Amagi Brilliant Park Episodes 1-4 Review (Full Series Review Excerpt)

[Vivid] Amagi Brilliant Park - 03 [9F3D6650].mkv_snapshot_01.45_[2014.10.19_15.48.33]

With Sword Art Online II out of the way and ready to be published, my next project for Funcurve is Amagi Brilliant Park. This is a fun little series I never got to finish when it aired. Just a really playful and silly show that demonstrates KyoAni’s comedy chops really nicely. Not always a hit, but pleasant all around. Preview of my full review comes after the break.

Barakamon Funcurve Review

barakamon1

Sorry I didn’t put a link here sooner. When this got published I didn’t have internet at home, and it was too much of a hassle to put this together on mobile. This is a bit of a wordy review, the longest I’ve ever done because I essentially went through the series episode by episode. Despite that, I said all I needed to say about Barakamon and I’m pretty proud of it. It’s a lovely series with plenty of nice ideas that I enjoyed talking about. Expect my Sword Art Online II review to also be published in the next couple weeks!

You can find the Barakamon review here on Funcurve.

Sword Art Online II Episodes 1-7 Review (Full Series Review Excerpt)

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 07 [720p].mkv_snapshot_02.23_[2015.07.08_15.35.48]

My Barakamon review for Funcurve is done, and you can expect it published soonish along with a blog post linking to it. It’s a little bit wordy, but I said all I wanted to say. Now I’m on to Sword Art Online II! If anything, I think Sword Art Online is fun and easy to write about. It’s a series with a particular charm to it that just makes me want to like it despite all the nasty stuff it does. Sword Art Online II is a legitimate improvement with slightly less nasty stuff, but not as much of one as I would like. After the break you’ll find a little snippet of the first part of my review. Hope you like it!

Barakamon Episode 1 Review (Full Series Review Excerpt)

[Underwater] Barakamon - 01 (720p) [CBC45C87].mkv_snapshot_03.19_[2015.06.07_12.38.58]

So, I’m writing for this new site called Funcurve now! Basically it’s a website where reviews are structured by a chart of our impressions of the series over time, which is a pretty neat system. Plus, we’re given free rein over the way we work with that chart. I’ve been asked to review Barakamon, which is great because Barakamon is a wonderful series that I’m super happy to rewatch and write about. Expect a full review in the next month or so. For now, I’ve got an excerpt from my first draft of the review. I decided I’d start by doing the first episode individually, because I feel it’s a really great first episode that stands on its own. You can find it below. Enjoy!
