Frieden – 11 [Mùa đông ở vùng đất phương Bắc]
This is a pretty chill episode of Frieren, reasonable and completely fine after the mid-season climax we got in the past 2 episodes. It’s all about taking a moment to enjoy life, being thanked by those they saved, seeing the impact of their actions on those around them as families finally receive the bodies of those they saved. their loved ones. Oh and burgers, giant burgers. The most interesting thing about the episode I’d say is Kraft, the first elf we meet besides Frieren. With him, we get a completely different view of what it means to live that long, as well as how indifferent they can be about it. Talk about not knowing each other, act like the past 80 years are “new news,” and talk about meeting again in a few centuries. It’s great. The only thing that makes me feel lacking is their compliments, desperation, and finding a way to get it. Kraft sought it in his Goddess while Frieren got it from her adventurer friends, especially Heiter. While it’s great that she puts so much care into Heiter’s opinion, I don’t really vibe with the idea that we live our lives looking for praise from others. Maybe it’s just my perspective is different, because I usually only care about whether I think what I’m doing is good enough, and praise from others is good and affirmations are not. I search. Because of that, Frieren is a bit out of place for me here. However, even as time passed, those 6 months when we gradually saw them change in the montage like one by one praying over a meal, was great. Still a very well put together episode.
Undead Unluck – 7 [Dream]
Despite appearing so early, this has always been one of my favorite Undead Unluck arcs. Partly because it’s an incredibly creative game, the way it uses zombies as bad luck missiles while Andy arranges armchair champions for them to attack Spoil. Addresses how Fuuko has to love her goals for it to work, which she achieves after hearing about the history of this town, and it becomes very interesting. Meanwhile, the emotional core of the fight, everything with the teacher and the children, the desire to wear a wedding dress and finally get it and use it to create the biggest bad luck bomb possible with Fuuko while Shen uses her abilities to stop the kids from chasing after her, it’s truly heartwarming. The presentation goes a long way in making it emotionally engaging, the running through the sunflower fields, the VA work, the quick takes which I loved, everything. David Productions is doing great. We then get to Stage 2 with Spoil, he absorbs all the zombies, which eventually leads to Fuuko’s “I have a dream” speech while Spoil argues the necessity of survival. at his. It’s all solid stuff that I enjoy doing, doing short shounen stories on a regular basis and doing them solidly. There’s not much new here yet, the series hasn’t strayed from its path for a while, but it’s here that Undead Unluck finds what it wants to do.
Medicine preparation diary – 6 [Bữa tiệc trong vườn
Cô ấy đã nói câu đó! Mao Mao cho biết dòng! Cũng thú vị như âm mưu chính trị xung quanh việc Mao Mao tìm thuốc độc, và có rất nhiều điều xảy ra ở đó với việc cô phối ngẫu loli bị dị ứng và trợ lý của cô ấy cố tình làm hỏng mọi thứ để làm cô ấy xấu hổ, thực ra tất cả những khoảnh khắc nhỏ hơn trong tập này mà tôi rất thích hầu hết. Mao Mao thu thập những chiếc kẹp tóc trong khi không hiểu ý nghĩa của chúng, và tôi cũng không công bằng, sự khác biệt trong cách ứng xử của cô ấy khi thử hương vị so với những người thử nghiệm khác và cách những người xem phản ứng, những thiếu nữ khác sợ cô ấy như thế nào, thậm chí cô ấy còn phát điên lên khi nghĩ đến việc uống thuốc độc như một kẻ khổ dâm chết tiệt và thưởng thức những món ăn ngon. Tôi dự kiến tuần tới sẽ đi sâu vào chính trị hơn, nhưng tất cả những khoảnh khắc nhỏ đó đã thực sự thu hút tôi và tôi đánh giá cao Nhật ký bào chế thuốc vì đã đưa chúng vào.
SpyXFamily S2 – 6 [Con tàu du lịch sang trọng đáng sợ]
Yor did something, she did it! I was surprised how much this episode focused on Yor. I was fully prepared for SpyXFamily to split our time on this cruise between her and Anya/Loid, and to be fair they still got some screen time. But even when they appear, their appearance is still focused on Yor. How to avoid Loid from seeing her, how to help her, how can they intersect. That’s great. This arc is everything I’ve wanted from a Yor-centric arc since season 1. She becomes a badass, taking down assassins silently and efficiently, her head swiveling to Catch the smallest movements like a hawk, knock them down with buttons or broken arms. It’s great! And that’s not all she does either, she talks to Mrs. Gretcher about enjoying Tuesday with her family, or how Yor seems out of place in this business. I like the involvement of the Gretcher family in this and not just the faceless “customers”. As for Anya and Loid, like I said, their joke is mainly about not letting Loid see Yor at work. This is pretty funny, Loid is trying to be the most “exciting dad” while completely missing the point of a vacation by treating “relaxation” like a job. The whole joke about “Being the role, being the best dad” had me giggling for a while. So, good episode.
Shangri-La Frontier – 7 [Remnant of the Divinity: The Aberrant Loser]
Shangri-La this week… okay? There’s not much more to say, it’ll be brief. I like that the pencil is actually taken down. Since Shangri-la doesn’t have a “death game” aspect like many other MMO anime, it’s completely normal for characters to die and then revive later with only their self-esteem damaged. Maybe that takes away the tension for some, but I consider Shangri-La more like a popcorn action series because it was never that tense in the first place. I will say that I don’t care much about the “trial” they have going on. This was supposed to be a level 80 quest where he fought monsters that were far beyond him, but here he was completing it anyway. Some of the explanations, watching him figure out the mechanics and things like that, were great and made it work. But it seems to me that Shangri-La is breaking the rules of an “MMO” a bit here.
Goblin Slayer S2 – 7 [Jungle Cruise]
Goblin Slayer is finally back to doing what it does best: D&D dungeon crawling to slay goblins with clever tactics. Sending a fake boat ahead to lure ambushes, figuring out plans to poison the water, paying attention to small details like goblins being better armed than necessary, and generally manipulating Put your knowledge to good use. It was all fun, I enjoyed it. Goblin Slayer also does a little better with the individual quiet moments this week, such as High Elf Archer and her sister, Priestess’s reaction to what the elves are doing, it’s even Real attempt at the Elven language! Of course, Frieren does most of these things, such as the age difference between their races. But I will commend Goblin Slayer for trying to give more emotional depth to the characters with hints about the real reason they fell in love with Goblin Slayer, even if it immediately cuts it short with Close-up shot of a girl’s thighs. So yeah, it feels like Goblin Slayer is returning to what I watch: Fantasy Doom-Guy killing goblins.
Pass – 7 [Thiếu phơi sáng] – CANCEL
I hate to say it but… I’m done with Overtake. There’s only so much repetitive horror movies I can handle, there’s only so much it can bring up the same plot point over and over again without ever actually being resolved. There are some things that give me hope, like Haruka slowly understanding Kouya’s perspective and things like that. But I just threw this one picture in our faces over and over again, causing them to lose sponsorship or just go to hell with their lives without ever doing anything to try to get over it. Meanwhile, Overtake robs us of our emotional highs by taking away all the big rewards and attaching them to something unrelated. It’s trying to have its cake and eat it, but it’s not achieving anything. So… I’m done. I won’t let Overtake have any more time.
MF Ghost – 7 [The Man In The 4 Car] – DROPPED
MF Ghost is similar in place, only worse. At least Overtake has, and maybe I’m still running out of patience with it, the potential to be good, MF Ghost doesn’t have it. I’m done with these close up butt shots, I’m done with the creepy jockey who only dates 17 year olds and makes it clear he “likes them young”, I’m done with no What happens in this race until the last 3 minutes of the episode race. I would get more benefit from turning on Eurobeat music and reading a book for 30 minutes than from watching this show.
