And with this, the second season of Tsubasa Chronicle has ended. All that’s left now is to look forward to April, in which its third and final season will air. Fei Wong also had some interesting reasons for being involved in this arc. Because of Dhaos’ huge powers, they were able to locate Sakura and Syaoran again. If they could take this power, they’d be able to control Syaoran’s journey again. Chaos himself ended up being indeed a cluster of feathers, who developed a mind of their own. He indeed possessed a huge amount of feathers, meaning that the ones he fed Sakura were specifically created for that purpose.

There were a few strange things about this episode. Some things I didn’t expect. First of all, when Dhaos disappeared and turned back into the feathers, they actually scattered, instead of returning to Sakura. Only one feather found its way back to her, which also explains where Dhaos got his inspirations for the fake memories he created.

I also actually expected Fei Wong’s plan to succeed in the end. After all, then he’d get back in the picture again. I’m suspecting that he’s going to succeed somewhere in the third season. In any case, once he does, the fillers will be entirely over.

[EDIT]Okay, there isn’t going to be a third season, unfortunately. If a third season was planned somehow, then it would already have been announced.

    There’s been speculation that there won’t be a 3rd season for Tsubasa. Wouldn’t that be terrible??

  2. psgels psgels says:

    Ow… that isn’t good. Still, after all the building up, it would be almost impossible for a third season not to be broadcasted. And if the creators knew about the bad sales, why didn’t they air manga-material, in order to lure viewers back?

  3. Sora says:

    Really?! That would be a disaster! I got hooked on the series when a friend told me it was CLAMP’s ‘greatest work’! Is season 3 really the last season? There won’t be any more after that?

    IMO, 26 episodes seem too short to finish up all the loose ends in the story… What about Fai and Kurogane’s story? We don’t even know much about Fai yet! And about Sakura’s father Clow Reed… Since that Fei Wang guy and Sakura’s father share the same family name, that means that they’re related?! How about Syaoran’s mysterious double? I wonder what that was all about… And Yuuko, too. She seems as if she knows what’s going to happen to Syaoran and the group…

    Forgive me for my ramblings but I really want confirmation… It’s not just only me but I feel that most of the series’ fans would like to know as well…

  4. psgels psgels says:

    Hmm, for as far as I know, the third season has neither been confirmed nor denied. I’d hate to see it getting canceled, though.

    And about the huge number of lose ends… if I had to guess, then it seems that the creators will be turning up the pacing another notch, if this keeps up.

  5. BakaWawa says:

    What The Hell…!!!!?? I Want To Continues Watch Leh~~~…..I Want To Know About That Fei Wang….Also The Boy Seem Same Like Syaoran!!….Who was That!!!??……Hope It Not Be Canceled And Coming Out The 3rd Series…Argh!!!!!

  6. psgels psgels says:

    Heh, I feel the same. I’m dying to find out how this show will resolve. After all that time this anime spent building up, it would be a huge waste not to resolve it.

  7. Kimi says:

    It would be horrible if they don’t do 3rd season ;;__;; Because I really want to see all those acts what happen in the manga on move. But I believe if they’re going to quit Tsubasa from now, they have a good reason for it u__u

  8. secret^^ says:

    is there a specific date on which it will be out?? because i have been checking it everyday since april 1 and it is getting a bit annoying. ther better be a third season i gotten so into it that i cannot stop thinking about it.

  9. psgels psgels says:

    Well, don’t put your hopes on Tsubasa Chronicle coming out soon. Right now, the reruns have nearly ended (they will end around the beginning of May), but when they end, Dennou Coil will be taking over its timeslot. Apart from that, we have no new news about the third season.

  10. Envie says:

    Well, after going on the NHK’s TRC site (http://www3.nhk.or.jp/anime/tsubasa/index.html), it appears that there IS going to be a 3rd series. I think. Under the black writing in the top right that says 6:30-6:55, there’s some red writing that says (as much as I can read) “From the 4th of April __________”. If there wasn’t going to be a new series, they probably wouldn’t have this announcement. Unless, I suppose it’s announcing the reruns but that just seems anticlimatic. If anyone can read more japanese, could they tell me what it means? XD Arigatou in advance ^^

  11. Envie says:

    Edit: 7th of April, even *blushes*

  12. psgels psgels says:

    I’m not sure about the meaning, but the fact that the 7th of april has passed, with no news or no releases probably means that it’s about something completely different. Most likely the schedule of the reruns has been changed or something.

  13. psgels psgels says:

    Negima: You do realize that that’s an april fool’s joke, don’t you?

  14. Evilson says:

    Don’t worry about it. I will find a way to see it coming or not. If so, I will info you when I heard it. Got it. If you have the question for me, then ask me if you like.

  15. Evilson says:

    Rumor of April 7th is a lie. I learned most around the end of April between the middle of May.

    Here it is: I found another rumor:

    Final Thoughts: This second block of episodes certainly had its ups and downs. What surprised me a little was that my favorite episodes – the ChiXFye one and the super-deformed one – came from anime-original ones. It just goes to show that they’re not all mediocre.
    Assuming NTV follows their current schedule of Tsubasa reruns, episode 53 should premiere on May 12th, 2007. Hopefully the third series will be better overall. There’s some very good story coming, but we’ll have to wait until next year for the journey to continue.

  16. psgels psgels says:

    That’s another rumour that’s wrong. Dennou Coil will be taking over Tsubasa’s timeslot on May 12th, which means that the series is about to be taken off the air. Also, if that rumour really was to be true, we’d have heard something about it by now.

  17. Evilson says:

    Hey, Psgels. But, I did check every site (about Tsubasa Chronicles 3rd Series). It said it will start in May. I really don’t know. If it is April 29, 2007, I will find it out. you too.

  18. Da Beysta says:

    So… has there been any news about the third season?

  19. psgels psgels says:

    Nope. Not that I know of at least. If it were to start in may, it would have been announced already.

  20. Aska says:

    I could be wrong but i do hear that CLAMP cut the ties with Bee train and there will be no third season. I’m really trying to figure out if thats true. I can’t read Japanese so I really can’t figure out if that info is on their website.

  21. Pika says:

    NO! there must be a season3….I waited so long for season3…please email me if there’s any news about season3……i have been hunting high and low but i cant get anythg at all. sob sob….

  22. Oriental says:

    Yeah, I’ve heard that it’s supposed to start on 12th May. It was originally supposed to start beginning of april but there was a problem between the people who made the anime happen. I don’t know much about it though. That’s what my friend who lives in Japan said.

    I can’t wait to see it though, I really want to see how the story unfolds and whether there is a happy ending or not for Sakura and Syaoran. I still don’t get the bit with the two Syaoran’s though, obviously they have a plan. I can’t wait ;)

  23. Aska says:

    Okay so i got a little more info on this.

    they’re airing episode 26 this Saturday, May 5.

    Then it says “Tsubasa Chronicle. Last chapter, the climax.” After that, on May 12, it is going to be replaced.

    Where’s the evidence you ask?

    It’s all in Japanese!
    Had to ask someone if they knew what was going on..
    >.

  24. psgels psgels says:

    Yeah, if there’s any time for the third season to be announced, it’s the coming saturday, after the re-airing finishes. If that isn’t the case, then there’s indeed not a lot of hope for a third season.

  25. Da Beysta says:

    so… today is the day.. keep me updated plx :P

  26. psgels psgels says:

    Okay, it’s May 5th, and an announcement has appeared on the website. According to babelfish, it says the following:

    “Broadcast ended. Support thank you.”

    In other words, the chance of a third season coming is very unlikely. Unfortunately, the fact that Beetrain cut ties with clamp is true, and episode 52 meant the ending of this series.

    I’m just going to assume that Tsubasa is over now. I don’t feel like waiting for something that might never come. It’s just a waste of enthusiasm.

  27. Da Beysta says:

    /cry

  28. Evilson says:

    DAMN IT!!! I WILL GET THE REVENGE FOR THAT!!! I WANT TO SEE IT ON SEASON 3 BADLY!!! LET’S HOPE IT WILL START IN MAY 12TH, 2007.

  29. psgels psgels says:

    If I may give you a tip: do not get false hope. The series won’t air on May 12th for sure, and if you continue to hope for it, it’ll only lead to disappointment. And hey, if the third season somehow does get announced, it’ll only make the enjoyment better. ;)

  30. hitzusen says:

    damn. I really enjoyed the way the anime was made too. So I’m guessing xxxHOLiC anime season 2 ain’t gonna happen?
    damnit.

  31. Andrea says:

    So its may 14nth did Tsubasa chronicles came out already?

  32. psgels psgels says:

    Andrea: nope, it didn’t.

  33. Chip says:

    Aw man. I just went through all of season 2, telling myself that I’d be right on time for the beginning of season 3. I think that it’s pretty -bleep-ing cruel to have fillers and teasers all throughout season 2, and then never follow it up with a season full of answers. Now I’m going to have to read the whole manga from the beginning so I don’t miss anything. Gahh, I want to know more about Syaoran’s double… T____T

  34. Christine says:

    Chip: Just read the manga. You’ll know info about “Syaoran’s double”.

    I’m sad that there’s no third season, too. I was expected to have third season coming up in the future. I think I’ll stick reading manga because some storyline in anime is the same as manga.

  35. natalie_rae says:

    this sucks!!

    the 3rd season was suppose to come out may 14th this year!

    they cancelled it because of some stupid company that doesnt want an anime showing liquor or smoking to the little kids.. this aint fair to the other people, right?

    i love syaoran and sakura!
    ill miss them!
    i hope that company changes their mind and show the next season to us!!
    dont u think so too?

  36. Alex says:

    WHAT?! why wont there be a thrid season? there has to be a thrid season, cause they left too many fillers in the second and first seasons. too many questions, unless they expect the viewers to read the manga, which id love to if i could get to a damned library!! >

  37. Alex says:

    ALSO, i heard from various sites that there will be NO MAY SHOWING AT ALL, and that they were cancelling the show all together. this really pisses me off cause they have worked so hard to get everyone off their seats, and suddenly they wanna stop production? WTH!!!

  38. psgels psgels says:

    Yeah, I’m not exactly happy with it either, but supposedly Bee-Train and CLAMP got in a fight, and were forced to break connection.

  39. hui yee says:

    what the y no season three and why Bee-Train and CLAMP must got a fight what happened in between

  40. tata says:

    if there’s no season 3…..it means that the crew that are in charge of it is irresponsible…how come??the journey hasn’t reach the end….still so many mystery left…..That isn’T a nice ending anyway….i thing anime just Like that…aLways hav SUX ending…they end it when they want to…if so ,better not to make the anime from the beginning…always keep ppl guessing…wat a horrible stuff….

  41. Dewey says:

    I’ve been patiently waiting for it to come…and for them not to complete it is not just a disappointment but also irresponsible thing…there are a lot of fans to this anime…I”m already pissed off of a lot of other animes for having abruct endings with no continuations..why don’t we have a petition for this?!

  42. Voula says:

    can anybody help me? Iwill never be able to read the maga of tsubasa chronicle!! see, you are more lucky than I am, cause you have alredy read the end. In the country I live, the manga are not so popular. So I’m never going to see, read or hear about the ending. you may be more grateful about your luck!

  43. psgels psgels says:

    Voula: have you tried to see whether any groups are still scanlating the manga?

  44. Kerebrus says:

    If that is true than why in the anime they had said that the journey has not ended, and in the end they had mentioned that the series was going to continue but did not had an specific date in which it was going to come out but if what youll are saying is true that they cut the show That F……pisses me off.

  45. MetalMouthMary says:

    So there won’t be a third season? Yeah i had figured much from youtube, oh well… I know where you can go see the manga, it’s kay? I’m sure it’ll help some people especially for english-speaking people like me. LoL.

  46. MetalMouthMary says:

    Grr.. stupid thing won’t let me post urls…. darnit! oh well, you cna always search on MSn groups, trust me i ofund it there!!!

  47. Kerebrus says:

    By my guess since there are releasing the seasons on the dvds that there is still a chance it might come out on the dvd since it was announced that the season 3 was coming out so they might need a new way to release this the third seasons. There are to many rumors and none of them seem to be truthfull , I wouldnt get peoples hopes up since to many rumors , but in this one website there were speaking about Tsubasa Chronicles a sort of a review and was rated 8.1. There may be a chance it may be released in the near future, Hepefully.

  48. psgels psgels says:

    At the moment, there indeed are a lot of rumours, though some of them may have some truth. Let’s wait for official confirmations before jumping the gun. I think I know what you’re talking about, Kerebrus, did you mean AnimeTV? If you did, then they were just discussing the first of the Tsubasa Chronicle DVDs, so the first season. They probably didn’t even know that the current Tsubasa Chronicle is as incomplete as it is right now.

  49. Kerebrus says:

    Ive seen all 52 episodes, I’d say is the best show CLAMP has come up with, for the only reason that this anime caught my attention was if Sakura would be able to remember Syaron in the end. This what go me so picked in to the show, STP witch taking the most precious memories, either way Id say it was the best anime that I’ve seen so far cause this kind of anime catch my attention it has a good storyline. Id say to many people are coming with to many conclusions when it hasn’t been announced officially I wish there was a way to email clamp like a sort of petition asking for season 3, that might work.

  50. Kerebrus says:

    If any one read this, all the news that were posted that was coming out on April/May it was never confirmed correctly, well think about this when season two of TRC supposely that it wasnt coming out but it did, and Ive been seen the dates in which the seasons have been coming out and have some sort of pattern to it so maybe it may come out later, is to all who still have hope for this series, not my intention to raise false hope but is only a glimpse of light.

  51. Rubimoon says:

    I dunno, this is way too shocking I’ve just watched the last episode and although it is an ok ending for the 2 season, it is a stupid ending for the whole series. In you tube I saw some videos and there was an AMV that had some parts of tsubasa I’ve never seen before. They look somehow different but there are only some parts. What the heck does this mean!? They show Sakura and Syaoran a bit more gorwn up. I know this might not make sense but are those parts from tsubasa at all? and if they are, why havent I seen them although I have seen the whole of 52 episodes and I never saw those parts. I am not trying to make people false hopes, but isn’t it a bit strange…I would really like someone to reply to that please!

  52. Hinode says:

    @Rubimoon … it’s a guess since I haven’t seen the AMV you’re referring but maybe those scenes are from the movie ..

  53. psgels psgels says:

    Great news, my speculations were wrong: an OVA has been announced. Go to
    http://psgels.net/2007/06/12/tsubasa-chronicle-ova/
    for more information.

  54. Raja Ikwan Hariz says:

    i konw that tsubasa chronicles season3
    but when?
    maybe next year o some thing dis yer
    i wan to watch the next episode
    on season 3
    in season 2 i have to on Animax

  55. psgels psgels says:

    Unfortnately, it’s still a question whether season three will come. It’ll all depend on how well the OVAs, that will be coming this autumn sell.

  56. jessthebest says:

    ive just watched the last ep of season two and im really deperessed with the whole there wont be a season three. I heard that CLAMP wont make it cause the broadcasting of Japan wont support them so they dun have enough money. Its around 50K for one ep. But that is just what someone said in a doodad XD.
    but either way its still depressing
    XP
    Anyway does anyone know what chapter the manga has on the anime episode 52??

  57. Creator says:

    WHAT THE HECK I see many anime doesn’t end -_- I realy hate it. why does it end at episode 52 that realy short like XXXHolic end about 20+
    Darn it
    What chapter does episode 52 D; send me some information by email :[

  58. none says:

    there is no more
    Tsubasa Chronicle

  59. psgels psgels says:

    Like I said, my speculations are wrong, and there’s going to be an OVA somewhere in autumn.

  60. Caitlin says:

    my guess at why they aren’t doing a 3rd season is because. Sakura lost so many feathers which means she lost a lot of memories. and they probably won’t be able to fit all the answers to the mysteries while having them collect all the feathers in just 26 episodes. it sucks. i do wish they would finish the series.
    i just l♥v the series. i really wish they would finish the series.

  61. ash says:

    WHAT ? no season 3 !? thats horrible ! i mean .. its like hanging in the air.. swts ==”
    But the manga is nice though =PP

  62. blue-jay says:

    I think there will be a 3rd season;shaoran’s double hasn’t came out yet, fai’s past is still unknown, and sakura’s secret mysterious powers are still “mysterious”, so I really don’t think they are just going to end it right there.

    I think shaoran’s double is just part of shaoran, except it’s the evil side of him…….

  63. all about tsubasa says:

    i don’t think there will be any season 3 ,but the comics is still in print.The syaoran who was travelling with the group all the while was a clone created by Fei Wong.The real syaoran is the one captured by Fei Wong

  64. all about tsubasa says:

    the sad thing is sakura never remembered syaoran

  65. all about tsubasa says:

    If you read the comics,Fai is actually the prince of another country,brought to celes country by the king.(fai’s past is sort of sad,if you read the comics)

  66. bubbleman says:

    there’s a trailer of the OVA on youtube.com

  67. jenny says:

    Where can you read the manga? and what chapter is after the anime finishes?

  68. all about tsubasa says:

    u can read the comics at http://www.onemanga.com

  69. George1234 says:

    A OVA of tsubasa chronicle has been announced. These episodes are not Season 3. They addiction episode which explain some thing (about syarans eye , I dream that sakura saw and something else. The OVA series is name Tokyo Revelations. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tsubasa:_Reservoir_Chronicle
    scroll till you find a headline name “Tokyo Revelations”

  70. Heyyyyy says:

    They shud of made Shaoran n others fly around n gather as many feathers as possible in the end. That would have saved some time.

  71. Anni says:

    http://www.tvrage.com/shows/id-2423/episodes/572857/3×01 Check this website out and can you confirm if the 3rd season is actually going to come out in 3 days?? (well japan i mean) I don’t know who’s right and who’s wrong anymore X____x I hope this site is right though (I’d jump up and down for about a week) =)

  72. Windspirit says:

    The Magician’s Message is actually the first OVA’s title.
    The OVAs are NOT 3rd season, they’re 3 OAVs animated by a totally different studio in a totally different style (in a more shonen-like style, without insert songs, epic music, still-frames to build up the atmosphere, etc., everything that made me LURVE the Bee Train seasons, in short) meant to adapt the manga’s chapters 107-135.

    And, oh God, they totally FUCKED X’s cast. And Subaru has’t appeared yet. T____T

  73. Haven says:

    Sry those who like Syoron…But i want to said,Chaos is really cool!!!I like his hair!!!I’m learning how to draw this Chaos guy.But i don’t like this Chaos in Tsubasa Chronicle..He is very mean!

  74. KEA says:

    I LOVE tsubasa! Did you noticed that through out the series {in the manga and anime} that in the manga there was some worlds that are not in the anime and that there are some worlds in the anime that are not in the manga?Well I did. If you have been reading/watching the manga/anime then you would have noticed by now. ^_^

    P.S. SPOILER ALERT!!

    In the manga and OAV there is the apperince of 2, and may I repeat this again, 2 Syaron’s in the story! One of them was a clone(the one from The Kingdom of Clow)! I know its shocking, trust me on this,I was shocked too! Later on you can read the story about Fai’s past too!(who is also half VAMPIRE now!)They go to Fai’s homeland(thats where they learn about his past)they also go to Karogane’s homeland too(after his arm was chopped off too as I might add).This is in CHAPTiRE 174 in the manga,but Clone Syaron comes and battels it out with the Original Syaron while Sakura (as usual) is dead asleep.
    No need to thank me about giving theese valuable spoilers that are not out in English yet,but your welcome anyways!^_^
    BYE!:D

  75. Sesshys Lover says:

    about the 3rd season… if the OVAs (Tsubasa Tokyo Revelations) is a successful then Production I.G (who made the OVAs) will consider about the offer to do the 3rd season..

  76. manga & anime lover says:

    another spoiler-there was another Sakura,the one that was following the group all the while was another clone made by Fei Wong.Read chapter 178 & 179 at http://www.onemanga.com to find out more…

  77. iRISH jOY says:

    I hope this will featered in Animax.

  78. Trenton says:

    HOW COULD THERE NOT BE A THIRD SEASON. I stared watching this anime like a 2 weeks ago, and became instantly hooked. The viewers need to know what is going to happen.

  79. Angelica says:

    Please send seasone 3 of tsubasa chronicle before it’s to late plz

  80. Aish says:

    OMG say what! i’m dying to watch tsubasa and i’ve been reading about the episodes and now there’s not gonna be a third season? Your kidding me ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, please please let their be a thrid season!

  81. milfa-eun says:

    iF tsubasa Chronicles wouldnt be having a 3rd season, how could an anime fan like me wait that long. they wanted us to wait?! my goSh, can there be no 3rd season without me knowing hus the guy who had syaoran’s whole being, and whats with his eyes??.. i had a bunch of questions in my mind,
    when?

  82. micah elinor says:

    awww……. i want the 3rd season to be aired already

  83. Roberto says:

    I have just finished the two seasons of Tsubasa chronicles as well as Tsubasa Chronicles Tokyo Revelations and Tsubasa Shunraiki. This series turned out to be the best anime I have ever seen. If they do not end it I would be most irritated. However…we must not give up, just like Sharoan.

  84. Shane says:

    these episode are awesome and i hope they continue with a 3rd series because it would really be disappointing to everyone and even me as a person who loves watching these episodes of Tsubasa as well.
    So Let They Be More Episodes!!!!!

  85. Nikoru says:

    I agree this series was amazing!! I wish they would contiune the show to a third season so many unanwser questions. Now that I have watched all the anime Im on to the manga and I hope the comics will conclude completely through I want to understand and know if Syoaran will save Sakura and was the little Sakura a clone too? Why didnt Yukito and her brother know or did they? When was she captured to make the clone? Arg so crazy XD I

  86. Noelia says:

    I’m so upset that I cannot find episode 53! I really want to know the rest of everything. Syaoran, Sakura, Fay, Kurogane; I gotta find out! I cant watched the subbed episodes. I’m terrible with japanese! Please produce TRC dubbed!!!! I’m beggin ya!

    When I mean discussion I don’t mean a series of personal likes and dislikes- but judging objective elements: plot consistency, animation quality, restrain in fan-service and pandering, over reliance on tropes and cliches, etc. Otherwise we all have our different preferences.

    I agree with the cons of Eva, as well as its strengths. Same with Fate. Being pessimistic is a stance, not inherently a flaw. The setting of Eva predicates that tone. If anything I have a bias towards Berserk, and that’s mostly all out of nostalgia.

    Also what ladies? Even the “gentlemen” part is stretching it. It’s very easy for someone who didn’t follow anime 20 years ago to criticize one of its most historic moments. At least this Tenka Seiha fella doesn’t talk smack about what he doesn’t really understand.

    Being bias is not admitting to reasonable faults, not agreeing to them. Trying to exclude the historic significance of a show is not a calm rebuttal, but a desperate attempt to undermine. What is bias is defending Shirou’s childish idealism. Even Nasu realizes how ridiculous that sounds, and makes a point to counter it with one of his own characters. Although by the end he gives in and then pulls a Deus Ex Machina by reviving Archer one last time to tie up loose ends.

    You are the one whose not calm. Minute I say one negative thing about your precious EVA and you get riled up. And I don’t even hate the show, I just don’t think it’s the pinnacle of the medium.
    Ladies and gentlemen, presented below is the purest form of complete total blind Bias.

    Now if someone wants to have a calm discussion about it I’m more than willing to partake. But if you hate the show then that’s fine, just let it be.

    That’s the end of my rant. I know I won’t change any minds that have already been set, but K-off wanted to know what I found appealing about the series, and I gave my honest opinion.

    An anime original that wasn’t an adaptation of some manga, LN or VN gave it a certain charm and unpredictability, which is absolutely a welcomed addition. Now I’m not gonna deny its plateura of problems, but it’s hard to sit back and hear people call Casablanca shit because it doesn’t have the flair and optimism of Age of Ultron.

    Misanthropy in anime is old, cliched and boring. But that wasn’t the case when Eva did it. Plus it features characters like Misato and Kaji that are very hopeful for the future, going as far as planning to filter the ocean and regrow vegetation for society. There is definitely a bigger focus on misery, but as explained that was a mirror to Anno’s deteriorating mental health, which in itself added an angle of intrigue to the show.

    Now does it look old? Does it seem overdone and unoriginal? Absolutely. But that’s no th fault of the series for not accounting for viewers who are watching it 20 years later, after getting exposed first to all the stuff that have heavily borrowed from it.

Bungou Stray Dogs – 12 (end)

And we get to the end of Bungou Stray Dogs, but this last episode doesn’t offer any conclusive ending, instead feel more like a set up episode for the next season. This last episode functions like a typically Bungou Stray Dogs’ episode; there are many good things to say about it, mainly the technical triumphs […]

Joker Game Review – 50/100

When experiencing the wave of new anime each season it can get rather tiresome to notice all the teenagers fighting supernatural forces while gathering a harem through seer luck or similarly tired concepts. So when something like Joker game comes along and takes a road less traveled with it’s story, naturally I am well on […]

Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress – 10

After the Horobi’s laser light show and having Biba-sama completely dominate the narrative with his super cool looking henchmen, Koutetsujou no Kabaneri is back on track although it’s on different rails for here on out. Imprisoned by the Hunters and being caught in the middle of the impending final conflict between the Shogun and Biba, […]

Mayoiga Review – 78/100

Mayoiga has to be one of the most misunderstood shows in recent years. On a surface, the premise alone has a lot of potential. The idea behind putting 30 people, each of them has very different set of personalities, together in a bus to a mysterious lost village, in order to start over new life […]

Joker Game – 12

Upon finishing yet another rather uneventful episode of Joker Game, I began to wonder just what this series had planned for its finale. “How best to top off a rather mediocre series such as this?” I thought to myself. However when looking over general consensus over the episode I found out that I seen the […]

Re:Zero -Starting Life in Another World – 12

This looks to be the weakest episode of Re:Zero to date which does seem to be a trend when it comes to the arcs of the series. When looking over these twelve episodes I have come to find that the weakest episodes of the series are the first episode of an arc which does make […]

Mayoiga 12d

Mayoiga – 12 (end)

Mayoiga pretty much wraps up its story this week and for the series that focus much about anti-climaxes and inconsistency, this ending neatly conclude all of its main loose end. In the final twist of Mayoiga, it turns out that Koharun is God’s daughter (now I understand the inclusion of him in Mayoiga) and all […]

Kiznaiver – 11

I believe I finally figured out something much like Agata of this episode did. Over the course of watching Kiznaiver something in the back of my mind bugged me about it. It was something I couldn’t quite put my finger on but after watching this episode I believe it’s finally hit me. I now know […]

Bungou Stray Dogs 11d

Bungou Stray Dogs – 11

Bungou Stray Dogs strays to another side stories this week, it’s pretty much set up for the second cour, and in that aspect this week is a success one, both gives us a new light to existing characters and makes quite a bit of impression on our new characters. I kind of appreciate how the […]

Stella Glow Game Review-60/100

I really should be getting Grand Kingdom or waiting for Mirage Sessions. My review of Stella Glow is way past relevancy being nearly 8 months late, but I finally completed this and it wouldn’t hurt to briefly wrap up my thoughts about the game created by the now-defunct Imageepoch. I somehow managed to get through Lord of […]

Odin Sphere Leifthrasir Game Review – 87/100

Oh my. This game was just utterly, utterly incredible when it came out, so despite disliking the usual remasters (ahem, Valkyria Chronicles), I was pretty stoked when I learned I’d be able to play this again on better hardware. It came out really late into the PS2’s lifetime in 2007, so at the time, I […]

Chinese Animation Guide – Part 4: Chinese Traditional Animated shows

Welcome to the last part of our Chinese animated guide. This part will cover Chinese traditional art style, for me personally this is the most enjoyable group. The first thing you might notice in these shows are they were in different format ratio, lean more towards the Academy ratio format. I always find their traditional art […]

Lucid9: Inciting Incident Video Game Review – 85/100

It’s not often I pick a game up without prior knowledge. I abhor the act of pre-ordering and at least do a google search on the title to get a general idea of it’s overall quality. Gone are the day you walk into a game store and buy something purely on a whim or the […]

Chinese Animation Guide – Part 3: Haoliners inputs

This part we explore one Chinese animation studio’s works. I choose Haoliners partly because they are independent studio, and their works are not hard to find. Just established in 2013, Haoliners is an indie studio but gathered more reputation in the last few years in their homeland. My experience with them through those titles below […]

Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress OST Review

This will be the first time in my anime blogging career that I have ever done one of these anime OST review. It should be known that I have a complete bias for Hiroyuki Sawano as he has become one of the biggest composer for anime in recent years in some of my favorite anime […]

Chinese Animation Guide – Part 2: Chinese Anime shows

As much as I hated the term Chinese Anime (Anime stands for Japanese animation, strictly speaking), this is the exact term for those shows. Their influence from the Anime was so heavy that apart from the voice cast and some scene settings, you can’t tell those apart from the original anime. With that said, judge from […]
