Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress episode 5 – Smoke monsters

I quite enjoyed the bit at the start where the main character showed these new guns and weapons he had built using the remains of the kabane. That’s some real Xcom shit right there. Grabbing the corpses of your enemies, not really understanding them, but deciding the best thing to do is to strap parts […]

Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress episode 4 – Steam powered bows

How exactly did we end up with a kabane that is like 10 feet tall anyway? Given that he has this big growth coming out of his shoulder, I think you’re supposed to infer that in becoming a kabane he has somehow mutated. But I feel like his body proportions should be a lot more […]

Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress episode 3 – Zombie Vampires

I call bullshit on the scene at the start of this episode. Ikoma is trying to disagree with Mumei so to shut him up she kicks him in the balls. Except as we’ve already established he apparently can’t feel pain. Hence kicking him in the balls shouldn’t cause him to curl up into the fetal […]

Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress episode 2 – Featureless best friend

My secret favourite character in Kabaneri might be the main character’s dorky friend. Where everyone else in this show has super pretty character designs with unique distinguishing features, this guy looks like some background dude you only see once. Like some guy who was running away from the Kabane, slipped on a banana peel and […]

Spring 2016 Anime first impressions part 3

Final batch of first impressions for the season. Or second impressions? Or in some cases third impressions since various episode 3s have already started coming out. Damnit this is all your fault Big Order. Why you got to be so fashionably late? Who do you think you are, pre-Guilty Crown Noitamina? (I kinda miss when […]

Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress episode 1 – Attack on Trains

Here we have a steampunk anime set in a world where everyone is stuck behind giant walls to escape from man-eating monsters that look like horribly deformed humans. Our main character is angry at the world for hiding behind these walls, being afraid of ever breaking out from this layer of fear that sits over […]

Spring 2016 Anime first impressions part 2

Don’t ask. Next batch of first impressions. A touch less impressive than the last bunch with a few disappointments in there, but still an exciting season so far. Even if the ones I’ve enjoyed most so far have been the dumb comedies with cute girls and the serious manly anime have been a bit disappointing. […]

Spring 2016 Anime first impressions part 1

New season and already like 20 things have aired. Here’s a post about only 5 of them. I’m catching up slowly, I swear. I still haven’ watched the last episodes of a few things from last season. But there’s new shiny stuff to watch so who cares about the old anime.
