No Guns Life (Nō Ganzu Raifu) (6)

No Guns Life (Nō Ganzu Raifu) 2019 And now to the final in a series of ‘not an episode review’ posts – this time it’s episodes 11 and 12: First thing I noticed was that perhaps this mid-point doesn’t have a really big cliffhanger to tide everyone over until April – but it still hasContinue reading “No Guns Life (Nō Ganzu Raifu) (6)”

No Guns Life (Nō Ganzu Raifu) (5)

No Guns Life (Nō Ganzu Raifu) 2019 Fifth in a series of ‘not an episode review’ posts – this time it’s episodes 9 and 10: So far there’s been zero follow-up on Olivier and so I’m not sure what the show wants us to assume about her at this point, and the Colt storyline wasContinue reading “No Guns Life (Nō Ganzu Raifu) (5)”

No Guns Life (Nō Ganzu Raifu) (2)

No Guns Life (Nō Ganzu Raifu) 2019 As with my last post on this series, I’ll quickly mention up front that this won’t be an ongoing ‘episode review’ kinda thing, but I will mention bits and pieces from episodes as I go (although I don’t have a schedule in mind either.) So! This time IContinue reading “No Guns Life (Nō Ganzu Raifu) (2)”

Metropolis (Metoroporisu)

Metropolis (Metoroporisu) 2001 Metropolis was fascinating and I know I’ll watch it again – mostly for the visuals and direction rather than the story perhaps (which is kinda conventional but not boring by any stretch). But setting that aside for a moment, another aspect that I found really interesting was the many links to oneContinue reading “Metropolis (Metoroporisu)”
