Review: To Your Eternity also known as Fumetsu no Anata e is a supernatural/adventure drama series that was first released in the spring 2021 season and consisted of 20 episodes. The premise to this story is a rather unusual one. The main character begins life as an orb which is cast into Earth. The orb is capable of changing forms when it makes contact with objects or living beings. The first form it takes is that of a rock when it lands on the ground. Over time as the temperature rises...

This is the third season of the Higurashi franchise and unlike the previous two seasons it takes on a much light hearted tone. There are more fan service moments and general comedy that is not often seen in the main story so is really something that caters to the fans. Sandwiched between the filler though is a more serious story that centres on Rika and her making a key decision. All in all it is a fairly enjoyable ride but nothing too groundbreaking. Review: Whey They Cry: Rei also...

In the this part of the prequal series I will look at the sequel of the first Evangelion Rebuild movie; Evangelion 2.22 You Can (Not) Advance. Released in 2009 I would argue this was the strongest film in the entire Rebuild series. The balance in the story and action was the best out of the four movies plus the twists to the original Neon Genesis Evangelion storyline made this an interesting watch for newcomers and veterans alike. Despite what my review says (which was written when I had not...
Episode 3 Triumphant from gaining her new found treasure Jahy-sama imagines that everyone will grovel to her greatness!

In this prequel watch we take a look at the second season of Higurashi series which answers a lot of the questions raised in the first season. In many ways I found Kai to be the true end and felt the subsequent seasons were, in essence, money grabs as entertaining as they were. If you want to get the complete story to Higurashi story then you need to watch this along with season one. Review: Whey They Cry: Kai otherwise known as Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai is a supernatural/thriller...
In the this part of the prequal series I will look into the first Evangelion Rebuild movie; Evangelion 1.11 You Are (Not) Alone. Released in 2007 this was supposed to be a reboot of the original Neon Genesis Evangelion. The production values in this series was outstanding and even the original movie is stunning to this day. Whilst the first two movies broadly followed the original anime series the last two take the series into entirely new territory. Review: Evangelion: 1.0 You Are...
