ToraDora : Series Review

All in all, ToraDora easily climbed up to the list of my favorite shoujo animes because it was cute, light, interesting and truthful, albeit exagerrated on the violence part (It is an anime, after all). I particularly loved the last two episodes on how they closed the journey of the five main characters on a hopeful note. Personally though, I would have chosen a kiss as a final frame for Ryuji and Taiga after all they’ve been through instead of a classic head butt but if you bring a tiger and a dragon together, you have to expect something uncoventional. Two thumbs up for this series. If I had more thumbs, I would raise them all. How’s that for a recommendation?… Read More ToraDora : Series Review

Reasons you should binge on My Hero Academia (Part 1)

There are many things to like about this series, so much so that I risked going to work looking like a panda because I just couldn’t stop watching the episodes available on Netflix. Just to be clear, let me run down why I, for one, became an instant fan of the series. Be warned though, this is going to be a long post.… Read More Reasons you should binge on My Hero Academia (Part 1)

Nightflyers: Series Review

All in all,  I think Nightflyers could have fared better as a six episode series or even a movie. There was too much time devoted to a buildup that didn’t really pay off in the end, in a justifiable way at least. There was just too much fluff disguised in cool alien jargon. Unfortunately, these were only distractions from the truth that Nightflyers was a sub-par sci fi series despite the hype that surrounded it. … Read More Nightflyers: Series Review

You: Season 1 Review

All in all, I liked the single minded focus that You used in telling Joe and Beck’s story. It was an effective wake up call for social media enthusiasts about the dangers of oversharing. In the same vein, the series perfectly illustrated the term wolf in sheep’s clothing, which Joe basically was. He was a tormented soul looking for love but he was weird and twisted and he was willing to blur the lines between right and wrong to justify the evil things he has done. What happened to Beck can just as easily happen to anyone in this day and age where personal info is readily available. I could not wait for season 2, honestly.

Killing Eve: Season 1 review

All in all,  Killing Eve delivered a solid first season of murder and espionage but I felt like it could benefit from fleshing out the character of Eve some more to answer why she felt so connected to her nemesis. I’m all for women empowerment and seeing women take the lead in breakthrough series, but Killing Eve just feels like a regular off the mill espionage thriller, only supplanted with strong female characters to give a different feel. I may be in the minority but I’m not such a big fan. To each their own, I guess. … Read More Killing Eve: Season 1 review

The Smile Has Left Your Eyes: Korean Drama Review

All in all, I was completely blown away by the entire production. It was very simple but it was perfectly paced and set up just right. It had just the right amount of push and pull to keep audiences hooked and I, for one, was at the edge of my seat the entire time, rooting for a happy end for these three characters I have come to love in a small period of time. The Smile Has Left Your Eyes is quite different from what I would normally invest my time on but it was a series that left its mark on me. It was brilliant.… Read More The Smile Has Left Your Eyes: Korean Drama Review
