While usually in an anthology you have your good and bad segments here they felt quite even being created by the same staff but still dabbling in different kinds of "horror" each time. Problem is that there really wasn't anything that would make them stand out. The premises are not bad per se but with 30 minutes episodes being told in a straight forward narrative they can't seem to hit a sweet spot in addition to making almost all "twists" predictable.
Oh, did the actually cast Danes husband this season :smile:? This could be interesting.
And here I thought I was lucky because I fell three episodes behind... these damn cliffhangers :exploding_head:!
Didn't like how the show developed in it's first season and this continuation doesn't do it either for me with lazy AI exposition and contrived plot lines. Not going to finish this.
I mean it's SAO but damn this was a messy episode... The girl protecting Synthesis Two was savage but not only was the whole defense setup convoluted but also the power-levels all over the place.
I mean this was already a lame sitcom but this episode felt like a further dip in quality. Do they even remember their premise...
I cannot help but think this episode was made to bait people into start/continue watching if it were perceived positively because this is not the format for it nor should something like this be made this early into a show.While I liked the first 10 minutes and the duo of Cristin Milioti and Jake Johnson it just quickly turned into "cringe" as there was a major disconnect between what they wanted to tell and how they went about it in a video game context....A good point to drop this show tho.
I'm not sure why I even watched four episodes but this is it for me... It's a super generic MMORPG fantasy show which only selling point is the girls playing it (being as moe-blobbey as possible). It offers no plot to care about and the protagonists are not only clueless about the game but also just happen to be overpowered^2.

Another boring, stale and predictable entry Into The Dark... and that's even with it's padded runtime of 80mins (last 10 mins being a music video and bloopers...).
Here is hoping the next arc is better but I don't think they can manage to get out of the lazy writing mode they are in. It's not surprising they killed of Nighteye as they already fail to properly balance the existing quirks...

Ugh... I guess it is that kind of a show.
I have never really watched Star Trek (except the odd episode of DS9 and Voyager) but having watched every RLM episode about it I can only feel sorry for the die hard fans...
Yeah this is terrible. Nauseating concept (which makes hardly any sense nor is consistent), unfunny humor, lame ecchi and certainly the worst main duo I've seen in a long time... and somehow this gets 2 cours?!
I give this show one thing, it's ambitious in it's production but content wise it's terribly lackluster. Feels like Watanabe is on it's way to joining the ranks of eccentric elderly Japanese directors :rolling_eyes:...Set in the future one of it's early themes is the idea of AI song production VS that of humans but really it doesn't do much besides raising that question. Even more so the duo of "Carole & Tuesday" felt inhuman as even towards the end they felt like blank slates which magically create new songs over night... I mean it's not like they already overproduce popular music without AI and here they champion a duo which exist as singer/songwriter in the thousands today... After you get through what is basically the anime equivalent of a real world talent show it branches out to immigration topics (people of Mars vs. Earth) but everything t here feels forced and superficial (even stupid at times).And really that superficiality can be found everywhere, be it an unrequited love interest (which has 0 impact on the character) or a guy basically saying he is doing his last performance for them and that they carry his hopes only to not ever come up again (???) (heck - we have TWO stalkers)...Recommended if you like talent shows I guess..?
I really liked the tone of the first short in this but the other more narrative driven ones were kinda boring...
Damn, this was haunting.Killing the peeing guys cmn man...
This show still has some leniency from me but why are people still hyping this..? Unlike previous episodes we got less inappropriate flashbacks but it still takes a character to call them out for standing around. But guess what they went on to do after finally bursting the walls down to the bad guy #1 :angry:? This pacing just makes everything feel hollow (hope it was worth it for the movie). The fights are all in the same boring hallway which apparently is also quite easily broken into from above LOL and involves tons of scene blocking with endless spikes and other lazy ways to not having to animate much on screen. Overhaul's powers are also on-demand adjusted as it's constantly scaled down what he apparently can do just so that the "must-safe-loli-at-all-cost-gang" can compete just disintegrate everyone OK?. Imagine having your final wishes be disrespected and not getting further away than 10 yards from the action and they are not even making excuses..
Starts out OK with plenty of kills (first 15 mins or so) but really is just a big mess and for some weird reason the mask he is wearing in the promotional stuff hardly shows up and it's lame a$$ make-up instead (which is for what they were AIMING a hige hindrance). The camera work includes some really weird shots (and "pointy" ones) making this quite unatmospheric, the twist is unearned I'd rather have had him supernatural as anything other makes still no sense and frankly it suffers the usual dumb characters and incompetent policeforce issue...
Run off the mill chunibyo show that starts out high-energy but is overall quite uneven in entertainment.
Jesus! Cool it with the flashbacks will ya?
Both the writer and director of this are not total unkowns to the genre so seeing them making this piece of shit is just sad. Since the slasher and thriller elements are totally underdeveloped we instead are treated to a lot of "gay culture" stuff for the runtime which made it really odd to watch as I could not tell the intent behind it. If it was really aiming for representation it probably wouldn't have had all these vapid characters in it but they probably just didn't care and thought that male nudity and a killer in a puppy costume was enough to warrant them an audience... Anyhow - sadly the killer in this is just who you would expect boy would this scenario not work in the real world. I would also bet that this was not written with New Year's Eve im mind as it's protrayal is completly schizophrenic to the cast.
Seems kinda silly but dropped after Episode 9... At this point it's just a melodramatic slog where everyone's parents are abusive in some way or another. But thank god there is Maki to fix things who is apparently also an empath in addition to already being the "gifted" tennis ace of the show. Kanako also is handled very weirdly making her mainly a fujoshi insert...
Dropped at three episodes. It's not the worst show you can pick but it hardly feels original... it's like a mashup of anime which were popular in the US in the 2000s coupled with some other stuff he did. Go back and watch those instead as they have a lot more character.

Damn, when I watched the movie I figured I'm still cool with the show but damn this season is bad and this expo dump especially.
Dang, "Two Pink Doors" had some really dark, dark humor.
While this isn't necessarily showing it's budget early on with a decent "mythology" opener and goofs around social media BS it certainly deflates quickly into a generic done to death wanna be spooky movie. Disappointing.
