Fate/Extra: Last Encore – Season Two

What did you watch and why? I’ve had mixed feelings with the whole Fate series. Earlier in the year, I watched the first season and it left things wide open, so when the second season appeared, I felt like I had to finish things off.

One line pitch! The spirits of ancient heroes fight in a digital world that is the last bastion of humanity…

What’s it really about? Who the hell knows? We join the characters from the end of season one as they ascend to the sixth level, where the guardian awaits them. There’s a lot of talking, mostly one-sided as everyone seems to be happy to not interrupt each other. Then there’s a couple of massive attacks and it’s all over…

Overlord – Season Three

What did you watch and why? I loved the first two seasons of Overlord, so of course, I was back for the third. It’s dark and gritty, and really, we’re seeing it all from the side of the villain. He is the villain, right?

One line pitch! Overpowered undead sorcerer king starts down a path to conquer the world…

What’s it really about? A gamer that was transported to a world similar to the MMORPG he was playing searches for other gamers from the real world. In an attempt to find them he attempts to get noticed by taking over the world… There are undead armies, goblin hordes, terrifying demons, and those are all on his side.

Magical Girl Raising Project – Season One

What did you watch and why? Again, I was looking for something safe to watch while the kids were around. It had cute animation and magical girls… and oh no… not again!

One line pitch! Cute girls with magical powers murder one another because of a clerical error…

What’s it really about? Koyuki loves Magical Girls. She reads the manga and plays the online game. Then the in-game avatar comes to life and offers her the chance to become a real magical girl, giving her powers and abilities so that she can help people and collect magical candies. At least that’s how it starts. With one small announcement, it suddenly becomes a relentless battle to be the last one standing.

The Master of Ragnarok & Blesser of Einherjar – Season One

What did you watch and why? I’m a sucker for Norse mythology so the title grabbed my attention, as long as it is! Then I saw the image and there was no turning back.

One line pitch! Teenage time traveller rules ancient lands with the help of smartphone…

What’s it really about? That actually pretty much sums it up. Thanks to his smartphone and access to all of the internet, Yuuto Suoh now controls the Wolf Clan and leads their army against invaders. He’s also surrounded by a group of magic-wielding warrior maidens… tough break!
