Space Battleship Yamato 2199 – Episode 22: Out of the frying pan

This episode was what I expected last week’s episode to be. A mostly calm cool down episode dedicated more to character development and some fun moments here and there instead of spectacle. That being said, a lot of the developments from last episode made its way into this episode. All the stakes and political intrigue…

First Impressions: FLCL Alternative (FLCL 3)

A surprise thing happened on April Fools. FLCL Alternative’s first episode premiered on Toonami at midnight instead of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders. It was in Japanese with subtitles too, which was amazing. I, being a crazy person that had to wake up early in the morning on a Sunday and came home from an…

Space Battleship Yamato 2199: A Prison Planet

So, sorry for not putting as much work into this episode as I usually do. I just don’t have enough time to create a full post like I usually do. I’m going to Sakuracon and its also Easter Weekend. Usually, these would be too easy things, but I am a Lutheran. That means there is…

Space Battleship Yamato 2199: Episode 20 – Space Battle in the Clouds

Just like I mentioned last episode, this one is all about the spectacle again. Not that is a bad thing at all, because I love space fights. Even space battles that happen in space clouds. It was just amazing. Amazing to look at, amazing emotional weights, awesome space ship effects, and amazing fight choreography. Looking…

Winter 2018 Anime at the Half Way Point

Ok fine winter 2018. You can be a good season if you feel like it. I’m being honest here, there are some honestly great shows airing right now. And no, they are not just shows that started airing the fall, though that does help improve this season’s quality by quite a bit. So everyone should…

Space Battleship Yamato 2199: Episode 14 – Dead in Space

I think this week’s episode was the first time I have been disappointed by this show. That’s not because this episode was bad in anyway. It’s mainly because I’ve seen this style of episode done in better and I don’t like the solution of how this one came to an end. You see, this is…

Space Battleship Yamato 2199: Episode 12 – The Original Space Nazis?

There is so much to cover in this episode too, because so many things occurred. For one thing, I’m glad but a little surprised that so many arguments and discussions from the last episode, which had some arguments and discussions for the episode before that, took place in this episode. I really like this, because…

Space Battleship Yamato 2199: Episode 11 – War Time Complications

Remember last time when I said/thought that the war and political intrigue would happen in this episode? You shouldn’t be surprised about this episode at all then. This is exactly what it is. The complications of seeing an alien race humanity has been fighting against look and act the same as humans is something that…

Space Battleship Yamato 2199: Episode 10 – Frenemies

After watching last week’s episode and saying everything that is great about it, you think that this next episode would be a letdown. In some ways it is and some ways it isn’t. Episode 10 of Yamato 2199 is a lot less complicated when it comes to its themes and story then episode 9, but…

Space Battleship Yamato 2199: Episode 9 – What is life?

How do I even start talking about an episode like this? Yamato 2199 has been great through out it’s run so far, but what happens when an episode goes beyond the bounds of the level of great and becomes something else? Something Amazing. Something Intelligent. Something that will make you question a lot of things…
