Carole & Tuesday Episode 4: Taking the First Step

This week we see the budding musicians make their first music video. Even if the outcome was already determined from the start, it's nice to see how everyone is willing to give their efforts. It might be a filler episode to some and I get that. Not all shows rely heavily on pushing the story… Continue reading Carole & Tuesday Episode 4: Taking the First Step

Carole & Tuesday Episode 3: Challenging the System

Don't ever mess with Tuesday. She wants to make music cause she loves to. Block her way she can screw you over. Carole can do the same but I never expected the her to do it. I have my respect for Tuesday now. Looks are deceiving at first glance. Going back, being in the highest… Continue reading Carole & Tuesday Episode 3: Challenging the System

Carole & Tuesday Episode 2: New Opportunities

For a fictional world set in Mars, it's no different to our own world currently. What's interesting to see is that despite the popularity of AI, it is still built on music created by humans. This will most likely go on the argument on which is better: AI-generated music? Or real music? Bit-by-bit we get… Continue reading Carole & Tuesday Episode 2: New Opportunities

Carole & Tuesday Episode 1: Getting into the Music

This show has been on my most anticipated for this season. And it did! For a futuristic setting, it shows a middle ground for the main leads. Majority of the human race heavily relies on AI to the point their own lives is dominated by them. Two women wants to stir things up. Tuesday ran… Continue reading Carole & Tuesday Episode 1: Getting into the Music

Boogiepop wa Warawanai Episode 18: Accepting Who You Are

The finale for Boogiepop ended on a good note. If you managed to complete this show without ever getting confused, I commend your efforts. It took a bunch of twists and turns where some was worth the payoff and some don't. The last arc for this adaptation was all about how past events affects a… Continue reading Boogiepop wa Warawanai Episode 18: Accepting Who You Are

Boogiepop wa Warawanai Episode 17: Tracing Your Inner Self

It's almost the end. The final arc gives us a look of the character's innermost mindset when it comes to their mistakes. Niitoki seems to have it figured out. And Boogiepop even engages with one of the affected, namely Sakiko. I mostly see her as a minor character for the sake of this arc but… Continue reading Boogiepop wa Warawanai Episode 17: Tracing Your Inner Self

Boogiepop wa Warawanai Episode 16: It Comes From the Self

We're getting slightly psychological here. King of Distortion doesn't have a permanent identity in the first place because it varies from person to person. In one conversation, it's simply a split personality. Some believe, some don't. It's part of a person's clinging desires who wanted it to be real. I would love to eat this… Continue reading Boogiepop wa Warawanai Episode 16: It Comes From the Self

Boogiepop wa Warawanai Episode 15: The Past Haunts You

King of Distortion loves to play on a person's dreams, no? We still don't know the true objective of why he's doing it in the first place. Also, he doesn't seem to have a permanent identity. He possesses people who are involved in the past of a victim. The only notable difference is the eyes.… Continue reading Boogiepop wa Warawanai Episode 15: The Past Haunts You

Boogiepop wa Warawanai Episode 14: Familiar and New Faces

We have now reached the last arc for this show. Going back to the usual weekly format felt so different from the 4-episode release. The story is going to the straightforward approach again, and I don't mind. Despite its choices, it was able to keep you looking forward to the next episode. Whoever designed this… Continue reading Boogiepop wa Warawanai Episode 14: Familiar and New Faces

Boogiepop wa Warawanai Episode 10 – 13: Unexpected Turn of Events

I never expected an entire arc to drop at once. Did something happen? Introductions aside, this story is the prequel to the first two. A lot of nods are seen, more information given, and most importantly, backstory. This is actually a good move for an anime like Boogiepop. I didn't actually expect to like this… Continue reading Boogiepop wa Warawanai Episode 10 – 13: Unexpected Turn of Events
