Noblesse ep 7 – Crushing

YES! This week’s Noblesse was largely back to the school-themed nonsense and it was great! This is what I signed up for. There was still a bit of a serious moment at the end there but even that worked out and was tempered with levity. I physically went into the office for the first time...

The Pet Girl of Sakurasou was a Sweet but Uncomfortable Experience

Did you want to live on campus when you went to high school? I did. It sounds so awesome! Being able to pack your things up and get a bit of independence and freedom in your highschool days but without all the responsibility of paying rent or doing everything for yourself. It’s the perfect compromise....

Noblesse ep 6 – A House Full of Deres

So far Noblesse has been a wacky school set comedy, a tense supernatural action series and this week, it decides to be a touching sentiment drame de moeurs. Google refused to tell me how to say that in English. I’m a little mad at her now. Yes, Google is a her. This sort of mixing...

Noblesse ep 5 – Delicious Raw Ramen

I’m not gonna lie, it wasn’t easy finding a follow up to the heavenly poetry that was last week’s Noblesse post title. I realize that I failed. But to be fair, it was an impossible task. Still, I think I managed to accurately capture my favourite part of the episode. And it’s something I really...

Are Anime High Schools Better Than Real Life?

This one is going to be a purely theoretical post folks. I haven’t been in high school for a minute now and I have never ever been to Japanese high school but I did attend quite a few different ones in several countries so I have a good overview of some of the basics. Really...

Noblesse ep 4 – Regis! You Giant Bag ‘o Butts

I’m not the deepest person out there. I can be occasionally superficial. No, no it’s true. I know it. Please take a minute to sit down and recover from the shock. In the early scenes of this week’s Noblesse, like in the first 4 minutes, I thought to myself, hmmmm… Tao and Takeo are both...

Noblesse ep 3 – Tech Bros

Alright, it’s been two episodes now and I feel safe with Noblesse. It is definitely not taking itself too seriously. It does weave in more serious action threads but the bulk of the episode remains just silly fun. And I love it. I’m not sure what the fate of the anime will be but if...
