Because this season I’m watching more shows but reviewing less of them week-to-week I figured it’d make sense to at least let you all keep tabs on my brief thoughts on each episode. Just because a show is here doesn’t mean it’s any less good than any other show, it just means I didn’t have enough to say about it to justify a full review! Also, I’ll try and refrain from spoilers where possible but will give warning if I do need to post a spoiler.
Goblin Slayer (Episode 9)
At this point the only reason I’m still watching is to add this to my completed anime list. There’s very little enjoyment I get out of this series so I won’t bore you with complaints, the only scene of any interest was the one between Sword Maiden and Goblin Slayer and despite some interesting dialogue still managed to be ~problematic~.
Space Battleship Tiramisu Zwei (Episode 10)
The comedy in this episode was very specific, and sometimes that can make it difficult to land but for me it was absolutely perfect… I was laughing so much from beginning to end and it managed to introduce some actually “dramatic” plot elements too!
Banana Fish (Episode 22)
I won’t go into spoilers for obvious reasons but despite the dramatic upheaval at the end of the episode, I kind of didn’t feel anything. I was way more sad about what happened to Ash earlier in the episode. Still a high energy, high drama episode–even if I felt some of the animation felt a bit ~looser~ this week.
Ms. vampire who lives in my neighbourhood. (Episode 9)
A really fun and light-hearted episode (though most of them are so I’m not sure why I even brought that up). The two vampire’s visit Akari’s school cultural festival which is filled with the requisite shenanigans then in an extended after credit sequence Sophie tries to confront her fear of baths at a hot springs. It might not sound like much but this episode was filled with great little character moments, charming interactions and even some laugh-out-loud gags.
Boarding School Juliet (Episode 9)
Another really solid episode from a show that’s so far not really put a foot wrong. Having Inuzuka have to play the role of Char’s escort was good fun, but also managed to soften my overall feelings for a character who had been up to that point kind of inhumanly cold. Plus the cliffhanger involving Inuzuka’s older brother is very interesting and has made me eagerly await the next episode!
Skull-face Bookseller Honda-san (Episode 9)
Like I’ve said previously this show is at its best when it’s dealing with the day-to-day insanity of dealing with customers so the fact that this has a bit of both that and the behind-the-scenes publisher stuff means its a bit inconsistent. Still quite a few chuckle worthy moments to be had!
As Miss Beezlebub Likes (Episode 9)
Mullin and Bell weren’t nearly as insufferable as they had been in past episodes but they were still the weakest part of an otherwise decent episode with the interactions between Azazel and Gocchin being a particular highlight. Gocchin best girl!
Zombie Land Saga (Dropped At Episode 2) The Girl In Twilight (Dropped At Episode 4)
And that’s the week of anime I’m calling ‘Week 8’ if you have any more questions about these episodes and specific thoughts I had on specific scenes, leave me a comment below!
