We are always biased – Kino’s Journey (2017) Watch Eulogy

Do you think it’s possible to walk into any sort of medium completely unbiased? This is kind of a trick question, because I don’t think it’s possible at all. The closest way that would be the case if we watch or read something at a really young age. When we were kids, we could walk…

Space Battleship Yamato 2199: Episode 3 – Boom Shakalaka

Can I just tell you how great this show is? I mean really. Yes, I am cheating a little bit here because I’ve seen it before and am clearly biased, but I really mean it? Even with a pretty standard episode like this one, this show fills up gaps with characterization that not many shows…

Kino’s Journey (2017) – Episode 7: Guns, guns everywhere

Ok, I’ve been trying to not let it bother me for a while, but this Kino’s Journey series is really starting to irritate me. Why? It’s inconsistent and because it turns into badly made self-insert fiction half of the time. (It’s only half, because episode three partially counts). I don’t know about you, but singular…

Space Battleship Yamato 2199: Episodes 1 and 2

Remember when I said I wouldn’t be making episodic reviews again? Yeah, don’t pay attention to that. I am a big fat liar. In this case though, I don’t mind being a liar. Having the dubbed version of this show appear on Funimation and the subbed version on Crunchyroll is a surprise that cannot be…

Kino’s Journey (2017): Episode 6 – Luck is all you need

From episode to episode basis, I feel like all of Kino’s Journey’s sudden left curve episodes are going to happen on even numbered episodes. Episode 2 was the colosseum episode that lead to the death of an entire country, episode 4 wasn’t as bad as episode 2 but similar things happened with Shizu, who was…

Kino’s Journey (2017): Episode 5 – Liar, Liar, pants on fire

I’m beginning to think that this series is following the opposite of the adage of the older Star Trek films. You know, the whole “even numbers being good and odd numbers being bad” thing. From what I’ve seen before, this show has had three solid episodes (1,3, and 5), one really bad one (2), and…

Kino’s Journey (2017): Episode Three – Missed Dichotomy

From watching this episode, I think I am getting a realization about what this series is going to be. If the path continues, the show is pulling double duty on developing different countries and Kino at the same time, which may be hard in only a thirty-minute time slot. This might be hurting some of…

Kino’s Journey (2017) – Episode 2: A Tale of Two Kinos

Hello everyone, welcome to the second installment of Kino Monday. Last time was a great installment to the Kino lore that I’ve never seen before. This time is a re-adaptation of a story line that was a part of the original series. The main difference here is the arc in the original series was two…

Kino’s Journey – The Animated Series: Episode 1

Hello everyone, welcome to my first and probably last portion of episodic reviews that I will ever do. Kino’s Journey is something special for me and considering that I know what kind of show this is going to be, because I watched the original, then that opens up some avenues that no other show has…
