The second half of Tokyo Revengers Season 1 was all about loyalty and friendship. Baji to the Founding Members, Chifuyu to Baji, and on the flipside was pure treachery, and at its center was Kisaki. While episodes 1-13 was filled with multiple deaths, the continuation left no doubt that the Tokyo Manji gang is still faced with even more tragedy in its past and in its future. I have half a mind to read the manga now to answer all of my questions but I fear that it will destroy the suspense that I’ve built up for the anime.
rom being an exciting and compelling binge, this series was also a well crafted social commentary about humans and the extent of their imperfections. It urged viewers to examine society from a different lens. Were the games a kindness or cruelty for its participants? Did it save them from their misery or were their deaths a welcome respite from their drudgery?
At the end of the midseason finale, fans would definitely need a moment to debrief and process everything that has happened. In as much as fans mourned the loss of Nairobi last season, this season proved that its going out with a bang and it doesn’t care about your feelings — or your biases, and its all for the stake of this story. This early, we already know that there will be no winners in this heist, even if they get the gold out. one thing’s for sure. What a glorious ending it will be.
So, here’s the deal. It took me the arrival of the fifth season before I resumed watching Money […]
I was blown away by Demon Slayer: Mugen Train because of the beautiful and consistent animation all throughout. There was no bad panel, not even one. The use 3D in combination with 2D animation was seamlessly crafted. The fight scenes never missed a beat. The use of perfect background music to accompany each scene made me ugly cry 25 percent of the movie and kept me suspended in suspense the remainder of the time.
It really hits viewers in the gut, not only because the delicious food on display are mouth watering. The scenes from the food preparation, as well as the stories behind them makes the audience yearn for the days that they can travel back to Ilocos to experience the dishes for themselves. The documentary gives faces to the people behind the extraordinary food that provides comfort and joy like no other. In the same vein, it is heartbreaking to learn of their challenges during this pandemic, which is ill deserved for these people whose joy is cooking.
ur Space raises several relationship issues — friendship, romance and the fine line in between. I appreciated the repartee but by its end I was just as tired about the argument as the characters were. The cinematography was on point. The dialogue was intelligent but by its end, it left me more frustrated than satisfied. Finally, it was over. It felt like I was the one stepping out of a bad breakup. Good one, director David Olson and screenwriter Joem Antonio.
Its intended to be funny, true. But I was unsure what message filmmaker Kevin Mayuga wanted to get across. Humor can be kind of dangerous when it is taken out of context. Was the film promoting drugs as a means to escape the toils of life? Even though seeing their maid passed out from her high made the kids realize how they put her through the ringer, leading to their remorse and reform, was the proper ending to bond over a weed session?
It was a beautiful tribute to one of our nation’s heroes. Director Myra Aquino deserves much praise for this respectful and compelling account of Kapampangan history. Congrats!
All in all, Ang Pagdadalaga ni Lola Mayumi was an effective tongue in cheek take on sex, virginity and everything in between. Bottom line, see a therapist when you need to so you don’t spend close to P10,000 for services not rendered. LOL.
