Attack on Titan Episode 36 / Season 2 Episode 11 – Charge

Attack on Titan Episode 36 Armoured Titan.JPG

The 36th episode of Attack on Titan (a.k.a Shingeki no Kyogin), or the 11th episode of season two, is an extremely notable point in the series. This is the episode in which everything these recent episodes have brought to the table finally diverge, the episode that sets up for the conclusion to what has been an interesting arc and a slight tonal shift in the series. And, certainly, something worth talking about whether you be a fan of the first or prefer the tone of the second season.

How Mayoiga (The Lost Village) was destined to fail

(This is an old post I never published, focusing on Mayoiga – an anime from the 2016 spring season)

Mayoiga (or the lost village) is a mystery/horror anime with a very large cast of characters. So large, infact, that it contains 2.5 times the amount of characters as there are episodes.

Eromanga-sensei Episode 9 – Fairy Island

I’m a little late on this one, but the newest episode of the cute girl anime of the season a.k.a “Eromanga-Sensei” was released a couple days ago and I thought it might be about the right time to write about it. Although this particular anime might not exactly be up my street  (Harem and Imouto are not genre’s I’m really in to), the past couple of episodes have been a slight step up, and I’d like to discuss why.

Episode 9 of Eromanga-Sensei is interesting, it takes a rather cliché trope of anime, the beach episode, and adds a little touch to make the viewers care slightly more than they might usually. That touch, being Yamada-sensei’s pseudo confession.

Attack on Titan Episode 35/ Season 2 Episode 10 – Children

AoT 2

So the latest episode of Attack on Titan just dropped, and my feeling’s are extremely mixed – I do like the direction season 2 takes opposed to season 1 (That being the Horror/Mystery feel of the show), but it would certainly still be nice to see some of the epic action scenes we got from the previous season. Exposition is alright when done well, but I think Wit have a little bit to work towards on that front. Maybe they should go watch some Monogatari, or something. Other than that, there is actually a gem of a scene in this episode, which I’ll get to later.

Tanaka-kun’s Genius Simplicity (And Simple Comedy in Anime)

(This was a post written and made in to a video a long while back, I thought it would be a good idea to bring it to the blog along with some more of my older content)

Protagonists from many different shows released every season find themselves in difficult and interesting situations, Tanaka-kun is trying to avoid ending up in them himself.

“Tanaka-kun is always listless” is an anime from Spring 2016 in which the main character wants to be anything but a main character; even describing his friend “Oota” as the protagonist of his own life.

(This is a very old post and may not reflect my current writing style.)

“The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth” is a game released as a “From the ground up” remake of the original “The Binding of Isaac” for PC and Playstation 4. The game has a fairly simplistic design approach and features many controversial topics that others might be afraid to go into the territory of. Needless to say, it’s original release was a massive success and the remake just as big, bringing in new players and attracting owners of the original, once again proving how well indie games can do as developers are perhaps less scared to create a more unique experience.
