[Review] Tokyo Ghoul Episode 10

This episode serves as a prologue for the Aogiri Arc

 

Notes:

1. This article comes from the perspective of someone who has read the manga.

2. I wouldn’t be critiquing the plot as much as I am going to comment on its progression.

3. Blue text usually indicates a topic change within a section.

4. Gray text, sometimes labeled as run-on note, are basically that–a no-punctuation ramble about whatever.

5. A spoiler among non-spoiler shit is like this for a reason. Don’t try too hard to read it if you don’t want to be spoiled.

6. If it wasn’t obvious from before, the manga scans I put up are butchered to fit what I’m trying to say. Everything is credited at the beginning though.

Warnings: 

Violence. Violence everywhere.

[Review] Tokyo Ghoul Episode 9

Holy shit this episode. Nothing much happens BUT A LOT HAPPENS AND THEY’RE VERY EASY TO MISS

A lot of new characters and I just want to cry at the sight of some of them, especially this guy

CRYING LORD WHY

Yes, him. Actually, all of them.

Nothing much here, I think.

[Review] Tokyo Ghoul Episode 8

This has been sitting in the drafts since the episode came out, but I’ve never gotten around to finishing it because school came and gave me a diarrhea of schoolwork I had to unload and clean up.

In any case, since the episodes came out, I probably won’t be making much predictions (and I won’t even go to TG:re and Root A). It should be noted that as I’m writing the review for each episode I have not watched the episodes that came after save for the first episode of Root A because yeah I’ve read the manga and I just want to know if the deviation looked good… yeeeah, we’ll get to that after I finish season 1’s episodes 8 – 12.

Warnings: 

No spoiler warnings this time because it’s been a while since everything was released.

Gore and violence abound, especially since I’m using the bluray releases so yaaay no more censorship! But stay safe.

Back for a Week

Wow, it’s been a while!

I’ve been busy with school so I haven’t had the time to write reviews and commentaries (among other things) on the things I really wanted to write about, and Christmas was mostly spent with family and friends playing Tales of Xillia 1 and 2, but we have a week-long break right now! I’ll write as much as I can because I probably won’t be able to write much until the school year is over.

In any case,  thanks for sticking around!

[Review] Tokyo Ghoul Episode 7

That… was actually a pretty good episode. I’m more worried about how much longer the anime will go on for, though.

 

Notes:

1. This article comes from the perspective of someone who has read the manga.

2. I wouldn’t be critiquing the plot as much as I am going to comment on its progression.

6. If it wasn’t obvious from before, the manga scans I put up are butchered to fit what I’m trying to say. Everything is credited at the beginning though.

Warnings: 

This time around, I’ll be discussing manga deviations as they go, since the changes are mostly on how the events occurred. Spoilers will be dealt with according to note #5.

No major spoiler warnings this time because I already did the spoilers for this in previous reviews. At most, you’ll have to deal with note #5 for spoilers.

Mentions and images depicting gore and violence to follow, so stay safe.

[Review] Kuroshitsuji: Book of Circus Episode 6

Wow, they’re really making up for the manga deviations they made. A lot of the shots are pretty parallel!

Notes:

1. This article comes from the perspective of someone who has read the manga.

2. That being said, this is the only adaptation of Kuroshitsuji I watched aside from the first few episodes of season 1. I have no idea what the fuck happened in the latter part of that season, and the entirety of season 2.

3. A spoiler among non-spoiler shit is like this for a reason. If you don’t want to be spoiled, do not highlight that shit. And it’s readable even without the highlighting so don’t try too hard if you don’t want to be spoiled.

Warnings:

Spoiler warnings apply. Spoilers on the episodes themselves will not be formatted as noted above. What will be formatted as such would be comments and references to future plot events as it happened in the manga.
