"the situations ramp up in hilarity - from the awkward snickers that Catarina's world-uninformed antics arouse near the early episode, right up into the gut-busting ridiculousness of an eight year old recreating The Shining's 'Here's Johnny!' moment in the triumphant climax"
"That was true in episode one, and it's true of episode seven; little has changed. The hook was defined early and hasn't evolved or developed - if anything, it's degraded, because none of this is a system shock anymore."
"Kuutei Dragons takes every bit of background characterisation to build this world of dragon hunters into one of imaginative wonder"
With the season kicking off, how does each show stack up?
"Is this an attempt to expose the shallowness of the idol industry? Considering Miu's cynicism this episode, it might just be."
"It's an odd sort of fun, watching Caiman and Nikaido two hang-out, bicker and slaughter malevolent magicians"
"Kotoko's characterisation is something that logically shrinks, moreso than expands, as she talks more and more"
"There's something moderately pleasant about how silly and lighthearted the whole affair is"
"I think Eizouken went a bit above-and-beyond, and I began to fall in love thanks to that dedication"
