Redo of Healer: Confident, Courageous, and Full of Fluids

The most controversial anime of winter 2021 didn’t end up being the case, mostly because people care more about bad looking CGI titans, or a character who is clearly at the start of a long journey of redemption. Still, that doesn’t mean we can’t discuss this series, so after the cut let’s take a dive into Redo of Healer.

My thoughts on episode 2 of the series are right here.

Noblesse: Where Good turns out to be Great!

Out of everything I’ve watched in 2020. This is the anime that was the most surprising one of them all. Not because it was some fantastic work, but because it was completely confident in just being ‘good enough.” And considering how the other Webtoons ended up… Either way, after the cut let’s take a dive into the anime series Noblesse!

Berserk: The Golden Age Arc Part 3: Hold my beer, George R.R Martin

And now we have finally come to it. The last movie of the trilogy.

Anime has had many amazing moments, moments that make you go ‘what the fuck.’ The End of Evangelion comes to mind as one of the most infamous. And there are also smaller examples such as the beginning of Elfen Lied, or the final episode of Beyblade’s second season. However, none of them compare, to the events of the final part of Berserk, yes even Evangelion. Let’s not bury the lead and get right into the final movie: The Advent after the cut.

Berserk: The Golden Age Arc Part 2: Rebound Sex no Jutsu

Now that the players and story have been set up, what happens next and most of all: is it good?

Berserk: The Golden Age Arc Part 1: The CGI Sucks, we know.

Well, I’m going to have to talk about something else for the third-year anniversary.

This has been a film series I’ve been trying to get to for a year now, but it kept getting put off longer and longer. This week though a buddy of mine wanted a movie to watch and I figured it would be a perfect time to get to it. Let’s not waste any more time than I have. After the cut let’s get into the first movie of Berserk: The Golden Age Arc: The Egg of the King.

Goblin Slayer Volume 4: 22 Short Stories about Goblins

Our look at the light volumes of Goblin Slayer continues! It’s been quite a while since we last dived into this series. I decided that instead of ping ponging between three different stories like I had been, I would instead focus on one at a time. Having just finished our look at How NOT to Summon a Demon Lord, I decided it that this would be next! Let’s not waste anytime, and after the cut dive into the fourth volume of Goblin Slayer.

OK, not 22 stories, but I wanted the Simpsons reference.

Mirai Nikki Episodes 13-26 + Redial: Seeing what Sticks

In the year and half I have been running Shallow Dives in Anime, there have been only a handful of anime that have really left me thinking about how I feel about them, that had been a real challenge to form an opinion on. Shinmai Maou no Testament is the first, Chivalry of a Failed Knight is the second. Today, I found the third.

It’s taken me days of pondering and thinking to pull together my thoughts on this show, and now I’m finally able to do so. Join me after the cut as I give my thoughts on the second half of Mirai Nikki or The Future Diary.

(NSFW picture up ahead)

(Check out my thoughts on the first half right here!)

Mirai Nikki Episodes 1-12: Just me and my Yandere

For years a friend of mine has been pestering me to watch this show, saying that I would really enjoy it, and that it was a fun wild ride. I always had something come up though, either other shows, or real life. Now with the world on literal pause, I thought it would be perfect time to finally see what the fuss was about. Now that I’ve watched about half the series, I thought it was time to give out my thoughts. Join me after the cut as I dive into the first half of the infamous series Mirai Nikki or Future Diary

On my Radar for Spring 2020: With Deepest Respect to No Game No Life

Winter 2020 has been a very meh affair. While it has been good for me to watch some shows that have been on the list, that won’t be the case with Spring 2020. The season is looking to be absolutely stacked (though a little less with ReZero being delayed), with so many series getting their second seasons. Expect this list to change, but let’s not waste anytime, join me after the cut as I tell you whats on my radar for Spring 2020!
