Summer 2017 Anime Updates – Week 3

It’s time for week 3! Welcome to the Ballroom was a bit of a disappointment after waiting all weekend for it, whereas Gamers! surprised me by the direction it took this week. Restaurant to Another World gave us more of the same, Sakura Quest upped its game and Dive!! is becoming predictable. All in all, a jam packed week of anime!

Summer 2017 Anime Updates – Week 2

Welcome to the Ballroom wasn’t out before this post, but Dive!! really stepped up this week. Gamers! aired and I was pleasantly surprised by it. Sakura Quest is feeling more organic in its story line development and Restaurant to Another World continues its enjoyable story.

Summer 2017 Anime Updates – Week 1

The summer season has started and what a season we have in store for us! I really couldn’t decide what I wanted to watch so I just picked up everything that appealed. This week we continue Sakura Quest and start Welcome to the Ballroom, Dive!! and Restaurant to Another World.

Anime

Chaos;Child

Chaos;Child is at an end and it was a bumpy ride. The final impression was soured by a run of bad episodes towards the end of the series, but an overview of all the episode review scores shows it wasn’t too bad on a week by week basis.

Chaos;Child – It’s Over. Finally.

Don’t expect me to tell you what happened in this episode. I’ve haven’t the faintest idea. The series is over but I’m just as confused as when it started.

Chaos;Child – The Showdown Begins

It looks like this is the penultimate episode of this show and it was medicore. Some things were really well done but there’s still some questions we might never know the answer to and a cliffhanger ending that left a sour taste.

Chaos;Child – The Reveal, Part Two

As suspected, we got the reveal of the second culprit. I’ve tried to keep things pretty spoiler free in this episode review, but it’s all starting to feel a little lackluster. The suspense was more intriguing.

Chaos;Child – The Reveal, Part One?

A new episode rolls around and it took me a while to get to it again. It’s enjoyable but it definitely asks you to accept a fair bit without asking any questions.

Chaos;Child – All About Nono

Don’t expect Episode 7’s heights in this episode. We learnt about Nono and I wonder if my previous criticism of her design was partially intentional.

Chaos;Child – Prepare Yourself

I delayed watching this episode after the way the last two let me down. After watching it, I really wish I hadn’t! It had some really good choices made that kept the viewer’s immersion through some rather difficult emotional moments.

Chaos;Child – Disappointment Is Real

Episode 7 may be out today but I just caught up on Episode 6. It was such a disappointment for it’s portrayal of female characters and after a great start to this series it feels almost like a betrayal for it to stoop to the levels that it did in this episode.

Anime

Chaos;Child – Interesting Story, Odd Portrayal

Last week’s careful presentation of Serika was marred by this week’s depiction of Nono. Though the content was engaging the scenes presented were rather jarring and unexpected and served to disrupt the immersion of the show.

Anime

Chaos;Child – On the Up!

This episode is one of the best of the season. Despite the camera having an opportunity to exploit Serika, it was carefully avoided and showed some consideration of the her while still showing the situation the characters were placed in.

Anime

Chaos;Child – When Questions Go Unanswered

After episode 2, episode 3 had a high bar to aim for. Unfortunately it fell short slightly when it comes to Nono and dealing with the situation she had been placed in.
