I haven’t covered the three past seasons, but some day I will. Although, I might not want to re-watch the third season at all, because although I started to find this season grating, the previous one was more so. However, in a sense, this is much worse, because Chibiusa completely steals the spotlight from Mamoru Chiba (CV: Tooru Furuya), who barely even showed up in this fourth season of Sailor Moon and is forever a shallow support character. I love Mamoru to death (because I read the comic years ago before watching anything of the show not aired in Sweden) and I don’t really mind Chibiusa, but this season was supposed to be about Mamoru. I could complain about it however much I’d, but it won’t help anyone 19 years after it has aired. Continue reading
Batch posts are posts with shows I drop along the way and sometimes films or OVAs I don’t feel I can give a proper post too.
Heart no Kuni no Alice
I… can’t… even… I don’t know. What did I watch? I don’t know. This film is an adaptation of the game made by QuinRose with the same name, which is the first game in the Alice series. It’s based on Alice in Wonderland (no kidding?) and I’ve played a little bit of it several years ago when I still wasn’t very fluent in Japanese. But this was too confusing. It completely messed me up and I kept looking at the clock. Yuck.
