By its end, Takemichi was basically back to where the series started, and yet because of everything he discovered about Toman, it would be interesting how he could influence the future with a lengthened stay in the past. Will he be able to save everyone? Should I already get started on the manga or should I suffer in excitement until the second season is confirmed? All in all, a highly recommended series. I binged it in a day. It’s that good.

It was a brutal battle that took everything out of the students. Even the normally unflappable Todoroki had difficulty figuring out how to suppress their powerful enemy. No one came out of it unscathed but it was a giant leap when it came to teamwork. From the first and second time they were attacked by big time villains, Class 1-A now knew their strengths and easily teamed up to complement each other’s strengths.

All in all, I would still recommend for Netflix to pick up the series for a second season. We have so much more mythical creatures to explore. Plus, there was too much backstory to unpack in just six half hour episodes. If Trese finds it in her heart to muster even a bit of enthusiasm for anything, Netflix should give her a chance to continue her journey.

The Way of the House Husband is really funny as it depicts Tatsu’s complete 360 from his life of crime. What’s more, he makes a career out of being a house husband and fully commits to the role. From getting bargains to earning loyalty card points, to doing DIY projects, attending cooking class and even going to the gym with his new buddies — middle aged housewives who have welcomed Tatsu into their fold.

I had such high hopes for Sweet Home … such high hopes. I was writing about this series long before it premiered on Netflix but now that its over, I feel somewhat shortchanged. It may be an unpopular opinion but I was wishing that Sweet Home could have been more than a 10-episode setup for the second season.

By its end, we were left with even more questions, and this makes us clamor immediately for a second season. All in all, Alice in Borderland had a lot going for it — an intelligent plot, compelling and rootable characters, mind bending twists and striking visuals, and it made use of each elements effectively. That is brilliance for you.
