Review | Akame Ga Kill Episode 13-24

*BLOWS DUST* Cough, cough. Hi everyone, it’s been a little while, eh? Yeah, my apologies in regards to that, I put too much on myself this fall season and couldn’t find time to write for everyone I wished to write for. Geekenstein went to the backburner in hopes that I could still do 7-episode reviews in the intermittent times between postings for Laser Time, but then I forgot about holidays and all that junk. Basically, I tried to do...

Review | Aldnoah.Zero Episodes 8-12

Oh wow, if you read my review for the first seven episodes of Aldnoah.Zero’s first cour, you knew that this is a show you need to be ready and prepared for anything. The final 5 episodes of this cour has been a ludicrous ride of action, exposition, and: ‘what the hell? Why?’ In the best ways of course. Aldnoah.Zero has been strong from its start and has provided an exceptionally strong finale before it takes a break for a season to...

Review | Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders Episodes 15-24

Whew, it’s been a while since we’ve talked Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure here at Geekenstein, so let’s play some catchup, eh? When we last left off, Jotaru and crew had been dealing with Enya’s 6 Stand users and were still on their way to Egypt and their ultimate matchup: Dio. Unfortunately this batch of episodes started getting a little bit dull and repetitive for me and resulted in more mundane ‘monster-of-the-week’ storytelling. There’s...

Review | Shirogane no Ishi Argevollen Episodes 8-12

Shirogane no Ishi Argeveollen seems like a show you will both love and keep watching, or you’ve already dropped due to its pacing by this point. I’m in the former camp, partially due to reviewing it for you geeks, and because I genuinely enjoy it every week. I could totally understand why one may have dropped it by now, too. The action has dried up and it has mostly become a character study full of backstory and exposition, but given...

Review | Captain Earth Episode 15-24 Review

It’s been a little while since I’ve talked about Captain Earth, but since it has aired its finale, now seems topical to bring the series back up. Once again, Captain Earth is an original mecha series from Sunrise, directed by Takuya Igarashi (Star Driver), and it holds a lot of the themes of teamwork, friendship, and dichotomy, but ultimately sets itself apart from the rest of the mechas that are out there; but how well does it do so...

You Should Be Watching: Hunter x Hunter (Part 6)

“You should enjoy the little detours. To the fullest. Because that’s where you’ll find the things more important than what you want.” The final, closing words of Ging Freecs ring through my mind for hours on end as the credits close and Hunter x Hunter comes to an end. One of the strongest, most consistently well-written and designed series of all time has finished, and so I must sum its existence as best as I can without running on...
