GIRLS’ LAST TOUR (Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryokou) – ANIME REVIEW

GIRLS’ LAST TOUR (Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryokou) – ANIME REVIEW

Even after some of the more playful episodes, the show never lets go of this eerie sense of dread and loss. The themes about how precious and fragile life is permeates throughout. “Hey, you think a tank tastes good?“ – Yuuri I can’t believe my post-apocalypse is this cute! Sorry, had to say it. Girls’ Last Tour or “Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryokou” is a surprisingly refreshing and relaxing slice-of-life show. It’s based on a Japanese manga series…

Truth – Week of The Lustrous Episode 11 & 12

Truth – Week of The Lustrous Episode 11 & 12

Happy Holidays fellow readers! There were some aspects of episode 11 that left me feeling a bit unsure of how to tackle it. It seemed best to the final two for one big one.

I can’t help but wonder if this…

The topic is merely broached before moving on. For now, it’s just background material; an existential threat that may effect Phos later. Bort isn’t the one to directly notice this. Instead, she’s sizing Phos up for other reasons. Bort is starting to see the kind of determined hardness in Phos that…

Molt – Week of The Lustrous Episodes 8-9

Two episodes as promised! We’re starting off with Episode 8 first. I’ll try to breeze through them, which isn’t indicative of how I felt about the episodes, just touching on the most important parts. They were both great FYI. So Phos is down two arms, which leads to some hasty improvisation on Kongo’s part. The Chord Shore, as it’s called, is where all the gems were born; a massive rock fault that upends crystalized organisms from…

So of the two things that could have happened, Amethyst not dying was the best. And not just for the…
