Fruits Basket 2019 Banner

For White Day, the Somas are treating Tohru to a trip to the hot springs. It was Momiji’s idea, but Yuki and eventually Kyo agree to come too.

This was episode 11 of the remake of Fruits Basket. I’ve been wondering for several weeks now exactly how long this series was going to be. Well, some information has finally leaked out and it looks like there will be sixty-three episodes… I had no idea the commitment I was getting myself into when I agreed to review this series. I’m just hoping it’s not in one go. I like it, but I will need a break.

Fairy Gone (Episode 10) – Cursed Child

Fairy Gone Title

Dorothea comes to terms with the failed mission and the deaths of their colleagues. Marlya takes it pretty hard, believing that she is cursed and death follows her.

What did you watch?

Last weeks episode was by far the best one yet, and it still is. This was episode 10 of Fairy Gone and while it did spend some time developing the characters, it certainly didn’t live up to the excitement of the previous episode. Still, we’re getting pretty close to the end of the first cour/season so there’s going to be some significant developments in the next couple of episodes.

Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba (Episode 10) – Together Forever

Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Title

Tanjiro may have mortally wounded the demon with eyes in his hands, but he’s not going to go down meekly. Meanwhile, Nezuko steps back into battle against Susamaru!

What did you watch?

Episode 10 of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba followed on immediately after episode 9. This is definitely a series that loves a good cliffhanger. My immediate concern is for my new demon girl Susamaru. She’s clearly on the wrong side and I’m not that optimistic that she’ll get through this episode unscathed. Best I can hope for is that she manages to run away, although Kibutsuji probably wouldn’t like that either…

Fruits Basket (Episode 10) – It’s Valentine’s, After All

Fruits Basket 2019 Banner

It’s Valentine’s Day and Kyo is not his usual violent self! He can’t even bring himself to fight Yuki! Could it have anything to do with Kagura?

What did you watch?

I just watched Fruits Basket episode 10 and there’s still no news about how long the series will be. Also, given how the story meanders along, there’s no way of telling how much more there is. I guess we’ve just got to sit tight and see where it takes us, and as long as it stays this good, I wouldn’t mind if it were a hundred episodes long.

Fairy Gone (Episode 9) – Rolling Stones and Seven Knights

Fairy Gone Title

Following Schwartz Diese’s bravery during the assassination attempt of the Prime Minister, he is to be rewarded with a Fairy Weapon and Dorothea is tasked with transporting it to his home.

What did you watch?

After eight weeks of slow build up, sitting around in bars, and falling asleep at work, something is finally starting to happen and it’s only episode 9 of Fairy Gone. It was by no means perfect, but it was a massive relief to actually enjoy an episode. I’m not sure if it’ll be enough to make me want to return for the second half of the season, but it was a step in the right direction.
