Blame!

With her remote community face the real threat of starvation, Zuru heads out into the infinite city in search of food. Endless tunnels and passageways stretch out in every direction, deserted and desolate. Safeguards monitor the surroundings, checking for threats. The city is willing and able to defend itself.

Set in the distant future, the infinite city grows and adapts, maintained by automated machines and processes. The Net Terminal Gene once enabled humanity to control the city and live a carefree existence, but that has long been lost.

Zuru’s tiny community exists within a blind spot of the Safeguard, but that can’t last forever. Dwindling food supplies and a desire to create a better life drive them to take drastic measures, but the Safeguard is ready and waiting. A mysterious wanderer rescues Zuru and offers hope for the future.

One Punch Man – Season One

Saitama is your average run of the mill guy. He collects coupons to make the most of his limited income and organises his life to utilise regular discounts and special offers. Oh, and he can defeat any opponent with a single punch.

Gurren Lagann – Season One

Simon is a digger. He lives in a small subterranean community, making tunnels and uncovering artefacts buried within the ground. Viewed as a bit of an odd bod, he aligns himself with the charismatic delinquent, Kamina who has dreams of going up to the surface.

Out of the blue, a giant mecha falls through the cavern ceiling and starts attacking the humans. A beautiful girl armed with a massive gun follows and fights back. Kamina rushes to help, but can’t do much with his katana against such a large mecha.

Things are looking bad until Simon leads them up one of his tunnels and shows them a small mecha he discovered. They battle their way to the surface, a desolate barren wasteland. There they capture another mecha and fight against the evil overlords that prowl the surface, hunting humans. Continue reading “Gurren Lagann – Season One”

Sword Art Online – Season One

I’ve looked around the internet and Sword Art Online (SAO) seems to be fairly polarising. Well, I’m going to throw my hate firmly into one camp. I loved it. Every single minute of it. I loved the characters, the virtual worlds, the sword fights, the awesome story twists, and the relationships within.

There is one thing I should probably say before I get too into this. I was literally forced to watch more than half of this series overnight, staying up until 6:30 in the morning. There is a chance that my opinion has been swayed by the total immersive viewing experience, but I doubt it. I will go into more details in my Monthly Review, I promise. Now, let’s get back to SAO.

The Seven Deadly Sins – Signs of Holy War

Netflix pulled me back to Britannia with what I thought was season two. I was excited to get back into things, expecting deadlier demons and more evil Holy Knights with insane special abilities. Alas, it was not to be.

Signs of Holy War is not season two. Admittedly, Netflix didn’t say it was. It was my fault. I jumped to a conclusion and now I live with the repercussions of that decision, but I still love Netflix. All that said, it is a four-part mini-series set between season one and season two. So, more Meliodas and his lecherous ways. More Sins. Continue reading “The Seven Deadly Sins – Signs of Holy War”
