Tsurune Episode 5 – Yawatashi

Genre: Drama; Sports; School Studio: Kyoto Animation I realize that most of my readers don’t watch Tsurune. This isn’t very surprising and I fully expected it when I started reviewing the show.

There’s no old maxim in the anime community that it takes a full 3 episodes to be able to truly appreciate a show and determine if it’s worth your time. Or 25% of a single cour season. I’m not sure if this rule applies to other forms of media or not but I’ve only heard...

Tsurune Episode 4 – Good Form

Genre: Drama; Sports; School Studio: Kyoto Animation It is not entirely impossible that I spent half the episode trying to come up with some type of archery pun for the title. I failed. I’m sorry. It hurts me considerably more than it hurts you… And you know, at first I was scolding myself for not paying...

Loving Criticism

You know guys, it’s not always all or nothing. I can love a show and dislike some aspects of it. I can find a specific episode super boring and still think the series is great as a whole. I can also dislike a show and think that it has great things going for it and...
