I enjoyed this episode, despite it almost qualifying as filler. It felt like the calm before a storm, with Dororo suffering a bit as usual to balance out the light-hearted atmosphere.

Or at least, I believe that is what they were trying to convey.

The Con Man is Revealed!

Attack on Titan Season 3 Part 2 Episode 4 (or 16) Review.

Check out last week’s Episode 15 Review here.

Attack on Titan really loves its cliffhangers.

I would like to think that this is a redemption arc for Erwin Smith, who lied and conned the recruits into giving their hearts until the very end. Let’s give a round of applause to this absolute madman, who in the end gave up his dreams and decided it was all for naught.

So, after the current anime season ends…

I’ve written this post once before. After re-reading what sounded like the ramblings of a mad woman who jumped from anime to the state of American society in a single paragraph, I trashed it.

Last week, I ripped on the show in frustration over the path I thought it was taking. I’m so glad I was wrong.

Expectations subverted!

The Beast Titan Blocks an Escape Route

Attack on Titan Season 3 Part 2 Episode 2 (or 14) Review.

Check out last week’s Episode 13 Review here.

Okay, this episode was so good that I: watched it twice upon its first airing, went back to rewatch episodes 3, 4 and 9 from earlier in the season, and then got depressed after watching the latest Game of Thrones abomination. I haven’t watched Dororo yet, (those reviews will be on time, someday…) but I did watch The 100 and was reinvigorated by well-developed characters and narrative storytelling.
