selector infected WIXOSS Episode 3: This Nonsensical Peace With the events that transpired last episode, we finally have what could be considered a villain in the series. That being said, Akira is clearly unhinged and may prove to be another sad story for us to reflect upon.

Golden Time Episode 23 Impressions

Golden Time Episode 23 – Last Smile Here we are, the penultimate episode. For weeks we have been trying to figure out how Yuyuko Takemiya is planning to wrap up Golden Time and as this episode came to a close, the answer became more unclear than ever before. For the first time ever, I had my breath literally taken away by how that last line was delivered. As if he were actually dying, Banri ...

Golden Time Episode 22 Impressions

Golden Time Episode 22 – Paradise Lost Just after episode 1, I ripped Golden Time to pieces for a number of pretty crucial reasons. It lacked the quick fire drama of a shoujo, but it didn’t have the comic edge that a more male-targeted romance would normally have. Instead, it chose to take the long road, building up Tada Banri’s character slowly and carefully, working its way tow...

Golden Time Episode 21 Impressions

Golden Time Episode 21 – I’ll Be Back “You have Kouko. No matter where you go, she’ll find you.” What happened?! Kouko! Why?! If this keeps up, I think I’m going to have to talk to Capsule Computers about getting some sort of health coverage in my contract, because my heart can’t take this kind of abuse! Forget an emotional rollercoaster, this episode was an emo...

Golden Time Episode 20 Impressions

Golden Time Episode 20 – His Chasm Watching Golden Time is like trying to catch an agitated puppy. It sprints off, leaving you dumbfounded and then as soon as it has calmed down and you have caught up, it bolts off again and the cycle continues. What was I thinking, saying that things had settled down last episode? An ending that I thought might just tie up a few loose ends has suddenly been...

Golden Time Episode 19 Impressions

Golden Time Episode 19 – Night in Paris Paris may be thousands of miles from Japan, but you wouldn’t know it from this episode. Tokyo has become the city of love – The long summer transformed the streets and made them blossom with the flowers of romance and not just the typical garish variety we get from Banri and Kouko either. It seems like everybody has been bitten by the love ...
