They reused a lot of scenes for our flashback. While the episode was okay, it didn't do much to resolve Hachibana and Iris's relationship. It was just drama and that Hachibana quit being a nun after losing faith in god after the nuns were burned up in a case of human combustion. The two aren't much scarred from the incident? Their looks and such didn't seem convincing
While it was emotional and nicely animated, it felt a bit anticlimatic how Shinra took down Lieutenant star eyes. Plus without spoilers, Rekka or the star eyes guy reminded me of a similar character in Soul Eater, the previous manga series by the same author in how they became evil and it felt really abrupt and out of character
If you love Tamaki(as pointed above post with the images), she was the character spotlight despite the insect perpetrator case taking most of the action
I can't imagine we're done here. It felt too simple
I thought the case ended. Ep 9 continues the case. I was mistaken. The fan service seems distracting but it doesn't break the show since I seen Soul Eater. Tamaki is becoming the 2nd love interest to Shinra. The reason I said this because Youtube keeps recommending Anime Youtube reviewers. I just haven't found any anime Youtubers worth listening in salt since some of them are just click bait or felt superficial. I notice the episode didn't chime with non ecchi fans. It's understandable. Reminds me of Food Wars when the anime first came out.
I would not put Fire Force on a list of anime series I haven't wrote that shouldn't have fan service and works better without it. Fire Force needs its fan service. Like Fairy Tail and Food Wars too.
Rekka is pretty short lived. Just an plot stone for the characters. At least, we get some build up for another group that is tied to Shinra's family massacre.
Also something weird happened. Why did Arthur leave? I thought this unit was tight knit. They haven't done anything since Arthur left or felt worry. Considering we had Rekka killed off.
Fire Force - I hope it gets a long run. Hopefully that motivates the producers to rekindle the idea of Soul Eater getting another season or remake. Though, I prefer the anime over the manga since Shinigami gets more screentime.
No it is best for Fire Force to have 12 or 24 episodes. Because the longer the series, the more animation deteriorates. Fire Force - animation quality helps it gain viewership unlike Naruto, Black Clover, and One Piece.

Master Menos: Sidebar updated! Taka: My turn to scratch your back, Taka. 2019 me got really messed up with the job. @_@

Taka: Thanks Master Menos! I'll work on finishing the Winter 2020 guide.

Dream: My second Funi poll is done. Titles I will be watching and reviewing will include Chobits, Samurai Champloo, Spice and Wolf, Gankutsuou, and Dance in the Vampire Bund. Will let folks know which one I start off tomorrow at some point.
Jan 11, 2020 5:39:30 GMT
Dream: First anime I will sample among the Funi titles is Chobits. As a heads up, the series on Funi's Youtube channel is missing the two recap episodes the series aired. Not that I'll be missing those however.
Jan 11, 2020 15:13:09 GMT
Dream: Wow, never knew Shinbo was Gil, Sousuke, and Domon. More you know.
Jan 11, 2020 17:52:00 GMT
Dream: Just completed Chobits. Will get a review up for it at some point this afternoon.
Jan 18, 2020 18:37:22 GMT
Dream: Will post a little later what the next voted anime will be that I will watch and review.
Jan 18, 2020 19:48:38 GMT
Dream: Next anime up to cover will be Dance in the Vampire Bund. Suppose a short anime will do for now following Chobits.
Jan 18, 2020 21:32:36 GMT
Dream: Concluding things at episode 2 with Vampire Bund for the night. Hoping to get back to Basquatch tomorrow, as long as I'm not swamped with anything.

Dream: Geez, it's really quiet. No activity in the forums since I posted my review from yesterday.

Taka: I'll email the receipts. The best anime and manga of 2019 will be extended to Wed. I don't get time off for Mon because of community service. Please vote if you haven't yet. Thank you!

Dream: Hmmmm... looks like the version of Vampire Bund I'm seeing on Funi's YouTube channel's an edited version. A couple minutes of episode 2 were clearly removed with Mina in nothing but underwear battling human assassins. Then again, recall there was a good...

Dream: ...deal of controversy with the series a decade earlier thanks to the seemingly underaged nudity of Mina while in her younger form.

Dream: Not sure if I should be donning the nostalgia goggles or not giving a damn. Looks like the original Digimon Adventure series is getting a reboot airing starting in the Spring season.
Jan 21, 2020 3:21:13 GMT
Taka: I'll watch it if there's nothing catching my eye in Spring. winter 2020 was a weak anime season for me.
Jan 22, 2020 18:29:46 GMT
Dream: Wouldn't say it's all bad for me. Have a few titles holding my interest. Just it typically doesn't have as many major titles of note that would hold me over.
