S.W.A.T. Reviews: Spring 2015 Pt. 2 (It’s All Been Done)

April 20, 2015


Follow us directlyon Stitcher, or on iTunes

The premise of these reviews is simple: watch the first episode of a series and then immediately sit down to record a review mini-podcast. The reviews are five- to ten-minutes long and entirely off the cuff. As always we only review new shows (so no sequels or continuations) and try to avoid anything that just looks outright awful.

These are the first batch from the new season and now we’ve broken them into (helpful?) categories:

Sentence: Free to Go

Listen – First impressions of Ninja Slayer from Studio Trigger. It is streaming on Funimation and Hulu.

Listen – First impressions of Ghost in the Shell ARISE: Alternative Architecture from Production I.G. It is streaming on Funimation and Hulu.

Sentence: Lock ‘Em Up and Throw Away the Key

Listen – First impressions of Vampire Holmes from Studio! Cucuri.


Type-Moon Weekly News Roundup Supplemental (Second Best)

April 19, 2015

This is a quick supplemental Type-Moon Weekly News Roundup mostly because a metric TON of Fate/Grand Order information came out yesterday after I posted the regular weekly post. I will just link to this  in the regular news post on Saturday. If you have any suggestions for what to highlight on the Type-Moon Weekly News Roundup drop me a line via email or Twitter.

Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works #015 – When You Dream

April 18, 2015

hisui_icon_4040 If you have read the visual novels then you know that this episode was not going to end well.

This episode has a hard act to follow. It basically goes on right after we got a pretty powerful episode that was mostly new material. New material that was intriguing for new fans but mind-blowing for the older fans. Instead this episode knows it is got a boatload of feels surrounding the tortured life and horrific death of Illya. So in that regard it is safe. But it also gives us some new information about Illya and Berseker although it would be near impossible to beat what we learned about Caster. It still had enough to be a worthy successor to the last episode. It just hits different parts of the emotional spectrum. It also ties things a little more to Fate/Zero which I think will give this a little more kick to anyone who has only watched the Ufotable productions.
