Food Wars! The Second Plate Episode 12 Review

Episode 12: The Magician Once More Isn’t nice when things that you are hoping for come into fruition? Well Food Wars! The Second Plate brought to the table this week exactly what I was hoping for. For the first time ever we see Soma struggling...


Food Wars! The Second Plate Episode 11 Review

Episode 11: The Stagiaire This week, in the Food Wars! world, they dutifully jump back into more character development. Although, it may not be between Erina and Soma like I had hoped, getting to know Arato Hisako was just as good, for now. With the stage and...


Food Wars! The Second Plate Episode 10 Review

Episode 10: A New Genius This week’s episode was a bit of a disappointment. Not in how things developed, nor the outcome, but merely based upon how the build-up was done up until the point of the delivery of the verdict. That being said,...


Food Wars! The Second Plate Episode 9 Review

Episode 9: A Sword that Signals Autumn The great battle between the three superpowers in Food Wars! kicks off! With Soma’s friends worried, things transpired in a very expected way this week. While expected, I wouldn’t say this is a bad thing. In fact, this...


Food Wars! The Second Plate Episode 8 Review

Episode 8: Battle of Seasonality This week, Food Wars! The Second Plate took a bit of a much needed break away from the constant competition. Instead we got to spend time learning more about the ingredients that will be going into the final competitive dish...


Food Wars! The Second Plate Episode 7 Review

Episode 7: Beasts Devouring Each Other Food Wars! for the time being, remains rather predicable. We have excellent build ups for great future episodes but are sometimes left with nothing but repetitiveness at times. The episode itself is still solid, mind you, just was cheeky with the...


Food Wars! The Second Plate Episode 6 Review

Episode 6: Dawn Will Come Again It comes as no surprise; Soma kicked more ass in this week’s episode of Food Wars! The Second Plate. In a totally predictable turn of events, this episode followed a typical shonen style with nothing of much substance happening...


Food Wars! The Second Plate Episode 5 Review

Episode 5: The Secret in the First Bite Well it finally happened. We finally have a bit more interaction between Soma and Erina. The amount of actual interaction in Food Wars! between the two of these characters has been rather limited and I have been...


Berserk Episode 2 Review

Episode 2: The Holy Iron Chain Knights It’s still amazing to me that we’ve finally got another Berserk series. I’ll stop gushing and get over it soon. It’s still awesome though. “The Holy Iron Chain Knights” may be the second episode but it’s the first episode to...


Food Wars! The Second Plate Episode 4 Review

Episode 4 – The Pursuer They have done a solid job setting up Subaru as a villain. He seems pretty diabolical, potentially short-lived due to his small scope, but diabolical nonetheless. In a fight for Takumi’s mezzaluna he is relentless in taking down his...


Food Wars! The Second Plate Episode 3 Review

Episode 3: The Generation of Prodigies It appears that we spoke too soon. Food Wars! The Second Plate has finally shifted the tone and added another side plot to the mix. This is a nice enough change considering episode 2 didn’t feel as strong. This week...


Food Wars! The Second Plate Episode 2 Review

Episode 2: The Interplay of Light and Shadow I hate to be the bearer of bad news on this episode of Food Wars! The Second Plate. Other than a few hilarious moments, this episode felt rather weak. There was bit of backstory on this overall,...


Food Wars! The Second Plate Episode 1 Review

Episode 1 – What Fills the Box Hot damn does it feel great to have Food Wars! (also known as Shokugeki no Soma) back! The first episode in the second season of this show was certainly everything that we have been waiting for since the last season...


Berserk Episode 1 Review

Finally, after nineteen years of absence, Kentaro Miura’s dark fantasy series Berserk is back with a TV anime adaptation. Seriously, in the years that the last Berserk anime series was airing Bill Clinton was still serving as President of the United States and you were hearing Aerosmith’s...


Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress Season 1 Review

Through Blood and Iron Disclaimer, this review will have spoilers for the Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress series. Consider yourself warned. For some time now, people have been waiting (not very patiently) for Studio Wit to produce a new season of Attack on Titan. Instead,...
