How Not to Summon a Demon Lord Ω: F*cking Monkey’s Paw.

Ah the monkey’s paw. That damnable object that gives you want you want, but always at some price. I’ve been lucky in my anime career to not cross paths with it often, but when I do it always ends up going the way you expect. Case in point with the anime we are talking about today. After the cut let’s take a dive into How Not to Summon a Demon Lord Ω

My reviews of the three adapted volumes can be found here, here and here.

Re-Dive: ReZero: Starting Live in Another World: Damn Fine Work

If there is one anime that can be credited with getting my to start blogging, or frankly to start watching anime seriously again. It would be ReZero. I’ve told this story before, but for those new to Shallow Dives, let me explain once more. Around 2016 I was pretty much ‘done’ with anime. I had watched it all throughout my childhood, but at that point I had fallen off pretty hard. Most of my favorite series were wrapped or close to wrapping, and I had long come down from my Gundam kick. There was no bad blood, but I felt I had gotten ‘my fill’ from the anime world. It wasn’t until a friend suggested that I check out this show, that the dominos starting falling once more. The rest, if you’ve been following this blog for close to three years now, is history.

And so last month, I actually sat down and re-watched the entire first season front to back, the first time I’ve done it since the original airing. Did it hold up? Was it as a good as I thought, or had time worn off some of the shine? Well after the cut let’s re-dive into one of the most beloved Isekai series of the last decade: ReZero: Starting Life in Another World

Check out my original thoughts here!

The Summer of Love III: Fate/Illya Season 1 Episodes 1-5: The Introduction Arc

The Summer of Love III begins! I’ve been wanting to get started on this series for a long time, and thankfully it hasn’t let me down. Now sadly Fate/Ilya’s story arcs don’t fit in as nicely as our previous outing so there might be some cross over, but hopefully we can keep that to a minimum. Either way it is time to crack open this infamous series, so after the cut let’s take a look at the Introduction Arc!

The Summer of Love III: A Fate/Illya Primer!

Hey guys

The Summer of Love III, our three month look at the series Fate/Kaleid Liner Prisma Illya will begin at the start of June. However before we get started I wanted to throw up a post, like I did with High School DxD and Date A Live to answer some questions and lay out how everything is going to go. Please note somethings are subject to change depending on life goes, but I’m pretty sure I can manage it. Let’s get into it after the cut!
