is pretty baffling for Yachiyo and viewers alike. What just happened exactly? Kuroe fills us in and it would seem that Iroha's doppel has absorbed both of them into what can...
Episode 5 After the roasting Nanako got dished out in the previous episode she has gotten over her initial grievousness and has decided to put her all into training to be a singer. In a moment of downtime Nanako has a heart-to-heart conversation with Kyoya and thanks him for his inspiration and continued support into achieving her goals. The university festival is underway and it’s all hands-on deck as the whole gang help out in the maid café that they are running for the next two...
In the fifth part of the prequal series I will delve into the Higurashi franchise. I will start with the original that started it all, Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni that came out all the way back in 2006. The series certainly left a mark with its style of horror and gore but behind the mindless violence was an interesting tale of mystery that kept us questioning right until the shows end. It is certainly a show worth watching although it is not for the faint of heart or kids. Review: When...
Episode 5 Tohru and Elma duke it out in what appears to be yet another fight. It would seem that these two have always been mortal enemies yet when questioned about their past it would seem this duo holds a surprising secret. It would seem during their time together there was a clash of opinions. I love how they project the human personas into the dragons in this fight! A flippant remark from Kobayashi touches a nerve which sets both Tohru and Elma off. Are those two friends or...
Episode 5 The episode opens up with a quick cooking lesson outside. As usual Satoko is up to her usual mischief and it is not long before everyone’s dishes our fouled in some way. Calamities aside in this episode we discover Mion is developing feelings for Keiichi and she takes a moment to reflect on his gift. In return she fixes Keiichi a late-night meal under the “disguise” of Sion. Well, that is what I think, Mion is too bashful to admit the truth. Unknown to both there are some...
Episode 1 For those fans of Madoka you will be pleased to know that Madoka has entered the building! Yes, the opening scenes from Magia Record shows her fighting along with her loyal sidekicks Homura and Sayaka against some witch. After the initial salvos are launched and the witch dispatched, we get some bonding moments. As always nothing is plain sailing and they soon discover the hidden costs of becoming a magical girl. This shouldn’t be news if you watched the previous shows but it...
Shin Evangelion 3.0+1.01: Thrice upon a Time, :|| finally 9 Years after 3.33 movie Now available In amazon prime video, real question Is this definitely The End? :p
Episode 1 Jahy-sama opening track "Fightin★Pose" by Yui Ogura is actually pretty cute and captures all the characters in a pretty snazzy way. As we can see from the start, Jahy-sama was a respected and feared and respected in equal measure and was second in command in the demon realm. This is in stark contrast to our living situation back on Earth which is very Spartan in nature. This plus the way she gets on treated gets on her nerves! But to make a living like normal plebs...
In the sixth part of the preliminary series, I will be looking back once again on Higurashi: When They Cry - Sotsu, Night Head 2041, Sonny Boy, That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime plus Scarlet Nexus seeing how all those shows are developing. After this I will write an overall take of what I think of the summer season so after. That is after I see Jahy-sama and Magia Records! Stay tuned for those and my future article. Meanwhile enjoy! Higurashi: When They Cry – SOTSU I am pretty...
In the fourth part of the prequal series I will look into Magia Records which is a side story to the renowned Madoka series. While not quite as good as its main story counterpart Magia Records was still a fairly enjoyable watch. What is more this series has the potential for its second season to eclipse the opener as most of the character exposition and backstory has been covered. Review: Magia Record: Puella Magi Madoka Magica Side Story also known as Magia Record: Mahou Shoujo...
Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid S Kobayashi Dragon Maid continues to go from strength to strength as the last two epi’s were actually stronger than the first two. What is more with this being a slice-of-life/comedy series you can watch the episodes in any order. If you are a fan of Kanna, Saikawa or just maids in general then look no further than episode three because this episode is a showcase in how cute Kanna and Saikawa can be PLUS it is a brings to life the awesomeness of maids! The...
In this part of my preliminary reviews, I will be revisiting the anime I reviewed in part 1 of this series. Just to recap the anime I will be looking at are: Vanitas No Carte, All Routes Lead to Doom, The Detective Is Already Dead, Re-Main and Remake Our Life. Since I would have covered four episodes of each show this is the stage when I make a decision on whether a series should be dropped or kept. Anything that is five or below risks the chop. Vanitas No Carte The thing that is beginning...
In the third part of the prequel series I will cover the latest completed season of Slime Reincarnation. I actually found season two to be better than the first so if you have already watched season one then I highly recommend you watch this. Review Season two of That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime is an action/fantasy isekai series that was initially released in the Winter of 2021 season. It kicks off just where the first season ended. If you have not seen season one then you must...
Vinland Saga season two It has been confirmed that season two of Vinland Saga will be released! To be honest I wasn't too surprised to get this announcement but nonetheless it was a relief to hear this news seeing as some great series never get sequels. It is still early days so there is no news about when it will be released exactly so gotta keep our eyes peeled for that tidbit of news. If you hear anything though please drop a post! If you are not familiar with Vinland Saga it is a war...
